Sialboats, you make a fair point about simplicity. As it stands, the logo is rather simple, and it translates well to 1:14th scale, or whatever the lego tile size actually is. So it appears that we are in favour of simplicity for the logo, which I'm sure will make Jinja's job easier! Laughing
And with regards to the visibility of the text, I shouldn't worry about that. Only the basic outline will be visible on the decal anyway, I should imagine, so that's of little concern.

OK, as we near completion of the logo, we need to turn our attention to the next order of business: a Clone Commander minifigure. As a Corps Commander, he needs to be spiffy, so ARC-inspired details, Jaig eyes and the like might be a good idea. Who wants to make the fig? Unfortunately, I'm currently unable to do it, as all of my LEGO is now away, and I've never customised before anyway. Given that the corps crest is orange, it would make sense to give the comamnder highlights of that colour, but I won't demand that at this early stage, as an idea by one of you in another colour could look better. I've always been partial to commando green, (Camo) and this is a tactical corps after all. But like I said, I won't demand that specifics be decided at this early stage. Heck, we don't even need it to be custom, although I'm sure it would look better if it did.

Thanks! Pilot

I am currently out of blank clones, so if someone could send me a whitey I will gladly make the commander.

Why don't you make him just a normal non-custom clone? Cody's armour could be good, with some add-ons!

I would send it back, and as previously stated I am out of cash with no source of income. The Lead Tactian has spoken. Is that better J4ke?

One of y'all needs to take the lead in my absence and the follow the original agenda. First finish the logo, and then do a Commander Minifig.

And now I'm going to party.

Holy crap, Jake's back from Switzerland! Everyone look busy!

Anyway, nobody's been nagging me to do the logo, which is why it isn't done. I think I'll try and sneak it on here before Jake comes back...

Well, he's been in Switzerland for a couple of months (?), he's just been absent while he was travelling back.

Edit #2: There's probably about a pixel difference between this version and the last (which was here before the edit, and has now been deleted):



The orange circle doesn't want to neaten up, but it looks okay as is, I reckon. I think I'll stick a JSF on it now and gauge your opinions. Smile

It'd probally also look like my back-side, because the editing would look far smoother than yours. It just wouldn't match, the edges beeing rough hewn like that.

I say leave it as is, perhaps without the Delta-7, and a tad darker, more brown in it! Looks very nice Smile !

You can smooth out mine while you're at it, then, smart guy! Razz

About our Clone Commander and Jedi - If nobody else wants to write their backstories, I'll gladly take a shot at it. Obviously, we'll all chip in with ideas here, but I'd quite like to compile them, if that's okay?

I really don't know how to do that... blurring it looks rotten, and smearing it looks worse Mad , I say just darken the color and we're set.

Oh, I'd write their backstory in a heatbeat, just gimme pictures of them.

You could just add your clones and make them look 'rough hewn'. Or just bung them in anyway - I'm sure it would still look better than most logos out there.

Why do you need a picture to write a backstory?
