Thanks for the comments, always appreciated.  :thumbup:
It took probably 10 - 15 hours all told to paint. Enthusiasm was the main problem and spending most of my painting time doing other people's miniatures didn't help.  :lol:

It is a cool miniature to paint, but a real pain to handle because of the weight and all those  :swear: spikes. I think if Andy sculpted it today he could improve the design no end, and maybe shorten the abdomen a segment or three?

@Daemonslave: I took this picture with my phone as my camera doesn't want to co-operate, but I'll see what I can do.

@Beefcake: I wasn't always this proficient with a brush, and the verdigris on the armour was inspired by your Tunnel Dweller.  :wink:
