I like the skull motif, I'd just be worried about the whole "Gruesome" rule (as that helmet does look very realistically skull-like at this point. If you re-paint it may not though).

Will you be evening-out the lumpy dome (that all ComMandos tend to share)? Or will you keep it to go with the skull design?

Keep up the good work vod!

-Kane


Thank you my good sir! and welcome back!

How goes your build? Especially that design for the force field gauntlet? My gaunt is looking pretty snazzy, I think.

As for the ComMando, I think I may leave the dome as is. I'm going to have a stylized Mythosaur skull surrounding the helmet shape, using the visor as its face, and the mandibles as the mytho tusks. As far as coloring, an Ebony base, with a Ruby skull, and gold vents will give it a nice color scheme. I thought of evening the dome out, but I don't have much confidence in my bondoing skills. As you can see, I'm between sandings as far as the vents and it still seems so obvious, it's the first thing everyone has commented on, DESPITE MY MENTIONING IT IN EVERY POST I INCLUDE WITH PICS of my updates.

So, once I heal from my recent back injury, and can get back to work, I'll get back to the fine details, and throw on another primer coat. Oh, ordered a black visor from Bikerchick.

Keep you guys posted...

Putting off the gaunt for now until I can source the plexi :( but I'll keep ya posted ;) I actually haven't seen yours (link?)

Yeah, I noticed the unnecessary onslaught :P

Sorry to hear that vod! What happened if you don't mind my asking? Hope you get better soon! Tell me how the visor works out, I've been needing one myself and Biker's look pretty good.

Muscle strain while working unloading shipments over a long period of time. Got progressively worse until I actually pulled a muscle. I'm back to work and on workman's comp but I'm on very limited duty. Anyone who knows how busy I like to keep knows how torturous that is. But i just found out i scored wicked high on my employee evaluation, so good things to come!

The dome appears to still be a little warped and the right mandible looks like it could use a bit of trimming.
That having been said, you're definitely on the right track and have made some significant improvements.
Keep up the good work and you'll. Be there in no time (but remember to take your time). :)

Since I don't have a heatgun, I'm trying my best to handle the warpage with a hairdryer on  high heat. I'm trying to take it nice and slow. Any recommendations besides what I've already done.?

As far as the warping is concerned, i think bondo would be your best bet. It will be tedious but your payoff would be a lovely com bucket.
As far as the trimming, it could just be the angle, but if it is not, it reall stands out and should be taken care of.
I think your vents are coming along and if you like them and the app team likes them then great.
I don't know if a blow dryer will cut it but I've never tried it before.
Like i said, bondo.
Keep it up. :)

I don't think the mytho skull would be gruesome. A lot of mercs have it. I look forward to seeing this done.

On one hand, I still think the vents a re a little to un-uniform. However the hole thing looks like it's had some wear and tear from battle, so it doesn't bug me too much. Very unique vod. I like unique.

Visor installed (What a pain! I used Chicago Screws mounted to the inside using Steel epoxy, and a very tiny flat head screwdriver as there was little room for error)


Also added a bit from an old fragment of a Gillette Pro glide Razor, as well as some epoxy to the bottom as the helmet's chin. Gives it more of the cybernetic/ breather apparatus look I want.
