not nice on the -1 point…I haven't weatherd them yet! They're far too clean still
I just meant Dark Side VS Light point, an attempt to distinguish which was being awarded... Not a legitimate "counter point" to your collective total, rather one more "minus" into the total negativity (Dark Side streak) you already have going. I'm just trying to praise how Dark aligned this creation is to me.

But, I think they look great even without electronics installed. If you had worked a functional electro-shield into the design I'd be first in line pre-ordering my pair from you right now. They are too cool, no unfavorable judgements here.

I'd be down for a functional energy/deflector/elecro-shield. Hell, I'd settle for a less high-tech shield gauntlet like Kratos had in the 2018 God of War, where it looks like a gauntlet/bracer when not in use, but can activate to form a shield when needed.

I wonder if something like that would be doable. I'd imagine in real life it would have to be bulkier to hold what I assume would have to be multiple layers/levels that somehow fold or spring out to form the "shield?" But that would be pretty cool if someone could make it work. Sorry for going off topic though.

Great work mrg. It's really progressing nicely!

***UPDATE***

Weathering completed! Not sure if it transfers in the pics or not...

True, it's probably not transferring the actual effect as it should. It's a bit more apparent to my eye in the top photo and I think the reflective nature/glossiness of the paint is less conducive to "us seeing" the look fully. Maybe a youtube display linked over to here would showcase it better than stills would? Idk, and maybe that's a lot to ask in effort. I can pretty much see the more-so greyed areas where you distressed them. I think it "rubbed off" some of the paint layers to basically show the base coloring again? I mean it looks good as far as adding "some wear and tear" goes, and it's a cool addition of the little "warning symbols". I still say they look pretty great, job well done. On second glance they do look a bit tarnished and less of that "right out of the box feel".

**UPDATE**

I DECLARE THESE BRACERS COMPLETED!

THEY ARE TIIIIGHT with just my compression shirt on...egad! They are also a pain to put on with one arm at a time :-D

BUT...they look awesome...IMHO!





I wanted to put on the outfit so far but I ended up rage-quitting the exercise as I didn't have enough time or hands. I am regretting some choices in my outfit as the tunic arms are super wide and I end up fighting them to get the bracers on. The obi it came with is its own giant PITA as well as it is a bit shorter than it should be. Annoying!

Color me impressed. They look complete, and completely awesome, to me. I suppose that, as a Sith, you can always have one of your underlings help you put them on.

Go find a planet with aliens to conquer? Forced labor = no payment required all profit...

If that's too difficult or distasteful, find "volunteers" willing to serve without pay, nonprofit SW fans perhaps locally?

(wait I see an alternative possible solution, there is a ring on a finger... Samurai used to have spouses assist them in donning their armor before battle due to the complexity on occasion, so maybe some requests could be made/negotiated for?)

At any rate, they are excellent, let the anger they inspire fuel you somehow. Or perhaps that is a mere side effect of a perfect Sith design process? Either way, well done.

For a second there I thought you were going to suggest he have kids so they could help him put on his armor eventually. Playing the long game is something the Sith are quite familiar with, after all.

Oh you know me all too well, the thought DID cross my mind. But if conscripting individuals meets with ill response or is frowned upon (because I'm hesitating to say the S word even in jest), creating life to serve is probably worse... although I know it to be an old world mentality, and many people's idea of a "retirement plan"/senior care. But wow, that's pretty Dark Side in my opinion... "I created you, now you serve me/contribute and will until my death" family can be dark though.
