The armor the Deathwatch wears is seriously awesome. Both Jango and Boba Fett wore Deathwatch armor.
So I decided to make some. But I wanted to do the red version, below. (otherwise known as Deathwatch Super Commando) Why? Because it is awesome, and I have a Lego minifigure of one.
The chest plates were made out of cardboard, and the pauldrons (shoulder plates), shin guards, and knee pads we already had, I just painted them. I had a little bit of trouble with the gauntlets (forearm), but I eventually made them out of cardboard as well. The main difficulty was attaching the armor to the shirt, since I didn't really want to make it permanent. I ended up making a sort of harness for it out of some nylon straps. The belt was made with duct tape.
The blaster is an old broken Nerf gun, simply spray painted black.
So now I have this set of really cool armor, and absolutely nowhere to keep it. A lot like all my other projects really. I have creations stashed in every corner of our room, in the closets, on the shelves, under the bed, on the walls, and everywhere else there is a bit of room. Oh well. It looks cool anyway.
