    Late to the party on this one. Such a cool figure to paint. These paint apps were inspired by War Within Grimlock and Pretender Grimlock. The figure was basecoated in gloss black. Everything else was handpainted, using Testors Enamels. Some of my favorite paint apps I've done to date. Anyways, hope you guys like him.

    Forget whatever party you were late to. You just started up a new one! Great texture with the dry brushing. Love the sword and the "jewel" colors as well. Kick Ass, man!!

    thanks man. glad you like him, even though he's strictly a re-paint, he's one of my favorite customs I've done.

    lol thanks man, i threw that pic in just for you! i think your collection needs a devy to display with Extinction!

    thanks so much guys, grimlock was the only G1 dino I had as a kid (G2 actually), so this figure is a dream come true, and was awesome to paint.

    WOW I wish I could like you. This is a real masterpiece. It's always better to turn up late to a party, it's far more interesting the later it gets.
    Any tips on where to learn to paint aswell as you.
