  1. Looking good!! However, I believe the kama is still too bright and too red. I've worked on some reference photos. The night sisters gowns are the same red as the night trooper's ribbons. Enoch's kama is a LOT darker. This image is brightened from the original screen cap. The material is a very dark brown and the edging is just barely a brighter red. I tried to darken your image to match a bit better. Notice that your edging is much closer to the night sister gown than to Enoch's. Here's an image with the light source hitting the kama. I also brightened this image from the screen cap. Note how the kama material barely reflects the light. It is very very matte finish. It also appears to be a rather similar color to Morgan's top. The red ribbons on the trooper behind are also quite a lot brighter than Enoch's edges. And one more comparison. I got a lot closer in the color correction on your photo this time. I also added a screen cap from Morgan's fight with Ahsoka when she was outside and better lit. Do you think that darkening your kama and dulling the finish would be possible? I think the coloring on that one piece is the only big difference between the screen used armor and yours.
  2. Andrew found ONE instance of grey shoulder straps. This boy at the top of the page who also had the grey repair sections in his bucket. He's quite the unique trooper. The grey straps match the chest so nice that I didn't even realize what I was seeing. White would have really stuck out on him. So that gives us grey hand plates AND grey shoulder straps. But at least no kintsugi shoulders. Shoulder Straps They may be affixed with Velcro or adhesive. Light to medium weathering as per references. No gold cracking (kintsugi) on the shoulder straps is present. The shoulder straps can be white or gray as per reference's. Builder's discretion on how this composition looks is allowable. Red wrapping may be added, as per references if desired. Red wrappings fold under the strap edge. It is suggested to only wrap one shoulder strap with red ribbons.

Gold imitation leaf must be used for any patching and filling of cracks. Real gold leaf can be used but is not a requirement. ------------------------------ Can/should the CRL have a line like "It is suggested"? Trying to suggest a certain look without forcing a builder to do an exact thing seems hard to word.
  3. It may be the Zoom Multistomp? A lot of folks use that for Vader voice changing. It takes a ton of tweaking and work, but you can make your voice sound greatly different. Enoch should definitely be possible. https://zoomcorp.com/en/us/multi-effects/multistomp-pedals/ms-50g/ This little guy. A video demonstrating it for Vader.
  4. OMG. I literally JUST looked at that trooper (Ribbon Face) and didn't notice his grey hand. Nice spotting! I looked at hands for a literal half hour today lol

If they were grey on screen, they may look like they were missing. I've yet to find a reference with a grey shoulder strap. I bet one exists, but I would also bet that it would be CGI. Kintsugi also seems to not exist on these. On the hand guards, I haven't found any grey there either. Seems logical that a grey one could appear "missing" on screen and ruin the armor look, so LFL spec'd them to all be white. But they all seem to have kintsugi on them.
  6. This was a good find. A ton of real NTTKs and none with any kintsugi on the shoulder straps. I'm looking for hand armor today as well and see zero with grey on them. Lots of kintsugi and a few with red ribbons, but no grey hand guards. Ribbon glove boy can be seen when Ezra hops onto the ship.
  7. A quick perusal reveals NO kintsugi on the shoulder straps. Dirt and red ribbons, but no kintsugi. Can anyone back this up?
  8. Maybe the CRL could spec that the shoulder bridges DON'T need dremeled kintsugi? That said I've got my own mold for R1 rubber shoulder bridges. Would be relatively easy to make another with a kintsugi pattern in it. my problem has been keeping the rubber white... Mine yellow just sitting in the garage and it's unpleasant.
