Well the base is finally done. Airbrushed and dry brushed in acrylic with oil and ink washes and given about 5 coats of gloss varnish. I will add Alien goo when the whole kit is done. Onto the main Predator kit.

I'm Back

The Death Warrior build has started again.
I had to stop due to ill health and then had a ton of commisions to do.
for these.
Today I painted the base and Alien heads black then over-sprayed with white.
Next I will be applying washes to build up colour.

Assembly looming

Tomorrow I will start to assemble the Pred into sections. Every thing keys so well I can get away with painting in sections.
There is a small amount of puttying to do on the chin of an Alien I just noticed.
I will start with the base I think, painting then assembling after.

More spraying and the spikes

Today I sprayed the rest of the Predator up.
Also I added spikes to the head,cheers and top of arm.
These really make the Pred look menacing I feel.
I couldn't get porcupine spines but used bristles off the garden broom cut to size.

Started priming

Today I started priming the Pred kit.
I'll start with the base, alien head,arm and tail.
The tail was pinned and the tail spike glued in place.
Here you can see the base roughly assembled.

Predator given his bath

So I cleaned up the seam lines, of which there were hardly any, and then drilled holes for the metal hoops etc.
After that I gave Predator a bath in detergent and scrubbed all over with a tooth brush to get rid of any mold release before priming.

Metal parts laid out

Here are some of the hoops,chains and hooks I will be using in the Predator build.
I have to find some small pins so off to the craft shop tomorrow for them hopefully.
