Late Crusader armor (Operation ID#14354QG2 Malus)
« on: Nov 03, 2009, 01:54 AM »
     I have already made  my armor but I was unhappy with certain aspects of it, mainly because I made it in 3 days. Originally I had wanted to do a Modern mando, but I went to Dcon this year and Novall had recommended that I make it into a Late Crusader instead. I decided to take that advise and I should finish it up in the next 2 weeks. I am now posting pics of my mando in its current state and later I will post the final pics.

These other three are the more modified versions of Malus (Battle Damage)

I think you made the best decision by doing a late-era.  Really, there isn't that much to change on your current costume except your helmet and the addition of some things.

Other than that I think this will turn out great!

Modern or Crusader, that's still a wicked set of armor you got either way!  Great job, especially for 3 days' work.  :o

Looking forward to the additions.

Two days? Wow.
Looks very cool for that. Scratch that, it looks cool either way.

Helmet:


S 5 AP 5  Rapid Fire 24 inches! WS 2 BS 3 T 3 LD 8 Sv 4+!

I like it :3 Is it going to be a yellowish tan? Are the Nilla Wafers delicious?


In seriousness, I like the adaptation, honestly I'm surprised I never though of blending Tau for Late crusader, as it has the same sort of helmet peak at Rolan Dyre's helmet.

Thanks, in all honesty I was thinking of taking off the rectangle thing. I decided against it because it could be a really cool adaptation of a range finder or com antenna.

I got it from a file online. It was a long time ago so I don't know where it is. When I am done with the pack and the helm, you wont be able to recognize them anymore.

Drak, check the Narc lounge, there is a link there to a 40k costuming forum.

Are you planning on raider-fying the tau helmet? spikes and the like?

DOUBLEPOST!

Anyways, Malus contacted me, and asked me to whip up a paint scheme based upon the concept art that Hydra did, and some discussions he and I have had about it.

The original lineart (before I ran it through Illustrator, edited and cleaned it up some) Is Hydra's, so credit where it's due (its also in the first post).

This is a crop of the chest section, as I've not finished with the rest yet. It's hi-res, so i can't image link it. you gotta click.

I think that I am not going to post anymore pictures of my armor. I like the surprise. I am still going to keep everyone updated. If you want to see the finished product. Go to CV or Dragoncon or Starfest. MWAHAHA

OK so most of the armour is made:
 ♣ helmet
 ♣pauldrons
 ♣left vambrace and elbow cop
 ♣chest
 ♣back
 ♣pack

All that I have to finish is:
♥Sabatons (feet)
♥Left and Right Greaves
♥Left and Right knees
♥Left and Right Cuisse (upper leg or thigh)
♥Rerebrace (upper arm or bicep)
♥Bevor (neck and chin)
♥Right Vambrace and elbow cop
♥Tassets
♥Power fists
♥Arm mounted Flamer
♥Arm mounted blaster
♥ War belt to cover lower back as well

I think thats it. I know it looks daunting but I have 5 or 6 weeks to finish it with spring break around the corner. I'm going to go work on the Greaves now. Oh yeah, I still have to paint everything.

Still working, taking a break from it though. Need to study for finals. After next week I will pick this up again. I don't have anything to do after that so it's just work for two weeks straight. Hopefully I can finish it be Phoenix comicon. Nearly done though. Thanks for asking.
