Title: Kad Rebo Startings Of Soft Parts
Post by: Kad-Rebo on Dec 23, 2011, 06:18 PM
Ok so my boiler suit arrived today
This is what I've got so far soft parts-wise.
I'll definitely weather the boiler suit.
Any advice as far as alterations and such?
Apart from the sleeves, I'll need to sort them XD

Haha yeah, the folks left it up to me any my brother to decorate it, so needless to say it now has the HBF ontop, a yoda, my Mando Grenade, a Tie Fighter and a Darth Vader in it XD

But as far as the suit is concerned, yeah, I can move really well in it :) I'm amazed how well it fits XD

I fought my GM on that matter in the Star wars rpg. I worked my back story so i could in the game. Long story short, Jedi  with limited force powers.
Said to frack with the light and dark side, Ran away, got picked up by a merc slaver. Cut a deal making jedi light sabers for my life. ( Jedi saber is how you collect the bounty) picked up the merc training because i watched. When the merc was killed (by me) i took his armor, kept training and became a merc. I had the skills to build and use light sabers, Kept me in the credits and in a pintch i would use the light saber as a back up weapon.

Worked great in the game, But i dont think that would fall in real mando style now. But back then there was very little info on the mandos in the game so we just made it up.

I like the jumpsuit by the way. And the cool part about it is if you ever build a ghost buster rig you have the jumpsuit for it.

THAT.
IS.
AWESOME.

As far as my Jedi back story, I was a padawan from Coruscant, before the time of Order 66. After an explosion blinded my best friend and killed his father, he turned to the dark side. I fought with him on several occasions, but as we were originally sparring partners, we were so evenly matched that neither one of us came out on top. At the time of Order 66, my master was killed, and I exiled myself to Endor. I now am on the run from my former best friend (my brothers sith Darth Kyramud)

I like the jumpsuit by the way. And the cool part about it is if you ever build a ghost buster rig you have the jumpsuit for it.

And thanks man :) That'd be awesome!!

That rifle reminds me very heavily of the Brute Spiker from Halo 3/ODST.  Other than that, everything looks good.  :)

Looking good Vod ;D Only 1 thing. The vest may be a bit to long but it depends on how you are planing on doing your plates / girth belt

I would trim that vest down a bit if i were you, to about where your belt is. We don't like seeing vests sticking out from under belts in an Apps.  ;)

Not a problem :) I think the belt will be getting put down a bit anyway, but I reckon it will need trimmed. Thanks :)

The rule of thumb to follow with vests is that the bottom shouldn't drop past your navel

That depends really. If it's Boba style, then yes. Jango style is longer.  ;)

I'm in 2 minds whether I should get the plates painted up before attaching them (just gonna go with the velcro approach) or to attach them, then take them off and paint :s suggestions? Oh, and I've started on my paint buying! Got 2 cans of grey primer and 2 cans of satin black. Next time I go in I'll get the greens, and the time after, the metallics ::thumbsup::

Get the attachments right first, they might need extra molding or trimming. Paint would just crack bro ;)
