    A straight repaint of the Generations Darkmount figure. Didn't really care for the figure but he does look nicer repainted. Used blues, reds, steel, aluminum, brass, gold yellow, gun metal, and some copper highlights.

    Looking good, surprisingly he looks more like he jumped out of the marvel comics than the standard version. I may have to do this with the Darkmount I'm keeping as Straxus.

    Thanks! This was pretty simple. The hardest part was masking to paint the red triangles (which is not hard)

    Nice. The blue is exelent.


    Yeah, Generations is a perfect time for Straxus. Thunderwing, Darkmount, Thrust, Dirge, Scourge and Lugnut arn't enough. (Skullgrin doesn't count)
