    This is my thread for my Beast Wars Impactor with Mini-Con partner Armorhide custom.
    In here I will post progress updates on this custom and as soon as it's finished a link to its gallery in my general customs thread where you can see all of my customs' galleries in an overview (link to that also in my signature).
    The base figure is Armada Rhinox which is a recolor and slight retool (added Mini-Con ports) to Transmetals Rhinox. For his head I use R.I.D. 2015 Overload ones.

    gallery (coming soon)​

    To create this effect of cracked skin I used GreenStuffWorld's Crackle Paint - Badlands and before I filled out the hollow gaps in his forearms with hot glue.

    I paint major parts of the figure black as a base coat for another effect paint/color you'll see soon ;)

    Here's a little glimpse:

    Here's how I usually add articulation:

    Those are LEGO Mixels ball joints. Part numbers: 14704, 14417, 14418, 14419, 2736

    And here's another pic of the main body with one of the Mini-Con ports/pegs relocated at his back:

    And I had to relocate the part of his spine that originally pokes into his back:

    ...because it would have colided with the Mini-Con port/peg that ends up inside his chest in robot mode:

    Now that part is hidden behind his robot head:
