After many months of (un)patiently waiting my Sith Acolyte armor it is officially on its way. I am getting the full kit from Mynock's Den and can't wait for it to get here. I already have a lot of the soft parts so once I get the armor completed I should be ready to post for approval. I will be updating as I go along. Feel free to offer suggestions or words of encouragement along the way!!!

Well I received box 1 of 2 today! This box included the mask and back of helmet, chest armor, hand and finger armor, belt with canister and pouches, shoulder armor, elbow armor, and abdomen armor. Hopefully this weekend I can start working on it and have a head start for when the other box arrives. I also couldn't help throwing the mask on for a dry run!

Box two arrived today!! This box basically contained all the arm, leg, and feet armor.

I have been prepping the armor from the previous box checking fit, making sure it is all smooth, etc. and I will start painting soon. Now that I have this box I can do the same!

How much assembly is required? I'm trying to compare with a TK/TD build.

From what I understand LoveMonkey, there's quite a bit involved, even down to the individual pieces of armor for each of the fingers. I've thought about doing this build myself, but wasn't able to get in on a run.

This is very exciting to watch!

There will definitely be some assembly required. There is a lot of strapping involved to make sure that it all sits correctly, doesn't fall down, etc. The nice thing is that I will be wearing a robe so I don't have to worry about upper arms, back, etc. The rest of the armor I would think would be similar to a TK build. This is also made out of a resin so it will be heavier than an ABS build or something similar so that will require more strapping.

I will definitely make sure I take photos throughout the process and keep everyone updated!

First coat/buff on the mask. I will probably touch this up and modify it as I get into the rest of the armor pieces so they match and look how I want them. I think it turned out pretty well!
