CONCEPT Deathwatch WIP
« on: Mar 22, 2021, 02:35 AM »
Hey everyone, I figure its time to start a WIP for my new kit. I've made a good amount of progress already towards its completion.

Keep in mind this is NOT a canon kit. It is going to be based on the concept art for The Mandalorian.

Absolutely stunning. And having seen it in person today, I can tell everyone looking that the pictures donít do it justice. The colors and the weathering are perfection.

Added the eyes to my bucket to complete the concept look.

Also added the lights under the chest plate.





My grey under gloves have been ordered and should be to me by friday.



I will be darkening the vest with some weathering.

Productive day today.
Made new collar plates to more closely resemble the concept art.

Then started painting the gauntlets and knees.

I will need to sand and fill a few spots as a few print lines began to surface.



Also ordered some black gaiters for my boots



The gold buttons will be removed of course.

Did a trial run of the upper half and decided the vest did not fit into the concept color scheme. As I previously mentioned it needed to be recolored.



Dyed my vest for a better match.


Still working on my gauntles
But they feel good while on.


Painted the base colors on my knees and added the concept "V" markings.



Still need to finish my darts.

Everything needs some weathering. But I am enjoying this build!

So far making good progress.

Thank you very much. I am going to try another fitting to nail down the finer details.

Managed a brief suit up a few days ago.



Also mounted my backplate with help courtesy of my wife and dress form.

The chestplate has been moved to sit in line with my vest and the shoulders extended to allow for the vest to sit lower (and more comfortably) on my torso.



Here is the before and after the position change of the torso
