Moving on to the carapace armour. I thought it might be relatively simple to do, but that’s not the case!
Two pieces – chest and back plate with an integral bevor/collar. On the chest piece is a mock rib-cage and on the bevor, an Imperial Aquila. That didn’t sound too difficult until I started to use Worbla for the first time. I discovered my thermoplastic skills are gash. I’ve used craft foam between Worbla sheets which was ok when initially cut-out.



But then I don’t know if I’m using it properly, it hasn’t seemed to have stuck to the foam layer and once I shaped it there were bubbles galore and quite a bit of distortion.



The chest piece is the worst, but that will be hidden by the rib-cage.

Anyway, all suggestions greatly received – more work to do I reckon

It wasn’t easy, but after a lot of messing around I have attached a gorget to the breastplate. It isn’t right however. On trying it on I found that the front part is angled to low and the aquila that will go on it will not be seen very well. It also doesn’t look like the one on the figure I’m using as a guide. So, that is going to get a bit of a mod.

Carapace Armour
« Reply #17 on: December 04, 2015, 06:48:30 AM »
This is the carapace and shoulder armour almost done. I couldn't wait to photograph further fine tuning before applying the first undercoat, so this is the only pic prior to undercoating.
Since this pic I have finished-off the rib-cage decoration. I have also:
Cut and shaped the bottom of the chest plate..
Added mock rivets to chest and back plate.
Added aquila to the  shoulder guard.
Added Skulls to the rere-brace.

I'll post some more pics when the paint job is underway.

Carapace Armour
« Reply #18 on: December 10, 2015, 03:53:51 AM »
The carapace armour has had an undercoat of satin black paint, maybe I should have used a matt. Aquila and skulls on the chestplate and shoulders has been given the same paint job as the skulls on the collar insignia of the greatcoat.
The paint scheme for them is that from the 'Eavy Metal Masterclass, Demon Prince brass armour trim guide.

The breastbones were attached to the chestplate with hot glue and then painted using a Games Workshop skull colour painting guide. There are a few bits to finish-off and then I'll weather the armour and start on the rebreather unit to sit on the back of the backplate. I think I'll vacuum form that to minimise the weight.

That's some good looking armour thus far dude.

Where did you get the collar skulls from again (might have missed it)?

As you were.

'As you were'? Do you mean you don't need the question answered?
If you do, the skulls are a resin ornament from the the great girls at Tribal Voice in Plymouth - http://www.tribalvoice.co.uk/en/

I cut the back off the skulls off and then painted them a metallic scheme. They are stitched to the collar.

'As you were' in this instance is a military reference dude.

I sometime use 'as you were' and 'carry on' in my posts.

Thanks for the answer. On with the build!!!!!

I've got hold of some more bits and pieces for my head. As well as the existing mask, I have now added:

A hose to connect the mask to the re-breather unit - one of those russian rubber ones which was a couple of quid on fleabay.
Plastic 90 degree bend to attach hose to re-breather - couple of quid from my local DIY store. It's a 40mm plastic waste fitting.
Airsoft half-skull face-mask (again, a couple of quid) - this'll sit over the gas mask with some mods. I'll also be able to remove parts of the gas mask that'll be hidden, this'll allow some breathing holes and hopefully stop  the eye lens misting up.
A replica German M35 helmet - this didn't cost as I managed to persuade someone to get it as an xmas present.
