App team members from my future clan noticed the same thing  ;) problems fixed and app pics sent

Sash shortened, kama/loin backed with leather and chest piece readjusted.  I am really glad the chest was noted. I used two screws one on each side to mount but I didn't realize it had created a pivot point causing it to sit incorrectly.  I put it back into original position and mounted an additional screw to maintain it. Thanks everyone!! Should be final pics up tonight  ;D

Looks great, vod! One thing though, the leather bags and some of the pouches appear to be really clean looking as compared to the torn up kama and weathering on the armor. This might be what you're going for but I think that if some weathering was added to those, it would bring the kit a little bit more together. Just my opinion though. Great work!

App wise I think you're good now.
(I'd add not just the pouches to the weathering, but possibly put a rip or two in the sash too :P )

Now it's time for upgrades!!  First I'll dirty up the leg pouch as its the cleanest. The coin pouch is pretty thrashed and the satchel(purse) is actually pretty whooped too but that leg pouch needs to match  :D

Next I'll be going for a brigade and this is the first step.

As bad-shebs as that is, it definitely looks like a mistake waiting to happen  :laugh:  Try to remember not to lean back on a seat, lol

I agree, it could be something that turns out to bite you in the Shebs!

Nah I got a 14 gauge metal backplate between me and those teeth. The pic was just a mockup of the mounting system that will be under the armor  ;)

Now that is good planning. But are earth animals allowed in the beast tamer/hunter brigades (I'm assuming that's what you're going for)?

Yessir, As with most things in our Mando world a little stretch of the imagination is necessary. The head is from an Accipiptero from the planet Dagobah as seen here  ;D

Would I be amiss recommending you put horns on it, making it look like a young Krayt Dragon skull?  I know, I know, "put horns on it" is my answer for everything... :laugh:

Really, though, it would make it look more in-universe, and would probably look bad-shebs to have a crown of horns poking out from behind you, as well.

Been a long time, too long perhaps but I'm back at it.  A couple years ago what could only be described as my favorite nephew  >:( decided to play with my lid while I was away and subsequently shattered it.  At the time I was already lagging on my mando and decided in anger and frustration to just stop for a very long time.  I ended up moving and tossed almost all of my in progress parts so I am back to basics. Just trying to get those stripes back  :8):

Without further ado here are some progress pics of the new lid...

Lid is looking great so far.
