Rekirts' Glowing Mando
« on: May 30, 2014, 07:11 PM »
So this is my Mando maker concept, though I plan on doing a sketch soon with all the decals and stuff. Not sure if I'll keep the skulls... but this is the color scheme I hope to go for. I know I can get some glowing paint for the green parts, though I'm not sure if that's against any rules or anything.

"and then one day...I got in" :o

reminds me of TRON vod.

Looks like an interesting concept.

Now that you mention it... I hadn't even thought of that! Also, I'm new here so could you explain what a vod is please? If you're feeling really gracious go ahead and throw some other lingo in there.

vod = bro (kinda)
theres a mando'a (mandalorian language) dictionary/translation guide floating around these forums somewhere, i can never find the thing when i need it, so i just search until i find a close enough approximation to what im trying to say,

Vod actually is brother/sister. As there is no gender specific words in mando'a

Brother/ sister/ friend/ compatriot/ every damn thing but enemy.

Concept looks good.  Go build it. :D

Only the people whose first shot isn't of them trying out armor templates for size.  Color and pattern design are personal choices, and largely secondary for me within the build process.  I get the hard/ heavy work set in motion long before I start playing with specific patterns.  Colors to be used, sure, maybe, but the actual armor itself being constructed properly is paramount to me.

So, that said, print out some templates, and get to work making something solid. :P

I started looking at color schemes just so I could figure out what colors to get for my soft parts.  Your paint scheme may change over time as you think about it more, so at this early stage when you show us your plans on MandoMaker we really can't say more than "cool" or "looks good".  That being said, your question about the glow-in-the-dark paint is a good one.  I don't think there's anything in the CRLs banning it, but it may still be turned down by the approval team because it doesn't seem very practical for a battle-ready Mando.  Check here if you want to see the requirements list, and shoot a message to one of the people listed to ask about the glowy paint if you're unsure.

No lie.  I've never made my opinions and criticisms anything less than plain.  If your kit ain't right, I will let you know.  Given, all criticism I give is given with the best of intentions.  I like to see new OMs come out of the gate already looking fantastic.

Point gotten. Anyways I've got my templates printed out, but I'm not sure if I should wait till I have enough money to buy some armor from the Arsenal, or just try to cut some out on my own. Seeing as this is my first costume ever, I think I want to play it safe and just buy the armor, and maybe experiment down the road a bit when I'm more knowledgeable about this business.

Also glow in the dark is unacceptable, sadly. I guess I'll just stick with plain old neon green.
