I've been watching this unfold on Instagram and it's mighty impressive. It's a good job he didn't theme it around the Jakobs brand. Nobody needs to paint that much wooden paneling in an army! :P


It's interesting to look at since it's impossible to put edge highlights along the panel lines due to the cel shading effect. I painted some of my Flash Gits based on the Torgue colour scheme but I didn't go the whole way and paint the black lines in.


It's a shame this painter doesn't appear to be on B&C, I'll have to congratulate him on Instagram.

Formerly known as Flame Boy since about 1999. Time for a change! smile.png

Funnily enough a friend of mine texted me the other day with these tau. They look great.
