-Resculpted facescreen, and repainted in a Tron-esk color scheme.
-Hardplastic, raised, painted sticker for his "HAL900"-esk eye.

-x5 "4" logo stands all came from a FF4 Boxed set. Used a very thick, watery model paint to create a pearly-white, uniform surface over the dirty-white that the stands came with.

-"4" logos were designed in Photoshop, sized and printed on Testor white decal paper.
-After being applied, I used a very fine sharpie to outline them in black, along with Ben Grims rocky skin, and other high-contrast/shadow areas (belts, etc.)

-All figures were repainted head to toe in Vallejo acrylics. All large black areas were painted with Testor flat black acrylic. Figures were then sealed with liquid type Superglue, and sealed with Vallejo Matte varnish.

Man the planning you do for this is wild. I just grab a paint bottle and go for it without testing colors to see what works better lol.

Thanks for the compliments everyone! These were actually an evolution of a customers design request. I've included some more images below. I'll be posting each figure individually to the 'Realm, but here's some WiP images and one detailed shot of the group.
Cheers,
