Hail Oya'la Ca'tra Clan, I am new here and want to get started but I don't know much about getting started. I would be up for doing coffee or meeting up to talk about the club.

Jeez, 2 new posts in the clan forum and I missed both of them! Sorry about that. I'll be paying much closer attention to the forums now that we have new members interested in joining.

I'm located in Saskatoon as well, I'm sure we could meet up sometime to discuss building armour. Typically you start thinking about what type of armour you'd like to do (most people like the modern/Boba Fett style) and also what colour scheme you want to do (this is much tougher to do, so many options hahaha).

Take a look at the costume requirements section to take a look at the different types of armour. http://mandalorianmercs.org/get-involved/costume-requirements/

Nice, none of us have a heavy armour kit within the clan. Looking forward to seeing the build. Any plans on what material you plan to use for your armour? Sintra is a very popular option. It's relatively cheap and is very easy to cut, shape and paint.

Contact Droodles here on the forum, he's in Saskatchewan and makes a couple different helmet styles for a great price.

Metal is cool, we have a few members with steel armour (Fi Beskom'rk (aka The Collector) is one of them). The problem with metal is the weight, it can make it more difficult to stop the plates from shifting around (approval team is very strict about chest plate gaps and placement). Your armour must also have some depth to it, which makes sintra a nice material to work with because you can get 3mm and 6mm thicknesses. Because your steel armour would be so thin, you need to bend the edges to give it depth, which is a lot more work.

I'm not trying to discourage you from using metal, as it looks awesome, just that it's a lot more effort, especially for your first build. Plus you want to do a heavy, which is even more weight with all that extra armour pieces. Remember you are going to be walking around for a couple hours wearing it, you want to remain as comfortable as possible.
