The builder really captured the uncomfortable nature of giant shoulder pads at awkward angles, and you captured all the rest with your brush skills. This whole thing is one giant trap! Great stuff :)

He looks like he can he feel something imagined by Giger wriggling around inside his stomach...

Awesome paintjob by the way!

That's just great - lovely paint job on a clever conversion. Although if I were taking a space marine captive I'd take his power armour off. I guess sculpts of marines in their underwear just aren't that common.

Reading that back it sounds a little more kinky than I intended...

There was a discussion about this elsewhere, regarding how strong that chain would have to be etc. Note that the armours power plant has been removed (its on the ground, stage right), so I imagine that he is pretty seized up in there. Like the Tin Man in The Wizard of Oz.

Thanks for the kind words folks, it was fun to paint.

Bit of a come down form the last entry but:

#21 I've never painted a squat, or a Bob Olley Figure, before.

Because apparently everyone else has. I'll confess it was a conscious decision as I've never been much of a fan of Mr Olley's work - they're almost the complete opposite of the cartoony 'Marauder' style I love. It's therefore no con-incidence that this is the least 'Bob O' squat of the bunch but you know how it is. A man will do anything for a virtual badge!

Looks great to me ! How did you like painting him ? Didn't it change your view in the sculpt (or maybe it requires a strong Olley one with loads of wrinkles to feel the Olley efect working).

Thanks. Figure was fine to paint but I can't say it changed my opinion. I'm not a big fan of the wonky face aesthetic generally. The wrinkles on his other stuff, however, really do put me off. And it's not just a Bob Olley thing. I love Kev Adams' zombies as figures I just don't like painting them. I guess I'm just a gentle layerer at heart who hasn't adapted to those new fangled washes and glazes. Or to paraphrase, i'm a dinosaur with no taste!

Beautiful, rich colours with plenty of depth. Lovely sci-fi goodness :)

I've never painted a limited edition Mark Copplestone Oldhammer Bring Out Your Lead! 2015 post apocalyptic space punk before...

There ain't many perks to trying to organise BOYL, but I guess this is one of them...

I wrote up a story for him too, if that sort of thing floats your boat...
