Looks like hard plastic, but I can't be sure.

Also, did you remember to put metal plates in it to give it the appropriate weight, and to remind you that you're wearing something that could very well break if you're not careful? I've notice that those who do so often have the benefit of moving like they're actually in armor, not to mention enjoy the heavier sounds upon treading on the ground.

Believe me, its heavy enough as is. Suit weighs about 50lbs not counting soft parts. Gets tiring after an hour or two. I need to rework how the breastplate rests on my chest, all the weight is on two small points. no good for long sessions of wear.

You need to hollow out the "barrel" on that bolter. It's less impressive when you're not staring down a black maw of impending death.

See, that's an awesome set of armor. It's the kind of armor that you could easily mistake for a simple Guy That Likes The Evil Knight Aesthetic.

Additionally, it looks like real metal. Holy shit, I kind of want to shoot him to see if the bullet will bounce off.

I do agree though. At some point you should make a detailed step by step of how you did this. Maybe you could get someone to commission a set of armor from you, and while you make it, make the step by step as well?

Either way, whatever your choice, I applaud your work and dedication.

>I'm sure that small-caliber rounds will bounce off, or at the very least flatten themselves on plate mail.
.22`s perhaps. anything larger would blow straight through.

plate mail was neither as thick or as tough as people seems to think it was. or are told it was.

>> No.11550939

Hey /tg/, rather then make a new thread, mind letting me know what you think of my Kasrkin costume? The goggles are a filler, I just got the pair I'm using, and I still need to finish my Rebreather and get some boots.

Only picture I have so far, Ill take some more when its finished. Heading to PAX in it, going to have a lot of fun.

>> No.11550940


yeah too bad someone who obviously kitbashed the armour together couldnt recreate *exactly* the look of a warp infused chaos warrior with daemonic armour on not to mention the impossible poorly drawn preportions on the guy as well.

His shoulders are as wide as his arms are long.

all things considered I think his armour looks amazing

>> No.11550973


In that case, consider me informed!

I still want to shoot at him to see if it'll bounce off.

And to travel back in time to give the secret of Kevlar vests to the early armor-wearing knights so as to keep the tradition alive a little longer.

>> No.11550974

I still dont know what kind of aqua resin to ues...

>> No.11550988

I get what you're saying, I really do, but I just don't like how that guy did it. I can't put my finger on why, exactly, but it just looks... off. But yes, the proportions on Chaos champions are especially off, but they're actually supposed to be. I mean, they're a whole lot stronger/tougher than a normal human. Empire knight is S3 T3 IIRC and a Chaos warrior is S4 T4

also, wow, Captcha is getting really, really complicated. The last three messages I posted had multiple parenthesis, periods, and number strings

It's too early in the morning for me to offer critique, so I'll just say that it looks good and that the background looks EXACTLY like my grandmother's yard

>> No.11551015

>I still dont know what kind of aqua resin to ues...
none of the rest of us do either

>> No.11551036

well, it was. Hence the term 'bulletproof'. But firearms have evolved a bit since the 16th century, so yeah.

>I'm sure that small-caliber rounds will bounce off, or at the very least flatten themselves on plate mail.
Stop being sure. Anything past .22 that's not an jhp will brutalize power armour. Russians now have a 9mm that will penetrate an engine block at 50m, and still carry enough force to go through a vest after that.

>And to travel back in time to give the secret of Kevlar vests to the early armor-wearing knights so as to keep the tradition alive a little longer.
i'd rather give the Romans an incentive to use that steam engine they had back then. Sure, we'd be writing in fucking latin now, but i could spend my vacation on fucking Jupiter

Ugh. The derp. It hurts.
also wth this thread came back.

I used MOTHERFUCKING ELMERS All purpose resin. Its classified as "sanding resin" as has a sort of waxy texture when its dried. I'm sure whatever kind of resin you try will work just fine, since you will end up just bondoing over the whole thing anyways.

European LARP people don't fuck around. I don't even know of any LARP groups in my area (for any kind of larping)
the pictures of fantasy warhammer larps in Europe make me depressed.

The bottom of the breastplate looks battered and scratched.

But not "battle damaged", just kinda like "cheap plastic damaged". Could do with some work on that.

>> No.11551205


Plate armour could withstand old musket fire (hell that's even where the term bullet proof comes from, the armourer would shoot the armour and the mark the bullet left would be the proof... bulletproof!) but then as weapons got better they started just hammering through it.

If plate armour could stop bullets, it'd still be used, but it can't so it isn't.

Thank you kind sir!

>>11550974 here,

Ill go pick some of that up...

>> No.11551219

Hmm.. I'll try and fix it up. It has a edge on it that gives it a thicker look, but in the hundreds of times i put it on and took it off while testing shit it.. cracked and broke in a few places. I will probably completely redo the edge before any con happens. I finished this costume like 3 months earlier then I expected too.

>> No.11551578

mind if I ask how long it took in all?

>> No.11552053


It's not the fact that's it damaged that stands out. A full pristine suit of armour would look pretty silly. The wear around the edges looks good, too, it's just that damage looks... bad.

It doesn't need to be fully fixed, just made to look less like snapped plastic.

>> No.11553313

This suit looks amazing. Adding my vote for a tutorial - some friends of mine and I are planning a space marine suit, and we'd love to know how you did yours.

fifty pounds isn't terrible really, just need to get used to it and probably get it fitted a bit better.

Also, I've gotta say any IG guys might want to check out these guts.

>> No.11555731

After some research, I think stormtrooper armor would be best made from Eva foam. Seems like it'd be pretty light and easy to work with.
