    custom mandalorian ideas

    made this one up, might be a nice project for in the summer... what do you guys think?



    ow I forgot, it lacks any form of real detail, such as belts, weapons, greeblies, lights and so on and so on... I'll figure that out when and if I start the pieces themselves..

    I love that! I think it looks just different and strange enough to actually be EU. The only detractor for me is the hood but other than that...

    Very nice! Looks very "Darth Revan". Come check out the HVM board...we're "

    Thats a really nice design. It looks very much like how Id imagine a sith-mandalorian type character.

    That's cool. I like the emblem being built by the chest armor.

    Very cool. I think you should put the holsters underneath the skirt tho.. They kinda look off where they are, an if you had em under it would be kinda "old west" where you'd have to flip it open to get your guns. Or maybe you have your guns on cross-draw?

    Seems like you have the approval of the HV&M crowd, as I too like it! We have a member on HV&M that has done a Sith-Mando, and your idea looks just as cool.

    Re: custom mandalorian ideas

    thnx people!!

    but I think I'll go back to the drawing board then.

    don't want no Sith Spit

    hmm... a different colour scheme of just the cloak might work, or leave it out all together...

    so things that will make it less sith like will probably be skipping the cloak/changing it dramatically , weathering scheme, less black...

    *EDIT:* and it will also be guns, guns and guns... no swords, no sabers no nothin'... blasters...

    hmm... now that you mention it, it is kind of Revan like... don't like that...

    well I dunno, just brainstorming away here...

    thnx again!!

    Re: custom mandalorian ideas

    Is Revan a sith character from the EU? He sounds like quite a bad-a*$

    I havent read any of the Star Wars books . .exept for Tales of the Bounty Hunters of course

    Yeah, Revan's from the EU. She/He (depending on how you play the game) is from the KOTOR games.

    Interesting to see another mandoskull-on-the-chest-armor custom. The only armor I've seen this done well on is Danakin's because it can be a tricky layout. Good luck with getting it to look good if you keep it in your design, RBF.

    Wow, interesting design. Looks pretty badass, especialy like the hair coming out of the bucket, the giant mando logo, and the skirt part. Go for it, I am sure this will be a awesome costume

    The robes and cloak make it what it is. Really don't change it

    I might try a different colour scheme, but I agree with Ronin, I added the robes to take what makes Boba, Boba, and then add the different touches.

    I want an RBF made custom Mandalorian, not a recoloured Jango or Boba.

    Dude the robes are cool, the only thing I see about this that you might consider changing is the color scheme. Theres like 15000 red and black mandos out there. BTW I agree that a custom shouldn't just be a repainted jango or boba. great custom gear man. Can't wait to see some of this.

    Re: custom mandalorian ideas

    I always thought it would be cool to have a mando with dozens of light sabers on it as tropies of the jedi that you killed But that idea was kinda taken by genral.G

    Re: custom mandalorian ideas

    the tail on the back gave me an idea...

    integrate more Fulgore into the design (ya know, the freakin'awesome cyborg from Killer Instinct?)

    This is alot less Sith like right?
