I have been doing other things and have neglected to progress the armour at all.
Fortunatly one of the things I have been doing is some work on learning how to hard surface model better. So I pulled thi thogether last night in about an hour.
I not 100% happy with the result, but it looks good enough I think. I have made a fold out (needs to be tidied up) and will build this and then make any adjustments. Then its onto the chest plate.
And it will be a normal Firedragon I think. The exarch's helmet looks far too complex.
