    My armour is 7 pieces of sintra and several pieces of leather to connect it all.

    Here's my finished armour. The paint is a spray bronze hammered finish, dry brushed over with gold.

    They have a little bit of movement. I'm really anxious to see what others are doing with this project though. Let's see some progress guys!

    That looks fantastic! Wish I could make something like that, alas, I have no cash'olla. Only problem is that it looks like it's more steel colored than gold.

    Umm, I could sell it and make another for myself, but don't you want to make your own armour, dude? That's where the fun lies: making something yourself that you can be proud to put on display.

    Ummm.... I do want to make some myself but.... I made my Mando armor out of a trash can......... I would probably try to make it out of a trash can but it would be less than 1/2 as cool and I'm not the best at painting things.... I'm new to this kind of stuff.

    Just do what you can buddy. It takes a lot of practice to get good at costuming. The only way you'll get skilled at it is by actually making costumes.

    Krylon spray paint seems to be the one of the best choice. Paint it all gold and weather (or weather later on) then after it compeltely dries, use painter's tape over everything, then stencil and cut out the chest pattern in the tape, and paint the black parts. I haven't make armor before, but there are several uses for this procedure, though it's definetly not the only choice, it just seems to be the easiest IMO. Once you all painted, the painter's tape is off, and everythings dry (perhaps not all that order) spray it all over with a lil bit of Krylon Clear Matte Finish to dull any gloss from the other paints.

    For weathering, there are several routes you can go. Rub-n-buff comes to mind. You could also LIGHTLY spray from black, brown, brownze, or whatever weathering colored type of paint over the armor.

    If I'm mistaken at all here expert armor builders, please tell me so I can slap myself silly

    I just took some big sheets of paper, folded them in half, and started drawing shapes on them that I hoped would work. Luckily, one of them did. You could use a Fett backpiece for starters, then play around with it.

    thx hey what would you do for a rawk chopped special?http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Rawk_chopped_special
    Wow! I just saw this thread. Really cool stuff here.
    I was looking at the pic of that blaster and it struck me how similar the grip section is to the Sandman blaster from Logan's Run.
    Not that it really helps anybody. . . I just thought it was cool.

    If you look at Cade's shirt (don't have a pic handy) where the part connecting his armor plates goes over his shoulder his shirt is ripped. I'm wondering what type of material that is. in #3 after he is done talking to a certain ghost he doesn't have his armor on and his shirt looks kind of shiny.

    Well I couldn't get to a Home Depot so I checked Wal-Mart for some paint. I found the Krylon spray paint and my friend found a spary grip to attach to the paint can and make it easier to paint. I'm starting right now on the armor.
