Vassk's 2nd armor
« on: Nov 04, 2015, 07:53 AM »
After 2 years it's finally time to retire my old kit and start making a new one.
It'll be rather heavy armor, I was thinking of 2 color schemes:

or

Still not sure which one is better, but probably I'll change my mind at least 5 times and end up doing completely different paint scheme  :laugh:
I started with making belt and all that leather stuff, after 2 weeks I got this:

It's my 1st attempt at leather working so I'm pretty proud of how it turned out. It's still not ready ofcourse, I have to sew some pieces of leather together & make holster. Also I'll probably dye it to darker brown.
Comments & criticism are always welcome :)

Nice leatherwork! That's something I gotta get into one of these days.

As for color scheme, I kinda like the second one ;D

Thanks Kavryn :)
Started my new helmet a while ago, here's the result of several weeks of work:




The dome was sculpted in clay & the rest of the helmet was made with 3 mm sintra.
It's all very rough, also dome needs some reshaping, but other than that I'm quite happy with the results so far.

Belt/harness looks awesome. I vote for color scheme 1.

Really digging the boxed out cheeks, like the look better then the rounded style.

Vor'e Oren  ;)  I wanted to create something between standard Boba and assassin/destroyer buckets + I feel like that kind of cheeks gives helmet more agressive & intimidating look.

I've always liked a sharper look, I have to agree it looks more agressive.

Ahh!  Square cheeks!  Be still, my beating heart! :D

I've always been a fan, and yes, they do make the helmet look so, so much meaner.  Keep up the good work, vod!

Finally I managed to make some progress with my new bucket.
Ears, rangefinder & back panel are done so everything is ready for bondo now.
I taped ears to bucket to see how it looks and took a few pics of it:
