    hi guys, its update time again, this time i can show you one of the reservoir pumps almost ready, as i started off it was the gauntlet shape i wanted. and now its skirted with a roman leg guard skirt of leather too. by unlacing it i can take it off too. like in real life :)

    it was a matter of leather strips and eyelet rivetting as well as shoe laces and braid cutting and sticking.

    a small video is at the end..

    i bathed the braid in an acrylic paint bath before sticking it on.

    after painting the visor guard i fixed it on and carried on with the leather lace and braid deco.
    as well as the skirting to cover the pump itself.

    then it was amatter of touching it up with paint to weather it a bit.looked too clean,

    i can actually unlace the back of it like a corsage and eject the reservoir if need be.

    i worked a bit ob the back plate armor with the snakes and wethering, as well as getting eyelets and leather strips here and there.
    alos made the laurus nobilis wreath design from the mid section lion out of braid like on the reservoirs too.

    apart from that i metalised the golden painted standart eagles with weathering staining them and als the flag masts to dirty them up a bit, making them more realistic.

    then i had a brainwave, i dscovered my colleague was drinking coffee casules coffee, and noticed they look like the vizier of a galdiator helmet or underground vent of the colosseum, so i decided to cut the grill part out and use them as parts for the lioness shields which i was making.

    you are right my freinds, the world is an ever changing caleidoscope dancing in a frenzy of ideas and imagination. the rainbows end cannot will never be found, thats why the spectrum of design in infinite, but lets keep trying to reach out and find the end,
    because the journey itself is the destination :)

    anway, enough philosophy and back to the update.
    its amazing how well the coffee capsule shields are turning out.
