One thing I've been wanting to see is someone include a visor to their helmet, similar to scout troopers. A paintball mask visor might work nicely.
lol, i hope no one reading this has epilepsy
also just for thinking for contrast, aswell as doing a dark grey around the helmet mandibles, could instill a chrome tinted visor?if thats what its called, like a one way mirror visor! which would contrast well with the rest of the bucket!
i think its called two-way mirrored acrylic if anybody could help me locate a supplier/retailer in the uk that sells sheets of it i would be really greatfull!

[quote=609th asfod;267447]that raises another issue, should i have a helmet with or without the rangefinder?, if i go without it gives me an excuse to wear a huge cloak like darth mauls!!! with the hood up hiding the mando armor and sniper rifle, also wasnt walon vau a bit of a sociopath, likethe monk from mean machine just in mando armor lol!

THE MONK ROCKS !
Thanks UNtried =D I knew I had seen one somewhere.

If you are wanting an idea of what all black armor will look like I've got some pics of my armor up. I've done Walon Vau from the republic commando series with the help of Karen Traviss through e-mail correspondance.

i also think a dark colour scheme is good
While the black scheme is nice...I think it's becoming very over-done.
Stealth doesn't necessary mean "black on black". Just like camo doesn't mean leaf or realtree.
There are TONS of color combination that work well in the dark: Dark reds, greens, blues, and browns are extremely nice working and practical for night running mandos. Something else to think about is doing a "Dazzle" pattern on your armor. Basically creating multiple shapes of color on your kit to break up your outline. This works well for anyone out in the open, in urban areas, or even fliers. Below is a pic from a WW2 era ship with dazzle camo.
Not that you'll do this but the SAS used a pink landrover for years that blended in in desert environments and was almost invisible to the naked eye at night.
Just a random peice of info.
that dazzle hurts my head
Thats the idea. It makes your eyes work, and is probably some of the best open-range camo available...even 100 years later.
HOW ABOUT A CARBON FIBER FETT???
That would be uber cool!!! black soft parts and carbon fiber armor....yepp...that would just blow my mind...
