A request from a fellow realmer....
The military edition of the U-87 Cylon was featured in the finale of Caprica as a commander in the "Battle of the Atlas Arena". Fitted with camouflage armor and ammo clips, this Cylon bears a similar resemblance to the centurions they later become.
I used a DST Cylon Pilot base- cut down the top of the hemet and remolded it. Then completely remolded the chest-plate for show accuracy, as well as the mouth piece. Then I painted the camo effect on the armor with a few different grays, blacks, and a white. Lastly, I hand painted some decals on the chest and shoulders, and added the ammo clips from a cylon commander figure.

And the decals are a nice touch---I just looked at reference images, and they're not far off.

Now I'm thinking you've amassed enough of a portfolio to impress DST and get yourself a job there Very cool! You know, some 1/6th scale weapons are almost in scale with the DST Cylons---you might be able to find something similar to the rifles they used in that scene (the closest real-world analogue is the FN SCAR, I think). Anyway, keep up the good work. I'm running out of suggestions!
