    A friend of mine came by the other day and gave me an early christmas gift: Transformers :The Movie chess set. Knowing that i like to do some transformers repaints, he gave it to me while mentioning that those figures were mostly unpainted...bronze and silver only.

    So, here i am, with another WIP that probably won't be finished by the end of this year, but i can still show you some pics and ask for suggestions/critics.

    Here's what it looked like at first: http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/511RHPtQuLL.jpg

    Barricade and pawns: [​IMG]

    Bumblebee (I think i'll paint the other one red ro make him looks like Cliffjumper)
    [​IMG]

    King Optimus Prime and his queen, Ironhide (WTF?)
    [​IMG]

    Ratchet (couldn't find a better matching green..oh well)(think i'll paint the other Ratchet like G1 ratcher).
    [​IMG]

    Jazz( who could also get the G1 repaint)
    [​IMG]

    Back shot of the group: [​IMG]

    Unpainted(yet) pieces: [​IMG]

    And something i learn about Ironhide(never knew he had that autobot sign on his back): [​IMG]


    C&C is welcome.

    looks good so far, but why not just custom mix your own green for ratchet? That green is not good.

    that's what i tried...but like you see, i just failed...i think i'll have to try again and paint over it(acrylic seems to stick really well on this material).

    Oh that was your custom mix? Thought it was out of the bottle cause you said you couldn't find a better one.

    You could try looking up the colors number in photoshop and then see if there is some kind of formula or something. Might help.

    Quick idea, what if you paint the other bumblebee red for cliffjumper? Since you are doing a g1 jazz and ratchet, it would be cool to have a repainted bb as well.

    Edit:

    Apprently I can't read....I'll go now.

    Paint the other Jazz as Richochet/Stepper! Also do up Ratchet as G1 Ratchet, and Ironhide as G1 Ironhide, just to break up and differentiate the characters!

    There is only one Ironhide in the set, sadly. I believe he's the queen. Too bad Arcee wasn't in th movie.
