"Accurized" Barricade


Recommended Posts

Well, I wasn't digging how my Barricade was looking, and I definitely did NOT like his gold mouth, so I went ahead and did a full robot mode repaint. Additionally, I painted in his rear windows with a darkened GW Tin Bitz to represent tinted windows (even though I believe they were clear in the movie), and hit the entire vehicle mode with a nice spray of Glosscote. Wheels and rims were also painted.

 

In addition, I performed smuggles' knee mod, and I also carved out some of the cup in the back of his shoulder joints to give him a few extra degrees of movement there.

 

Although I call this my "Accurized" Barricade, I do not claim movie accuracy. I based the paint off the renders that hit the web a few months back. He just looks a little more like that than a black stick.

 

Behold!

In alt mode, he's so glossy he can reflect a clone trooper off his hood!

I am REALLY enjoying the silver face & hands (something I considered, but never actually painted). Looks GREAT!

By the way, everything I used on Barricade is a stock color except the darker metallic grey.

 

I used Testor's enamel and Games Workshop Boltgun Metal on the limbs and head (parts that seemed to have a chrome finish were done in Testor's, everything else in Boltgun Metal). The metallic blue was left alone. The dark metallic grey on his rims and "wrists" is a mix of Boltgun Metal, black, and about a 3:2 ratio of charcoal dust, which gives it a really flat finish. The underside of the car panels on his arms is Tamiya Flat Black, as are some details in his face. All Testor's silver parts were painted over with clear paint from Tamiya. I might go over everything else with some Dullcote, not sure yet.

I really like how his hands stand out.
