My comments in bold. Smile

Alpha wrote:Firstly, Thompsons Finest = Republic Commandoes. They could defeat them. Y'know how fast you die from SBDs and B1s in RC? Pretty fast. And, on the Prosecutor, Sev was "incapacitated" within one freaking knife to the body (Doesn't kill you).

I know, but the name Thomson on a clone just makes me sick. Razz OK, but a basic clone trooper without the genetic enhancement of ARC Troopers which makes ARC Troopers better than commandos can't, with no amount of training, equal a commando or an ARC. They might be able to beat some commandos, but definitely not ARCs like Ordo or Mereel. Eh, no. AA is all you need. One anti armor shell takes out any SBD, and peppering B1s(no matter how many) with your deece rifle is a piece of cake.

He was attacked from behind and he was attacked by surprise, and the enemy jumped from about thirty feet up. Wink

Have you ever heard of the hammer of God?(no religious reference there; just using it metaphorically Wink ) Go up to the top of a high structure, like a cathedral bell tower and drop a pebble on someone. It'll strike them like a bullet. Drop a hammer and it'll shatter their skull.

Drop a Trandoshan holding a shotgun prepared to strike someone with the butt end on a clone commando by surprise, and I wouldn't be surprised if he goes down. Same story for why it don't kill you.


Secondly, ARC Troopers are better than Clone Commandoes.

Wookiepedia wrote:The ARC troopers, being the best and most elite unit within the Grand Army of the Republic, were the clones that were held in a higher regard than the Clone Commandos. Even the commandos acknowledged the superiority of the ARC troopers, Darman having stated that the ARC troopers were about the closest thing on the Republic's side that he feared and Atin having complimented the ARC troopers for being "pretty well raw Jango."

If they were put into combat with each other, ARCs win, hands down.

Yeah, I know that already. But like I said before, they don't have the genetic enhancement of ARC Troopers. Jango Fett could beat plenty of clone troopers, and even a whole commando squad. ARCs, he'd have a problem with.

Also, basic clones don't have the same independence as ARCs so they wouldn't be as effective, and they wouldn't develop any specific focus on the mission except for knowlege of the enemy. This is a clone trooper's kind of calls: 'Keep at em', boys!' Or 'Eat laser, clanker!'

Clone commandos had more independence because they were bred individually to perfect one aspect of a four man squad. Like Sev: He's a sniper; sharpest shooter in the GAR. Fi's a battlefield medic; he can patch up anyone in a jiffy. And Boss and Niner received special training to lead their squad. It's like slightly more of a commanding persona, like the white job clone commanders.

ARC Troopers have plenty of independence so they can focus on the mission itself with such brilliance as was expected of any Mandalorian, particularly Jango. You can't drill that into a white job.


Thirdly, and on to Thomsons Finest;
1. Most of them I like - Code and abunch of others to be precise
2. Secondly - Sometimes, Markers/Sharpies are used for marking areas of the helmet, not the whole helmet
3. Thirdly, they are overall good, just the issue with the helmet. Nice work!

That's what I'm trying to say; hopefully you'll understand me this time. Wink

The last one could use the most work. I don't like his Stormie outfit as well, it looks so stupid, using Stormies as clones.

Bash for sure, but Raptor came in second. Ditch the stormie helmet and armor; those are pretty valuable these days even with the battle pack.

Can we stop the debate already? We're all agreed on this subject:

No white job has the genetic enhancement of a Commando. If Aki wanted to make someone as amazing as what Thomson's Finest are pre-supposed to be they would need the genetic enhancement of pure Jango, not just ARC genes.

There are freaking books about commandoes for heck's sake. Roll Eyes And also, if you want to make "elite" squads, don't make them Clone Troopers. I used Aaron, Jack, and Brov (Brov is an exception). And for the ACP Commandoes, I had them taken out of the ARC Troopers.

ACP? Accelerated Charged Particle Commandos? ACP is a stand-in title for weaponry popularly chosen by Trandoshan mercenaries. Wink

Shows? The only canon location actual Republic Commandos are featured is in the video game and in the book series by Karen Traviss. Wink

Beg pardon? I'm not sure I understand. I'm just curious to hear what you mean by this. Wink

Wait, I think I have deciphered what he said. He's referencing Delta 77's comment and trying to help him to understand more about the Commandos, I think.

I hope.

He'd better be.

If you look at him, the sharpie job is pretty untidy. I have no problems with the stormie armour but, compared to some of our other sharpie users, you really need to tidy him up.

(Oh, and I thought that we were voting for the best one so I voted for Code Laughing )

How about you don't just scribble on a minifig with a Sharpie? What was the point in re-colouring the arms and legs, when you could have just used red ones? :scratch: Other than those basic things, see about decals or stickers - A sloppy line does not equal a Stormie's 'stache, nor does some almost-visible printing equal chest details. If you must use Sharpie or paint, mask off the areas you don't want to paint with some tape. Really, just think about it before you do it, mmkay?
