The thread isn't likely to be locked GSR. A couple of us did get a little out of hand debating, but the Mandalorian Protectors will continue to, well, keep on protectin' ;).

Also, well done Kel ;D.

Because of my personal military background, the Mandalorian Protectors have a certain appeal to them, as I consider my character background and so forth...

Though, I have a question about the armor style... The MPs are listed as being in Legacy Era as well, so does that open the door for Legacy Era-style armor? That's the style I'm planning for my kit, because it will probably work best with my body build and because the "traditional" T-visor has a strong potential for making me feel claustrophobic (I get extremely uncomfortable with a limited field of vision, so the "wedge" shaped visors on the Legacy Era stuff is more appealing).

Coming together Mullreel!

And Rabbit, welcome to the boards! While in the comics the vast majority of the Mandalorians in the Legacy issue wore colors associated with the Mandalorian Protectors, they were never named as such in the comic. Because of that, the decision made by the Mand'alor, the Brigidier (sp) and the general consensus of the members is the Legacy Mando's do not count as Mandalorian Protectors.

We do a have Legacy subboard if you'd like to pop in there and see what folks have done and share your idea.

The good news is, if you want to build a Legacy Mando with the armor coverage seen in the comics, you can still join a brigade... the Assault Brigade's Heavy Division is always looking for a few good men and women.

As for your Legacy armor, there are printable, sizeable templates to make some of the armor in the Legacy boards, Forge Props make nearly the full armor for sale and some guy around here resin casts the Hondo Karr and standard style Mando helmets as well.

Well, looks like I found my home thread :rolleyes:
You see, my local vode and I are all basicly mandalorian protectors but in a dquad like in RC with the demolitions guy, slier/mechanic guy, squad sargeant, and the sniper/stealth. Would I still be considered a protector if I were the mechanics guy?  We've all agreed to using the same Krylon Camo specialty O.D. green base btw-just to fit in with the general Protector (olours. I'll be in my armour thread psoting my new colour scheme for now.

Newest pic of the kit. Still waiting on MoW to get some boba style boots in, and want better spats. Also planning on adding half sleeves and shin pockets for tools.

OK guys I'm going to be focusing more on my MP now than my Darman so here's where I'm at:

- Got helmet but needs priming and painting also need to buy T visor and install it.
- Most likely use my Boba gaunts in this build just waiting for answers in my Darman thread.
- Got chest armour but need to buy ( or make) collar and need to buy backplate
- Got knees and shins but need painting
- And I'll be using most if not all soft parts from my Darman for now (But I will probably make a new vest)

This will be a slow-ish build as I also need to save up spending money for holiday in Florida this Oct :P

I am just starting my first kit with my first armor party this coming Saturday. I am using the "Jango_Fett__Armor_X_Large" template and I am going to order a bucket from DeltaSquadBoss soon. The reason I am posting here is that I want to make sure I am on the path to becoming a Mandalorian Protector.

The main tie to the Protector is color... mid green base with either red, yellow (orange) or blue as the primary accent color. Use the typical Fett style armor.

My colors are slightly off from that, but I think they fit in with the photos I see here.

those colors will keep you from being what is canonly defined and recognized as a Mandalorian Protector. the colors are their defining characteristic.

I have the green and the red colors. The only difference is the brown suit, but I think I have seen it in some of the photos in this thread.

The pic looks like you have tan armor unless there's another picture that's missing. Like Falin said, Protectors use green as the base color. Visor trim, gauntlets, knees, and shoulders tend to be one of the highlight colors (blue, yellow/orange, red).
