I've been seeing a few Halo customs here at Radicons, so I thought I'd add my spin on my favorite character in the series. I'm no big Halo fan, but I do like the good old BW Dinobot style "powerful elite enemy joins good guys" routine. I actually fired up Halo3 2 player co-op and used both controllers to get Arbiter out in the sunlight and use his actual in game model as reference while painting this. I got some screens and a pic of a cool statue too from the internets so you guys could compare too. Arbiter's colors were pretty dull so I made him a bit more metallic, shiny, and colorful to give him more life. Armor is my own blend of chrome silver and gold. Skin is dry-brushed mix of gray and plum crazy. Teal bands (my favorite color!) are games workshop hawk turquoise. I gave the armor washes in shades of gold/black mix for the old worn effect, and painted in lots of little details.
