That's a nice color scheme on that renegade helmet Vod. I haven't decided how I'm painting my renegade yet.

Front Torso so far. Bottom portion weathered upper should b today. Diamond will be put on upon armor "completion"

Put everything on last night. Tried a sleeveless variation then decided to go with full flightsuit. I always envisioned a very low tech rough wilderness kit with the legacy (layered) styled front torso. But I've been reading about late crusaders and I'm wondering if what I've put together fits better in that era. Please anyone reading give me your thoughts as I'd really appreciate them :)

Oh yeah and I know the shoulder plates are missing but I am currently  working on getting them designed and banged out to wear by next weekend. If it helps just imagine metal shoulders in place of the blue grey material on my shoulders in most of the pics. Also I am definately going with the full flightsuit after working it both ways. I feel like the sleeves help the suit flow better.

Did a practice run with the unfinished kit at Tulare Scifi con.  The left side of the fur kept falling off but other than that the armor trooped real well. It was tons of finally being able to sport some Mando armor with my kill striped wife Van'sa!!

Love the design of the shoulders! Do you mind if I use that idea, or one based off of it for future upgrades to my kit?

Not at all they are a variation of Ronan's (GoG) shoulders. Right now they are connected with tape but I will be using leather riveted to the metal  to keep them together.

Thank you! I like the leather idea. It will definitely give it a lot of character and look pretty awesome

Starting to come together. Although that chest plate looks like it could do with being closer to the body at both top and bottom edges. It looks to be sticking out a fair distance right now. The rest does look pretty much done though.

App team members from my future clan noticed the same thing  ;) problems fixed and app pics sent

Sash shortened, kama/loin backed with leather and chest piece readjusted.  I am really glad the chest was noted. I used two screws one on each side to mount but I didn't realize it had created a pivot point causing it to sit incorrectly.  I put it back into original position and mounted an additional screw to maintain it. Thanks everyone!! Should be final pics up tonight  ;D

Looks great, vod! One thing though, the leather bags and some of the pouches appear to be really clean looking as compared to the torn up kama and weathering on the armor. This might be what you're going for but I think that if some weathering was added to those, it would bring the kit a little bit more together. Just my opinion though. Great work!
Title: Re: Eh'seejay Gratiir metal Legacy WIP
Post by: Kris Jasra on Mar 17, 2015, 08:13 AM
App wise I think you're good now.
(I'd add not just the pouches to the weathering, but possibly put a rip or two in the sash too :P )

Now it's time for upgrades!!  First I'll dirty up the leg pouch as its the cleanest. The coin pouch is pretty thrashed and the satchel(purse) is actually pretty whooped too but that leg pouch needs to match  :D

Next I'll be going for a brigade and this is the first step.

Now that is good planning. But are earth animals allowed in the beast tamer/hunter brigades (I'm assuming that's what you're going for)?

Yessir, As with most things in our Mando world a little stretch of the imagination is necessary. The head is from an Accipiptero from the planet Dagobah as seen here  ;D

Would I be amiss recommending you put horns on it, making it look like a young Krayt Dragon skull?  I know, I know, "put horns on it" is my answer for everything... :laugh:

Really, though, it would make it look more in-universe, and would probably look bad-shebs to have a crown of horns poking out from behind you, as well.

Been a long time, too long perhaps but I'm back at it.  A couple years ago what could only be described as my favorite nephew  >:( decided to play with my lid while I was away and subsequently shattered it.  At the time I was already lagging on my mando and decided in anger and frustration to just stop for a very long time.  I ended up moving and tossed almost all of my in progress parts so I am back to basics. Just trying to get those stripes back  :8):

Without further ado here are some progress pics of the new lid...
