Redstorm doesn't photograph easy for some reason, maybe it's the background I chose or just his color schemes. After serveral shots, I was able to get some pictures that are close to what he looks like in real life.
The gallery is now updated with more accurate and better photos.
The *New* lightbox photos from the photos I took over my break have been added below.

Originally, this custom was going to be Warpath. As it progressed and with all the Warpath customs out there, I felt it would be more fun to make it an original counter Warpath Decepticon: Redstorm.
Redstorm is Warpath on steroids with roidrage. He has an endless variety of munitions to load into his hive of rocket launchers. Like Warpath his favorite munitions are simple explosive shells but unlike Warpath, Redstorm fires 8x a time. Redstorm's style of hunting is using himself as bait. He's a big red target to be shot at so he can generously return the favor. He does not hesitate in returning fire nor does he care if his barrage of rockets turns innocent by-standers into red or metallic mist.
The sound of Redstorm's KABOOMs can be heard and felt from miles away. In close quarters, the pain of his fist pounding into and shattering Autobots can be felt by onlookers. Redstorm is one big red mean Decepticon.
When I first saw Hailstorm, the mold this custom is based off, I wanted to customize it. It would take a couple months to figure out how I would go about customizing the figure. I didn't want to do realistic and make it look like the M270 Military Vehicle the mold was based on as seen to the right.
So instead, I used War for Cybertron Warpath as my main source of inspiration. Considering my Redstorm's personality the color red turned out to be a fitting color in the end.
Redstorm is basically completed; he just needs to have his decepticon logos put on and some better pictures taken.
