This guy has been a WIP for me for over a year now and I finally decided to finish him. I think that waiting all this time was a good thing as my skills have definatly evolved even further thus making this Undead samurai well worth the time I took on him. IMO I think this is my best piece to date (TF wise).

Bludgeon started as an Optimus and Megatron 2 Pack. I removed Mega face and cast a Ghost Rider SHS figures skull for the face. The head piece of the helmet came from the knee of a Spawn figure. I added a ball joint from a MARS kit for the neck and bored the under size of the head out to give his head full range movement.

The upper body consists of Megatrons chest and upper arms with Prime forearms and fist. I drilled a hole that would fit a Battle Ravage gun which then acts as the turret and shoulder canon. The gun can be removed and use as a regular gun.

The lower body is were all the haevy work came in. I had to add the tread half of Megs legs to Primes. I had to bore, drill pegs and glue the crud of these till I was satisfied that they looked natural.

I copied the G1 paint scheme as close as possible with creative paint apps to make it look more natural in both modes. A paint app breakdown follows:
Orange sections: Red then Orange, then yellow then a very light dry brush of silver

Green Sections: Dar Angels green, Snot Green, Camo Green, then a final light dry brush of Silver

Maroon Sections: Started as Blood red then Coated with a Warlock purple, very light drybrush of yellow then silver.

Various detailing was added after the main colors were added to show wear and robotic detailing. The tank treads were given a spattered mud effect that carried on thru to the tank sections. th mus flow is a natural progression that follows thru for a natural effect.

The shield (which becomes the tank top) was from a Gundam 00 as is the sword. The sword can combine with the shield to make a lance.

And thats it! If ya read this far its much appreciated as I kinna went on a ways in describing the creation process for this guy!

Thanks for looking at Bludgeon,
Shinobi

(BTW Bludgeon has great poseabilty and balance thus letting me put him in the SHORYUKEN pose)

This is truly an amazing piece. At a first glance the thumbnail looked like a junkion, but what a surprise this is. The painting details impresses me the most. You have definitely raised the bar for your future works.
