Re: CM's SA marines+bacara+special custom!

A nice set of clones there. I like the weathering and paint apps on the galatic marines. The only thing I don't like about them is the fabric used. The fabric in that scale looks too course and holie. A finer fabric would have seemed more in scale to me. I think it needs to be trimmed a little. Over all very well done figures.

As for the 501st SA/w removable helmets, I think the Evo clone came out the best. The letter A on his chest seems to be the most accurate. I like how the A splits at the end. It's funny how when making the same figure three times we get completely different looking figures.

Damn I really like your Marines.  Would you be kind enough to post a detailed recipe?

The Bacara is simply awesome - what fantastic weathering!

These are basically just clone commander #33 repaints I did. Nothing from these troops come from the actual Hasbro Bly figure. I was particularly proud of the weathering and pauldron color so i thought i'd post them as I will also be posting other Order 66 edition figures (a few will be rehases of customs i've already done along with a jedi from the ROTS line) until i've completed every scene of order 66 from the ROTS film. The Jedi won't really be in the spotlight as they'll be just ROTS hasbro figures unless i do some retooling (after that i'll be packaging them in a ROTS multipack scheme each with special backgrounds). now without further delay...









As always comments and such are always welcome!  :cool:

Well somebody had to do it! ;D

Nice job on them my man I like the work that you did on them. I think out of all the clones Bly and his troops are my favorite. I hope I can score 1 more Bly so I can match him up to my troops.

They look good but I am personally sick of weathering. I is getting out of control, as if every trooper never has claen fresh armor.

BTW, where is the cloak on Anakin from on page #1 ?

I like seeing some clean clones too, mainly the ones stationed on Coruscant.  For ones on the front lines a lot though, I think some weathernig is nice.  But at times it can be overdone.

ya i tried to use a more grey weathering than black on this to just give a general "dirty" look and not so much a "battle damaged" look. You have to remember clones go from planet to planet frequently, so rest and time to clean off armor may not always be available or necessary   :) As for the robe on the anakin from page 1 it came from a SAGA obi wan pilot. I believe you can get the same robe with VOTC obi wan as well.

Thanks for the comments  Clone Hunter and Chewie  ;D

CM's Bith Jedi Knight-Nuyiss Ma'b
« Reply #55 on: January 6, 2006, 02:56 AM »
BIO: Nuyiss Ma'b was a Jedi Knight during the clone wars. He led a clone unit to victory on Saluecami clearing away remaining droid units. During a quiet moment after a firefight he  indecisively( ;)) halted his unit at an assumed deserted enemy base, while two droid units they were in pursuit of split up. The halt in his units progress gave time for enemy scouts to report the jedi's location and fire a heavy barrage on the outpost. Many lives were lost, but Nuyiss Ma'b survived the attack and was later transferred to the temple where he was assumed killed by Darth vader during the 501st legion's raid.
