Weathering is definitely happening before I app.

As for the shoulders, none. Each shoulders is attached to the other via elastic so it move with my arm. I also don't have the vest wings so I have more movement range.

Started to weather the armour today. Looking for the just got off the battlefield look.







Also trying to embrace the "Let the armour tell the story" So most the the weathering is directed from one side to the other getting less and less as you go across the body. Need to add some carbon scoring to it tomorrow and a brown wash or two to add some needed grime.

Looking great, loving the black and gold, especially on the shoulders.

Not too shabby! The weathering really sells the heavy assault look.

Thank you. Need to add some proper carbon scoring, though I don't know a good method. I want to avoid clear coating because I like the armour rubbing and chipping paint.

Also, pre app/app shots have been taken, just waiting on them to be emailed to me so I can post them here (only thing I am concerned about is chest placement may be off)

I've heard that using charcoal dust is a good way, but I have had zero experience in using it.
I used a flat black acrylic paint,  and dry brushed it in.

I should...

Let me dig one up for you.

Hard to tell, but I also have a bit of gold around the edges of the blaster marks.

Looking good! For your carbon scoring I used crushed black pastels brushed on. Then matt clear coat over the top. Just a suggestion with your boots add some boot armor as it will help tie the boots and the rest of the kit together and make them look less earthie. Torso plates Need  a tweak to straitened  up. But overall looks so good I'm jealous!

Boot armour is one of the upgrades planned after approval. It's required for heavy assault and I am planning a dual brigade heavy weapons/heavy assault.

Very nice! The only thing that stands out to me other than what Josh mentioned is that your left thigh is overlapping your shknee, or very nearly so. Looks like it's sitting a little lower than the right thigh, so that's probably the issue.

Yeah, will get that sorted.

Also had someone say one of the shoulders look a bit flat and it could do with weathering. And the Cape could do with a bit more work.
