Trophy Of War: Nightsister Arm Guard from SWG
« on: Mar 08, 2016, 12:57 AM »
Had to take a break from working on my kit. Too many ideas and loss of direction, so I put it all down and started a little side project. I always loved the Nightsister Arm Guards from galaxies, and figured it could make a good trophy of sorts. So here we go.....


Broke it down to 3 pieces, and drew the pattern onto the sintra.


Molded the pieces. Attached with plasti-craft. Drew on the symbols the best I could..... the graphic they used is old as all hell and thus crap compared to other items in game.


Used a dremel to cut out the symbols, then painted it grey just to see how it all looks.


Dremel'd the symbols out some more, and used plasti-craft to build up the edges....


Since it looks like stone I started with a black base.


Gave it a coat with that crappy "stone texture" paint from Rustoleum, just for a good texture. Wasn't a fan of how smooth just the sintra and plasti-craft looked.


99% finished. Going to add a little more black & dark grey into the symbols to increase contrast.

Thoughts? It looks amazing! The only thing I could think of doing is a blackwash but it sounds like you intend to do that anyway.

Edit: actually, brownwash would look more natural on a stone-like surface.

Was debating between a brown or black wash, but I think I may go brown wash tonight ;-) Thanks for the input! Just put a base coat on the shins/knees of my kit, gonna probably get into that now.

First pass was way too heavy, so I had to go back over with some grey again and dull stuff down. Also took some of the brown and lightly went over the moss spots to dull them out a bit too.

Oh yeah and incase you didn't play galaxies and haven't seen one before, this is what it should look like. Since its an older graphic, I ended up having to play around a bit/fill stuff in. Also figured since Dathomir is basically a bog, it would have some moss spots on it.

Wow!

I'm seriously jealous of your skills here.  I wish I had the skills to make one of these.  Not for myself, but for a friend I actually met through SWG who always wore one of these on her character (and even has replicas in other games such as Second Life).  If I get to a point where I feel comfortable enough to attempt it, do you mind if I take inspiration from your process?

Not at all! Please do! Im having a friend help me make some downloadable templates for them and a few other side props? from the game. (That game CONSUMED close to 3 years of my life..... So I draw lots of inspiration from it haha) Whenever I do get templates made up I'll be sure to post em up!

I decided to make my own set of Mandalorian armor because I could never wear it in SWG, Stupid Ithorian armor restrictions....

Now why couldn't Ithorians wear Mando armor?  They already have a T-shaped HEAD! :P

I don't know if you're interested but you could get some of the little fake "bushes" the use for miniature towns, hit it with a little crayola green paint and it looks like real moss.
