These are some outstanding Hoth troopers.  This is something I've wanted to do ever since I picked up an extra couple of Bren Derlins.  I'd love to see some close-ups of the faces.  You did a GREAT job on the heads.  I'm also guessing that you added some "snow weathering" too.  You should take a photo of the these guys with Bren and Reikan.

Those do look good, I always like your updates Dressel.  Great job getting it to look like they have a bit of snow/ice on their uniforms.

This is a simple repaint of the Mace's Battalion 212th Parjai Trooper from the EU purple to the EIII orange scheme.  Both versions included for comparison purposes:





Thanks for looking.

That's pretty smooth painting DR, nice work...  I don't see much of any paint lines to hamper it at all.  You covered the purple well in all areas and it seems like you even added a little detail to the shoulder ammo thingy (little metallic dabs there thatI don't see on the original).

Nice work man...  What prompted you to repaint the figure instead of waiting for Hasbro's?  Or was it simply not liking purple versions of this figure? :)

Thanks Jesse!

What prompted me....Check out my posts in the 30 AC Airborne Trooper thread and also the Saga Mace BP thread.  I think there is a helmet difference.  Not too big, but noticeable to me.

I think...

Plus, I was just flat out bored and love the figure.  I really like the Parjais.  I'm still gonna buy tons more in January with the single carded release.

Nice trooper you've got there! Where's the diorama to go with it?

Great paint aps.  I love the rebel officers of Hoth.  Those looks awesome.  The beard is a great touch. 

Also the airborne clones look fantastic.  I really love the orange flavored one.  Sharp! 

I always look forward to seeing your work. 
NOTE TO HASBRO,
SA JANGO would sell quite well!
