Games Workshop featured the image on their facebook and it blew the roof off of my stats.

Bad Hair Day Big Sal the Stampede

A second customized Big Sal turned Vash from Trigun as a commission from the October Toys forum. I didn’t want to fully destroy the Glitter Smoke version I was sent, so I masked off the antennae to preserve the transparency there. Also has GID eyes.
