    Slag is a major repaint, all the purple is now flat steel. Dino face is Chrome silver, and metallic gold. Tail is gold leaf. Gloss red on the body, head. Metallic silver for the face. Clear red over gold leaf for the horns. Phew. Credit Neekotron for the headswap idea.

    Swoop just had his yellow parts painted in gold leaf. So he doesn't stand out from the other two. Plan is that all 5 dinos will have similar colors, but not the exact same shades.

    Also, Grimlock. Who is still in progress, should be finished in a week. Wings, head, gun, sword. Some areas need to be painted they are obscured from view.

    I was thinking about removing the jaw horns on mine but wasn't sure how it would look. It's not bad that way but I'm not sure yet if I prefer it.

    Thanks guys! Thinking of doing the biceps and hands in gloss black. Good idea? Since I don't have anything else I see that I would like to paint in black.
