    Death Trooper WIP

    I've made a fair amount of progress and thought I'd share with TDH.
    First, the main reference: the Gentle Giant statue.



    Chest plate


    Abdomen and cod


    Back plate


    Shoulder bells


    Thighs and plastic belt


    Right forearm and bicep


    The helmet - before conversion


    And after:


    With the mask




    And that's all for now. After I reassemble my left forearm, I'll start getting this thing strapped and wearable. Still need to paint and weather a few parts.

    All the hard parts look really close to the statue...nice job. Do you plan to modify the mask to look more like the statue? Or get a different one?

    Re: Death Trooper WIP

    I tried looking for masks that resemble the GG statue, but this is the best one I could find on my limited budget. As far as mods go, I plan to cut away some of the black on the face and glue in some mesh so it'll be easier to breathe. A darker shade of green will be applied to the mask. I'm looking for ideas on how to make a see-through eyeball to glue in the exposed eye socket.

    I appreciate everyone's comments.
    I decided to ditch the mask. I'll be going with gelatin prosthetic applications from Nimba Creations (which should arrive any day now):

    I have all the makeup I need to make my face look properly rotten.


    Started fitting parts:


    Finished the boots and greaves earlier today. Moving onto the thermal detonator tube next.

    The prosthetics have arrived. Going to wait until Saturday - the day of the convention, to apply these and paint em up.
