Dash Gnar WIP, Now OM with Endless Upgrades Planned
« on: Aug 10, 2015, 01:29 AM »
Hey everyone,

I figured I'd post a WIP here to help show where my progress is at, and also maybe stir  up some more engagement in our section of the site.

Unfortunately, I don't have pics of my progress right now, but here's a pic of my side arm mocked up:
-will post later too... Mobile issues.

Realistically all I need is new armor to replace stunt armor and I'm on eligible, but here's my to do:

Anywho here's my completed list:
-stunt helmet
-stunt armor
-stunt Glove
-stunt belt
-stunt trophies
-Flight Suit
-boots
-V 0.5 gauntlets

On the bench (actively being worked on)
-V1 Vest(completed, needs weathering)
-V1 arnior (built and formed, needs paint) (no cod, no back plate)
-V1 helmet (currently in the bonds phase, got screwed by a helmet maker, tons of filler work to do)
-EE-3 sniper rifle, finishing electronics, then paint and weather
-blaster pistol (same progress as above)
-girth belt (awaiting belt fro dha bral)

On the shelf (projects on hold, or not yet started)
-v1 belt (waiting on finished blaster)
-v1 gauntlets (designing electronics)
-v1.5 helmet (deciding on helmet maker and model)
-cape (depends on final armor layout)
-jet pack (long term, no plans for integration in v1)

Let me know how we can help!   Can you make it out to an Armor Party near Lougheed mall the next time I throw one?  Bring what you have and something to work on and we''ll help you get it knocked out.

Okay, so here's my progress:

Overview:


Boots: Need another round or two of weathering to add depth, but essentially done.


Flightsuit: Done, minor additions to weathering needed to tie kit together


Girthbelt: Need nylon strapping for back
Belt: Works for now
Ammo Pouches: Need Weathering
Gloves: Work for now, will update later


V1 Armor: needs mounting system installed and paint
V1 vest: Needs mounting system installed, and weathering


stunt armor: leave as is


Capes/Partial Kama: Need slight weathering


Gaunts: Work for now


Helmets:
Stunt: Needs weathering
V1 needs bondo, visor, paint and weathering


Weapons:

Sniper: Needs finally assembly, paint, and leather grip. Has sounds and lights.


Side arm: Needs electronics installed, final assembly, paint and weathering


Other side arm: Westars. one is relic edition, designed to look like it came from Raxus Prime, the other is weathered and well worn


And I have a million lightsabers lying around too...

Well serim, let's get you started! And we'll see what we can help with!

Also keep an eye on dha brahls b pull sales thread, lots of good stuff up there! With a little creativity to stuff works well! Just look at my westars! They looked bad when I got em... But a little sanding and paint and they're passable

(I'll need help with a backplate)

Here's the new weathering job, hard to make it show up right in pics... looks a lot better in person...



New helmet is almost ready for bondo (finally!)


And here's a pic of some of my sabers... does not include my movie replicas, or personal sabers...
