Okay here is my custom thread. I will post more as I make them but for now, this is what I have. I'm new btw keep that in mind pinch.gif

Clone Wars Animated Clone Commando:

Not much going on here but I did like the overall look. I cut off the fin on the old helmet mold and widened the end of the visor a bit. Then I painted part of the visor and put the pack on. I tried to keep it simple.

41st Elite Corps Trooper w/ holster and backpack:

Nothing was really done here other than swapping belts with a Commander Gree and putting the backpack on. I just decided to show it because I think it works really well and is a good stand out from the other clones.

Lastly I like my clones to look like they've been through hell xD

 

I don't know if I really did enough to call them customs but hope some of you like them. Overall I was pretty happy with them.

I like where you're going with the Clone Commando. I think he still needs something, though. RC's were different from other clones, even in the way that they were raised and trained. He needs something to set him apart from the other clones. Maybe bulking up some of the armor? Around the shoulders, perhaps? I'm not sure, but as I said, I really like where you're headed with him.

The 41st Elite are my favorite Clone unit, so I'm always happy to see more of them. These guys look good. The weathering on the heavy gunner is extreme, without being overdone.

Happy customizing!

These are good starts for someone just begining. I like the Commando with the smooth helmet and the widened visor he would stand out in a group. I think he needs a few more accessories such as a large pack or a leg gun strap. The weathering job on the last clone is not overdone. Did you dry brush it on or use another technique?

Yeah I just tried to avoid sculpting. Especially since I don't have any supplies for that yet. Although sometime in the future I'd like to do something else with it.

I just brushed on black paint instead of ink, and wiped it away. Then I scratched off the parts that looked to excessive. Next time I'm going to use Black Indian ink, I just didn't have any on hand.

Thanks for the comments.

Welcome to the community... I'm obviously not fond of clones (see my signature) but you're new so I'll cut ya a break. wink.gif Also, I like to do anything I can do to help people, and I thought I would warn you not to bother with the india ink. To start, eventually it turns green. (Think about tattoos, the black always turns green because they're done with india ink) All you have to do is mix some paint and water. Just thin it down to an ink consistency. That outta do the job.

These are some of the first "animated" CW figures from the current show we've seen, so that's a change of pace. So far people around here take the animated and make it realistic, so keeping the format is novel.

I think "bulk/mass" needs to be added to the commando. How do do it is the age old myster. pinch.gif

for the commando, try putting the helmet/arms/legs on a bulkier, realistic clone body maybe? or even just giving him the removable clone armor from the training fatigues clone could work too~
