The Cylon Centurion is a fully armored, metallic automaton that functions as the basic foot-soldier of the Cylon ground forces.
Introduced sometime after the initial Cylon conflict, the modern Centurion appears to be a significant evolution of the Cylon War-era Centurion.

Modern Centurions serve a variety of functions within the Cylon hierarchy, acting as guards, soldiers, executioners and even gardeners. "Bullethead", "clanker" and "chrome job" are common Colonial nicknames for these advanced and deadly Cylon constructs . They are also referred to as "toasters" - the common Colonial nickname (or epithet) for the Cylon race as a whole (Miniseries, "Resistance").
Although Centurions are sentient by design, an implant annuls their higher cognitive functions and prevents them from exercising full self-awareness. It also appears that this implant precludes them from harming any of the humanoid Cylons, except by explicit order. According to Sharon Agathon, this was done to prevent a rebellion akin to the one that started the first Cylon War .
Following the Second Attack on the The Twelve Colonies, Centurions were used in a number of assaults on the surviving human Fleet. Centurion forces boarded both remaining Colonial Battlestars Galactica and Pegasus and landed ground forces on Kobol and the Algae planet. During the brief colonization of New Caprica, Cylon Centurions were used to keep order throughout the Cylon occupation . On Caprica, modern Centurions were part of a clean up effort in Colonial cities including Delphi where they participated in the reconstruction effort
Centurions are unable to distinguish one copy of humanoid Cylon from another . Whether Centurions are able to recognize members of the Final Five - like Raiders are able to - is unknown. It should be noted, however, that prior to the activation of said models, Centurions directly engaged at least two of these individuals in combat.
During the Cylon Civil War, rebel Cylon leader Natalie removed the telencephalic implant of the Centurions under her command. Once the device was removed, the Centurions gained the ability to reason for themselves and subsequently turned against the rival humanoid models
Self-aware Centurions operating aboard the Rebel Cylon basestar within the human fleet, cooperated with Colonial forces to rescue Hera from the Cylon Colony. Distinguished by red stripes painted across their armour, these Centurions operated as assault troops under the command of Lee Adama. During the conflict, "Red Stripes" battled other modern Centurions as well as older models living on the Colony since the first Cylon War. Following the destruction of the Colony and the discovery of "Earth", the Centurions were given command of the Rebel basestar and set free by Ellen Tigh and Admiral William Adama. Despite the risk that they might someday return and attack humanity, both Tigh and Adama noted that the Centurions had earned their freedom

Modern Cylon Centurions are at least mostly robotic beings in nature. Unlike their Cylon War-era predecessors, the current models have not been observed "bleeding" when injured). More agile than those predecessors, modern Centurions are capable of extremely fast bipedal locomotion .

Sleeker in appearance than their robotic ancestors, Centurions are humanoid in structure, with long limbs and heads partially encased in armor. Their hands have four long, multi-jointed claws that can be retracted into smooth-tipped fingers of human proportions to handle more delicate object.

It is unknown whether Centurions can "speak" to other Cylons - though they likely communicate with each other via a wireless network, making verbal speech unnecessary. They can, however, hear and respond to verbal commands from the humanoid Cylons

Some versions of the Centurion wield markedly improved armor. A platoon of Centurions that boarded Galactica were unaffected by standard weaponry; subdued only by armor-piercing explosive rounds. Other Centurions appeared to be constructed from an alloy that is much lighter than that used in earlier models. During combat aboard the Colony, loyalist Centurions of the newer type were cut down by Colonial fire more forcefully than the earlier 0005 models.

The Centurions that Helo encountered on Caprica reacted more slowly, behaved less intelligently, and were more easily destroyed by small-arms fire. However, if one takes into consideration the overall plan that the Cylons had for Helo and Sharon Agathon, it may be surmised that these variants were intended to inflict psychological, rather than physical harm. Conversely, Centurions seen on Kobol displayed an increased group intelligence, working together to construct an anti-aircraft battery from parts of their Heavy Raider.

The modern Centurion can effectively oppose a squad of Colonial soldiers by means of various combat systems. Long, talon-like fingers act as bladed weapons during close-combat, and fold back to reveal a three-barreled automatic projectile weapon which may be used in fire-fights.

In addition to these built-in weapons, Centurions are capable of carrying larger, more powerful weapons not integrated into their systems, such as mortars and missile launchers.

Thanks for looking in.
Pete.

Looks like a great kit Pete - and thanks for the biography.
Hi Peter, has some very nice details but there's a lot of very thin seam lines which will definitely show up once it's painted so this is going to be a slow build a think. Certainly something different for me.

Hi so on to his lower legs and feet as you can see I forgot to take pic's.

As you can see there are a lot of seam that need filling, there is a outer armour that goes over his legs
and feet which I'm painting the inside of now because I'll never get to it when it's on

He's a good size!

Does he stand on his own OK or does it take a bit of balancing and snap a quick picture before he falls?
