If you're adding bone/scale work to the helmet on a modern kit - try not to make it look like it is part of the helmet as that gives the impression that the helmet is all bone which is Early Crusader period. You want to make it appear to be a trophy added afterwards that is separate from the modern tech helmet - the same way the scales appear to be additions to your other plating that have been layered on afterwards.

Understood. the Helmet is going to be all blue and the scales are going to be the color shown in the varactyl photo. I am not filling in the side gaps on the helmet so you can see there is a distinction that is was glued on and not growing out of the helmet. Make sense? I will have some more photos up this weekend once the first layer of primer goes on.

Any other suggestions? Comments? I really would like my theme to work as I havent seen many like it.

Kris gives excellent advice, as always. You've made great progress since I've been away from the forums, and I hope to see more soon!

More progress is being made!!! Added in the visor, and test fitting all the time to trim and fix. I think I did pretty well on the visor barely any space between the visor and helmet. I havent taken any photos with the armor fitting a bit more properly yet, That will be coming in the next week or so.

Looks like the cod needs to be a good couple of inches taller to be properly sized and placed, and you'll need to cut down shin and thigh to fit in knees - or make it clear that the shins are actually shnees, but everything else is looking spot on.

SOOOOOOO After a long hiatus due to a ton of cons in the way. I am back at it with more progress. Decided to remove the fake scales and painted them instead. Here are the chest pieces for the new Varactyl design.

I came up with the design and color scheme, created the vinyls used to achieve the scales but the actual Spray paint was done by the Master Guru painter in my Clan Miguel (shev'la ram'ser) . I needed a steady hand in which I do not have lol.

That last Pic of your painted armor with the Varactyl scale motif is so stunning! It's going to be gorgeous all together!
