    Hey everyone! This is my first time sculpting anything so I decided to do something easy. I wanted my primus to have more weapons so, I put some apoxie sculpt and those wire twist ties to good use. I also did a blackwash on primus. Please let me know what you think! Any comments would be appreciated! Thanks!

    Love the idea. My only comment is that I feel like in the cartoon he had just one chain to each moon, but don't recall. Still, a great way to dip your toes into customizing.

    Neat! Panel lines are very well done and the moon-flails are great, tho I think maybe they need spikes!

    But then I think everything needs spikes.

    Spikes always make everything better, if only I had thought about that before the sculpt hardened. :(

    Thanks! Yeah, I do a ton of repaints and mods that are here on the boards, but I have never done sculpting. Dormamu gave me some apoxie sculpt the other day to work with and I really like the sculpt. I will be delving more into this area of customizing as well. Just like to add to my toolbox of things I know.

    Now that was not expected. Excellent work! How well did the paint work with the sculpt?

    Can you share your experience with your wash? It came out well! :)

    I think technically those are called "meteor hammers". But neat.

    Looks pretty good. The wash does look good! If you scored the spots where you'd want the spikes you could pretty easily add them. Edit: oh I see you don't have any more stuff. Guess you'll have to get some. ;) 

    Man, do I need a Primus figure...

    The wash was pretty simple to do. I just added some black acrylic to some water until I found the right viscosity I wanted. It really turned out better that what I was hoping for! Also, the paint stuck very well to the sculpt. Also, if you don't have a Primus, you need to get one! HAHA!

    Ah, yes. Man I love that episode. Nice job on that moon. If you have a Supreme-class Starscream, he will never sleep well again.

    I see the cat, and he sees those pieces, and he want's em!!
    LOL!!
    Got 3 cats myself, and kitbash parts are like crack to them.
    Nice work on the panel lining. Been meaning to do something like that myself with vader/deathstar.

    Moon chucks are an interesting idea too.

    Yeah, if I don't work on my tf's in the laundry room where the cat's bed is, she will annoy the crap out of me for those little friskies treats. HA HA!
