With a new year coming, and the old Ohl'd Vart armor and helmet being retired after 5 years of no upgrades, it's time for a change. I figured I'd start a new thread for the new kit, so I can keep on top of the build and keep the incentive going; I want to have it ready to use by spring of 2016.

I'm not going to add a lot of text to the photos, but this will be more of a "add them as I get it done" type thread...but as always, if anyone has any questions, I'll be glad to answer.  ;)

If anyone is interested, I used the large OV Legacy patterns, with 6mm Sintra for the base, and 3mm for details.  :)

I love that texture.

Thanks...it's hours of using a round Dremel stone, trying for the "aged metal look". ;)

Loving the look of this!  Doing that texture manually is beyond nuts, but I'm loving it!  May just have to try to replicate that...in an albeit smaller scale.

Wow OV...  You _ARE_ dedicated to your craft...

I used ABS on my legacy plates but instead of having the "smooth" side facing out - I went with the "textured" inside finish because it was more aesthetically interesting to me.  My chest diamond as actually a 3-D test print from one of my clan mates (Thanks Bowfanny!) that I glued to the center of the breast plate.

My painting was minimal since all I really needed to do was cover up the silver color from the Chicago screws.

Thanks for the comments, guys.  :)

Yeah, that black dust is killer on the lungs, so I have to wear a mask....that microscopic crap gets everywhere. I wasn't prepared for all of the pieces I'd have to be doing, so this is going to take me a lifetime....I'm hoping to vary the details somewhat on some of the armor parts with bas-relief work, so I won't have to Dremel all of it.

I'm also going to do a top coat of a graphite metallic grey, with maybe some silver wash highlights...I'm going for the "cast iron" look, if i can pull it off.

I worked on the shoulder pauldrons tonight, but as in all things engineering, it worked on paper better than it did in practice; the card model versions I built made my shoulder silhouette look like a First Order TIE fighter, so it's back to square one on the design, lol.

You've definitely done an amazing job with those, really nailed that old, hammered texture. They definitely look like they weigh a ton  :laugh:

Are you going to give your helmet the same texture? Plates look amazing Rob! You are the example of which we follow on these legacy kits!
