I can't decide whether to make a more traditional supercommando armour or something more like this from the mandalorian wars . your opinions would be greatly appritiated.

I remember hearing once that Harrison Ford once told George Lucas something in the effect of (I'm paraphrasing) "George...you can write this stuff but we just can't say it!" I see the same idea in play when I look at an Illustration like that. "Illustrator...you can draw this stuff but we just can't wear it!" In other words, it doesn't look like anything anyone could walk around in at a con, but what do I know, I thought the same thing about Durge.:facepalm

Anyway, if you have the skills, resources and determination, I say go for it.
 
for the most part i've seen Fetts with a new paint job (mine too;) ) so this would look realy cool in the flesh, and it would truly be a dented variant.
Good luck with whatever you choose to do.
 
I decided last week when I picked up that issue that I wanted to make this helmet. I have a pretty decent plan in mind to successfully convert a Jango or Boba helmet over for it. I figured it's still Mandalorian looking, but steps away from the standard helmet to still stand out.

When I saw that helmet I said the same thing. My next mando I am wanting to build a heavy weapons vairant and that helmet would be great with my ideas. I have a unfinished boba helmet setting in my work room waiting to be worked on. I may start my ideas with it. Either that or I am going to try my hand in building one from scratch.
 
It might be easier to just do one from scratch... because from the pic it seems that the cheeks of a Boba would make it a complicated project for that style of visor.
Looks kind of like a welders mask.
REALY COOL

There's actually another helmet in there that I was looking at that looks like it would be a lot easier to convert. Basically, it's a Jango with a sort of weird breath mask, and the view-finder was replaced with some odd looking camera. I'll post the pic in a few to show you what I'm talking about.

Go for that one of the cover shot, Dellis. With your body size, and the look of that drawing... You'd fit that actually pretty well. The drawing makes that Mando look pretty hefty.
