The troopers look great.  The Red Arc is my favorite - great detailing and the photo with the helmet off looks tremendous.  Keep on sharing!

-wow, youtr kashyykk scout looks awsome, really clean!

- your boss looks good, some nice weathering there.

- the arc looks really cool, again nice and clean and the blaster are sick, i keep wanting to do a set, but i never got around to it, yours look great though!

great set of customs, very well done and thanks for posting and sharing them with us!

Welcome, I'm glad you made it here!  You live in STL too, right?

I must say all three are really good customs, especially the Boss.  Painting is realistic and the weathering/scraped paint is fantastic.

Like the other too a lot too, and this looks like a sign of great things to come from you!

Yep, I live in STL, thanks for the compliments.
I have been meaning to post over here for a while, but hadn't got around to it until now.  I hope to start posting all my customs over here along with coreplanets and RS, and maybe join in on the group projects and stuff.  Thanks again for the compliments and the warm welcome from all of you.

I do like that Boss. That's actually the paint scheme I'm planning on my MM version. However, I think it would have looked better without the paint wear and tear. Just solid orange/red would have been better in order to show off the paint pattern.
Title: Re: CloneCommander1's Customs
Post by: Outrider on June 2, 2006, 06:56 PM
Outstanding clone commando!  I love the paint, weathering, deco, and articulation!  Fantastic job all around. 

The Red ARC is outstanding.  Beautiful job.  Do the weapons fit into the holsters?  Its just a very sharp looking piece.  I prefer red ARCS to the blue ones and this guy justr looks great!
Title: Re: CloneCommander1's Customs
Post by: CloneCommander1 on June 2, 2006, 08:05 PM
Thanks for the compliments guys :D.  Outrider, no the weapons do not fit in the holsters, but I am expireimenting with some holsters that might work, so as soon as I find one I like I'll post updated pics.  And Phurby, while the solid paint job might do a better job of illustrating the lines, I'm kinda big on weathering right now and I felt like Boss would have been through a lot(Although I think I overdid it on the chest :P)
Title: Re: CloneCommander1's Customs
Post by: Reid on June 2, 2006, 08:31 PM
Republic Commando Boss- Looks great, good weathering.
Kashyyyk Scout Trooper- Love the camo paint scheme.
ARC Trooper Fordo- Excellent weatering, he looks really badass and like hes been through hell and beyond.

Great job Clone Commander1.  :)
Title: Re: CloneCommander1's Customs
Post by: CloneCommander1 on June 5, 2006, 12:14 AM
Well I have some new stuff to show.  My updated 41st Elite scout with a BARC trooper pack-in helmet, and my Capt. Compton that I made for the monthly customizing challenge.

Title: Re: CloneCommander1's Customs
Post by: CHEWIE on June 5, 2006, 12:48 AM
The BARC Trooper looks really good.  I would suggest maybe doing a bit of cleaning on the chin area - did you dremel that?  It looks good but a bit of plastic looks to have some shredding going on.  The paint on this looks awesome.

Capt. Compton is a very interesting concept, and one that I like.  His shoulders do seem to be protruding out some though... ball joints are a pain in the neck to work with... I like the legs you used, but I might go back to the regular Veers arms?

 :)
Title: Re: CloneCommander1's Customs
Post by: Smartypants1635 on June 5, 2006, 11:11 AM
Looks good, If you take a ball grinding bit and use it on the hole of the arms you can actually get them to fit nicely, I've done it on several occasions.
Any way keep up the good work.
Title: Re: CloneCommander1's Customs
Post by: CloneCommander1 on June 5, 2006, 11:49 AM
I know that the ball joints protrude a little bit, I'm just too lazy to pop them out and start dremeling again, but I'll get on that soon enough.  Thanks for the comments.
Title: Re: CloneCommander1's Customs
Post by: Gregorbian on June 5, 2006, 10:39 PM
The Clones look cool, especially Fordo.  I'll have to make one of them and use yours as an example.  The weathering is very well done.

The updated 41st Elite with the BARC Trooper pack-in helmet is awesome, I'd much rather see a 41st Elite custom using that pack-in helmet (or a modified Scout Trooper helmet). 

Commander Compton - aside from the shoulders which you've already addressed, I really like it.  The parts use is cool (combining the Royal Guard parts with Gen. Veers is a great idea).  I would give him a different head (maybe a BBi Elite Force 1:18th scale head) to further separate him from Veers.

