Late Crusader Wip - Ni Ori'Dush
« on: Mar 28, 2018, 11:26 AM »
Su cuy'gar Mando'ade!

I'm starting my first kit. So I wanna present you the advances, obviously supervised and with the aproval of my Ruus'Alor. I must also indicate that over the current assembly there are already changes that I am still making, however for lack of time I could not make the photos. Feel free for your opinion, vode!

This is my aproved concept


And the Helmet design


I started with the flight suit


And the plates design, cut and molding








After, came the pouches and belt sewing




The paint of the pieces...






And the assembly



The helmet was a very very hard work. First, I designed it from my old Executor Helmet patterns, fixing manually and redesigning what were necessary.







After came the hardened, sanding, and painting. However, still some changes remaining, sugested by my Ruus'Alor.











The actual assembly is this for now. I have done a extension for chest plate, and cutted a bit of the hand plate, shins, knees and boot plates, but these photos are not taken yet because I haven't time actually.




Finally the weapon: I started over a commercial toy, but I had disassambled, sanded, added greeblies and converted in a sniper rifle.






I installed a couple of energy cells, but the placement were not accurated. As you see in the assambly photo, the cells were moved to the side, and the sigth were moved to his initial placement.



That's all for now, I hope this hollidays I could post the final advances.

This is a great looking kit Vod!  I love seeing new Late Crusader WIPs.  Beautiful work on that bucket.

Fair warning I like to take pictures and I've written a novel, so be prepared for both.

Great job modifying that rifle -- it looks amaaazzziinnnggg. Good use of the leather, and I'm in love with the torso plate designs (I'm such a sucker for anything Clone-like :laugh: ). The trauma plating looks great on the chest and abdomen.

Have you thought about doing some blackwash on the plates, per chance? If there is blackwash and I can't see it, ignore this. ;)

Something else you might consider is adding more greeblies or do-dads or switches to a few of the plates:

Crusader kits are usually covered in all kinds of random crap to get that rugged, lived-in tech look. Just something to think about. :)

I'm so happy to see another Crusader kit, and yours is great. Can't wait to see the updates you mentioned!

Your kit looks dope so far dude! I feel like it could benefit from the kama being of heavier material, but it doesn't look bad as is.
