Overall, looking pretty good dude!

I would agree with what you noted already. With how you did the weathering on the legs, the dark weathering on all the seams makes it look kind of cell shaded, might need to either darken other areas of try to lighten that back up some more.

Personal choice, but when kitting up, I would sag the girth belt a little bit so it pops out underneath your belt like ESB Boba's. His girth belt essentially covers the top half of the cod plate.

Thoughts is that this kit looks mighty empty without a JP, Cape or poncho :P

Overall, just focus on your posture, but you look good. Highly recommend a thumb hole stirrup for the sleeves to get em further into the gauntlets. Also weather your butt.

Duuuuuude. You are looking fresh!! Also I agree with Bryn on the first part lol I have currently 2 side mounted rocket packs in the works (depending on how that look when I am finished, I might keep one which would mean the one I currently use for my Protector kit would be for sale if you would potentially be interested)

Overall, weathering looks awesome as does plate placement. I think you're good to go there but don't forget that a Boba thong is required haha

What's next on the to do list?

I agree :laugh: Cape and Kama is in the process of being sewn and the JP next on the list. Also butt weathering, check!

So reading the BRLs I’m seeing this: “Boba-thong is not required if using a Jango Fett style cod plate without the kidney armor.”

I guess the question would be, is my cod considered “jango style”? I’m not going to be using kidney armor for the time being.

I’ve got a raw Fett style JP currently but depending on price and all that fun stuff i could be interested in your offer! It might help pull me away from the very strong Fett vibes I’m giving off  :laugh:  Just let me know.

I love your kit, ner vod! Just to clarify, you used an airbrush for all your painting, correct? And where'd you get your flight suit?

Hey sorry vod I didn't see your questions!

The armor is rattle can, Rustolium and Montana gold. And then weathering is a mixture of black/brown washes and airbrush.

The flight suit is from Man of War studios.

I've got some soft part updates

One neck seal.


And a cape.

Hey everyone, long time no talk. :laugh:

Got a question on holsters the BRLs mentioned all canon holsters being accepted but what's the ruling on custom ones. I have this one for my mentor blaster based off that 1313 game.

Thoughts on using this?

Since the blaster is semi canon, I think we allow this holster. My one recommendation to make the holster match the Protector style holsters is to eliminate the leg loop.

Tossing around jetpack colors since it's the last big thing I need to finish before applying. And since the BRL says the colors are to be approved by the brigade Marshall I thought I'd toss up what I've been thinking.





Please excuse the crude MS paint mock up :laugh: I think im leaning towards the first one, the second is a bit too close to Fett's. I still think the first needs a color (blue? Green?) to tone the brightness down but it's a start.

Aaaaaaaaaw yeah dude!

I think slapping more light blue on there would really cool and harken back to the comics more or even adding in some purples.



You can see more photos from the OG comics here, if the link works.

Thanks Fenn! That link is very helpful, I'll play around with some purple and light blues, I was struggling to pull it out of Boba's JP territory and that might do the trick.

Added purple and messed around with the blue, I might try swapping the yellow for red?

Honestly, yellow for the red or maybe even doing that section green would be cool.

The main body of the jet pack is finished.



I tried the blue and really didn't like the look so I went back to the green.
