    So this would be my first custom. I'm trying to emulate what Zildjian(sp) and Frenzy_Rumble and others have done on the forums. Figured I'd take a wack at it so this is going to look pretty similar. I've used gloss black engine enamel as a base with testors Chrome spray enamel. The accents are gold and brass testors enamel paints brushed on.

    Edit: Added the leg's and some of the details painted in Brass and Gold. Going to try and finish the arms and the murder arm in the next two weeks.

    Test fitting his left arm. It's going to look significantly different once I actually get to work this weekend. and finish painting his arms,wait for his hand's to show up in the mail. and he'll be done...Finally.


    Suggestions?


    Update:11/16/09
    Finished pics of his regular arms and the murder arm is comming later on this week.[​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Just posted two new pic's of the murder arm that's still far from finished. The other sides not on for the smaller blade.and I still haveto apoxy,sand,and paint it. the point on the shoulder was also removed. Never liked the big pointy piece sticking out. The elbow joint is made from two lego technic pieces.
