XLNT work Vod.
the ear piece was made out of thick card, and im going to coat the whole thing in pva glue to harden it up! im glad everyone likes the design!
Niiiiiice...BACK TO WORK!
is that all you can say boomer, after all that work you say one word and expect me to just accept it? (thanks though! )
amazing. inside the rough exerior that is boomer fett, there is...more agression! big suprise!
i am going to start work on the left ear piece tonight, and will try and post some pics later. sorry if i keep seeking approval, but i do like to know that my ideas are good, and not complete osik!
Yup! Good stuff! Nuff Said!!! Less chat, more sweat!
Kyr'am, your ideas and work are AWESOME!!! You (along with Boomer) keep me very entertained!!!
C'mon it's been like 13 hours, and NO UPDATE?!?!
Swish Crack ZZZZZZZZTT
we do make an interesting double act! how about it boomer? the first mando comedy slapstick routine?
My wit and your skills.....intriguing.....
I DO LIKE THE THOUGHT OF A SLAP AND A STICK!!! BACK TO WORK!!!!
Looking good, like the designs man.
Kyr'am's been slacking, I think he need's a little prompting..
Swish CRACK ZZZZZZZZZTTT.
Kyr'am, have you survived your cold?
We wanna' update.
I'm over here banging my head against the wall waiting to see your progress, I like what I've seen so far.
WE WANT PICS! WE WANT PICS! WE WANT PICS! WE WANT PICS!
im working on it. sister moving house and helping her out. plus cash flow problems aint helping! im sorry its taking a while
AH, yes I am in the same cash boat as you, hope the flow begins to increase so we both can have easy sailing..
I gotta hold off on my stuff 'till tax return, I'm runnin dry on cash right now.
But keep up the GREAT work, I really like what you have planned, and really hope to see your JP come to life mate.
Oh yeah, one for the road...
SWISH CRACK ZZZZZZZZZZTTTTTT
Doode! That is some aseriously sweet beskar'gam! Loving the redesigned earcap to go with the visor. Its good to see some people mixing it up here and there, redefining what can be done for a custom.
Keep up the good work
Kyr'am has gone missing, he hasn't posted anything since Jan 27. I wish he would respond to my pm, wondering if all is well... If anyone know's him personally, check up on him, I wanted to see this bucket become a reality.
sorry about the delay ner vod, been busy with bounties in the outer rim. things still hecktic, but once this rough patch has passed, ill be back to work on the bucket.
it has to get done before summer! im determined of that!
Your back vod!!! YIPEY!!!
Welcome back Vod, now back to work
Swish crack ZZZZZZZZZZZZttt
Adonain, play nice...
*chants "pics" silently*
ADONIAN!!!! Dont kill the fellow!!! Give him time to recover from your last beating before ya hit him again!!!
And Ordeyn, I'm chanting too...
Alright, but I'm keepin it ready.
I have laughed all through this post. I have admired all through this post. The concepts are really nice, and the builds are excellent. You truly do have skills, Kyr'am. Btw, where did you all pick up the mando terms. Is there a way to learn the mando language? If so, can someone let me know where?
YEAH!! BOOMER'S BACK!!!
YIPEY!!! I knew Boomer would show up soon!!!
You need to stop with the Slack-Jawed "Outer Rim" EXCUSES! Take your over-talented and under used hands out to the shop and ENTERTAIN BOOMER!!!!! PICS! MULTIPLE! COLOR! DETAILED!!! PICS!!!!! BLEED FOR BOOMER!!!!BLEEEEEEED!!!!!
lol, all i can say is that your design is frikken awesome man.
could really do with a new helmet as a base though. the one i built out of card and fiberglass isnt as smooth as id like, and could anybody recommend a good place to get a blank "canvas" as it were? would still keep the ear design, im really proud of the look of it.
will be back to building asap boomer, and when i do, look out. the first target for the harpoon missiles will be your oversised mouth, ner vod!
THX for the PM Vod, glad to know everything is goin smooth.
We'll be watching you
I gotta change the batteries in my laser whip so no beatings for now
and now on with the show
no progress on the physical helmet as of yet, but i have found a small bit of down time and drawn this concept pic. Both are from the Reek clan, and it also uses the mask design i made before.
who knows, i may write some mando stories about these two, or if someone would be interested in makeing the other armour, they are more than welcome to do it.
hope you all like them.
OH SNAP THAT IS AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i have made a slight alteration to my own armour, in that there are now plates on the back of the palm, but stil nothing on the fingers in this variation. i like it and think it will make its way into the final build (if i ever get a chance to do any)
its depressing how much worki have yet to dom and yet i have no space to work on it, no materials to do any progress, and no time to do anything. all i can do is draw pictures of what i think it will look like, and its making me more depressed 'cos i want to see it physically, but cant do anything about it! life sucks!
I know what you mean Vod, I use my trash cans as a work bench along with the top of the trunk of my car.
I only got a chance today to put a little fiberglass on the mandables for reinforcement.
This one only has a little fiberglass in important places so it wont be so thick.
You can do it, just do what you can when you can. Any progress is better than none at all.
