    I may not be the first person to have done this, nor will I be the last, but this is such an obvious custom it needed to be done :) 

    Using a cybertron deluxe Unicron kindly donated by board member Locustreign (cheers again!) all I really did was paint the helmet, arms, chest piece and minor details using Citadel Dark Flesh paint. For the silver detailing I used a silver paint pen.

    For the face I decided to try something a little different. Instead of giving it a base coat and then painting over it in white I gave it a very light coat of Citadel Skull White. It brought out all the details and gave it a pretty menacing "Endoskeleton" look which I really like.

    I was thinking about that, but I wasnt really sure where to put it.
    Any suggestions?

    kinda suprised you didnt paint the orange sections shining gold or something like that. leaving the color the normal orange just makes him seem like the normal cybertron Unicron release but with slight different colors in places, kinda like a Takara version in an odd way which is a nice idea

    I'm with Alex actually - I think the colour for Unicron is the perfect colour for Bludgeon. I left it the same on mine too. I see what you mean but I think it fits better, definitely more so than a gold.

    Hmm, Maybe the armour plating on the legs would look good in the green...but it's not enough to make the deco balanced

    That looks good, and easy to do too, might give it a go.

    I got into a heated-ish discussion about Cybertron Unicron being a homage to Bludgeon:
    Talk:Bludgeon (G1) - Transformers Wiki

    Needless to say, I lost!

    saw that, but i'm siding with you in that it looks like a bludgeon homage more than anything.

    Yeah it's really easy, probably the easiest customising Ive done!

    As for the discussion, I agree...I definatly see him as a Bludgeon homage.

    Great job with your Bludgeon T_D. I still need to photograph mine. I see you went for a more traditional G1 color scheme. I based mine off Stormbringer, so he has less burgundy, more forest green and touch of purple. I think what makes both great is how different they are, and you'll see that soon.

    I know the Bludgeon G1 inner robot is mostly green, but personally I have always thought of Bludgeon as being mostly the color of his shell. So I think the color here is fine. :)
