    I think the chest plate looks a great deal like what would be used in the KOTOR era. It looks similar to the chest plate used by the Mandalorian that steals Campers ship in KOTOR issues 9-11 (I think those are right)...Anyway, that's the direction i'd go in-or at least you may want to look into it seriously...

    i agree with Asylum, its r-painted armor and sorry doesn;t seem right. What i think you could do is keep it, repaint it all solid black or grey or what ever color you want your FLACK VEST, then put mando armor on top. i know its alot o armor but hey its heavy, and you get the same old mandalorian armor look and feel.
    repainting a chest peice seems... well i saw it, laphed a litttle and though someone was trying for a very cheap outfit......

    sorry if its insulting. no malice. maybe i need to see the rest of the armor first?

    o and modify the gun, i to know the gun (from SG1) and still looks like a slug thrower to me.

    I've got to say that whilst I can see what you are trying to do, it just doesn't quite work for me. Taking snowtrooper armour and painting it with the shapes seems a little like you are trying to cut some corners. I realise this is not the case and that you are trying something new, but fans won't know that. A better approach would be to have a chestplate with the detail molded in.

    The P90 is a good choice but I agree it needs some work before anyone is going to look at it and see a blaster and not "those guns for Stargate SG1". The Asylum's suggestion is good, whilst Toragh's has the excellent advantage of being an actual screen used blaster!

    As regards to calling it a Mandalorian Commando, the only flaw there is that regular Mando's are Mandalorian SuperCommando's

    Please note that I am not trying to be offensive, cause trouble, start an arguement or the like, but simply to be helpfull and offer my advice and experiance

    That I like armor a whole lot. And the gun finally looks like something that's not a P90.

    Also on any 'Star Wars' weapon scopes are a must, but not modern dot scopes. The star wars scopes tend to be more of the skinny long scopes. Even cheaper bb gun scopes would work well. And in the vein of chewbacca's bowcaster and zam wessel's rifle, more then one scope only makes it better!
    The look of the p-90 might be even more different if it had a skinny scope.

    I think you may be steering to far from the Mando Concept. I understand that all mandos have heritage and armor markings and cuts that are unique to them, their mission and their clans, but the still have the seperate pieces. Something doesnt sit right about it.

    Now if you were to use a clone chest plate, that might work for both looks and back story.

    Well, since some clones supposedly stayed with the Empire, some may have used that armor when it came into service. Then a family member of the clone or that clone himself took his armor and customized it. Still Mando worthy.

    Plus, the Galactic Marines (Clone Troopers) wore the predecessor to that armor.
    Here's a costume of one:GM
