    I really like this mold and I even didn't mind the green color, which is why I left a bit of it show through. I painted over the green with a light coat of acrylic flat black and then dry brushed Tamiya Flat aluminum. I added gold accents and a bit of rust and wear. I did not like his left hand much, which is why I replaced it with a more articulated one. Comments are wlecome:)

    Did you actually replace the hand or did you just add to it? Either way, it looks awesome.

    Awww. how come they didn't make the leader class that good. Great job with the mod SktchRtst! Was that Joker from your avatar done manually or did you use painter or photoshop for it?

    Really? I can't even tell exactly where you cut it off. That's really good.

    The Joker was drawn with colored pencils on cardboard. I posted it in the fan art section. Here's a link:

    Thanks for all the comments everyone!
