Title: Taakur Dala Has a Bone to Pick With an Early Crusader Build
Post by: Avior Braisa on Sep 15, 2021, 12:01 AM
Have any of you looked at your kit and gone "Nah" and then decided to go completely feral with it? That's where I find myself now. I was planning on building another modern kit, but this time with Clan Wren style plates, but then I realized that I'd much rather be the space equivalent of a warrior cave woman.  ;D

I plan to eventually work towards the beastmaster brigades with this kit, haven't decided which specialty yet.
I'm super excited to start this build. It's so different from the modern era kit I have and I look forward to the challenge!

All that's left is gauntlets and to adjust a few things and I think I'm about ready for pre-app. :)

Alrighty! I sent in my application on Halloween and got my fix list yesterday.
1. Need larger shoulders to balance out helmet size and to meet era specific CRL
2. Need to trim sides of chest plate because it is oversized
3. Must add an additional waist item
4. Must make a larger ab plate because it is small compared to my chest plate.

For my own peace of mind I am also going to weather the underside of my furs so that it isn't such a stark white if they happen to flip up accidentally.
Overall not a huge list of fixes and I'm confident that I can get this knocked out and sent back in by the end of the week.
