I've been working on a little armor stand Harry Potter vs Voldemort scene, just for fun, and I was trying to make the part where the two spells meet.

Harry Potter fighting Voldemort

I figured out a way to do it, but I can't seem to get a red or green stained glass on the armor stand's head.

I've tried a few things.

/entitydata @e[type=armor_stand,r=1] {Equipment:[{},{},{},{},{id:stained_glass,Damage:14}]}

/entitydata @e[type=armor_stand,r=1] {Equipment:[{},{},{},{},{id:stained_glass 1 14}]}

/summon armor_stand ~ ~ ~ {Invisible:1,Equipment:[{},{},{},{},{id:stained_glass,Damage:14}]}

All of them with the same outcome: it said it worked, but it didn't do anything. I checked and there was no invisible armor stand summoned, and there definitely wasn't any red stained glass. Can anyone figure out why this wasn't working?


The Equipment list was updated in 1.9 to ArmorItems.

Your list also contains 4 empty brackets and then the item bracket. This is too many. The head slot is the 4th bracket set. This is probably because you were working with a pre 1.9 command to start with.

You are also missing Count to specify quantity.

I also specified data types by following the number value by the proper letter.

These commands have been tested and work properly in 1.12.2:

/entitydata @e[type=armor_stand,r=1] {Invisible:1b,ArmorItems:[{},{},{},{id:"minecraft:stained_glass",Damage:14b,Count:1b}]}

/summon armor_stand ~ ~ ~ {Invisible:1b,ArmorItems:[{},{},{},{id:"minecraft:stained_glass",Damage:14b,Count:1b}]}

    Oh ok. People really need to put more updated tutorials on the internet. – hakalo Feb 17 '18 at 20:16

    Infact, I think I'm gonna do that. I'll make a "Updated Tutorial on Armor Stands" video. – hakalo Feb 17 '18 at 20:19
  • There are tutorials on the subject. Always verify date or version of the page. I always trust the official wiki and DigMinecraft. Those links both go to armor stand pages. Official wiki is on the entity data values for the armor stand. DigMinecraft is a tutorial on summoning an armor stand with armor. It is because of these kinds of problems that I specified the current version above the commands in my answer. This makes it easier on future readers. – IronAnvil Feb 17 '18 at 21:03
