I am debating doing the X and the skull, i did it before and didn't like it. So i sanded it off and painted over it.

I am not sure if you can notice that I modified it to be my own symbol. From a water drop to a leave and and ever that symbol was on the bottom i changed.

Nice work, but your armor seems a little more orange than red. At least to my eyes the comic armor seems more red. I would get rid of that dent though, especially since the comic one doesn't have one. As much damage as a Mando would take, a bunch of them having the same dent justs seems off. It's a must for Boba, not so for others.

I like it, I see you've opted for keeping the dent, also. It's very similar to mine, except the color on the helmet is reversed(kinda). I really like where you're going with this, are you atempting the female armor for a significant other, perhaps?

It does look orange in the picture, but it looks more red in person. The dent in the helmet is just there for now, i am going to get a better helmet to use...this is just a temp.

For the female, I am not saying anything definte right now, but i would like to do a music video fan film with this scene in it.

Looks awesome Makan...keep up the good work and keep us posted with progress pics. IMO...I'd add the X and the skull back on the helmet...it would definately add something most customs don't have. I also agree with Remo...loose the dent...hehe. Glad to see you aboard

For weathering, i used warhammer paint and a small paint brush.


Thanks fosterkeri. It will need help and it needs alot of work.


I really need some quantlets, but i don't have a lot of money.

About 10 bucks at most stores.

Your armor will look a lot more like the pic if you spotmist and mist the edges in a red/black mix with an airbrush. The red will look more blood-color and less cheery red. Looks great, though.

Even just a plain old black wash will tone it down. It looks like a good start.

And yes, lose the dent on the helmet.

sorry i didnt see that earlier....i picked mine up at target, but i have seen them at walmart, toys"r"us, and anywhere else that sells nerf guns. And like was said, they cost about $10.

I do want to remove the dent, but that will come in time, but i never thought of a was. I am a high school student (about to grad) and an art student at that, and it never crossed my mind. Thanks for the tip!

That, and it'll probably get cancelled soon anyway; I used to subscribe to that Star Wars Galaxy magazine. It changed to Star Wars Collector, and died after producing a few issues. The moment I subscribe to Insider, it'll probably get cancelled :p

Idk, with them making the TV show in Jan and the 2 cartoons, i think it will be there for a while. Plus, they know they can't do no wrong with star wars, so.....yea i think it will be there for a long time.

Galaxies was a crying shame. I was on the chilastra server. I was in the SHN when the CU came around, and it destroyed the guild. that really hurt, loosing friends like that. And then with the new one, I stopped playing on Nov 1st, me and my exgirlfriend broke up (ah, high school drama) and being upset i didnt want to play, so i took a break. At this point in time no one knew about the change coming up...then on Nov 25 or so i turned it on to see what everyone was up to and to my surprise the game was completely different. I am not saying i will not give the game a chance, becuase i would love to, but my computer cannot handle it anymore and all my money is going into this costume. Some day tho...
