WIP - Buzzkill Legacy (Privateer aimed)
« on: Jan 20, 2018, 12:56 AM »
So for my third official kit I'm building a Medium Legacy aimed at the privateer brigade.

I'm already a good way into this build and I'm finally getting around to making a WIP thread for it so this will just be a mass picture dump with info from when I started certain parts of this project back in October.

First off, here is the legacy plate progress. (Shoulder armor still being worked on, just not fully shown)

Cut

Shaped



Next are some of the accessories.

Going with a custom sawn off breaching shotgun I'm dubbing the "Mutli Tool". As it utilizes different types of single shot shells it can switch between specialty rounds including but not limited to: Scattershot, High Explosive, Sabot round, Ion round, and smoke grenades. The paint isn't finished and theres some more greeblies to be added to it.




Here's some example of the shells the "Multi Tool" takes (High Explosive)


I found these boots at a local thrift store and felt they had a nice privateer/smuggler feel to them. They will get some shin armor to cover them.

This is the original helmet I had planned to use for this build (Custom scratch build helmet) but I may end up keeping it for a display unit and switch over to my hellraiser helmet.



This is a custom designed and 3D printed jetpack that I made (and designed) that I may be using for this kit, or may not.




Next is a piece that some of you may have seen floating around, and is really my prize of this whole build. Lots of time and work went into this. I present my Prosthetic style robotic arm build which I am dubbing the "Basilisk War Arm".




I'm planning on infilling the gaps with bits of conduit, wire and other greeblies, as well as some EL wire veins. This isn't how I plan to mount it, just an example.

Wow !

I love the idea with the different kind of shell and your robotic arm.

Looks really cool! I'd recommend grooves in the plates and putting the el-wire more snug in-between the plates. Just a suggestion, watching with interest  ;D

For sure! just had it rigged up at one point just for an example idea. Im still heavily playing around with the greeblies and details of the arm.

Today my Rub N Buff care package came in so I got to work on my arm, as well as attaching the armor to my gloves. I'm still missing a third armor plate on my index and ring finger which I'll get to eventually.


And here's some pictures of my hellraiser helmet with some modifications I'm planning on doing to it. custom ears, filling in the brow detail (not 100% decided on that yet) and additional armor plating along the bottom of the helmet on the bottom of the cheeks

It's hard to tell from the profile pic, but you might not need the 4th lame on your ab.  Can we see it from the front when you get a chance?  And this is a very intriguing build.  I'm looking forward to seeing more.

Here is a front profile. The Green tape shows where my navel is. I trimmed the last lame a bit with a radius to kind of pick it up a bit.
