Oya ner vode!

I'm Jaster. I've been an official member for 2 years now. When I first joined, I sported a gold and red (McMando lol) armor that I was, and still am, very proud of.

Recently, circumstances in my life have taken me down a road I do not want to be. Namely, divorce. I look at my armor now and see a man who no longer exists.

Today, I see something new. I see a fresh start, and with that, a fresh coat of paint. I've been working on a Boba Fett the last several months and wanted to incorporate those pieces in my new kit. I showed my initial concepts to my Alor'ad and he suggested I join you; The Protectors Brigade!

That said, Jaster Rai'ak has been put to rest. Standing before you is a new, hungry, Mando'ade: Jaster Fett.

I took the liberty of tweaking my design to be more CRL compliant. The first is my most compliant. The second one is something I wanted to ask on regarding the green for the armor. I was wondering if I could make it a blue green? If not, that's fine.




I'm still in the planning stage so ideas and advice are certainly welcome!

G'day vod, I like the second pic, like the bluish colour. Don't know about what's allowed or not...can't see why not, but I like it
Keen to see your progress

So sorry to hear about your struggles, vod. 

The same sort of circumstance led me to the MMCC, and changed my life so bigger and better things are on the horizon for you!

Really like your concept.  I would accept both colors with maybe a tiny bit more green in your bottom concept. 

I would encourage you to look around at some other protectors, pre-productions Bobas, and some of the earlier marvel comics about Mandalorians to see if you can get some inspiration from those that speaks to you.  That way, you can put your own special spin on this kit and be less Boba.  :)

Thanks for the feedback!
There are some variations of reds and greens I want to use as well as maybe do something with the girth belt color. I'm still locking down a basic color scheme. I also have some trophies on my old kit I'd like to use as well, just got to pick which ones.

Here's a third design I came up with real fast. I'm thinking of using red oxide for my visor frame/secondary color and knees. The shoulders are going to be a burnt orange and the gauntlets a yellow color (most likely a softer, dirtier, less vibrant yellow. I'm still playing around)

Green has been challenging. I have this soft, forest green paint I liked on my first Boba plates I'd like to incorporate but it still feel a bit too derived. I'd prefer not to use an airbrush as I have such horrible luck with maintaining them but I want my green to be unique. I tried going for the more citrusy one that you see in the old Marvel comics, but I'm not going to lie; NOT a fan of the bright colors.

The CRL says medium green but it would be nice to know how that term fits by way of shading (because I feel like hunter green could be too dark and lime green too light)

But I do know I want to add traces of blue into the green to help standout and to represent my clan (as our colors are blue and green)

I would welcome thoughts and advice

I'm in no way the definitive voice on this, but I did write the Mandalorian Protector BRL's when I was the Canon/Legends Marshal and therefore should be able to help guide you a bit.  The primary color should be of a medium green close to either of Boba's greens. He has a darker forest green for his torso plates and a lighter green on the dome and cheeks of his helmet.  The brighter green we see in the comics should still be allowed but should be muted with a blackwash and brownwash to make it more realistic (unless, of course, you're going for the straight-off-the-page comic look).  If you want to utilize blue, I'd highly suggest you use it as a tertiary color (light blue is allowed) and utilize it for your kill stripes and maybe your gauntlets (one or both). You could definitely incorporate the blue into your jetpack.

Also, love that my Facebook suggestion took root and that you're pursuing the Protector route!  We can never have too many! :D

I have settled on the basic color scheme for my Protector. This was much harder than I thought it was going to be since there were a lot of ideas I had that I had to scrap because they were not BRL compliant.

I'll get a list of things going here soon. The flight suit, boots, and girth belt aren't a problem since I already have those but everything else will have to be built or bought and since I'm also working on a Boba Fett kit, updates may be scarce

So, I have an update sooner than expected! I had a spare set of gauntlets I was going to use for Boba but screwed up on the hinge placement so I used them for my custom Mando. Today, they get repurposed! I applied a base metallic coat and used Vaseline for masking to create weathering.

 I then took krylon Bauhaus Gold and sprayed it onto the gauntlets until I had a solid coat. I then wiped the Vaseline off to expose the metal and reapplied the Vaseline over the weathered surface and sprayed Krylon pumpkin orange to the pieces.




After letting it dry, I once again wiped off the Vaseline to create a layered weather effect





While painting, I also misted the gauntlets with black spray paint and misted more orange over it too dull it out. I've applied dullcote to the gauntlets to remove the sheen and once dry, I'll black wash the gauntlets more

Loving the layered look!

The additional black wash will go a long way to making them look lived in.

The moment you think you've done enough. No! IT NEEDS MOAR! MOAR BLACK WASH!!!

Lol next phase will be to get some buttons installed and do some touch up painting and then I'm going to move on to the armor plates

I am really digging the concept art man. Looking awesome and that weathering on the gauntlets is looking pretty great. My current only personal 2 cents are as follows... Noooooooooooooooo more orange and green Protector kits lol I believe there are 5 kits total that are either approved or working towards approval that have orange gauntlets lol. I saw mention of blue accent colors on the kit. I think that would be pretty cool and reminiscent of the Jango Fett: Open Season Mandalorians. That being said, I also dig the black on the flame thrower bits and pleeeease pleeease please add the Jaig "Ears" that the Pre-Pro Fett eyes  :like: :like: :like: :like:

I hear ya. I REALLY wanted to do a green heavy turquoise but I have awful luck with air brushes. I thought about doing the tertiary light blue for the gauntlets but it just looked SOOOOO off. If it were allowed, I probably would've gone with a weathered turquoise

Nothing too terribly major tonight after dinner. I went on ahead and black washed my gauntlets using black acrylic paint and a piece of foam. I'd dab the foam in the paint and apply it to random parts of my gauntlet. I then would take a dry towel and smear the paint into the gauntlet. If I want less, I simply rub at the paint harder to get it off.





'd like to think they're believably dirty. I'm going to be out of town for a football game tomorrow but Saturday I'm going to look into getting some switches and other goodies for these bad boys
