To start off with, i know technically this isnt a costuming thread, but it kind of is. I'll explain.
Four years ago (or something like that) i started making my own custom armour, and although it has taken me a while, and im still not finished, it has gone through a few different design tweeks. While making the armour, i have been thinking about the back story as many of us do, and it kinda snowballed a bit. I love writing, and i have now ended up writing 4 (working on the 5th) short stories about my custom mando and the rest of his clan. obviously this gave me a chance to design more of them and i thought maybe i would share them with all of you.
So far, there are seven members of 'Dead Squad' - Four are mandalorian, one is a Sullustan, one is a slice hound, and an astromech. But there is also a female mando who is stalking them, with a contract on one of the characters.
Here are the drawings that i have done so far, with a name for each.
Taler Galaar - RC-1133 recorded as KIA during the battle of Geonosis. Bred to be the best soldier in the galaxy. has a back mounted twin hellfire harpoon missile system intergrated into his armoured backpack - a habit from his army days when he had to carry everything with him.
Kyr'am Galaar - Mandalorian bounty hunter, late fifties, Originally from Corellia. Tracker and sniper, favours long range weapons or dual pistol quick draw. dislikes jetpacks or anything that is clamped to the back plate, instead prefering a long brown coat that breaks up his silhouette.
G'hrunk - Whiphid Mandalorian, was a slave at Soruu the Hutt's compound on Nar Shaddaa. was forced to battle other beings for sport. Managed to escape with the help of Kyr'am, and joined the clan. Despises the use of energy weapons, prefering to use spears and blades.
Dugg Wyndaru - Mandalorian bounty hunter, early twenties, originally from Ord Mantell. Bit of an all rounder - likes twin blaster quick draw, but knows the advantages of long range weapons. Pilots the ship 'Storm Fortress', and works with G'hrunk. Only one to have a jetpack.
Jenna Nova - Mandalorian bounty hunter, mid twenties, originally from Balmorra. Hired gun for Soruu the Hutt. graceful and agile, yet deadly, all her weapons have style. No jetpack or backpack.
Well, thats all of the drawings i have for now. i am going to try and finish G'hrunk sometime soon, and also draw the Sullustan and the two mute companions (the astromech and the slice hound) but there will be more characters as well. there are a number of bad guys, as well as those who appear to have no side whatsoever.
If anyone would like to read the story, let me know. I did post it on my old thread, but im going to try and keep that just for the build now.
