Another one of my original customs... I bring you the "Heavy Artillery Cylon".
I had this idea that when the cylons attacked the 12 colonies, they would need a well armored/equipped centurion to overthrow Colonial Military bases. My design featured a taller, heavily armored centurion with an extra pair of arms, rifles attached at each hip, a bazooka strapped to its back, and a retractable shoulder launcher (kinda like the Predator).
For the recipe, I was going to sculpt everything from scratch, but was lucky enough to find a robot from the re-imagined Lost in Space. I took it completely apart and spray painted it silver. Then, using hot water, took a cylon centurion apart to keep all articulation. I pieced together the new body using glue, some molding, and a little patience. Then painted details here and there to blend the 2 together. I had a ton of guns in my fodder box, so I made notches in the thigh for the holsters of the 2 rifles, then painted a bazooka and sanded down the trigger to fit in the back and hand, and lastly re-worked the trigger of the shoulder gun to fit in the hole on top the shoulder, as well as on its back for the "retractable" effect.
I think this guy turned out pretty close to my vision, and is a pretty menacing looking cylon.

Anks. I had a few images where he was doing this crawling type of thing- totally disturbing looking, but I thought it would be a little too "general grievous"
