I wouldn't make it spring-loaded, just retractable. A thumbscrew or something similar to keep it open or closed would probably be enough. They weren't overly fond of my break-action rifle springs and that barely passed "inspection," so I don't think making it spring-loaded would pass  :P

Good to know! I am already looking to my next kit, and trying to muster ideas and get some ground work done in preparation. Thanks a bunch!

Alsa Corp has a lot of fun paints-- only some of them are available in spray-can form though, if you're lazy like me and want to only use what can be found in a spray-can! And anytime!

That'd work a lot better I'd imagine. Also your design is a bit simpler than mine, as mine had the taser needles/points on the knuckles (again, more Black Widow style), but I was struggling to come up with a way to have the gauntlet go over the wrist while still giving me maximum mobility, so I think I'll play around with your idea instead, since it's just a typical wrist gaunt. Thanks!

No problem, the design is going to take a little refining but I'm sure you can make it work!

So I redid the design on the armor and.. WHOAH. I really, REALLY dig it. It looks super segmented to me, which I like. I just took the design from the helmet and patterned it onto the armor.



Will draw up separate plans for the weapons, since they're all very hard to see and not the focus here. May include a half-cape around one of the shoulders, removable of course, in the same color as the loincloth.

... And crap, I forgot to show the backplate. Ahahaha. I'll do that.. later. YEAH. Later. >>

Sweet mother of Keldabe, that is frightening lol remind me to never get tossed in the pokey in YOUR precinct...

Amazing work so far, vod! Another quick suggestion I have is that every jailer needs a ring of keys... Maybe some lit-up swarzy-looking pass cards or code cylinders/identity chips?

Heeeeeeeehehehe thanks 8D I'm really pleased with this. Now if only I weren't a wee little 5'1.5" I'd actually be intimidating!

And a ring of keycards, that's a good idea! I do have those three cylinders on my belt that I wasn't sure what to do with (two of those pouches will be for holding phone and wallet), so maybe I can do something with that...

I've also drawn up rough sketches of the stun baton model (based on the thread I found them in), the neuronic whip, and the taser-gaunt. At present I'm struggling to make the gaunt SW-sy and greebed out enough. The other gauntlet is a comm gauntlet which I've had plans drawn up for for practically forever. Got some good greebs for it. HM.

That's a beautiful design.  And, as Yoda says, "size matters not."  You may be small, but you're mighty.   ;D

Haha height has nothing to do with it, you can still be plenty scary. My one friend is barely five feet tall and a hundred pounds soaking wet, and she can still be a living nightmare if you piss her off  :laugh: And I'm a guy and barely 5'6", so I'm still a lot shorter than most people. I can just jump high enough to side-kick 'em in the face if they remind me of it too much  :P

Can't wait to see those stun-batons, I'm interested to see what you've got in mind for them.

http://mandalorianmercs.org/forum/index.php?topic=103999.0 Roe Mantar's, actually, from the first page of that there thread, is the design I'll be mimicking. Except I do plan to add some sort of grip, just to make them a little easier to hold. (May have to learn to twirl them a la Mockingbird style though.. you can't have batons and -not- twirl them..)

That re-design is awesome and a half! Really like the suggestion of the pass cards too. Little things can elevate a kit far beyond your original concept!

Oya!

Thanks! I found a site that laser etches business cards into plexiglass, and then lights them with LEDs. I found a cheaper, non-laser method for etching (using a dremel), and now I'm just trying to figure out how I can light it without making it bulky.

I found this acrylic which should do the job: http://www.delviesplastics.com/p/Fluorescent_Cast_Acrylic_Sheet.html Probably gonna get it in green, as it looks the most SW-sy.

Also think I'm going to nix the knife, and instead make or buy a pair of in-universe cuffs. Makes more sense for a jailer to have those, after all! Also gonna probably change things so both stun batons are on one hip, the whip on the other, and cuffs and key/pass cards hanging from the belt. (And a d-ring for hanging the helmet somewhere on there too..)
