Anyways, finished this guy up today. The 41st Elite Corps specialized in jungle and forest ops. Sergeant Klax leads a squad or men on the forest planet of Dinlo. His armor is painted a dark green with a slight camo pattern and he often wears brown cargo pants with armor kneepads and combat boots.

He packs heavy weaponry- 1 DC-15S, 1 command pistol, 1 scout pistol, and a Merr-Son CLAAL- Compact Light Anti-Armor launcher. He also carries other field supplies such as a emergency med-kit and extra ammo in a large carry-all pouch on his belt.

I realized that it's too cold to continue my PN, and I will repaint the clones in it to match him.

Well, I hope you like him. LMK what you think. Thanks for looking.

It's actually a ATTE Gunner helmet, Incom and MBA. The Obi head doesn't fit too well though.

Kheedo Novar is a Rodian space pirate aspiring in the profession of arms smuggling. Many mercenaries, Mandalorians included, come to him when they are in need of a certain weapon. Unfortuneately, when he lost a shipment of weapons to Qibbu the Hutt, he lost both of his hands as punishment.

Well, I hope you like him. He was kind of rushed to meet the Friday deadline for the Yakfinities, but I still think he came out relatively good (well?). Thanks for looking.

I made sure I got the Battle of the Bulge figures, and I knew which ones were which, just called them Marines by habit I guess... :)

Anyways, went out to WalMart and bought 4 Battle of the Bulge troops and went to work swapping arms, coats, and heads to try to match the people in the picture above (the one with the 3 up front and the fourth running in the background). I also bought some Fomecor and put together the box:

I still have to add some painting details (5 'o clock shadow on prone one, black helmet on the running one *I know that it's steel, but I only got 3 from the troops I bought*, etc.).

Tomorrow I'll head out to my local hobby shop and buy the rest of the supplies I'll need to complete it- spary adhesive, snow ready mat, sprinkle snow, trees, and shrubbery. Then I'll put it together and hope to be done my Tuesday, Monday if I'm lucky.

Thanks for the in-depth post there Ryan. You made some good points, thanks.

Eh, nothing special with this custom...repaint of a Clone Commander and a re-vamping of my mini-dio I made earlier in the summer...

The 45th Mobile Artillery Division is a battle group responsible for setting up artillery positions to assist other groups in combat. Generally kept a fair distance from heated battle, they mainly use mortar-type artillery pieces that rain hell down on the Seperatist forces.

Commander Kallos, a non-clone human in his forties, is a brilliant tactician and has a near-perfect track record when it comes to artillery strikes. His armor is grungy and dirty from the residue and exhaust from the powerful mortar launchers.

I know it's an Obi-Wan head, but i shaved off the side of his beard and added a scar to his face...

Well, I hope you like him. LMK what you think. Thanks for looking.

Great mix of parts with these guys, Smarty. I especially like the Arcona pilot, very appealing combination of Vader parts with the Clone Pilot.

The leader looks good too, what head is that?

The Ithorian "muscle" looks really nice, I at first didn't spot the Endor legs. You disguised them very well.

Great update Adam.

Well, I'll be using the 21st Century American figures. At least I know they're American. :)

I'm planning on creating a Battle of the Bulge diorama for my history project based on either this picture:

or this one:

I'll be using 21st Century Toy's BotB Marines and some hobby supplies.

I'll post pics when I'm done.

Photonovels and Movies / Jedi:Target----Chapter 1
« on: November 20, 2006, 05:55 PM »
On the northern plains of the backwater planet of Nokoi Mindar, a fresh rain had fallen on the grassy region. A light mist had settled near the ground, and it was a dreary, gray day. Four ARC Troopers, led by Jedi Master Thaiman Arcain made their way across the land en route to a Speratist cell believed to be terrorizing the locals.


"Sir, how much farther? It's starting to get dark."

    Master Arcain replied without even looking back. "Our informant said our target is about 3 klicks north of our base camp. I think we might still have another kilometer to go, one a half tops."

    They were walking in a loose line, with Arcain on point and Captain Bowman on rear guard.

    Capt. Bowman called out from the back of the line. "Spar, I can't believe you LOST your Deece. You're lucky Retalid has an extra blaster pistol, or you would've been SOL."

    "I know, captain," Spar replied. The squad's field medic and radio man, Sgt. Spar wasn't especially good with a weapon, but he still could shoot relatively well.

    Sargeant Fallon spoke up. "You better not lose that one either, Spar, or Retalid's gonna have your head on a silver platter," he joked.
    "Yeah, what he said," Retalid added. "And I'm not even joking."

    "Quiet back there," Arcain said firmly. "We're getting closer to our target, and the last thing we need is a Sep picking up your useless conversations. I want no more irrelevant chatter from here on out."
    Suddenly Spar stopped, pressed a button on a pair of headphones, and put them on. The 3 men in front of him paid no notice and continued walking. However, Bowman did and walked up behind him.

