LORD NEMESIS second build thread

done some of painting today. going to have to redo the blade. i'm not feeling the gold on silver. i'll do the markings again in a black or maybe ann off white cream colour. not sure if i like the gaunt either. i thought the gold would be a nice contrast to the base. but now i'm thinking to just highlight the damage parts with some silver instead. going to have to think on that one

finally finished sewing in the back zipper, fly, extra ab muscles and the upper leg muscles. just need to test the suit to see how the thin frabric goes after a few coats of latex. might iron in some patches on the inside to strengthen it for armor attachment points. then if all goes well, i'll build up the skin and start the paint up. the neck ring is really big so it has me umming and arring if the full avp chest armor will conflict with it, but i guess i will cross that bridge when i get to it.

the ab muscles are foam backed bits of fabric i got from the suit and filled with cotton woll. for the leg muscles i cut up an old pair of buissness pants. cut out shapes in a foam stabaliser, glued the fabric to the foam and then sewed it in with some cotton wool on the inside to give them more depth. the ide of the foam was to absorb most of the latex so the cotton wool didn't get saturated and lose it's fluffyness.

finally started applying the latex

the trusty pvc mannequin to hold it up

i ended up wrapping the mannequin in baking paper to try help with separating it from the suit after the latex has dried. the first suit i done took a bit of work to peel off so hopefully the baking paper will make this step easier

i have also started construcing th other gaunt/bracer, i'm using the same base design as the blade side, but i'm going to muck around and alter it to make the bomb

thanks mate

few more layers of latex to go and then it should be ready for the paint up. i have used a lot more latex on this than the first one. i put this down to mixing the latex with acrylic paint later in the application stage instead of from the beginning. mixing it with the paint seems to give me longer pot life and makes it go on easier. i'm beginning to think painting a grey suit will be trickier. it was easy with the first one to just layer the cream, brown and then black. i'm thinking of doing light grey, dark grey and a black, but not sure it it will look as good.

i have now started the paint up. also had my first time using an air brush, it was an exciting experience. the end colour scheme is still not set in concrete. i had initially planned to do the whole predator spots, and then i thought why put so much time and effort into something you are just going to cover over with armor anyway. so now it will be some kind of gray/ black layers. i have to say i find gray harder and less fun to layer than the creams and browns i used on the first suit. but i have committed to gray so gray it will be.

the colour is coming along nicely, i just need to slow down a bit with the air brush and be more consistent. i started on the chest armor but the first measurements came out not predator sized so i will have to keep resizing untill i get it right

resized the chest. seems a lot better. it is a little big around the waist area but i will just chop some out to make it fit tighter. i decided to go with resin/fiber glass. the mask and neck seal is already really, heavy so this will add to it. might have to get into back shape before wearing it for long periods.

got the chest up to what i think is the right size now with a lot of chopping and mucking about. back pack pepped up as well. i am getting the impression when this is done it is going to be rather heavy to wear.

started to get some progress going. the hardening process has been dragging out.
i built a frame to keep the chest in shape while i was hardening it, and now it is strong enough to support it's own weight. the back pack and bomb gaunt are fully hardened and and i'm starting the detail work
