    So I FINALLY finished this commission. All in all, I used the Hulkbuster fig, 5) 3-3/4" War Machine Movie series figs, 2) 3-3/4" Comic Series figs, Sigma 6 Destro and Duke, GI Joe Steel Marauder, ROTF Sideswipe, and a 6" Mark VI head. Tony Stark head was removed and replaced with 6" Iron Man head that I added some styrene to for a more War Machine-ish look. Shoulder pads were moved to knees, and forearm guards were removed. Five gatling guns and conveyors on the right forearm. Two gatlings on left bicep. Three guns on each hip. Destro's gun (with added firepower) attaches to left forearm with magnets. Duke's railgun on right shoulder (with cell phone car charger cord attached to back). Steel Marauder's missile launcher on left shoulder. Steel Marauder's shoulders and a few other parts were cannibalized for his backpack. The steel marauder feet and hacked up legs, ROTF Sideswipe's shocks, and styrene were used for the feet. I think that about covers the mods.

    Primed with flat black. Drybrushed with a few shades of grey, steel, and silver chrome enamels. Highlights are red, orange, yellow, white, blue, and copper.

    I'm beyond happy with how he turned out, but believe you me, I can't wait to ship him away forever.

    As always, thanks for looking!

    This is the sweetest thing I've seen all week. I like how subtle the drybrushing is. Nice and careful, I dig it.

    If I'm in your shoes I'll keep him. I know it's a commission. ;)

    It's big, it's bad, and it has some really big guns. I love it.

    A side note: what did you use to make the guns, sorry if you already answer this, but I got to make sure I know. They cool

    The gun on his right shoulder is from a GI Joe Sigma 6 Duke. The one on his left is from the GI Joe Steel Marauder Mech. The gun on his left forearm started as a Sigma 6 Destro gun, with some left over smaller War Machine gatling guns, and I think one of those missile launchers that came with a 3 3/4" Mark II.

    I appreciate the comments, guys. I sent him off Monday, and trust me, I wasn't too sad to see him go. Taking a little break from customizing till after the holidays, for my own sanity.
