    After posting the other day when I received my latest Shapeways Gunslinger test prints, I've now got them painted up and ready to play. :) 

    Both of these figures were painted entirely with Inscribe acrylics.

    Truncheon's upper body was basecoated with Raven (black), lightly overbrushed with Passion Purple, while his lower body (legs and crotch-swivelly-bit) are done in True Silver. I used Bonfire Orange for his eyes, and Hollyberry (red) for his face and picking out the odd detail. I also picked out the panel lines on the front of his shoulders in silver.

    Backlash is mostly painted in Forest Green, with Ash (grey) for the legs. Golden Yellow was used for detail-picking, while his face was painted in Pure Silver, with Blue Mist for his visor.


    The boys hang with Universe Nightstick for a little while...

    ...but then turn their backs on him (and us!)...

    [​IMG]

    ...and decide to entertain themselves with a little sparring.

    Cyclonus hooks up with Truncheon and Nightstick...

    ...and initially opts to dual-wield...

    ...but ultimately decides that it's probably overkill.

    Meanwhile, Backlash makes up for Kup's current absence by helping Bluestreak out...

    ...then shows off his clipping skillz, just for the lulz.

    If you'd like to get hold of a Truncheon or Backlash (or both) of your very own, the kits are both available to buy now from my Shapeways store.

    Enjoy! :D

    Thanks. And yeah, Truncheon's patterned after Nightstick (hence the name and choice of partner), and Backlash is an homage to Recoil (which is why I mentioned waiting for Kup :p ).

    No, they're not available, even through the direct links. If I try them it leads to an error page saying "Sorry, you don't have permission to perform this action".

    Very nice, these would look 100x better if you added a layer of Pledge *with Future!*
    (That's 200% awesome.) :)

    Now you've got me even more intrigued, as i do think Kup works well as a target master!

    indeed! lookin' sharp in living color!

    I must say however, I'm more impressed with your original tf designs...
    don't get me wrong, you've done a wonderful job creating original characters but I like creative transformations. If the creators of "Megazoom" (or what ever the official name ended up being) had seen your Vantage, they may have taken a different path! You did a much better job hiding the bot in sniper mode ;)
