Thanks man I hope it gets approved and that my other one gets approved to. Hopefully they can start a clan here! And thanks again for the pouches they completed the kit!

Linking your pics here so others can have a look 8) Some people here don't like chasing links :rolleyes: (for future reference, you just need to copy the [ IMG] tag and paste that here)







As for my comments on the kit, it looks great, but I have a feeling you'll have to reapply after a few fixes.
-Shoulder plates appear to sit a little too far back (that may just be an "IMO" thing)
-Chestplates spacing/positioning could use a little tweaking. Does the Ab plate come down to your belly button? There's a lot of space between your ab plate and belt which could cause your app to be kicked back.
-Carbon Fiber may be deemed to "earthly". I really hope not, because it looks great, but there's a chance.
-The lighting also makes it a little difficult to see the one side of you. You may be asked to retake pictures.

Otherwise, the weathering looks good, weapons are cool, leg wraps are awesome, and overall I like it! :D

Thanks a lot this was my first post and I wasn't sure how to do the pictures. And for the armour, the ab plate does got to my belly button and ya I wasn't wearing the belt properly. Hopefully I'll still get approved I'll take better pics then and I hope the carbon fibre is ok I really like it so fingers crossed!

Good luck, man! I've heard sometimes they request some additional pictures to clarify things, rather than making you resubmit completely, but I've heard that kinda second hand so I can't prove anything :P

It'll be sweet to have another OM here in Vancouver! Keep an eye on the BC boards, there's an Armour Party coming up possibly ;)

that is true, the app team does occasionally ask for specific area clarification pics.

Oh... a mando who comes with a built-in garotte.     insurance against turning your back to an enemy left they choke you with your own scarf? :p  :laugh:

Looks good.

Your backplate idea is really great. I love the double blades, vod. Great job!

wow, this looks really good. :o you've got an eye for detail sir, the whole thing just looks top notch. I can see a few *minor tweaks* that you might need before submitting, but you've done an excellent job. jedi better beware with you on the hunt ;)

Your shoulders should come forward a bit, they're hard to see in the front picture.
Your Knees are touching the shins, bring those up a bit, might want to add a little patch of velcro to the knee to help them sit where they're supposed to(knees are a tricky bugger. I got dinged on my first app submission for the same thing, learn from my mistake! lol)
I can't tell if you have a groin plate or not. if you want a soft covering, ie loin cloth, you need a little more coverage there
***side bar, if you intend to go for the force hunter brigade(which is optional but appears the direction you're leaning) you will need a hard cod plate.
slide the belt rig up to cover that gap between ab plate and belt.
those shouldn't take more than maybe a day of tweaking. seriously nice kit though :)

Mine got dinged too, some minor adjustments on the helmet and a fix on the placement of my ab plates. But other than that re app should be simple. Can't wait to join the crew!

Sweet.   If either of you want eyes on before you resubmit, post them here and we'll pick them apart :P 

Curious, was the carbon fiber an issue?    I would expect them to say it was too "earthy"
