    new to the forums, lookin for metal armor

    hey all, im new here. just dropping a post to get some help with getting my mando armor started.
    i was recomended to come here and find someone called WickedBeard. i was told that he makes full metal armor and gauntlets.
    im looking for full metal jango fett armor, to include helmet and gauntlets. i have been planing my armor for about a year now, but i refuse to settle for plastic armor, even if its a heavy gauge. in specific need of the full jango parts to have more pieces to modify to go along with my other pieces.
    it might seem silly that i want some "heave" for my armor but i want nothing but the best for my mandalorian armor.
    if someone could point me in the right direction i will greatly appreciate the help

    You are correct, you seek WICKEDBEARD. Just shoot him a PM and he WILL get back to you. His work is TOP NOTCH, and very reasonably priced. You will be pleased if you got with him.

    Wickedbeard's armor is awesome, but it's not really "heavy" armor. Also, nobody at this point in time makes metal helmets forsale. Sometimes you can find a Hand-Schuab aluminum helmet for around $500.

    WICKEDBEARD makes metal guants as well. I own a set and love them. I went with a top notch RESIN set first, an dthey kept breaking. After WICKEDBEARDS gaunts, I never looked back. They are perfect...

    WB's gaunts are the best in the business no doubt. I own a pair and have really enjoyed them.

    I'm making a thin aluminum bucket right now, but I won't be selling stuff anytime soon. I would recommend you try a scratchbuild. It's not too terribly hard, especially if using light metal. If you want heavy stuff though, it'll be a real pain. Other than that, I don't know how much I can help. good luck!
