Approved- Uur Shaadlan -WIP First Armor Kit
« on: Jan 16, 2020, 05:46 PM »
Hey All,
Starting on my armor build.  I am doing a cardboard mock-up to get a rough spacing and sizing before I move to the PVC Board.  Not sure about the sizing of the plates.
Starting with my concept drawings. Those are still in flux as I try different things to find not only what I like but also what would be approved.

Spacing looks pretty good to me! My only concern is how wide the neck cut out is, I think if you made the sides thicker (to bring it closer to your neck) then that would help! I hope that makes sense? Lol

Thanks so much for the input.  I brought the sides of the neck in about 1cm.

I'm back at it with the cardboard modeling.   Did some work on my ideas for the shoulders.  I want some raised sections for depth contrast and for color placement.



I also did some work on my shins/knees...not sure I like how they hit my knees when I walk. I may end up with shins and knees as separate pieces.  I also got my PVC board.  Motivation to finish my cardboard designs engaged.

Hey all is an armored skirt acceptable?

I am thinking about something like this.  The 'skirt' would attack to my sash.

An armored loin cloth and kama should be fine :)

I got all my pieces for the front of the armor and shoulders traced and rough cut.  I started with the sand paper today.

Thanks for the encouragement.

Also update:

I got all the pieces sanded and I cut out my hand plates.




I am starting to think about what my paint job is going to look like.  I am currently leaning toward this one for the chest plate. 


And finally a question...can I have a segmented back plate or do I just need to do either a solid one or spaced plates?

You can have segmented, a solid piece, or pieces that are separated (just make sure the spacing is the same as your front plates). Totally up to you!
