Thats hot! Yes, this is Commander Cow (can you guess where he got his name from?).

He and a legion of only 3 other clones, and a Jedi Knight are stationed on a outter rim single city planet called Obsidion I. The planet is made up of pure black crystal, and a fine white powder with effects similar to bacta. The Republic has an exclusive deal to keep the only existing city of miners(and their small families) safe from Seperatist interference, and general scum.

Thats his short backstory, not let me explain what I did.

First, I painted all the parts I wanted painted (the helmet ridge, sholder pad, chest plate, knee stripes) all black. 3 or 4 coats, if I remeber correctly. Then I sealed them with Super Glue.

Next I took several greeblies and blaster parts and I chopped them up. I made 2 knobs for the Obi-Wan backpack radio area (The side with the antena) and added the little controll pannel from Lukes bacta hand tank. Next I glued a Jango missle I had laying around to the two tanks that are attached on the right side of the backpack. Once everything was glued good and fancy, I painted the bedroll on the bottom black, and then I pained the middle pouch to look like leather from an animal. It turned out pretty good if I do say so myself. Whatever parts were left over I chopped up and glued to spots on the harness, like the side strap, where I added two emergency rations containers.

Once everything was honky dory, I took some black and I drybrushed a wash into the harness and onto the rocket and mechanical parts (except the radio) to make it look like it had seen some time on the battle feild around the galaxy. It turned out very well. Now all the pockets look like old leather, the buckles look tarnished a bit and overall it just looks swell.

He's holding a custom ARC trooper blaster, but that will change once I come up with a new recipie for a gun for him.

Comments and critiques are welcome, and thanks to CHEWIE for hosting this for me, while I work out some server problems. :)

You really went all out on this one Famine.  That is such a fantastic custom.  I love it, and really think think his backstory is awesome.  Very, very cool.  Simply awesome.

Cow... ;D :P

Like I've already told you, the backpack dealy is sweet! It looks great. I don't remember if you said he is the commander or if you are going to make the commander, but like I said I'd suggest adding some black on the faceplate of the commander. I can't wait to see the whole squad, and you damn well better be making the Jedi! :P ;)

Wow, that's awesome!  Good job there!  I like the details on the backpack as well as your backstory -> very cool! ;D

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.

That's an awesome custom, Famine; I love it!


 Sealed it with superglue you say? did you brush it on? How well does that work? does it leave a glossy or flat finish?

Great job! I keep seeing these great fan-fic Clone units that I want to make as well...

Your backstory was pretty cool, makes me want to see it in photonovel form...

Oh, they'll be in the Photonovel. I've just got to keep churnin out customs. The first story will take place on a small city, so it will be easyer for me to work that way. Anyhoot:

Yes, I sealed him with superglue. I didn't dare try spreading it with a brush so I used seran wrap with a tiny bit of olive oil on it, and then wiped it off, so only the residue stayed. Then, I put on a splat of superglue and rubbed it around till the paint was covered (careful on the joints!!!!!!!!) and let it dry for a few minutes. It seals just like it looks. It has the same reflective qualities as the white armor does. :)

I start work on the Jedi Knight right about...now.

Hey Kev,

At Wal-Mart you can get superglue in a brush bottle. Really easy to spread, and the brush is made of a fiber that doesn't gunk up.

Really? Sweet! do you use that as a sealing coat, DD, and does it come out flat?
