Hello all, I've  been inspired by the Deathtrooper builds here and have been working on my own Dt for a while.

Almost ready to send in the approval photos, but thought I'd share a few pics here and make sure I'm on the right track.post-16204-0-74177300-1389154991_thumb.jpgpost-16204-0-19529900-1389155012_thumb.jpgpost-16204-0-42000500-1389155044_thumb.jpg

Cool thanks, glad to know i'm doing it right.

I'll be submitting my approval pics this weekend, (Last batch of photo's didn't turnout so well.)

 

This would be a great kit to make official.

I printed out a bunch of copies of the TK ref photos, and drew lots of ideas for what the for what the Death trooper could look like.

that was the hardest part, creating a good concept.

 

Because I live in a desert, I wanted a somewhat mummified look as opposed to a freshly dead zombie.

Thats why I went for more browns and very little blood.

Once I knew what I wanted to do, I took my TK and sanded down the surface, and dremmeled the cracks and gaps.

 

I used acrylic paint matching the color schemes in this forum and used a sponge to apply it, and than wiped it of with a wet towel.

I did this repeatedly until I had the texture and color I wanted.

The facial prostetic, I made that myself, I have a some mask making skills, and had a very specific look I was going after, and I didn't want  a full mask. I can take the bucket off drink water or eat a snack with out any issues, the bucket on nd rejoin the ranks of the undead.

 

I took him out to a convention and a zombie walk, the reaction from th epublics been overwhelming. Lots of fun to wear, was it worth sacrificing my TK?

Only time will tell.

Nicely done. That's an incredible death trooper. I think you won't be sorry, but you can always build another shiny white :)
