    Looks awesome as usual. Do you add the "gun butt scratches" to your stuff?

    Re: Darthmillers FP V3 armor

    the secret on these is to use a Boring Bit to drill the hole

    I actually put the resin part in the knee to add support and then drilled with the boring bit right through the knee and then the resin piece

    here is a example of the drill bit I used

    Jason, that looks amazing ! You knocked it out pretty fast too. Pretty good recovery on replacing that much of your suit on a whim

    Of course, it's just to bad that version 4 is coming next run

    FP

































    ETERNALLY KIDDING !!!!

    Looking great DM Can you reveal your colors for the shoulder bells and knees? Such a hard base color to achieve, and it looks like you nailed it.
