    Apr 27, 2008, 9:24 PM - my first mando. its a start..... #1

    Ive been lurking this sight for a wile now. I got some inspiration from the trash can thread. Thank you AFettFullofDollars!! Got the WOF templates and cut out my armor. So thats it. I have my chest armor , shoulder armor cod piece and an idea. I also wrestled over a name for about a week. I came up with Orar Kar'ta which means Thunder Heart. Heres some pics of what I have so far.

    Great start my friend. Are you planning on wearing the shoulders inverted like you have them now? One of our Falco clan member in Mercs wears them that way also, so it's not completely unheard of if you do. =)

    I like it! What exactly are you going to have scribed onto the arms? Or is that blood weathering?

    Actually its going to be chipped red paint as well as yellow paint on the red knees and gauntlets. just wanted a bit of design instead of solid color.

    I would say to hold off on the dyeing the suit tell you get it all done. That way you can see what it looks like green and if you don't like it you can dye it black.

    Wouldn't worry about the collar at all. The neck seal flap should cover it with no problems.

    well I finally have a few progress pics with the metal. So far Ive cut out the back armor shoulders and neck . I also folded over the edges for safty I havent shaped them yet. I figures id get all the pieces cut then shape them later. so hears what i have so far.
