    Bruticus: A team of decepticons in deep cover within the US military (Combaticons) in Kuwait are discovered by Prowl's Autobots. Caught by surprise, the Combaticons are easily overpowered and destroyed. Only their leader, Onslaught, survives the assualt while being at sea onboard a cargo ship.

    Onslaught makes his way to a Decepticon base in Syria, but the journey depletes his energy reserve and he powers down completely. With the help of human allies, Megatron fortifies Onslaught with earth military weaponry and equipment. Onslaught is kept immobile, in a state of near hybernation, and is effectively operated by humans.

    Megatron supplements Onslaught's power supply with whatever is available, including an obsolete nuclear generator, and small petroleum engines. Although inactive, Onslaught's mind continues to function in a dreamlike state. He is tortured by the memories of his fallen comrades and obsessed with revenge. Falling deeper into madness, his personality splits. When the Autobots attack, he awakens not as Onslaught, but as Bruticus.

    This is a continuation to my Robots at War storyline. Basically Prime is really dead, no Matrix (or any other magic), and an arms race between Autobots & Decepticons lead to immense war machines. I'd like to tell the story in short snippets, whenever I do another character.

    Obviously the cannons are from Cybertron Optimus, and I switched his treads/thumbs so they sit better in alt mode. Original G1 Bruticus head with a balljoint. And a piece of telecom molding that attached by magnet to his back. It rotates to cover his head in alt mode. He's pretty basic, but I needed to get him finished to move on. Anyway, let me know what you think.

    Too big for the lightbox....but the cannons rotate all sorts of ways.

    I really like the way you're telling the fanfic using your customs. The integration of the Cyb Prime weapons seems pretty flawless, too; it's as if they're supposed to be there.

    Great work, and thanks for sharing. I always enjoy your customs :thumb

    Really sweet. I like the colours used. The tan, metals and green worked extremely well...
