Using pretty much the same recipe for my Blue SA ARC, I went ahead and made a Red one. Noticeable differences - weathering, use of the Clone Commander's belt and holsters and pauldron (modified), and skirt is made from a Brown Jedi Robe instead of Black. Ripped up a little bit to simulate battle damage.

I don't think he came out as nice as the Blue one, but I think it's better than Hasbro's version, so I'm happy with him.

Holy Testicle Tuesday!  That's one mean-looking mofo.  Looks like he's been in a few heavy firefights.  I like, I like.

Cool ARC Trooper, I agree that I like the blue one better, but this guy still turned out great.
The only thing that I would change is to reduce the amount of red markings on his face, it seems like the lines are a bit too thick (at least compared to the original and EE clone sets). 
I really like your sg kamas, great work there!

It's as big as a house on walking legs,
and whatever it steps on it crushes like eggs.

Today's update: another Clone  ::)

This time, I decided to make one of Commander Baccara's troops on Mygeeto... this guy was made from:

Saga Snowtrooper head
AT-RT Driver arms, torso and left hand
#6 Clone right hand
Commander Baccara skirt
Clone Pilot legs and feet

As I said on the NJ board, great work on this Galactic Marine.  I love the choice of parts, I think they work very well. 
For the backpack, I think you could use some of those pouches that come with the BBi Elite Force figures that Toys R Us sells.  I think the big rectangular one with a little tweaking would work fine.

Looks outstanding!  Kind of similar to the ones that I made too, but I think I prefer the legs on yours over mine. 

Well done, and thanks for showing this!

Today's update: Another Clone  ::)

Sorry, I'm just not sick of making them yet, and I'm not sure I ever will be. The possibilities are endless...

Anyway, this is kind of a FanFic Clone - I was working on a Cody Helmet, and then I got a chance to purchase one from Bantha5 (Ryan) so I figured his has to be better than anything I could make, right? So I scrapped Cody, and made this guy... I named him after my best friend who had to be put to sleep earlier this year - Commander Rollins.

Pretty much a #38 Clone repaint, but I added the visor which I removed from a POTJ Scout Trooper and modified slightly for a better fit. I used some of the helmet covering from the #38, but not all of it. I also threw a Snowtrooper backpack which I mounted a #41 Clone Antenna on, and gave him an ARC Trooper rifle. He's kinda cool, but he just looks like a Blue Cody ripoff... and I'm really not digging the "clean" look  :D

As I said before, nice job on this guy!  The Scout Trooper visor works pretty well, I was pleasantly surprised by that.  I would just add a little bit more in terms of legion markings to his torso to tie him more into the RotS color schemes than the AotC color schemes.  Cool use of the Snowtrooper backpack too.  ;D

I like this one, it's an interesting paint design.  I might add a bit of weathering to him, but just a little.

I can dig it. I like how he looks like he's from Episode 2 era.

I wonder if anyone has tried to mount that visor (Biker Scout) or the one we got on the Clone Commander on an Episode 2 clone trooper. I think that would look pretty sweet.

I love it!

That's cool. I'd try it but I don't have a scout trooper.
