Tim "Hivemind" Huckelbery, public relations and community manager for Games Workshop America, was kind enough to arrange for us to get our hands on one of the new MkIVb Predators in advance of their release in the U.S. (which will be later this month).

I thought it would be a good idea to use this as an opportunity for a Painting Project, since sometimes you see these boxed sets sitting on the shelves and wonder what they really look like put-together, or maybe you buy them and then don't know what to do with the kits.

So I put the word out that we had a Predator available, and the first person to get back to me was Leland R. Erickson over at Miniatures Dressed to Kill:

"WHERE THE HELL DO I SIGN UP FOR THE WORKBENCH PROGRAM?!! LOL!! ;) AFVs - whether historical or science fiction - are a specialty of mine! I would consider it an honor to work up the new Predator."

Funny thing is, Leland already has some Predators - the older models - on his workbench. "I am currently doing a 'retread' job on a trio of second generation Predator kits for one of my clients. They are all being customized and painted for urban warfare, including such features as 'ACAV' style cupola armor and stowage."
