    A rendition of Bludgeon as a veteran Warlord, with typical weathering treatment He comes with a custom Katana and scabbard that can be mounted to his waist.

    I love this figure and had hell of a good time working on him. C&C most welcome.

    I much prefer the more orange colors that are originally on the robot mode. I also would have recommended a more flat, military paint palette for the alt mode. Aside from those two things, everything else you've done looks really great. Those additional weapons are KILLER! :thumb

    It looks awesome. However, here's a little nitpicking about the sword: while the blade definitely looks like a Japanese katana, the hilt and to a lesser extent the scabbard, look too Chinese.

    TCracker, I used thin coats of green and red on silver yellow base and with some free will airbrushing :) 

    Thanks Superquad7! I just can't resist Red on this figure :) 


    Bludgeon prolly picked up the sword inthe Asian jungles during the WW2 :lol

    I think Sabrina's Bludgeon already proved, red can work for this character. Sure, the orange / green has worked for him in boxart, cartoon etc.

    but the red adds a gritty feeling the orange just can't touch. Awesome work. The shiny finish could pretty well be appropiate if you imagine him in a moist bamboo forest. Glad to see you didn't add over the top hull damage.

    Thannx :)  In any case I would have done it red since orange might blend in too much with the camou which already have a bit of yellowish brownish hue.

    Yeah!

    BUSHIDO!! HiaaK!! :wink:

    Sweet!
    I've just ordered a whole set of them two days ago for the Bludgeon I've yet to find.. With the same type of idea in mind! Glad to see it's gonna work out well!
    Great paint man!
