Too heavy on weathering? Then what does that make me, good sir?

it'll be nice having a medic in the ranks, we'll have to put together a suit repair kit and a people repair kit to hide in your ruck sack for when you troop.

I would love that. Currently learning sewing too so that would be awesome.

Another update!

Finally started painting my AR backpack is shaping up and still working on pouches for my kit. Was thinking of the canteen pouch on the front for my phone but it looks ugly so I will be moving it somewhere else.

I swapped to my old deployment uniform as the camo is faded and it fits better. I can no longer wear my combat pants because I have been doing too many squats. This is the style of uniform the ODSTs wear in Reach so it is probably more accurate anyway.

I don't like the AR hanging across like that so looking for any suggestions on that. Still need to weather my backpack and AR.

For my helmet I was thinking about attached my headlamp to the front as some of my guys did that for night missions. Of course I would be removing the strapping and velcroing it. Let me know what you think as always.

Thank you all for your time and help! I hope y'all are well.

*Edit* Also I need to repaint the handles on my backpack as I oversprayed them like crazy because I didn't tape the off.

So thinking on it, a medic probably wouldn't carry the AR. If they carried anything beyond a sidearm (and let's be honest, an ODST would) it would probably be the SMG, flip a coin on if it's the silenced version or not. If you decided to go that route, the SMG is more than small enough to take a thigh spot, either with magnets or a holster. I would also see them carrying the MK50 Sidekick over the over the M6 series, maybe in a boot holster. Still, your build! Do what you want! They do make a rifle harness that holds the rifle to one side, typically along the leg, but it's more a "I'm out of ammo and need to use my sidearm" type thing, it's not built for comfort. Lastly, I've gotta say, the red nail polish really pulls the look together!

So how it was always told to me by my Js is that the best field medicine is preventative so they would carry the same weapons as the other guys and pretty much take whatever weapon they wanted (Of course everyone had their standard issue M4 but would take other stuff). I was actually thinking about sticking my MK50 to the inside of my left shin with a magnet and putting my knife on the right shin inside as well!

Perhaps I will go mandolorian style and have the m6 on my hip and the MK50 on my shin as an emergency weapon. I may look into putting the AR on my back with the pack somehow.

Thank you so much for your input!! I genuinely appreciate it! :) Also I love my red nail polish. Thank you for noticing. It's all in the little details lol.

If you don't like the look of the strapping you could hide it below the chestpiece! It would allow you to have the rifle sit lower and the strap would not be as visible. I did that on my ODST to hold up my MA2B

They only PJ I've ever known was a CCT, and he subscribed to the "nuke it from orbit" mentality. Just to give you more things to think about I'll tell you my plan for my ODST! My knife is gonna go on the small of my back for easy combat draw, I'm not the Rookie, so I don't need the extra nap padding there :D. My weapons will be a thigh mounted SOCOM (with magnets) and a DMR that I'll carry for the most part, but I am going to figure out a way to mount it to my pack, probably on the right side and with LOTS of magnets. My biggest question is where I'm gonna put my extra ammo, and I think I'll do an ammo bag on my left hip for the DMR, and find a way for the SOCOM mags to sit on my belt. Your build is looking fantastic! I look forward to seeing what else you do with it!

Thanks for the ideas! On my build you can see my m6 mags on my battle belt just like you were saying. For the DMR mags you could put a big pouch on the side of your vest (waist area) or the front where the two accent armor plates go on a rookie build. I think that makes a lot of sense. I feel like hip ammo pouches would be a little too far for easy reloads but maybe you have super long arms lol!! :)

Can't wait to see your build!
