Thanx for the reply. I had complete pics on here , not links. But Photobucket crapped out 1 too many times for my liking. I ended up going back and swapping out every dead Pbucket pic with a Google photos link to at least have something viable to look at. Too many threads on here with dead links and pics, kinda pisses you off. I have some on imgur but they're random chunks of build that people wanted to see in particular. I've posted this on a bunch of different sites, imgur, deviant art, Reddit,the rpf, Pinterest and 405th halo site. I have over 1200+ WIP pics, lol. If you have something particular you want to see or have ?s, just ask. I'm more than happy to have someone take more than a passing glance. Cheers...

Got some base plate progress to share. Almost wrapped up the inside details and getting ready for paint.

With the top on you can see it'll get busy through the grate holes in the decking

Alot of the gadgets will get flat blacked and dry brushed with silver or dark metallic gray. Some of the vents and doo dad's will be gold. Some get copper like this 1

I had to pre paint this and the area underneath, there was no way to get at it once it was installed.
I still have the side cladding to cut and install and am working on the orange Halloween lights inside. Stay tuned for more...

Nice progress on the base.  And good reminder about the dead links.  I probably have to go through and update my old threads.  oof.

I wish more of the old souls would revamp their pics, there's so much being missed out on. I've even tried to email a few but to no avail. Probably moved on to bigger and better things

Base plate progress report. Got the outside clad! It's time for paint

This sheet plastic, or frp as it's called, formed right around the outside like butter. I had to cut sections that were wider and longer than I needed because it's a section of a cone. Once I marked the straight joint in the middle of each stanchion, I drilled and screwed everything home. Once everything was secured, I trimmed the top side and bottom flush. I dabateing the paint color for the edge (black like a table top game figure or match the deck plate metallic gray). That's a ways off yet, lots to paint on the inside. Stay safe and stay tuned for more...

Turned out pretty good for my old ass, shaky hands. More on the way...

I am super impressed by your detailing, and and overall craftsmanship! what a great build. I loved how you made your shield- the bbq sticks were such a great idea for a halo- your platform stand is also an amazing little touch that makes the whole suit a complete work of art. well done

Thanx, I appreciate it. The BBQ skewers had gotten used for the shield shell and happen to be laying there, so why not. A whole bag full at the grocery store is like $4. I use those and popsicle sticks for all kinds of stuff.

I think a lot of the Obscurus crew have moved onto facebook.  That seems to be where most of the traffic is these days.

I think the painted base is going to look great when you finish it.  Nice work!

Well as per usual, I got sidetracked. I thought about putting some tiny spot lights on the outside perimeter of the base to bottom light Lucien. They would've been mounted on the 8 stanchions pointing up at an angle. One thing led to another and they wound up being lighted cathedrals with a statue and stained glass windows

The statue and arched window 3d prints I found on yeggi.com. The statue is an 11 hour print and the window about 4. I have about 3 of each atm and my printers are running non stop. The main arch has a small hand made lamp up inside

https://photos.app.goo.gl/xJoh9H5J5VdmsUeY6
I cut up a string of x-mas lights and used all the orange 1s. The arch will get a simple stained glass panel behind it and lit with warm white lights

The statue will get flat blacked and dry brushed with gold to give it the antiqued look

Here's some pics of mass produced stuff while waiting for 3d prints

Finally, there will be the mini spot lights in the top of the main arch pointing up like I had originally planned. I just wound up taking the long way around,lol. In the end, this should be quite a fitting display for Lucien. Stay tuned for more...

Here's some detail progress for the inside of the main arches behind the statues

I googled these and put them through Adobe illustrator and upsized them. They printed out like crap. So after gluing them down to poster board, I went back over with markers and colored pencils. These will go in the main arches like this
https://photos.app.goo.gl/3M2HC2EmXRo3hnZy9
I used a bamboo skewer for the cross bar. These will probably be mostly blocked from view behind the statues but enough can be seen to make you wonder what's back there.

Plus these will have the little lamps throwing some light on them. I have 6 different ones so the doubles will go to the back. Should turn out pretty good. Stay safe and stay tuned for more...

Base progress report for today. Finished all the banners behind the statues. Wound up making all 8 different
https://photos.app.goo.gl/q2YfLUwHzSL5ez8Q7
I figured what the hell, I'm this far in. The cathedrals are being glued together atm and mounting holes for the banners are drilled. Working on making the cathedrals slide in as a unit for ease of assembly. That means trimming some slots in the cladding down low at the ends where they come together. Pics to follow. Stay safe and stay tuned for more...

Very cool additions.  Scope creep is often a negative thing; but you are doing great work with all of these little additions!

Yeah, but the good thing is I have no time or budget constraints to worry about and I'm the engineer and the client all rolled up in 1, ha ha.

Here's some finished goodies fresh out the oven
https://photos.app.goo.gl/nsYgE6sVB5faek466
I thought maybe the crosses would get too monotonous so I made some mechanicus cogs to go every other 1. 3d printed skull and Luan wood. Hand painted and no stickers
Also made some quick, down and dirty stained glass panels for practice and they turned out pretty good
https://photos.app.goo.gl/LTrpdwyDNvtkbjfj6

https://photos.app.goo.gl/aSMhPqCXzVUc4QG69
I drew these on regular copy paper and used water color markers and colored pencils. I was going to try it on tracing paper, but with light behind it you get the same effect. Stay tuned in for more...
