    Nothing big, just repainted the arms and legs because this "baby-blue" sucked.
    I think I´m gonna re-do his feet... o.Ô
    Update:
    I´ve also painted his chest silver with some brass details.
    I think now he´s done :)

    Wow! Thanks so much! :) 

    Okay, here´s a quick guide on how I paint the robot parts:
    First prime them with a flat color, it should be black or a dark grey.
    If you want a "oil-look" you can use a shiny black as prime color.

    After the primer is dried, take some metallic colors.
    I always start to drybrush with "Iron" , followed by "Aluminum" (it´s a bit brighter than "Iron" ).

    After the drybrushed colors are dry, you can add some details like some brass wires (or you can paint the wires red and blue). Also you can add some color to the flat pieces that look like parts of the altmode. (You can see some shiny black locations on the legs of Ironhide. )

    That´s all! :)
