I have been working on this suit for a while now. I originally wanted to base it on Milks paint-up of Narins Bad Blood, but time and desire to sculpt accurate parts before the Con, wasn't with me.


He made his debut at Armageddon Melbourne last weekend, with great success.

He is based on Bob Bagy's Super Black pred skin with one of Bob's open mouth Wolf masks. The armour parts are primarily from Uratz, and the shins are a set of Mannowars' Wolf style.
Unfortunately the spikes didn't hold well enough witht he epoxy resin I used to glue them to the gaunt and shoulder bell, and some of them were purloined by trophy seekers whilst having their photo taken with me :mad: .

The color choice is interesting, I like it. Its nice to change things up every once in a while. I would suggest adding some to it though, to make it look less flat, add some color mottling in the same color family to give is a most skin like appearance. Great job though. Forms are nice, the sculptural detail is great.

There are probably a half dozen shades of grey. Every batch of paint I mixed usually ended up a different shade. There are also some browns in there as well. I wanted something different for this suit. My 3 previous paint-ups of other suits have been tradional colors, ie. skin tones, browns, greens, black etc. For this Con, I usually try to paint something for shock value.

I can see what you mean about different greys. The thing is you need to layer the colors with a latticework or honey come effects or spatter them on to built the skin effect, or it is kinda flat. You have a really good base. I would just recommend adding some more. Work in washes with darker tones and lighter, layer it up.
