Janir's Armor Planning thread
« on: Jan 14, 2014, 09:58 PM »
Ok here's the start of my armor planning. Mostly a outline format here but  that's the way I organize and think.
I  may also use the first post for overall details and edit. I'll will create  other posts for  various other lines of thinking from others input. Some either sketches or modded pics to follow.

----------------------------------------
Name: Yim'al Skirata

Overall Armor concept: -Commando Spec Ops Sniper (modern)
(I'm an Project Appleseed rifleman and instructor, gotta be a sniper ;) )
-Flat black with flat crimson red offset colors.
-Heavy armor. Full chest/back full arms, legs etc.
-Probably full set of Xrati Armour WerKs metal armor, bubba sized ;)


The HSP Commando Mandalorian Fett Clone Wars Helmet
-Light on one side. Take apart small 160+ lumen flashlight and build in.
-Range finder - Target tracker assembly on other side.
    -laser and some sort of optic 
    -RF camera (car backup cam) to wrist display? Or to Rifle. (wireless)
    -Possible to mount small 5x30 hand held scope in assembly for magnification?
-No std antenna. (HSP commando)
    -either small anntena on right or separate comms outright.
    -Maybe a jack from coms unit to helm.
-LEDs in the visor for small glow. emulate interor display in helm.
     -small low pwr. switchable on/off.
-Insert voice amp into helm.
-Small strap/hook in back neck area to hang helm on belt or over a shoulder strap.


Rifle
Stinger - the nearly invisible blaster.  (everybody's doing Shatter guns...)
Show dual mode of rifle maybe with a selector switch and dual tibanna gas magazines?
Build from tippman A-5 paintball gun.
-Add some sort of can to the end for silencer/muzzle brake effect.
-Add lights to silencer to make 'active' silencer.
-Add ART scope (for now) or cheap large bell scope to top.
-Pull A5 gas systems and ball feeder. convert ball feeder side to side ammo mag loading.
     -Mag loads from the RIGHT side.
     -Use gas tube to route to mag area.
     -Permanent mag for now? (may need some work to do removable mag)
-Some sort of bipod. Use front handle picatinney bipod.

Armor
-Med to Heavy Armor
-Want metal based armor
-Most likely Xrati Armour WerKs
-Kama and tac belt
-Need more pouches. Not full string aka Boba style.
-Make/acquire small blaster for drop leg holster?1911 ish sized.
-gaunts with controls on inside of wrist on left., maybe right as well.
    -

Extras
-kukuri style knife or dual knifes?
-small belt comms unit to plug into helm

EDIT 2/3/14: Fixed photobucket with a new photobucket account. GRRR!!

Alright, worked out a few image issues and got several ideas worked out and got some of my notes and ideas consolidated.
First off my buy'ce:
Looking at a HSP commando helm. Using that at a base I mocked up  a jpg of the scheme. ( my computer art-fu leaves a lot to be desired.) Weathering and damage to be assumed, just not drawn in.

I want some sort of decoration on the top but I don't know what yet.

Armor itself. Going with a Kram Xrati setup. Going to have my wife make up a stiff leather/pleather vest so its snug to help keep the pieces form moving about and to give more of the solid effect. May need some sort of under-harness for weight distribution.
Armor will be black as outlined in first post with red accents. Getting extra belly piece ( bubba sized) and all the extra pieces and some extra forearms and upper arms to make a clam-shell vs just armor on one side. Made up speadshet with parts list. :)


Weapon:
Started taking apart my old A-5 paintball gun and did some simple layouts.

As you can see it has a forend and rail assembly for it already and a dogleg stock. Dogleg stock allows me to get my full helmeted head behind the stock and still eye down the scope (not pictured).
One of the things I plan on doing is running a rod down the barrels to allow me to use 2 paintball barrels end to end to give me a super sized barrel.


The paintball gun is old and has bare metal showing. It's pretty well weathered. ;) I still need to clean up the gun then build up the fake magazine/gas assembly on the side of the gun. I also removed the bottom of the handgrip air tank attachment and plan on re-routing the braided steel air line you can see away from the handgrip onto the new magazine system(not made yet) while keeping the part that sticks into the main part of the gun receiver where it is.. Thinking about using 2 3.6 v Black and Decker cylinder batteries as blaster gas mags. Spare gas mags can then be on the dogleg stock.

More to come later!

Update: HSP commando helmet is on its way and Kram Xrati has been hired to make some metal armor! :)
 I also have some repulsor pack/jetpack ideas going up and a weapons help thread.

I love the helmet concept.  That thing looks sweet!  But if you are going for the Sniper under the Spec Ops brigade, I don't think you can have heavy armour.  Just a thought.

The CRL for it says heavy is ok.

"Armor of any style can be used. However, said armor must be free of projections, and loose fabrics that are likely to get caught on other objects."

My bad, I was thinking the assassin.  What are you doing for the "spotter?"

Plan on building up one ear of the helmet with some extra 'optics' vs separate spotter, at least until I can get teh wife to get a set of armor and become my spotter. :D (she's already talked about armor for her)
