New armor pieces
« on: Jul 21, 2013, 11:08 PM »


Hello Everyone. My name is Jamal. Both my clan leader and clan members now me as such, but I do also go by "Ba'kuri." I am new to posting a post, but not to the forms themselves. I plan to become an official mando merc and  to appropriately label myself as one with the "Nasst Clan."

Glad you found your way here. Photobucket is free and easy to use. Share your work with the world, heh.

This is the test Gauntlet or Alpha I was working with previously. It really helped me before I started heating the plastic pieces to it's shape as seen.

The same goes for both the shin and boot armor. I used the large jango templates off of The Dented Helmet.com

Not too shabby. What are you using as a base for the gaunts? I've found large cups, or a big PVC pipe cut down the middle are great bases for gaunts. Shins are off to a good start too

Oh I'm actually using trash bins for the base. I figured, since i didn't have any sintra, it would be just as easy to heat and mold. The paint bonded to the sanded surface as well.

Oooooooo... SWG gauntlets... Didn't even realize that's what they were. Which templates are you working off of?

Sweet. Those shins look pretty sharp. foot plates looks like they need a little smoothing though. How are you closing the gaunts? I like the design!
