My kit idea
« on: May 09, 2022, 04:48 PM »
Su cuy'gar. Hope I am doing this right. I wish to start my wip so I thought I would start here. I have my armor ordered. I am to old and do not have the skill set to build my own. I am going for Post Imperial and it will be themed around my Navy experience. A long time ago I was a submarine sailor. My armor will have a black base with blues and greens. Once I recieve to color layout I will post. Here is my armor as boughthttps://imgur.com/a/Zsz3Vsc

So I posted to see if pic would post. It added a link. Ugh. Anyway, I am also having my helemet made and I have my flight suit? Does that go under a different thread? I have seen areas to post for different wips so am I correct in that they go there?

https://imgur.com/a/n7ka8Go This should be my helmet. I also would like to run some name ideas. Like I said I was on submarines. I have tried to find a Mando name that fits that idea. I have two I am asking input
1 Sho’sen Tor which translates to Submarine Justice or 2 Sho’sen Beskaryc  Submarine Armored. I like number 2
Thanks

Names are pretty much up to your personal preference, they aren't strictly required. Either of the options you have works, and it could be something else entirely that sounds Star-Warzy - it doesn't even have to be words in Mando'a. Tor seems pretty common (my own somewhat randomly picked character name has Tor in it) but things are usually popular for a reason.

Depending on how well-fitted  the armor pieces you've purchased come to you, you may have some tweaking to do in order to have them properly fitted. Fit your soft kit to your body first, and then adjust the plates to fit on top of the soft parts. Generally speaking it's much easier to modify existing elements than start from scratch, so working with the pieces you've got will be a great help if you are not confident in your skills yet.

To post pictures:
This is for smart phones, I know it works on iPhones and should work for others as well.
Start by downloading an image storage app. Imgur is recommended. After you download and create an account you can add pictures to your account by hitting the “plus” symbol in the upper right hand side of the screen.
 This will allow you to make an album of pictures.

After you have saved the album and you want to post pictures in the forum you first hit the little picture icon in the forum. It’s above the emojis and looks like a painting of the Mona Lisa.

Then you can go back into Imgur and press and hold on the picture you want to post. That will give you the option to “copy link” hit that and paste the link in between the [ img] [ /img].

 Make sure there are no spaces in the link and then preview your post by hitting the preview button that is below the post button.


Welcome to the mercs! Make sure you also start a work in progress thread on your clan boards so your Ruus’alors can see and help you.

Where did you find the armor and helmet?

Thank you for the info on posting a pic. I will try that later to see if it works. My helmet is being made by Albatross Customs and I showed my clans Ruus. The armor is being made by Caniafe Ordo Forges. Both on Etsy
