    Straight repaint with one small mod,i pluged the missile hole on the cannons with a screw cap from a kitchen fitting pack.

    I was really in two minds whether the ROTF head was better than the original so i decided to give him both.

    Ironhide was painted with Games Workshop Acrylics (Mainly Chaos Black,Dwarf Brone & Chainmail glazed with Blue ink)
    Decals were made by Primusx1.

    Absolutely amazing. I gotta get me better paints. I am using Testors...but the Testors I got in a pack at Fred Meyers.

    You must have a TINY brush to get some of those details.

    Simply, absolutely awesome...

    Was it originally so dark? The Ironhide figures i have found are not so dark as he is in the movie.

    Yours look just like in the movie. Awesome

    I knew that your painting style would flat out WIN on the movie molds.

    Great job Spurt! I vote that you do a Leader Prime next. :)

    I like the original head better. Looks sharper. The ROTF head looks like it took a nasty beating. That aside, I really do admire your paint skills. You are able to bring a unique look to all toys that you touch!

    Wow. When I saw the picture at the top I seriously thought it was a CGI image to compair to your repaint. Best Ironhide custom I've seen.

    That this could be called a "minor" mod is laughable - that level of detail is INSANE!!!

    Awesome work :thumb
