Nicks new armour build. TM going for SWAT as black pauldron trooper

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I've been meaning to add some details to compliment my t-21 build on here so here is a look at my kit, as I progress.

Not yet finished on the helmet but I've put it together to resemble the low brow, black pauldron trooper as seen in these scenes.

1st coat after stripping with nail varnish remover

2nd coat.

And finished after 5 coats and some fabric paint on the elastic. Probably one more coat on the elastic.

Hi Nick, good luck with the assembly of the ears. I've spent like 7 hours on them last Weekend and am still not 100% satisfied. Word to the wise: Very slowly dremel them in form, it's easier to cut off more than to glue something back on :D

Yep, a lesson I've learnt the hard way on both my helmets now. Effing ears.

Nice job, bro! For the next part always keep a cloth with paint thinner/terpentine at hand. I sure needed it a lot ;-)

Thanks Rob, but I won't ever volunteer to make a helmet. I hate it, I'm always scared to death of effing it up.

Anyway here's my painted helmet now ready for battle damage. I will have a closer look at the brow and mics as I go through this process.
