Perhaps Armothe could screenprint a bloody pattern on some of the swords (Goblin Sword, Raider Blade, etc). He could also print a rust pattern on actual guns (Grease Gun, Military Rifle, Coilgun)...

Screenprinted Vambraces to go with the Powered Assault Commando armor would be nice.

As Shmails alluded to we are working a lot more with screen printing. Most every idea in this topic has been thought of and a lot of them are already underway. Believe it or not, screen printing is a very complicated process. Each color is printed on its own layer - which means if the product shifts then the layers don't line up correctly. Convex surfaces are much more difficult to print on but we've been pushing the envelope ever since we printed the first Holstein Cow.

I really think you guys are going to love the stuff we come out with over the next few months!

I've seen that on official Lego sometimes.