Remember the only way to eat a Bantha is one bite at a time
:thumbup:thumbup:thumbup Kyr'am, your stuff is amazing!!! Glad to have you back to work vod!!!
i decided today, i have far too much stuff on leading up to easter, so im putting everything on hold, (except for more concept pics) and once easter weekend is out of the way, im restarting the helmet from scratch. still keeping the design ideas (the ear that everyone seems to like. the scout trooper hood, the fin) but i realised that when i fiberglassed it, i didnt add the layer of filler on top to smooth it out. (recomended in the instructions!)
so i am going to start it again, and take my time with it.
hope you will all stick with me.
I AM WITH YOU!!!
Just keep munching on that bantha Ky'ram! Chew as slow as you need... Don't go swimming untill a half hour after that meat slides down your throat. You are doing great vod!
OH.....MY..........GOD. Dude what did your mom do when she was pregnant this is freakin amazing
as far as i know, she said "get this little****************************** out of me!" but thats just a guess!
many thanks for the praise, vod. its nearly easter, and once its over with i can start on my armour anew! starting with the helm i think. this time im gonna take it slow and patient! thats the main problem i have.
keep grinding your heel into the faces of the aruetiise, ner vod!
C'mon, we want to see some progress. Don't let us down....
Progress!!! Progress!!! Progress!!!
yeah 2 weeks is a little long... SWISH CRACK ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT
WORK FOR OUR ENJOYMENT
Besides, your ideas are much better than mine.
As c'mon adonian! You've got plenty of good ideas! Purple is a goooooood color.
Ky'ram, BEAUTIFUL WORK! I demand more.
just to keep you happy, (as ive not made any physical progress with armour) i did draw a completely new character using a modified clone helmet and mando armour, and a little artisitc licence. if anybody would like to try and make it, they can with my blessing. but it must have the reek clan emblem somewhere!
I LOVE the BOW, that's a KILLER IDEA, talk about silent assassin.
haha...bows are hardly silent...but still, the idea is awesome!!! I like the punch spikes on the bow...
hey guys. long time no post i know. i'm sorry. been a rough couple of months and had no luck with progress or money or time. things not been too good round here, but thought id just maybe post another concept idea. still trying to get "Kyr'am" built, but also expanding on the "Reek clan" members. you guys have already seen the twi'lek lady and the bowman, but today i had an idea for a tracker mando. hope you guys like it, and will try and make some progress.
hope you guys are still interested. sorry
I like it, especially the scratches on the bucket, like mine and A'den, well more like A'den, mine are single scratches running different directions, while yours and A'den are in group of 3, going single direction.
So, making a bucket like this one should be easy for you.
Keep us updated, and welcome back.
well i have two helmets to make (remaking the "Kyr'am" bucket as was too impatient and didnt get a smooth finish) and will make both at the same time. should slow me down sufficiently to do a good job of both. If anyone can think of a name for the tracker mando, i would gladly accept suggestion.
really like the scratch idea as it looks like he was tracking someone at night and was set upon. Think his colours are going to be dark blue with a bit of red, and a dark brown jacket with black vest and trousers. (notice the constant in all my designs, the extra leather shoulder plates)
thanks for the possitive coment vod.

it will be when its done! the summer deadline has seemed to have passed and im totally p*ssed off about it. but i guess if i can get both new helms done by the end of the year ill be happy, and maybe some work on "Kyr'am"'s backpack would be good.
How about Kyr'am Prudii (Death Shadow) or Dha A'den (Dark Rage/Wraith)?
any thing new? besides you being mad bout ur dead line?
embrace death, vod, if you fear it, you will be beaten by the auretiise! No mando lives forever, but their legends will!
i like Dha A'den as a name. fits with the whole steathy nature of his work! Kandosi Adonian. Vor'e.
Reek clan: Kyr'am Galaar - demolitions expert and heavy artilliery
Dah A'den - tracker and sniper
vor'e again Adonian
started on the domes for both helms today. only the basic shape formers, but doing both at the same time is slow but also fullfiling!
Love the concept art of the tracker Mando. Mind if I use the robe idea? Good luck with those helmets! And keep us posted!
no worries, go ahead. its more of a western style coat than a robe, like old gunslingers used to have. i dont mind if you want to use any of my ideas. go for it. you'd probably make a better job of it than me anyway
I've been looking through this forum for a week or so and I got the impression this was a friendly place . . . then I read this thread and all I can say is WOW these people sure do make you work hard
But I guess all this slave driving has resulted in some cool armor. I particularly like the bucket with the visor. . .kind of scout trooper-mando hybrid, nice.
Keep it up.
its actually a concept i saw a picture of which was a commander cody mando mix. it looked sooo awesome i decided to try it. hopefully i can make the armour look as good in reality (when i eventually finish it)
well here is the start of both dome sections.
the tracker mando will have a sort of lobster tail armoured back to it, and the Kyr'am helmet has the fin but with a new redesigned vent system look under it.
hope people like the ideas
Oh YEAH, I like it (them) I really like the layered one, it looks like it will fold into its self.
Nice! Yea, layered one looks pretty sweet. I love the fin on yours. Very stealthy I guess would be the word.
glad you like them vod. gonna try and do the rest of the dome tonight
Glad to see you back to Kyr'am!!! And with updates!!!
feels good to be back
hey again. just a short note to say ive started a new threat after taking far too long off the project. reverted back to the original Kyr'am idea,with an altered helmet. hope boomer aint too pissed with me and cracks out the whip again
If he don't I will.
Gonna search for your new thread.
