I may go back in and put just a small touch of gold on the aquillias wings. The small, riveted rib on the outside edge. Just to give it a little something something. I'll see when I get the torso painted and can hang both pauldrons. But moving on, I've started painting on the biceps and elbows. I'll try and knock them all out at once. The only other outstanding pieces yet are the right hand glove and forearm. And... I still have to build the damn thighs. That will be at the end, I'm enjoying painting too much. That's it for now, stay tuned for more...

Lots of progress to share. Revisited the pauldron with the aquillia on it and added just a touch of gold to the rim

It's just a slight coat to give it some tint as I didn't want it to stand out too much. Next was the elbows and biceps. The left hand has a relic paint scheme on the elbow

That's it for now. I'm starting on the torso paint next. That'll take a while. There's lots of real estate to cover. Stay tuned for lots more...

Torso progress pics to share. Man this thing has a lot of yardage to block in. The blue color usually takes 2 coats to cover. Sometimes more. I don't use plastic dip on any of my pieces, I think it's a waste of money. Other people swear by it, that's fine. I'd rather spend my money on something else. Anyway, here's the goods

Along the way, I had been replaying some missions on space hulk and ran across a piece of gear I hadn't noticed before. The iron halo that you get at the end of 1 of the missions. I had made provisions for the rams skull but didn't notice the halo. I knocked 1 out of PVC and scraps of foam in about 2 hours. Here it is

I made this so it's removable. The hole in the top of the armor fits pretty snug. Still have some details on the right side to block in and then all the weathering to do. Stay tuned, lots more on the way...

More torso progress to share. Got everything blocked in and started detailing. Here we go

I was a little worried about the gold lettering showing up against the metallic background. Once I grunge washed it and everything darkened up I knew the bright gold that I planned on using to highlight would make it pop.

I also switched gears and decided to use a different 3d printed ram's skull. I had bought this awhile ago and couldn't make up my mind between this and the one I printed. This one is a little smaller but has filigree decorations that I really liked.

This is just black base with careful gold dry brushing so as to pick out the details and not make a mess out of it.

https://photos.app.goo.gl/4GiFJyJ5NwjsBt4t8
I also added a few more details to the lower back portion where the hydraulic vents are. It seemed too big of a space for how small the vents are
https://photos.app.goo.gl/ktMRhj6UyP8kx7nj8
The rectangle box at the top houses 4 LEDs. The clear 1 is a blinking yellow for low level warning for something. I thought the copper would give it some punch and lend an old world technology vibe to it. That's all for the moment. Stay tuned, the finish line is in sight...

Reached a milestone today. Finished the cables last night and polished off the librarius book for his back and got everything mounted. Here's the goods

I had some green leather and lion head buttons left over from the belt buckle and shins and I thought I'd add some more detail to the cables than just steel bands. The blk/yellow and orange hoses are just spray painted corrugated wire loom that you can get from just about anywhere. I did give them a coat of flat black to give the colors something to stick to. Next is the book. This went pretty quick as there isn't much to it

https://photos.app.goo.gl/B1Ux8HrhxGpGhGRi9
Here's a few small details that had to be finished also
https://photos.app.goo.gl/wn723ghW1XoaugJi9

https://photos.app.goo.gl/h6doUoLaiFTvRLxh9
On top by the rams skull was a couple that weren't finished either. I had to lengthen the wires for the 2 LEDs under the skull then attach the loom

Simple black tie straps drybrushed with metallic make for a good cable management. Here's some of the book mounted down with the straps

The book is literally screwed down to the roof. The straps are just decorative. Last up are some full Monty shots of the torso and shoulder pauldrons. This has been a long time coming

A couple of these pics are kinda dark. My phone was doing some weird things. There's a ton of lights on in this room. Who knows . Anyway, gotta clean up some stuff and then start on the thighs. These should go quick. Stay tuned for the finish...
