This build is back on track. Financial issues have been taken care and I even managed to slip in going to FanExpo FanExpo 2019
Things that need to be done:
Finish painting/weathering armour. for some of the parts that are already weathered, I may go over it again. Its too plain and doesn't have enough depth. I going to try a technique that SKSprops uses with a mop brush and some watered down mixture of black and brown paints.
Devine Slasher long sword needs to be tweeked a bit. I need to reshape/sculpt the profile a little. Its a little too thick and chunky.
Then a wig needs to be made, need to start playing with LED lights for the blue eyes and scout fly cage (not yet crafted).
I also need to build the carving knife (considering making the blade with sintra... don't know yet) plus sheath.
and the biggest challenge for me is the under suit.

Started whittling down the guard on my long sword. Ripped the bugger apart an started cutting off the offending foam. Has a much better profile.

Will have to do the same with the blade. Turns out laminating 3 layers of 1/2 inch foam was a little too much.
The good thing is that this can be reworked. I won't have to start over.

Little bit more progress.
Devine Slasher assembly is almost complete. I need to still make a pommel. My dilemma is I need to make it out of something other than foam. This sword is going to be standing on end when being stored or even out and about at cons.

I was looking at a product from Smooth On called Epsilon PRO. It's a impact resistant resin that can be used on foam. I could make the pommel out foam and coat it with that along with the blade edge and tip.
Problem is, It's not readily available anywhere. The only place I found it was on Amazon... For a $150 CAD. :eek:

Other progress made is shins and hip plates have been black washed.

Lastly chest has last coats of red applied and will be blackwashed as well.

I am considering adding more details to the shoulder straps and even a collar.
