    Been planning this for ages now, finally got round to doing it over the last few days. Came out far better than I expected and I'm really proud of it :)  paints were from Games Workshop (except for the darker grey which was from a local model shop).

    Hope you all like!

    Whoa, looks awesome. I might have to try that. I wonder if you can't dye the orange parts into a darker red.

    Well you can die them black, so I'm sure a darker red would work.

    As for the paint job overall, excellent! Top notch painting and a nice custom!

    Good job dude :D 

    Only things I'd suggest - paint his "six pack" :)  and maybe repaint some of the factory grey bits to match? Other than that I reckon that's a sterling job, and you can have a cookie! :D

    Thanks everyone :) 

    The grey is "boltgun metal", and the blue is "regal blue"

    The "six pack" is painted silver, it just doesnt show up in the pictures very well. I agree with the other grey bits though, I'll have to see what can be done :)  even if I don't I wanna get rid of the Galv-25 paint app but I have no idea how to go about it :( 

    Woo! Cookie :D

    Wow, those colors look MUCH better than the actual toy. It doesn't clash with the alt mode so drastically.
