    Apr 28, 2009, 6:30 PM - Chest and lid & new gaunt Idea #1

    So way back when i posted I wanted to do spikes. After some constructive feedback from the group i decided to do my gauntlets like batman. with this type of gaunt i can place a back piece on them and either wear them top or bottom. Now off to make my belt.

    So i didn't finish the leg armor today but i did mock up the belt.
    HONEST opinion. Is it to much?

    can you put the belt next to something so I can see size differences... or better yet, hold it on your belly where it's gonna go.

    I like what I see though.

    Looks like the belt is a little to tall. Looking at the space between chest and cod in upper pics belt just seems to big. Beyond that it looks good to me. Nice job so far.
