    References needed (royal guard armor)

    I'm looking for references of the emperor's royal guard armor. I am trying to fill a pepakura request, but I only have these references and I don't know how accurate they are.

    Here's what I have so far. I still need to do the shoulders, bracers, and the other belt boxes.

    Nice job so far, I always enjoy your superb peps. I would like to see these files come to fruition. Perhaps these pictures may prove useful.

    Thanks for the comic pics, but it is hard to make a stylized drawing translate into 3d and still keep it true to the design. I'll try to make the shoulders more like the comic though, the ones in the pic don't seem right to me at all, but it is difficult to tell with the overhead view.

    I always thought the Royal Guard armor originated in design from the comics, but I understand the difficulty of fundamentally transferring such stylized drawings to 3-D models. Still, I found these pics perhaps these might be more useful. As for accuracy I suppose all is conjecture.

    So you're releasing your files again? Or just new stuff? Perhaps under password? I hope so, you're greatly talented and I was in terror that you'd be gone forever.

    as far as the files go, they look pretty good to me. since tehy always wear those massive cloaks... how are they supposed to fight in those things?

    You got that right, broither!

    The problem I had with my Dark Horse Fett was deciding what pics to go by. What I decided on was really studying the pics and seeing how each part was drawn MOST OFTEN and building it that way. Those RG parts look really close.

    I'm releasing .pdf only now except for a few people. I don't think I will password protect them.

    cool. At least we will have your stuff now, and you're a great unfolder so it should work out fine.

    I hope the pics help, it was a lot of work making them
