  2. Flashheart gets Savage

    Painted all armour today. Acrylic primer followed by a coat of Ironlak 'Battleship'. Then splatterings of Ironlak 'Chrome' & 'Melbourne' to finish the top coats. Next is 'weathering' and giving it the raw metal finish it needs (blacks, greens and yellows). A few final touches on the vambraces (leather bands around the wrists) and it should be ready for first suit up. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    THIS MAKES ME HAPPY TO SEEEEEE. Also, do you have both a front and back set or just front?
  5. Sokar's Revan build

    Yes, it is in editing phase. The photos that were going to be used were lost before upload. If you look at my WIP, you'll be able to see things as they should be. Please, PLEASE do NOT do pleats on your shoulders or in the back of the hood when you make your soft parts!

    My favorite one to date is a dad who, when trying to explain who I was to his young son, called me, "That one Jedi dude from the Battle of Endor".
  7. Flashheart gets Savage

    Things have been a little slack on my behalf in updating this so here goes for a nice big update. Have been putting in some hard work in making everything look 100%. All armour parts are complete and ready for paint (reshaped the shoulders as they were a little bit off in appearance). Toe caps are made by papier mache and then covered with automotive body filler and sanded to shape. All foam armour parts are covered with fibreglass resin to seal in prep for painting and also to give a surface to scuff and scratch for pre weathering. Fixed the shoulders to the vest via press studs and same with the shin guards to the boots then covered all press studs with body filler and sanded. Skirt, pants, tabard, obi and vest all painstakingly made by the awesome Mammasith of the Redback Garrison (i wouldnt ask her to make one for you in the near future as she may refuse hehe). Belt is made by using leather contact adhesive and joining a 50mm (2 inch) black belt to 2x 38mm (1.5 inch) black belts that are reversed to utilise the grey raw leather. Then buckle and belt greeblies are 3D printed and all fixed via press studs on the reverse that are superglued in place. Undershirt is just a cheap one from China that has no markings on it. Vambraces are clone trooper ones that have been modified to look like Savages by using more body filler and shaping accordingly. Bicep armour is held in place by press studs on elastic straps that just go around the arm. Thats about it really. Will post another picture and update when i have all armour painted and ready to go.

  10. Sokar's Revan build

    Greetings, I'm Laurent ''Sokar'' from the Luxembourg Outpost, and I'm planning to expand my costume collection with one of my favorite Sith. For the most parts I intend to make the costume at home. I ordered some black fabric which I want to use for all pieces except the red part. I purchased the WA V2 Mask and for boots i want to use my jackboots that I already use with my tie/gunner costumes. For the armor/handplates/vambraces I plan to use Worbla, leather (for the armor bridge) and foam. Or does anyone have any 3DP files? Still need to get and modify the shirt and get the gloves. For the Lightsaber, i'm looking to get something from Ultrasabers as i already have one saber from them. I saw that people recommend the schock LE or the normal schock with a repainted guardian pommel. In some parts I find the CRL confusing. Is the CRL in the process of being updated? For example: Capelet to Cuirass connection. In the main picture I see rings and the crl says rings with different sizes but in the detail chest armor picture i see rings and swivel snaps? What can be used? Another difference I saw is concerning the lower ab/kidney rings. In the detail picture they are connected with a very fine metal line to the armor, whereas in the main picture i see the 1'' leather connection which is mentioned in the crl. Well anyway quite some more research required to kick off this build. My current timeframe is to have the costume ready to go by the end of September.

    As Aphra Most often question is "Are you Rose?" My new name is Not Rose according to some of my Garrison mates
  12. Revan Updates and Improvements

    I used hot glue myself. It works well, but be careful on the side rings, makes the fit a bit tighter where the front and back armor come together.

    As Revan I get Kylo Ren and then told I have the wrong saber. Non canon kylo Vader Nobody in a proper costume Muslim (normally by the older generation) Best one though is when I get called the grim reaper. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  14. Revan Updates and Improvements

    I am really needing to update my armor and I thank you so much for your photos. Did you attach the leather for the rings with glue or another type of adhesive?
  15. Revan Updates and Improvements

    Having just recently purchased from you, I appreciate this a lot!
  16. Revan Updates and Improvements

    Due to the elastic straps snapping that held the gauntlet armor in place, I used industrial velcro squares to attach them now.
  17. Revan Updates and Improvements

    Update, removed the strings attaching the rings and replaced with leather.
  18. Revan Updates and Improvements

    I just wanted to have a post where I can occasionally share things I have changed/done to my personal Wicked Armor Darth Revan. Also, would appreciate any insight others have as to making the costume more detailed or just less of a hassle. Thanks
  19. Names Called While Trooping

    If its a Black Costume, Darth Vader is the number one mistaken name used. In my Starkiller hoth, I don't get names, I get questions "Who the hell are you?" In my Jawa, I get called a Tusken Raider. In my Malakili, again no names, just the reply that "that is probably the most comfortable costume in all of Star Wars". When outside in the hot sun, "That is the Smartest Costume"! Not trooped in my Garindan yet, but I will find out next week what comments I get in that costume.
  20. Names Called While Trooping

    I've been called these things: Darth Maul (this more than anything) Darth Vader (got called this once while riding on a float in a parade, while standing next to Darth Vader) Darth Revan (this one shocked me, if you know who Revan is, how do you not know who Nihilus is? More importantly how do you get the two mixed up?) The guy from scream (this one made me laugh) Boba Fett (not sure how they thought that) About one person per troop actually knows who I am, though at least most little kids come up to me and ask who I am. One troop a kid even went around and got autographs from all of us.
  21. Names Called While Trooping

    Some of my favorites I've gotten as Darth Nihilus: Darth Maul (no real shock there) Thor (no clue how the kid came up with that one) Mulan (dad was possibly drunk, or raciest, or both...) And today I heard this story from one of my local troopers talking to a little girl dressed as a stormtrooper - "Well, I'm going to go over there and talk to Darth Vader with the skeleton face ...bye!"
  22. Names Called While Trooping

    Since none of us are Stormtroopers or Darth Vader (even though I know I've been called Vader just as many times as many of you have) we all have been called the wrong name at events by fans. I've started this discussion on many other detachments and it's always fun to see what others get called. Please share your stories!

  24. Questions/Issues Pertaining to the Forums

    I was wondering if there was a way to change my Forum ID. I'd like to change it to "KrayytDragon82" if possible. Thanks
  25. The parts not in direct light show it really well! I think it looks great.
  26. Weathered soft armor: I went with some of my good inks for this and I think it went pretty well. It definitely dinged them up a bit, but they don't look overly fake. I think I am pretty much ready to submit pics for approval. Are there any red flags I should fix before I do? Thanks in advance for any more feedback!
