Vhekad Cabur, The Desert Mando(pic heavy)
« on: Dec 01, 2014, 06:26 AM »
Alright guys I am going to build a mando, don't know how fast or slow the process will be but I will take it as it comes and goes. I have a basic concept for my armor design and functionality. My mando obviously from the title of this is going to be desert, thought process is like a sniper/krayt dragon and other desert creature hunter. First I just want to build my armor and get approved and worry about sniper or beast hunter brigade later  ;D my color scheme wil be primarily tan with secondary brown and tertiary orange. I will post a couple pictures later so you can get a better idea of what I mean, but basically my profile pic with minor alterations. I have been and am looking around for how to make and where to buy different parts for my kit and any suggestions on reputable sellers and tutorials is highly appreciated. well thank you for your time and I can't wait to get this ball rolling  :D

A great way to learn is to look at others build threads, as for sellers, most of the people selling on here are pretty good, occasionally someone will fall behind and there will be a slew of issues, but take a look at the tradings station, there are about 10 good bucket dealers and a few good armor makers (although I'd suggest making your own armor, it's a lot cheaper)

Definitely, most of my time on here I am looking at other people's WIP's. It has been very helpful. There have been a handful of buckets I have been looking at for sale on here and they are all just dollars in difference so I guess now I just need to choose which style I want to go with. I was talking to FettSki the other day and he gave me some great advice on how to make my own armor. I just can't decide whether I want to try and go with metal armor or 6 mil sintra, I held some 3 mil sintra armor the other day and it was just too thin for my taste.

For your first go I'd say go with 6 mil, unless you really know how to work metal

You need to put the pics up on a site like Photobucket & then posting the img code in your post. As a fellow Desert Mando, I'm lookin forward to seeing what you have planned!

I have been admiring your kit Nassad Tal, some of your accessories have been an inspiration to my design  :D I hope mine turns out just as nice as yours 8) I tried photo bucket and those didn't post right so I then tried flicker and those obviously haven't posted right either, not sure what I am doing wrong :/ I am using the [img.][/img.] With the url link from the sites (minus the periods) am I doing something wrong?

Thanx for the compliment ner vod!

With photobucket, you want to copy the pic link at the bottom of the selections you have, then just paste that link in the body of your response

Hope this helps

Are you useing the main URL or are you useing the URL provided for you on the side next to the image, I'm talking about photobucket here. Also are you trying to do it from your phone it won't work, so if you are I sugest you to use a computer insted.

I use the photobucket app & mobile site on my phone all the time...never had an issue. Pretty sure the img code is the same

 I think I got it! Thanks for the advice :) this is the very basic design. The boots are actually going to be tan. I would like to have double stacked shoulder plates, a quarter cape like boba, and there will be many a cool greebs on my gaunts (design pics coming, once made)   


these are the jumpsuit and boots I have and the DC-15A is actually for my GM that I have been building for the 501st, I may or may not use it for this as well


 
Here is the westar 34 I have been working on that I plan to have in a jango style holster, still has some work(filling holes and more paint, that's just primer)
