Title: Kai Ree'tat Protector WIP
Post by: Kai Ree'tat on May 29, 2017, 11:34 PM
Finished making my fixes and re-submitted for OM approval, fingers crossed. I am now approved.

First off, you're slouching way forward in all the pictures and it's making your plates misaligned. Lift your head and put your shoulders back and it should pull everything up where it's supposed to be.

The boot wraps are a no go. They should be proper spats. 

The knife on your right legs needs to go too.

Yes, I realize boot wraps and the knife are in the CRL page currently...but they are wrong, as is allowing kamas and a couple other things which I have brought up now repeatedly. They are based on the Mythos statue....which is NOT a Protector, rather a variant Boba. As I was one of the orginal team that wrote the CRL's and have 4 years of research while writing them and beyond....

Anyway, it's a good looking kit otherwise.

Thank you for the feedback Ca'tal. As what is on my kit is currently on the PRL for Protectors it will stay until told otherwise by the Brigade Marshal in charge of the Division as I added those components under his guidance. It may look like I am slouching or shrugging forward but I am not, yes I was holding myself in a rigid stance so that gaps around my shoulder area of the back plate would not show. I happen to have back and knee issues from injuries received in Iraq, and the back issues effect the way my back plate sits on my body in a relaxed state and I was trying to compensate for app pics.

Good looking kit, Kai.

I would personally wait to see what Dha says about those couple things. 

Very much looking forward to having another Brigade approved MP around!

Ah. That makes sense. Having broken my back in a car accident I know them feels man.

And since I didn't say so in my original post, I really like two particular touches. The protector symbol on the belt buckle is a really nice subtle addition, and the fact that you went with a tertiary color for the gauntlets, they really turned out well. Best of luck on your approval!

Ca'tal is not wrong about the original mandalorian protectors (marvel comics) not having these things. The BRLs were revised and rewritten to from the Mandalorian Protectors during the war with the Vong.  They were revised at the time of the canon + legends split to make the profession more appealing. At that time, it had  zero members.
There are additions and amendments to the BRL currently underway, and no approved Protectors will be effected by the additions to the BRL. There are likely to be 2 versions of Mandalorian Protector BRLs. The original marvel comics protector, and the Vong era/ mythos protector.

I have been doing a revamp to my kit to improve the quality and overall look of things. Much happier with how it looks so far, I am also working on a scratch build Z-6 JP to replace my area pack.

Looks really good, I used to dress up and pass out candy before we got our house. Now we live way back in and get no kids coming to the door.

Upgrade time, finally getting around to more detailing on my kit. I have made my gauntlets match better with the ROTJ style and have added more details to my buy'ce as well. Still waiting on gauntlet darts to come in as well as proper knee darts so that I can lose the PVC connections.

Made a few color updates, got rid of my purple and the orange on my helmet, also painted my Pulse 40 appropriately.
