    Been working on this one very, very slowly. First one I've posted up on weeks and more then likely, it'll be weeks before I post up another :) 

    Anyway, this has been a work-in-progress for quite some time. He's been fully prepped for ALL modes of transformation and he's been inflicted with lots of damage effects and then painted for an aged worn and torn look.

    - He will have a huge sword, a set of rocket launchers for 'Armored Mode' and his BFG of course (pics coming soon)

    Zac that looks great man! Your work never seems to stop impressing me. Wow.

    How's the paint holding up when you apply the armor?

    Thanks guys! Hey Matt, it holds up pretty good actually. I sanded down the insides of the armor so that is slides on with little effort yet not loose enough to fall off. I suspect though that if the armor was put on and off more then 3 or 4 times, the paint might start to wear off at some of the edges but it's all black and a simple touch up would remedy it.

    This one is all enamel base-coated except for the colors which are acrylic. I used enamel paints for the base-coat because this used to be the DIA commander kit and a red optimus, plus the added durability of enamel.

    usually I'm not much into the war torn looks of most bots, but this one really works. I totally think it fits his personality. You hit this one out of the part, excellent job.

    I think you did a pretty good job here. The paint job is really high contrast but I think it works. If you had gone overboard with the damage I would have come down on you, but I think you resisted the urge most people get to really f**k up their toys, and it paid off. I really love the lighter gray accents on top of the black and the overall cleanliness of the paint application. I think his neck is a little long but it could have just been the angle you took the photo.

    Nice work!
