eh... a lil too much modding ner vod
Eh, i dunno. Kinda makes it look like a STEYR.
eh... not real fond of the wrap under grips and such. IF I wanted something like that I'd start with a Tavor or a Styer AUG. I kinda want to maintain that collapsible stock... that's a big comfort point of the M4 base.
Hey A'd'ika any progress on my buy'ce?
Hmm, i guess. I like the STEYR's paintball-gun looks.
Yeah, we have some progress...I'll get some pics up here soon...
And I have the pics of my armour you wanted...they are just trapped on the camera at the moment...
lmao that's cool... I just need something to do the next 2-3 days... I have a break in training and they don't have anything for me to do... Spokane's nice, but I've already been all over downtown...lmao
So I got a quick sneak peak at the story Pacx is writing for me... this story is AMAZING!!! I think it could be his best work yet and I cannot wait to see the whole legend of Kal Waco!
ok I'm sitting here on pins and needles waiting to hear something on my story or my buy'ce! lol
hey vode I need help again... everybody do me a favor... whilst u're browsing around the net, keep an eye out for a cheap airsoft M4 in usable form. I need a springer or a cheap gun that can be cut up and repainted to make my carbine. I just need the receivers and stock to be in good shape, anything forward of that will be cut away anyhow.
Man this story is taking longer than I thought, I'm only on the part during the Vong War and it's already 2 pages 0_0
wow! it really will be a legend! lmao
2 page 0.0 lucky Kal! ill keep an eye out for you man
It'll definitely be 3 pages... Wow,im good.
Hey Pacx ever considered writing a book? youd be good at it. I'd definatly pay you to turn my story into a full book
Wayii!!! 3 Pages! Wow! I must be a war hero! lol
I've already written a few books, won a prize for one.
Heck yeah Kal! Kal Waco will go down in history!
if you *were* going to do something like i suggested, how much would it cost?
Are any of your books available anywhere? If they are ill have to go pick one up
hey Pacx, can you do one on my Dark jedi Mando, I put a basic bit of info on his back ground on my thread.
Pacx you could write the Mandalorian Legends ner vod... get Lucas to publish it... make us all canon! lol
What books have you written? are any of them available anywhere we could find them?
@ Alpha: Hmm, I dunno. I don't think it would be worth it, really.
@ Adonian: But of course, I'll get on it. Do I have a deadline?
@ Kal: Hah, that would be awesome! Lucas would lap it up like a cat laps milk.... hmm....
I wrote The Dream, Invictus, and Fist.
@ Kal + Alpha - they were published but only for a limited time and are subsequently not in print any more, but I'm sure there'll be one on Ebay.
Ill have to check it out then
and i agree with kals idea
Copy I'll check out ebay... maybe amazon... hey Pacx check out my art thread, look at my battle sketch I'm workin' on maybe that will help u out with your story
me always getting hurt Makes me reckless i guess
lol I guess
Im just hoping i took down a lot of guys before i took the wound
well it's the extraction so... mission complete, u can assume u did well I guess! lol
Ok good. I'll check the sketch Kal.
Adonian, I'm on it. Expect it soon.
Wayii!!! can't wait ner vod... Oya Pacx!

How about an imaginary hug? feel any better brother?
ha ha sorry lev'ika but I need intelectual stimuli! lmao 'preciate the effort tho ner vod!
Sorry all i got
lmao u're too funny ner vod. u said u're working on a group sketch? how big of a sketch?
Well unfortuneatly the only sketch book i could afford atm was a 2 dollar one at Dollarama so its about the size of a normal sheet of paper. As for whos in it. Itll be the members of Vanel Shadow
hey I prefer the 11.5x8.5" sketchpads, easier to scan. besides, it's not difficult to scan multiple pages into a single sketch.
true, im just used to bigger
lol wow... so to speak! lmao
ive got a question for you Kal, as you can see with my recent sketchs. Im having difficuty with drawing hands. :/ Any suggestive help you could give me?

well think about... um... MANDOS!! maybe thatll work or PATRICK!!!! ive got the perfect pictures to cheer you up!!
argh!!! lol btw lev'ika... how much more do u have to go on ur armor?
stupid computers acting up.. sorry about the double post
HAHA.. um armor, pretty much everything. C1RCAs shipping me fiberglass armor. Hes giving me The chest, stomach, shoulder bells, and back plate. So that means i still have to make the knee armor, Shin, cod peice, and gauntlets
yeah the knees are difficult. I am having a hard time with it.
Well C1RCA showed me an excelt tutorial on youtube. He takes PVC pipe (i forget what size) He cut a line down it. Then heats and shapes it to the right size. And adds the size things. I plan on doing it that way
Some thing else that works really well is hard hats. Take those and cout out of each end a plate and viola! a pair of knee caps!
hmmm that could work!
yeps. Check out these guys:
Solus and Ca-loar have hard hat knees.
