Montross (Bounty Hunter)

And part two of my last post. I’m also doing Montross from Star Wars Bounty Hunter as well (what can I say? I feel I’m born for the part). This version is actually surprisingly more difficult to make out than the Open Seasons version. I’m caught in between if I should even bother including the cape since in the gameplay itself he doesn’t even wear it (plus I don’t even know what kinda pattern he’s got going on on it). His pants and once again sleeves are also hard to make out. They both appear to be an olive green/ grayish color but it’s hard to tell the material. Almost as if he’s wearing chaps. Any input would be great. Also the pistol is by the homie @mythos_fenn_shysa.

(And yes I’ll be bleaching my hair and wearing white contacts, with pale effect makeup.)

Probably the most detailed pictures of him I could find. Thoughts?

Hello sir,
I have a few more for your collection, if you don't have these already? :lol: i threw in a couple texture maps as well as the 3d model which i'm sure will be very useful despite how low res they are:

3 - Textures & Character Model (5).jpg

Pants i'm not so sure about...
What i DO see is maybe dark grey/black at the top around the crotch...olive for the rest..then there's the noticeable straps of grey fabric/belts wrapped around his legs. The lower section always looked to me like he was wearing dark bronze greaves.
As for the armour, It's literally Jango's aluminium colour just heavily weathered down. Brown, gold/sandy tones and maybe green and black...which changes the overall hue completely.
I would use Rub 'N Buff "Silver Leaf" for the main base of the armour colour..there is excellent knowledge about Rub 'N Buff on here, def take some notes from the Jango builds if you don't already know.
As for the helmet ears, cheeks and rangefinder..I would go for a 'brick red' (seems to be about right) along with a dull, more muted orange for the face and band above the back panel.
Hopefully these images give you a better understanding. Does that help? Best of luck with the build man!
You have my blessing.

Sorry for the delay. I just saw this. I had meant to come back to it. And I knew I saw olive. On his shoulders too. What’s interesting to me is that despite what everybody else including the action figure says he actually doesn’t look like he’s wearing shoulder pads. In the outtakes it looks like he’s got olive Nylon bomber jacket sleeves cut short and fastened with leather straps. And I knew the chest plates had Jango’s silver color underneath except much less taken care of... As for the helmet, WastedFett’s Kenner Boba kinda inspired me. I’m gonna go with those colors, except more scarlet on the T shape, brown lines around and of course the rust effect.

As crazy as I am, I even hit up Jon Knoles for advice on the construction of the armor. Not even he had a clear answer. He had wanted to put a cape but the game engine at the time wouldn’t allow it. I’m actually gonna use faux alligator skin for it (since if you look closely it actually has scales and in my opinion that’s bad to the fuckin’ bone). This is actually the concept he sent me which is what was originally intended. I’m really glad they didn’t give him those terrible feathers or nails, but it would’ve been bad ass to see him with a knife. I’m kinda tempted to give him one. Or at least have one made with that handle just to keep it.

I also send Mr. Knoles these and he actually complimented me... I almost bursted into tears. This is literally my childhood dream come true!

On today’s episode of Goodies I Ordered...

• Tactical boots, as accurate to the game as I can find (I’m gonna have the laces covered with a shoe gaiter)

• Faux crocodile skin for his cape (because if you look close his cape seems to have scales.

• Authentic leather WWI shin armor; just gotta replace the straps on there with the next item which isss...

• Grey leather straps, two different sizes since he has a lot of those going on.

• And brown but more olive looking wool Viking trousers from the one and only Grimfrost, the supplier for Game of Thrones and Vikings.

Aaaaand the pants are in. And they fit me perfectly. Although I realize I’m going to need to get suspenders rather than the belt I’m wearing which it seems I may need to add onto the kidney belt. Seeing the belt straps going down and the holster straps, this makes sense. Just a matter of how.

I legit can’t get over how accurate the front of these boots are! I’m beyond stoked. And they also add a few inches on to me (one thing I was insecure about for this piece was my height; I’m 5’11” but I make up for it with my weight in muscle).

All I gotta do now is lose the lace, add the leather pieces on the side, and the chap on the top

I know this isn’t quite the look you’re going for but they do have info on the 501st website on a montross build

I know him, that’s Tubachris. I spoke with him about this a few times. He may also be helping me with this (I haven’t heard back from him in a while, probably the holiday)... I am actually also doing the Open Seasons version as well (and even the action figure version).

I’m really excited about this one though because nobody has done the Bounty Hunter variant (at least to my knowledge). Montross has always been one of my favorites, and to be the first to bring this version to life is more than a dream come true.

Well right on man! Best of luck I’ll definitely be watching this WIP it’s gonna be sick!

I'm also a little insecure about my height...Its not something you should feel bad about man. I'm a little over 5'9, which is more than perfect for Jango apparently seeing as Tem is only about 5'7.5
I'm hoping I can at least be close to your height or around 6 foot whenever I get round to making Boba though because that's where I think Boba should be...The boots and helmet always increase height too...and 5'11 is damn perfect to me for Montross. Your body build alone more than makes up for that.
Montross was always one of my favourite characters too...criminally underrated honestly...and it's a pity not more people know about how great he is.
Thanks to Mando Season 2, Open Seasons is technically canon again so Montross is probably actually getting a bit more recognition now which is very cool...Bless Dave Filoni and Jon Favreau...Same goes for SWBH, despite them retconning the game with that lame "Age of Republic" Jango comic which doesn't even compare to how perfect Jango's recruitment with Dooku was done in the game. Canon to us who love it though :cool:(y)
Going back to the build, I am absolutely loving everything you have so far you're well on your way with something special here... I love and appreciate the dedication you're putting in making use of real items for him.
Looking forward to seeing the next update!

Thank you Spicy! And Boba, that’s true. I was happy when I found out he was that height I was like “Okay maybe I’m not so bad.” Plus look at people like Sly Stallone and Tom Hardy.

And thank you both so much. This really is special to me. And the fact I’m gettin so much support for it means the world. I’m determined if Azzers can get the role of Cleveland Brown (from doing impressions on YouTube!) I can get the role of Montross. I wish I could upload audio files for you guys to show you all my voice impression (that even Jon Knoles himself complimented).

As far as it being canon, it had a celebrity voice cast and a crew and I’m sure a big ass budget went into it... There’s no way it’s NOT canon. Lol. I don’t care what Disney says. These are the same people who think Rey is a developed character.

And THIS! JUST! IIIIIN!

My second helmet (modeled here by my badass stepdaughter) and my two jet packs! I got a size smaller on the jetpack but as you see it rests above the kidney belt and is a bit tiny on him... Plus the oldest bodybuilder rule in the book: always go with the extra shmedium.

Today’s arrivals: burgundy leather straps (I lost count of how much exactly but I remember it’s enough for 8 straps which is what he has in the above picture) and faux alligator skin leather for the cape. I realize the color was a bit dark BUT I have a friend who is going to distress it to match the art of the game... I can not contain my hype right now.
