    Re: Astraea x grimgerde

    Since Astraea is the name of the Greek Goddess of Justice how about going with the Norse version. You can either call it the Forseti, God of justice and reconciliation or Tyr, a Norse God associated with law and heroic glory.

    I'd go with Gundam Forseti if it were me.

    Re: Astraea x grimgerde

    I think is is a cool idea for a build. Here is a suggestion for how I pick colors when I have no idea how to pick. I painted a bunch of spoons. When I get a paint I paint a plastic spoon. This way I see what the paint really looks like dry and finished. Then I can just grab a few spoons and put them next to each other and see how the colors work together.

    You could go for a white and red scheme, that could be cool.

    Re: Astraea x grimgerde

    I feel his dilemma, what colors to chose. But more importantly how do I chose a color that doesn't look like I got the idea from another Gumpla builder. It is so damn hard to be original in this hobby. Your in thew middle of what you think is a super cool idea that "You just had" and then you see about 100 of them on line just like yours if you do an image search.

    Yea I had to strip the original paint job and re prime it, it didn't come out the way I wanted it to.

    Man something about it just looks so damn evil... In a cool way though, it just looks ready to slaughter. I think I want that...

    Re: Astraea x grimgerde

    Should I move the thrusters up off the hips?

    Maybe a little higher, they seem kinda low.

    Re: Astraea x grimgerde

    The issue is when you go higher it blocks the frame I was considering making a backpack that would swap with the gn drive. Then I can have more thrusters gotta have more thrusters

    Something like this maybe

    Re: Astraea x grimgerde

    It's a bit better, I guess I'm just not crazy about the shape of those top thrusters maybe? But with a good paint scheme it should blend together fine.

    Re: Astraea x grimgerde

    Which kit?

    They do make the build fighters and IBO add on parts.

    IMO those thrusters just don't mesh with the way you designed it. I think it looks great besides those.

    If you like thrusters you could throw on a wing zero backpack maybe? Idk how that would look end result wise. Maybe some neue ziel shoulders?

    Idk again just my opinion and trying to help i like where you are going with it.

    Custom paint wise that design seems orange on white or purple on dark gray.

    Say like you were doing a kitbash and you wanted a sinanju pack on it instead of buying a whole sinanju you could just get the backpack

    And yea I've been throwing around ideas with parts I have at the moment I just started gunpla building a month or two ago and I do have purple left from my kampfer build that might work

    Dark matter booster might actually work well on it
