    This is a full repaint from another character with this mold. I added all the damage to create a battle look (my first).

    Damages Committed:

    - I cracked, gouged, and scratched his front right leg on the right corner.
    - I tore up his left forearm a bit.
    - I gouged his helmet and face.
    - I added bullet hole to his right shoulder pad, chest, right hip, and left leg.
    - I also added gouges and dents in various other places.
    - His back is still a WIP so it's not shown yet.
    - I also cracked and chipped his weapon as well.

    I still need to add a symbol.

    UPDATE: Alt. Mode

    nice battle damage! i feel that the best battle damage is by using a soldering iron and just poking the plastic and taking it out like a big bullet hole lol that way it leaves a nice damaged look and kinda a burned/ melted look also

    Thanks guys. I didn't think about the soldering iron, that's a good idea though I don't have one...yet. I basically used the tip of a tiny flat head and used as a hand drill and then used some mini pliers and pulled pieces off and bent pieces. I actually like this look.

    I Mirage has Geico! Make sure you read the fine print to make sure it covers "Rumble with Decepticons"

    Yeah, I'll have my little brother make some stencils for me, he's really good at it I just recently learned.

    I think he ran into a pack of rabid turbo-foxes on his off day.

    nice one, SonOfNemesis. the eye gouge made me wince. might I suggest a heated screwdriver or blade if you don't have a soldering iron?

    following your customs from here on in. cheers!

    I am impressed. I like the realism you achieved in the 3D look and 'feel' of the armor damage. I read above about the soldering iron suggestion, which is an excellent one; the heated tip of a blade sounds good too - lots of very creative and resourceful responses. Great job!

    Thanks! I didn't think of heating up a blade or screwdriver either, you guys and your ideas are awesome! I'll have to try that because I want to make the decepticon that gave all Mirage's wounds to him (sort of like a matching set).

    I'm actually working on a classics Starscream right now. Same style but no damage this time.

    Thanks Iron and RC too!

    Thanks, I'm actually trying to think if Mirage has any specific decepticon enemy. I can only think of Skywarp, I might actually damage a Skywarp up as well.
