Dead Snake tribal raider WIP 2

Howdy! I got around to adding the spikes and such on my Dead Snake raider. The shoulder spikes are styrene rod or brass rod, cut and filed to shape. Thin strips of styrene are cut and distressed and added on as armor plates on the front and back. This guy is pretty much ready for painting!

The round bits on his forearm plate are microbeads I picked up from Michaels ages ago. I'll paint them up as rusted metal bolt heads. They work great as rivets on Space Marine models, but look rather large on this guy. Ah well, I'll keep an eye out for some smaller scale rivet and bolt heads.

I am really liking the big shoulder spikes. They filed easily, and they fit nicely into pre-drilled holes going down into the figure for stability. I don't want to lose them mid game.

Thanks for reading!

Great start to the raider. Looks awesome especially all the spikes and armour.
