    I finished this guy a while ago and just didn't feel like posting it. It is a very Nemesis Prime-esque repaint, but I do not consider him Nemesis Prime. I did the shield mod on this guy as well. The paint scheme is very similar to my WFC Bumblebee repaint. I rather enjoy the black w/ red accent scheme and I plan to do it with WFC Megatron and Soundwave when I get my hands on them. Funny thing is, black/red repaints are fairly common for these characters i.e. Nemesis Prime, Stealth mode Bumblebee, Shadow Megatron, and Soundblaster. I want to make the 4 of them a factionless group of vigilantes. Maybe give them a team name that revolves around Stealth or Ninja.

    I am aware that my paint skills are still very amateur, and some of the paint apps are terrible. Until I have money/skill for a better method, this is how my repaints will be. Criticism is welcome.

    On a side note, I have a Green HA Bumblebee WIP. I'll probably name him Wasp, opposed to Waspinator as that was his former name in Animated.

    Looks pretty decent man, paint apps are nice. You really don't need advanced tools or anything. I went out and bought quite a nice and EXPENSIVE airbrush with a compressor and other gadgets and I really don't use it as much as I thought I would. Most of my painting is done by hand brushes and a steady hand.

    PM me if you ever need help. Otherwise, keep at it this one looks good!

    Alright, then scratch the equipment part and just leave skill. I have yet to try brushes.

    The black is cool. Maybe call him Shadow Prime. As for the reds, maybe do red washes in the lines, that way it looks cleaner.

    Green BB? I like the name Wasp better then Waspinator. Wasp sounds evil while Waspinator sounds like a stupid Terminator rip off.

    Yeah, I've been meaning to learn how to wash. I saw this one thread of a Legends Devastator simply washed in black and I thought it looked really cool. I've been wanting to try that myself now that I have both Legends Devastators.

    Very cool take in Prime, but the Red paint is a Bit Floppy, but this is nothing which cannot Be corrected

    Yeah, I've been trying to figure out a way to make it better, but the paint I am using causes the paint under it to come off/blend.

    Thanks.
