So, it says that a Duster is allowed in place of a back plate for medium and light. What about a trench coat? They're essentially the same thing, but a Duster is longer and is a bit less decorative. It's not that big of a difference, I'd just like to clear it up so I don't make any incorrect assumptions.

I'm not so sure about a trench coat, I mean I could easily see an arctic mando using one. Maybe if you turned the coat into some kind of coat + kama, I know Xyyyr the Jawalorian used a Jawa like cloak (kind've like a trench coat). Also, you could wear a backpack instead of a backplate.

I'm not so much looking for a substitute for a back plate as I am for a way to use materials I already have, such as my trench coat.

I think for point and purpose, duster and trench coat are interchangeable. The only difference is trench coat (heavier) is designed for military use and duster (lighter) is designed for riding horses. There a number of Mercs with long coats on the forums here. Jacen Rangir of the FireStorm Clan is an example.

Could a Kama be added to light armor? I like a stripped down armor look as I tend to favor blitz tactics, but I also like Mando armor with a Kama.

Kamas aren't armor so you can add a kama to any class

Exactly.   Kama's arent armor.  They're an accessory ;)    You can armor a kama,  but its still a Kama.

Hello, im new to this website and love the mandalorian mercs idea. Mandalorians always popped out at me when i saw the movies my favorite character was always Jango Fett. I'm 13 years old and I am 5 foot 3 and a half. I dont really know how to measure anything such as plates and helmets (btw im going for the light style of armor) So could anyone help me with sizing for plates and helmets. As well as what materials to use and accurate pricing for a full set of armor. If anyone could tell me any of this information and have any videos showing how to size and make armor or anything like that it would be much appreciated. Thank you very much

most of what you looking for is here
The rest we will be happy to assis with, but the best people to help will be clan mates in your area: Regions and chapters

Hope it helps, also being 13 you'll have plenty of time to perfect your kit till your 18 and can become official member, in that time you'll be  verd'ika corps which is still pretty cool ;D

    Is buying laceless boots acceptable for the light armor acceptable? Or do we have to make the *Boot armor*

No. You will be kind of in between light and medium.

As Tom told me a while ago.
Boba is light,

Medium is a minimum of Jango, maximum Jango with bicep plates and upper Georgette (Collar plates kinda like a dog collar)

Heavy armour is the above. but with wrap around thigh, shin and bicep plates.

So you won't be medium, unless you've met a Jango set minimum.

So, if I were to set up a "medium" kit, with jango style thighs, and then added bicep plates, would I be considered heavy? I'm trying to build my kit so as to eventually join the mechanic brigade, but they're required to have light-medium armor... but I want bicep plates  :rolleyes:

I believe that unless you have ALL of the required plates for the next step up, you're still classed as the lower.  So, for example, though my kit has shnees, biceps, a double shoulder, and neck armor, I'm still classed as light because I don't have thighs  :laugh:
