    Thanks guys, well BobaFettDaddy, I'm thinking of going packless. It would only get in the way as a Sniper. I have been working on the Armour these last few days, and have gone with valcro to fix to my vest/undershirt. I have also been working on my Rifle also. The rifle only needs a few more touchs and it will be finished, also a little weathering. Below is a few pics of the rifle as it stands now. It's fun working on two outfits, you can do some on one and then have a break and work on the other. My Imperial Knight outfit is coming on well also........

    Very good looking so far. I thought that since your doing a camo colored sniper, maybe you can add something like a guily suit type thing to the back or where ever, and would really really bring out the feeling of a sniper. Good job!

    Thanks guys for your comments, I will be adding some elements of ghillie to the outfit. As for the Blaster/Sniper rilfe, it just needs a little weathering. The Armour is now marked out were im going to apply the colour scheme. I just need now to pop down the local Hobbie craft and pick up the acrilic paint needed. Then i can start the camo paint job. As I progress with it i'll add more pics......

    I went down to an advanced auto parts awhile back, and they actually had in the paint section, like 3 different sprays that were meant for paioting camo. They were all under the same sub-brand. I havent used it though, but throwing that info out to you.

    Well the paint job is now underway, I have applied the first layers of the Green camo effect to my Chest Armour. The camo job is going to be a kind of British Army Woodland look. Here is a pic of work so far. I will update with more pics later on..........

    I have added the grey inner cheek and stripe around the dome. Also I have now added the black camo to the Helemt now, also i have put the visor in. All i need to do now is add some weathing to it now. I was thinking of some kind of mud staines to parts of the Helmet, here are the pics so far.......

    After looking at the Helmet, I'm going to darken the grey cheeks and stripe around the dome. I will also be adding my Sniper logo somewhere on the Helmet also, or maybe on another part of the Armour. I also need to start work on my backplate, and cod. When I have these parts ready I will post a few more pics.......

    Nice camo job. Did you mask off the different colors or paint over the previous colors? Did you use an airbrush, spray paint or a bristle brush? It's coming together nicely!

    I did at first think to spray the camo onto the helmet, but I ended up using a bristle brush, to paint on the pattern. I first draw the shapes onto the helmet with a lead pencil, then just paint the areas. I have changed one feature of the paint job, the Grey cheeks and stripe have been changed to a brown. I will also finish the paint job of with a matt lacker.... & thanks for you intrest Hunter.

    Here is 2 pics of the brown cheeks, with the brown stripe around the dome... After much thought, I think this looks much better then the grey. What you think ??.............

    I think it looked cool either way, but going with the brown makes sense for hiding in the trees.
