    Cade is a project I'm starting to work on as well. I can pull off Anakin as a face character, so I don't think Cade will be too bad. Hopefully Cade will be done in time for C4, but I'll have Clone Wars Anakin there anyway.

    Sorry not made any progress recently, have been very busy. Was in Germany last weekend, and am now back in England (normally live in Madrid).

    I have the armour cut out, it is waiting to be sanded then shaped. However my housemate wont let me sand it in the flat, and we dont have a garden\garage, so will have to go to the park some time.

    I cut, shaped, and pieced together the chest pieces. I happened to have the right colour of sharpies, so I coloured the sintra with that temporarily, though I will redo it with paint, I think.

    using the sharpies is fine and dandy but paint will look better I think

    Yes, I started with those templates, and changed the sizing a little bit once I printed it out as I had them too small. I also decided to colour the triangles on rather than cut them out.

    that picture of the armor looks very sexy! I will admit I am only 13 and I want to make a Cade costume because it won't be as hard my Mando custom! IN issue 6 it has a great shot of Cade's backplate, I'm gonna see if I can get that uploaded!

    Since I took this pic, I looked at issue 3 closer, and I have shortened the pieces leading to the shoulder straps a bit, and cut them on an angle. You might want to check that out in the comic and adjust your template if you feel it warrants it. I only have up to issue 4, so if I could see some references from 5 or 6 of the back piece that would be great. I had to pretty much guess from looking at the bits you see of it in issue 3.

    here it is. I have a couple picks. the first one makes it look like there is a plate underneath the backplate. The other one shows Cade after he picks up a lightsaber.8)

    dude go for the first style back plate. since the front has "scales" you shuld make the back a 2 peice also. it would keep the semetery and feel

    Well, I made the back in one piece. My first attempt was way too small, so I made a larger one. I can always go back and add on the smaller peice as well, but I think I'll probably just stick with the one. I really wish comic book artists would just define what a character looks like and keep it that way, however.

    I started looking for good pics of his gun on wookiepedia (because I dont have my comics with me right now) and I ended up reading about the Sith! You spelled Cade's name wrong

    I won some shins off the big auction site. I'm almost finished the armour. I repainted it, but I need to add buttons and side straps. I'll probably get some red material for the sash and wristwraps tomorrow. I'll get some pics up when the armour is fully complete.

    If you take a look at the pics posted above, you can see that the arm wraps are:
    1) form fitting/skin tight
    2) shiny red, hard to achieve with dye
    3) one long strip wound around the arm, that's a bleeping long piece of leather
    4) if it were leather, it would take away so much wrist movement

    Go ahead and try leather if you like, but I defend some sort of shiny silk or other fabric for the wraps.

    they wouldnt restrict movement at all think of them as bracers in functionality not hard to do at all
