    137th Gebirg from ASAP was able to get me a nice, large scan from the BSG compendium. I worked on it to remove the extreme moire pattern and enhance the colors and contrast. I also added a slight canvas texture.

    Watch 'ya think?

    Oh that is GREAT. Very cool to see the "old" Cylons in a battle painting like that. :)

    They're fighting with spears?

    The spears do seem kind of out of place.

    Yeah, but the Cylons always did carry, and use (Baltar's head...) swords. It might be a case that when it reached close combat both sides used melee weapons instead of lasers.

    Lol - awesome. Great minds think alike. We made posters of that in our office a few months ago.
    They got about as large as 18x24 before taking a hit, quality-wise.

    Cool to see your interpretation.

    Well... unfortunately the source was a scan from a mag/book and after removing the heavy moiré pattern much of the sharper details are lost. The image I posted above is not much smaller than the file that I created so printing anything larger than 18 inchs as Moff pointed out and you will begin to see all of the compression artifacts. Sorry...

    The image that was scanned is complete, unfortunately the source doesn't represent the actual painting as it is indeed cropped. Some of the sky as well as the bottom are missing and a slight bit from both sides. Gotta make due with what was available.
