Darman's Late Crusader Thread
« on: Jun 19, 2010, 07:58 PM »
ok ive decided to start a Late Crusader build as ive got most of the bits done, i havent made up a character for him yet and im unsure of a colour scheme, maybe my vode can help me out?  :rolleyes:

anyway, heres some pics:

Concept Drawing:


Helmet:


Jetpack WIP:


Gloves and Gauntlets:


Belt:


Shin Armour:


Weapons ill use ( shall i use the very top one with the pistol or the second one down with the pistol?):


Boots and spats:


Ill be using the same flightsuit and neckseal as on my other set and i still need to make the cod piece and knees, the knees will look like Rohlan Dyre's, but what do you guys think?

you should use your old white and green paint apps. that really looked sharp.

looking good so far, nice little plan. always liked crusader-era stuff, it's pretty awesome. much less regimented.

what'd ya make the gaunts/shins out of? looks proper thick O_O

also, your backpack's got jets. nice work on that so far, love jetpack scratchbuilds. might do one if i can get out of this near-fatal bout of laziness i've been suffering from for the past, say, 10 years.

thanks guys, the shins and gaunts are made of 5mm sintra, only stuff i have,ill need to reshape the gaunts a bit, i think ill name this character with my old name, Hettyc A'den ^^ , still unsure of a colour scheme though, only possibility i have is my old white and green scheme

I have some ideas for a colour scheme, one is the colour scheme of my SL (yes i play it, dont care what you say :P ) Clan, called Kata, the Clan's Alor, would like me to use her scheme if i were to do the Kata scheme, what do you guys think?

Hope so, i dont have as much money as with the other set lol, depending on the chosen colour scheme, im thinking of using the short red cape i used on an earlier Dar version, but will that be wierd since ill have a jetpack? the jetpack is a bit small so i was thinking of something with the jetpack so the back doesnt look as "empty"

The bucket is ComMando bucket from Ick'tan, and most people recommend that bucket for this build

Yep. I've got an old leather coat that's too big for me lying around here...I'm thinking the sleeves, with a few mods, would make some great spats for my new kit (I used some like that before, for my pirate costume boots, and they worked great).... ;)
