Default Invisible Predator

Here's a real challenge I think. You have seen the stealth suit in the tau codex (or a GD one year, i forget) which is "invisible", blended into the background scenery when you look at it from a certain angle?

Im planning on trying this with a predator mini, (no, not the space marine predator tank : the Predator from the movies with optic camouflage).

Here he is from the invisible angle, firstly:



If you squint you can still see the predator mini's outline. ;D










Ok i lied, thats just the base, no mini yet lol xD





Will practise with an old mini first, then have a go with the Predator.
Just ... later, i got to finish painting part of GF's xmas present :-X

Git...


Here's where you can find the article detailing how the guy did it in White Dwarf. The tip where he mentions adding a tag to the model's base so it always returns to the same position seems like a good one, if you hadn't already planned on doing so.

Thanks MT, i was looking for that ;D Im just going to stick the mini onto the base, so there is no messing around with tabs. This may well be an epic fail, but still, worth a try.

Thanks Skeith, and yes sir :-[ *salutes*
Im doing this one

as she likes sexy half naked demon fairies ^-^ lol

The disadvantage of a small sscreeen meant that the I lied didn't appear with the picture making me squint for a good couple of minutes at the picture... You git!

Can't wait to see. Though a spacemarine predator would be more impressive.
