    I know that it is too dark and it doesn't look too good BUT, It is a sucess because the dye took.
    Step one done now i need to get some better colours.
    Plus i'd love tips and tricks :D

    It actually looks pretty good from here! Good job. Maybe a little paint will brighten him up if you think he needs it. I'd try "dry-brushing" some silver onto him to simulate metal scrapes and surface wear.

    Keep it up!

    so you're gonna just dye them all, THEN go back and paint them all? and how do you plan on dying only dirge's wings without dyin the rest o' him????? I've asked about that before and was told that was nearly impossible to do... but good luck! who's the green and red seekers gonna be?? Oh, and do you think you can get your sunstorm to get some more orangeish?

    well sunstorm really is orange, despite what universe has done to the poor bugger, and now thanks to him, the upcoming minicon and possible exclusive loc is gonna be the same :(  but he's orange damnit, just like the G1 Cartoon character that it was based off of!!

    Andy

    PS SW did you have any luck finding more screamers for your dying efforts yesterday??
