Ok so right now i'm planning on going to my first con with some of the Mercs in my area, and i didn't think i'll would be able to have my helmet done in time, so i'm getting one for Chirstmas.   
I cut out my trash can armor( it think i already told you guys)  but i did my first run of "forming" them, I think they turned out preety good for my first try, 

Quote
#1. The Helmet
#2. The Chest Armor w/ Stomach and Cod (Glove Armor)
#3. The Back Armor w/ Shoulders
#4. Leg Armor (thigh, Shin, Boot)
#5. Gauntlets
#6. Soft Stuff (Flightsuit, Boot, Vest, Gloves,  Cape)
#7.  Extra's (Weapons, Belt, and other little things)

So i have/getting

Helmet (rubies)
Chest Armor    (No cod or glove YET!!)
Shoulder (no back armor YET)
Flightsuit ---grey---
Boots???( Its has been hinted)
Gauntlets???( Also been hinted!!!!)
Weaps (in progress)
Leg armor----Shin---- (No boot or thigh, YET!!)



I need it finished by January 17!!!!!


Picture will come.

actually, now that you mention it... it's quite Hokan or Fi. If you dropped the black off your helmet and made it grey with red trim, it'd be a perfect set for Fi! Add a grey kama and a walking staff and you're in business! Not to nit pick but, in the books the minimal descriptions we have of Mereel Skirata's beskar'gam is that it's blue. So, your red, grey and black... while great looking, has always confused me.

I actually didn't plan to make it look like Mereel (or Fi with the new design), i wanted to create my own character.  Mereel Skirata is just the user name i stared using on this site (Before I even though of starting my own beskar'gam). Then when i signed up at the Mercs, i kept Mereel Skirata as my user name.
My characters first name will be Kyr'bes (Translates into crown in mano'a, and my real name means 'king' or 'crown'). (. I was going to use Solus Dha'Tor as a middle and last name. but i might go with something else.

so I'm sorry the confusion, and for stealing your bros name  :blush: :D

don't sweat it, no hurt feelings over it. I don't read the fanfics on any of the forums I go to so, I had no idea your character had a different name than you use on the forum boards as, at least on mercs, the peoples forum names are their character names (over 90% anyway). So, when your name was Mereel Skirata and your character's appearance was blacks, greys and reds, I was quite confused. I wondered if you had read the books! LOL.

Well...damn. I've been considering my own trash-can armor for a while now, but didn't go anywhere with it out of concern for how lame it might look.

But that doesn't look lame at all. Nice work.

I would go for it.  and if you really don't like it, you only wasted 10-20 bucks (For me, only $15.  $11 + $4 for the paint. the hot water is free)

I'm really only interested in making some kind of chest piece (probably a single piece chest plate, with a front and a back) and I think some leg pieces (Probably just like 4 for the upper thighs).

I'm trying to put together some KOTOR Era Republic Special Forces armor for my RPG. I just haven't been able to work out a color scheme/armor arrangement in my head.
