Well,.. after seeing TDH forums and seeing all of the great suits, I've been inspired to make my own mando armor. I originally planned to do a Jango Fett suit, but after thinking it over, I believe something more "individual" would be better and easier.
I thought over about a dozen different versions/color schemes. Scuba Mando, Supertrooper II, Ghillie Mando, Jedi Hunter, Pilot Mando, and even Gladiator Mando. Lots of ideas that just didnt work out didnt really make sense, or were just too complex for me to build with any quality at my current budget. Well, finally I came up with a heavy assault armor idea.
Its just a quick drawing. I didn't include any of the small details that really give a costume character. The paint job, weathering, decals, and other details will be added as the suit is built. Cape, kama, jet pack, backpiece, sash, etc have all been thought out and there will be more soft parts as it progresses.
Also, I decided to not include the detailed drawings of the helm or the armor's primary weapon. I think I'll save those for later. The helm design I gave in mind will be a classic mando influenced bucket with minor additions.
and I know it looks like a black and green scheme, but Its not. The darn brass colored pencils just look green in this scan. The basic plate color is a hammered gold or brass color. So,.. does this design offend any standard custom mando rules? Give a guy a clue.
I've already got the chest pieces cut out, sanded, and painted. The shoulder pieces and the vest is next on my list to get to work on. I'll post more pics as soon as I can.