  9. I had the desire to throw some assistance at this CRL. Hopefully this is actually a help. Shoulder Armor One on each shoulder. The shoulders are considered effectively symmetrical; they may be worn interchangeably on the left and right shoulders and may have a black elastic strap that wraps around the inside of the bicep. Light to medium weathering as per references The shoulders can be white, contain a gray repair section or be completely gray as per reference's builder's discretion on how this composition looks is allowable. One shoulder must contain the gold cracking (Kintsugi) effect. Paint pens or hand painted cracking to the surface is allowable. The cracking designs are up to the builder's discretion, as there are multiple references to work off. Red wrapping may be added, as per references if desired. Red wrappings fold under the shoulder edge. It is suggested that one shoulder have either red wrappings or a grey repair section per screen references. OPTIONAL Level two certification (if applicable): Cracking (Kintsugi) effect, must be created using a Dremel or similar tool into the surface, gold colored paint or paint pens can be used to fill in the cracking. OPTIONAL Level three certification (if applicable): There is no swoop on the shoulder bell raised area. There is no elastic strap that wraps around the inside of the bicep. Gold imitation leaf must be used for any patching and filling of cracks. Real gold leaf can be used but is not a requirement. Upper Arm Armor Both biceps are symmetrical and interchangeable. The front strip is bevelled and approximately ⅛" thick that does not extend beyond the bicep, and has a smaller cover strip layered thereon. Light to medium weathering as per references The upper arms can be white or contain a gray repair section as per reference's builder's discretion on how this composition looks is allowable. One upper arm must contain the gold cracking (Kintsugi) effect. Paint pens or hand painted cracking to the surface is allowable. The cracking designs are up to the builder's discretion, as there are multiple references to work off. Red wrapping may be added, as per references if desired. Red wrappings continue around the armor and may have the appearance of loose ends. Wraps fold under the back opening and allow the armor to open and close as it does normally OPTIONAL Level two certification (if applicable): Cracking (Kintsugi) effect, must be created using a Dremel or similar tool into the surface, gold colored paint or paint pens can be used to fill in the cracking. OPTIONAL Level three certification (if applicable): Cover strips will cover both the front and back joints. Biceps are loosely held closed in the back with elastic, shock cord (bungee cord) or white Velcro and are designed to remain flexible. Gold imitation leaf must be used for any patching and filling of cracks. Real gold leaf can be used but is not a requirement. Forearm Armor The front strip is bevelled and approximately ⅛" thick that does not extend beyond the bicep, and has a smaller cover strip layered thereon. Light to medium weathering as per references The forearms can be white or contain a gray repair section as per reference's builder's discretion on how this composition looks is allowable. One forearm must contain the gold cracking (Kintsugi) effect. Paint pens or hand painted cracking to the surface is allowable. The cracking designs are up to the builder's discretion, as there are multiple references to work off. Red wrapping may be added, as per references if desired. Red wrappings continue around the armor. Wraps fold under the back opening and allow the armor to open and close as it does normally. It is suggested that one forearm have red wrappings per screen references. OPTIONAL Level two certification (if applicable): Cracking (Kintsugi) effect, must be created using a Dremel or similar tool into the surface, gold colored paint or paint pens can be used to fill in the cracking. OPTIONAL Level three certification (if applicable): Forearms are loosely held closed in the back with elastic, shock cord (bungee cord) or white Velcro and are designed to remain flexible. Cover strips will cover both the top and bottom joints. Gold imitation leaf must be used for any patching and filling of cracks. Real gold leaf can be used but is not a requirement.
  10. I wonder if that could be the selvage from the fabric bolt? Seems to be the same color anyway. It's often a very different texture than the rest of a bolt. HA!!! I was thinking about a headband right after posting that. And not in a good way. Maybe the helmet section could have a ribbon allowance line like "Red wrappings allowed through eye, mouth, and vent openings if desired. Headbands, skullcaps, and other styles not seen on screen are forbidden." ? That is fantastic. And I think that bit could apply to quite a few pieces of armor. Excellent!
  11. In the helmet section: For armor with grey sections, including the helmet, it seems to follow a formula. Either an entire "panel" is replaced with grey or a whole piece is painted grey. Like an entire tube, the entire face, the entire dome, etc. Or a whole shoulder/cod/forearm/etc. You never see a small section "repaired" with a grey section for example. Small repair sections are replaced with gold. The only grey repaired panel we see is the chest where almost half is grey. Is there some succinct way to spell this out in the CRL? I can give it some thought if this would be possible or someone who's a better wordsmith than me could whip something out. We also saw a few troopers with red ribbons in/on their helmets. Should that be called out as an allowed modification? May I suggest either "Imitation gold leaf" or "Faux gold leaf" instead of "Gold look leaf"? When you google in search of the cheap/fake stuff, the actual material is usually called "imitation gold leaf sheets." Are the eyes allowed to be seen when the LEDs are turned on? I don't think they were in the series but I honestly do not know. (Sorry for wrapping back around to the top of the helmet thing... I can't make it paste this at the top of my reply. ) Is there a specific weathering color required? IE brown for sandies and black for HWT? References look to be mostly charcoal but also have some earthy dark brown tones.
