Ah okay!

Cheers, Sep. Wasnít too sure if it carried any real consequences being light/med or heavy.

Would Jaw armour, like Kara Kelbornís, qualify as neck armour or is it more dog collar/neck shield like on a bomb disposal suit kind of thing thatís wanted?

Neck armor is what keeps you from ending up like Jango Fett
Jaw armor, would still leave you headless.  Don't be like Jango ;)

On that same note, would a gorget work in place of neck plates?

That would depend what you mean by a gorget - dependent upon which period and location you are pulling the term from, a gorget is just the top piece of the torso armour that we refer to as the collar and then another of similar size to the rear and will not cover any of the neck. Or you could be looking at some of the designs that have any manner of neck protections built in - some may be enough to classify by mandalorians standards, some may not. I advise pictures of the sort of design you have found, without them there can be no answer when the term used has such a wide range of designs.

Work for what? A custom build or for brigades. If brigades, as Kris said, get some references for your specific concept and ask in brigades. If for general custom, build anf enjoy!

WHat I'm thinking is something along the lines of the high collar piece, like Thaxos has.

For a custom build, that should work fine.  For Brigades?  You'd need to ask the Brigades team.

Okay quick question regarding kamas, now I know this has been asked before, however Kyria and I have been debating about this for the past few hours and I just want to set the record straight once and for all.

So, here goes. Are kamas (armored or un-armored) considered part of the medium class armor (or any class armor for that matter) or are they simply considered soft stuff/extra equipment or accessories and not taken into consideration when it comes to armor class at all?

Thank you in advance, sorry for having to repeat this question but better safe than sorry.

They are extras in medium armour doesn't require kama as its the same as Jango has in the films  ;)

Heavy armour can have them in armoured fashion for butt armour

So at what point does it become a Medium kit missing thigh armor rather than a Light kit with shin armor, for example?

If you have all the pieces for medium its medium until it gets all the pieces to reach heavy, till that time its light with additional parts.
It progresses up, not down  ;)

Hey I'm curious about warp around armor. I want to do a heavy armor build and instead of individual plates I'd like to use wraparound. Would building armor like that stop me from becoming an official member?
