    A little back story on myself, I guess I've been painting for a decade or so with miniature figures. Regretfully was in Warhammer Fantasy/40K while I was an early teenager but realized how much of a time and money sink it was. To this day I still wash, smooth, paint and decal Gundam kits as well. But nothing, certainly nothing can get you ready when you try to customize a Transformer. I've learnt quite alot of new techniques few months, just about the quality of different paints, thinning them out, how to nail out pins, how to sand something without turning it into a mess, and the list could go on and on...

    On to this particular figure, Animated Chromia from Animated Arcee. This was my first custom, and I finished it last summer. Despite the fact that it's my first, I really treasure it because it's seemingly my best custom out of the first half dozen I have done, likely because I actually took the time and didn't rush things. The reason you're only getting this gallery now... well was patiently waiting for the Reprolabels to come in. And not only that, but my good friend Counterpunch sort of indirectly pushed me in the right direction to take good photos, and holy crap, not much is required (two black t-shirts, two pieces of printing paper, two lamps and an empty 24 pack) to turn blurry photos into high quality steak and dinner.

    With Chromia you might notice..


    Moving on, here we have it, Chromia giggling her way onto TFW2005.com

    Chromia was never one of my fav characters, but you make me wish they would've made this figure. Very nicely done.
