Nirobs Open Seasons Grunt WIP

Hey,

working on a OS Deathwatch grunt at the moment.

I am working with the following sources:

Star Wars Miniatures OS inspired grunt.
This is why I use gold instead of yellow as a secondary color. The figure was released with a LFL copyright, so I think it can be considered a "canon" resource for the color, since they used it on two different miniatures based on OS Deathwatch.





Also the color seems to be gold in this art of an OS Deathwatch grunt.




So here is the finished helmet.

That's looking good, Nirob!

Have you made any more progress since then?

Yes, the vest is tighter and I got a belt plus the pockets for it. Planning on getting the Palladium Pampa high in forged iron.

This looks great, and completely spot on!  Armor placement looks good, maybe a bit tight between the chest plates and collar, but they all look perfectly weathered and shaped.  Watch out for flightsuit bagginess in the legs and arms. 

What's your plan for the thigh armor?

The suit is at my motherinlaw at the moment. She will sew it tighter.

When I have it back, I will attach the additonal plates at the legs with velcro.

This is just a beautiful build.  You've hit everything on the head, imo.

What have you been considering as far as a weapon?
