It has been a long process, but the feet are finally up!



Scraped a bit of paint of the top of the foot but I won't be redoing the piece cos it will be covered up by armour anyway. Still, it's quite depressing to have that happen.

Sprayed part of the soles silver, since it came as a separate part anyway. I will be applying silver to the underside of the flaps on the shoulders and skirt too.

Love the articulation of the feet. The trade off is the effort expended in preparing the number of parts used to assemble it.

Here's the foot disassembled. The cool thing about PG is that all the parts are cast in their respective colours, even the smallest ones, like the red on the toes.

After just under two weeks, I only have a pair of feet and arms to show for my efforts.

The subsequent days will be spent building the rest of the legs. I'd expect it to take about 5 - 6 days.

  1. lookin good so far! the grey paint on the leg looks a bot thick & un-even tho'. wondering why you dont use modeling paint?

    thanks Marcus. Think it's cos I didn't spray piece by piece, and misted over each part. Will try spraying each piece one by one and hope it works out better. Modelling paint too exp lah.
