I am currently tweaking the templates that I currently have to create a suit of The Clone Wars Death Watch style armor out of sintra.
The armor will include everything except for the helmet, gauntlets, back plate, and jetpack.
The armor set will include:
- Neck plate
- Left chest plate with identification tabs cut out and backing plate
- Right chest plate
- Diamond with raised center rectangle
- Abdominal plate
- Cod piece with edges bent around in a 3D style
- Left and right thigh plates with accurate holsters
- Two knee plates
- Two shin plates
- Two sets of boot plates, including top and back
- Two hand plates
- Belt plates customized to your size (leather belt not provided)
Two packages will be available.
Package 1 ($75)
Flat cut-out plates which will require glueing and shaping of all pieces. Will include an instruction sheet.
Package 2 ($100)
All pieces are put together and shaped according to Clone Wars graphics. This package will be slightly more expensive due to cost of glue and shipping (3D takes up a little more space than 2D)
I plan on offering these in runs of 5. The price is still being worked out, so it may go down before the first set is offered. I am currently working on the prototype set, so pictures will be posted soon of both the flat and shaped/built versions.
If you would be interested in purchasing a set, please post here. These posts are strictly for interest and require you to buy nothing. The interest generated here, as well as at a couple of other forums, will be used to determine the feasibility of this project. If I can get at least 1 full run's worth of people, then the project will be a go.
Payments will be taken via paypal only, no checks or money orders. Runs will be first-paid/first-served with those interested set up for the next run.
Current sizing of the armor will be posted once the prototype is created. However, since I drafted these templates myself, they can and will be modified into at least a S/M and L/XL set (with the L/XL set as the prototype). Additional specializations will be considered (such as modification to the holster size), but may adjust the price. Details will be worked out via PM before order is placed.
Shipping will be via UPS and will be covered in the price of the armor. Shipping out of the United States will increase the price, though I do not know the exact amount at this time.
So, with the fine print all types up, anyone interested? Pictures to come!
