Thank you everyone for your kind words and encouragement.

Blackdugal, thanks for the info...I really wanted a jetpack but I think it will affect my vertigo too much because of the weight distribution  :(.  Also I'm wanting to (eventually) go for brigades and do acquisition specialist....so need to keep it quite streamlined (I think ). Also to fit in with the echani character, they had really light armour. I am now wondering if I could attatch a fan to a melee weapon......




Unless you meant electric fans... but speaking of, helmet fans do not add much weight and keep the air moving.

Don't know if it's intentional or not; But the backplate plus shoulders give me an angel wing impression.  Love it!

Thanks Kitala.

Ion you and me both, I primered and silvered last night....tomorrow is painting day so fingers crossed!

Itolia....I was actually thinking electric, but now you have given me an awesome idea for a hand fan. I looked at lots of winged swarsy creatures, some of the colurs and shapes are magpie inspired.

I slowed down a bit over xmas as had the smalls, but a bit more progress. My gauntlet are soooooo cheesy 70's future tech it hurts. It was really hard to find something that worked as I'm trying to keep the AS BRL's in mind as I build.

Love the gauntlet toppers! Am I crazy or is the one gauntlet topped with a chunk from the top of the old Monogram kit of the 80s Galactica? That's what popped into my head as soons as I saw it. If so, well done!  Kitbashing is always a great way to add detailing. Looks brilliant!

Great progress so far! Looking real good!!

Thanks guys....I have no idea what one bit is, but the other is a milenum falcon landing ramp. Ive sanded them back a bit further too.

After the false primer and black (i've got quite complicated paint layering) I decided that I quite like them dark and sinister so have altered the colour scheme slightly as otherwise it was going to be colour overload. I'm hoping to get the detail on the gauntlets later but I have paint fumes hangover  :(

They look beautiful that simple with just those two colours. They are going to be a great addition to the rest of the paint scheme :)

I like it!

You're gonna wind up with helmet hair in that wig, though. Mando buckets are not kind to hair  :P

Wow that paint job looks good. I've said this before and I'll say it again, anyone working with Ashen is in good hands.

Thanks everyone  :D

I'm really proud of the fade paint scheme idea, originally I wanted it to be metallic, but those paints are a mahooooosive pain.

Ashen is great and his help and teaching has been appreciated....particularly re-learning how to spray, From running with a graffiti crew (artwork on wasteground, not writing names on peoples walls) my spraying muscle memory was all wrong for painting armour.

Learning the skills required for this build has been hard for me, but I'm a believer in learning so you have a skill set, to be able to do things again, rather than people doing things for you. (but not fibre-glassing, I think that may actually land me in hospital  :o )
