    I already shared with the good folks on the Beast Wars Appreciation thread;

    I have more work to do (clean up and details) but here is a peak at my BA custom while it drys;

    This is my first ever custom. It's not the greatest but I am glad I finally did something like this. Due to the mold diffirences I had to get a bit creative with what parts were what colors but for the most part I like how it turned out.

    In the future I will probably stick to details painting only, I just am not real great with paint. It can only get better though right? :) 

    UPDATE 07/16/2010

    Finished for now - see last post for final pics :)

    She looks very good. BW colors really do work for this figure but BW Blackarachnia had bigger boobs :D

    So I completely removed the old paint from the paint pens and started over with real paint and brushes. Re-painted with a better color match and added a classy yellow Predacon logo on her neck. Some cameo's from Cybertronian Tarantulas as well.

    I will update the first post as well to reflect the updated effort. Feedback and suggestions for improvement appreciated. I am happy for my first time using paint brushes :) 

    EDIT: Forgot the gratuitous "butt shot" showing off the nice red spider mark. Tarantulas goes crazy for the Predtho Booty!

    That's a pretty good BW schemed version. To bad she couldn't get that kind of variant.

    Really cool! That mould is great in BA's original colors. Surprised I don't see very many of this custom (there was one other done a long time ago when the toy first came out)

    I prefer your first attempt better... I loved the variation between the yellow, gold, and copper like she had in the show. Your final version is good as well, but I feel like it’s less accurate :/
