Another Maul Mando possibly in the works
« on: Jan 02, 2014, 12:12 PM »
Hey, how's it going?
Perhaps a few of you may remember me from the chat days and then for those of you on my FB friends list, you already know what I've been kicking around. After several years of bad luck, I quite possibly finally may be able to start some armor now. I've come up with my own custom idea for a Maul Mando, so this is one not seen in the CW animated series. Bare in mind, I've also been considering a Jango, so it's possible I could switch to him entirely, or attempt both ideas at the same time. I'll experiment with my mando idea first and see how it goes. With that said, there's a couple things I've been recommended I should possibly ask. To give you an idea of my character's backstory, I'm thinking of setting him in the NJO Vong Wars era. Yes, a Maul mando in the Vong wars. I think this era gives me the most freedom of what I want to do with him. He'll most likely be a nephew of one of the original death watch who sided with Maul, so that's why his armor will still be maul designed several decades later. With that said, I'm still only in the thinking stages of it all, so I ask.... Will there be any sort of problem with some CW era and Empire/Vong Era parts?
Would be it weird to add a little orange to it? a Maul Mando?
I've been told it'd probably be better to go with fiberglass or Sintra, and a trash can is just ok at best. I have no experience with fiberglass, and the one place in town that sells sintra charges 40 or so. (I'm out of a job currently, and I get only very little kind of money if I'm lucky) So if all else fails, would a trash can really be that bad? Look at this guy's http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/f25/trash-can-armor-pics-6290/

I personally think his job is excellent.

That's all for now.

Clone wars and NJO are all under Modern Era so there is no problem there vod ;)

as for what to use  :rolleyes: Trash can armour can look awesome Just be careful what type of plastic the trash can is made from. if its made from Thermoset plastic you will have a hell of a job reshaping it ;)   

as for sintra have you looked at ordering some online ?

No, I figure I'll just go to that place in town if I don't get the trashcan.

One thing you may need to be careful about with this concept is it becoming a crossover. You'll definitely want to consult the App team about your concept, as if I remember someone got dinged for a kit that had looked too much like a Savage Opress cross over kit a while back. I'm not saying you won't be able to get it approved, just it'll pay to check with the app team as you go :)

what exactly is a crossover? there will be a couple bits and pieces of Maul's design in my mando, yet there will be distinguishable differences

Cross over would be if your maul-dalorian winds up looking too much like savage oppress, who had a yellowy orange appearance.
I think the idea should be okay, depending on how you did it.
If the armor is a hand me down, a repaint wouldn't be unheard of, and then have vong pieces added. It could be seriously wicked :)

Here's what I had in mind. not a full complete picture, and I may make some tweaks here and there. I'm going to delete this soon, because this isn't technically my picture. I just colored it

That looks good. I dont see it being an issue with crossover. I think it would be cool to paint it just like the mauldalorian, then add your orange and color changes after, and let some of the original show through. rather than just paint it in the new scheme. would help to sell the used hand me down look.
also might want to look here,
http://mandalorianmercs.org/forum/index.php?topic=7579.0
for posting pics.  short version is post the IMG code in your mercs post, rather than a url code.
lotsa folks dont like following non-mercs links. rookie mistake, no biggie :)

Ive tried to get the direct link and then use the image code, yet photobucket won't let me copy and paste. it won't let me highlight the link so I can put it in the images here. I've tried messing with the settings and it doesn't help

Probably, that happens to me. Just keep trying to get it. It will happen eventually. If not, use the settings to bring the links up under the picture in the library view (thumbnail size). It makes it easy to copy and paste that.

Hope that makes sense.

So are you really looking to make a custom death watch with super commando influence, to be a successor of a DW that has had a generation of 2 to evolve the paint work?

And I think you can't post as your bucket is private and blocks links to preview your post in a thread

Re: Another Maul Mando possibly in the works

for the photobucket on a cellphone, no not using a cell phone. I'll try and mess around with it later and see if I can fix it.

Ashen, I don't know for sure to your question. It won't be all deathwatch parts.

And my bucket is private? Everyone else says They can see it. I don't think I understand. And I can preview posts before I post here.

Can see it if you follow link, but not preview on a forum  thread as the link gets blocked (its a theory)

DW wise, by the picture you linked it looked like DW all the way just Super commando colours + mods thats all

I got it now. heh. And Ashen, I just searched for random mandalorian photos I could colorize to get my idea known. I did a quick color through and didn't erase or add anything. I just wanted the general idea across and make sure my Maul idea would be fine
