Love the paint job on the armor and helmet. Who knew the Powered Assault Commando Armor and Shock Trooper Helmet would look so good together? I like the idea to take gold items and then paint them so that the gold seems like the accent instead off the painted part. Really digging that modded hair piece. I have a few of those and will have to give it a try. How did you manage to make it not look so cut up? Paint, Paint Pen, Sculpy?

That's a pretty sweet custom. A well armed archaeologist, ready for 'field work'

Thanks, and yes, the Powered Assault items and Shock Trooper items complement each other really well.

For the hair, I ended up using my short nosed wire cutters to trim off the amount I didn't want. It cuts really easy with those so be careful. Since I didn't want a 'straight' hair cut, those worked perfect.
Then I used a wide tipped xacto and trimmed the outter edge tips to give the hair a curved look.
Then I used the same wide tippped xacto and lightly shaved around the cut edges. When done carefully it removes the rough edges and the 'off colored cut pieces', leaving behind a clean and properly colored piece.
After I get the edges smoothed to what I want, I wipe the piece down and then apply a coat of fingernail polish to the full hair piece - to give it all the same sheen.
The only scratch, as you see in the pic, is because I tried using my xacto first and when it slipped and marked the hair I changed to the cutters.

@SMarine: Thanks!
And yes, you never know what you will find lurking in those long lost hidden places. :o)
