Hey all fellow Mandalorians..
I have been here for quite some time, without being too active. Some years ago, when i first learned about Bobamaker through this forum, i got myself a full suit of armor from him. I never intended to make a Boba or Jango clone, but have allways wanted to make my very own mandalorian, with his own story. I have been a roleplayer for MANY years, both real life and in games, and the story i have for my mandalorian, would take months to write, but story story is. He was a commander for a small group of mandalorians who was placed to keep a point of interrest safe. But his own brother betrayed him, resulting in his wife and children was killed. So due to that story, plus preventing me from being mixed up with jango or boba hehe, i make my armor in following colors (as the pic below allso shows).. Gold plates for vengance of his family, Black for justice over his brother, And a bit of grey as he mourns over his lost family..
But now i finally desided that i want to make my Armor MK.2. I am a Metal worker, and am about to make my second armor in 1.5MM stainless steel. There are 2 reasons for that (mainly 2). First of all, stainless steel will make the armor so strong that i basicly never again need to fear it braking or being injured during transport or anything. The second is, being an old swordfighter at shows, im used to wearing chainmail and full plate armor, so i love to feel the weight of my armor, plus, the weight of it, actually keeps it in place as well..
But now, i would like to hear someone else's thoughts. I like i mentioned, am about to make my steel plates, and with those, i thought of new colors. In my mind, i was thinking that Black plates could look quite awesome, but my problem is, what should my flakvest and jumpsuit be?. Those 2 i cant make myself, so i have to find a good color that i can be satisfied with, as i am going to order them from Bobamaker, and ask him to color them for me.
Allso, my armor as you can see im wearing in the pic, looks pretty much the same still, but i am allways changing things on it. For example, my baret is now red instead, still with the insignia tho, and i am wearing 2 blaster holsters instead of one.
With all this said, im looking forward to your input...
