Okay - it's a work in progress thats nearing completion.



Took me 2 and a half hours.

But I have to admit that the crisis boxed sets frigging rock!

Like the others, I am left with the feeling of "What the **** is he wearing on his head," but the rest is well cool

Nice pose and claws. Not too sure about the hat though, it makes him look like Raiden. :P

I\'m rather fond of the hat. The shot just makes it looks like it\'s just been \"plonked\" on. When I look at normally it looks like it is all one piece.

Besides - from a more top down view it looks all dark and mysterious.

See?

Oh and the claws - I thought I must a way for her rather good close combat capabilities (espicially in the tau list, it's almost as good as an unarmed boss!) and if Mr. Farsight can have shiney toy - why not me?

Yeah - like I said, it's only around 80% finished - still need to do some gs-ing like you said. Add the odd cable here, maybe a bit of ankle armour there.

The claws are taken from dark elder splinter rifles.
