When a Microman Predator figure arrived in the mail from an a website seller with a shattered knee and arm, I decided to both repair the toy, and make it into something new.
After supergluing the two fractured joints (successfully too - the figure is super sturdy, and still articulated), began the following process of conversion from an AvP movie predator, to the masked, bronzed armor version:
-Removed partial predator mask from figures shoulder
-Reduced the size of the wrist blades, super glued them in place
-Affixed the mini-faceplate to the figures head, sculpted the rest of the mask around it
-Painted the dreadlocks black with silver holder
-Painted all armor and weapons black, then dry brushed on gunmetal Gray
-Painted all armor and accessories with Citadel "Flesh Wash", my standby rust-effect paint.
-Detailing with Black Citadel paint, and Vallejo Black Wash
-Sealed with Vallejo Matte finish varnish
-Figure base-stand was a DC Direct figure base, covered with hobby plaster. After it dried, I sanded it, painted it black, and dry brushed it with 3 different shades of blue-gray.
-Sealed the base with Krazyglue-superglue, then a spray sealant coat of Citadel Matte finish.
