"I shall create, a Grand Army of the Republic..."

to counter the increasing threats of the seperatists." - Supreme Chancellor Palpatine - AOTC

I love that line. :P  Anyways, I thought I would share part of my collection, and my favorite collecting focus: Clone Troopers

Sorry for the quality of the pics, that's the best I could do at the moment. :-[ (I $uck)

Here are some pics of my current "Grand Army" before reinforcements arrive in May, ala EE. :) :P



















As you can probably tell, one of my favorite scenes is the formation/embarking of the Clone Troopers at the end of AOTC. :)

I really enjoyed those pics!  You've got a knack with the camera, really zooming in to enjoy the details of your displays.   8)

Yeah, cool pix, Ricardo!   8)

Good start on the army there.  How many more are on the way from EE later on?

I assume you've seen that pic of the insane pile of Clones that I've posted a few times in the CW forum, right?  (not mine though)

I like you're better, since they're actually in marching formation there.  Looks great.  Keep it up!

:o Sweet! Love the SA army.

Did you do the customized Gunship cannons yourself?

Thanks for the kind words guys.  :)

Let's just say, I'm looking to triple my current numbers. :P  I just checked out those pics in the CW forums, WOW!, now that's some army. :o

Did you do the customized Gunship cannons yourself?

I bought them off a guy on Ebay, but they look pretty simple enough to make yourself.  The guys over at snowtroopers.ca have a nice write up w/pics on how to make your own gunner bubbles.

No wonder I didn't find any SA Clones.

Freakin' sweet!

Me too! I actually never did see a SA Trooper at retail. :( 

Here are a few Troopers of the Stormie variety. :P

Nice collection Ricardo. I just love seeing ranks of troops like that. I wish I had that many Clone Troopers, but I try to make up for it with my Stormies  ;D

All looks great - you should make some sort of movie style diorama and put it in the customs section.   :)

Nice pics Ricardo.  I don't know if I should continue to feed your habit of clones.   :P

Impressive, most impressive.  Maybe someday my army of ROTS clones will rival yours.  :)

I'm currently in the process of re-deploying/merging my Clone Army with new aquisitions.

This is a rough estimate for the  "Grand Army", but I'm probably looking at a force of over 200 Clones strong. ;D

Pictures coming soon.  Who wants to play?  ;D ;) :P
