Armed with a G-C Hybrid-pattern assault rifle and the latest in full-bionic bodies, this rugged mercenary is prepared to take on even the most challenging assignments… for a price.
Aquoid is a head sculpted by multi-talented extraordinaire The God Beast from his successful Brain Wave of custom Glyos heads and accessories. This particular head was cast in metal by Phil Reed as a test-piece for the metal Glyos parts that were released alongside the Renegade wave. Phil gave me the head with the requirement that I do something cool with it.
I hung onto the Aquoid head for a while brainstorming what to do with it. In a fit of inspiration I imagined how cool it would be if the fishy looking head really was the Aquoid… as in all of him. Like a fish. Then I put together what would be a bionic ‘body’ for him. The upper half is liquid-filled to keep him hydrated, with a waste-processing and powerplant on the back. The lower half is all mechanical.
I used clear parts for the upper half and sprayed them with MK C-thrus and glossed. The lower half and armor were all sprayed with custom-mixed MK colors, glossed for protection, decaled, weathered, and given a matte finish. The head is sprayed with C-thrus and pearls over the bare metal and glossed for a wet, fishy look.
The build has a ton of useful articulation, and I am really happy with how it came out.
