Toddo's Deathtrooper

Recommended Posts

One can never have enough stormtroopers, right?  Anyway, I had a bunch of spare TK parts laying around so with Halloween around the corner I decided to make a Deathtrooper.  

 

I started yesterday with an RT-Mod that I wasn't using.

Then I performed the obligatory bust-up.

Then I started dry-brushing washes over it: black, puke green, browns, and more black... repeat

Time for some blood.  This is a mixture of acrylic paint and some FX coagulated blood that I had laying around.

Today I began work on some of the body pieces.  The chest and back are ATA.  The abdomen is FX.  Kidney plate old CAP I think.  Thighs, shoulders, biceps, and forearms will be CAP-W along with the thermal detonator.  The shins are T/MC.

As I've said before... You're the worst at this costuming thing.

Are you gonna add some kind of skull or something to the helmet???

I'd like to see some kind of gelatin prosthetic or makeup somewhere, although I've been led to believe you don't really need to expose any flesh behind the helmet for approval. I was told that just a basic skull mask, even modified/painted, would be difficult to get approved. I'll be ditching my mask as soon as my gelatin arrives.

I'm inspired more by this guy than the exposed face images:

It will be quite impressive. I believe soon you'll have enough costumes to start your own garrison. :salute: The trace amounts of blood are a very nice touch.

I cringed a bit when I saw the first cut up photos. However, it turned out pretty darn nice.

Thanks for the comments everyone.  I completed one of the shins.

Here's the chest so far.

These are chelsea boots painted white that I scored a while back.  The paint was already cracking on them, so I thought they would be perfect.

Received the rest of the parts from Scootch.  I immediately threw them to the ground in anger to start the decaying process.

Today I completed the detonator and fashioned some belt clips for it from aluminum.

Out of all of the costumes I've worked on, this one seems to excite my kids the most.  George Romero would be proud I suppose.

This has been a terrific project.  I'm so frustrated with my astromech build that bashing and cutting this armor is just what I've needed.  Thanks for all of the encouragement guys.

All of the new CAP-W parts were glued last night so I was able to start working on decaying them today.

I'm pleased with the way the bit mark is looking on the forearm so far:

All those jagged edges won't be at all comfortable to wear, so I put those kids to work sanding the insides.

Awesome job! I'm actually hoping to start my death trooper soon after I get my other TK to centurion. I will be taking notes :D

Preliminary fitting.  I still need to attach the thighs to the abdomen.  I also need to play with the calves some more in the back.  Then I need to put a better snap on the right side of the abdomen as the snap doesn't fasten.  Otherwise, what do you guys think?
