Good ideas.  I'm also getting LC armor from the Arsenal.  I guess he's reworking the molds so I'll have to wait until January.

My kit was recently approved so I went out and got some photos (14 photos) of my fully finished official kit; despite the weather.  Thank you to all that helped me get to this point especially Naran Baatar.  I'm excited to troop in this kit at our next event.

Update 1/5/2016: Today I got a decals for my truck and for my armour of the Late Crusader ring.  I adhered it to the left on my chest plate and then weathered it.



It needs a little bit of work with some actual dirt and grime from the garage, but I’ll wait until it warms up past 15 degrees before I venture out there.

That's outstanding.   Awesome work.  That temp is a bit brutal.

Ha, it hasn't gotten above 0 degrees F, this week.  Brutal could be worst.  -3 right now (no windchill factor).  The week before Christmas we had a windchill of -44 degrees F.  Before I moved up here to North Dakota I read that the temperature could be 180 degree difference from Summer to Winter weather.  Last year (2016) we hit a "feels like" of 123 degrees and then the -44 windchill a few weeks ago.  Paint doesn't work when it is that cold.   :D

No problem Vod, looking forward to you progress on your kit and glad I helped spark some ideas.  :)

I went to Walmart the other day to find an additional trophy for my kit.  I found these rubber dinosaurs and saw lots of potential with them.  The the head of one of them is on my kit as a fun thing for kids to see.  I’ll say it is the skull of one of the baby predators I hunted or something.



I thought of using the spine parts on this stegosaurus, but it didn’t fit my kit very well.  The back of Dimetrodon is what you see below.



It actually works quite well for a trophy from the planet Lok.  Not my ideal hunting planet covered in sulfur pools and orange dusty terrain; but a job is a job so I took it.  The species my buyer wanted was similar to the Krayt dragons of Tatoonie (another planet I’d like to avoid as there isn’t much green there).  Kimogila.



“This creature had no known predators on the planet, but had evolved to boast a layer of extremely resilient scales, capable of withstanding all but the strongest anti-personnel weapons. They were also known to have one of the most toxic venom in the galaxy, which could kill ambushed prey in seconds.” -Wookieepedia



“They were hard to find creatures, but they usually traveled in small family packs ranging from two to three, and could sometimes become extremely territorial.” -Wookieepedia



This was an exceptionally challenging target and well worth the hunt in my opinion.  You can see some of the rear spinal fins I scored from the buyer as a trophy from this magnificent beast.  I hang the fins on my belt along with a few other trophies from my various hunting expeditions.



I'll continue to update this WIP as I add more details to my kit.  I plan to keep an eye on the Late/Neo Crusader boards as there are some awesome kits out there.  I can't wait until winter is over, so I can get some photo shoots with some green backdrops.

Reviving my thread.  Are there any references to kamas in the Late Crusader time period?  Thinking about a leather one for more coverage with a Beasthunter build.

The only references for kamas are going to be the ones from the Old Republic MMO there are a few armor sets that have kamas, there isn't anything "different" about them from the standard kama and there is no issue with rocking out a leather kama with a crusader kit.

Awesome!  Thanks Naran.  It will be a slow build for now.  Building a house next year, so all funds are going towards that.  :)
