850 Armor Works FOTK

Recommended Posts

I picked up a set of FOTK from a garrison member. The armor is not approved yet as he no longer wanted it. I have to finish the harness and a few other things.  My helmet is Dave's Armory but looks good till i upgrade it down the road. 

I want to know if anyone has 850th armor works armor that's First order and how they like it? I know its not Anovos or another great prop maker Jsin_props. I did see a few cracks i need to fix. I plan on uploading some pictures on here this weekend to get more advice on fixing it.

 

If anyone can help me out more and when I post pictures for others to see how it looks. I have a clone trooper so anything i mess up on can be just weather and treated as battle damage. This being my first TK I know things have to be kept looking nice.

Hi Chris you may be better off posting in the FOTK build threads, TFA or TLJ you'll get a lot more feedback there. Lots of great build threads to follow so I'm sure you'll be fine. looking forward to seeing some photos soon.

Hey Chris,

 

I’m not sure if anyone in the other area responded much. I’ve heard mixed reviews. I have a fellow garrison member as well who has the 850 armor and he’s not been very happy with it. He’s felt it’s flimsy and he’s had to do a whole lot of maintenence and work to get it to a point that it was approved and stays looking good. 

 

So if I were to say much, I’d likely exercise caution there, but then again some others have said it’s been great. So they’ve got a mix of reviews.

Yeah I notice it too in lots of places of the flimsiness . The only armor parts that really are strong imo is the forearms. I’m happy with it being my first set of FO armor, but I know lots of maintenance is going to need to be done keeping it clean. Why I’ll only will be using it for certain troops. Since I enjoy my clone and how it’s quality really is. (Only had one break in the year and half I’ve had it and it was a area I could just use velcro on)

 

i do plan on looking at another set of fo armor fo a executioner. Thought of KB props on this one. Idk yet as I want something that will hold. Since soft parts are already here my cost will be down even more at least. 

 

I will say it’s nice to have fo armor, but I do see the flaws.

That’s for sure. I mean I have fiberglass armor and even I still have maintenance I need to do It’s just part of the thing overall.
