    Well, the great ebayer who won the Devastator I did, also likes the Dinobots. Fortunately, he likes my kindda work. He saw the Grilmlock I had on ebay, and got in touch with me. He wants a battle worn Grimlock. Well, I gave him a new face(I still hate the under bite, makes grimmy look weak.). These toys have so much potential to much more tough.

    I was thinking of Grimmy's War Within alt mode. A bad a$$ tank. A much more dark and worn torn machine. I added scares, of course. Then, if you sand with low grit paper in one direction, you can get a brushed steel or aluminum look. I did that. So, I mixed silver with transparent black to get a steel look. Then, again with my airbrush, I did dagger strokes with transparent black, then a little mix of transparent brown with a hint of transparent red, to make a rust oxcide. Did some more down strokes over the black to add some rust. I was thinking weathered, for sure. I will have more picks when complete. I have a special ...addition to finish.

    Well...I mean...It's OK......I guess.
    But battle damage doesn't come from all angles...and it's got no flow...and you missed one area and you over did it and it doesn't even look real...and you didn't make it get up and walk to the fridge to grab me a soda...???
    HOW DARE YOU !

    Just kidding bro...I love doin that to ya...:lol :lol :lol 

    Can't wait to see it, it's gonna be battle-icious...I can tell ! - :rock

    The new pics are even more BATTLE-ICOUS ! ! !
    I could(should) but sometimes it won't let me with the "you have specified an incorrect time" thingy and I can't simply paste a copied description with Photobucket Img links(all in one) so...I usually cringe at the thought.
    Yes...I am a punk - :lol

    Oh wow haha, I have been working on almost this exact same thing the last 2 days - sans airbrush. Took a knife and a soldering iron to ol Grimmy too. I'm using a similar base coat (flat black with some gold and a little metallic blue), and a bunch of dry-brushing. I've added some styrene to close up the gap on the bottom, and am working on giving him a G1ish gun too. We must be geniuses then, damnit.

    I'm loving these preview pics though, can't wait to see how yours comes out!
