I like the sigil detailing. Nice.

After 5 hours of taping, you better like it.  ;)

I just read through all of Blackbird's Beast Master brigade stuff, and I was inspired. I want to make this kit into an Aquatic Beast Master.

So here are some ideas I've been coming up with.

I started working on a jet pack a while back ago, but it'll make a better oxygen tank. It was the center of vacuum.

I have an old M1 frame kicking around the house, and I want to build a harpoon gun out of it. I'm going to make a cover for the barrel so the harpoon sticks out but rope is covered.

On the other side is where the ammo was loaded, (or something like that. It looks like it's where the bolt came down in a bolt action rifle, but I'm not good with guns.) I'm going to make a hook of some sort coming out of that with rope coiled around it. The rope will lead into the barrel located under the cover to the harpoon. So when, "fired," the harpoon would launch and the rope would follow with it.

Here are the Harpoons. I haven't even begun working on these because the weather has been cold. The smaller harpoon is actually an XL poison dart for those bigger fish that Liam Neeson mentions. I'm particularly proud of myself for this find:




I went to iParty  this weekend and picked up this huge rubber snake.



I want to cut it off right where my hand is and hang it off a hook like this.


My only problem so far is that I don't know what that hook is called, so I can't buy one. Does anyone know?

you should probably just make a plastic one or something rather than use a real metal meat hook. event security anywhere would have a heart attack if you carried that thing around.

I actually just thought of a way. I'm going to take a run of the mill S hook, and put a hole into some plastic/wooden/metal rod and insert it. Giving it the aesthetic appearance of a meat hook, while being extremely dull.

I finished most of my designs and concepts the other night, and decided to post them.





I can't decide on which loincloth to go with, the second one is scalemail. I have also obtained a few sweet pieces.

A pair of boots for $10. I thought they were wicked swarzy.



From the salt on the roads, they have this sweet weathering that I would love to preserve. Any ideas?



A stitched leather belt. It'll look awesome on the BM kit.





Feedback rules!

If those cocept pics don't fix themselves, here's a link.

Concept looks good. I would make a couple of suggestions though since youre going for an aquatic theme...

Dont use leather. Normally Im all about leather but, for being an aquatic warrior it doesnt make good sense. Change anything leather to nylon.

For the boots as well, I would try to find something like a set of aquatic shoes or diver suit shoes instead of leather boots.

Keeping with th elegacy armor is fine but, I would cut down to light armor instead of a heavy armor configuration.

Think about replacing the loincloth with either a cod plate or a soft cod (like the "diapers" the Scout Troopers wear).

When you get to your flightsuit, this would definatly be a costume where a fitted bodysuit would be preferable to a fabric flightsuit.

I did actually think of the leather thing, It just seams like a chore to have to get cool looking aquatic boots, especially for a half decent price.

Cutting the armor down to light is only an issue on a personal level. I can't say I've ever seen a light legacy kit. I feel like it would look funny to have a nearly sealed chest and nothing on the legs, but the scuba troopers do it, so I'll give it a try.

I'll look into a cod, because a soft cod sounds god awful. haha

I don't know about the body suit. I'm a small guy. So the Legacy already looks a tad bit funny, but I'll definitely look into it.

Not at all .....You could make Quite a Comfortable and Good looking Boot from Water shoes and neoprene some fabric .
It doesn't have to to be Water tight , it's a costume .

Or you could ditch the hoses and do a Captain Ahab type character instead of a scuba guy.

After a quick google search, I assume you're suggesting the Captain of the ship in Moby Dick, and not the electrica band. I honestly like that Idea better because it means I can keep my leather (<3), my flight suit, and have heavy armor.

What do you think so far BB?

I really like what I've seen so far. The snake on a hook is a good idea and of course your paint job and actual armor is great looking. I can't wait to see the spear gun.

A sort of Ahab type character would let you keep your leather parts and heavy armor, like you've said. Maybe consider a Quint (from jaws) type sea monster hunter kind of thing. Or look at whalers or fishermen. I think the gruff, scarred up, kinda nutty loner fits with the Mando thing.

Of course these are only suggestions.  This is your character and your kit so do whatever feels right for you.
