I have Open Seasons issues 1-4 in front of me right now. Just flipped through them, and in Issue 1 pretty much every True Mandalorian is in either gunmetal or charcoal grey armor, with either red, yellow-orange, or blue shoulder bells and visor trim.

Issue 2, we see Jango in green with yellow shoulder bells and knees and red visor trim. We also see several folk, Jaster included, in the same gunmetal/charcoal. Now there are more with tri-colors (gaunts and visor trim in red, shoulders and knees in yellow--all three in yellow--red gaunts, yellow shoulders/knees and blue visor trim). The armor ranges from standard Jango medium to Boba light. In some cases, it may just be a matter of the background characters being a uniform color to make them easier to draw and to make the foreground characters pop. However, at other points there are TMs standing side-by-side with different colors.

The Battle of Galidraan, Issue 3. Once again, we see folk in both color schemes; gunmetal/charcoal and green, both with varying gaunts, visor trim, shoulders and knees in red, yellow-orange and blue. Jango appears to be the only one to have red visor trim, red shoulders and red gaunts, with everything else as gunmetal. The others all appear to have yellow shoulders and knees with red gaunts, and varying visor trim from yellow to blue. There's also one mando with gunmetal/charcoal armor, blue gaunts and visor trim with yellow shoulders; Myles, the one that gets bisected by the jedi.

Last, Issue 4, just shows Jango being captured, then put on the slave ship, then escaping to find his 'refurbished armor' all shiny and silver with blue trim.

Edit: So there are definitely more variation than the MPs; I'm inclined to leave them as separate divisions, even though there'll be some overlap between the green TMs and the MPs in general.

Since my kit is based on Boba's armor, just with different colors and a few other accessories, I assume I would fall under this category. Sound right?

True Mandalorians require specific colors and configurations that are from the "Jango Fett:  Open Seasons" comic.  Your configuration would probably be OK Tyrian, but you would need to change your colors to match a set from the comic books.

Well, I say we get the ball rolling on at least a proper color scheme. Debating will only do so much. Here's what I propose.
Plates: Medium Green or Grey
Shoulders and Knees: A Deeper Yellow color, my personal fave is Bauahaus Gold
Visor: Red, Blue, Yellow
Gauntlets: Red

A couple optional things I discussed earlier with A'den was the different color shapes on the chest plate, the yellow diamond, red square, and orangy circle. There one of those things that would help discern TM's from MP's.

I trhink the best yellow match youre going to get is Caution Yellow which I posted in teh MP threads.

Although, before colors are truely settled on, I think we need to (although it's been done before) create a reference pic thread. Every armroed pic from OS needs to be put up for proper review.

The link is good an all, but a lot of people won't click links, or just don't notice them. A'den's got the right of it, needing a specific reference pic thread here on the boards. I can't promise anything today, but if no one else does, in the next couple of days I'll try to collect the armored shots from the first three issues and get them up here in the Canon Brigade board.

There's also the matter of scanned images displayed on monitors not necessarily having the same colour values as the original comics. As with Slade, I've got Open Seasons right here physically.

Maybe my eyes are wonky... In issue one everybody's definitely in shades of grey. But issue two sure looks almost the same -- Jaster and Montross are still definitely grey, anyway. I can maybe see Silas and the rest of Jango's squad being very faintly green-tinged grey, but nowhere near as green as Jango himself. Still looks grey to me, with Jango the only green. Issue three, now that I look more closely, is almost the reverse. Jango is in grey now, and the rest of his Mandos are in some kind of metallic greenish-grey -- but greener than his squad on Korda.

Maybe e-mail the creative team and find out what they intended?

No'saj Huune has Open Seasons scanned into his computer already, and has offered to post up a reference thread tonight when he gets the chance. Granted, as Pere brought up, different monitors are going to show the colors slightly different, but it'll give an easy to access visual reference. Personally, I'd be inclined to say that either a dark grey or mid green (Boba-esque) should be the primary colors with the red, blue or yellow-orange (Caution Yellow, as A'den suggested) secondary colors.

The grey kits all appear to have the shoulders and visors matching, while the gauntlets and knees are the same grey as the rest of the kit. Montross, however, has blue visor, what appear to be blue knees and blue wraps or simple bracers, depending on the frame. Then there's Myles, in Issue 3, with blue visor and gaunts, but yellow shoulders and grey knees. All of the lads in green have the red gauntlets, yellow shoulders and knees and blue, red or yellow visor trim. There's even one, in issue three, that appears to have a green visor, but that could just be the artist's attempt at showing the reflection of the lightsaber that a jedi is using to slash his throat.

No, it's Montross; it's clearly stated in the word bubbles. Blue seems to be the Second In Command colors. Myles becomes Jango's second after Jango takes over the TMs.

About the earcaps -- I said earlier in this thread that the artists did not draw the earcaps accurately in any panel -- including Jango at the end, when his gear was theoretically the same stuff he was wearing in AOTC.

I think the visor colours are possibly trickier, or indicative of something outside the TM organization. We saw Jango in red throughout his time in armour, up until the governor of Galidraan restored his armour, when it was made blue... and he didn't re-paint it red. He had just been made a squad leader in issue #2, but in the one detail shot of his helmet prior to them going into action shows paint damage to the red. And Montross -- the other squad leader -- still has blue.

Has any mention been made so far about the open circle/rectangle/diamond on the chest of the squad leader, and the filled shape on the shoulder plate(s) of the squad members -- at least if one is doing a Korda-era TM...

I think I might fall under Spec Ops then because my character specializes in close quarters, melee, hand to hand combat and extraction.
