Predator VS. Land Raider, fight to the death!!

This weekend, I had the pleasure of being sequestered in Gouldsboro Maine, on vacation. Well, just a lovely weekend and a pair of tanks stood between me and perfection.
This is a shield I took off a SM command sprue arm. I couldn't find an adequate stand alone shield so I had to improvise. I'm really pleased with the results.

A couple of decals off the baneblade sheet made for some really interesting kill markings.

This is the finished product commission LR for my pal Nick.

PREDATORS was a rad movie, and the GW kit ain't half bad

Here's my latest work on the Predator tank w/reinforced armor. Let's face it, any tank for the Imperial Fists has gotta be beefy. The reinforced armor gives it that built up look. Like the rest of my Forge World pieces I've ever recieved, the armor required some work to get onto the kit.
This piece is by no means finished. I have the basic vomit brown finish applied and the flesh ink to the recesses as well as boltgun to the metallic portions. I jumped back into painting this weekend because my wife works as a manager for a clothing store. Part of her duties includes helping to open new chain stores in our area. So she headed up to Houlton, Maine(note; this area is north of the portion of Maine that is so poorly populated they aren't named. Unless you consider 'district R6-17' a name for a town). Needless to say there wasn't much to do. So I slung paint all weekend! My efforts did not go unrewarded.

The rock is my niece' pet rock 'Bob'. He doesn't stand a chance against the Imperiums' mightiest sons.
