Mandalorian Archer by bardic-fire Mandalorian Archer by bardic-fire
An edited and slightly stylized picture of my Mandalorian Mercs "kit" - I'm submitting for approval weekend, but this happened while my brother and I were out in the back yard taking the required photos for said approval. I've gotten some great feedback on the kit so far, so here's to hoping nothing gets "kicked back" - it's been a lot of fun working on this project, but I'm sooooo ready to move on.

Anyway...got the idea for the kit from the Nightsisters episodes on The Clone Wars TV series. This is my take on the Nightsisters' Energy Bow - I'm a recreational archer (when I'm not running around in Star Wars costumes, apparently), so building a character concept around a bow was a lot more natural to me than the usual gun/rifle/etc.

There are instances in EU, by the way, where Mandalorians (notably Boba Fett) have used bows to hunt specific bounties. I support this idea mostly from the short story "The Last One Standing" from the short-story compilation, "Tales of the Bounty Hunters." One of my clan buddies has promised me a bowcaster at some point, as well...so I'll probably be switching back and forth between the two, depending on the reception I get from incorporating an Energy Bow into a Mandalorian kit. The recreational, real-world bow snob in me prefers the traditional long bow or recurve to the crossbow. LOL

If you're a Merc happening upon this...feel free to drop me a line on the boards. Just look for "Rabbit". ;-)

LOVElovelove your mando armor set mate, it's simply stunning! And I'm a huge fan of the bow, aside from the sword, it's my utmost fav weapon of all time (huge Robin Hood fan since I was a wee kid). This is so awesome!!! We need some action shots :D
