AMS-129 GEARA ZULU [GUARDS TYPE]- Ace/Sniper aka 'The Wanker' as he takes potshots from behind everyone else and takes all the glory for his kills!

Tried to imitate those cheesy hunting poses you see but the lack of flexibility made it a bit hard! Also tried to do the  'Come at me bro' hand gesture!

Handpainted using Vallejo's (Gunmetal, Brass, Reflective Green and Black Green)

BFG/Sniper Gun- After market by MSG (?) Painted with Gunmetal, black and woodgrain

Ball from the early twin ball set....had great fun taking the butane burner to that one! Painted in silver and back and weathered with MIG exhaust effect. Note to self...plastic fumes not good and when using butane burner, the plastic will melt after the fact!

Also, need to invest in a dusting brush.....noticed some bits that are a bit crusty!

Very nice Tristan.  Looks really, really cool.  I might not be a fan of torturing that poor ball though.  You are very, very mean.

Your hand painting is approaching demi god tier.

Very, very nice mate. I'm a little surprised to see something so clean emerge from your dungeon!
