Rahl Ver'za's Protector Build
« on: Sep 23, 2016, 08:14 PM »
With the recent retiring of my current kit, it's time to start again with a new build, and what better to choose than the Mandalorian Protectors?!

I was able to get done with the helmet this weekend:

(Comments and critiques welcome)

As far as the other armor components and doo dad's go, I have a fair amount of leftover parts from other Mando kits that will be used, but for other items, I have to hit a few more bounties to get the credits I need. But hey, that's a WIP for ya  ;)

LIST 'O' THINGS I HAVE/NEED
-Flightsuit: Have (needs tailoring)
-Vest n Neckseal: Have
-Armor Components: Have the sintra, need to make and paint
-Helmet: Have
-Belts: Have Boba style belt and rope girth belt (Needs to be dyed red)
-Pouches n Boot Spats: Have
-Boots: Have
-Jetpack: Need
-Gloves: Need
-Gauntlets: Need
-Shin Tools: Need
-Weapon: Have (DL-44, ANH Variant)
-Weapon Holster: Have the leather, need to make

I thinkkkk that about covers everything I have/need!
Updates and pictures to follow  ;D

You've got to fill the dent in the helmet. Love the colors though!

It's spelled "Canon", not "Cannon".

Thanks for the positive feedback, everyone!
It totally slipped my mind that I needed to cover the dent until I painted it, but I'm working on it!

Actually before I go about doing that, my roommate and I came up with an idea that instead of filling in the dent completely, I should jam a fake tooth/claw in there and give it a bit more "creature damage".

Thoughts?

Personally, I'd fill it. It's the location of the dent that's so iconic so many would immediately think "something has just been stuck in the Boba dent". Nice idea, just not there  ;)

I mean I'm not just going to shove something in there and call it good haha but I get your point!
I'll definitely mull it around in my head and come up with a few sketches, but I appreciate the feedback!  ;D
