    I was commissioned to do quite a number of Mechtech weapons. I did them in ranges from simplistic washes to full-on repaints. The client wanted them compatable with Classics, with a few for Junkions.

    This was a really fun job!

    Thanks for the comments, guys!

    I had a great time painting these. A few gave me issues, but in the end it was worth it.
    I think my personal favorites are the one Space Case is holding and the white with blue stripes voyager Optimus one. I'm not a fan of the Skyhammer gun-blade in general, but it's fun to paint.

    I can't figure out what those first two came from, but they are my favorites! I love that electrical "burst" in them. They all look awesome!

    The voyager prime repaint... it was called fireburst optimus...or something like that XD


    Also those ratchet weapon repaints are nifty keen. Would work great with a junkion!

    Thanks for all the comments!

    The brown/orange ones are designed specifically for Junkions. There's Ratchet's saw gun, BB's engine, Roadbusters chainblade, Laserbeak's miniguns and Starscream's blades. Shockwave's sword can pull double duty since I tried giving it an ancient gold feel to some of the plates using layered metallics and washes.

    These look so much freakin better painted up! I can't believe how much of an improvement it makes to the originals :D

    Honestly, the guns have some nice detail sculpted in, but it's just lost in the sea of bland colors that they're molded in. I hated Sentinel's weapon until I painted these, and now it's one of my favorites.

    I actually like Sentinel's mechtech to begin with. Not enough to buy the toy mind you, but it's a nice gun.

    Damn, I have half a mind to try this out with my red Ironhide's gun, make it look a bit more badass. And maybe give Cyberfire Bumblebee some evil energy paint apps on his gun.
