    I'll take as a compliment, for comparison Max in base mode is wider (that's compared to the main structure without any other components) but this thing towers above Max in robot mode, kinda like a Decepticon Barad-dur.

    Painting is done, spraying tomorrow and then I'll apply labels (Decepticon badges, G2 symbols, Predacon symbols and maybe some stuff relating to the Thirteen) then this project is done.

    Well it's not all rust, some of it is the martian sand, some of the close-ups show the sandy/crust textures.

    I voted grindcore because of how gritty it looks

    Nice. Can't wait to see the final product. Are you gonna do a photoshoot of it when you're done?

    Yeah, I'll keep the photos coming. Speaking of photos I was looking over it and I saw something really cool.

    Look at these deformations, they weren't there before. A chemical reaction with the spray-varnish/gloss must've caused these cracks....... I love it!

    Looks great, it's kinda cool that it came out with that sorta unintended effect, also I'm gonna take your advice on the whole using moss to cover up imperfections, cause my diorama had some issues with the clay cracking, so I'll just use the moss to cover that up. Also, regarding the decepticon city, are you ever gonna put some turrets or cannons on the thing, cause those would look sick

    Funny you should mention turrets, I got these in an "Alien Marine Accessory pack" I got it cheap and wanted the guns for my Marvel Legends so I've got these sitting around. They're well-painted and have decent articulation so I figured why not.

    They won't be on the playset itself but the rather the space around it. Also I want to find a use for those little computers.

    Whoooo, that's brutal. Looks amazing though. I think better lighting and better backgrounds would make this decepticon city look amazing, especially in pics

    Well that's the goal, the Decepticons (especially the movie versions) remind me of the Locust from Gears of War or the forces of Chaos from Warhammer 40k, brutal, vicious and savage.

    Yeah I need to use something other than my phone but hey, maybe a backdrop and a better camera is the next step.
