  1. Its loose stitching which you can just pull out.
  2. Also the bandolier is pretty handy for stashing your wallet, keys and phone during a troop
  3. Yep those are the right ones.
  4. Definitely keep the wrinkles in. I doubt troopers were ironing their ponchos in the trenches
  5. Always good to see more muddy boys. Any questions I'd be happy to help where I can.
  6. No that is prior to dyeing it. I sent those pics through before the crl had been finalised, at the time there was a lot of discussion as to what colour the plash actually was. This is the one I used Even after 4 rounds of dyeing it is very hard to get it pure black, nut for me a very dark black / green looks more the part. Any uneveness in the dye also just adds to the weathering affect.
  7. You’re right about the bottom corner being buttoned up to keep it from dragging. on your second pic you can see the draw strings stitched into the plash in a crescent shape? By pulling these tight you will form the square into a cape shape with hood (hope that makes sense?) you can see a pic of mine from behind in the crl picture library: http://databank.501st.com/databank/File:Mimbpalatka1.jpg The material isn’t wool, it is more like a canvas and, to perform its intended military function, it has a waterproof coating. The technique I found for dyeing is simple persistence, keep dyeing it until it gets to colour you want, I think mine took 4 rounds. I then weathered by spraying various shades of grey acrylics. Any questions I can help with please hit me up and I’ll help anyway I can.
  8. Looks good. What method did you use for weathering?
  9. Excellent another Aussie Mimban Where are you based?

    Sealer?

    I weathered using acrylics, the to seal it got a can of the cheapest nastiest hairspray from coles (I see you're an Aussie). Worked perfectly so far.
  11. Finally, the crystal patrol crl is going to get done
  12. That’s really impressive. You’re right about the BS and Jim’s helmets looking a little big on us shorter guys. Unfortunately I don’t have your skills.
  13. So just add E22 as an optional weapon and a line about weathering being light or very light to the existing crystal patrol crl. Job done.
  14. Other than the E22 is he that different from the Rogue One “crystal patrol trooper”?
  15. What is the correct hashtag to use to get noticed by the MEPD?