PROOF READ: CLEARED FOR PUBLIC RELEASE - KAL WACO (TO BE FINISHED)
Kal Waco – A Prudii Publishing Biography
Commissioned by Kal’ika
Kal Waco was born on the outskirts of Coronet, Corellia’s capital city, on a small, rural farm. From a young age, he was exposed to smuggling, thievery, bounty hunting and crime. He met travelers who had come from every corner of the Galaxy to the lawless planet, and had a rapport with many Bounty Hunters. He learnt how to avoid a bad deal, or spot a trick early on. Another thing he was taught was the importance of family, something important not just for Corellians, but for Mandalorians too. He held the utmost respect for his family and the family of others, something which would show during his time as a bounty hunter.
When he turned 16, his father took him to Mandalore after telling him about his true Mandalorian heritage. He began his training, and was placed with 2 other cadets, Matulaak Dha’tor and Hettyc Ures-Aaray, neither of which completed the entire course. Kal was commended by his training sergeant, Tracyn’la Abiik, and was one of the 4 cadets to receive the Mandalorian Cadet Service Medal, which Kal kept in the breast pocket of his flightsuit.
After graduating, Kal spent most of his time wandering the Mandalore System, acquiring many weapons and exotic pelts. One of his favourites was the Mandalorian repeating blaster, famed for its use by Canderous Ordo during the Mandalorian Wars at the time of the Old Republic. He was once quoted as saying ‘The only thing better than a big blaster is, apparently, one that shoots faster’. He customized the blaster to his own standards, affixing red-dot laser sights, flip-up peep sights and a silencer and stock.
When Kal turned 17, he learned of the Republic victory on Geonosis, and, upon hearing Jango Fett himself, a Mandalorian Kal had long admired, had been the genetic template for the clone troopers, he decided to venture to Kamino and offer his services as a training sergeant. Kal was both feared and respected by his protégés, and his training style was unorthodox compared to many of the non-Mandalorian trainers. He used his own experiences from his own training days to turn the clones he taught into veritable battlefield machines, teaching them the functions of both their weaponry and the enemy’s. After the chief trainer, Walon Vau, heard of Kal Waco’s exploits, he asked the young sergeant if he would consider training the Republic’s elite corps, the Republic Commandos. Kal eagerly agreed, and trained many Commando units, including Alpha Squad. He trained Commandos for the rest of the war, until Order 66 came through. After the Galactic Empire established rule in the Galaxy, Kal moved back to Corellia, where he met a young girl called Fi. Eventually they married, and Kal taught his wife the ways of the Mando’ade. He crafted her a set of armour himself, carving a small heart on the inside of the chest plate.
Eventually, after months of serving the Empire, Kal decided to leave Imperial service, taking several young officers under his command with him. Together, they established a small outpost on Corellia, near Kolene, a major city known for its glittering palisades where passing tourists would be conned into buying cheap trinkets at ludicrously jacked up prices. Once, a con-man and 3 Gamorrean associates knocked on Kal’s door, threatening him with death if he didn’t buy what they were offering. After the threat, Kal took a small dagger from his belt and sent 2 of the three Gamorreans running and squealing in terror, as their master and friend lay rotting in the dust on his doorstep.
With his clan, Kal successfully hunted over 300 bounties, earning himself and his companions a small fortune in both Credits and weaponry. A notable bounty was the case of Balosar fugitive Zirk Meragotta, wanted by Tyber Zaan for leaking secrets to the Empire. He found Meragotta on Sullust, and gunned him down before beating him to death with his own hands. After their reputation spread, Kal and his group were contracted by the Empire to hunt down and kill a group of Rebel leaders based on Dantooine. Kal tracked the Rebels to their hide out but were overwhelmed after a long and tiresome firefight with Rebel soldiers, and placed into cryostasis. After the Empire heard of this, they hired Boba Fett to retrieve the bounty and, in doing so, found the squad in a bacta tank, frozen. He released them, having noticed their Mandalorian armour, and having retrieved the bounty, gave them a ride back to Corellia.
During the first weeks of the Vong wars, the squad were in more and more demand for increasingly dangerous missions. Eventually, they were hired by Boba himself to join the elite ranks of his air support coordination squads and also as a boarding party tasked with defending against piracy and smuggling. The squad stayed behind during the evacuation of one of the core worlds to provide CAS coordination and protect the thousands of refugees at risk. There, they killed dozens of Vong warriors in both personal combat and close quarters combat before being wounded, and again placed in crystasis due to the high risk they presented to the Vong. Supreme Overlord Shimrrar ordered the warriors to focus on every effort on the squad due to the high kill counts.
Just wait till Kal gets on hes gonna be crazy about this haha
I like it, when do the rest of us come in?
Later, after the Vong Wars
ok looking forward to it
so after you finish Kals youre gonna work on mine a little bit right :P
Wayii!!! Pacx that's amazing! Kandosii ner vod!!! I love it! The story is amazing! Well written, well phrased... I can't think of any thing I'd change ner vod.
