My girlfriend has large shoulders like that and she left them up like that to cover the gap between the back and collar plate. Just a thought.

Hmm, never thought of that. Do you think it would be okay if the collar plate (which is being remade) and the shoulders over lap a little? I

Don't see why not. There are certain styles where they have to even for guys armor. That I've seen approved numerous times. An overlap like that just needs to look intentional. Like how you had it sitting high up the shoulder. If it just barely overlapped or was right next to it I don't think it would fly. Your placement looked fine though. Why are you remaking the collar?.

I don't think that one fits my body the best. Plus, I think it'll need to be talle in order to follow the thumbs width apart rule. I was told to bring it up and if I do that I have a two inch gap between the bottom of the collar and the top of the chest. I traced out a new collar design on some paper, I'm hoping to get a picture up tonight to see what everyone thinks.

I actually kind of like the shoulders overlapping the collar part. (assuming you can cut it down to fit your shoulder) But maybe I'm just used to medieval armor. lol

Instead of completely redoing your collar, have you considered adding a plate to fill the space between the collar and chest plates?  I know you said your current collar doesn't fit the best but you could reshape it with a heatgun.  Also, I like the look of the overlapping shoulder   :D

Yeah I have thought about that... The double collar is looking more and more appealing lol and I think I might try to trim it down before I make a new one. Might as well give it ago!

And you know, I'm thinking I like the over lapping too now that I'm looking it all over, I think if I trim the collar down it'll look pretty cool :)

Got some major work done! I trimmed the collar and back plate. Those will need to be re shaped so I don't have any pictures of those just yet

But I did the base paint and the main layer of paint:



Some of the silver base got a little runny so that'll have to be sanded down and fixed but overall, pretty excited :) I put some Vaseline in spots for the weathering later, I'm going for a more subtle look with damage and such

Thank you so much everyone! Progress will be slow this week since I'm out of town but when I get back expect more! :)

I plan on black/brown washing everything to dirty it up a it and making it less bright, but I'm going for minor weathering similar to Jango's. So I hear acrylic paint works best for this, but does anyone know of a thread or video that has a little explanation? Or can help me with it? I think I understand but I just might need a little direction with it lol

I'd say take some silver enamel and drybrush the edges and any raised parts, then take brown and black acrylic and mix it with a little water and dab a paper towel in it and whip it around on the the plate. rub off excess with a wet paper towel and layer how you want. I'd say do the brown first then black for the look you want.

It looks cool so far! I can't wait to see the back/brown wash and how that comes out. It should look amazing.
