    Oh my god! It was so obvious I never thought of him as Warpath. Awesome. Very nice.

    That's what's amazing. Chest canon = Warpath but I didn't even see it.

    Nice. Now i can scratch another one off my possible contest entries...

    Seriously, that is really awesome. First time? Would've never guessed. Just one thing, though, the head doesn't scream Warpath to me, but when you start, i guess you don't have a big pile of heads...

    First of all, welcome, Radicon Valmont.devi! :thumb 

    From what I can tell, your work looks really good! I think some better photos would do your work more justice though. From a conceptual standpoint, this is where the strength definitely lies. I think it's a stroke of genius. Great job and I hope we see more from you :thumb

    If this is your first paint job, I think you've made alot of people (myself included) very jealous! Do you have a background in painting, or just natural talent?

    Truth betold i used i bought one box of games workshop space marines when i was seventeen (now 25) and i could not paint them to save my life.luckily transformers are on much bigger scale so there a lot easier to paint.


    Thanks for the compliments Peeps

    Great work!
    For a more 'Warpathy' head, might I suggest replacing with one of these?
    They're all a bit larger than Wreckage's, but there should be room for it.

    Longarm
    Stockade
    Dropkick/Salvage

    They all have the mouthguard that would suit Warpath, and with some trimming they can be made to look suitably different from the originals. :thumbs2:

    Awesome job. I would have never thought of this. but upon seeing this i have some minor modding ideas to take it a step further if your interested. the head from movie longarm screams warpath to me. also, i think the barrel of the gun sticking out of his chest could be shaved away and modded with just the barrel part of the movie jazz gun so that it could collapse (telescope in) for transforming and extend out in both bot and alt mode to give a more warpath feel.

    Really great idea to turn Wreckage into that. He so needs a larger mounted cannon. Then again, I am a proponent of BFGs.