    "Who's it from, Sargeant?" Bowman asked, careful to keep his voice low so as not to bother Arcain again.
    "The Supreme Chancellor, sir," Spar replied and lowered his voice to a mere whisper. "It was short and simple." He bent over close to Bowman.

    "The time has come, Commander Bowman. Execute Order 66." The Chancellor's voice had a much more sinister tone to it.
    " Fierfek," Bowan thought. "I really don't want to do this. Of all times, and of all places, why NOW?"
    He called out to Arcain, now considerably ahead of him.

    He turned around. "Yes?" he called out.
    "Some new tactical information was just relayed to us," he lied. "We've confirmed that there are 10 Seperatists located in the cell." "I have some additional target information for my troops."
    "Very well," Arcain replied. "I'll wait here."
    Spar, Retalid, and Fallon walked up to Bowman and formed a loose huddle around him.

    "What is it, Captain?" Fallon asked.

    Bowman sighed. He really didn't know how to say this. They had became attached to Arcain in their last 2 months of service. Their tour of duty was to expire in 3 weeks.
    "Men, I just recieved a urgent message from the Supreme Chancellor. Order 66 has just been activated. I trust that you all know what to do."
    The soldier's faces took on somber looks. They all knew what to do, and were slightly hesitant about it. Infantry clones would have carried it out without a thought, but they weren't infantry. They were ARCs, still bred to listen, but able to think more freely. However, orders were orders, and if their Captain was willing to carry it out, then so be it.

    They quietly drew their weapons and prepared to fire. "On my mark," Bowman whispered.
    Arcain felt a huge rupture in the Force. He sensed that thousands of his brothers and sisters were being cut down by those they had sworn to work alongside. He managed to whip around just as Bowman gave the order to fire.

    The Jedi Master parried their shots with ease.

    Arcain unleashed a Force push in Spar's direction, knocking Spar on his feet, dumbstruck.

    Realizing that if he continued to attempt to make a stand here, he will surely fall, Arcain launched himself into a graceful backflip and ran off into the heavy Nokoi Mindar foliage.

    Watching his new target escape into the high grass, Bowman barked an order to his squad.

    "Cease fire," he said, exhausted. "Shooting blindy into the woods will only waste ammo." "Fallon, go check on Spar."

    "Dumb Jedi," Spar said, lifting himself to his feet. "I never saw that coming."

    "I want you to radio in to Command, Sergeant." "Tell them we attempted to carry out Order 66, but our target escaped. Ask them what they want us to do."
    "Yes sir," Spar said. He activated his radio phones and walked away from the group.

    "Command, this is Sergeant Spar from Kilo Squad. Master Arcain has escaped in our attempt to carry out Order 66. We request advice on what to do." There was a pause as the radio technician asked the officer on the other end of his line.
    "You have orders to NOT return to base camp until you have confirmed to us that Arcain has been killed, Kilo Squad. We are requesting a holo vid of his body."
    "Yes, sir," Spar replied, killing the connection.

    Spar walked back to Bowman and relayed the information to him. "Command told us to not return until we can provide holo proof of his death."

    "Well, sir, what do we do?" Fallon asked.

    Bowman looked him straight in the eye. "What else is there to do?"

    "We listen to them."



Well, this was kind of a suprise. This idea popped into my head a couple days ago and I just had to go with it. I apologize for the lack of blaster effects. I don't have Photoshop and didn't want to risk looking cheesy with MS Paint.

I hope you like it. LMK what you think. Thanks for looking.

Uh...yeah. I got 'em too. Talk about a waker-upper- I log on every morning before I get ready for the day, so I was still half-asleep. Thank the lord my mom wasn't in the room.

That would have been an awkward situation. :-X

Could've picked up the entire wave except for Endor Luke at TRU tonight, but I really have no interest at all for this wave.

Picked up another BotB Marine at a WalMart tonight.

And since this thread is also sort of a BBi thread, I bought a Navy Seal Sniper tonight as well. As soon as it came out of the package, the bicep joints were glued shut and fell out when I tried to twist them loose. I sent BBi a replacement request, the figure should be here in 2-3 weeks ( ::))...

EDIT- I meant to say 4-6...

Pictures of what?

Thanks Incom.

Threw this clone together after I picked up another H&V clone and the Mace BP. I figured he'd be a partner of some sorts to Retalid, I also repainted him as well to match.

One little feature I'm pretty proud of is his removable comm/supply pack:

Here he is with Retalid:

I'm hoping to possibly put together a short photostory about them taking down a Jedi during Order 66...any thoughts?

Well, I hope you like him. LMK what you think. Thanks for looking.

I figured I might as well bump this back up to the top. It's in less than a month.

Great show, this time around I'll hope to snag one or two VOTC Fetts (probably only one, considering the best price I found last year was for 15 ::))...maybe a couple clones, and a few loose figs I want.
