But the Alien Crusher was actually pretty fun to build and paint. Here he is:
I thought this was a very bold choice from Prodos when it was first released. The Crusher appears only in Aliens: Colonial Marines - the critically-panned console game from 2014. Why chose an alien type from a game which was so poorly received? Still, the Crusher is nice an chunky, with a toy-like aspect thanks to its size.
I painted this guy in the same colours as in the video game. With so much surface detail, drybrushing it is a breeze. I picked out the finer highlights with standard brushwork, and then painted the teeth in grey going up to white.
Finally, the whole model was coated with a layer of gloss varnish. I'm painting select aliens with a gloss finish, and I thought that this guy took it quite well.
