    Just used some Elmer's paint pens silver and my fingers to really pick out that molded in brushed metal look the figure came with. I think it is an improvement.
    I also added a few small silver paint apps to the blade weapon, hope they are noticeable.

    I like this because it's not over saturated with silver. Nice job.
    Have you tried using brushes yet?

    No, simply because I have become quite good at using my fingers or paint pens. I have other small tools I use to get into small places. I just feel I have better control this way :)

    Thanks! I also have a video review of him in the feedback section, though t is before I painted him. I think you will enjoy him when you get him in hand :)

    Thanks man! I have another thread with pics of the changes i made to his gun, from moving the LED, to the purple paint, and to turning the leftover blades from the gimmick into a gladiatorial energon sword. :)

    My advice, try taking the head apart and just painting the face a darker colour, it does wonders :)
