Hey guys, It's been a while since I worked on a custom. My paint booth has been packed for a long while during my house build. Priorities, right? Anyways, I decided to do something a little different and do a WIP thread to catalog the repaint. So far, I've got the trailer/waist completed, and Onslaught is almost done. I'm doing my best to provide a G1 cartoon look with minimal changes to the Alt color scheme, with the exception of the trailer for obvious reasons. Once I complete it, I'll post a full gallery with proper pics Edit 4 ** Vortex! This guy was pretty fun. Drab grey paint, but I think he didn't turn out too bad. Tried to give him a bit of high/low-lighting to break it up. Blast Off is on my bench now! I'm super excited about finishing up Bruticus. He's trimming up rather well, I think. Edit 3 ** Swindle! Enter challenge 3... I wanted to go for a realistic, cartoon look? As you can see, I tried to keep the purple hood, but the rest a muted desert tan paint job. He also has a faction symbol on the hood that is covered up by his head in bot mode, but we missed it in the photos. I modified this guy a bit, too, but you'll have to wait to see how in my Bruticus reveal Edit 2 ** Brawl! This guy was a bit of a challenge because I wanted to limit the detailing to make it more realistic, but not too simple to make it cartoony. I opted to only paint details in robot mode, yet keep the minimalist paint a real-world tank has. Most detailing is accomplished by just shading. This is the first figure that I modified in this set. Just a simple putty over the details on his left arm, so I could put a faction symbol. I also have some pics of Swindle disassembled. A few should hint at where I'm going with Bruticus. Also, since these are full repaints, tons of prep work (mostly sanding and fitment testing) is required to make sure that all the moving parts don't chip/rub when being transformed. All of my later projects can be transformed (no ham-hands!) with little fear of damaging the paint. Go easy on the paint job, it's not final! Edit 1 ** Now for some real pics! Onslaught I thought about posting the torso mode, but I figured I'd just wait for that as a big reveal. I'm about 3/4 way through with Brawl I hope you enjoy!
