No one's responded to the last two I've put up, but I don't care. I'm finally 100% satisfied with my ARC-170 now. No maroon, and I drybrushed it in militay gray and black. I really like it now. It looks like it's been through hell more than once. Here we go:

Hope you like them. Please leave feedback/replies, they are greatly appreciated. Thanks for looking.

Thanks, hemble. I'm most pleased with the ARC, I'm glad everyone likes it. I really like the way a figure can look so much beather with just a bit of weathering. Thanks for your comments.

That's a great weathering job.  It looks like it's been to hell and back, and ready for some more!

All of your troopers have a unique look to them.  They really look like an outfit of troops that operate on their own, with a lot of freedom in their missions.

I'll check out your latest photonovel soon.

I've love that ARC fighter. The army green color is very fitting. The holes in the wings with wires is a briliant touch. It makes the ship look more like a movie model. You've taken a rather boring sculpt and turned it into something to be very proud of.

 I had this headset from a BBI figure I wanted to use and so I took the head of the Ep2 evo clone and repainted him. Here are the pics:
 
 
Here's the neck post from the point man on the Evo clone:
 
 

I think the radio man looks better. I'm still looking for equipment to put on him, but the headset will have to do for now. LMK what you think, all responses are appreciated. Thanks for looking.

Man, I LOVE the paint job!  I love how you have a great consistency in the look of your ships and troopers. 

Very well done!

Sorry I haven't commented in the photonovel thread yet, but I've been loving your stories and will try to post some detailed comments soon!

Okay, I'm finally done with the 305th Radio Man. I tried to get a WWII look to him, tell me if you think he does:

Very nice work!

I think he may look just a teensy bit overloaded with gear, but that's hardly the worst thing in the world.

Another fine addigino to the Fighting 305th!!

 I was trying to get him to look a bit overloaded- I wanted him to look like a real radio man. Thanks for your comments.

I really like the radio operator very original and I especially like all the gear on him being ex-militray I can really relate to it great work.

I think the gear on him look great.  It adds a lot and makes him stand out from the crowd.  So much of the OT is influenced by WW2, so seeing some prequel figures influenced by it is definitely nice to see.
