[Showcase] Sunset Retribution Army #2

Note:  The blue armor seems to be horrible to photograph.  No matter what settings I use, the effect on the model isn’t being captured well.  As a result, they look somewhat flat and off in photos, but they look stellar in person.  I’m going to keep at it, but as reference, here’s the original ...
