Moggin' with Tabards - Tabard of the Hand, Mail (Sam's Transmog Contest)

This was my third entry for Sam's Transmog Contest, which was to design a transmog to go with Tabard of the Hand.

This particular mog could be worn by both shaman and hunters. Hunters would obviously need to switch out the mace & off-hand for a bow or gun, but otherwise all pieces can be obtained and worn by both classes.

When I was putting this mog together, I used the same color blending method as I did with my Leather entry, with one difference. For the leather transmog I used shades of orange that were a lot lighter and closer to the colors actually used in the tabard. For this one I went for a much brighter and dramatic fade, again with darker shades starting at the bottom and gradually getting lighter as you move up the set. I was ultimately happier with how the leather mog came out, but I am still quite fond of this one too.
