The STARS and BSAA wear emblems because they are legal enforcement organizations. They're representing themselves like any sanctioned para-military organization would.

UBCS wear Umbrella emblems because they're a public security organization of Umbrella. They carry out assignments that appear legal and beneficial to the public (even though members like Nicholai have additional secret objectives.) Them wearing emblems is the same as a security guard wearing his badge - they're supposed to be known.

The USS (where HUNK is from) carries out illegal, unethical, and exclusively secret assignments. They're not known to the public. If one of them was to die on a mission (for example, HUNK's team in the sewers) they would not want Umbrella emblems on them because if the body was found then the public would immediately know Umbrella was up to something.

It's as simple as that. Of course you can do as you please with your costume, but if you're trying to pay homage to HUNK, you basically tread on everything about him by slapping Umbrella emblems on you, just for the sake of recognition. It's just kind of ironic.

Im planning on doing a heavy armour version of HUNK for a future event. Already have the armour for almost all of it but where does one get good armour for upper arms and forearms and such?

Also What would a "Heavier" armoured helmet choice be?

And should the mask stay the same? The S10 with red lenses?

Sounds cool! I would leave the mask, as it's iconic. The MICH helmet he wears is already about as good as they come, so I would leave that as well. You can see some references for upper arm armor on the BSAA in RE6:



I've never seen a place that sells the upper arm armor by itself, but some airsoft vests come with it (look up airsoft body armor, MOLLE body armor, etc.) I've also seen people do cool stuff with elbow/knee pads.

This might give you an idea:

Hey guys, any suggestion about the tan shoulder pads? I'd like to buy them since I'm worse than bad in sewing/painting and I don't want to ruin the costume. These are the best pads I found, but the colour makes me shiver -_-

For the alternative on the shoulder pads, I just simply take it apart, right? Or is there some trick to it? I don't want to ruin them either, but I'm going for the paint job on the black pads instead.

What you need is this:

Simply paint the black webbing down the middle black, or replace it with black webbing. Make sure to use masking tape to keep paint off the rest of it. Easy as pie.

That does sound easy, but is it worth buying the tan ones instead of painting over the black shoulder pads?

Thanks Cpt, but I think i'm gonna go with the pads, since I think they would fit better with the chest rig.

Oh, are you talking about his ORC design? I thought you were talking about RE4/Umbrella Chronicles/Mercs. My bad. :P

When I made the ORC vest I went with these in OD:

But it took some heavy modifications. If you're looking for quick and easy, the shoulder pads may be your best option. Although really, painting is super easy. Which chest rig are you using as the base?
