ANNOUNCEMENT: Deathwatch Grunt CRL
« on: Jul 26, 2015, 11:40 PM »
The Deathwatch Grunt CRL was updated to remove the parts about real world armor. There are no references to the Deathwatch characters in anything other than animated form so we will not be accepting canon applications with "real world" armor. As always, anyone is free to create a custom Deathwatch costume.

So canon is only if you have licensed LFL imagery to back it up......... thought that was what it was to be canon anyway?
also what is Real world armor in this context?
weathered differently to DW animated or something?

That's the exact reason why we decided to do away with the real world wording. Real world armor allowed for Jango/Boba style helmets and armor templates and yeah, it would have allowed for more "realistic" paint and weathering applications.

Thats the way I'm looking at it, nothing to do with actual real world armour being repurposed for things such as flak vests, but more gotta be death watch style plates and animated style weathering.

If there is one I would be interested too as the ones I've done so far was through just trying out weathering techniques I've been told by word of mouth or in person also looking very closely at every possible screen shot I could get my hands on to get the accuracy.
It was a love of labor, but the results were worth it . ;)

Others have done the costume too, so you could check out their threads too, maybe ask them
