    At long last, one of these guys is ready to go. First up, Long Haul, which was painted like the rest, using various shades of Testors Model Master enamels. I started with a Krylon Fusion Ultra Flat Black base, then airbrushed several different hues of green and purple. I used the different colors strategically, to create a worn and weathered effect. I also used a little drybrushing here and there, following Frenzy_Rumble's tutorial since I had never done it before. Afterwards, he was coated in Testors Dullcote lacquer and reassembled. Water slide decals were provided by Boggs6ft7.

    The rest are coming, they'll be posted as they are cured and reassembled.

    He does have purple, its very subdued though. Its a very darkened shade, his chest, waist, arms and thighs are this color.

    Thanks everyone! His head has been sculpted, and in the process of being casted. I wanted it casted in clear resin so I can put LED's in for the eyes, but had some difficulties doing it myself so I outsourced it. Should be getting it back in a few days.
