    Hi Folks!
    I've been working on a few customs over the past few months and have finally gotten around to taking photos of them. This is my first custom -TFA Cliffjumper.

    Nothing too radical here, just added a huge chin, redid the horns and adjusted the shape of the face a smidge.

    Paints are all citadel colour and I managed to preserve the light piping by using liquid mask. It's a PITA and I didn't bother doing it again.

    Anyhoo, enjoy the pics. I've got Trailbreaker, Ironhide, Gears and Wasp to follow soon.

    Thanks! I do a fair amount of RPG minis. I like TFA because it's not very detailed and I like the style.

    Nice paint job. My only critique is the head sculpting looks a little rough. But great work all around, even for a first custom.

    For a first, it's better than anything I could manage at my skill level. He looks exactly like the Activator version. Really great job.

    Yea, I'd suggest a light sanding of the right cheek.
