How to Paint a custom “Battle Damaged & Weathered” Optimus Prime or Any Other Toy, Model or Collectible

In my guide, I teach how I customize and paint a “Battle Damaged” toy, model or collectible. I use a Voyager Class Optimus Prime (Hunt for the Decepticons series) as an example for in the tutorial.

The first thing you need to do is paint your base colours first before painting in the “battle damage”. Remember, “battle damage” is the last layer since it is sustained over the finished figure.

Check out my Custom Optimus Prime blog at: for more photos, examples of my work and learn how to customize your own Optimus Prime.
