I have been busy and burned out on these damn odst gauntlets, I made a mini armory of failed attempts, 6th version I'm going to melt the insides to try to get the same curves, I also strangled a failed gauntlet, quite satisfying! Anyway progress pics on the way, ooooh also been adding more silver stuff on my chest, I'll add a picture on the next pic.

Also I found a glove kit I bought 3 years ago from Sean Bradley, awesome latex and stuff.

Hopefully finish up the gauntlets by Friday then start painting everything, probably do the plastidip, then primer and black basecoat over the weekend. Then so on and so on and wait for some Halo Infininite multi-player assets/files to pop up

Well I copied PaiganBoi and made my gauntlets kinda "smooth" I'll add the raised details probably after work today, but here is the progress I made on Friday and the semi finished result, and only made one elbow piece so far.

Also proof I did two of them, keep in my this is my 9TH VERSION! HATED THESE SO MUCH, TOOK ME 8 TIMES TO ACTUALLY DECIDED TO MELT AND FORM IT INTO THE SHAPE! Anyway here is the one elbow piece.

I'll add all the raised detail on it later today with some 2/4/6mm foam and build the other elbow. Until then later folks!

Looking good, mate :cool:. I'm very slow doing my basic marine up, been a year & I haven't started painting yet. At this rate I'm gonna need another year. :lol:

So instead of hip plates.

I'm going with four pouches with molle webbing and velcro for oni and unsc patches.

Think my helmet will clip anything on my shoulder straps so scrapping that idea, bit got some suit up pics for you guys, still working on a shoulder mounting system, so they are free floating, also warning pic heavy!

Soooo the test fit was pretty flawless except the shoulders that were just on by gravity, I got some decals coming and custom patches and of a whole lot of nylon webbing once it's all painted.
I know you guys been wait for a suit up.
Enjoy, I know I look awesome.

I fixed the thigh issue by mounting heavy duty snaps on the belt line of my pants and used so elastic straps and put heavy duty snaps on those then contact cement the straps to the thighs then shoe goo the hell out of it, problem solved working on the shoulder strap mounting system thing, probably just use the same snaps and put it on a duty shirt
