    Well I decided that I'd go for it and try my hand at repainting my first figure. It's hard to look at the awesome works here and not be inspired to try and do one myself. :rock 

    I had a spare War Within Prime sitting around and when my Classics Nemesis Prime arrived the other day it dawned on me to try to make this one.

    There's still a few mistakes that I need to go back and fix. Mainly with the canopy area where the head drops down. But once I assembled it tonight to see how it looked I wanted to post here and get everyone's opinion.

    So here goes, be gentle with me guys, it's my first time. :eek:

    Dude that is really good for your first time. Love the way you used the color scheme. You didn't over-do any of the accent colors.

    Is this the first TF you painted or the first action figure you painted?

    This is the first ANYTHING that I've painted. But I did do a lot of reading in the How To and Tutorial sections here the night before I started. So any credit should go to them, they're extremely helpful.

    Thanks!

    This is great to hear. :)  You did a really nice job and we're very glad that the Radicons was able to help you out with your project! Amazing what some reading and application will do :D 

    I'm surprised that Hasbro never made this while the Titanium line was active. It would have been an easy repaint for them and I'm sure it would have sold well, especially as an exclusive.

    Welcome to Radicons, and thanks for starting off on such a great note as not only a contributer, but a good example to others :wink:  I hope you'll continue to go on the track you're on! :thumb
