Basicly, if you have all this at minimum, its heavy:

Heavy Armor

•Head - Helmet
•Neck - Neck armor. ARC-style pauldrons are allowed in addition to collar plates, but not in lieu of.
•Upper Torso - Chest plates and abdomen
•Full shoulder - Heavier style shoulder bell that covers the entire shoulder
•Bicep - Bicep armor or elbow and shoulder armor that end up covering this gap
•Forearm - Gauntlets
•Back - Back plate. Capes are allowed in addition to back plates, but not in lieu of.
•Groin - Cod plate. Loincloths are allowed in addition to cod plate, but not in lieu of.
•Thigh - Standard plate coverage or enclosed
•Knee - Separate knee armor or extended shin armor
•Shin - Standard shin type coverage
•Boot - Some form of boot armor
•Backside - Kama or enclosed thigh armor and butt armor

So if I read the correctly, if I add a kama but not a butt plate and larger shoulders, it's still medium. Lol, if someone implemented everything on that list I think you would still be shy of heavy due to lack of butt plate?

I believe a Kama counts as both butt armor and thigh armor.

Now I'm a little confused. I saw earlier that a kama did not count as armor. I'm fine with it counting as it, but I need to know one way or the other. I think I'll go ask some questions over in Brigade Chatter...

I just had a thought. In the definition of heavy that Ashen put up (which is taken from the first post I believe) had a kama or enclosed thighs AND butt plate. If this language is correct then I'm still within the medium specs IMHO. Thoughts?

yes its kama......... or ........... butt plate and enclosed thigh plates.

If you have neither of those you can still do weapon master as medium.

If your weapon master you don't need that much armour anyway, will slow you down

Ok. Still trying to come to terms with ditching the kama from my kit, but you're right, a kama will most likely slow me down.

It's worth noting that only having full arm coverage on one side does not push you into heavy armor. Heavy requires both.

But with all that out of the way, you really should look at becoming cleared as an OM first and then look at upgrading.

I am. I've got a kit in process now. I wasn't going to go straight to WM. I was going to put a kama and neck armor in my OM kit because they were easy, and do the rest after I get OM. The trick is knowing where to stop with OM. Lol.

Looking to start a medium Jango style build. Does anyone know if there are any paper printouts so I can size my armor pieces before I cut into my Sintra? Appreciate any assistance from anyone.

There is a template page in the links if you go to the home page. It's pretty helpful. :)
