Avior's First Armor
« on: Apr 22, 2018, 04:59 PM »
So, I've actually had my chest armor and shoulder bells cut and formed since my first armor party, which was forever ago, but I'm just getting around to posting about it. Onyx of Aiwha Riders Clan did nearly all of that, along with help from several others there.

Now, within the past week or so, I've actually done quite a bit of work. Not all was on my plates, most was on my helmet, but I've got most of it painted.






For the future, I plan for a backplate, cod plate, knees, and gauntlets. I may do shins, but still undecided.
But, none of that will be happening soon, I leave for RTC Great Lakes on Tuesday. But dont fret, I'll be back!

Those are some very pink plates! With that green, I really like it  ;D. Great start

Rise necropost! Rise!
:porg2:
...Ahem... Now that that's out of the way.
So sorry to keep you guys waiting so long for an update. I was away on business, and it didn't allow for anything fun. But, I'm back and ready to go.
Got some painting and weathering done today, no weathering on the chestplates though.


What do you think?

Alas, my friends, they are red.  :) My lighting just really sucks.

I think we've established that I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing, and am just winging it at this point. But, here we go, my attempt at weathering armor. Not done by a long shot. Probably going to sand it down a bit. We'll see how it goes.
Sorry for the weird angle.

That's looking pretty nice.  Get some black wash on it, and that weathering will really pop!  Keep up the great work.

Starting on that as we speak!
