From far away, you wouldn't know it was foam! Photo #4 - The guns in the Borderlands games are very colorful and futuristic.

They even glow in the dark! Photo #6 - Here's a shot of the shield before I painted it Photo #7 - The bags he wears on his belt Photo #8 - Started to paint the jacket Photo #9 - Adding the foam on the boots Photo #10 - His ear pieces made out of crayola model magic, before I painted them black
