Jettrooper Captain Altumus

Post by Uberlag on Mon Aug 04, 2008 3:28 am

Back during the early period of the Clone Wars, Altumus was a mere Jettrooper, however he showed great leadership skills and was promoted to Captain, his mission: to go undercover on Tatooine and find the Separatist factories and leaders. Accompanied by their mighty AT-TE (Nicknamed 'Bessie') , they will complete their mission at any cost

Very nice. I liked how you put him and the AT-TE on top of those pebbles, its much better than putting them on base plates. Smile Blue Arc

Awesome! I cant wait to see your AT-TE and Altumus in action! By the way, when we do missions, do I just get to do random stuff or do you assign us somethin and we do it?

However you wanna do it Alpha, but now instead of commanding from a Venator, Altumus will be commanding from inside his AT-TE Razz .

It is AWESOME! And until Saturday, you can pick it up for 10 bucks cheaper than everywhere else at Target, so go get one!
AT-TE, RGS, V-19 are all discounted. RGS is 107$ which is cool.

You know Uberlag, I've always wondered why you paint your clones arms and legs and torsoes as opposed to decals. Personally, I would use decals where ever possible and just paint the helmet and jetpack.

Because decals fall off for me ALL the ime, and stickers look weird in conjunction with paint.
Did REAL clone troopers use DECALS to PAINT their armor?
No.

You know, you have to SEAL the decals so they won't fall off. After you do that their practically permanent! Wink Blue Arc

I like how he looks except for the jet-pack. Is there any way you could smooth the rough parts? Fordo Yo!

Sorry but it kinda looks like clay Shocked But otherwise it looks pretty good! You could use a clamp to hold the clone in a position while you paint.

Oh, sand got wedged in there, and it has a coarse texture so some rocks get caught, like if you kneel in sand, some sand gets caught on your legs. Yeah, hot glue gun, but I've had to re-glue it multiple times.

Oh, do stop bickering you too, just work on your grammar Crusher and your use of smileys. And that should be the end of it Razz.

Now! The fig.

Overall, I like most of your troopers, however, one thing I find that I can not get past...is the paint job. I don't know if it's the paint or the application, but it looks terribly globbed on and puffy. The dots on his head look like two symetrical green pimples Razz. Maybe not put the paint on so thick? I like him though 8/10. Wink.
