New armour concept
« on: Oct 11, 2018, 12:51 AM »
Hi all,

I started a helmet build about a year ago and it fell by the wayside for a bit, but I'm very much back on track with the build and making some good progress now on a kit.

So here's the colour scheme/armour concept I'm looking at:


The helmet inspiration comes from here: http://mandalorianmercs.org/forum/index.php?topic=147791.0
but I don't plan to go all the way with the hammered look. I couldn't go past the shiny copper look from the first pic.

I would like to eventually look at making this particular Mando a force hunter, so the initial design has been done with that in mind. The cloak will be a Jedi style with a hood (a trophy), but beaten up to match the weathering everywhere else. For gauntlets I'm considering doing a Boba-ish left style on both hands- I'd like to see a Jedi parry double flamers.

So that's what I'm working towards, and I'm about to put a build thread up to show the work so far.

Cheers everyone,

Greg

This is a good concept.  Are you planning on a full cape, or something similar to Boba's half cape?

I'm planning a full cape with a hood (although the hood won't be worn over the bucket). The idea is that it will look like a Jedi trophy.

Cool idea.  Since it's going to be a trophy, do lots of damage, make it look like you earned it.  ;D

I really like your concept. The idea of using an old jedi cloak as a trophy is great!  :like:
