Heh, nothing wrong with Elder-fests, it's such a cool pred design! Next up, not sure exactly what his name is but according to this, he's called: Lost Hunter
I've also got a City Hunter about 30% complete, and will be picking up a Snake, Gort, Borg and maybe a Ram when they're released. Thinking of painting up the Gort in gray skin tones just like the HT Guardian Pred; it might not be screen accurate but I love that colour scheme.
Just fyi, his skin is more green/yellow than the pics suggest. Might redo those photos when the weather is less cloudy...
Been a while since I last updated, but I've got a few more to add to the Lost Clan. This time around, it's City Hunter, Gort and Snake as well as a group shot:
I'm not too happy about his skin tones, seems much to pale to me but I didn't really notice until I put his armour on and stood him up on my shelf. Too much work to detach everything and I'm far too lazy to repaint the lot. To be honest I'm getting sick of painting the body netting. It's difficult to source NECA figs in Sydney but if I do get another City Hunter, I may do a version 2.0
Gort's colour scheme is based on the HT Guardian Pred which I absolutely love but cannot justify the expense for. So this is my own little version of my fave pred.
My interpretation of Snake, based on a Boar Brother/Stalker figure. The base fig, accessories and dreads are either from Boar Brother or my spares box, but the head was taken from a spare unmasked P1. I didn't add the secondary teeth to his lower mandibles, though I probably should have... I also rearranged the waist armour to slightly resemble a samurai's thigh armour. Also note the unlucky Berzerker's skull draped over his shoulder and his jaw hanging around Snake's neck. Revenge for Classic's death in the movie? Perhaps. My reasoning is that these Lost Hunters may from time to time track down bad bloods and bring them to justice.
Group shot so far. Next up will be a Borg and perhaps an updated Wolf.
Replaced his torso and biceps with those from a spare Berserker to give him a slimmer physique. Feet and rear loincloth were from a spare P1. Full repaint and gloss varnish layer for that pred-sweat look.
Updated: Shaman v2
I decided to redo some of my older preds. I again replaced Shaman's torso and biceps with my old Berserker custom for similar reasons to Borg. From screenshots it seemed to me that these two in particular were slimmer than the other Lost Preds. Also added a mask from an old Wolf Pred.
Below is a recent group shot. P2 is missing as he's next up for the v2 treatment. I'm also thinking about finding right-sized human skulls to add in as trophies to the Lost Pred's belts etc. maybe a handful in fabric netting, or a skull with its top cut off and used as a medicine/ammo pouch.
Completely revised my old P2 and decided to experiment with some bandages to reduce the visible skin and give him a more "clothed" look. Added extra armour plates on knees, feet and shoulder, as well as a wrist-mounted plasmacaster.
