Good to hear you are back at it man! If you get approved in time I reckon you'd be in for a decent shot at the "Best Newbie" May the 4th award.

Haha thanks man! i dont know if i'll make the deadline or even stand a chance. But that would be cool!

Congrats on the stripes Condar! Lets see how long till i get my own.


So I finished my helmet, officially, decided to add a rangefinder and the plastic was a hassle to paint! Primer wouldnt even stick to it! But thats done.

Today im going outside and painting up my knees, finishing my cod and working on my gaunts that dried weird on me. I trimmed my backplate too now its just a question of forming this thing!

Hey Karvas,
Here's another suggestion for the darts... (I know, oh great, another one...  :rolleyes:)
Why don't you just use some long nails for the darts? you should be able to pick a few 4" 20D  nails up for a few cents each  at your local hardware store, or look for "duplex" or "double-head" nails, then use a Dremel to cut the tip off at an angle and paint 'em, you can flatten the bottom of the double head so they all line up without rolling so they all stay lined up and lookin' purdy!  ;D

Oh yeah, epic build vod! Lookin' GREAT!  ;)

Jaadet that's and awesome idea! I'll check at home depot when i make a trip to restock on supplies lol

Gaunts are done! So is the cod.
Just missing rocket and hoses
Pic is kind of dark but they ended up looking a lot like Boba's. Bad news is my rangefinder fell apart doing gotta find another way to stick it all together.

The keypad might need a bit more blackwash or accent some of the buttons maybe..gauntlets often look better once weathered if theres more than one coour on them.

That all looks great! I like to think that he cleans up the keypad after each mission to guarantee that the buttons work next time.  ;)

 And it's alright that the gauntlets might look like they belong to boba, as long as the rest of you doesn't.  :P

Thanks everyone. I might be getting pre-app pics up this weekend if I can sort out my back plate. There's still some small fixes on my helmet. Painting my knees, attaching everything cause liquid stitch was a rip off and of course the dreaded backplate.

Yeah, I figured if you're always poking at the keypad with gloved hands you'll manage to wipe of most of the dirt in that process.  I still want to add some details to the gaunts in a second color, maybe white to go along with the ear cap details on my helmet.

Andddd here's what I did to my bucket! Added kill stripes, still need to weather them. Don't know if I'll do designs and whatnot on the front, opinions?



OH and here's a new shot of the re-weathered helmet! Blackwashed the visor area abit more and brightened the silver!



And this brothers and sisters is how to weather a bucket!!!! So good!!!!
