I started doing some work on my Talos. So far he's coming along pretty well, still need to work on the eyes and base for the figure but most everything else is done. I went heavy with the vertigre for a more aged look and think it came out pretty good. https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-jLgzaMS3GNY/...
