I'm liking the construction progress of your boots. I love to see functional. ..How are you achieving your movement - are the seperate interleaving pieces pivoting around some kind of fasteners?

This isn't fun any more (Posted 25th July 2012)

Realizing making my first full suit of Armour to a standard i'm happy with and in a tight time scale isn't possible, i decided to take a break and continue at a later date.....

Probably after Ame :(

Legs (Posted 22nd July 2012)

Legs mostly built/finished :)

Knees Built (Posted 10th July 2012)

Knees

You put your left foot in.... (Posted 4th July 2012)

Shin guard constructed and painted :D

Boot Paint (Posted 2nd July 2012)

Painted boot with studs fitted.
This is layers of Plastazote bonded to a trainer using Evostick and painted in a 10/1 mix of PVA and Acrylic Paint. This needs distressing weathering and lots of blood!!

Mock Boot with Knee (Posted 20th June 2012)

Made the Knee piece :)
This isn't the final cut but gives me a vague idea for sizing and the shapes required.

Mock Boot (Posted 19th June 2012)

Still would like to make some adjustment but you get the rough idea.

I built up on top of a trainer for the shoe part and the shin guard is composed of interlocking segments that support each other and move independently to offer a decent range of movement.
