This is my first completed attempt at building an elite. I hadn't given him good weapons yet, and so he wields a transparent blue "plasma grenade", or, as Donut would say, "SPIDER!!". He also has a slapped together energy sword, whcih is rather heavy for his wrist joint, and keeps messing up his pose. By the way, although the hands are "exo force" style, using mini figure arms is a better option if you have the parts and a craving for aesthetic excellence. If you do, you will be rewarded with curling, realistic fingers.
The first few photos are of the elite posing. The third is him and his other covenant pals (next project = brute?), and the third is a close up of the plasma pistol I made. Feel free to use the design, but please give credit where due.
The first picture is the elite with his new weapons. Needler dual wield!!!
Hope the guy is TOTALLY AWESOME!
PS finally a good use for yellow and "ketongorange"
