Still only in the planning. . . WIP
« on: Feb 10, 2012, 12:10 AM »
OK,

Figured I would start up a planning WIP, so as to get more input and also get things going more.

I (obviously) want to do Legacy plates.  I have a bit of an issue in that I am not sure whether to do shins or not, seeing as I will be using a pair of knee-high boots and I think the addition of shins may look a little redundant.  Here are pics of the boots, front and side while on me.




And here are a few concept drawings of what I'm thinking more in general.

First, my take on a flak vest/kama/loincloth. Yes, it is basically a medieval tabard. The shoulders will be strapped to it.


Next an idea of the armor front view. Legacy plates with the more form fitted shoulders. Ignore the colors in the pics, they are just there to show the pattern I am wanting, and there is no cod in the pic because, as per CRLs, I believe the Loincloth negates need of it.  May add it anyway for the authenticity but at this time I'm just thinking simpler = less plates.


Next a back view. Again colors just show the color pattern, not true colors

Sorry about the sideways shot

finally, a more specific idea of what I'm thinking for the gauntlets. I Like the smooth hard gaunts rather than the weapon platform Boba style gaunts, but I did add a second plate to come back and cover my elbow. The two would be riveted to each other, much like the front plates are supposed to be. Also, I realized that the hand it 90 degrees from the angle it should be, it should be palm down for that side view to show.


I have acquired silver coveralls for the flight suit and already had a fairly nice looking blue material that I am going to use for a vest.  I also have a pair of gloves which are black, that I don't use for anything else so they are going to be used for this.  Plate colors that I am planning are (where the plates were white) Midnight blue and (where the plates are colored red) forest green.  I am also planning to add a red cape and trim the vest to match.

Nice boots!  8) Also I like your color scheme, quite interesting.
You can go without the shins but if you have thighs with no shins it would look really unbalanced, legacy chest and all. You could do small/short shins and that would help balance it out nicely.  ;)
