Hey, I haven't posted in a while since I haven't gotten any new figures lately (been broke lol) but I realized I had the stuff to make Medrit here just lying around so here he is =)
After seeing a few Cobra Troopers turned into Jangos here on the realm, I decided they make a good mando base, but I wanted something different. I decided I wanted a lightly armored Mando, more sniper than grunt, with more agility and speed, so I limited his armor to right shoulder pad and forearm brace.
I took the helemt, shoulder pad and jet pack from and old episode 2 Jango I had in the bin. I took the shoulder cape from an animate debut Boba that I prefered without a cape and the scarf it's attached to used to be the wrist thingy from a secret apprentice Jedi figure, I hated them so I tooke em off. The hold-out blaster on his left thigh was part of the trooper's web gear that I cut off, leaving only the belt, so I clipped the trooper knife holder and glued on the blaster instead. The right forearm guard is from an old Venom vs Valor fig I had in the bin (thye make for good fodder parts) I used an exacto knife to cut it and the shoulder pad from Jango and trimmed em to fit (god I need a dremel)
I painted the helmet silver and black and dry brushed the heck out of it with black, and I really like the way it turned out, like a battle dammaged/weathered/cammo effect. I then covered the cobra symbol on his chest with blue and hand painted the Mythosaur skull on his chest/torso, its purposely rough, as I've seen it that way on other mandos in comics and such.
Well, I hope you like my newest Mando'ad custom, thanks for looking and enjoy! =)
***************** I decided that he wasn't Mando enough without at least the torso armor, so I sculpted some. This is my first attempt at sculpting, so please let me know what you think and what I could have done better. Thanks for looking and enjoy =) *****************
