Finally...some more fun progress pics
I started off making a paper shape of the guards and then sculpting a corresponding piece out of clay. I'll make a mold of the clay sculpt and pour a plaster cast that I can sand and make better
I'll then make a mold of that so I can make the guard in fiberglass cause I just know these are gonna take some abuse and I'll be able to make new ones when they break / disappear
I'll also design the spike / spike holder to screw to the guard and also be easily replaced when they break away
Probably have to carry extra ones while out troopin'
I'll try to keep on top of this and post progress pics as I go
