Title: Working on something "vile" (WIP)
Post by: Zander Yurami on Feb 14, 2021, 02:41 PM
Long time no post!

My last armor build kinda....vanished, so I am starting a new one.

I am basing this build off a mock up I did like.....14ish years ago.

Some of, if not most of, the design will change as I build.

So far, this is where I am at.

And here is a quick mock-up of the side profile

Did a rework of my 14 year old mock up.  Used a mondo creator I found on th forums.

I wanted some thoughts on a few things.

I am having trouble picking between these 2 gloves.  I will have a hand plate that goes over the top of the back of the hand, so any logos will be covered.

Also thinking about using these boots;

with these spats;

I could then attack my shin armor over them.

Those spats look great, where'd you find them?

I somehow ran out of paint......during a blizzard.

Could be a bit before any more updates,

Started on the armor.  Got the chest and gut plates printed, bondoed, and sanded, but can't use filler primer till the snow melts off.

Got some hammered silver onto the parts. 

Waiting on my wrist parts to finish up to see if I need to resize them to fit my beefy forearms.  (lesson learned from my pipboys)

Great job. Is the chest plate the "hammered silver" you were talking about? I really like that effect and would like to use it on my first build. would you mind sharing how you did that?

How thick is your armor?

How thick is your armor?

About 10mm with the lip around it.  At this point, I am debating on cutting the lip off.

Yes it is.
