    May 15, 2007, 8:18 PM - Eagleskull's "Tank" Mando #1

    Been about 2 years since I got my first helmet and took about 3 repaints till I got it the way I wanted. But my helmets been sitting on display without any armor for a long time so after may concepts and thrown away old armor I finally got to the point that im almost finished. Jumpsuit still being weathered and whatnot so thats why I dont have it in these pictures. 1st one is the early concept, still going to incorp those shoulder straps once I get everything squared away.


    My newest bounty

    My belt has my ceremonial knife, 2-barreled pistol and a lightsaber of a fallen sith.

    Here the right shoulder piece, more of a decor piece of armor with my own type of banta skull.

    The left armor piece functions as a shield to protect myself from fire as I aim, still need to make the vest so ill be able to attach it properly then just using ducttape

    And here just a shot of my rifle WIP, added some detail(like the blood on the end of the mag ) but i still need to paint where you can notice the blue. Going to add a new barrel and scope.

    Going to finish up the back plate later this week and have a better picture with the full armor.
    But thanks for looking and more progess be on its way.

    Looking good, man. I think you're off to a good start.

    On an unrelated note, where'd the dreads to the predator go? He looks naked without them

    I'd darken the blood on the magazine to look more oxidized. Make it more brown.

    Ya the blood is darker, I hate using flash thats why it comes out so redish. But anyways worked on the boot templates, here are pics of the cardboard concept. Gave it a GOW/ Vader look.



    Sorry for the duct tape
