    Been working on these three over the last two weeks, and now that I have the camera back I can present them properly- with bios!

    [​IMG]
    Flamestrike is the youngest of the three brothers and is most rash. Not letting his excitment get the better of him, he still takes time to aim his explosive napalm shells for a precision strike... most of the time.

    [​IMG]
    While a competant combatent, Stormcloud prefers the role of scout and spy. His colors serve as camoflage in the twisted weather from which he took his name.

    [​IMG]
    As the eldest, Starfall is the leader and the brains of the operation. He is also the most powerful, with his high altitude stellar matter cannons raining devastation upon his target.


    [​IMG]
    Mercanaries on the surface, the reputation of these three rogue Decepticons precedes them where ever they go. Their standard attack pattern consists of Stormcloud scouting the enemy from the cover of nightly clouds and painting the target. Starfall then screams downward from the upper atmosphere, opening fire as he bursts through the cloud cover. One pass wreaks enough devastation that Flamestrike's low-altitude firebombing runs are often a formality of choas. Their mercenary work is little more than a filler until the time comes for them to serve their true purpose.

    alt mod pics! :p 

    EDIT: I really like the grey/black one, nice and similar to black starscream, I dig! I wouldn't mind doing that purple one either, but with silver thighs and hands..

    RL, if you try to do a Starfall I'd suggest a slightly lighter blue. The shade I used is so close to black it gets lost pretty easily.

    Whoa those are awesome looking, even the names kickass.

    And Flamestrike does'nt remind me of Sunstorm at all, he reminds me of the burning Convoys which kickass! It's nice to see a burning seeker finally

    If you still have the packages, I can whip up some custom inserts for ya real fast

    I think they look really nice, especially with the level of detail and cleanness of the paint aps. Nice job my friend. :rock

    Glad you guys like 'em. :D 
    Thanks, that'd be awesome. :) 

    Decepticon, as it says in the last paragraph of the first post. I'll put faction stickers on at some point, hoping to clear coat them first.

    This- [​IMG] is the inspiration for Starfall's colorscheme. (And name, etc.) Think it goes?

    Very nice, I especially like Stormcloud, though they all have distinctive characters.

    Thanks guys. :)  I'm still thinking about putting the inner leg stripe on like the full size has, but that'd take some masking at least and I don't know how well I could do it on something this small.

    I've got 6 more blanks coming (4 sunstorms and 2 starscreams) and I've got ideas for at least 4, probably 5 of them. Just need some white paint for two. It's so much fun making these little guys! :)

    Why don't you color & name them what the three Starscream Looking Planes looked like they are from the 2-pt epi: Search for Alpha Trion?
