  1. Congratulations on your approval! Please share pictures of your troops with us so that we can see you in action! Once your permissions on the forum get changed you can create a thread in the Meditation Tracker to keep a running log of your Acolyte troops.
  2. Your pictures look amazing. Congratulations on a terrific build!

    I think the finger armor looks good. From your picture of the thumb armor it is hard to tell how long it is. Do you think it’s long enough to match the reference images?

    That is great that you are getting a second one without additional cost! My mom made my robe, and she also found the seamless hood to be the most challenging part. I hope yours goes well and I look forward to seeing pictures!
  6. Awesome! Let us know how that works out please.

    It was fun to see some of your reference images and to examine the details. Thank you for sharing them! It inspires me to go back and watch the trailer videos again. I agree that some of there are some differences in the details. When the video game first came out, I believe this full body image from an interview done with Blur Studios (I haven’t seen the interview myself) was used as an important reference as people started constructing armor.
  8. I always wear it up and I totally agree- it takes our awesomeness to a whole new level! Have you done anything to help prevent the hood from folding back from the wind? I originally had some magnets sewn into the hood where it rests on my head which attach to magnets in the mask. However in a few recent parades the hood was still blowing back some, much to my annoyance. So my mom sewed more magnets into the hood closer to my forehead to keep it on place. In a recent troop they seemed to work out well.
  9. Looking good! Out of curiosity, do you think you’ll troop more with your hood up or your hood down?

    How is your build going? I noticed your abdomen plate ends where the belt rests instead of going up higher than the belt. Do you have a picture of the abdomen and the piece that connects to the chest together, from straight on so we can see how those pieces look together?

    Hi Antonin, I think it’s looking good so far! The pics that are straight on are definitely the most helpful for viewing. How much time are the pieces taking you to create?

    Hi Justin! I looked over the 3D Props NL pictures as well and I think the armor looks good. Overall I am impressed with the level of detail. I'm not sure if they are missing the shoulder bells or the elbow armor. This image seems to indicate that the narrow piece could be the elbow armor because there appears to be something above the forearm, but I'm not positive. I also noticed the thigh has some layering that I'm not familiar with. Here's a reference shot and the area that stood out to me in the 3d print. While there do appear to be some layering differences, I think the thigh still definitely retains the overall appearance. Perhaps @DarthValkyria can chime back in about whether the typical GML would approve this. Or maybe that would be a good question for your garrison GML?
  13. I like the neck seal, boxes, and robe! Excellent progresss!
  14. Love the progress you’ve made! The painting is looking great and the helmet is awesome. Cant wait to see pics of the robe!
