Looks good dude. I have a question tho. To be honest, I should've asked this earlier...

Why did you choose to make the right shoulder a skull? I understand that this is your interpretation of The Emperors armour, but I think that the right shoulder needs to be more ornate (unless you already have plans for this?).

In the end tho, it's your armour, I am only offering ideas. Carry on.
Treat us with honour, Brothers. Not because we will bring you victory this day, but because our fate will one day be yours...

thanks

I wanted made a skull for this shoulder strap only because I love the armor of Maugan-Ra; and I find the skull shoulders give it a terrible look.

I wanted reproduce this impression on mine, obviously with an ornament in a style more "chaplain" . But of course yes it will not stay as this, I planned to more ornate it.

Very impressive. Looks like I have another build to go on my watch list.  ;D

Beware the x-acto blade, the glue burn, the paint fume.

first walk of the emperor of Mankinds
First wearing of the complete armour, and I make you be of benefit of photos.

As I expected it, there are regulatings to be made on legs. But when thighs will be closer of the pelvis, the proportions will be perfect

To be honest I like everything but the right shoulder..... To me it stands out so strongly as not fitting with the armor you build. Do you have plans to make it fit better or is it simple a place holder? All images of the emp of mankind I have seen don't have a skull shoulder pad so I'm wondering why you chose too.

Keep up the great work!

It is amusing, this shoulder, it leaves nobody uninterested. There is those who like and other whom detest.
I chose to make a skull shoulder because I wanted one (and I did not want to make the symmetrical shoulders)
yes I have plans to improve it, it will not stay as this.

the advance on the right gauntlet. He is not finished, the plates of armour plating are still missing.

Joints were made in silicone, the metallic parts are in silver-plated cloth and the scales of fingers are made by steel

For fingers I used a technique invented by a friend for his cosplay of iron man. It consists in displaying a thick layer of the silicone around an electrical scabbard and to turn it out of the tin. once hitched up inside in this aspect of joint of armour.
I used some black silicone, but it is possible to get any colour by blending painting with bodywork in some transparante silicone (result is bluffing)

Painting was not good quality and I badly displayed the silicone. Therefore the result in a return " battle dammage " that I absolutely wanted to avoid. But I will be able to correct this later.

right hand advencement.
I have one or two small details to be topped up, especially to hide rivets; but general form is there.

1st test of painting on resinated elements : the back banner and the curl of belt.
Every 2 were painted with the same paints and by using the same techniques (to link these elements together)

the support of the banner received a layer of painting silver, to cut with colour and of the eagle.
