Going with the Alien 3 version. You must be a company man.

Not really dude, my kit is black multicam. I went for a more tactical look.
My next plan is to build a second rifle based on the Colonial Marines game (ammo counter on the left).
I am unsure how I will paint that one, I'm not really a fan of Brown Bess...

I have only seen a few done in black and yours looks really nice.

Thank you sir.

I like it. but if I had a criticism its the amount of weathering. When all the edges are weathered like that it looks a bit "off" The way I do it is I lay the item (in this case an awesome pulse rifle) on its side on a table. anywhere it can reasonably touch when its on its side and jostled around is where I weather. That way the scraping looks realistic. I hope that makes sense. and this is NOT a knock on your paintjob - just sharing what I do for my scrapes on guns and such :)

I hear you dude. My original plan was to have a "pristine" black paintjob, as I see the shroud as being plastic, not metal (to reduce weight - makes sense for a futuristic weapon), but I kept getting a reaction between the two different layers (2 different brands of paint).
After retrying unsuccessfully 3 times, I went "**** it" and beat the crap out of it. Thank you for your input.
