    Another CC Bly Version



    Hi,

    The white armor you are seeing above is starting to become a 327th Clone Comander Bly armor.

    I've been assembling and painting it (together with some help), since august last year, not constantly but every now and then when there was time to work on it.

    It's like working on a hotrod, I guess you guys know what I mean.

    As I'm taking it slowly at the moment, just finishing the basic white layers (there are already three thin layers of paint on this armor, grey and two layers of white)

    I chose grey for the first layer, because I used the kotobukya statue as a number 1 working reference , but the yellow colors will be as much as screen accurate as possible as the koto-colors tend to look a bit different.

    Here's the armor in grey ground colors, also to get more depth in battledamage, when the armor gets scratched during troops.



    The kama also has been made, here are the first impressions.

    I chose for a battered kama, because to me, it yells more roughness as Bly operates in jungle-like/swamp-like environments.





    Excuse me for the poor quality of pictures, they've been made in hurry with a cell-phone, when the project's done expect loads of good pictures .



    The compad on my right-forarm, a rubber compad (Steelblitz) which I got from a fellow garrison member and intigrated it by cutting out the shape out of the forarm ,i like it better this way.

    The Helmet I use is a limited edition MR clone helmet customized with a neckring glued in with fyberglass glue.



    The binoculars , holsters, pistols and ammo cells are courtasy of Evo3 (andy).







    This what's been done last sathurday

    I'll keep this topic updated

    Here's the first picture of the color paint job for Bly,




    In comparison to the official photo you can see that the leg stripe isn't exactly centered on the upperleg line.

    Dig the paint and scuffing on the knee armor, very subtle.

    Hi Ralf,

    For the color on the belt we used revell enamel paint (number 16), the belt buckle is done with a gunmetal color spray-can.

    To glue the boxes we used magnumbond + activator.

    Re: Another CC Bly Version

    I'm here to help aswell

    Today we finished the armor up to the abdomen (final weathering will happen after the whole armor is painted) tomorrow I will shoot some more pictures after the chest stripe is done.





    Because the boxes show some grey areas (grey dirt), we used some grey aswell, to us it gives the belt more depth, maybe it looks a bit overdone in the picture....but the final decision will be made after the whole armor is ready for final dusting.

    Here is a picture also from the sunday testfit, not to revealing I guess...



    the upperleg is turned to the side as i'm not wearing the harnass, it's only to compare the colors (to see if the right colors were used)

    Re: Another CC Bly Version

    It has been done with revell enamel model paint (the 14 ml version)

    The numbers used:

    number 16 for the lighter color (sand color)
    number 88 for the darker color

    We used dark grey to give it that dusty feel to it.




    By the way thanks everyone for the nice comments, we're almost finished with the helmet just have to add the mohawk colors.



    We decided to use the unfinished compad aswell and it has been painted on the left forearm, ( also seen in the movie).

    Holy cr@p!

    That is friggin shweet! You did a tremendous paint job on your armor. You should be proud!

    Did you forget to strap your ammo bricks to your chest in that pic????

    After looking at your pic again, i would suggest adding more black scuffs to the armor. I mean it looks awesome, but the black scuffs would make it look awesome-er!

    Re: Another CC Bly Version

    The Final dusting we will do today and tomorrow, the ammo bricks we will fix into place aswell,

    Don't forget it is awesome because you guys make it possible.

    Might need a second set of binoculars in the near future , I hope you still make 'm Andy.

    Together With Jeroen (framed the trooper) i would like to thank the folowing people, who are making this possible :

    -Kevin Weir , for making the awesome Oscs armor
    -Evo 3 Andy, for building the awesomest binoculars , pistols, holsters and ammobricks out there
    -Steelblitz for making beautifull armor straps
    -General Fidelis for building the finest Pauldrons
    -Todd for building the tremendous armor belt

    I know there might be a lot of creative skilled people out there who might have the same skills as the guys mentioned above, but these guys made the stuff I/we worked with and they did the nicest job, in making this dream become reality.

    But mostly I like to thank Jeroen for helping me build and paint Bly, putting all his sparetime energy into it , this means a lot to me!


    Thanks guys!
