Thanks! They were Boba plates instead of the Jangos. The sizing worked out better, plus the shape is more to my liking.
I am currently looking at my vest, in the talks with someone. As my needle skills are... Well zero. And I thought it would work out better to shape the plates to the vest they would be going on to.

I posted this in the equipment section I believe, but not really getting feedback.

Was just wondering what people might recommend for greeblies? Stuff that worked well for them, stuff to steer clear from. Stuff that just isnt a good idea?

Just stay clear of easily recognizable things. Other than that just keep an eye out for interesting shapes.

Alright, nothing major to report.
Was originally going to use a Death Watch bucket, modifying it to my needs. I drew it from a Boba Fett helmet.


But the more and more I looked at the NME Props Stalker... the more I fell in love with it. I love the sharp lines, the shape. So I redid my concept for the bucket, taking the Stalker and changing small things to make it my own.


And as you can see, I also spent more time drawing this one that's how much I like this bucket.

The part inside lower cheek is gone, going to fill and sand that. As well as the subtle raised bits to be sanded down.

And thanks, just loving the Stalked helmet. I think my wife might be jealous haha.

Just a small update. Took a side by side of my old concept with the new one. Now just waiting on my tax return so I can get the bucket, tough being patient.



And I grabbed some stuff while at work yesterday that might work for greeblies. Black pieces are replacement parts for a supplied air respirator. Silver parts are: threaded grease nipples, strapping eyes, wire guides for a welding machine, cutting torch parts, and a sanding drum for a die grinder. Going to have a peek again today, see what other goodies I can find.

I just threw this together as an idea for my dual gauntlet blaster, thoughts?

Seems like you have an interesting build starting. I noticed the gauntlet with the screen, I just built a similar one with an old phone if you want to check it out.

Nice. We are getting a new security pad installed this weekend. Going to see if I can do something with the old one.

Was toying with a "either this style or that one", but was actually thinking of using them both for the dual wrist blaster. Kinda like that they don't match, was actually toying with the idea of a mismatched armor pattern to begin with. Like the armor had been pieced together from different sets.

I like it. I would be lying if I said I wasn't a little jealous of your greeblies.

Extra parts liberated from my job, used welding nozzles, torch tips, spray nozzles for a paint gun, respirator parts, etc. Just anything I thought would look cool.

Just only figured out how to quote someone... I know, I know. But that aside, thanks. Going to heat treat the tips inserted into the barrel to give it that heated look.
