KITBASHED: Garindan Mk2 by ukitakumuki KITBASHED: Garindan Mk2 by ukitakumuki
This is what I do when I get bored with my toys :) I kitbash them into something I like. Was in a very cyberpunkish mood when I was thinking of this.

This one was inspired by Monster Hunter in particular. I love skulls, shady characters, and big guns. I imagine Garindan Mk2 to have given up on hunting normal bounty and moved on to bigger game hunting (rancors, maybe). That explains the oversized MP5 that looked like it once belonged to a mech. He retweaked the trigger system to make it possible to fire with his hands. The pistol grip remains because... he's Garindan and he couldn't be arsed to remove it.

The basic idea behind the 'gorget' or the huge belt that acts like a neck protector is to both reduce the character's head size and bring more visual weight to the top. But more importantly to suggest that he has that skull on top both as a decoration, and as headgear which allows him to use it like a periscope (by fitting macrobinoculars into the cavity). I imagine an interesting scenario where he literally digs a foxhole, buries himself in sand and just lets the skull sit on top. :)

The suit looks cool, but remember that Garindan is a SPY, not an army scout or sniper. If he wears this while walking around Mos Eisley- he might as well wear a neon sign and a loudspeaker that constantly says, "GARINDAN IS HERE! RUN AND HIDE, 'CAUSE I'M COMING FOR YOU!"

The intent wasn't to make a true Garindan version 2. The intent was to make it known the kitbash figure was based off of a Garindan incase people thought I was trying to get away with just stealing the idea somehow. So once I get past the initial "no thats not meant to be a garindan alternate, but rather just a standalone character, with garindan as a base." An exercise in kit bash, you could say. :)

Lol, periscopic skull and sitting in a foxhole with it. :XD:
That image was... let's say ridiculous, and my signature would apply very well. :)

And yes, that gun IS over-sized. He can't even hold the grip. :D
Looks like you can get pretty crazy while kitbashing. :)

While I appreciate the sentiment I think you should give the kitbashing thing a go. I don't think its phenomenally difficult and is pretty easy to make it look good. AFter all, its not technically 'your' design :p Its really a lot more fun and less challenging than people think. The hardest part is to make sense of and accept other people's design choices while letting them inform the look of the thing you're trying to make. If that makes aaany sense at all. Haha :) Thanks again!
