    Arrogant & pompus Sunstorm is a dangerous & unstable Seeker with a fiery temper.

    when Sunstorm gets mad he BURNS

    The flames were made using a hot glue gun & are attached with magnets.

    Maximum credit for the flames has to go to Tom Servo,who's amazing hot glue gun guide was a huge help.


    I was never really happy with Acid storms head so i've resculpted the mouth slightly

    Sunstorm was painted with Games Workshop Acrylics & the yellow was a custom mix of Snakebite Leather & Sunburnt Yellow.

    Been meaning to ask. How do you get the brushed metal yellow colour? It's really nice, neat and ooh so addictive to look at. All your other customs seem to have this really nice texture on 'em.
    And really love the way you match colours. Really really amazing!

    I love it spurt. Very clean paint apps and color choices.
    I am not a fan of the flames though. While they do look like they fit the animated style, they sorta look like cake frosting to me.

    Regardless, this team makes me think about one day looking at the TFA line.

    Another superb, clean paintjob! This is a great Animated Seeker series.

    I like the flames too, that's an inventive touch - but my one criticism would be that they appear too small and incidental, they don't really "belong" to the figure... imho, a couple of OTT flame sheets engulfing his wings and shoulders would have a greater visual impact. Especially on such an already-caricatured figure.

    But that's just my 2p; it's your work, and stands out from the crowd as usual :)

    Best seeker yet. That mustardish color looks great and your choices for white are spot on too. The flames are a little tame for him though, a few of them kinda look like orange boogers too. :p 

    You're an effing machine though son. Can't wait to see what's next.

    I feel really bad for saying this, but the acid drops on Acidstorm kinda make me think of birdpoop...

    But really, that's such a wicked paintjob that it hardly matters!

    Cheers guys :thumb 
    I'm not totaly happy with the flames either,the handy thing about attaching them with magnets is i can always make some more.
    A few people have comented on the shark faces on the missiles,this is actualy sculpted on animated starscreams missiles already all i did was paint it.
    Next up is Skywarp.

    God I hate you spurt, every inch of your amazing skilled talent I hate it all!!!! Great job by the way. Nyuk nyuk.

    I love the flames, but if you don't like those have you ever thought of suing the clear FX bits that come with some Ben 10 toys? The one that came with Wildmutt looks a bit like flames.

    The White & Black are a nice contrast with the Yellow.
    How many more left to go?

    Seriously. I've been refraining from posting in here all weekend because of all of the sheer awesomeness that is Spurt. I just can't take it. And I'm not even a huge Animated fan :lol
