    Hi everyone! I am new to the boards, kind of.....I would like to show what i am working on. I see that this picture was shown on another thread, but for the girl (wife) and. (This is Trash Can Armor )





    I am giving him the Name Makan Pyralis since he doesnt have a name yet.






    I am debating doing the X and the skull, i did it before and didn't like it. So i sanded it off and painted over it.





    I am not sure if you can notice that I modified it to be my own symbol. From a water drop to a leave and and ever that symbol was on the bottom i changed.





    And a starting weapon, i will not keep this...my friend Fosterkeri pointed it out so i grapped it. I am gunna make a couple of weapons and choose from them.



    Please tell me what you think!

    Nice work, but your armor seems a little more orange than red. At least to my eyes the comic armor seems more red. I would get rid of that dent though, especially since the comic one doesn't have one. As much damage as a Mando would take, a bunch of them having the same dent justs seems off. It's a must for Boba, not so for others.

    I like it, I see you've opted for keeping the dent, also. It's very similar to mine, except the color on the helmet is reversed(kinda). I really like where you're going with this, are you atempting the female armor for a significant other, perhaps?

    It does look orange in the picture, but it looks more red in person. The dent in the helmet is just there for now, i am going to get a better helmet to use...this is just a temp.

    For the female, I am not saying anything definte right now, but i would like to do a music video fan film with this scene in it.

    Looks awesome Makan...keep up the good work and keep us posted with progress pics. IMO...I'd add the X and the skull back on the helmet...it would definately add something most customs don't have. I also agree with Remo...loose the dent...hehe. Glad to see you aboard

    For weathering, i used warhammer paint and a small paint brush.


    Thanks fosterkeri. It will need help and it needs alot of work.


    I really need some quantlets, but i don't have a lot of money.

    Looks great so far! I had the same idea for the Nerf gun. Now I know what it looks like!

    Your armor will look a lot more like the pic if you spotmist and mist the edges in a red/black mix with an airbrush. The red will look more blood-color and less cheery red. Looks great, though.

    Even just a plain old black wash will tone it down. It looks like a good start.

    And yes, lose the dent on the helmet.

    sorry i didnt see that earlier....i picked mine up at target, but i have seen them at walmart, toys"r"us, and anywhere else that sells nerf guns. And like was said, they cost about $10.

    Nerf N-Strike Maverick

    I do want to remove the dent, but that will come in time, but i never thought of a was. I am a high school student (about to grad) and an art student at that, and it never crossed my mind. Thanks for the tip!

    That, and it'll probably get cancelled soon anyway; I used to subscribe to that Star Wars Galaxy magazine. It changed to Star Wars Collector, and died after producing a few issues. The moment I subscribe to Insider, it'll probably get cancelled

    Idk, with them making the TV show in Jan and the 2 cartoons, i think it will be there for a while. Plus, they know they can't do no wrong with star wars, so.....yea i think it will be there for a long time.

    Galaxies was a crying shame. I was on the chilastra server. I was in the SHN when the CU came around, and it destroyed the guild. that really hurt, loosing friends like that. And then with the new one, I stopped playing on Nov 1st, me and my exgirlfriend broke up (ah, high school drama) and being upset i didnt want to play, so i took a break. At this point in time no one knew about the change coming up...then on Nov 25 or so i turned it on to see what everyone was up to and to my surprise the game was completely different. I am not saying i will not give the game a chance, becuase i would love to, but my computer cannot handle it anymore and all my money is going into this costume. Some day tho...

    I never played the game; I meant the old Star Wars Galaxy magazine, which was back when the Special Editions were hitting theaters, and speculation about the prequels was everywhere. It changed to Star Wars Collector, but fizzled out soon after TPM hit theaters.

    Actually I think that Star Wars Insider is improving and becoming more popular, and well written and organized. I especially like the EU stories, in particular last months issue dealing with Kal'buir and the Null ARCs/RC's after Triple Zero. I'll go no further as I'd hate to spoil the story for you, but I highly recommend reading it if possible...The only issue with subscribing to Insider is that it costs $39.95 a year, plus you're a member of the fan club and yada,yada,yada-but I still find it pricey...Oh yeah, nice paintwork on your bucket etc...
