    Ok, for anyone casually dropping by to see what's going on here, I have a question: what kind of finish do you prefer for comic style Dredd armor?
    1st picture = polished brass
    2nd = candy golden yellow
    3rd = pale gold

    1 and 2 are considered high gloss finish, but 3 is not. Let me know!https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...c47380d9e4.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...c384a9e1ad.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...409d928671.jpg

    No more foam. Everything has been coated is smooth cast 305. Now to sand the shoulder and prime them.

    So, the shoulders are just foam covered in smooth cast 305 then primed?

    More or less, yes. The left shoulder is made with eva foam and craft foam. After it was assembled, I sealed it with pva glue and then mod podge. Next I coated it twice with smooth cast, sanded and then primed.

    The eagle was obviously more detailed, but the same general steps. The claws are baking clay.

    Temporarily stalled but will be getting back to it in short order. My airbrush kit arrived along with three Alclad paints for the armor. Also got in my angelus leather paints for the gloves and boots.

    I grabbed some motorcycle gloves as the base. I don't care for the motocross gloves for the comic version. In casting greeblies for the back of the hand and making pouches from scratch. Here are a couple of unpainted mock ups:

    Question, what do you use to colour leather green?

    All Angelus products. I used the deglazer to strip off the finish, then used Angelus green paint thinned out with 2-Thin and airbrushed on. Works really well and this is my first time using it

    Thanks, that's really useful. I have some old biking gloves that I may re-purpose into Dredd gloves.

    Finally got both of them painted and the wrist pouches done. I switched from pleather to actual leather pouches as the paint takes to the leather much better. I'll add the back of the hand greeblies after I cast them.
