Hopefully i'll get my hands on my new chrome/black bane mk2 champion, deep red next month. During the wait period, several ideas came to my mind for the finishing of the hilt. Standard version is also awesome, but what if a chrome/black combined with the weathered version (v1)? or a brass-plated weathered version (v2)? I'm actually planning to tweak the hilt a little when it arrives. Before i proceed, i made some quick photoshop works, adding them below...

So, waiting for your opinions! v1 or v2?

I do not know which version to go for. Both seems good in my eyes. Waiting for Bane lovers' opinions.

Not the strongest Bane fan here but damn, in the (SF) weathered body with both plated accents (more so the Brass) it'd be enough to get me off the fence.

I really like the weathered and chrome look. That's snazzy.

Here is the copper-plated + weathered version. I'm confusing myself :)

:woohoo: phenomenal! Eliminate the confusion with the introduction of fusion, or rather... put me down for one of each. Copper and Brass please. :lol: :whistle:

I wonder... How about a metalic red or blue? Maybe with the finger ridges in silver or gold...

I like the gold look, but if the rest is weathered, oil rubbed bonze would work best imo.

Bronze could be interesting to try on a saber. But first i need to practice it on something else.

Awesome stuff here; can you do more different kinds of photoshopping on sabers :lol: ? For us non-wizkids who don't have the skills nor the imagination to envision these kind of finishes, it would be cool to see how other sabers would look with a copper, brass, gold or other powdercoats :woohoo:

I want to but i do not have a lot of time. I just can envision the sabers that i will have. In this case, i am waiting my bane mk2 and created these versions. In the following days, maybe i can do for arbiter and bastion as i am waiting for them also.
