Josh's "Move Along" weathering

Recommended Posts

Hello sandies,

I am in the stages of getting my first set of armor done and hopefully joining the legion soon. I am new at all this and just wanna get some feedback on my helmet and progress. I finally figured out how to upload photos oh here so it's a start haha. My end goal is SWAT so all comments are welcome. 

Thank you

Joshua

Looks really good. It looks like you're trying to replicate the "Move Along" Captain. If so, you're in luck as that's the most replicated trooper here and toooooooooooons of reference as well as SWAT submissions for you to check out. Brow and lighter weathering look great for this particular trooper so far. Just remember, it's all in the details. Depending exactly who you're replicating, look at the references for teeth count, tube stripe count, etc.

The weathering looks more like the CANTINA CAPTAIN / 'STOP THAT SHIP' CAPTAIN, Brother.  Unless that is what you meant. (?)

 

Here is the MOVE ALONG (bottom) ref pic  with the CC / STS (top)...

Re weathered it to match the "Move Along" trooper. Thanks SCRIBBLER for pointing that out, with a baby due in a few weeks and trying to get armor done has me busy. Let me know how this looks. Still gonna go over the rest to dull the shiny white out.

If you have a baby on the way you definitely are on a time crunch.  Keep up the good work.

@ Joshua - Very nice start, Brother!  Looks better!

Take your time if you need it and take care of your little one and family first! 

No worries, we'll be here when you get back! Congrats! =)

Was able to get the belt and pauldron done, just have to finish the thighs and get my pouches and gloves. Anyone know of a place for the ammo pouches?:td:RenderedContent-A75B1B39-497D-4A92-9527-C309C36C8C29.JPG

Check out the sale section here. That's where most of us get them. Also, I recommend you dropping your biceps down a tad and raising your forearms up. You have a significant gap between the two pieces. I'm assuming you are tall and have long arms. The complete opposite of what I have going on.

I am fighting the height problem all the way through this project haha but thanks for the info:duim:

Looking good.

 

I second what Airborne said.  Fix the arm pieces.  Also, blaster8266 sells awesome pouches in the sales thread, can't go wrong there.

Just the brow is a little bit too high and try to bring the shoulders  closer to the chest armor;)

What did you use for weathering?

Just some acrylic paints, that I would apply to the part let dry then take off what I didn't need.

You don't need a backpack for your basic 501st approval. You'll only need it for PO and SWAT (depending on character)

Agreed. I got my basic 501st approval without a pack, so get yourself approved!

Well happy anniversary, but my Garrison leader said I need to have the correct ammo pouch configuration, I have all the pouches, but I was going to attach my shoulder pouch to my pack instead of to my armor. But if you guys have any tips on other ways to attach the pouch I'm open to suggestion.

I used packing tape just long enough to take the submission photos. I had a pack before my first troop though.
