A filler piece- 'fanfic' Mandalorian (4/22/06)
« on: March 27, 2006, 10:54 PM »
Hey folks, this is double posted from the Rebel Scum forums. Thanks for looking!
Marcg 29, 2006
Chapter 2 update for Rho One-Three-Eight's background story! Find it here.

March 29, 2006
Added articulation to my Scorch. Nervous as hell while I did it, too. I don't think it came out as clean as I would've liked. Tell me what you think!




March 28, 2006
Hey, folks. I've given this Clone a designation (subject to change in case it doesn't fit in with Clone designations, because I don't really read much Clone War material). Rho One-Three-Eight's story can be read here,  chapter by chapter as they are updated in the Rebel Scum Fanfic forum! Please pardon my writing, thanks!

First, these are some shots of the same character that is represented in my first custom, the modified #41 made into the Unknown Tactical Ops Commander. This is his representation as a communications specialist during the Clone Wars, before the Phase2 armor was introduced - AOTC style:





Next up is his Original Trilogy form, during the Galactic Civil War. I sort of decided he'd be an engineer of sorts, sort of like the US Navy's Construction Battalion, specializing in both engineering and communications (complete with a synthleather equipment pouch [right hip], fusion torch tank [left hip] and backpack):





The 'badge' on his left breast is actually a control panel for his 'pacemaker.' (His ROTS representation has a hole in his chest through which a lightsaber blade can be placed. Details later)


And finally, the 'Evolutions' style shot!





=================================================

Here's a sneak-peak at an AOTC clone custom. I'll have better pictures up when I get a chance to use the Digital SLR my school's loaning me:



=-=-=-==-=----------------------------
I was going to just make an SA Clone into a 501st legion, however, I kept messing up on the leg stripes (which I later found out that only a some 501st clones had, anyway,) and in doing so, stained his thighs blue from repeated correction and reapplication.

So, I decided to give him a little bit of the Bly treatment, and paint his entire thigh plates. One thing lead to another, and he ended up being a commander-esque 501st Clone.

Well, being that Appo is supposed to be the commander of the tactical ops unit, I thought I'd write a short fanfic-ish blurb (a.k.a., excuse for my painting ineptitudes. :P) later. But, for now, here is a snap shot:

Nice use of the evo sets too.
Awesome customs there, cant wait to see more!  ;D

Gday hyouriittai

Firstly welcome to JD and hope you have a great stay here.

Now I'm liking the style of your troopers very much you can see there has beed a great deal of thought going into them but the great thing that I like is that you have'nt gone overboard with the little extra's.
     Also you've done a great job with the paint apps very nicely weathered but not over doing it well done and hope to see more.

Welcome! NIce looking set of clones youve got there. My fave of the bunch is the engineer. That design is simple yet very effective. Excellent work. Im glad you made it over here from RS, I look forward to seeing more of your work.

Very cool looking set of Fan Fic Troopers you've got there.

Comm. Clone> Great Concept. You did a Great job of smoothing the Top of the Helmet off, where the Fin was. What did the Process involved? The Marking look Geat Very Original and the weathering is top notch. This is my Favorite of the Bunch.

Engineer Trooper> Another Great Concept. The Blue Marking look good, although the Paint Aps. look a little thick on the Helmet.

um coGood Job keep It Up.

Those are some really cool, really creative clones you have there. My favorite(s) are probably the RotS one and the OT one. I really like the use of the AT-AT Driver head on the Evo Stormie body. The backstory is practical and convincing, and your paint apps are smooth and the weathering is perfect.
My whole expanse...I cannot see...

Nice stuff you got going here.  I like the assembly of the parts a lot, and the paint schemes look great.  The best part is you did the perfect amount of weathering on them!  And I like the AT-AT driver head a lot on the one, I've got a few of those waiting to be customized too.  Great udpate and welcome to the customizing community here!

Galactic Marine I'm working on. All the parts are obviously still in some serious need of work. Torso isn't connected, need to modify pauldron, file and maybe crop kama, maybe add a little sculpting to the helmet for accuracy and of course, paint. Also gonna modify the knee pads maybe, and the shinguards. Needa hadd a pack, too.

Recipe:
Saga 06 Snowtrooper - head (hollowed out) and shins
Evolutions ROTS Clone - entire upper body, knee joints, feet, kama and possibly pauldron for parts
Saga 06 AT-AT driver - upper legs and pelvis

Wow!
Its nice to see somebody still making clone customs, I like scorch the best though.   ;D
The marines legs look a bit small compared to his torso I dont know why but it look odd to me.  ???
But it is still a great custom, I look forward to seeing more from you!  :)

It may be the akward angle at which the shot is taken, but you might be right! AT-AT drivers always seemed abit short, so this wouldn't surprise me. I'll measure it up to a #41 clone and see how their legs compare. Thanks for the excellent feedback, everyone.
