    Aww you guys are giving me ideas i can't do!! Remember I'm a newbie, just making a skull would be difficult...

    But there are definatley gonna be claws hanging from me. I think attaching them to the gauntlets would be fun.. like a ring of claws around the rim? It could also be used as a melee weapon.... ideas, ideas!

    lemme look around for something you could use as a base to modify......

    here we go...
    http://cgi.ebay.com/Resin-hand-made-...3286.m63.l1177

    or just save those images and make it from cereal boxes with resin and bondo. YOU CAN DO IT, trust me, just use cardboard and tape and hot glue at first.

    Wow... looks awesome... I think that'll have to be an add-on after the actual armour to be finished.. it's a little expensive for me, especially with the rest of the stuff i need to buy.

    you can easily get cardboard boxes FREE from USPS, I used priority envelopes for my first bucket..look over there
    <----------------------

    then tape staple etc, hot glue is your friend since it can melted, see my post for the wands I made, they look like wood, but its just hot glue on paper.

    ...something else you could do, is paper mache with resin instead of glue over a wire frame...

    And vod, dont say you cant do it. I've only been building armour for about 9 or 10 months, so I'm still a newb, and I'm doing things now that I thought I could never do back then. Do a little research, learn something new, then VIOLA! you have something really awesome.

    You can do it mate! Just take it slow and ask lots of questions! Most of the time someone here on TDH will have an answer or solution to whatever problem you run into.

    cant hurt to try... then try again, it may take a few tries, but it can be done.
    you can also put a couple of these on a braid to show hunting skill. (pretend its something dangerous)

    although its only a marten skull.

    Yeah, me too!!! Maybe like the dome of the skull with the eyes, just like a replacement dome, but over your REAL dome. That would look awesome.

    I think it could look pretty sweet if you used you fingers to apply some war paint type marks with the blood.

    would fit with the hunter type skull-helmet !?!

    Re: well, here we go. Pacx's Progress.

    Woah, sorry guys. I've been taking a well-earned break. how I earned it, I don't know, but we'll get to that later. If ever.

    As I've been on holiday, nothing has been done and my armour is looking neglected and sad, and i get a pang of guilt every time I look over my shoulder at it. BUT - here's what i PLAN to do with the little bugger.

    Helmet: Albino, hopefully skulled and hand-printed. (I want it to look like someone put their bloodied hand on my head to beg for mercy. Quite why they'd put it on the head I don't know but hey, who cares.)

    Armour: Bloodied, as before, but its gonna be a dark shade of grey instead. I'm gonna take the sandpaper to it and do a little scratching to make it less smooth and more textured. I don't really know what else to do with weathering, but I'll think of something.

    Accessories: Skulls. Skulls. And more Skulls . Bloodied up and hanging from various places about my person. I have some... friends... who can get me some little skulls and bones and stuff to stick on me. (Come to think of it, while on holiday, I saw a dead deer.. why didn't I dissect it... wait, don't answer that.)

    Gauntlets: Standard gauntlets, no particular style. I'm gonna buy a job lot of claws and stick 'em around the edges of it, to use as a melee weapon.


    Levi: The cape looks AWESOME. I'm definatley using that .

    Unless I've missed anything, that's all I got, and I will now get into laser-whip submission stance. Fire at will.

    You are stealing my idea for the helmet!!! :mad

    j/k Should look great!!! The blooded hand is kind of like the orcs from LOTR.

    An the gaunts, do like the iron jango claws (in EP 2 where he nearly falls off of the city on
    Kamino, but with claws!!! Should look GREAT!!! :P

    Su'cuy Gar ner vod,

    ok... going to admit to my poor thread watching here... but just now getting caught up. 1. Don't care that u bought ur armor, a lil peeved u lied about it tho... but not mad at u. Still talking to u, still watching/reading/commenting on ur thread, still willing to draw for u, as always.
    2. Love the paint job, needs more large swaths tho. U have a lot of good, small whispy lines of "blood," But a few thicker, wider dragged splotches would look pretty cool.
    3. I like the suggestions about the skull/trophies. I don't personally carry any on my armor (which is only half done), but I don't disaprove of it!

    All in all looking good, can't wait to see it finished, glad u decided to go with my concept for your overall scheme!

    Kal

    So you're still alive, my brother.

    1: Same reactions all around.
    2: The paint job needs touching up, i agree. I suppose the pictures I have taken were basically something to avoid getting whipped (which I sense will happen soon anyway). I feel we shall need to touch up the sketch, too
    3: I'm warming to the idea of a skull helmet. I'm really not sure, though.

    (between me and you, I'm starting to think that maybe I should've waited a while before getting too ambitious with this particular project. My bank account has only just recovered from Imperial Officer material (something I actually CAN do!)).
