Xyyyr is BACK! Heavy melee specialist you say?
« on: May 03, 2016, 04:20 AM »
And Im BACK!!!

It's been a while since I have really started any new treads or projects. But do not despair! The original jawalorian is back! So what's coming up? Well... I will be making a samurai inspired modern armor melee specialist inspired with wolf packl colors and some sci fi and traditional inspirations.

So... Let's start with some inspiration pics eh?







So what have i got so far? Well, in a flurry of destruction and creation, I made most of the following plates in the pic all in one day (made from 3, 6 and 2mm sintra, ALL plates are bend already (the pic is already outdated ;P)



(As Im going for samurai style, the chest diamonds are for my arm plates! And will also follow my tradition of a chest diamond per troop! (keeping my title as teh chest diamond collector)

So I got even more! This includes: Guns (Already done), tomohawks (already done), lights in gauntlets with intergrated ellbow armor! And got a paint test ready!








So for helmet? i will go witha starbreaker helmet from Saz. I have loved that helmet since I first saw it, and seeing as it's a nice and heavy looking helmet, it will be perfect for my heavy melee mando!

So now... the most important part of the heavy melee kit... Heavy melee weapons! I will go for a glaive and a pike from the tatooine pig guards. (Don't worry, Ill carry one at a time)

Other details are still undecided, I will be adding alot of detail to this kit. And yes, this kit might meet the amount of armor my second super heavy kit had. But oh well, armor is fun!

Any ideas, comments or guestions? Comment away!

I love everything that you've done on this!  My only concern is that -while it may not have been intentional- the red looks a LOT like blood splatter against the white base coat...   ???

Dunno, vod.  It reads more like rust to me.  Could use a blackwash to hammer down the "old and worn" aesthetic, though.

I think with some close ups you'll have no trouble iddentifying the rust as the rust it's supposed to be. The  plates have been washed rather heavily tough, so the lightming might have been the problem with the pics
