    Hey guys, this is one of my more minor mods, but I think you guys will enjoy it!

    Black Convoy/Scourge/Nemesis Prime is one of my favorite characters, and (despite the hoopla of this being an exclusive ['nuff said]) I was really excited to see this bot released in my favorite line. He still remains one of my favorite toys :) 

    Anyways, I thought he was a little light in the artillery department so I decided to fix that. Also, I always liked the red sword ("Sword of Fury!") from RiD, so I wanted to give my Alt Nemmy one too!

    I hope you enjoy my quasi-comic strip :)

    I'd like to dedicate this custom to my buddy, Cataclizm1. Thanks for hooking me up with this guy and for being a good friend :thumb 

    I hope you guys enjoy my work! :)

    what did you use for the guns? They look nice. Love the detail on the one with the teal accents. Did you hink of doing that to the other gun as well? It looks like it has a few spots that would accept the teal without screwing up the design.

    Heh, I knew I forgot something!

    For the accented gun, I used a gun from one of those $10 KO Gundams that BigLots! has each Christmas. I painted it a gloss black and teal. I modified the handle just a bit to fit Nemesis Prime's hand.

    The sword comes from a KO Gundam type figure that Dollar General had. They came in a few different colors and had a T-rex ornament design on the left shoulder. I painted it a metallic red I mixed as well as silver from my metallic marker and the same teal that the gun sports.

    The other gun comes from another Dollar General toy. It was some kind of cheap action figure that cost $1. Each figure comes with a sword, a smaller laser and a huge blaster. I just painted it a flat black after I removed the paint that came on it. After I painted it flat black, I just sorta liked how it looked so I didn't add any teal to it.

    Hehe, I forgot to note that this project was a side project to others while I was waiting for them to dry and such :lol  Diversions can always be fun though :)

    Love the weapons upgrade. Liked how you painted some teal in there to match the bot. And I need to learn how to take such nice pics like that.

    Nice artillery upgrade, SQ7.
    That's now (even more so) one badass bot.

    He does look better with bigger guns. I really like how he stores the sword too. I want to see a vehicle mode picture with his truck bed overflowing with weapons!

    I've never much cared for swords on Transformers, but those rifles are awesome, especially the one with teal accents (I've been looking for weapons like that more my own Alts). Kudos! My Alt Nemesis Prime is looking at me accusingly now...

    Thanks for the props, guys; I really appreciate it :thumb 

    Tech Spec, go check your e-mail . . . I just sent you a BT-17 to your e-mail account :lol 

    I was hoping that my photos really pulled out the "badness" of this guy and his weapons. It seems like it worked :) 

    Thanks for interacting with my work guys! I'm always glad to share :) 

    Thanks for the props buddy! Oddly enough, the teal that Testors makes is so very close to the teal used on Nemmy. It made my work a little easier :) 

    In terms of photos, the better my resolution of my camera is the better the photos. I HIGHLY recommend anyone shooting photos to get a tripod. Also, I use at least 4 lights at all times. I always edit photos in Photoshop as well. :) 

    Thanks for the props man :thumb  I had stored the weapons ever since I finished them (actually early summer) on his back. The sword I finished right after Christmas as I brought the sword home from my parents' house (where the bulk of my collection is). I was glad that it fit nicely in the crack created by the hinge of the back glass/roof :) 

    As for the vehicle mode, I always just think that the weapons phase in and out during transformation. I suppose all of these things goes to the same place Prime's trailer always did in the cartoon :lol 

    Hey dude, I hope you can find some things as well. Thanks for the props, and best wishes on your hunt to arm your Alts! Thanks for the props and I appreciate your posts :) 

    Thanks for the kind words buddy :) 

    Mwhahaha! It sounds like your Nemesis needs you to give him some accessories :D 

    What're friends for? :popcorn 

    Deviant? I already posted a thread about him ::duel 

    StarFire, I have to be completely honest with ya, I feel the same way (especially with the Alts). However, I have given my Alt Grimlock some extra swords (perhaps I'll post photos of him down the road) when he came out as well. I reeeeeaaaaalllllyy debated about this sword because I didn't want it to feel cheap or silly even. I thought to myself, "well, if this turns out crummy, it won't be a total loss." It turns out that I was pretty happy with the results :) 

    I'm always looking for things like this to add on to my Alts/BTs. Sometimes the most unlikely places (Dollar General anyone? Sheesh!) yield the best results :) 

    Thanks for the kind words man; I appreciate you taking the time to post :) 

    The quad be not damned! Whoohahahah! Now you must go and buy another Nemesis Prime so he can be armed! He must pwn your Alt collection! :D 

    I'm glad that you guys like this custom add-on :)  I hope that some of you guys will be able to create some things for your Alts as well :)
