Kae'Mori - Build Thread (Formally Vicecreed)
« on: Aug 27, 2013, 10:03 PM »
Quick back story/bio and basic idea behind Kae'Mori's armor and colors.

Kae'Mori served as a enlisted(non clone) trooper during the later half of the Clone Wars.
Serving with his friend and mentor, Jedi General Vicecreed.
When Order 66 was iniated Kae, Vice and a Clone by the nickname of 'Digger' escaped the purge and laid low in the Outerrim for several years until the initial purge had calmed down.
While playing hide and seek from the Empire during this time, Vicecreed ran into a shunned Sith by the name of Shry.
Feeling betrayed and abandoned Vicecreed welcome the training of the Darkside from Shry.
But before Vicecreed could finish his training, Shry killed him and Digger, Kae'Mori just barely making it out alive.

Vicecreed left out on his own, stumbling upon a small Mandalorian clan and taking up training with them.
He swore to return and make Shry pay for what he did to his former mentor and friends.
While he was a Trooper, he wore blue markings on his traditional white armor.
Wanting to be remembered for what he formally was, he reversed the colors on his Mandalorian armor.
Also choosing to wear the heaviest armor he could muster.
He modified a Magnadroid Electrostaff for battles against Lightsabers.
Kae'Mori hunts any and all users of the Force, both Jedi, Sith and everything between.
Believing Force Users selfish pride as a whole was responsible for the downfall of the once great Republic he served.

Excellent concept. Can't wait to see actual plates rather than the sketches you've shown me. :)

Also, in my personal opinion, I wouldn't do a white vest with your color scheme. The accents you have thus far are perfect and I feel that a white vest would be too much white on you. Stick to darker colors for the soft parts, it will make the markings pop way better.

I agree with the trophy maker, a white vest and kama would be a little over kill. Perhaps a royal blue for both of them with white accents? Kinda like the animated clone kama

Disagree. Lighter coloured soft parts photograph better, show up weathering better.

I would however not go for plain white, I would go for a light grey.

Light gray is what I'm looking at for the vest and kama, kind of a "neutral" color IMO


Small update, Monday my Chest/Ab, Shoulder, Bicep, Gauntlets, Thigh, Knee and Shin armor will be started by a gentlemen I met on Instagram/Facebook(not sure if he's on here, or wants to be named right now).
He is supposed to start Monday and send me some progress pics which I'll post up here.

Only pieces I'll need now is a back plate(going to be custom made with integrated jetpack), boot cover and cod plate.
Even more awesome is he's allowing me to make a few payments on the kit :)

Next gotta figure out a flightsuit that fits my big belly lol


On a side note, just so this post isn't completely photo/progress-less.

Here is my LD-9 blaster pistol I'm working on, got it all put together just need to use some spotting putty to fill the seams of the two halves and where I chopped up the scope that was on top of the gun for the barrel.
Then I can finish painting it.

*EDITED photo to show what's what in the sketch*

Concept I've drawn out(badly I might add).
This is looking at the left side as if it was laid with the left side on top of the right side.
I already know I want to have the cod plate attached to the belt(person I'm getting my armor from does his this way), and the Kama will be attached to the belt from inside, then fold over the outside of the belt.

Anyhow.
What you see in the picture is a armor plate attached to the upper 2/3rds of the side of the Kama.
My idea is to just attach it by the top of the plate, so it can move independent of the Kama so it wont bind up.
Not only is it used for protection(thigh armor is only covering front of thighs) but the left side will store my collapsible Force Pike when not in use.


Comments?

Who has a few updates?
THIS GUY!
Well sort of, Otec Kalamu is currently making my armor for me.
Now I've never met him before, and just know him from Instagram mostly.
But this Vod is one of the coolest Mando's around  8)

He's making for me;
*Chest/Collar/Ab
*Shoulders
*Biceps
*Gauntlets
*Cod
*Thigh
*Knee
*Shin
*Boot covers


Anyhow, here's some of the parts he's got so far.
Chest/Cod

Boots

Shin and Cod again


Should have the armor in a few weeks as soon as I've paid it off :)
I can't wait!
Working on finding a Flightsuit right now, having issues with sizing, not sure if I'm getting my chest/waist sizes wrong or what but I get a different size depending on if I go by chest or waist size.

And then I gotta get a vest, isn't there a member here who makes vests on the forums?



On a side note, completely redid the padding in my bucket so I can see out of the horizontal line of the T-visor now YAY!


Well that's all I have for right now.
