Great work mate the troopers look great but the Arc does it for me the weathering is  and the damage is simply fantastic.

Here we go. I have a bunch of new ones, and I'm going to gorget about posing them regularly. Here's a loooong post coming up, be ready. The pics are big (sorry, I don't know how to make them smaller) and I don't have the best camera.

My custom Sith lord, Darth Dosage:





hee,hee ;D



Ki-Adi went to ConeHeadsPlus and got himself some new threads:



A cold weather clone specialist



A custom clone commader, Commander Rayders



Every commander needs grunts!



In reply to to big response, I have altered my Arc.

ARC-170 v.1.1


(notice that the "fingerprints" are gone) ::)

and, to finish it off, a clone "assault vehicle"


Sorry for such a long post. Comments/feedback/criticism appreciated. Thanks!

That might be it for a little while. I need to start looking for some less expensive custom fodder.  :(

Well I said that would be it for a little while, but, I lied. I found some really cheap custom fodder at KBToys, and got to work.

This is a driver for my custom vehicle, the HeavyArtillerySupportVehicle(HASV).





and here is my vehicle mentioned above, the HASV. First, here's some backround.
              The HASV is a fast agile vehicle, but it also packs a poweful punch. A low-altitude mortar launcher takes up the space where a small anti-infranty gun used to be. It gives precious anti-infantry/anti/vehicle support in a battle. Extra cargo space has room for an ammo barrel, water container. and two extra shells for the mortar.







Well, there you go. Small update, but I like them. The driver was hard. I had to sculpt a ball-joint for Mace Windu's head, even though that head looks nothing like Mace. Which I'm glad for or else some people might say "Why does Mace Windu have desert fatigues on" or something like that. Thanks for looking.

Nice stuff, I take it those are HALO jeeps?  Look like they could definitely fit in with Star Wars.

If you are going to have driver in desert wear, maybe the jeep could be painted to match his outfit more?

The other figures are nice too, I like the Sith Lord a lot, and the Ki Adi Mundi outfit is really a nice touch.

There's been a lot of Clones made lately, but yours are unique and I like that.

 :P

Great stuff the desert camo is very well done, I also like the HASV the only thing I would add to it is support legs at the back because when that thing fires it's going to be a great recoil to it.

CHEWIE- Yeah they are Halo "Warthogs". That is true that his outfit should coinside with the HASV but I think it might be easier just to repaint his camo fatigues rather than repaint the 'Hog. Thanks for your comments. I got the Ki-Adi idea from you, after I saw yours with that helmet thing. Thanks!

hemble- You know, I never thought of that. Although I can't really think of a way to do it. Do you mean legs that attach-detach from the bumper for firing? I'll think about it but that seems hard. Maybe someone can offer some input?

Thanks for the comments everyone.

What about some sort of fold down out riggers similar to what large Fire Dept. ladder trucks use?  Actually, some cheap fire truck toy might just have them already made.

You took the words right outta my mouth I was also thinking of those cheap army figures and there gear you can find at the stoes in the discount isles.

I responded on GH, but I'll say here - those modified 'hogs turned out great.  It's too bad they're slightly underscaled for Star Wars - maybe you could remove or modify the chair so that the figures fit into the vehicle.  I don't have my warthogs handy so I don't know how feasible that is though...
The scariest thing that I've ever seen,
Is the terrible AT-AT walking machine.
It's as big as a house on walking legs,
and whatever it steps on it crushes like eggs.

I've thought about it, but looking at it, the plastic is way too hard. But it think it is possible my just cutting away the brace between driver and gunner on the driver's sid so he could go into the seat better. I have a couple new customs but I'm going camping this weekend so they're not going to be up probably until Monday evening.

Thanks

Okay. I got back from crawling around on my belly 47 stories below ground in the unexplored section of Laurel Caverns today. Much fun. I took pictures of a new custom- it's a clone repaint/part addition but I haven't made a backstory for him yet. Any suggestions? I hope you like him.

Man, he looks lke he's been to hell and back, but it's a great looking repaint.  I would say that unless he's a commander, there should be at least one more of them you might want to make to make him part of a squad/army builder.
