    So I'm sick as a dog and decided try my luck! This is my first ever repaint. I've had the stuff to do this for a while but been scared to try it. Its a repaint of armada galvatron to a WWI(ish) megs. I started with no direction and ended up with something that resembles WWI megs. I need to get a smaller brush for the head but other than that it went well. I also want to make a better arm cannon/gun. All I had were pieces of another armada megatron. I can see this becoming addictive! I'm open to suggestions if anyone has any. Thanks!

    Your paint apps look pretty good for being brushed on! Maybe a G2 Megs head would bring out the character even more. Looks very cool so far! How bout some more pics?

    Dude looks awesome, I would agree with spoon, get a different megs head or you could do some sculpting practice and give it more of a boxy g1 style helmet

    Thats the next step. I have to learn how to take these guys apart w/o breaking or losing pieces. I wanna try sculpt my own head. I also wanna do something else for the cannon. Thanks for all the positive input!
