Commander Apollo

Post by Odd Ball on Wed Apr 08, 2009 10:58 pm

Here is a clone commander that I made a while back. He is the leader of my legion, the 12th Elite Legion.









He is the Commander of my Legion. I think he turned out quite nice. He is all handpainted and I didn't use tape, and he was free handed. I think he is my best Clone yet. Smile

And for those of you wondering, I use Timia Acrylic paint. (I never use decals or sharpies) Shocked

Please leave a comment and tell me what you think. Thanks.

It looks cool but you need to change the name because Commander Apollo actually leads the 501st legion.

That's a big fail right there, Commander Appo is a leader of the 501st. Anyway, this is interesting...but nothing too special.

If it's waterslides you want to understand, the answer is waiting in your PM inbox. Wink

Back to the figure: I quite like the helmet, actually. However, the torso looks rather messy. I guess that's why many people use decals or stickers for the torso and, often, use paint for the helmet. Wink

Keep using paint for the helmet! Add another layer and touch up on some parts of the helmet, then spray with acrylic sealant.

Just like to refer you to my guide here:

I love the patterns you used. Most people would probably tell you to use decals now, but I'm not, 'cos I'm the exeption who doesn't use decals! Hola Wow!

Awesome fig anyhow.
