I'm not a fan of Borderlands, but I have to say that I'm really enjoying watching this project come together. It certainly has the makings of a true work of art! Bravo!

LED's

Started getting some work done on my LED's, wanted to change it from the boring single color but wanted to keep with the Borderlands colors ( red, orangeand yellow ) in the build.

RGB strips make this a lot easier, when i wanted to use yellow i would solder the Green and Red Connections together. I even used Orange and Yellow wires to keep with the theme.

Red hard drive window will have red and fan grill will have yellow

Red LED's on the other side will be hidden inside the rocks and have a slight angle so they point up along the case to give it a glowing red effect.

Not 100% sure now, was originaly looking at placing on the faceplate, but then i decided to make them a bit larger.

Bullet Shells, thought i would add 1 or 2 to the base to add to the look, got this image from the official Borderlands front page

Prep and Paint

If you havent already checked out the newest Borderlands 2 trailer click the link below.



Keeping the paint idea as a surprise for now, ill show you step by step as i go though.

Matte Black as the base

IPB Image

Lightly sanded back, ready for the next color over the top.
Picture resized a little weird the badges have come out rough.

Yes it will be good, if its anything like the first its going to be amazing.

A big thank you to Chris.F at Gearbox Software, he has sent me out some presents.

Gearbox Software Shirt, Traiding Cards, Fridge Magnets, Stickers and a bag to fit it all in. Appreciate you helping me out with this build.

I have watched the Doomsday trailer over and over.

Found some nice designs for the case, i used the image below and wanted a paint effect to go along with the design.

IPB Image

Painted all parts in a Matte Black base

IPB Image

IPB Image

After the black base was dry, i sprayed a wet coat of silver and quickly laid over some plastic wrap over the top and placed it down and lifted it back up to reveal a nice finish, similar to the pattern in the trailer that i was trying to achieve. This is the first stage of the paint, more to come.

A transparent black was sprayed over the top of my patterns, hard to see exactly in the pictures.

IPB Image

The more coats the darker it will get, weather hasnt been the best and painting during all this rain has made a less then perfect finish, it will be fixed, it looks worse in the pictures. Clear coat is still needed.

IPB Image

Working on the red glow on the side of the case.
