New Pulp Robot for German Army

I started collecting Monsterpocalypse when it first came out and was struck by the conversion potential of many of the miniatures. I finally got around to finishing one Monsterpocalypse Monster conversion project that has been sitting on my work table for a year now. The miniature I used is called Defender X and it is part of the G.U.A.R.D. faction in the game. It was a simple conversion, merely slicing him from his base and gluing him on a fender washer, then trimming down his head and gluing on a spare helmet from a 1/35 scale WWII German Infantry set.
I base coated it with flat black primer, and then gave him a spray of German dark Yellow, and then blobs of dark green and red brown. Then I added some detail painting and some spare decals, and finished up with a black ink wash, and some random highlighting.
The end result is shown below with some 28mm miniatures for scale.
