Great setup.  And I must say you are definitely getting a knack for taking pics.

Very nice army Anton.  I like that you have your ROTS and AOTC clones seperated - mine are all just lumped together.   :-\  What's the story with this guy?  Green Bay Packer Trooper?  ;D

I've always had a good eye for composition. It's the lighting that gets me every time. :P

The separatists might take me a while, I have to figure out how to reset some of the legs that warped while being packed away.  :(

I feel your pain.  I had a few battle droids that had the same problem.  I have them on stands so it doesn't seem to be much of a problem.

An army set you don't see every day...







































































Whew! A lot more than I expected.

171 troops are on the board. Not included in the count are the tanks since they have no AI.

Next up... my Imperial Battalion. That one's going to take a while to get set up.  ;)

Again, really nice armies there Anton - like you said, the droid set up isn't something we see a lot of, with more people focusing on clones or Imperials or something along those lines.  That is a really nice display.  The droid army overall is an area I've always seemed to neglect in my collection, and your set up reminds me of some of the things I haven't grabbed.

That's way too cool Anton. My passions for army building are as follows: Battle Droids, Planetary Natives (Ewoks, Felucians, etc.) and ships (specifically Tanks/Walkers). I like to think my Battle Droid/Seperatist Army is fairly large at about 100 guys, but you easily have me beat. I like how every droid is displayed in organized squads, with bigger things like tanks to the sides and rear. You really need to set up these Battle Droids facing off against your Clone Army, because that would be impressive to see.

Two more things... your Crab Droid is backwards, and is the front and center Tri-Droid a custom? It's pretty cool looking.

:-[ Oops. Thanks for catching the crab droid.

As for the Tri_Droid, that's the one that comes in the Mygeeto BP (along with the SBD in front of the Spider Droids.)

Thanks for all kudos guys.

EDIT: Fixed all but one backwards Crab droid. Botched the focus on the new pic, started taking set up down. :P

For the curious, I've updated the post with the troop total of 171 pieces. (non-AI machines excluded i.e Tanks.)

Also replaced all but one backwards droid picture.
