    Re: custom mando progress

    Your weapons may look too much like Earth weapons, and by doing that, you may be running a risk there.

    Also:
    You should sand and prime your weapons before you paint them, I can still see the orange everywhere from the toy guns.

    What's the boot armor made out of?

    Lizard,

    I`ll second what Clayster said. If you have your heart set on using the pellet rifle, I would severly customize it to the point you could not recognize it as an eartbound weapon. Lots of cutting, painting, and addition of greeblies helps immesley.
    Second, loose the rope harness and invest in a military one from any surplus store...very cheap modification and looks stellar once done.

    Have you thought of using sintra instead of cardboard? It will last longer and will retain its shape better.

    Keep the progress pics coming.

    What happened to the paint on the left side of the helmet? It looks a bit funky, like something got onto the helmet while painting.

    The paint job looks good.


    How tall are you?

    Re: custom mando progress

    Hey there, I like the helmet colour scheme and the “funkiness” kind of adds to the damaged look. Are you intending to add a range finder? If not maybe you could make that ear extra damaged around the top to make it look like it was broken or blasted off… or something.

    And Clay, calm down mate. Whether you intend it or not, you can come off sounding quite aggressive. If you read his post, Lizard does say it's his brother.

    Yep, and I overlooked that part.

    And No, anywhere posting here (except now) do I sound aggresive.

    Re: custom mando progress

    I actualy love your color scheme on the helmet, its quite nice realy! I also realy like that middle rifle, your old sniper rifle, it reminds me of Serinity/Firefly....As mentioned above, you may consider mabey trying to make the larger sniper rifle into a more "Star Warsy" looking gun, I don't exactly know what else you could do with it though. Mabey a shroud or something over the barrel.

    Re: custom mando progress

    thats a rubies 2 piece right...cause if it is then that accounts for the so called "funkieness" on the sides...it took me a LOT of sanding to get mine right...and one side is still a little "off"...anyhow...looking good dude...oh and i dont mean to start anything off here again, but clay...you realy do come off as very aggressive in your posting, perhaps you need to just chill out a little because you risk offending a LOT of people

    Firefly and Star Wars are two entirely different things. Star Wars have an industrial look to their weapons, and Firefly appears to be unmodified modern Earth Weapons.

    I didn't say it looked like a SW rifle, I just said I liked the looked of it and it reminded me of a Firefly-esq. rifle.

    Last time I checked this thread was about Lizard.
    If having an opinion offends people, then they shouldn' t ask for advice.

    Then don't call people out if you aren't interested in what you started.
