Besides looking pretty cool,a poncho can help differentiate the kit from Boba, could possibly be used to hide the actions of the hands too

I do have a Clint " man with no name" poncho...it's big on me...if I use that as a pattern I'll have to adjust the measurements. Research some good material that'll hang pretty cool, like in pics/ comics etc. I reckon a light soft material, dull flat look
Wonder how linen would go? I've no idea with fabrics

Been thinking abit lately and decided I'm not going to try apply for protector brigade, I'll just make a kit like a protector but as I would like it. Add a few extra bits and leave out the others
I'll update in the armour construction bit

I understand...
My kit was made in almost the same idea. I really like the look of the classic "Boba" but wanted to make it my own (mixes of mythos and some other stuff...) When it was ready I jumped on the Protector train...but not until I thought I was ready.
Your kit is amazing and truly an inspiration. I'm sure that if you stay true to your vision, take your time, and have fun it will only get better!
Can't wait to see more updates!

Thanks mate, still trying to get ball rolling. I've got a few things I'd like to try to do once the time is right....weather wise.
I think the protectors are cool....not a fan of the new protectors though. I like the "supercommando" term applied to them.
If I do join a brigade it'll be the protectors. I'm the same with boba looking cool, as does Jodo....and wanting something different to both....a distinct cool looking bad shebs character...I think a poncho is a step that way,weapon/ blacker could be another another way.  I like boba having his braids, suits him. I'd like to have something different....no lightsabers or chest diamonds though. Was find something different or no trophies at all. At this stage I'm leaning towards that ...I'm still open to it if I can find something different....or even how and where I can wear what ever it is....I'm half thinking if my character got lucky in a bar one night....could he have ....a bra hanging off his range finder..🤔Don't think that'll pass.

At moment the trophy part....or maybe find something else that's different to Boba

Hahahaha hanging a bra off of your range finder  :boba:

If you want to think of something interesting and unique check out some other canon Mandos back stories. Since my kit is essentially Fenn Shysa, one of my trophies is a braided gold and green rope with a gold disk meant to be the cloak and broach from the Suprema - the imperial responsible for killing Tobbi Dala - Fenn's closest friend, to signifying getting justice for Dala.

Something like that might fit your character well.

I'll have a look when I get the chance, been a bit busy last few weeks. Whatever way I go, it'll be very similar to a protector...plus or minus a few things. I'm sort of thinking about some extra kit he may have for various missions etc. in the end I think this'll be more on display than trooping...so a few extra weapons, soft backpack with thermal dets, extra set gauntlets ....maybe a few extras like bandoleer ....been looking at dred priest character....he's pretty cool
Jp latest

Cufflinks for an awards night
