I have been working on my Achillus for some time now and I wanted to share where I'm at. Gold on the armor is 90% done, red shoulderpad and blue energy blade are finished. I still need to finish the hilt of the spear and the magnetized arm weapons.

I am not sure I like the hilt of the spear also being gold. I am pondering to do it in black to create more variety in colors and tie it in with how I painted the guardian spears on my custodian guard. What do you think? C&C welcome.

Also I'm pretty freakin proud of the pose.

The spear blade is absolutely fantastic, love it I painted the staff in dark grey on both of mine to match the Guardians, it does help break up the gold a fair bit.

I think it looks great as is, IMHO, though some black or dark grey to break up the fantastically painted gold would work well.
