I like the design, very unique, yet still fits in with the movie designs.

I'm not sure if it's intentional or not, but his lower leg stripes do not look like they are symmetrical.  (His right leg looks a bit too horizontal, while his left leg is a bit more "V" like).  That's a minor nitpick though.  Overall the figure looks great and the paint apps/weathering are very well done.

Can't wait to see the squad!
The scariest thing that I've ever seen,
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.

I know what you mean about the asymmetry of the leg designs. They aren't perfectly the same, and I'm okay with that. I'll just make up some reason for them to be like that...

hm...

Got it!!

The battle damage sorta scraped paint off both sides in battle, making them asymmetrical!

 :P

Sounds good to me!  It wasn't that big of a deal and actually looks kinda cool.  It's different enough so that it looks intentional.   ;)

Sweet, now I don't feel like an idiot anymore! w00t.


 :P





P.S. I took the pics for the PN (chapter 1). I won't be putting up chapter 2 until I get another custom done. Well anyways, I hope to have the PN up soon.

It's just about the 414th Legion (main character is Commander Krattak).


Does that help?

They are meant for things like special ops or secretive missions rather than ordinary battles.


Does that help?

SmartyPants has given me some good ideas for the title via PM, and the name of the PN will be Special Ops: A Soldier's Tale

So stay tuned, hopefully it will be up by today or monday!

Krattak is cool, I like the simplicity of the black and white and how well it came out. Looking forward to seeing some more squad members and your photonovel.
My whole expanse...I cannot see...

I guess I've been quite lazy as far as getting this thing started. I'm just always too busy w/ other stuff.

Well, here's 2 customs that I made yesterday: A 414th Legion Trooper, and a 414th Legion Spec. Ops Trooper. Lately I've been amazed at D_N's fabulous soft goods work, that I decided to try and make some clones w/ soft goods myself. I myself think the fabric makes the clone look much better.

414th Legion Trooper: This character will not be in the PN for a while.




414th Legion Spec. Ops Trooper: This character will be in part 3 of the PN, and will continue to play a big part in the following segments. And no, this is not a Target Exclusive clone just with some cloth added--this was a plain white SA clone that I made completely black. So yes, there was lots of work needed :)




LMK what you think!
