PLANNING

Armor Planning

Going into a build with an idea of what your character is like can help give you a better idea of what details to add, like trophies and weathering. It doesn't need to be a long backstory, just a planning concept.

 TEMPLATES

This is where to begin in order to cut out your own armor parts.  The templates listed below can be printed out on almost any printer, pieced together, and then traced onto plastic.  It's usually best to trace them out on posterboard first in order to make sure they fit your body/frame properly before transferring to plastic.
