    Hey everyone. Nice armor! I'm new to the DH, so forgive the stupid questions. Where can one purchase this magical armor? How much is it? I got some off of ebay, but it's not anywhere near this quality...but it was cheap....I'm building a suit to surprise my kids for Halloween.

    thanks.

    You probably won't be able to get brand new armour from one of the armour makers in time for Halloween. Due to suppliers being in high demand orders can take anywhere from 6 - 10 weeks or more. It's no cheap either, see this thread: http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/showthread.php?t=17421 for how much you can expect to spend on a high quality costume. Not trying to discourage you but those are the realities of this hobby. Check out the Cargo Hold for second hand items. There are plenty of threads on building armour from scratch out of various materials which is a lot cheaper. Good luck!

    Well impressed, that takes some doing, you would be pretty slick with an air brush! I ***** out of painting mine, but was lucky enough to get Gav to do it. I have just been painting a pack up, that was fun.

    Very cool D...
    I can see where you added the additional tones to the armour and I do love the armour with just the silver! *Almost a shame we put the yellow on*

    Keep up the good work and you'll have a set of kick butt armour!

    ok guys, progress!! got the silver now done on all except the back plate...some sort of "wall" there to get that piece done... but anyway, i noticed in these when i took the pics in the sun, the camera really pics up the dust, so it looks like there are little silver flecks everywhere...oh well, when i dust or use the steel wool on them it will come off...mainly wanting to show the silver damaged areas...give me your input!!! boomer, i know you will, brother!!
