Custom #:23261  
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:"V"
Date Added:July 26, 2010
Base Figure:Safs
Height:3.00 inches
I picked my self up a few of these little 1/35th scale figures of the net and decided to start doing a few single figures an different types of paint schemes.

When the figures arms were is the pose I wanted I super glued them inplace and then pinned and super glued it to the base. Once the glued dried I used Vallejo, GW paints, pastels and a lead pencil to weather the figure and base.


SAFS - The SAFS came in a box of five and has different arms included, I picked the arms I wanted and as mentioned before super glued them in place. I also added wire from the back of the feet to the lower section using thin wire.

Base - The base I got from the local games shop and are called BACK 2 BASE - IX and you get 3-5 bases depending on the size. The snow I also picked up from the local games shop

HI All
Cheers guys and glad you liked it, and blaynescott I just use a 0.5 marbig lead pen the type you add the this lead pieces to. I just sand some lead down and brush on with a fine paint brush.
You can also get 1/20th figures there actually nodels but some do have minor articulation in them.

I found out about these mechas via the "addictedtoplastic" blog - although, I wanted to get them to go the opposite way you did - make them move articulated. Sadly, they're a bit too small for my tastes - if they were at least 5" tall, I'd be all over them. ^_^
You did a fantastic job painting this one - and the lead pencil sounds like an excellent idea for weathering. Do you use graphite school-style pencils, or one of the softer, art types?
