Few things to report vode my college tutor has said i've got to come up with completely original designs for my plates so if anyone can provide some inspiration from members that don't have standard plates it would be apreciated. Also can someone explain the flack vest I don't get where it goes. So back to the plates i'll still buy my helmet and i'll submit it to the mercs with non-standard plates and i'll submit it without my bucket as college work then i'll make standard plates at a later date.

There's not a great deal you can do, if you want this to become official. They still have to look like Mandalorian plates. What you can do is add to them, emboss them, stylalize the plates, but must represent Mando plates.

Best thing for you to do is throw up some designs and let us see what you come up with.

Does anyone know if sandblasting is any good for weathering?

I would only lightly dust my plates with it and combine that with more conventional weathering.

What actual colour theme you going for?

just wondering if you sandblasted it lightly you could actually go for a desert style so if the sandblast got too hard/heavy  :o then it would seem apt

anyways thats what i thought when u mentioned sandblasted  8)

have you tried using black brown and other earthly colored spray paints?! different distances from your armor will give you different weathering. alot safer on your kit than sand blasting
