TLJ Executioner / Judical Build

Recommended Posts

Laser Ax build thread

 

Thought it was time to post some pictures, as many will be doing I'm using my TFA armor and swapping out some pieces for the Executioner version.

 

Jumped in on a helmet from Jimmi, (but I also have some others on the way), I wasn't happy with a couple of areas so set about getting rid of some lumps and bumps, also adjusted some areas around the mouth/teeth and cheeks.

Started work on replacement back/yoke, shoulders and also the biceps as the closure appears more curved in references.

Finally a break in the weather, at the tail end of our winter and been cold and wet, was able to get some spray putty applied.

Also applied a mist guide coat of black, helps when you wet sand to see any dips or pinholes

Left the spray putty to dry for a few days then it was time to wet sand, then prime

Gave the shoulders a try with the matt black paint, not used it before so wasn't sure how thick or thin to apply, no issues worked out well

Also put together another TD, my Anovos kit TD has the extended cap so will use that one for the Executioner and needed a replacement for my standard TFA kit.

No major issues after wet sanding so on to some primer

I'm using automotive acrylic paint same as I did for the rest of my armor, matches well to the Anovos helmets, dries quickly, is able to be sanded and buffed  and doesn't have the same issues as Rustoleum and Krylon paints.

 

3 coats of white then 3 coats of clear.

Time to start masking for more matt black.

More cold and wet days so decided to make some carry bags for the Laser Ax, made the bag for the head section rigid so it wouldn't get damaged in transport.

Masking helmet for the satin black, that was fun, NOT.

Let the helmet dry for a few days before masking for the matt black stripe.

Applied decals to the standard TD and the shoulder cogs. I wasn't happy with the colour of the silver so decided to mix some black and silver to get a nice match to the screen seen shoulder cogs, then applied with an airbrush to some white cog decals I had, came out really well.

 

I also added some sticky back foam to some areas between the armor so it won't rub on the matt black paint.

 

Added the extra paint to the Executioner TD.

Painted the inside of the helmet, fitted the lenses, helmet fans and foam.

Next it will be kit up and get some photos taken, now where's my wrangler/photographer when I need her.

Thanks Paul, an excessive amount of pain related issues helps, or hinders, depends on how you like to look at things, what's sleep? ;)

Nicely done. Where did you get the spare parts - back/yoke, thermal detonator, and shoulders? Also, what size (diameter) are your shoulder cogs?

Parts are from another Anovos kit I bought that someone had over trimmed in places. Shoulder cogs are 2.5"

 

I heard KB is offering parts kits and pretty sure Jim is too.

Just an update with the build, I try to build as accuratly as I can, after noticing the differences in the codpiece between TFA and TLJ (Below) I decide to try to come up with something similar.

I still wanted to tweak the cup section to get a flatter look but also keeping the curve so came up with version II

And comparison with my TFA Anovos

Ah! Congrats dude! This is amazing! Did they decide on using just TK still, or are they adding a TKE or TKJ? or something?
