This stage is mostly cutting out cardboard. As this progresses, I will add more steps. Part 2 will likely consist of (pain)ting it and adding detail, and Part 3 will be assembling.

Step 2: Top of Right Foot, Mid-foot, and Ankle

Step 3: This Is the Left

Step 6: Shin Gaurds

Refer to the template for this one...
