    Ok
    Got some more done
    I did a black wash on everything to tone it down some.
    Also installed the shoulder studs on the collar
    I guess that would make them collar studs then , huh?





    oh, I almost forgot
    I started painting/assembling the gauntlet thingies today to
    Here's today's progress






    Stay tuned, more to come.

    Really nice work Nate, you get better and better all the time. Are you going all topical on these or layering?

    Thank you
    The paint is all layered
    well,except for the yellow around the scratches
    since it's topical on the ROTJ armour, I figured it would be topical on the ESB too

    The gauntlets still need the darker markings painted on as well

    judging by my previous pics above, it Looks like Imageshack has been hacked
    ???
    I'll leave them up for now
    maybe they will fix themselves.
    anyway...
    Here's the Flamethrower for the gauntlets
    Without flash



    and with flash to show the silver better
