Back to the Custodes! These guys posed lots of painting challenges. There were some sculpting aspects as well. To make these weapons work, I had to add long, streamer-like purity seals.
Ultimately, they gave the weapons more shape, and also provided more 'interest', since I could tack on some freehand. In addition, there were now a few more surfaces on which I could reflect some of the glow from the end of the weapon.
