Reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated.
The Pretorian has been in work for all this time, but the reason for such long breaks between updates is that I have multiple projects on the go at once... from my "proper job" to my 40k army to other items of clothing/ uniforms being worked on; so, I would like to thank you all for your patience with me on this...
The test panel was replaced after a couple of tests by the final red front. and the fastenings- press studs (or poppers) were attached. These were coated with a red cloth to camouflage them against the tunic. I love them!
A further test fitting was done... to make sure everything fit more or less how it's supposed to!
Then one fitting with my blue cloth helmet- just for sh*ts and giggles!
It's still not ready... it's not lined yet, the epaulettes need adding and there's still the insignia to come... The belt buckle, bayonet frog, bayonet, lasgun, white helmet, backpack (optional) are all also in need... but certainly the uniform is coming along.
I hope my next update will include a full uniform shot with trousers and boots included and both helmet types. Watch this space.
