Ill be honest, its maddening plain.
I agree, all white does look good. But hes got gray and beige as his prime colors from what im seeing.
My first kit was all white, everything, white. Was it plain? yes, but alot of people liked it including myself. You don't have to go all out mixing and matching colors to make a good looking set of armor.JR, I like the 3rd design best, but go with what you like the best as you will be the one wearing it.
Ill be honest, its maddening plain. Have you looked at other finished kits? The costume gallery here on the forum or the facebook page is a good place to look. Id say give it another shot. Keep this in mind though. Who is your mando, what does he do, and where does he do it.But if this is what you really want by all means, go for it. Im not slapping you down at all, just trying to make sure you get what you want.
the first one to me just seems like the red on the helmet sticks out from the rest of it. i think it would look awesome with red gauntlets and knees. the last one has a really good flow to it. cant wait to see your kit started
...and maybe an unusual weapon for a Mando will give him backstory?
having a back-story is not required for a good build, just a good idea of what you want to do and keeping at it, back-story can be made later after your build
itsn ot a bad color scheme some mercs have done something similair, I suggest add little accents of a dark color here and there but that can be done with the weathering, get started on building, got a nice plan going so far
No. Not to the gun but the back-story.You kit has to scream what you are. Very few people will know your back-story and you dont want to have to justify way you have and do the things you do. They should be able to tell just by looking at you. You can still write one and place it on the wiki once you become offical though. club members like that kind of stuff.
If you like the colours you have chosen , Go for it ! Dont worry about back stories at the mo , plenty of official members have none .
I would go so far as to say having no backstory is good for producing a better build. That way you can focus on letting the armor blossom on it's own rather than being wrangled in by a preconceived notion and ending up with silly things like lightsabers, throwing stars and katana's.
OK, the throwing stars and Katana being silly is self evident and requires no explaining because I completely understand and I completely agree. They are Earth weapons and if I saw them on a Mando I would not be able to get the 2 G. I. Joe Ninjas out of my mind and that would be bad. But I do not understand why Lightsabers are silly?
You can have a lightsaber hilt hanging from your belt, but you can't use a fully-bladed lightsaber unless you are one of the 3 mandos who were written/shown using a lightsaber. Those are Venku Skirata, Bardan Jusik, and Pre Vizsla. Lightsabers make people think Jedi/Sith, and we don't want people thinking Mandos are either.
