    I felt that it was a bit too gray and looked dried so when I went back and put a thick layer of clear coat over it I got more of a muddy look to it.

    My first troop with it I was really happy with how it did.

    The cape is just so cool!

    I didn't go crazy on details because I knew I was going to cover most of it up with paint.

    I used this dark grey mixed with water and plaster of Paris first. As it was wet, it was perfect. The perfect color and consistency. But when it dried, it came out way too light. So I added the black and waited a bit to let it thicken up before I applied it.

    I'm pretty happy with the results. I'm not quite finished yet, there are a few areas I want to touch up again and I may need to apply a top coat to seal it in when I'm ready. Also I made a few streaks I need to try to get out, Windex maybe?

    I might do some browns and tans to give it a more earth look and less grey. Haven't quite decided yet.

    My opinion is that its really caked on and that for the most part only the edges are scuffed up to show details. Understandably that its different lighting and a different camera.

    Any reason why you support the need for a pack?

    Because the OT sandtroopers must have a pack for getting deployment even if there are sandtroopers in the film on Mos Eisley that dont wear a backpack. As you know because you're deployed.

    I really look forward to seeing how this thread progresses, it will help me out in my build.

    I got 4 of them. I plan to use the bottom one as its a less green as the others. Looks like the front has noticeable printing on it. I assume everyone is putting the font to there chest to hide the printing, unless there is a technical for removing it.

    I understand now that the light stitching on the bottom is for different magazine types and is designs for easy removal.

  6. Weathering: 

    20190806-212352.jpg

    This is what I had in mind to create the mud effect. The one in the middle looks like a good match, then here and there a small amount of brown (on the left) to make it less uniform.  At first I was thinking I should try to thicken it but to be honest now I'm not so sure. I found this technique online of boiling cornstarch in water and adding it to acrylic paint to thicken it. Let me know what you guy think.

    So has this been confirmed as the bandoliers from the film? I was going to make mine from scratch then I saw that they a pretty cheap, if its the correct ones. To be honest I would only wear it for the approval.

    It was probably the waxy finish that kept it from taking the dye. 

    Agreed

    Definitely keep the wrinkles in.  I doubt troopers were ironing their ponchos in the trenches :D

    Lol, its the trekkies that aren't allowed to have wrinkles. I just don't want too may wrinkles ya know. 


  9. First attempt. 

    20190803-085920.jpg

    They're much more wrinkles now which I'm not really sure how to get out, maybe I'll just leave them in

    As you can see, one side took the bye better than the other

    The leather circles shrink a little bit and got hard from the boiling water which I should have expected because I've dyef ammo pouches before and had the same issue. I don't think it's a big deal though as long as they don't fall apart.
