Update time!

Finally got a look at the bow from TRoS, and it has a greeb on the front "made from salvaged blaster parts."  So... First attempt.

I also got all my blades in one place!


No updates on the blasters and dets, ATM.

Speaking of blasters...


I did a bit more sanding to the dets, as well.

Can anyone point me in the direction of some patterns for holsters?  I'm having some difficulty with making a new leather one for the A180.

I haven't tried the hip holster but I do know that the WWII era shoulder holsters for the M1911 fit the A180 really well and can be had for around $35.

Can confirm, they will fit the A180 decently well. The only trouble is that most of the replicas have a big 'ol USA stamped into the leather (at least the ones I've found), so I ended up using one as a template and making my own slightly modified version...though that's also because I built my own A180s and the barrels are slightly thicker than the standard replicas.

I used a few bands of sintra to cover up the US. Gives it a more Swarzy look.

Been neglecting this thread for too long.

My latest loadout.  Still looking to go for Assassin in the Striker Brigade, and possibly cross-class into Pistoleer.

So, not much has changed.  Just busy with my Mk.III rebuild, and a full second build.

Once again, neglecting this thread.  It might need therapy, later in it's life... :laugh:

So, got my hands dirty at the last virtual AP, removed the giant "STAR WARS" from the side of my F-11d.

I also made a new leather holster for my A180.  It's a rough draft, going to refine it a bit, once I get more Chicago screws.

Can anyone suggest methods for adding slack to a compound bow's draw?  That's the main thing I need to apply for Assassin Brigade, while following the rules for a non-firing prop weapon.

Well, well... Didn’t think I’d update this, this fast, did ya?

Holster V.2:


Friction Fit, with a leather strap for extra security. All attachments are “antique” copper Chicago Screws, and I’m using a D-ring closure for the thigh strap.

If you flip the Chicago screw on the tab over, you won't have the screw head showing when kitted up (if that's an aesthetic your interested in)

Looking good!

I’m going to be flipping that over tonight.  Just doesn’t feel right with the head exposed.

I love the entire arsenal you! You definitely pack the heat, Straka! I'd hate to be on the dealing end of your blasters haha. Keep up the awesome work brother! One of the best!

Photo Dump!
Half of my arms shipment arrived, and I started work on them.
SE-14c:





SE-44c:





TMS VibroDagger:




Sanding and priming the knife and F/O blaster, the hand cannon needs some love before I start.

The bow build is on hold, while I try to get my Mk.III off the ground.  I might go for Pistoleer first, then go for Assassin.

One down, three to go...



Need to get some high grit paper, and some bottles of the enamels to fix some details, but this is just about ready to troop.
