Canon Rally Master
« on: Apr 16, 2019, 04:58 PM »
Has anyone attempted a Canon Rally Master Armor like what was seen in Solo with the samurai inspired splint armor.



I was hoping to do something in this vein for my first armor build, and I was wondering which Era it would fall under and which costume requirements it would be held to.

Considering I'm going for a look inspired by the crusader seen in Clone Wars on the cubist artwork, with the flowing cloaks and swords, I was going off of the Crusader Era costume recs, and had figured I'd need to change the helmet. I'm new to the community, just joined today, and I've been trying to find my bearings.

That kit is comprised of an off the shelf Samurai armor commercially available and a poorly painted boba/jango style bucket.  It is not currently being considered for approval under canon or custom CRL's at this time.  If you want layered plates, check out the CRL's for legacy and crusader eras respectively.  That helmet could be used under legacy, but not crusader.

If someone applied with that kit, it would fall under the crossover clause in the CRL's, as someone would look at it and say "Oooh, cool Samurai Costume!" and then go , "Wait... is that a mando helmet?"

Highly recommend you take a look at legacy, and also this tutorial from the war college: https://mandalorianmercs.org/forum/index.php?topic=153981.0

Thanks so much. Like I said I had pretty much accepted that I would be changing the helmet, I hate how it looks overall anyway (as a canon freak my personal headcanon is that itís a modern helmet that was placed on ancient armor because Vos/the museum he stole it from needed something on top)

By the way I want to say Iím a big fan of yours. Your fairly cheap first set of armor was what actually made me consider this as something feasible.

AWWWW Thanks man!  I'm still fairly cheap if you don't count the evolutionary process lol.  Excited to see your concept develop!

So just so Iím clear, is it possible to have layered armor as a crusader (as long as itís not just samurai armor with a mando helmet on top) as long as the helmet isnít modern? I like the style of the legacy mandalorian armor, and of course the layers, but itís just not quite the... aesthetic Iím going for. I kind of want to capture the feel of an older, earlier style mandalorian armor, inspired by the murals seen in clone wars with the robes and swords and such.

You really need to go check out the reference image libraries in the war college to get a feel for each aesthetic.
