The Mandalorian Canon Grunt Question(s?)
« on: Nov 15, 2021, 07:52 PM »
Hello all! Ive decided I want to make a post imp, but upon figuring out what i want to do (canon vs custom), i started to have so many questions for canon costumes for the mandalorian.

Basically what makes a death watch kit a death watch kit? Is it the paint scheme to follow the same with the rankings? Is it the style of armor itself? Can bo/koska chest be used for a death watch and be canon?

The questions arose when i wanted to make a canon death watch but have a chest, and then scrolling through show images, realized Axe Woves (who is not nite owl, hes only clan kryze and mandalorian resistance) wears the exact death watch style of kit but kryze colors. There is custom art for a female with death watch plate kit but custom colors from the covert, but she never made it on screen except her helmet. The only ones who fully wear very different style plate kit and mix and match are covert ones/people who are not of a specific clan/group. So what dictates a kit death watch, and with that, what dictates a kit to be nite owl?

Hi Ara,
The main difference between Canon and custom is what you see in reference materials, like on screen or in comic images. For a Canon build, the kit needs to closely match the references down to smallest details on all sides meeting CRLs.

For a custom build, you can mix and match details you like to make the kit what you want as long as it meets the CRLs.  It sounds like the build you want to do would fall into the custom side. You can use elements of what you see in the show including paint schemes, as long as you don’t copy exactly what’s on screen, that would be a failed canon kit.

We highly recommend working with your local Ruus’alor.  They can guide you as you build, to make sure your kit meets CRLs and is approvable as you go.

Hope that helps!

Rayne, explained it perfectly, you can draw inspiration from a Canon kit and mash it up into a custom kit as long as you make sure you have distinguishable differences between the two, inverted paint schemes, mismatch armor, different style helmet, just some examples.

Seems everything you've outlined, Ara, would be for a PI custom.

The way I read it, you're interested in mixing and matching elements of Death Watch and Bo/Koska Armor. The app team is currently talking about changes and additions we want to make to PI from things we saw in season 2 of The Mandalorian.

If you wanted to go Canon Live Action DW, you'd need to match the Mandos we saw in Din's flashback which has Din's pre-beskar chest,etc painted that Montana Shock Blue Middle Molotow paint with the white markings. Same goes for any of the trio we saw in "The Heiress".

Oddly enough, Axe is a mix of repainted/reused DW parts and Din Season 2 costume pieces.

Bo and Koska are their own thing.

Bo and Koska are their own thing.

So this is where I had the question spawned from. Axe wears a DW kit all the way down to handplate (which is all different from bo/koska) but is not DW. Even has same jetpack as DW instead of bo/koska who are confirmed nite owls, and he is confirmed clan kryze as they are. Im suspecting the colors being the same between him and bo/koska is what relates him to the clan, and not having the nite owl sigil that only bo/koska has denotes that he is not a nite owl. He was mandalorian resistance though against maul, which as we all know, are mixed members of og death watch and og nite owls that split after maul killed paz. Din's armor though for v1 is also DW but with then a few custom plating, mix and matching, just like the other members of the covert who are not part of a single clan or DW or anything like that. Bo, Koska, and armorer are the only two women in any mandalorian kit currently.

My idea would be a DW kit in colors, ranking symbols, handplate specific, ect...but literally change just the chest plate as one who has a prominent chest and cant flatten it without pain after a few hours, and if that still sticks to canon seeing how the show has been following their different ways to show how one is like the other or different, etc.
