Decided to make Freefall from Paratrooper Duke:
And the reference pic:
very cool dude. very cool indeed
Painted the boots, brought the tan paint up to par, and finished the camo detailing on the front.
Need to finish painting the camo detailing on the back.
I'm not big on Sigma 6 figures, but Freefall is one of my favorite old-school figures, and you did a pretty nice job color matching. Looking forward to seeing the final product.
Not really sure if I'm liking the camo as it is right now.
I'm thinking maybe drybrushing over the green patches to blend it in more with the tan.
Camo's fine to me... *shrug*
I think you should dry brush it too.
I would think about doing a wash instead of dry brusing. I think it would suite the style of camo you did better than dry brushing.
How do you do washes? I've never done it before.
Did a once over of the figure with some drybrush brown. I felt that the tan was just too bright. So the brown helps tone it down quite a bit.
Also started paint on the accessories.
what does it transform into?
Nothing that merits spamming. Knock it off please.
its not spamming. its a legitimate query.
i just thought since the sub-forum is distinctively describe TF custom and kitbash, thats what the threads should be about.
(unless of course we have a sub-forum to include non-TFs customs and kitbash, which is not an unreasonable suggestion).
While the majority of kitbashes and customs in our Radicons forum is TF or TF related, it was never exclusively TF. All customs and kitbashes go into this forum.
you should make a redline one already. seein' how I can't find a mold around here anyways...
You know, I was just thinking about what I could make an extra Sigma Strike Duke into.
I wanted to make a Viper with that Sigma Strike Duke's head and helmet with Shockwave's body, leaving me an extra Shockwave head and an extra Sigma Strike Duke body.
Only thing is, the accessories that Sigma Strike Duke come with don't really fit with REDLINE's weapons. I mean, Sigma Strike Duke has a BFG.
Easy...3 or 4 parts water to one part paint. Brush it on and let it dry. You can play with the mixture to get one you feel comfortable woorking with. The thin mixture will run into all cracks and creases and leave a murky dirty haze it other areas. If you put too much on it's easy to take off (if you use acrylic paint), because its on so thin you can just take off any excess with an eraser. I have a good article in my favorites on my home PC that explains in depth and gives some good techniques. I'll link it up after work.
This is just too easy, why did you have to go and set yourself up like that? I'll be good and let it slide this time.
And I am done!
