« on: January 26, 2009, 01:22 AM »
After seeing Psyclonetroopers New Hope era style Commandos, I decided to make a couple myself. Enjoy!

Nice work.  Good to see some EU style customs like this.

HOLY CRAP!!!

Great stuff Manglord.  Decals on the helmet markings, or paint?  I'm usually pretty good at deciphering the parts used, but I'll be darned if I can figure out what the backpack is on the eyepatch trooper.

That is some great work!  Is that the outline of their ride in the background in the first pic?

They were a chore to cut through, but they ended up looking cool I thought. The decals were printed up on a laser printer, then clear coated with Testors decal fixative. After applying them to the helmet, i gave them another coat of Testors flat clear acryl. The backpack was made using a Battle droid backpack and blaster. I cut up the blaster and added a piece to each side of the pack and added the M-16 piece from a Target clearanced Elite Forces figure.

FANTASTIC!  Never would've guessed any of that for the backpack.  Did you make up the decals on your own or is there a site where you got them?  Particulary interested in the writing on the side of the "pirate" trooper helmet.  Once again great job.

Wow, awesome custom clone!  Ilike the bandolier of grenades and the backpack.  Stunning fig all togehter - way more detail than what I've seen on most clone customs.  Hope to see more!
