    Just some old Armor from last year i could show off abit more.












    "Clayton Carmando"



    The idea came when we noted that some befriended Groups started Their projects for SWTOR based costume.
    Like a Full Havoc-Squad and Sith Acolytes from the Trailers. So - why not make something mandalorian either?

    We made a little Squad of mandalorian Armor based on SWTOR
    Especialy these guys





    The Reason why we choosed this Armor particulary had the reason to get recognized for empire and republic gamers aswell. You cant play the game 10 minutes without stepping over one of those Blue T-visored Dudes. No matter if he is just a NPC, a Questgiver or an enemy Mob. A random bounty hunter squad would be too much.
    Also - Bioware/EA still does not make this Armor wearable for players... so thats why!

    As Material there were no other choice then aluminum so we had to dismantle the whole thing.
    to make it possible to assemble the set without the use of a weldingtorch


    (sketches by Tomoe Harada)


    For the Source and References we took the lowpoly ingame modell aswell as the Shae Vizla statue, Actionfigure and Renders from the Trailer cause her armor has the same 3D modell ingame - so infact we made just a lesser detailed shae vizla to avoid the comic-style proportions of the game engine

    next step Papermodel





    We hade several Vode on this project with diffrent sizes (ranging form 165-190cm) instead of one size that fits all - we just scaled several sizes to fit everyone (thats the luxus whe using cutted plates instead of resin form casting). The Idea was that everyone just get the lasercutted Metalplates and form them on his/her own.



    Next Step: lasercutting! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RP3KahYIIgo

    Next Step
    Assembling the Parts one-by-one

    Attachment 70511 Attachment 70512
    Shoulders



    Knees


    Cod and Butt Armor


    Tighs


    Backplate


    Chestpiece


    Heels


    Shins


    The full assambled Chest Armor


    Feetplates


    Handplates



    Ok Testfitting Time





    Time to Paint






    Done











    For the Jetpack:
    the same like the Armor.
    analise the model, make a papermodel and metalize it ^^



    The Belt was made out of 3mm thick real Leather that got tinted black and blue
    The buckle is out of aluminum paltes of course - tucked together with some reused military issue beltclips

    For the Helmet:
    Making it out of Metal was then too big because of the round shapes. No one did the helmet so far so o chooesd to make it myself.
    I never casted a helmet and i'm sort of heavy handed so that was the first time i tried to put in some details.

    After making 3 molds ( the first 2 sucked and made wobbly casts) i think i learned enough ^^ The Bad think is. I used my head as areference for the Model so it is very very small inside. Mostly because the Form of the Modell is intended to be tighter at the Helmet openingfor this bole shape.

    But hey, atleast i can now cast helmets on my own.

    This helmet project was last year and a bit hurried because of the Celebration Europe 2 back then.
    It major lacks that it is tiny and small for a regular sized male head. Most women or people with a more slim head can use it...

    But i gonna do a MARK 2 this Summer right now

    Wow, very nice work. Thanks for sharing!

    How heavy is all the armor and does it get hot to wear?

    The Armor is really light. Just 13kg. (while Shoes and Helmet already make out 2,5kg ^^)

    Plates are like 8kg maybe.
    My Mainarmor weights 35kg for example - the diffrence is: i used 3mm thick plates for my main-armor while this swtor build uses 1mm thick plates

    The Undersuit is just black pants and a blue Underarmorshirt with a Black Tanktop above.
    Heat by transpiration is not a big problem But it is aluminum^^ If i stay to long in the sun at the Summer the Plates gonna heat up^^ Aslong as theire is something like a springwell or bottlet water i can cool my armor down. Aluminum dosen't rust and i usally build my armors solid and waterproof ^^
    The good thing, if i stay in a cold room and went out into something hotter; the plates keep the temperature for a couple of minutes and cool you down. It*s nice for those troops where you have a air-conditioned room inside but 30C and above outside. So the temperature-shock isnt that strong.
