    Re: my custom heavy mando

    so i started the "detailed weathering" using left over warhammer paint





    BTW has anyone ever thought of using chainmail? im considering using it on my left arm between the armor plates, armpit and alboq joints.

    Re: my custom heavy mando

    darian ordo over at mando mercs uses a chainmail hood. we've roundtabled chainmail over there over and over. the general consensus was the time involved in making it vs the protective ability combined with the fact that really no known star wars characters use it, it should be used sparingly. we don;t like to tell our members they can't use something, although on some things we must, we would rather ask for heavy mods or limited use so as not to stifle creativity. based on known star wars canon and eu, it would seem that most of the protective undersuits worn by various troopers/warriors in the swu would offer similar protection as chainmail.

    all that said, i think if you used it sparingly with your heavy concept or as a dressing, say a kama, it would look great. i use it sparingly on my ggloves and gauntlets.

    great build btw, i've been watching it's progress. really dig the helmet although it has a heavy clone feel to me, probably bcause of the "mouth" area.

    keep up the good work!

    jup that was my fears as well, that no known star wars charackter has used chain mail. i still dont know

    hehe the clone/mando cross was intentional. my friend called it the missing link:P

    Your Costume looks wonderful! I think I prefer the second paint scheme to the first. Keep up the good work, and post an update soon!

    Looks awesome. And with the designs, I like the first one. The second one just is a bit to plain for my liking. Maybe you could add some stripes or somthing onto it. Keep it up!

    Re: my custom heavy mando

    ahem... it would seem i am was stupid enough to get a job couple of weeks ago and thus havents been able to work on my beskar as much as i want to. this is what little i have done and photographed (i also have a shin ready to paint, attached the smaller plates on the chest and started on a backback)

    the new chin design, or "box" still requires my attention with paint and anlso some vents or lits. the range finder just needs the black "visor" for the slits, and i still need a preferably dark green visor

    RF up the "hose thingy" still needs paint and some fillerwork.

    Dude you have gone so far with this costume. I am most impressed with the time and work you have put into this costume. Definitly worth watching for. Favorite part is the helmet hands down.

    Have to go with Lev'ika on this one... I prefer scheme #1. If I were to draw it for u... it'd proally be similar to that. That pattern looks pretty good.

    Re: my custom heavy mando

    I hope its not going to be one of those buckets where its hard to see out of because of all the stuff put on the side and possibly in front of it!

    Re: my custom heavy mando

    Holy ****! this is going to turn out to be one of those suits that actually scare people who see you in it. You've definitely got some heavy metal influences in there. And vikings rock. When you finish you should do another bucket that has some kind of horns on it lol.

    Keep up the great work man!

    thansk again guys. so far iv had no problems seeing out of it, all the "things" from the range finder just blurs up and is almost invisible.

    oh and a viking themed mando would be awesome! with lots of chain mail and a vibro axe
