Finally got some time to work on my build. Put the last leg together. Then I put everything together to admire my completed base... and notice a lack of knees.... I'll be kneeding them... ba dum ching.

I think I will only need a 2 or 3 inch (5-7.5cm) set of platforms.

A little bit more work on the Power Dao.  Filled the gap on the back.  I will have to gap fill it some more. 
Then I Plasti-dipped the helmet.  And added some straps into the chest. 

Slowly getting there.  Seriously doubt I'll have it ready for SuperNova in November like I originally hoped.  Maybe for next years.

Shoulders: I managed to get some more foam to fill out the shoulders significantly today.  The trim didn't quite work out (pic 3&4) they way I had in my brain.  But I'm happy enough.  I also have some ideas on how to beef up the inside to make it feel more like armour.  Almost at the point where I can start joining all the parts together.  Once I have done that I will start tarting up my armour with decals/honours etc.

Working on the left shoulder.  Basing it on the White Scars Chapter icon with the skulls in it.

Of course, I go to glue it and my glue has finally died.  And the wife has the car. Sigh.

Left Shoulder: New glue has allowed me to attach the chapter icon.  Resting the skulls on it gives me an idea of how it is working.  I will have to trim some down to make them work.  Later I will paint them black and dry brush them up with bone and white.

White Scars Build. The base of the shoulders are now complete. I have also started scratch building the universal joints I'm am going to use to mount the shoulders. The circle inside is 20mm and the "arms" are 25mm pvc pipe. I'll slide the 25mm onto a 20mm section that will be attached to the torso. Or something like that.

It was pretty easy to make the UJ.  A hacksaw and a stanley blade worked fine.  A drill for the holes and some bolts.

Uploading some progress.  Oddities with uploading so starting with one image.

Update.  If this uploads it's because my new phone makes the pictures way too big.  I have built the mounts for the shoulders, started the knee joints, and so on.  I had to remove a little under the armpit of the chest to get the arms to sit better.  Slowly adding to the design of the shoulders.

I think I will need about 3-4 inch stilts to get the proportion correct.

Can't wait to see more progress on your build as I'm quite the White Scars follower as well. My next build will be a White Scars, too. Also, good job on the shoulder support!

Cheers.  I've also started FB page Drakmar's Foundry.  Currently I'm waiting until I can get spare cash and a visit to the hardware store to buy aunt aluminium flat bar for the knee joints.  I have made a test platform but until I get the knees sorted it's stalled.  I should keep finishing the shoulders.

Leg Day.   happy with the aluminium flat bar.  Extra larger washers may be needed.

Not overly happy with the detached knee.  It doesn't flow/move neatly.  Probably needs some webbing to make it move up and down when the knee bends.  However I may just attach it to the lower leg.  Still decided.  Need both legs sorted with platforms and the feet before I do anything permanent.
