Alex Fett's Armor!
« on: Oct 15, 2014, 04:32 PM »
So i decided to go lazy in the spring and bought all my amor pre-formed but needed it done quickly for comic-con with family so I just painted it. I'm gonna upload pics of previouse and then begin the new forming and sizing through out the winter.

Here it is all laid out on my old vest (I made a new much better vest)















This was my paint scheme, though I altered it a bit.



Then I painted a base hammered silver.







Heres the black and weathering process







Here's one of my weapons that I probably won't use.... but thought why not...











That was version one. Heres version two! (check my bio for a link to the helmet's.)

So, same piece's I just reshaped like half of them, sanded and repainted them, I'm currently working on attaching snaps to my vest and flightsuit for new attachment.

Back plate: after some advice from everyone, I tried to trim and mold it differently let me know how I did!



kidney or "butt" plate


I used the same black and silver paint as above but here's the new blue I used.


Now from the bottom up. boot spats!


Then shins



Knees.. So I'm worried about these, I need the most feedback on the new ones I made. thanks!



Thighs.


Cod piece, I made a brand new with the templates off the Dented Helmet.


So here it all is!!


Now onto the chest armor.
Abdomen is first.


Chest plates, I have a decal on each. One is the image for my local clans tag(right), the other is a homemade one me and my dad made up.(left)


I also reformed the collar. Thoughts?


I left the shoulders black and red because of the decals, hopefully it doesn't stand out in a bad way. Well here it all is!

(with helmet)



Thanks everybody!!!! Leave me any comments, suggestions ect. Thanks again for looking and reading!

Bad news vod.  Your plates look like Schubiwon plates, which are barred from use due to poor quality :(

I thought if people fixed the schubiwan armor it was okay to use?  I bet I'm probably wrong though :(

Did you buy them on ebay Alex?

Yes but not from Schubiwon as I just said I saw that and avoided their plates on purpose.

I'm 100% sure that those are in fact Schubiwon. You may not have bought them from the guy himself, but they were at one time made by him. Someone else probably figured out they didn't work. The shape of the plates (specifically the collar) isn't like anything else. He made his own templates. See attached...

If the plates are properly trimmed and shaped, the knees and cod replaced, the leg plates trimmed and altered...  Yeah, you could do it.  You'll have your work cut out for you, but it's possible.
