    Jul 25, 2007, 8:19 PM - My bloodied armor #1

    some of you mercs have seen it
    thought id share it with TDH


    thats only half the belt, the other side is very similar...on top are the knee pads


    close up of the chest pieces without the shoulders


    with the shoulders, and part of the cape(and half a farside comic )


    part of the left gauntlet and a glove(gauntlet hasnt had the rest of the pieces put on)







    the reason everything is bloodied is because my mando character is a scout combat medic, which is why there is more blood on the glove and gauntlets than on the armor itself
    its mostly friendly blood


    oh and the "blood" is dark red spray paint mixed with a touch of black
    the splatter i did with by flicking my fingers after dipping them in the paint
    the smears are obviously from finger smearing

    thanks for looking...comments? concerns?

    Looks good. The blood looks pretty fresh, though. Did you want it to look like that?

    haha as a medic, the blood is always fresh


    another question for you all

    with or without leggings?





    those arent the shoes for my armor, they just are the most comfortable to take on and off while im interchanging between leg pieces and none...boots are inconvenient when it comes to that

    so what do you all think?

    if i go with leggings, im gonna have to size them smaller and bend up inward a little

    nicely done. i had a few dabs of red paint from paint ball that stayed on my armour for quite some time. it really goes well with the battle damage i think.

    Yes. The legs look too...uhh...poofy without it on.

    Nice to know the medic washes between surgeries.

    thanks a lot for the compliments guys
    they definitely go a long way


    so it looks like the general consensus would be to size up my leg armor and make it look like the rest, eh?

    thanks, pesh

    i was actually thinking of doing that to the helmet when i finally get to working on it, pizza

    but i dunno...its hard to test that sort of stuff when you work so hard to make it look presentable

    Thats awesome I thought about addding a few blood splatters on my Boba boots since I'm sure he kicks a lot of people with those spikes. I always thought blood would be a nice addition to a mando. The medic is a good idea as well.

    Looking good! Are you gonna add any symbols / Medic style markings on your armor / helmet? Definatley with the leg armor! Maybe add some side pouches and some kind medic lit /backpack. Looking forward to seeing how this pans out.
