Re: Mandorlian Ranks

The Mandalorians do not have much of a ranking system.

Re: Mandorlian Ranks

Re: Mandorlian Ranks

Death Watch and Jaster's Mandalorians had a small ranking system.

Re: Mandorlian Ranks

Here are some I found. I couldn't find a ranking system, but I found some with different, simple, paint schemes. If you want more, go to google and do the search with Images. Tip, don't Type in Mandalorian Armour, you'll get a lot of pics of the book's front cover.

Re: Mandorlian Ranks

you might find the history section of Mandalorians on wikipedia to be helpful.
in a way the colors/status seem to mimic the colors for ranks of the original (clone) stormtroopers.
it also lists the following:

blue - common
green - elites, sergeants, and a few other ranks
red - captains (and other ranks)
yellow - "some other ranks"

and

"The one who achieved the rank of Mandalore would wear a unique suit of armor."

Re: Mandorlian Ranks

In the "Mandalorians People and Culture" article on the Star Wars Insider #86, it states the following about Mandalorian rank:

___________________
     Armor is often handed down between generations, especially the beskar type.  It's intricately customized to suit the wearer’s needs and tastes and is worn by both genders.
     Armor color and markings can indicate many things, from clan or family to more ephemeral concepts such as state of mind or a particular mission.  Sand-gold represents a quest for vengeance; black, for justice.  Mando’ade will often repaint their armor with new colors if they’re on a particular task or have changed clans.  With the exception of the Mandalore, markings never correspond to fixed rank—a concept they find hard to accept.
     Sometimes, though colors on armor simply express personal preferences.  Blue and green are especially popular.  While other soldiers opt for camouflage.  Mandalorians seem not to care about being conspicuous: “It’s one thing to see us coming, and another to do something about it” is a common Mando saying.
     Sigils—symbols painted on the helmet or chest-plate—often identify the wearer’s allegiance, lineage, or loved ones.  But they can also be marks of honor, such as the jai’galaar’la sur’haii’se (shriek-hawk eyes).  Jaig, as they’re better known, are bestowed as awards for bravery by some clan leaders.
