Late Crusader - Ni Ori'Dush
« on: Mar 28, 2018, 11:39 AM »
Su cuy'gar Mando'ade!

I'm starting my first kit. So I wanna present you the advances, obviously supervised and with the aproval of my Ruus'Alor. I must also indicate that over the current assembly there are already changes that I am still making, however for lack of time I could not make the photos. Feel free for your opinion, vode!

This is my aproved concept


And the Helmet design


I started with the flight suit


And the plates design, cut and molding








After, came the pouches and belt sewing




The paint of the pieces...






And the assembly



The helmet was a very very hard work. First, I designed it from my old Executor Helmet patterns, fixing manually and redesigning what were necessary.







After came the hardened, sanding, and painting. However, still some changes remaining, sugested by my Ruus'Alor.











The actual assembly is this for now. I have done a extension for chest plate, and cutted a bit of the hand plate, shins, knees and boot plates, but these photos are not taken yet because I haven't time actually.




Finally the weapon: I started over a commercial toy, but I had disassambled, sanded, added greeblies and converted in a sniper rifle.






I installed a couple of energy cells, but the placement were not accurated. As you see in the assambly photo, the cells were moved to the side, and the sigth were moved to his initial placement.



That's all for now, I hope this hollidays I could post the final advances.

Kit is looking AWESOME Vod!
Great job on the plate design, the shaping, the paint, and the scratch built helmet!

These are the things that stand out to me that you might want to address before applying:
-Your flightsuit and arm wraps look a little clean when compared to the weathering on your plates and kama.
-The rivets on your armor need to be painted to match the kit
-I think it would look better if the straps attaching to the top of the front to the top of the back ended underneath the plates instead of on top of them. Right now ending on top they're giving off kind of an "overalls" vibe.
-I think you could use some more coverage in the collar area (between top of chest plates and neck).   -- I couldn't find any LC references that had much space between the armor and the neck.  If you have some, that would help too :)


Getting super close!

Thank you for your feedback. These are almost all the recommendations the Ruus'Alor and the Ver'Alor gave me and I'm actually working in. The rivets painting and the strips placement is anything I should do, thanks again, vod.

I didn't realize you had a thread here as well! Ha. Well, here's some more thoughts:

Great job modifying that rifle -- it looks amaaazzziinnnggg. Good use of the leather, and I'm in love with the torso plate designs (I'm such a sucker for anything Clone-like :laugh: ). The trauma plating looks great on the chest and abdomen.

Have you thought about doing some blackwash on the plates, per chance? If there is blackwash and I can't see it, ignore this. ;)

Something else you might consider is adding more greeblies or do-dads or switches to a few of the plates:

Crusader kits are usually covered in all kinds of random crap to get that rugged, lived-in tech look. Just something to think about. :)

I'm so happy to see another Crusader kit, and yours is great. Can't wait to see the updates you mentioned!

Morning vode! I'm almost ready with all the changes, well, there are all done but I forgot to take photos. However, acording to sugestions, I was making a vital support backpack. There are the advances.

I started with a pair of sport bottles and a old router, and some pvc from the beskar.






After, came the sanding and the painting.






And finally, the placement in back plate


Tonight I plan to place the hose and take a photo of the final ensamble. See you!

Your kit is looking very good. Sep covered the things I can see that need adjustment, and I can see you took Ordeyn's suggestion on blackwashing, which really does give it that nice crusadery lived-in quality. I love what you did with that pack, awesome job scrounging materials and bashing 'em together!

Thank you for all your feedback! The kit is actually in Pre App, so the next week I'll have notices for the fixlist.
Oya!

So, there's the photos taken for the pre-app

That is one slick looking set of armor. The only thing that stands out to me in these better lit pictures is that the boots are a noticeably lighter shade than the other 'soft' parts of the suit. If you haven't run across it before, you can actually get leather paint that works quite well and saves you dyeing effort; I recommend either darkening the boots to match the straps and pouches, or lightening the straps and pouches to match the boots. Not necessarily something that will get your application denied, but it's the little details that really tie the whole kit together in the long run. Regardless of that detail, the whole suit looks awesome.
