    Man of War Armor WOW!!

    UPDATED 11-18-2005

    I got home today and had a little surprise waiting for me.....my MAN of WAR Jet Pack came in. So here are some new pics of my 95% complete fett.

    I also updated my belt with a Pavespawn leather belt!!



    I am so excited about my almost completed Fett!! I got home today and found a large package waiting for me. It was from Christian AKA Man of War. I ordered a the following from him.

    chest and shoulder armor
    back armor
    knee armor
    gauntlets
    vest
    chest display
    cod
    jet pack (not finished yet)

    Everything was made and PAINTED by MOW

    The helmet pictured is my MARROW SUN painted helmet.

    Here are some early pics on my mannequin. I am not finished yet.

    I will update as I make more progress....enjoy

    I WANTED TO SAY TO CHRISTIAN...THANKS MAN YOU ARE TRULY INCREDIBLE AT WHAT YOU DO AND I AM HONORED TO HAVE YOUR STUFF..IT WAS WORTH EVERY PENNY!!

    Did you break into the Lucasfilms archive and steal the original costume or something, that costume rocks!

    The painting and weathering is awesome, sure looks like he's captured a few bounties in his time.

    Are the armor pieces fibreglass? Looks like it has a nice weight to it.

    Keep us updated.

    The armor is fiberglass? Has a different shape to it than I've seen elsewhere... is it a unique sculpt?

    Looks FANTASTIC!! Did you have to provide your own vest material? It looks like the run that Boba Fettish has done of original material.

    Hey DM nice armor!!! I also own a whole MoW set (ESB) and his work is incredible! He really has an "eye" for this stuff and the craftsmanship and durability of his work speaks for itself. If you have the creds and don't mind waiting a bit...Christian is definately the guy to go with. Can't say enough about him or his product . The pics I've included are a sample of MoW's stuff!

    you are so right...what makes Christian so great is that he makes his own armor from his own sculpts and he has the painting talent to back that up. He is one of the very few that can do both.

    I updated my pictures and I am almost finshed with my Fett. I am going to modify my mannequin when I get a blaster and have the mannequin holding the blaster.

    All I need now is a ROTJ blaster. If any one has a good contact let me know. I am thinking about going with MLC.

    I Suggest the MLC - it is awesome and easy to work on - not to mention how light it is!

    Good looking display - very impresive!
