    Here is a custom McFarlane toys Halo:Reach Spartan

    Themed like Transformers G1 Roadbuster

    [​IMG]

    I used a base coat of Krylon Fusion Ultra Flat Camo Black then used Testors Enamels followed by Citadel Acryics to achieve the look of the original paint on the Halo figure.

    I plan to do more Wrecker Team Spartan if this auction sells to my liking.
    An Autobot symbol was also added on his left collar.

    Now he just needs a Warthog painted up to roll around in, armed with every weapon he needs. I like it

    Thanks guys, I really wanted to do this as a "Proof of concept" piece. I'm adding a Wrecker symbol to his Backpack tonight (how'd I forget that?)

    also if the sale does well, the winner gets to choose which Wrecker Team Spartan I do next.

    I added a wrecker decal. It's removable if the winner chooses to do so.

    One thing I learned from my Megatron entry in the last S70 contest is that pristine decals on top of weathered armor does not look very good.

    I was thinking about tearing it up a bit , so it literally looked like an old bumper sticker.

    That's a cool concept. I would have never thought of that.
