Hi everyone, I would like some feedback on current progress both model and build wise. Also any ideas on painting or programming for the data pad to control the suit would be greatly appreciated!

I've got no idea when it comes to programing, but if your planning on making your Gold really shine, I'd suggest using good quality metallic paint. As the cheap stuff pretty much is always a let down when it comes to shine or pigment. I do love the idea of u mixing warhammer and halo to make this armor, your modelling looks awesome. Can't wait to see what you print next!

Ps. You could always print the armor in the goldish filament of the helmet. Then of you just sand the armor and not fill it with bog, it will already give u a good base behind your metallic paint, as they can be quite thin sometimes.
 
Hello everyone! Been a HOT minute since ive updated here as I am very busy and mainly focused on discord but I have updates! first is paint, ya boi has failed 3-4 times painting the gold, so the solution weve figured out is to use imitation Gold Leaf, will be posting some of that once im done moving to my new home. anyone with experiance on that please shoot me a message. Also gonna be doing some group updates of things so I hope I dont spam anyone but look forward to the coming images! Thanks
 
These here will be added to the belt, it needed some more drip so thankfully I looked at some photos and they have custom bracers so i found the cool dragon scale bracer for both arms, and have made a hole for the wrist pad to sit in.

So sorry for the late reply but thank you so much! I got into the hobby of 40k while make this armor so it was originally silver and well didnt have legs but lol the paint i found out it not in my skill set no matter what i try, so were currently trying different things to get this done!
 
Love the progress! I can't wait to see how the gold leaf goes once you're moved into your new house!
 
Were gonna add some more tiny updates here and there so heres some other things! A new bigger skull is being printed and we now have 2 shins printed shin guards, ready for some customization!

Gotcha, wont happen again
 
It looks like you've got no infill on that skull (and reasonably thin walls) - are you gonna fill it up with something like expanding foam? I'd just worry about how delicate it'd be!
