    Re: My New Style Mando Armour

    Thanks guys, well BobaFettDaddy, I'm thinking of going packless. It would only get in the way as a Sniper. I have been working on the Armour these last few days, and have gone with valcro to fix to my vest/undershirt. I have also been working on my Rifle also. The rifle only needs a few more touchs and it will be finished, also a little weathering. Below is a few pics of the rifle as it stands now. It's fun working on two outfits, you can do some on one and then have a break and work on the other. My Imperial Knight outfit is coming on well also........

    Re: My New Style Mando Armour

    Very good looking so far. I thought that since your doing a camo colored sniper, maybe you can add something like a guily suit type thing to the back or where ever, and would really really bring out the feeling of a sniper. Good job!

    Re: My New Style Mando Armour

    Thanks guys for your comments, I will be adding some elements of ghillie to the outfit. As for the Blaster/Sniper rilfe, it just needs a little weathering. The Armour is now marked out were im going to apply the colour scheme. I just need now to pop down the local Hobbie craft and pick up the acrilic paint needed. Then i can start the camo paint job. As I progress with it i'll add more pics......

    Re: My New Style Mando Armour

    I went down to an advanced auto parts awhile back, and they actually had in the paint section, like 3 different sprays that were meant for paioting camo. They were all under the same sub-brand. I havent used it though, but throwing that info out to you.

    Re: My New Style Mando Armour

    Well the paint job is now underway, I have applied the first layers of the Green camo effect to my Chest Armour. The camo job is going to be a kind of British Army Woodland look. Here is a pic of work so far. I will update with more pics later on..........

    I have now completed my stage 1 of the Chest Armour paint job. When its dry I will paint the second layer of the colour to each part. Here is 2 pics from this part of the job. One pic shows the Brown added to the Amour, the other shows the other colours added to complete the look....

    I have added the grey inner cheek and stripe around the dome. Also I have now added the black camo to the Helemt now, also i have put the visor in. All i need to do now is add some weathing to it now. I was thinking of some kind of mud staines to parts of the Helmet, here are the pics so far.......

    Re: My New Style Mando Armour

    After looking at the Helmet, I'm going to darken the grey cheeks and stripe around the dome. I will also be adding my Sniper logo somewhere on the Helmet also, or maybe on another part of the Armour. I also need to start work on my backplate, and cod. When I have these parts ready I will post a few more pics.......

    Re: My New Style Mando Armour

    Nice camo job. Did you mask off the different colors or paint over the previous colors? Did you use an airbrush, spray paint or a bristle brush? It's coming together nicely!

    Re: My New Style Mando Armour

    I did at first think to spray the camo onto the helmet, but I ended up using a bristle brush, to paint on the pattern. I first draw the shapes onto the helmet with a lead pencil, then just paint the areas. I have changed one feature of the paint job, the Grey cheeks and stripe have been changed to a brown. I will also finish the paint job of with a matt lacker.... & thanks for you intrest Hunter.

    Re: My New Style Mando Armour

    Here is 2 pics of the brown cheeks, with the brown stripe around the dome... After much thought, I think this looks much better then the grey. What you think ??.............

    I think it looked cool either way, but going with the brown makes sense for hiding in the trees.
