So I bought plates a couple years ago got them all ready but then life happened and got busy. Well I found them while cleaning out the closet and wanted to get back into it, well then had some issues locally I don't want to go into and it pushed me away from the whole thing and I got rid of the plates. Well after moving to a new home and having actual work space I decided to get back into it. Got some help from the local clan and here's what I've got.

Wife helping trace out templates






Didn't get many pics of my second day work on it cause it was raining and I was by my self but Here's what I got


Condensed notes
















Updates from this  Nov 06, 2017

So my daughter Kyra has high functioning autism, as well as some vascular issues and a rare neurological disorder. My wife and kyras Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/kyrasjourney2016/) could tell you more in details. But for kids with rare neurological disorders their ribbon color is a zebra stripe. Well Kyra loves the color purple so in honor of her my left shoulder bell was done as such.  I also plan on having her name put on it in Mando'a in the color Pink her second favorite color. 




got a lot done Nov 13, 2017,

got my kyber crystal trophy in place as well as secured with clear resin. (yes there is a backstory behind why it is where it is and how I got it) 


Plus i trimmed my back plate down to the new rebels style back plate and its primed just need to get some silver to do the base coat and as always buy lots and lots of blue lol.  as well as the smaller diamond for my blast shield painted. 


The weather and my health prevented me from getting done what I wanted to get done Dec 11, 2017 but still got a lot done.

Going from left to right on the picture

Got my combat kad cut out, sanded, guard glued on, primed and the tang coated with silver. More artistic plans for the blade. Made from 3 mm sites

Handle cut out and sanded. Also have filler peice cut out sanded and primed then coated with silver. Filler is 3mm sintra handle is deer antler given to me by my father in law.

Next is a double barrel blaster or missile launcher wip haven't figured out

After that is my gauntlet topper platform with hidden blade.

Hidden blade is secured in place with magnets and is made from 3mm Sinatra

After that is pvc gauntlets



Been a busy Dec 18, 2017 around the Clan Ordo Fortress.

Got the closure done for my datapad gauntlet and a few paint touch ups ready for primary.
Both sides of the Westars have had there sweetheart grips done.
And my combat knife is ready for the blade to be painted.
Plus a crazy idea I don't think is even gonna work. Fiberglass reinforced cardboard holsters (update did not work so starting over on holsters)
Also not pictured cause I'm waiting for the paint to dry but the blaster gauntlet is done too (Update had to start over didn't like the way it looked) .







Damn this Cold Weather, I havent been able to do anything on a side note the Gun/Ammo belt is slowly coming together.  still need to mount my sheild generator, and tool box and a few other pouches

Glad to have you back, vod. Your plates look great; I also really dig the death watch lower armor. Can't wait to see everything get shaped and primed.

Love me some deathwatch holsters for the pew pews, I recommend picking up some tinny screws to reinforce the holster!

Hey Vod...

Just a little feedback/suggestion... you should try and do bondo patch puddy on your gaunlets a bit more to fill in the holes and cracks, it will give it a much cleaner look. Keep plugging away, starting to come together.

Been a busy weekend around the Clan Ordo Fortress.

Got the closure done for my datapad gauntlet and a few paint touch ups ready for primary.
Both sides of the Westars have had there sweetheart grips done.
And my combat knife is ready for the blade to be painted.
Plus a crazy idea I don't think is even gonna work. Fiberglass reinforced cardboard holsters
Also not pictured cause I'm waiting for the paint to dry but the blaster gauntlet is done too.
