new build (open opinion)

Post by Titus3643 » Thu Feb 03, 2011 7:36 pm

so as my scout trooper build is wrapping up i already have the feeling ill start another one soon. so i was thinking... i have no idea what i want to do :blink: all i know is that i want to do a ep. 3 clone. i was thinking a commander like Cody or Gree. something that would take a long time but really pay off when im done. if not them maybe a shock trooper or coruscant trooper something that i could paint and battle damage. im open to opinions, recommendations, or what the garrison would like to see.
cheers

Do we have one in-garrison?

I personally want to do a Neyo or maybe an ARF trooper after I finish my Nihilus, but it looks like funding is going to be a real issue.

Yes, we have a Bacara. Its Keano. We do not have a Cody or Gree. Either one of them would be VERY cool. :thumbs:

Last I heard, Scott G-Man Jones was working on a Gree. Not that we can't have 2, but we don't have a Cody.

A galactic marine would be very cool. Although very tough build. Not a lot of prop makers out there that do the stuff. U would have to fab some of it on your own. CTN has a few guys that build stuff for them. Steelblitz makes parts. You could contact him if your thinking about doing one.

Who DOES that anymore?!

(funny how the regular grunt troopers are getting so rare now that they're becoming special characters in their own right...)

Color is the new black when it comes to clones, right?

I think one thing to consider is your build/structure. I'm a bigger guy and don't think I would look good in some of the clone models yet Rex works for me with the kama and pauldron breaking things up. Just a thought.

my body build wont be a factor really since im 5,10 and 155 lbs. the army's got me on quite a diet so thats one of the main reasons i went TB for my first build because im a skinner bloke.

phase one would be pretty cool there is a cody build that has the phase one armor i might look into that.

Charlie C (Bozo the Clone) makes a nice kit for the price. You can't go wrong with it if you are strapped fro cash.

Yea, I thought is was funny too Titus. :rotflmao: It is very clean lines. Im going to get a set from him for my EpII grunt. I have the helmet now (JM) and its mostly cut out. Just some minor work. It would be cool to see a wall of white phase 1 clones :mrgreen:

I am ready to start my clone. I do have Bozo armor,that I want to make a Bacara with. The beauty of that clone is I can have him and a grunt clone with most of the same armor. My sandie is getting to small for me,and starting to crack. Plus I bought that one from Roger a couple years ago. This one I can make to fit me,I hope.

Maybe we can have a clone kit photoshoot showing off the different armor makers kits side by side before they all get built. It'll be a huge help on CTN since comparisons seem to be few and far between.
