Spookyrumba's Future Kit Plans
« on: Sep 03, 2019, 02:41 AM »
Hey everyone!

So officially I'm working towards OM status with my Season 4 Sabine build.... but my brain wouldn't shut up last night after I fell down a rabbit hole of reading forum threads so I started sketching and, well. It was game over for me at that point  :laugh: So anyways, for now I'm focusing on Sabine (WIP thread here, I haven't posted since last year but I've started working on stuff this weekend so updates soon hopefully!) BUT, I couldn't not share these plans because now I'm SUPER HYPED! Having this in the lineup for after Sabine is gonna be even more motivation to get up to snuff quickly! :D

Full kit plan:



Flight suit/flak vest plan (*NOTE: the red lines are just to indicate where I'll be inserting an invisible zipper, they won't acutally be red! Also, in case you can't read my notes: the short sleeves are a separate shirt layer (or maybe a double sleeve on the flight suit) and NOT part of the flak vest!)



Excuse the derpy smiley face, I couldn't be bothered to draw a real face. The whole look is vaguely Nite Owl inspired, but with my own flair (and some weird fun blocking on the flight suit a la Clan Wren - actually, is the blocking even approvable?) Anyways, I'm looking forward to seeing what other people think of this concept!

Lovin the look of this. So many different ideas from the colour scheme to segmented backplate. Watching this one with interest.

Update:

Thanks everyone! So Sabine progress has been slow, which means I've been doodling more ideas for this kit in my spare time (updates on that are coming soon, I swear). This is not technically "armor" concepts since it's just gonna be (some of) her loadout, but I didn't want to start a new thread for just more concept/planning art of the same kit so \_(ツ)_/ Happy to move if mods don't think it's in the right place!

Anyways, not sure if these (the blaster specifically) are swarzy enough? Blaster base is gonna be a nerf gun (I know those are frowned upon but this is a future build that I have time to rework anyway, heh) I had lying around. Disassembled it and flipped some pieces around and painted over the photo to make the concept. I could use more ideas if it doesn't look swarzy enough. Real excited to build the vibroblade though!

Looks like a Nerf Sharpfire.  It's a good start but will still need some modding.  It's very close to the Jyn Erso blaster in Rogue 1.  That may be an easier path if that's the profile you're going for.

Huh. It started out as a Nerf Rival Kronos so I figured it had changed significantly enough. What kinds of further mods would you suggest? I'm pretty determined not to buy any premade pieces so the alternative is scratch building it, I suppose.

Wow! Great job making it not look like the Kronos!  With the Kronos as the base you've succeeded.
