I like this one a lot too, as I commented at Scum first where you originally posted it.  The weathering is great.  The painting is great, and so are the parts used.  I didn't notice it before, but the straps in the pic w/ the helmet off, they seem to just "stop" at the top of the shoulders.  Are my eyes playing tricks on me?  Either way, still an outstanding version of Gree.

I've gotten some in trades and some i just purchased. Most of them are AT-TE gunner heads on SA bodies. Actually while this one is progress, i've got a few more headsculpts being used as i'm putting togther a 212th legion. All of them will be SA removable helmet with evo weapons like the 501st legion. There will be a fair amount of cody's grunts as well as a few parjai airborne troopers and of course Cody himself  8)

Nice work there Miseria!
I cant wait to see your 212th Battalion.
I am currently working on a 501st Legion that will have them all featuring removable helmets.
Infact I think I'll go make some head casts soon enough.
I've got some cool ideas, like a clone pistol with a scope.
How did you get your gree's straps like that?
Mine are so far made out of old LoTR straps from belts and shields.
Anyways, nice work and I cant wait to see the finished BARC Trooper.

Thanks CC, I'll definitely get some pics up after i finish the 212th. Look forward to seeing your 501st legion maybe we can get them togther and storm a temple  :P

As for gree's straps, did you mean the chest or leg? Chest was made using the sling off the POTF2 sandtrooper rifle and the Leg  strap is off the back of an AT-TE gunner pauldron.

Current articulaion:
Swivel Head
Swivel Shoulders
Swivel Wrists
Swivel Mid-arm
Swivel hips

I've thought about trying this myself, but have held off in favor of a simple repaint, and I might still go that route and use the upcoming VOTC Scout as a base.

Still though, this is great.  His arms may look a tad long, but other than that I think it's looking awesome.  Great mix of parts, and good luck with this one.  I can't wait to see the final result.

Thanks glassman! 8) and yes...that is a parjai trooper in the background. I dont have any pics of him yet as he is a WIP still (need to do the bandoleers), but those removable helmet casts i got from you are working out great!!!! :)

i'll be sure to get some pics of them as soon as they are complete, along with the rest of the legion  :)

Miseria, what are your plans on the thighs?  Are they supposed to be armored, or more of a black jumpsuit?  Either way, I think it will looks cool.  Just curious.

Well In all the pictures i've seen they're supposed to be pants material, not armor, so i tried to cut the showy mold lines that made it look like armor, i think if i round them out a bit more before i paint them they will be able to pass for pants  :P I also have a few details left to do like the Pouches (which i cut off the original barc trooper and will probably just glue in place :P) and the 2 areas on the inner thigh where the material is a different color.

here is a pic for reference of what i mean...

That's a good reference pic, thanks for showing it.  I think however you do it, it will look good.  I'm just surprised Hasbro didn't make this figure... imagine the armies!
