Dead on Time by Krad-Eelav Dead on Time by Krad-Eelav
"You have to know the limits of your physical and mental endurance, so you can recognize them and pass beyond them. This is why I will push you beyond any suffering you can imagine. You will not give up and die like lesser men; you will not crack up like lesser men; you will not lose heart in the direst circumstances like lesser men. And you will be the last men standing when the weaklings have opted to do the easy thing and die."
- Sergeant Walon Vau (Republic Commando)

I hate tuesdays.

Thank goodness for mandos to paint the ever-lovin' shab out of. ;D

I've just got one question: Vau hated his father, so why does he have red on his helmet?
It really is gorgeous work though!

Good eye there! ;D

I found a costuming thread where a gent has apparently been in personal contact with Karen Traviss about doing an accurate Vau. ( thedentedhelmet.com/f34/walon-vau-22579 ). Basically, I've been trying to replicate that look, as well as the blue belt he's got there as well (though admittedly, it turned out more red than bronze here. whoops. )

As for the -reason- why it's that bronze color, Karen mentioned somewhere on a forum that there's different veins/kinds of beskar armor, and that the bronze could simply be a different kind than the grey that we know.

I'm also assuming that since it's not that bright -crimson- color that stands for respect for the father, it could have an entirely different meaning attached to it, or he just found it satisfactory for aesthetic reasons. (Much like how lavender is completly different than the purple that's used for royalty. )

So, there you go. Thanks again for asking. ;D

Like this I do, fave this I shall. I also hate Tuesday. But I hate most days except for awesome days which are many yet few. This Wednesday shall be epic because the men in brown will be on my doorstep with one of life's many circular objects that bring joy to the masses. (If it were clue it would be. The UPS on insanepaynes porch with a copy of borderlands 2 for the console of his choice.)

: P Getting packages are always highlights of the week, I agree. And ooh, borderlands! :o I've heard good things about that game, but haven't played it. How is it?

Dood, the original was awesome but 2 takes the cake. There is a lot of shooting and looting so far. I liked 3/4 of the characters you can pick from. I played 6 hours wednesday, twenty hours on thursday and then I just got done playing it from 2pm to 2am so another 12 I guess. It just sucks you in with all the quests and loots. The games is like borderlandsX2 because of all the improvements they made. But ahh my eyes are sooooo bloodshot I need to take a sleep and get off the internet already.