Post by: Clone Hunter on June 17, 2006, 11:17 PM
Can you just pop the cast head on? How brittle or soft are they?
Title: Re: CloneCommander1's Customs-Update 6/17-Clone Commanders
Post by: CloneCommander1 on June 17, 2006, 11:24 PM
They are not brittle, but quite hard, and for the popping on, it depends on what clone you use, #6 or #41. With #41, I had to hollow out the head a litttle.
Title: Re: CloneCommander1's Customs-Update 6/17-Clone Commanders
Post by: CHEWIE on June 18, 2006, 12:14 AM
Very, very good update.

Imperial - looks good, but I'd really try and find a way to get those shoulders to fit in the torso more...

Mon Cal Jedi - looks awesome!  reminds me of the one that In Rem made for his photonovel series!

Bacara - that's one of the best ones I've seen... very great weathering, looks like he just really killed Ki Adi Mundi.

Neyo - I'm probably one of the few that just don't like the Neyo helmet design that Lucasfilm created for this... but the custom is still fantastic.

 :)
Title: Re: CloneCommander1's Customs-Update 6/17-Clone Commanders
Post by: Ruprecht on June 18, 2006, 01:00 AM
Lookin' good CC. 

I also like Bacara, he looks like he's straight from the movie.  Neyo's accessories and paintjob are good -- is that insignia on his torso one of those stickers?  Mon Cal guy looks like a good Mon Cal Jedi should. 

I have to echo Chewie's comments about the Imperial.  The shoulders look a bit dislocated.  Burrowing them deeper into the torso would improve the look, I think.  Kudos for the attempt, as it's hard to work up the courage to boil, pop, slice, and dice sometimes.

Title: Re: CloneCommander1's Customs-Update 6/17-Clone Commanders
Post by: CloneCommander1 on June 21, 2006, 12:56 AM
Little update-
Bacara now has a removable helmet, check it out.
(http://threads.rebelscum.com/photogallery/data//500/medium/bacara.jpg)
And you can't tell from the pic, but he now has a metal antenna made from a pin.
As always, thanks for looking and please leave feedback.
Title: Re: CloneCommander1's Customs-Update 6/20-Removable helmet Bacara
Post by: IncomT65 on June 21, 2006, 01:34 AM
Coolness!!  8) A Bacara with removable helmet is on my to-do list as well. I like the head in particular. Which figure donated that? Not the AT-TE Gunner, because that one has more of a surprised look on his face. Are you gonna make a softgoods kama later on? That'd be really awesome.
Title: Re: CloneCommander1's Customs-Update 6/20-Removable helmet Bacara
Post by: CloneCommander1 on June 21, 2006, 09:57 AM
The AOTC evo clone donated the head.  As for the kama, I'm not sure, I've never really done anything with softgoods, but I may give it  a shot.  Thanks for the kind words!

Post by: Glassman6 on June 22, 2006, 08:13 PM
That is a great job on the figures too.
As for bantha5's cast, if you boil it, it will soften and you can slide it right on. Be carful not to squeeze it or you will deform the helmet.

Post by: Joerhyno on June 24, 2006, 03:53 AM
looking cool, I'm really liing the bridge.. might I suggest poking some wires into the broken off parts of the bridge, maybe even adding some "chunks" of bridge bits to the ends of the wires... and of course.. I cant find a single picture to help explain what I'm talking about, lol

EDIT:
although not a "bridge" http://wickedcollectibles.com/images/products/mcfarlane/mc_0011.jpg
kinda helps explain what I'm talking about.. see the piller next to him.. that's the look I was talking about.

Post by: CloneCommander1 on June 25, 2006, 11:35 PM
Sweet, I'll use that.  Thanks for the tip and kind words.

UPDATE-
I just threw this guy together for the MCC, he's my slave(ok, that sounded weird :P).   I'm thinking about adding a belt to help with the waistline effect.
Anyway, LMK what you think and thanks for looking! :)

Post by: VF/501 on June 26, 2006, 05:08 AM
To hide the waist gap try a piece of twine,  it'll look rough and down trodden and like a poorman's belt, plus it will hide the gap. between the torso and the hips.  Otherwise it is and engenious custom the fits the look of a slave very well.

Great work on the bridge and the Baccara BTW.

