    Definitely one of the best characters so far. I was lucky enough to get an unclipped version.

    What method did you use for his pincers. I'm planning on repainting him but i never painted that rubbery plastic before.

    I primed the grey parts with Model Masters Flat Black acrylic first. Then drybrushed with Model Masters Steel enamel.

    See above. MM FBA to prime, then drybrush with MM Steel. It seems to work much better on the flexible parts than Flat Black Enamel.

    Thanks lad. I was a bit worried about the pincers flaking what with them being flexible.
