Anyway, nice job. Lookin' forward to what these'll look like.

No, they don't...Later on they all were different!

UPDATE!! I have 3 of the torsos done, and 3 helmets halfwayish done! Laughing

No, actually... they were. I just read RepCom: Order 66, and they all had black Katarn armor. I don't know why so many other people make them all different.

But those helmets look nice!

What reference pics are you talking about? I've found several that depict them all black:

http://www.majhost.com/gallery/Torhuki/Random/omegasquad003.jpg

http://www.majhost.com/gallery/Torhuki/Random/star-wars-30th-annive-r50011.jpg (Keep in mind these are official Star Wars figs')

http://www.majhost.com/gallery/Torhuki/Random/2607543522_b1d5d52290.jpg

And I don't see how a fan-created Lego minifig supports anything in the official Star Wars universe.

Anyway, I guess it's not that important. You've already started down the road; no turning back now.

Well I've found just as much (if not more) depicting them wearing individual colors... And what I meant about wuzzie was that he found a bunch of pics depicting them all individually colored as well... Lucasarts wasn't very clear on this topic! Laughing But I like them individually colored anyway...gives it a more repcom feel! Laughing Wink

There is this picture:



Purple and red armour markings? Wink

I think it doesn't matter anyhow.

And hey; I made the decals. I think it looks awesome with lots of colours and markings.

So who cares if accuracy isn't totally right? Where would anyone be if custom clones had to be explicitly accurate? Razz

Without some of the best ones, for sure...Wink

Actually, I did it once before you even posted your commandos... Wink

Anyway, I can't wait for these clones to be finished! Although it would look more professional if you spraypainted the commandos silver. Razz

Let me know what you think. I know they're not the best, but, In my eyes they're pretty good.

Okay... That still doesn't show any black ones. =P But this picture is from when they first became a squad; afterwards they all switched to matte black armor. If you require more evidence I just reread the first paragraph or so of Triple Zero, and Fi said "And now they issue it [black stealth armor] to us?

Personally, I find it akward to have one black commando and the rest are normal... Almost like, "I deserve more camo than you do!" =P

I hope I don't come across as confrontational. I'm just trying to prove a point... Not bashing what he's doing. I think they look quite good, if inaccurate.

I guess I defend it this way is because commandos are my favorite part of Star Wars (i.e. I don't want people to mess 'em up). XD

Yeah..we all hold to something. I love Commandos too - if I'd known that Omaga Squad were Matt black, the decals, I'm sure, would have reflected that. But all I had to go on was that picture and Wuzz's commandos. Wink
