  1. That's a bloody good paint job! And that base looks so much better like that, great idea
  2. Looking great! If you put a clear hemisphere over the top of the space jockey that would make a really cool ornament
  3. Thank you I appreciate the interest! I'm afraid hes a one off, but I take that as a big compliment so thanks!
  4. Right, little update time! I'm very near to completing the purchase of my first house, so with all the stress of that I've not had much time to model, but I have managed to squeeze a bit of painting in on this guy. I still need to fill his head and limbs, but all the waist bits are fine so I have just decided to paint them just to get an idea of colour scheme (and to make me feel like I'm getting somewhere!) Started by giving all the bits a black gloss undercoat and then masked off the bits for the purple colour IMG_20190502_133941 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20190503_133646 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20190503_133906 by Nick Frost, on Flickr And I have used a matte dark grey too, I like a mixture of gloss and matte, so I masked and sprayed it on.

Thanks for looking, more soon
  5. That shield looks quality Brian!
  6. Cheers Will! Yes I am but keeping it very light on the chipping, definitely some dry brushing of the darker bits too
  7. Okay, time for an update! I noticed that the is a fairly large gap about two thirds of the way round where the tentacles meet the wooden base, IMG_20190410_132452 by Nick Frost, on Flickr So I rolled some more greenstuff for extra tentacles shapes to fill the gap discreetly IMG_20190410_133218 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20190410_134406 by Nick Frost, on Flickr And when thats dry I'll paint it the same blue to blend it in. For now I also made a start brushing some pigments over the edges and seam lines of his armor using graveyard dirt, which is my favourite mig pigment; it can be a very simple way to add some very effective shadowing/dirt to make your finish pop a little more. It can be a little more subtle in photos than it appears in reality so the first pic is before I've added it just to show a comparison with the subsequent photos where I've brushed it over IMG_20190411_134100 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20190411_134323 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20190411_133043 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20190411_133719 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20190411_134030 by Nick Frost, on Flickr Basically Im using the pigment to add post shading, and I'mm pretty pleased with how hes looking, its giving more life to the originally pretty flat paint job. Next up I'll continue with that, and start getting some bits together for his laser. Thanks for looking, more soon
  8. Aside from the wings, not doing any physical mods to the kit, just the new crazy paint job. Speaking of paint my mr crystal amethyst arrived! And its pretty wierd looking paint, its a creamy colour but when the light catches it its purple IMG_20190405_133601 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20190405_133639 by Nick Frost, on Flickr Thats basically the effect you get when spraying it on gloss white, like a pearlescent effect, but when sprayed on black it gives a really iridescent metalic purple finish. So to start with I did a test spray using alclad base gloss black as the undercoat. IMG_20190405_133342 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20190411_132812 by Nick Frost, on Flickr Im really over the moon with this colour, its really cool the way it catches the light and gives a seriously vivid finish. I also bought the Moonpearl mr crystal paint, which is basically like a crazy shiny dark silver which I will also use on him. Basically he's going to be a mix of the metallic purple and silver, and matte dark/medium grey and gloss black. I'm really looking forward to getting this paint scheme together! For now I've still got the head/leg/forearm seams to deal with before painting gets really under way, so thats whats up next. Thanks for looking, more soon
  9. Definitely! Really nice details your adding, the extra leg boosters are a great idea!
  10. Yeah its funny you should mention Ma.k as I'm dealing with the joints in the same way as one of there power suits, pin the joints and then cover with greenstuff and use that to create my joint covers, though I'll have to be careful as these are quite large in comparison and it may be tricky to keep it smooth with no join lines where its smooshed together. And as for mods and things I had said this will be OOB but screw it, just you talking about things I can add has got me thinking Will! I have some paint for my wing zero kit called mr crystal amethyst which when sprayed over gloss white gives a very cool pearlescent effect, which is now how I'm going to paint this guy paired with black joint covers stormtrooper style! Also the chunky back aerials are out, I will replace them with some Ma.k Fliege type wings/fins and add some engine bells so he will be a flying mech now. At the minute with the build still need to smooth out those joints with some squadron white, but just wanted to spell out the new direction I'm taking him in, so he'll still be a Brocken Labour, but a Schaft Enterprises experimental flight version. Thanks for looking, more soon
  11. Wow! Excuse me while I get my jaw off the floor
  12. That looks amazing, the weathering and finish is really quality and I love that you've put a figure in to give him scale. Nice one!
