wow those look really nice. i'm most impressed with the paint apps on these guys. the armor looks like real painted metal, the depth of color and layering you have achieved is something that is rarely seen and sets your Mandalorians far apart from others i have seen lately. i like the addition of the bandolier with the bullets on it, that's a nice touch but not over the top. excellent work!

Man, these are some of the best Mandalorians I have ever seen.  The paint apps are really impressive and the mods and accessories that have been added really add a whole new dimension to these figures.  They make each one unique and its own figure and character instead of just a repainted bob fett.  great job.

Now that is a good idea. Combine clone parts with Fett bodies. That scared up human head is very impressive. I like the color schemes you did too.

Very impressive Mandalores.
I'll echo what i said over at scum, but the attention to details
like the darts on the belt are really what makes these guys sing!

As usual, fantastic work. Weathering, paint apps and parts use are all exceptional.

Thanks everyone for all the great feedback!  These guys have been a lot of fun to do and have turned out pretty much how I had pictured them in my head:)

I'm still trying to get the whole picture/lighting thing down, but here's a few shots that aren't too bad:)

Love all the little details.

Any females on the boards??

Mate I have to say that these Mando Commando's are simply breath taking and the Commando with the ornage visor has to be my favourite 2 BIG THUMBS UP.

Thanks again everyone for all the kind words!  I hope these guys spark some more interest in Mandalorians because as much fun as these are to make. . .I'd love to see some of your guys' takes on them as well!

Glassman-Yup, a female Mandalorian is in the works as i type this:)  Hope to begin sculpting her armor tomorrow.  Figured these guys needed a lethal mandalette to kick butt with too!

Small update, pics arent as clear as I would like, but I'll get  there:)











Thanks to Glassman, my Orange Mando has a name. . .Pierce!  If anyone else has any Mandalore sounding names for the other two, I'd be thrilled to hear them!

Thanks:)

These are beautiful! Very cohesive look.

 One question though. What are you doing for painting the joints? I recently made a mandolorian custom with the VOTC Fett body, but found that even when I sanded down the joints so they wouldn't rub, the paint still rubs off.  I was thinking maybe dying those areas but wanted to get your technique first. Thanks!

I love looking at these things, I showed them to a freind of mine and he was completely blown away. So impressed was he that I think youve inspired him to start customising, because he wants one so bad. All night last night that was all he wanted to talk about at work. I beleive he is currently combing the shelves looking for a Boba Fett. ;D Youve done good son, youve done good.

I however am interested in the female one you are working on. In this months SW Insider there is a cool article on the Mandos, and in that article there is a pic of a female. Im hoping to do that one myself, Ive got a few ideas kicking around but I havent actually started anything yet.

I like them all, but the new one with the air hoses is just freaking sweet. Excellent job.

I never got caught up in the Mandolarian craze but these figures are just great.  I love seeing the new images you've put up!

Are these for sale?! I've *always* loved the concept of Mando Commandos, but I've never seen them executed where I didn't say to myself "looks like a (insert color here) Boba Fett to me". THESE, on the other hand, are so unique... so NOT Boba Fett or Jango Fett.

Man, these guys need a PN or some kind of story... individually I would call them among the best we've seen on these forums. As a group I'd call them fodder for a video game franchise! :)
