Yay! Another beast hunter!

Having just been through the rigorous Beast Master brigade application myself I do want to just echo the need to weather your soft parts.

It was one of the biggest things they got me on.

Think about where you want your Mando to be doing the majority of their work and use those sorts of environmental cues to weather your jumpsuit accordingly.

I chose volcanic planets so I used whites, grays, and dark volcanic soil to weather my kit.

Keep up the good work! Can't wait to see more!

Thanks Valkyrie!  I did add some tan and green, itís just hard to see in the dark picks.  Iíll see if I can redo them tonight with better lighting.

Better lighting makes a lot of difference! I can see the weathering on the pants now for sure. Might add a tiny bit more to the sleeves tho.

Weathering is going to help differentiate all the pieces youíre wearing and really pop on all that  black on black youíve got going on.

Iíd recommend also trying to take some outside photos if you can as well :) I know mine looked way different indoors than out.

Keep up the good work

Great looking kit,
Could be the angle of the shot, but  in the Front picture, it looks like your ab plate is offset to the right making the spacing uneven

Progress update:

Feedback from my clan revealed I needed to sand the plates and re-space, then tighten the flight suit.  So naturally I made awesome progress on the edges and gave it a new paint scheme





Also made some thermal detonators

Man itís been almost a year since Iíve been able to work on my OM submission!  Im still stuck in Afghanistan until this whole corona thing is figured out...

Itís also worth mentioning that i went through 6 submissions before I left, and Iíve been kicking myself in the @$$ for not finishing!
