thanks vode.  I know I've lost a lot of thread followers due to thread-chatter and long waits, but it is still chugging along in the background.  I got plenty of good "reviews" at CVI and that really helped motivate me to keep with it, but the time just isn't there right now to power through it and get it done.  Those pesky bills have to come first and one can not simply collect bounties without a set of armour so I'll have to pay the bills in the kitchen as always. ;)


and often gives the best results ;D 


this is my theory as well.   If I were interested in a half-hearted kit it could have been done months ago.  The extra income is more than what my previous deficit was; in other words I went from time-rich and money-poor to time-poor and money-.. well.. money-acceptable :P      So I am looking at sourcing out a few parts to get a purchased kit together and working on this one still as a project.  I'm looking at maybe combining the Zebra Industries Orbiter  with Ithica's McQuarrie Concept Fett chest and back plates for a late crusader application.  Throw in some abs, shoulders, knees and shins and that is a solid start for a very unique and killer-looking kit I think.

I still think the helmet was Uruk-hai inspired  :P  Great work on it so far - you're inspiring me to get back to work on my home-made helmet...after I finish up my current build!

Becca!! Welcome home!  The dimensional armour was a key aspect of my plan.  For one thing, it looks a lot more realistic than a 3mm plate laid flat; for another, it hopefully helps hide a wee bit of my pudge :P

boom:  It wasn't on my mind when I designed it but hey. if it inspires you then by all means picture it on an orc :P  My initial concept was Demagol with mandibles and a vader skirt and it went from there.  Thanks for reading!!

ah yes, of course. not to mention the moisture and humidity being a bith to work in when 'glassing or painting. messes up curing time >.<

and nowhere indoors to work so I get the 9th floor balcony or bust.  cold, windy, wet, misting leaving spots on anything I paint... we were just looking at new paint today at the art shop.   Zophar isn't dead, he just hibernates in the winter :-P

Pffffft, I've lived in NB, and been to Vancouver in the winter, stop whining about the cold you two(though I can sympathize with the humidity complaints, Albertans don't take that well, or me and my aliit don't anyway).

I've lived in Denver and up in Alaska, comfortable for you and me is not necessarily good for laying and curing fiberglass...

Alright, I know most of you have given up on me, but I broke out the gear and scraped off the inches of dust and got back to work this weekend.   Life is more or less as normal as it is going to get and I'm itching to get some projects off my table.   Time for this bucket to meet its maker.  or this maker to meet its bucket... or something...

Assuming my resin hasn't died a slow, painful death over the last [holy crap has it been a year!??!!] I'll be posting progress pretty regularly now.