Glad you like it Vod. I'll add a plenary at the end and BOOM BANG theres a bio.
sounds great can't wait ner vod
hey vode! I found a nice little spring M4 at walmart... it's a Crossman "stinger" I think with some work it'll do nicely for my carbine, plus I'll still be able to shoot it when I get bored! lol
heh Alpha i feel bad for you, your dad controls the paypal, I (since i am the only one "Savvy" in that Area, I control the Paypal (and its my bank account sooooooooooo its kinda obligatory)
KAL Lemme be in the Bio Please pleeeeeease!
I fought with the Mandalorian Protectors During the clone wars So i was a long upstanding Fighter (later put in Cryostasis during the war by a Republic commando because he didn't want to kill a mandalorian, I'm spoiling the story aren't I)

he he I was on the other side in the Clone Wars... fought alongside my own unit of specially trained Clone jumptroopers, the 81st Airborne Company. I'm workin' on a whole backstory for the unit (which is NOT cannon, but there's so many non-cannon units out there...lol), as part of that story and possibly an alternative to my standard armor/rifle... I came up with these special mods to my armor (that can be added/removed) and a special model of the Deece I call it the DC-15A2... let me know what you guys think... I kinda want to make this carbine and the upgrade kit just incase I decide I want to be the airborne mando that day.
Kal, Are you trying to copy me and my specially Trained Squad of ARC troopers, which then i later Join the mandalorian protectors, which i get Stasised When one of my ARC's find me
Yeah, Kal's copying you, not like he's been here for 11 months and has 100X more posts than you
Very creative helmet design! You're really putting alot of work into it it. I'm sure it'll turn out great no matter what you decide on.
why thank you Little Fett!
@Zuka: I've been workin' on mine for a while. Actually the 81st Airborne predates my mando armor projects, so really I'm just adding my mando into the story I had for my clone that I was originally going to do.
I WAS going to do either an ARC Lt, a Commander Cody or an Airborne Clone... decided to try my hand at making up stories for a clone unit. I'll try to find the story I wrote, since I'm using it for my comic book I'm working on. lol
I was multiplying his post count to yours
love the wings Kal looks totally sweet ner vod.
@Ad'ika: yeah I know... just so proud of my post count now I had to make a comment.
@Jas'ika: yeah that's the upgrades that I'll be using that special buy'ce for! lol The problem is I'm not sure how I'm going to make the jump pack
I like the wings Kal! very nice.
Pax: Is Invictus about a robot?
thanks saber! they're kinda a special touch I added just because I wanted one of those buckets Jason was making! lol... still going to be using my special build from A'd'ika as my primary tho, since it's being custom built to my specs
SaberMaker: Nope. It didn't receive much publicity worldwide, more of a regional thing, Wasn't exactly a chart breaker.
And here I thought i'd found it on google. bummer.
yeah I still haven't found any of his stuff on amazon... hadn't tried google tho
so I'm trying to work up the knee and shin armor for my armor... I need some help finding the right pattern and materials. So...
1. ANYONE, can somebody please help me find the templates for the Halo3 ODST shin armor. I also need templates for the DC-15A to work on.
2. I have plenty of cardboard to build the shins/knees and footplates but... I need to know what the resin is that I've been seeing A'd'ika and a few others talk about.
3. Like I said, I have plenty of cardboard, so I'm going to start rebuilding my gaunts... any advice would be helpful, especially with the attaching of the hinges and with making the pred claws.
1. H3 ODST is somewhere in here I think...
DC-15a might be in here somewhere...not quite sure...
Go to wally world and ask for fibreglass resin. should be in a green...or white and red...rectangular can...like this:
3. I have no idea...

Are you talking something like this?
Then I would say make the top half like a soccer shin pad, then put the blade housing on top and glue into place with hot glue. Then put the side fins on from front to back and the fourth fin looks attached to the top box.
Bondo and glass, smooth it all off, add your greeblies and blade and you're away.
To attach the hinges try rivets.
@A'den: thanks ner vod! I'll start working on my leg/cod/gaunts this week
@Saz: yeah Saz that's kinda what I'm goin' for... I'm hoping to split the blades one to each side of the trishot on my left gaunt... I'm left handed so most of my accuracy/muscle control requiring weaposn are going on that side. Thanks for the help! I appreiciate it I'll be working on the blades shortly.
OK Next question... is the resin in liquid form or is it a paste/goop like the bondo glass was? More importantly right now tho... what program am I supposed to use to open those .pdo files? NEVERMIND... I found the program thanks to google! lol
Last edited by kal'ika; 12-01-2009 at 01:54 PM.
Resin is a thick liquid...like syrup. Gets everywhere.
lmao ok, thanks ner vod... printing and cutting the patterns tnoight I hope
vod! You're gettin started! cant wait for some pics
lol I'll keep that in mind
okay printed the templates on standard paper... I'm going to be cuttin' the templates out and stickin' 'em to some cardboard and get the pieces cut out to build up. Also, I have all the parts now to get my M4-esque rifle put together... just need to get the dremel out and get to work I guess.
Then get to it man we want to see that baby!
