WIP ESB Vader

Post by Noah417 »

I have yet to even do my first troop yet, but when I do I’ll be prepared lol. I’m currently finishing up Vader ESB, these are the only parts left that I need: (all of which are ordered)
Vader Cape Chain
Helmet
Armor
Shins
Boots
Once I learn to position my belt and other such things well, I’ll be absolutely set! Image

ESB Vader has always been my hands down favorite.

Which helmet are you going with?
High Altitude Bombardment
Planetary Mass Redistribution
On Time, On Target
Fighter pilots make holovids
Bomber Pilots Make History

I actually went with the Mike Warren bucket, which I just received today. I’ll post better pictures after work, but this thing is beautiful. The rest of my parts all come on Friday, I couldn’t be more excited to suit up.

man I dig that! I love how well the offest charcoal grey is applied to the faceplate. No streaks. I KNOW the streaks are accurate, but this just looks good at the ten foot distance. In the lighting in your pictures the charcoal is doing exactly what it was supposed to do. Very nice!

Thank you so much guys! I’m having huge trouble getting my armor not to come out so much, and getting my cape chain not to choke me to death. Once I figure those issues out and get my cape cut, I’ll be going for approval.
