Ok. Gonna go down the green route. I'm gonna tweak the design when I get home tonight. Might use a ghillie net as my cape, similar to below. Will change the flight suit to olive green. Brown vest, forest green plates and then see how that looks.

Either or , I'm open to suggestions on that. I'd be doing a back plate either way.

Also toying with an arctic theme, some one suggested on my IG account.

If your doing a back plate, have a side/ half cape, more Boba Fett and doesn't cover paintwork you'll be putting time and effort into for the back plate ;)

That's what I was thinking. Camp netting suitable/approved? Or is it to earthly?

As far as I'm aware its fine, not see anything that says generic camo net can't be used, only camo patterns used currently

Quote
7.No "modern" or "common" off the shelf camo patterns may be used.  Camo patterns allowed must be uncommon, vintage, or in-universe and will be highly scrutinized during the application process.  Officially barred "off the shelf" camo patterns:  Woodland, Tiger Stripe, 3 Color Desert, MARPAT, Real Tree, Mossy Oak, ACU, Urban, 6 Color Desert, Swiss Alpineflague, and MultiCam

Cheers for that. Knew about the camo. Just wasn't sure about the netting. Will do two more concepts tonight and get opinions.

Netting can look too earthy. So to fix that add some fax leaves or something and maybe spray some brown paint onto it as well, just a few tweaks to remove the earthyness.

Obligatory post so I get updates from your thread ;)

Also, an utterly belated reply to the early comment of no white kits in the UK. Hal Jasra is Arctic Sniper and Jaxx Jasra is mainly white with black and purple highlights, and I think Tal Skirata is heading for white and orange. :P On the other hand I don't think there are any lighter greens, got a couple using darker greens, but none in the lighter spectrum.

Oh I'm sorry, shall I reitterate, there are no official members with main white and a sheb load of up and coming.

Gren looked better anyway imo ;D

Have no fear. Working on green and a white concept ;) May even combine both...

Its the classic 1/2 inch off the sides, somehow its the same for most  :-\

Can I assume it's 1/2 in of all plates? Belly and shoulder/neck??

To be entirely honest with you, I would take the collar template, cut it in half and take the inch from the middle. Take it from the edges and you'll end up with these tiny thin shoulder bits.

You'll also want to slim down the rest of the plates to match the collar. Again, don't be afraid to take off the inside and the outside so that you don't end up with extra thin prongs on the outside.

Hmmm, 10th and final concept. I must decide or I could be at this forever.

Torn between this new one, and the White Concept and Green concept in the previous post. Whittled it down to those 3.

I still like the orange. You just don't see it often and it really feels very "rebel pilot".

You can set up a poll at the top of the thread.  Look at the right of the screen, above the thread boxes there are a few rectangular buttons with things like "Add Bookmark" or "Add Poll" ect.  Click the add poll button and fill out what it asks for.  Then let er rip.

Knew how to do it, used to be and admin on a forum. Just wasn't sure if I was allowed to in this thread or if I had to create a new thread.

EDIT: Poll added

Option 1: Rebel Pilot


Option 2: Black and Orange


Option 3: White and Blue


Option 4: Combat Green


Option 5: Grey and Red


EDIT 2: First attempt at battle damage. This is a false primer layer so far. Got main colour and detail colour to add. This is just a test plate I am working on not a final build.

Just bumping this to get more votes if possible.

Also after opinions on the battle damaged plate. This is a test plate so testing weathering techniques. So all damage may not be consistent

That damage is really well done,  it's no too much, and it doesn't look like you spend all day on the FOB.
