    A heavy mando would be one who wears a suit of armor that almost completely closes him up. In other words around 75% or more of your body is going to be covered by armor.

    Re: how to make a heavy mando

    That would be basically:

    Chest
    Belly
    Back
    Shoulders
    Helmet
    Cod
    Gauntlets
    Thighs
    Knees
    Boots
    Shins

    and whatever else you can stick on there.

    Re: how to make a heavy mando

    i think it would be more than that to be honest.

    boba fett is an excellant example of light mandalorian armor
    jango fett, which is more or less what ordeyn described, is the template for medium armor
    a good template for a light-heavy armor would be akin to the coverage of a neocrusader mando... full lower leg cover, knee's, thigh plates, full torso coverage, bicep coverage, elbows and full lower arm coverage. of course with a helmet. you could even say a template such as jango's with the addition of bicep armor, a kama and a pauldron would be a good light heavy. i consider my set thigh plates short of being light-heavy. it's more of a heavy-medium
    a real heavy armor would be something like the clone troopers wear, full coverage except joints, even those are usually armored but not so heavily as to completly impair movement. of course, clone armor is not mandalorian armor but, it's based on it. so that type of coverage would be a good example/template for full on heavy armor.

    Well, you'd better go find some treads for shoes and a GIANT barrel.

    Re: how to make a heavy mando

    I agree with our first three correspondents (excuse my lack of direct referencing) in that heavy mandalorian armor will more or less be covering the entirety of your body in addition to the possibility of having several accessories. You should expect a full body suit - not exactly built for quick or excessive movement.
    In fact, pardon me if I seem blunt, but a heavy suit seems somewhat impractical as far as convention usage or really much else goes. It would appear rather inconvenient in the ways of general use. Why the desire for a heavy mando?

    would it be safe to say a "heavy mandalorian" armor might be in the same class and look as a republican comando armor?

    Re: how to make a heavy mando

    i think ill do like jango but close up the thighs and shins in the back for a full case,

    do a bi-plate
    maybe habd armor, and a heavier pauldron on one side and maybe like a boba pauldron on the other. so basically a light heavy i guess ill add lots of extra pieces, and i was even thinking that i might armor one side heavier than the other with a collar of sheet metal on one side so that would be cool.

    Re: how to make a heavy mando

    The first thing that popped into my mind was Durge...

    then I had the idea of a Punisher or EOD type suit, with the full coverage chest and shoulder armor, the beefy collar plates that cover the neck, A good set of wrap around thigh plates, reinforce and merge the shin and knee plates and of course the shin plates should also wrap around the calves. I also think that there should be something between the shoulders and the forearms. Biceps and elbows absolutely must be covered. Once you have all of that armor on, a HEAVY mando needs something like a chaingun or a minigun linked to a backpack power source.
