Battlefield 1. That is the name of this custom PC system build we are featuring on our blog today. It has been only a few days since the release of the long awaited BF franchise sequel. A builder by the name of Gregory Rousseau has been pretty active around BF1 (the videogame as well as his build) since the beginning of the open beta.

Take a look at Gregory’s build (not in its natural enviroment though) below.

My build is based on the Battelfield 1 theme design and to find my inspiration I played during all the beta. Later i chose to create the same armor that we can find on the in-game tank. I use a special paint “real paint of the war period”. The special idea of the mod is the tubbing paint . I decide to paint in metal grey to get a special effect like “real inner workings of machines”. The mod was actually very simple to realise, the time went into the spraypainted decals and details.
