    Re: Here we go again...

    So I have no idea how I missed this thread until now, but dadgum that is a gorgeous bucket! I agree with the dude earlier who said it's almost steam punk, I like it a lot. and the dragon, words can't tell how cool I think that is. I might just steal that idea. A'den you're skill astound me.

    I want to see the armor!

    Of course that being said, how many builds do you have going vod? TOR, this set, the modular b/sfg, and doing stuff for friends? where do you find the time? Do youself and all of us a favor man, SLOW DOWN and/or TAKE PLENTY OF BREAKS!!!

    Don't go and burn out on us, ok?

    Re: Here we go again...

    Hi, sorry for being a total noob but I have a quick question. I have been thinking of making myself an armor set, and the idea of making one out of steel like you are doing is pretty cool, I am wondering, what tools would I need, how hard is it, and were did you get the steel? Also, how did you make your helmet? I have been looking arround for threads but I keep getting lost in all the sub-forums and everything lol


    (FYI your armor and helmet look totally awesome!)

    Re: Here we go again...

    Hey mate! No problem! We all needed a place to start!

    I'm using for the armour 18ga steel. Many people use thicker with better results, but I was flat broke. The method I use to form the steel is Beviin's, which can be found here:
    http://www.youtube.com/user/BeviinVerhayc
    For the helmet, I would look in the Boba Helmet section and check out the stickies there, there's some really great info.

    Tools are listed in the video and cost is around $100 for them and the metal.

    Hope this helps!

    Re: Here we go again...

    There was some mention in this thread of a lightwip or swords. If your mando is somewhat melee oriented you might want to make a neck-ring or collar piece for fighting jedi, when boba fett had a beskar armor set made for him in one of the recent novel series a neck-ring was part of the set, so it is canon ^^

    just an idea : )

    Re: Here we go again...

    lol...SCA, perhaps not...but the next person who goes "what is this made of" and punches me is gonna be in some pain...every time I troop SOMEONE has to hit the mando...

    I got my stuff painted today (what I have done so far) and I tried something new; I left the metal slightly oily (didnt wipe it all off) and the paint is starting to chip...it's amazing!!! so now I'm going to go back and sand all my other plates, re-oil them, then paint them to get that "real" chipped look.


    A'den

    The next day:
    OK vode, LFL has a nation wide event going on October 10th. Break out the whips. I need to haul shebs and get this set done before then...
