Scout's HWT Build

Recommended Posts

I am building this to be 100% accurate with the Battlefront 2 (2004) Shock Trooper, which is what I think the heavy weapons trooper should be in general

 

I recently comissioned WoodChuck to build me a fantastic Minimag PTL Launcher

This HD version was based on the First Trike Mod's PTL Launcher. 

Since the PS2/XBOX versions were low detail, I had woodchuck make a much sharper version based on the Battlefield First Strike mod

Looks great!

At 8 1/2 lbs you wont be carrying that long at troops. 

 

I like the HWT for the workout. Cause it's a workout.

Haha Im slowly getting used to the weight, ill be conditioning myself to carry it coming this convention

 

Switching hands and putting it down like a DLT seems to work though if I get tired, nevertheless, its a beautiful addition to my HWT build, no matter the weight :D

That may be a bit much for a Heavy Weapons Trooper, but I admire your zeal!  As they say, sometimes less is more...  As per the CRL for level 2 (and Basic in my opinion) the armor and bucket should be .."lightly scuffed (battle worn) but not weathered like a Sandtrooper".

 

Here are some examples:

                                         joshsurf TK 27726                                                   Templar726  TK 72627                                          justjoseph63 (me)  TK 10973

Do you reccomend anything for painting? Using a sponge, ect

I used a dry brush and sponge for my sandy with water based acrylic paint, once it dries you can dry rub with a sponge to remove areas not needed, great if you want paint to stay in grooves and crevasse . Small amount of paint on a dry sponge is good for flat sections which only need a scuff.

 

I've seen others use graphite powder and charcoal, really it's what every you feel the more confident of using.

What I use is something I ran across at the Dollar Store.  I saw a small thing of women's black eyeshadow(?) and thought "Hey, that could work" so I purchased that and something called a "blush brush" there to apply it with.

 

It stays on really well (although it can smear a bit) but can easily be removed if you want to go shiny white TK with a household cleaner like Fantastic.  I touch it up a bit every 6-8 troops and it works perfect.
