Thank you. I aim to keep it at just the one! Figured if I was going to make a thread to give people a chuckle, I would go all out :P

lol. Tempting, but no, I had to fight for that paper. Anything vaguely square and flat is considered a good bed and good beds are not to be left without at least a little clinging on and mrrrowing hopefully that this time the human doesn't reeeeally want this thing they put down 10 seconds ago.

Junior Management had far too much energy and was being a lovely photographic blur (can nexu get high from lacquer... he did go and give my plates a good sniff, silly boy).
Aforementioned plates are complete: damaged, weathered and attached to the leather backing. I now clatter when I move - knew there was something I'd forgotten - was meaning to get some little foam sticky things, the sort you put on doors to stop them damaging a wall.
Also got the little black fur pouch and trophy braid on the left attached. And not pictured but my second shoe now has armour cut out. Yay.



Next: shape, weather and attach the boot armour.

Quick, have a sneaky look at the first boot, sanded, shaped and weathered, just the attaching to go. (And do you know how hard it is to take a picture when there's a pygmy nexu hanging off the wrist strap on the camera?!)


Knees are also well underway - fibreglass/resin and filler. They've got a primer and black layer on so far. They appear to have passed their first inspection though.

The Junior Manager was impressed by the size of box that came for just one can of paint (top coat for the knees). The Manager has been enjoying using the now emptied box to lounge around and watch the ongoing work.


Next: Get the other boot to the same stage and paint the knees.

Boxes make good nexu traps, don't they? They are very useful when trying to keep them away from trouble.

Mine decided I was outside for too long yesterday and started telling me off when I came back in.

Mine decided I was outside for too long yesterday and started telling me off when I came back in.

Oh yeah. Totally been there.
On a similar note. Look at the disgust at my invasion of his windowsill to find some light to get a good close up pic of the weathering on the boot plates.

(Waving the laces however appease all my nexu)



The Supervisor requested that I check the bottom of the fur is covering all traces of the laces and I decided to do a full kit up because I could. The ankle area was apparently satisfactory. Although he did point out that parcel tape was not an acceptable material to hold up the knees.

He also decided that once up in my arms (I really did want a pic where the shoes were visible and he wasn't shifting) instead of going for a forward dismount he would instead scale down the back of the human servant...



Next: continue working on other shoe.

Finished The Managers back armour but she decided she wasn't going to use it for seagull protection so I'll be adding it to the back of my shoes as heel armour. (Thanks Kitala for the spikes)



Edit:
Teaser of the upcoming chest armour. The Assistant Manager tried to cover it but I got the picture while it was only slightly out of place. Really doesn't look like a 34DD from this angle does it? :P Chest plate is fibreglass and resin then a rondo coat so far, the ab plates are 1.2mm aluminium.

Hmm, battlecat, must resist urge to construct actual cat-armour :P

Also chest armour looking really good, looking forward to seeing it complete with all the boney weathering and all that jazz, but yeah glad the random metal boobekin helped you out there :P

No Mal. NO. You will not armour our Nexu! We will all die.

And yeah, the metal mannequin worked brilliantly as a base shape for fibreglassing on so the card keeps it's 'me' shape. Also useful as a wipe clean work board for planning armour placement.

The Manager is pleased with the progress using the aforementioned technique. 2 outside chest plates are 'glass and resined and the bondo is in varying states of smooth.

Bit more work on the two outer breast plates over the past couple of days. Management team thinks it's fine, note the lack of protest given. I'm not entirely convinced about the mark I bone effect, although it does look better during daylight than through the fluorescent filter on the camera. Still, opinions?

I think you've done a great job of recreating weathered/aged bone, I'd be tempted to add some chips and cracks once happy with the finish. Makes me very excited about the finished kit :)

Most of those two plates are actually underneath the leather pauldron thing so I left them fairly pristine, but the shoulders and gaunts will definitely be more beaten up.


So, the Supervisor here is looking very handsome as he shows off what my housemate can do in about two or three hours. Thanks Maldemar, I suppose I'll have to forgive you for attempting to break my finger ;):P Pretty much all the shaping done to the base, so just planishing, smoothing, and then all the details to go...
