Hey I'm curious about warp around armor. I want to do a heavy armor build and instead of individual plates I'd like to use wraparound. Would building armor like that stop me from becoming an official member?

Nope, Look up Talos Kot, very enclosed but remember to keep it mando looking and not cross into stormie looking  ;)

Awesome!!!    I really like the look of his kit and am excited to start on my own.

This post is regarding the heavy armor class and recently released (or leaked idk) images of a "heavy Mandalorian" Black Series figure. This new figure comes from the new "The Mandalorian" series. I will post the images below with some interesting things I noticed. Just thought this would be good to post since it's a new design, and now canon.



Here we can see the full figurine and the extent of his armament. He certainly is a heavy Mando. It's hard to tell but he has a jetpack on his back and some sort of hopper for his belt fed blaster.



This image is actually my favorite because the box art shows particular detail on the helmet. (PS if anyone begins making these plz let me know)
The helmet looks a lot like the Mando Stalker helmet from NME props, but with the normal domed shape, and normal ear greebles. Although, it seems like there are some things attached to those greebles, one of them being a range finder. (I had originally posted the full box art, but I replaced it with a photo of the figurine/box itself. I'm not certain that the box art itself is meant to be shared yet, and I wanted to respect the artist. However, there are plenty of images around the net of the figure in the box so that's what I've chosen to post instead.)

I think for point and purpose, duster and trench coat are interchangeable. The only difference is trench coat (heavier) is designed for military use and duster (lighter) is designed for riding horses. There a number of Mercs with long coats on the forums here. Jacen Rangir of the FireStorm Clan is an example.

I know Iím several years late to this, but Iím honored to be used as an example.

I had already started a light armor build, something that would fit into an Assassin or Gunslinger category, how do I go about posting  pics to see if I'm on the right track?

If you read first post it's a pretty clear guide.
Boba is light
Jango is medium
Full coverage is heavy.
If you have yet to gain minimal coverage to get next stage then you are still lower level.
Eg, jango without thigh plates is considered light still.

Posting pictures wise then you need to look at forum rules and guides.

Also look up local clan and post there,  they will help you and building with vode is far more fun than on your own  ;)

Thanks, I did attend an armor building get -together , but I was looking for specifics on Assassin and or Gunslinger kits, weapons etc. If there are any? Or Is there a way to contact someone in any one of those groups to get more detail?
Thanks again

If you became a supporter of the forum you would be able to access the Brigades area of this forum.
But I strongly suggest you first aim for clearance at a basic level first and then upgrade to Brigades with a new wip there so we can help you develop further ;)

Would segmented upper torso armor still qualify for heavy? Or does it have to be one piece?

It depends on the level of coverage of the rest of you, not what style of torso you use

So you're saying I can use segmented torso armor for Heavy class?

If you are doing a modern era kit, you can use any approved modern style torso armour and it will not have any effect on whether the overall kit is counted as light or heavy armour.
You can use Legacy style, which is full cover segmented if you wish to. It is the amount of armour not the style that counts for cover.

Please refer to first post: Is my armour light, medium or heavy?

Essentially Kris is right as per, type of armour has nothing to do with if light, medium or heavy but is more coverage.
The first post gives rough visual examples of what coverage is needed as well as parts required.

Hope it helps  :like:

Heavy armor question
« Reply #134 on: Mar 07, 2020, 01:18 PM »
I'm planning to do a heavy trooper build, I've looked at the helmet requirements but I'm asking just to be sure. I found a base helmet I like that I want to add on toand was wondering if it's acceptable
https://www.etsy.com/listing/536900964/mandowar-wnew-mouthpiece-mandalorian?show_sold_out_detail=1&frs=1

Also I'd like to make a heavy blaster like paz vizla and was wondering if it's also acceptable
