Miridala A'dika WIP
« on: Aug 01, 2019, 11:21 AM »
Hello all,

I was the KY noob needing a hand post but I guess I need an actual thread for my WIP. So a little background info, my Mandoa name means Clever Girl, which was given to me while sharing some ideas in our Blue Moon Clan build chat.

The theme of my build is in reverence to Kylo Ren, not reference, actual Reverence. My girl's backstory is that she was a force sensitive Mandalorian who was training at Luke Skywalker's school with Ben Solo. When Ben rebelled, she supported him, however declined the invitation to join the Knights of Ren in order to return home and complete training as a bounty hunter instead. Once her training was complete she fashioned her armor to show her allegiance to Kylo Ren. She mostly takes contracts directly from him or ones that he deems appropriate on behalf of the first order. When not in service to Kylo she makes her way taking various freelance jobs across the galaxy that require her unique set of Force fueled skills and weaponry.

With that said, the kit is utilizing scavenged parts from a 501st approved Force Awakens Kylo Ren in addition to parts that follow the same textures. I will update with pictures as I go along, I have just a few of parts and bucket work. My clan has been helping me convert the Rubies Jango 2 piece.  :mtu:  :porg2:

Sounds interesting! Following as well, I like characters with backstories! Even though mine doesn't have one yet...  ;D

Sooooo yeah it's been quite a while without any updates so there is a ton to note and all the pictures attached here are from several months spread out random parts acquisitions and attempts at construction.  This post will serve as the catchup to speed post with all the pics leading up to this week. This week has been light speed developments. Of course everything I have done so far as been with consultation of my Clan command staff and review with my Rus. (Blue Moon Clan).
The album also includes reference pics for inspiration, a few Mando family armor party pics and failed attempts.

Visor has not been glued in yet, its just cut and shaped to fit. Plates are temporarily mounted in order to assess spacing.

Now I'm going to bed, and maybe later I can get the stuff done that I have been putting off so I could finish this damn thing!  :porg2:  :jango: I started my initial sketches and research in March of this year. Completed and submitted pics as of 11/9/19

An interesting build!
I think the backstory is pretty cool, but I'm kinda biased towards a well thought out tale. And glad to see you're working with your Ruus and clan (give Abbie a hug for me, next time!).

Good luck, and good hunting!

WERE YOU AT CINCY EXPO???? I was there trooping from Bluegrass Garrison as Doctor Aphra, but I was also Correllian Base Admiral Holdo, and my Mashup Progressive Flo Leia. I was on throne duty most of the weekend. Lol I'll definitely hug Abbie, she's my Mando Mama, her and Ryan have been amazing and have helped me every step of the way.  Our group build chat with other noob mando blue moon clan builders has been vital in getting everything done and trying to stick to the CRLs the best we can.
