    There seems to be a flux of non TF customs so I thought I'd throw this into the mix... This was a follow up project from my previous Halo Spartans. It was more of a test piece on whether it could be chromed due to the soft plastic. Instead of using VM for the chrome finish, I sprayed this figure with Alsa. This/these figures are a b!tch and a half to take apart.. or maybe I just need more time to study them. I'm sure there is a trick to taking them apart. The chrome finish came out great and is very durable. It's currently on Ebay now since I have no use for it. Comments, critiques and complaints are always welcome :)

    thats awesome. you should try another and just do the visor in gold chrome and the rest of the body in regular paint.

    unless youve already done that...

    Thank you!

    Thanks! No, I haven't done that yet version yet. I think I'm done with the Halo figs for a while, I have a few commission jobs that will keep me busy for now.

    The chrome paint used is made by Alsa. You'll need an airbrush, a good basecoat and plenty of practice. Good luck!

    Oh yes. That is so much WIN. Now all you need is the blue chrome version (like the one you made from the Mega Bloks Spartans).
