The KO Bruticus set from Walgreens was just begging for a new paint job, so here's my first TF repaint(s): Group: Onslaught altmode: and finally: I'm pretty happy with 'em, though some still need touch-ups. I have a bad tremor in my left hand that makes painting straight lines and small details a challenge. I tried the blue tape method, but it ripped half the black paint off. Vortex: just painted a couple coats of that blue grey then gave him a really subtle panel line/wash with blue. Brawl: Dark Green but too glossy and not at all military-like so I dirtied him up with with some dark rusty red drybrushing. Swindle: basecoated in black, then drybrushed green, followed with a heavy drybrushing of a custom green. Lil' bit of silver on his bot parts. Blast-Off: what a nightmare! I can't tell you how many coats of white it took to make him look decent. The bottom of the wings and the chest are glossy black with a silver drybrush. There's a barely noticeable dark grey added to the nosecone. Onslaught: I had a hard time picking a color scheme until I remembered his Energon counterpart Barricade. I thought, "hmm, Barricade...movie Barricade...cop...SWAT/riot police! So forgive me ProwlDelta, but another bad cop was born. Completely basecoated in glossy black which just wouldn't stick to that cheap orange plastic on the chest. Painting the white over messy black was no picnic either. I drybrushed silver on his head, hands, back, and shield/ramp. The chest shield was molded in that same vomit yellow as all the Bruticus parts so that had to go. He got a custom baton out of some armada missile I found at a garage sale. Probably not too noticeable in my crappy pics, but it's got bright blue painted details to simulate some kind of energy going through it. Overall, I had lots of fun and learned a lot in the process. I want to get some Con insignia from reprolabels to ice the cake. Thanks for reading!
