New year, New suit


Been awhile since I made a post. But I’ve been really busy. Baby on the way, getting a new job, and football season (lol).

But I have been busy on the side… working on my next Mk7 armor!!

Got a few things in the works. Updated printing. Better filaments. Better tuned printers. And overall I’ve learned a lot from my first armor. With ideas from SlenderDummer and theMakyr, I’ve combined some thoughts and progressions into my next set.

Here’s a taste.

Decided to do a little crossover with this set. Drew some things up on my iPad and designed some resin stuff. Here’s the concept colors. Note: this is just colored with my Apple Pencil, no actual painting has been done yet.


And if you still haven’t quite put your finger on it… lol

Another concept coloring done. Check it out.

I keep forgetting to put my updates in an edited post instead of a straight reply lol. But here is the finished product of the shoulder piece. I’m super satisfied with it.

What kind of magnets are you using - the *clunk* in the video makes them sound super strong.
They are just some 3in iridium magnets I got from menards. I sunk them in on the back side so that they were flush with surface and had a layer and a half of PLA between them.

Even with the excitement of my daughter being born last Tuesday, I was able to do a little bit of painting while she slept. Got the banished shoulder going, not 100% done, but getting there.

Got it all spray painted to the default colors. But then… tried a little something new. I used some graphite powder to weather in and add metallics to it. Still a little shiny in the pic, the clear coat is still drying. But end result should be pretty dope I think.

Love the lights!, whatd u use the defuse it, I'm adding lights to my kit and am trying to find the best way to defuse the lights.
I just printed the diffusers on my elegy Saturn 2 resin printer. In a white resin. I then painted the white with soul stone blue technical paint by citadel. The paint is very thin so it just coats thin enough for light to still come through.

Helmet has been inducted into the painting process. I, like with the shoulder, used procreate to color the helmet first, to get an idea of the finish result. I do have to take into fact what the graphite powder will do to the colors afterwards. Some parts have to be black to achieve a certain look. But some will remain black. The base colors have been painted. Just got to do the details and the graphite.

Then this is the work so far
