    Sep 19, 2007, 1:54 AM - Shock Mando #1

    This is an idea I have been toying around with sense I first started on my Jango Armor. Seeing as I have lots of bits lying around that I can suck into this project. I think it is about time I started.

    What few things I have decided is that I am going to incorporate a custom helmet and real Chain Mail. I have medieval armor working skills and would like to get to play with them in this project. I have my jump suit planned out, for the most part, and where most of the chain is going to go. (Except I don’t know what pattern weave I am going to use, for the chain mail.)

    My guns (3) are planned out but un-started, as are my blade weapon(s)

    Here is where you can help if you want. Are there any pictures of a Heavy, Shock, or older styles of Mando armor any where in EU that I can loosely follow. ( I found some Neo pictures but don't like that style.)

    I also would love to hear your ideas and thoughts on what would look like.
    --------------------------------------
    P.S. - Here I go on one crazy project, please come along.

    If you pick up the 2nd KOTOR graphic novel, then you will see a ton of various mando armor types that you could possibly use. If someone has the planetary invasion pic from that novel, then can post it and you'll see =D.

    Darian Ordo, one of our Mercs uses a chain mail coif under his helmet. It's a pretty cool look honestly.

    Well I finaly locked in what I think I may do for my plates today while I was at work and in class.

    I plan on starting on the cardbord templets with in the week.

    Now I just got to get the plastic I need. I know where part of next week's pay check is going.....

    I would still like to see that picture if any one has it. I may head down to Barn's and Noble and see if I can find it in the next few days.
