um, i;m guessing this should go here as what i painted is more like a model kit that a statue or figure. my wife bought this bust for me on sale half price due to slight paint damage. i have no idea who makes these, but obviously its a knock off. still, for $100 it was worth it for painting alone:

thats what i thought till i started painting this thing. i have never done something this big, with so much space! i'm used to hulk figures arounf 8 inches, or warhammer 40k miniatures. my last paint job on scar 12 incher was big enough, but he had small details. easy for hand paint ting. this thing however needs an airbrush, some thing i must invest in i think. so it started off bad, with my original paint scheme not working at all. then as it started looking up, paint started to peel for no reason. i alway undercoat, this has never happened to me, very frustrating. any how, here he is. i still may add a clan symbol on his bio, but at the moment im over looking at it!

I see someone has a thing for green
i guess i do have a thing for green. but this time it came from the easy factor. i first sprayed this all black for undercoat. i was goint to do a nice red armour. but that didnt work out. i just so happend to pick up a can of green indercoat/primer for hulk customes, and thought, why not! made painting the armour just a wee bit easier i think. plus it came out very neat due to spraying. i really need an airbrush i think.
