    Hey guys,
    sorry about the lack of updates for those following this, but i have just finished most of my vest, and run into a snag;

    My backplate wont actually fit my back. If i try to squeeze it in sideways, the top pops out, and vice versa. I'm at a loss of what to do, but am thinking of leaving it off entirely?

    It's a Wickedbeard kit going on a loanstar vest, no problems with the front vest armour, as soon as i tried the backplate it all went south.

    Suggestions anyone? I might be wrong but i'm pretty sure i'm the only one to have put WB stuff with LS, so it may or may not want to work.

    (looking at you on this one big W)

    Do you mean it comes off the vest? If so, just put some screws through the top of it and the collar armor, then put nuts in some armor blocks to screw down on it. Thats what I did and it works great.

    i wish that was an optoin for me. WB stuff is good because it is thin, but too thin to screw anything through and into the vest. The whole shape of the backplate is wrong for the vest, and my b ack so i think i'll just leave it off for now.

    picture updates!!!!!

    i apologise for the delay, but our camera has gone wayward, so here are the pics i managed to get off my phone, please excuse the atrocious quality.

    honest feedback is welcome, alot of the soft parts, including belt are not final, they were just scrounged from what i had lying around to make sure everything stayed on. Due to the backplate refusing to fit, i have until further notice decided to leave it off. I will be wearing a full length cloak so i don't suppose it matters...

    Anywho, pictures are below, feedback both god and bad welcome

    Can you post a pic of the backplate being held onto your vest while your wearing it? If I can get a good look at it, then I may be able to give you some options.

    That is precisely the way that armor needs to fit on someone.

    Great job.

    hey stormrider,

    It's not the blade sword, but similar. Check out the united cutlery "samurai 3000" range that they did, very cool stuff that can easily look like it belongs in the SW universe

    Hey Guys,

    Update time, i finally got my Gauntlets! Special thanks to Tubachris for arranging the postage for me. i have moved the collar up abit as per your advice on that everyone, and am experimenting with using a sam browne belt as my primary with sword hanging support. The shoulders were way too big for me so i just decided to get rid of them, am working on replacement armour as we speak advice and comments are welcome as usual, here is the link to the newer photos:

    Those are some intresting gauntlets you picked out. They remind me of someting out of LOTR. Were they custom built?

    They were actually a set that i stumbled across that were made by Windlass Steelcrafts, and they seemed to match what i was looking for, so i snagged them up. Really trying to steer away from teh traditional gauntlets that mandos have to reflect that his clan has kept armour fashion from 4,000 years ago.

    Wow, back from the dead here...

    I'm not sure if anyone is even interested in this thread anymore, but i thought i would share some photos of my finished Mando, Ason Ral'Ka, in MK I form. Obviously there will be changes, as demonstrated by Hydras drawing, but that is a good while off yet, i'd like to get some use out of this set.

    Armour done by Wickedbeard, including shoulders. Helmet cast as one-off Metal sculpt by our good friend Hand-Shaub, the rest i pieces together myself. Primary weapons were mnissing, so ijust grabbed whatever my mate had lying around (props to you brad for your help today!)

    Feedback welcome
