Well these are my opinions on your upgraded armor however make sure you get the opinions of some the other Official members before you start changing your kit on my account.1. I'm 100% sure those knees won't work for a few reasons. A. Stock Home Depot knee pads aren't allowable per CRLs B. the exposed straps are not the same color as you flightsuit and C. Staples? That seem like it could be uncomfortable but I don't know if it's not allowed.2. Your flightsuit is bunching up at your wrists. I think you should try and pull the excess up under you gauntlets or cut it off.3. I understand you wan't to have a clean kit but you should at least blackwash it to give it a little more of a lived in feel.Other than those things I like what you've done with the upgrades. The gaunts and the axes add to the concept really well.Again get another opinion before you scrap everything on my account.Keep it up!Oya!
Lovin' me some CW DW helmet! Looks good, Beviin!
Overall, things look pretty good. I do have a couple of suggestions though...1. On the knee's, in addition to looking in universe, any real world or sports armor has to be so modified as to not be recognizable for it's original form and function. Just looking at these, I cans till see them clearly as carpentars knee's. They definatly need more modding. I wish I could be more specific than that but, it's hard to quanitfy. Ghost from Talon Clan has a pretty good example of carpenter knee mods.2. As for the issue with the cuffs, gloves and gaunts. I would recommend trying to adjust that bunching at the wrist. Either tuck the flightsuit into the gloves or lower the gaunts to cover that area.3. The strapping on the knee's looks to be grey? Maybe not the same exact shade but close enough it's not a problem.
A lot of folks buy them mostly for the convenient strapping and padding and then mount some other plastic parts or cap and greeblies over them.
I would love to see this kit in person. You are showing great progress. How ever there are several issues that we should address in person.Jampa Tor "Ruus'alor" Krayt Clan
