Another entry in the "about damn time" department, the head is from WFC Cliffjumper (natch), as is the pistol. The B.F.G is a missile-launcher of some sort I've had in my parts-bins now for a couple of years, tipped with a part from Energon Shockblast's cannon.
The main color is straight Testors MM Guard's Red, mixed with some future, over a primer-coat of Krylon Fusion red. In addition he has parts painted in Testors Battleship Gray, Dragon Black, Gunmetal, and Citadel Mithril Silver. The B.F.G was originally a dark green, and I painted it first with Krylon Fusion Beige, and then Krylon Metallic Brilliant-Silver. Also, I mixed a wash of Guard's Red and Gunmetal for the details on his head, and his eyes were painted with a mix of Citadel Enchanted Blue and Testors Dragon White. The choice to do a bit of a wash on the head was a last-minute decision and I'm glad I opted to do it. He's also had a couple of reprolabels added, to further enhance the toy.
I had a near-mishap at the start when trying to paint him using Testors Enamel Italian Red, but there was an issue of some sort with the paint or the nozzle, as it came out all splattery. I had to quickly dunk the parts in alcohol and let them soak a bit to remove the mess. After that I went with the Fusion for a primer, and then hand-painted the Guard's Red over it. Whew!
I'm pretty happy with how he turned out, and pleased to place him back on my classics shelf.
