Day 1, where to start. Oh yeah, the same as every other model painting project, research!

 

I knew I wanted these bots to pay homage to the construction robots from the 1980s series of Hasbro’s Transformers cartoon, the bright green Decepticon Constructicons and their combined form Devastator!

I found a couple of photos of Devastator in toy form (not the original, these are the super detailed, mega-expensive 3rd party versions) and the bots themselves from the IDW comicbook.

So continuing my research I knew that to achieve the bright green I need I would need a white primer, I usually do a zenith prime from black with a white directional, but for this project I went with grey and white so I’d didnt have to worry too much about dealing with such a dark starting point.

All bots primed, big bot is just tacked together as I will be painting him in sub assemblies All bots primed, big bot is just tacked together as I will be painting him in sub assemblies
