    Hey guys, the same client who commissioned me for Machine Wars Megatron also wanted him to have his nemesis, so naturally Prime came along!

    Basic Beast Hunters Prime into Machine Wars paint job with no mods. Custom FP shotgun by The Pitt Workshop (collaboration between Megatron31 and myself).

    are you guys casting the FP shotguns for sale or just personal projects? I wouldn't mind an extra set or two. Custom looks good
