This is a Khurasan Vulk Missileman from the (still unreleased) Jasmine Throne Foreign Battalion range. He's huge (mounted on a 25mm base) and most certainly alien!
Full background details can be read here.
His big claws were slightly worrying from a modeling point of view so I tried to bend them both to approximately the same length and anchored one of them to his knee and the other to the base during assembly. I tried to do it in a way that looked natural. The claws also confused the heck out of my camera, so the shots are a little blurry.
Even though he's supposed to carry a missile weapon, it looked more like a beam cannon to me, so I painted the end of it as a lens.
My choice of white carapace armor is making these guys very slow, but I'm getting through them one at a time. Next is the female rifle trooper!
I am sorely in need of some dullcote.. I must remember to order some soon before my unvarnished minis outnumber the varnished.
