Hey everyone! I figured it was about time to move my progress from arsenal to overall..again I'd like to thank the Vinmanmac for his great templates they have been a god send! Also Hez his bio's are amazing (I got a great deal on mine 2nd hand on ebay $82! I confirmed with Hez that it was an original made by him.)

update
finished groin and ass armor weathering and added belt buckle*
So far I have my hez scar bio (primed and painted silver still requires weathering)
tri-laser setup from casey the biohunter (top quality and great guy to deal with)
a semi-janky mr i style suit I bought off a member here on the cheap (I figure most of it will be covered up with armor anyways so no big deal)
some cheap monster hands I'm going to repaint and sew my own gloves into for a better fit.
I've crafted my shoulders and bicep armor out of sintra (1 side is finished the other needs weathering and assembling)
Have the basis of my torso armor completed out of sintra.
completed groin and ass armor out of foamies for comfort and flexibility I still have not weathered them either.
a couple rabbit pelts for my loin cloth under the ass/groin armor.
and my wristblade gauntlet made out of sintra and foamies.
a yard of nice leather for under the rabbit pelts and to wrap my wrists and shins up.

work to be done:

and I'm not gonna use pred feet I'm just going to armor up my old Navy boots with sintra plates (converse spec-ops boots, give me 2 extra inches on top of my 6'1 and super confortable)

Well i think that's it guys here are the pics I'm not going to put all the ones I had in arsenal in here just the important ones! I hope you guys like my build and I hope it helps people out that are on a budget. I'll update it often (because i'm unemployed right now so I got plenty of pred time I guess..hah)

anyways..
Thanks to the Lair for everyones tutorials and everything..I think I covered it all so far.

finished w/cut out symbols in foamies looks good I could have put some dividers but I was lazy though I wish I would have done it, would have improved the look

Enjoy guys! comments and criticism are encouraged, but remember I am on a tight budget so the majority of things are homeade or cheap and improved upon.
Thanks for looking.

Hey Bizen, what are you using to cut the sintra (open question to anyome really) I'm finding it difficult to cut the buckets I scored.

cutting wheel for dremel to cut it, the one with the little teeth is good to get curves and such but the big wheel plastic cutter is nice for long straight lines.

Suit is coming along nicely bro, I love your weathering, it's very realistic. And those demon hands are pretty damn nice, Im kinda anxious to see how they come out.

Thanks Joe, I'm sure you'll have enough time. I procrastinated on the chest for a while it really didn't take me that long to make. Haven't started on the gloves yet I'll post pics as soon as I do though! However I have finished the chest armor hope you guys like it! Posted finished pics of it up in first post.
