Sweet kit so far Vod!  I'm just starting the concepts for a Late Crusader kit.  Trying to work out the details for the chest plate (less Rohlan) and a better backplate (currently too legacy looking).

Well the funny thing about crusader vs legacy is there are many reference images where crusader plates look very much like they could be legacy plates. The general issue with the legacy era is there is only a very very tiny pool of reference images to pull from and by tiny I mean one comic book. Where there are a TON for crusader at the end of the day the only thing that really sets legacy apart from crusader is the bucket and that is only true if you go with the quad-T or the triangle T

Really the fun of building in the crusader era is the flexibility you have in your plate design. The general rule of thumb for crusader is make sure you have a reference image or two, to back you up and just keep the App team looped in if you are breaking off and doing something wildly different from the norm, ie: my new plate design 

If you haven't yet take a look at these two threads, the crusader era is a HUGE time period and covers everything from before the neo-crusaders, clearly skips the neo-crusaders themselves and then covers everything after them up until the modern time, it is a huge sand box

Thanks Vod, I've looked through both threads and found some other types of chest armour to explore.

Here is what I've drawn up so far (the idea is for a late crusader beast hunter, first get approved and then make the minor changes for the brigade):


See the backplate, that is what I refer too as the legacy plates.  It is all on paper right now, researching like crazy and only working on few things such as bells and knees (hard hats).  The bucket is on order (Rohlan Dyre from Bigwater99).  I have to have a backplate for the brigades and I'd like to change up the chestplates (as I said less Rohlan).

I'd like to post more on my thread after someone comments, so I don't intentionally double post.  ;)

Tomar, I'd suggest starting your own WIP in: Forum Mandalorian Armor Alternative Era Armor Crusader/Neo Crusader Armor
This way people can give you feedback on your helmet other than hijacking Naran's thread here.

My design, still very much so a work in process.

Thanks Vod for sending people over to my WIP.  I'm sorry if my post got everyone else hijacking your thread.  Pretty cool, that we are around the similar stage of construction late crusader armour and only off by 67 OMs in our number.

BACK ON TOPIC with your WIP, what material did you use to design your chest plates?  The picture looks like a leather-like thick cardboard.  Are those rivets or chicago screws?  How is your backplate coming along?

No worries on the thread hijack it happens and happy to send people over to your W.I.P thread, I am always happy to see more non-modern kits :)

The plates are sintra the gold plates have just been hammered by using a drum sander on the demrel the wrong way, the straps are just leather belting and I use chicago screws over rivets as it makes repairs easier and during a build just makes making adjusts much less of a pain.

I did get feedback from the app team in regards to my chest plates, going to need to bring the under plate bring up all the way up and close the gap between the top plates a touch, but otherwise things are moving forward. Biggest hold up is waiting on more sintra to arrive so I can make plates again.

I have mocked up the full set of chest and backplate in cardboard, just need to find out which box my tape is pack in so I can attach them and take some pictures  :laugh: hopefully I will have some pictures of the full plate designs up later today.

Mi'ix

I had a hunch the app team wouldn't like the gap between the chest plates like that.  Did you receive any additional feedback about the kit in general or did you just ask about the chest plates? 

The best thing I can advise is to have an app team member along for the ride on this build and reference, reference, and then some more reference on the ideas you want to do for this kit.   

I look forward to seeing how this one comes out and helping you along the way.

No worries guys thread hijacking happens all the time, no harm no foul

Anyway, made some very solid headway on the chest plate today. Very happy with how it turned out. As always thoughts and feedback are wanted and appreciated. Plan on knocking out the backplate tomorrow at which time I will post some pictures of the plates on me :)

Just a quick overall update, chest plate is about 95% done just need to do some minor painting here and there, also wanted to go ahead and get a picture up for the waist items and the cod/hard belt.

Going to finish the backplate today, still need to work out what I am going to do for the other shoulder plate.

Are you planning on painting some of those rivets/hardware to match your paint?
