In addition to the sword prototypes, I am working on the Guardian armor. My plan is to have two slightly different versions of the armor to distinguish between the Northern and Southern Guardians. The Northern Guardians will have layered rounded strip for the pauldron (shoulder pieces) while the Southern Guardians will have a more angular shaped pauldron.
My task list:
- Tweak the design of the front breastplate
- Redesign the Spark Gem. I want a more gem-like shape.
- Redesign the attachment methods for pauldron and the securement straps of the front and back breastplate
- Redesign the back breastplate
- Design the Southern Guardian Pauldron
- Update the electronics
I had to hide this armor prototype from my son’s friends because almost everyone wants to wear it.So, yeah, I have a lot of work to do, but having kids like my toys makes it a lot fun. More updates to come on the Guardian armor.Tagged
