    Hi guys.

    Been lurking on this board for a bit-
    Thought I'd post my first attempt at a leader class figure. Basically, my take on Nemesis Prime. Didn't want to do him in black- wanted to be a little different!

    Here he is so far. He's still a WIP- still sorting out different weapons (have a ridiculously over-sized sword in progress and also want to make a few magnet attachment points so I can swap different weapons onto him) and detailing etc. Also want to make him a *lot more battle damaged.




    Will add more as I progress.

    Looks cool so far... maybe just a little black wouldn't hurt, though? Perhaps on the face to bring out the eye detail...

    Looking good so far. I like that you went with grey instead of black. Gives him a kind of "dead transformer" look.

    He looks good and I love the guns. However I think he needs to be darker for Nemesis. Can't wait to see what you do with him.

    I'd agree that the colour needs to be broken up a bit. Whilst the grey does give him a sort of realistic look (and also dead like bad karma mentioned), I think a secondary colour like black would really bring it out.

    Updates!

    Have battle damaged Nemesis up a bit.

    ^_^ Took a lighter to him and set various parts of him alight.
    Kinda going with "taken massive damage to torso section".


    I'm wondering if I should highlight the damage with blue- "energon blood"?

    Will be carving large chunks out of him soon...

    He did literally go up in flames at one point and I had to extinguish him very quickly as his neck joint nearly melted clear off.

    The warped plastic really looks good up close (in person). More of him got singed than I had intended, though =(
