Speaking of weathering, don't have many pictures, but i did a bit lf extreme soft part weathering to my ammo belt and pouches last night. Still needs to have some more of my wash applied, and need to do my boots, but it's progress.

Getting set up



Belt weathered


Over did it a bit on my grenade pouch and wore out some of the stitching. I fixed it by hand stitching the seam stuff to add to the look that it was field repaired, but i don't have a picture of that yet.

Allso don't have pictures of my ammo pouches, but i gave them the same treatment. Left my canteen case alone because it is pretty worn looking already.

Looking good. If you have everything else weathered like this you're in great shape.

And approved! With suggestion to adjust cod or flightsuit so it isn't visible below cod. Instead of either, i'm going to be making a whole new segmented cod as one of my first upgrades:

Yes. Good plan. Segmented cod is easiest thing to sit down in. Works better than my armoured loincloth which surprised me.

Segmented could work. Mine is a cod attached to a sintra belt by fabric so it can move. Just an idea.

Upgrades at last!

Made a new cod, so my suggestion from app is finally addressed (also, this cod is way more comfortable). Made new pauldrons (so I look a bit beefier), made arm wraps, and upgraded to better gloves. And I converted my gauntlets to clamshells

More updates! This time, new pouches (courtesy of Dresdon)


Started by painting them white and beating them up to look like salvaged Clone pouches


Then masked them and painted yellow (decided to mix it up a little and not paint them all the exact same)


Then it was time for green. Man, those 2 that are yellow with green accent are bright...


(Apparently I forgot to take pics of the weathering progress). Because of the size of the larger 2, I decided to put them on thigh straps instead of my belt. While I was at it, I had some Cryoban grenades I have been wanting to add, so I made my right thigh strap double as a bandolier for three of those. I used some wide woven belt I found at Joann's with 1" wide cloth strapping over the top, and used metal parachute buckles I found at Joann's as the closure.


Finished product, with belt pouches on my belt (I forgot to put on one of the cloth pouches, next to the canteen. It is on now)


First troop with them all. Thigh straps kept sliding down so I will be adding straps to tie them to my ammo belt. The left thigh strap I was already planning on  doubling as a leg strap for the mare's leg holster that will eventually be there so no big deal.

In addition, I have also started templating out a scratch built Glie-44 blaster, and working on new boot/leg wraps (to go with new, more comfortable combat-style boots)
