UPDATE! seriously, your helmet looks SICK! 8)

-Kane

Thanx, ner vod. Yeah, I'm really happy I got the ComMando when I did. As for my plans for mods. I have my dremel. I'm just waiting to get the free time to devote to this part of the project. I think I'm gonna focus on other parts so I can really get used to the different options available from the dremel accessory kit I bought.

I'm kinda intimidated cuz its such an awesome bucket.
  :P.
Stay tuned...

Just got cleared by Ick'tan Wesdar himself to use this in universe explanation for the ComMando. Sweet!

So if anyone's interested in using it as well, feel free.

So in my story, the ComMando was commissioned by Zul's grandfather Raddam Veyrde, and his father Jinn Veyrde, who, with a few trusted friends and collaborators worked with Clones after Order 66 to help them safely escape the New Empire. As an homage to their heritage while showing support and solidarity, they produced the ComMando, a fusion of the traditional Modern Mandalorian buy'ce and the Clone Commando's distinctive helmet design.

What do you guys think?

Ok, you might or might not appreciate me saying this... It looks odd.
The cuts are rough and very asymmetrical, the helmet itself looks rough, like it needs some more sanding and filling, and I personally think it doesn't look much like a Mandalorian helmet.  :-\
I suggest maybe doing some sanding work and smoothing it out a little better, and looking into making the visor more T shaped, instead of surprised-looking-ghost-thing shaped.

That is a lot of vents(I honestly don't know what to think. on one hand it seems over done on the other is looks bad-A). They need to be touched up too.

Appreciated. Yes I have sanding to do, I kmow. The visor "ghost face" thing is pretty funny. I actually will be painting a mythoskull on the helmet to follow the lines of the faceplate and mandibles.

I has plans. :D

Guys, let's make sure our criticism is constructive please. I don't want to see anyone badmouthing someone else's work. Whether you appreciate it or not is beyond the point - if you're going to take the time to post, make sure it is worthy of being posted and helps the topic starter with their project in some way. Simply posting 'I don't like it' or even "I love it" does absolutely nothing to help the original poster towards their goals. Make sure your thoughts are worth sharing, please.

Thanx Bio.

As for the naysayers..  I've repeatedly mentioned how aware I am of the work I need to do. If you don't like what you see so far, lucky you its not your bucket, then. As for those who've offered CONSTRUCTIVE CRITIQUES, I thank you for your input and shall continue on.

That is all.

I like the skull motif, I'd just be worried about the whole "Gruesome" rule (as that helmet does look very realistically skull-like at this point. If you re-paint it may not though).

Will you be evening-out the lumpy dome (that all ComMandos tend to share)? Or will you keep it to go with the skull design?

Keep up the good work vod!
