Thinking of going TM !
« on: Aug 20, 2011, 08:30 PM »
I am thinking of turning my kit to True mandalorian spec's .  I know i need to change the belt and holster's i have to brown leather etc , but could i keep the strapping on the shin's as long as they hold pouches etc ? Im thinking of doing the ( ) marking's on the chest plates in the same blue as the rest of my kit.  Would it be better if i kept the shoulder bell's and knee's the same blue ? . Cheer's ,

The squad symbols look to be hand-painted on honestly.

Definitely agree on the hand-painted squad leader symbol. In the comic, looks like they were just slapped on right before the mission in question, just a sort of quick addition. On the shin pouches, I'm sort of on the fence. I suppose if they're the same leather/faux-leather as the belt pouches and aren't too bulky/obtrusive I'd agree to let them slide. I'd like to still allow for some wiggle room, as they do in most real military units as well.

I had a look at the open seasons comics and the ( ) looks more of a circle and overlap's the ab-plate too.

True, it might be better referred to as an O sigil rather than ( ).

I'd say more art inconsistencies. I like the O better than the ( ), but the ( ) makes more sense because of the [ ] etc on other kits.

Even that second bit of artwork looks like a circle, just broken by the edges of the plates. The same can easily be argued of the other two symbols (a diamond for Jaster, a square for Montross). Whenever they're shown head on and close up, it looks like they're meant to be those actual shapes.
