Greetings ner vode! I apologize for not posting in a while, but it's time for another upgrade update!

I just got approved for the Desert ops brigade & wanted to share the current state of my kit with you all. Below is a pic from our recent clan BBQ/Photoshoot (pic credit: Tony Julius)



The hose coming from the helmet is a camelbak drink tube which connects to a water bottle on my back that is part of my Desert Ops Survival Pack. It allows me to get a drink without the need to remove my bucket...below is a pic of my helmet with the canister & hose connected as well as a pic of the inside so you can see where the camelbak mouth piece sits (Yes, I can reach the mouthpiece so I can drink without removing my bucket ;))




& here is a pic of the pack...Shotgun, Beskad & Canister are included in the package & I LOVE the way it came out



I am VERY happy with the way my kit is looking now & I am getting closer & closer to my final vision for this stage in evolution of my kit!

I still have a couple things left to do to reach the end of my kit's current evolution, list below:
- new bandolier
- new holsters on gunbelt for my RC pistols
- new comm gauntlet

The goal is to have everything done for Celebration in a couple months & i'm on a good path to do so! Enjoy & as always, critiques & comments welcome!

Thanx for looking!

Thanx for the compliment Takisir & feel free to borrow away...that's why I posted it!

In case you're wondering, it's a camelbak hydrolink quick connect that attaches the hose to my helmet & the drinking tube is an off brand product that has a universal screw-top lid that can work with most standard water bottles...which is what the canister is.

Re: Naasad Tal's WIP - 19 August 15 - new upgrades & opinions needed

Ok first & foremost, I appologize for not updating sooner, I have been busy with ALOT of other thigns & rela life gets in the way from time to time...without further adieu, away we go...

So recently I've had this idea about giving my mando a little more "post-apocalyptic" feel than it already has (most recent pic below...PCC 2015)



I've come up with a new poncho type covering that has alot of fabric around my neck, but what I'm having a hard time with is a gunbelt that looks post apocalyptic-y. Russiya came up with an AMAZING design that looks like something that someone lost in the Jundland Wastes would wear, but I don't want to completely rip off his idea, so using his design as a base & pulling from some inspiration that I always seem to come back to, I came up with this design...



My original idea did not have the chest strap/bandolier that it does now, due to the weight, I had to add that in order to keep my belt in place just above my hips, however, after seeing Russiya's belt, I REALLY wanted to get back to my original idea. This new design incorporates several belts (this idea was borrowed from Starkiller's training gear costume) with the widest sitting on top of all the others & hanging low on my left side. The widest belt would also have ALOT of the mauser pouches that have become so prevelent amongst the mercs. Sadly in my new design I had to abandon one of my main pistols, but I am trying to figure out a way to incorporate it back into the new design.

I have more upgrades in the works which include:
- New vest (should be in hand tomorrow thanx to Sidi Renn)
- New leg wraps
- Trauma plates
- New gauntlets (built from the ground up)
- I may also be redoing my survival pack

I would love your feedback on my new gunbelt design & also on my current plans for my kit.

I'll try to be better about updating...thanx for looking!!!

I'm liking the poncho thing I think if you do the larger neck pice with some sturdy leather to keep a nice shape and the drape of it with a thick weave of some sort it would turn out awesome

I'm liking the gunbelt idea. Desert designs should inspire a sort of gunslinger/Pancho Villa/Josey Wales kind of vibe.

Re: Naasad Tal's WIP - 31 Dec 2015 - New Cover
« Reply #283 on: Aug 20, 2015, 02:24 AM »
thanx vode, I'm still undecided on the new belt design, my biggest thing is that my belt is pretty heavy & I don't want to have an overly sophisticated way of keeping it up. right now my bandolier does that job very well, but with the new design, I'm afraid id constantly be fighting with it no matter how tight I make the belt

Re: Naasad Tal's WIP - 5 Sept 15 - Update time again!
« Reply #284 on: Sep 05, 2015, 04:48 PM »
First, progress on my current upgrades...got my vest in from Sidi Renn & started sewing the velcro on. right now its just the front plates, I still need to do the shoulders & the back.


I also got started on my new gauntlets...all thats left is to weaponize them  ;)


& now in keeping with the ever evolving look of Naasad Tal, I have drawn up what I think is the final version of the new covering Im going to be doing, I also drew in my trauma plates:


I plan to have a base layer that fully covers me front & back clear down to the knee, then I'm going to have a second layer in front that partially covers the base layer, then I will have an opening cut in the base layer for my new pack to go (pics of the new pack in a bit), I will also have 2 "tails" that hang down from my shoulders on either side of my pack on the back. The new cover is also going to have alot of fabricaround my neck which will double as a hood similar to this:


Now for the new pack, I am trying go for a more post apocalyptic look with my kit & I have always loved Leia's boushh costume (I already have the elctrostaff she carries), so I decided to once again turn to Boushh for inspiration & I am going to build a version of her pack seen below:


So that's where I'm at now...lemme know what you think

Thanx for looking!
