Figured it was about time to make this since I actually have something to show now. My character is a close-range fighter and will use a Stouker concussion rifle for range, then use gaunt-mounted tekkokagi (wrist claws) for finishing the job. The idea for my kit is a bit of a "wild" feel, right now I'm debating on if I want to keep it human species or go with a nonhuman like a Shistavanen
to tie in with that (starting to lean more in the nonhuman direction).
Since I'm full-time in college this probably won't see much progress until I'm home in June. I don't have much space here to work anyway, aside from the theater shop, but even when I'm in there it's 90% set building but I do have permission to use the stuff there when/if there's downtime.
Here's the current concept - kind of roughly done, but it gets the point across, the symbol on the side I hope to put in place of the chest diamond.
Gear I have so far:
Plus boots, which I don't have pictures of.
Progress as of last night:
Some things are off, but by the time these were taken it was around 1am and my mom and I were both exhausted.
And a few months ago I started working on my conc rifle, started with a Nerf Praxis.
Since the default position of the front pump is forward and can't be pushed back unless the ammo is present, I opened it up and took all of this out...
Going along with the close-combat idea, I decided to add a bayonet. Cut it out of a piece of scrap wood and sanded it to give it shape and dulled it, then test taped it to the front pump, which I had unscrewed and flipped around for a base.
It stays in a locked position in the back, but it can be extended too.
For the claws, I know that they'll be detachable and will be stored in the pockets on the pants of my flightsuit. Chances are I'll be using rare earth magnets to keep them on the gaunts.
I'm hoping to get this done and official by CVI, but again, I probably won't be making much progress until I'm done with the year.
