So I picked up this Boom Co. Defender from target and tried to "overnight" paint it for Rose City Comic Con... Paint took way longer to set up so I put a halt on the project so I'm showing what I have done so far on it.

Took and sanded off all the words and logos and such.

applied a flat black coat to it all.

On the *shield* I did dry brush silver and a copper paint. Then clear coated it. It would be done but the way I painted it left a few spots that need to be touched up.

With the shield off I feel it looks similar to Captain Rex's blasters from TCW.



With the shield on and open it has a flared look to it... Almost reminds me of the shield generators on Droidekas...



Here she is all dolled up.



Here's me hamming it up for the camera















It's not done but I'm stoked with how it's shaping up.

Did that come with some sort of a holster? That looks like a good project. I think I may need to work on a holdout for my wife's Mara Jade cosplay.

i took a look at that blaster today during my trip to walmart... it looks really cool but is a little too small for my huge hands, kinda bummed because it looks so sweet painted up...

Im contemplating getting a nerf Mega Magus... but for the time being ill be painting my nerf Hammershot

it didn't come with a holster but I may do a kydex holster for it. They are, small I'm thinking about doing some form of extension on the grip. like a magazine extension.