Here is the first in a series of many Imperial Commandos customs, Captain Argos. It still needs some touchups and weathering, and it's no sithfire, but it's a start.  For those that don't know, Imperial Commandos is a fan film that can be seen here (http://www.imperialcommandos.com).  As of right now there's no final armor, so my figure won't have armor for a while.  LMK what you think and thanks for looking!

Your Imp Commando helmets looks GREAT~!  I love the two basic designs they use for their helmets and yours definitely captures the look.

The Mygeeto Bridge I cant WAIT to see finished!  I'd like to do something similar for my Bacara and Galactic Marines (when I get my grubby hands on them next year, lol.)

I'm still very much a newcomer when it comes to building dioramas but this will surely give me something to shoot for:)

The diorama looks outstanding.  I love the addition of what looks like rebar in the concrete.  great touch.  I'm looking forward to seeing the completed item.

The figure appears to be wearing some sort of ghillie suit under portions of that red armor.  I like the concept but perhaps a daark wash over the shiney parts would toone it down a bit. 

No doubt that this will be an outstanding figure when complete.  I'm looking forward to seeing where this creative figure goes from here. :D

The head I would use, I think would be the Saga Jedi Luke (Jabbas palace or something like that). I was looking at him the other day and notice the face looks as if he's been scared. Maybe some dry brushing or something would bring out the detail to match the movie. I don't really remember the way Luke had his hair, so I don't know if that matches. I hope that helps.

Well, heres a small update, and a question.  First the update, I added little leg pouches where I split the flight harness, and it looks much better.  As for the question, which do you guys prefer? 
The more movie accurate belt, with the jacket sticking out.

Or no jacket sticking out?

Also the tube doesn't plug in on the chest, in ESB it tucks into the pocket on their right pant leg.

I'm amazed by the level of detail some of you can recall about these movies.  I've watched ESB a hundred times in my life and I couldn't even tell you if there was a hose on the harness of the flight suit  ;D

You did a good job on Boss but i suggest you smooth out the paint in some areas, but I know how hard it is to repaint a clone white ;D so I give you props for doing it that way.
As for the Jango, good start on it it should turn out really well, and are you going to use comdr cody's head for your boba fett?

Thanks CHEWIE!  He's gonna have a removable helmet soon, also, and ESB fett is in the works. Anyway, on to the update.
I've been on a big ROTS clone kick lately, so here are commanders gree and bly along with a better pic of the BARC trooper.
I had some help from my dog on the pited armor on bly's left chestplate, and I actually like it with the little crater.

But wait, there's more!  Here's my almost done jango for the group project.  I elected to use the pilot legs instead of sculpting over the VOTC because jango seems to like the wide leged stance in the movies.

Finally, after finding a VTSC Luke for 3 bucks, I added some weathering to his helmet.

Looking sharp there CC1.  My faves are the ARC with the articulated knee joints and the Boba Fett.  Both are done well and the added articulation really makes them shine.  Is that a modified Boba Fett helmet?  It looks more in scale than the Hasbro version.

Also, what joints did you use to achieve the ARC trooper's knee articulation?  Great stuff

Thank you outrider.
The Boba helmet is glassman's expanded fett cast, and it really is great.  The ARC's knee joints are just plain clone knees, transplanted onto the ARC.

Im liking it so far CC1. Its kinda got a Mando Wook feel to it. I love the backpack.

In my opinion though, some of the rougher edges on his armor could use a little sanding.

Same with the helmet, I like the helmet though. The visor looks very good.

Here's the final pics for this guy, and I gave him a name and backstory too.
Krurbeca
Krurbeca was born into imperial captivity on Kashyykk, and lived through a childhood of slavery, before finally escaping on an imperial weapons frigate to Courascaunt.  Once there, he began working as an bouncer at bars and clubs, using his natural muscle to his advantage.  One night, a bounty hunter named Telon Anor saw Krurbeca hurl a party crasher 20 feet into a wall, and Telon took notice.  At the end of the night, Telon asked Kurbeca if he'd like to join his bounty hunting gang.  Kurbeca accepted, and together with a droid named IB-209, they have become one of the most proficent bounty hunting teams in the galxay.  Kurbeca quickly ammassed quite a collection of exotic weapons, all of which he is proficent with, and usually serves as the brawn behind Telon's brain.
