    Simple Repaint of Overlord's Headmaster's face, paint was a mix of GW Ceramite White and Eshin Grey, the blue trim around the face was painted with GW Caledor Sky which is a damn near perfect match to Overlord's blue. Eyes were also repainted with GW Evil Sunz Scarlet

    All the screws/pins on show have also been painted to hide them. And a very slight wash has been done over certain parts of the body, mostly evident on his torso.

    And here is a close up of the face out of the helmet.

    Didn't take any photo's of Alt modes as they're not really any different. Thanks for looking and feedback welcome.

    that looks nice!!! im totally doing this when i get mine, among other things.

    i have a question relating to the figure though. The chest panels. are they white plastic with blue paint, or blue plastic with white paint? Im hoping for blue so i can remove the paint and go for a more IDW overlord. i would rather remove paint then add paint if necessary.

    I think that it's really thick paint maybe, though I could be wrong. If it is paint it could be black underneath as the base colour instead of the blue :/ plus it's pinned in so could potentially be tricky to remove them.

    I am the pin master, they do not hinder me!!! unless they are capped, then i can't do shit...
    damn though, didn't even think of black as one of the potential colors... or grey for that matter. if it is painted completely over, it could be any of his plastic pallet.

    Thanks anyway though, I appreciate it.

    It's crazy how just slightly repainting the head made it look totally different. Like before the face felt to small, but now its perfect. :D

    Haha they're not capped off if that's any consolation. I was basing my guess that they're painted on the fact that there is a very tiny minor scratch on one of my Overlord's chest panels and it kind of looks black underneath? but it's too small to tell and I don't wanna scratch it any more to find out.

    And thanks everyone for the comments :)
