    Titans Return Tarn with Glitch (Shapeways)

    Update Oct 22nd, 2018


    In case you haven't been following me on Twitter or my Facebook page,
    I just want to share that I've went back to school to learn more school stuff,
    and hopefully pick up new tricks to create more awesome things.

    As such, time has been quite limited for me lately, but I still want to scratch that
    customising itch. Thankfully the projects I've been planning lately all rely of quick
    paint jobs and minimal redesigning to produce the biggest effect, and I hope you'll
    appreciate this new approach.

    All that's been said and done, allow me to introduce the captain of the
    Decepticon Justice Division, Tarn!

    Update Oct 22nd: Finally got my hands on a proper Photobooth, so here's the formal
    photoshoot that was originally meant to be!


    [​IMG]

    His Headmaster / Titanmaster is Glitch, a Point One Percenter who imbues Tarn with the
    deadly ability to disable any cybertronian with his voice.

    Due to Tarn's obsessive compulsion with his boss, he shares the same body archetype but arms
    himself with twice the firepower. An additional cockpit turret can be added to allow other Masters to
    mount on his weapon and aid him in aiming. As befitting his addictive, obsessive personality, Tarn can choose to bolster his weapons' power by installing up to two Prime Masters.

    His alt mode is a formidable tank with massive cannons and comfortable bucket seating. He also turns into a heavily armed jet bomber to bring the wrath of Megatron on his enemies.

    Lastly, he does turn into a base in case Glitch needs to sit down and do his paperwork.

    And so, this end my brief introduction of DJD leader Tarn. I lack the funds to buy any third party version
    of this character, so I decided to paint one up (with the easiest paint job I can think of). TR Megatron was quite suitable due to its build and customisability. A lot of thought went into choosing areas *not* to paint
    as I wanted to avoid paint rub as far as possible. Thus explaining the large areas of grey. I might add some
    colour to his wings later, we shall see.

    The chestplate, faceplate, fusion cannons, aux cannons and turret seat were all 3D printed. I was really glad everything
    came out looking pretty swell.

    Thanks for viewing and I hope you guys like it!

    If you wanted to you could always add the toyhax megatron to yarn conversion kit, don’t know how much it would add at this point, but.

    Chucking in a bunch of shots today of my little Tarn BASE MODE!
    Also want to take the opportunity to announce that the links to the 3D print models are up on the first post, in case anyone's interested in
    creating their own Tarn custom.

    As always, your work is glorious. I think the paint application is just fine to me. We all know that Tarn does have more puple and black but thats just blends so easily and gets lost to the abyss, so I prefer this paint job than the original.

    This is absolutely beautiful, fantastic job!

    Quick question! I realize you said things have been busy as of late, but something else you said really caught my attention:

    "...quick paint jobs and minimal redesigning to produce the biggest effect..."

    The latter half of which I wanted to inquire about- might you be able to fit a commission into your schedule? I've artwork of a concept that converts the Transformers Animated Shadow Blade Megatron toy into The Fallen with minimal changes to the toy: a sticker sheet and a 3D printed head conversion kit...
