Gauntlets (Posted 17th May 2012)

only about 7 days till Expo. I really need to work quickly. Just need to make some thigh armour, begin painting and then test some LEDs

Boots detailing (Posted 16th May 2012)

Finally finished the boots. Just have to paint these bad boys!

Back progress (Posted 4th May 2012)

still not as symmetrical as I want but I think I'm getting there

Back piece (Posted 2nd May 2012)

it is proving rather difficult to get the right shape. I also need to figure out how and where to fit some LEDs

Armour build (Posted 29th April 2012)

I think I've got the right shape. Now to the hard part - the back

Boots wip (Posted 28th April 2012)

still need to add a few bits and lots of detailing

Boot progress (Posted 23rd April 2012)

finally! after cutting out and amending several foam patterns, I think I'm getting close to the basic shape. I'm building it around a workman's boot to make it sturdy

boltok pistol (Posted 4th January 2012)

I've decided to build this using my wii hand cannon as the base. Will need to do lots of detailing and painting

my baby arrived! (Posted 7th November 2011)

need to get me some Cog tags then begin work on my pistol
