Has anyone ever done Tron Style?
 
I was looking around for Tron Inspired art for my graphic design project and I decided to be curious and type in google "Tron Warhammer" and wow...

[Not sure who made this, but this person needs to show moaar!]

Amazing, would love to see a full army inspired by Tron, hell, when I start making Terrains I think I'm going to make a Tron-like level, tho the trick would be making everything look like shinny plastic.

that looks pretty damn good

Yes, actually now that I think about it... how would it be possible to make something like Styro-foam look Glossy like Glass?

This goes for anything else you can use, cause I'm talking about Base, Buildings, ect... all being glossy.

holy hell that is awsome, have to do that at one point. and you could just paint the styro foam then gloss vanish it

Found it's source, amazing!
I can really see Tau rocking this style with ease, thanks to all the lining in the models, it literally cries out for it.

Wow, that is nice.

I'll definitely have to try this at some point with my meager painting skills. Though I'm not sure what I'd be painting....

Aw man, that makes me want to start a Tron-themed Tau army so badly :unsure:

Looks completely awesome

One of my gaming buddy's DE have a color scheme that "accidentally" in his words created a Tron look. I'll try to get a picture of his Razorwing when I see him next Tuesday. It's not as good as the model you found but works.

I like the look. I especially like the painting you did on the energy barrel and feeder cable.

Use gloss varnish.

Like this. I went for a rougher look on purpose but most styrofoam can be sanded to a smooth surface, then painted and glossed.
