Very nicely done! I like that fire and smoke effect and love your mini dio base. The paint apps on the figure are just right.
Great job!

Title: Re: FialaFernbrugg's customs
Post by: FialaFernbrugg on November 30, 2009, 11:35:37 AM
The backpack and the flamethrower are complete self-made.
I have also made a YouTube video of that Trooper where you can see how I made that custom:

Now I want to show you my favorite, the Clone Assassin.

For the custom I used the body of an ARC-Trooper and the head of a BARC-Trooper. The vibro-blades are made of plastic.

Here the link to the YouTube video for the Clone Assassin:

That is great. Can't wait to see your Clone Assassin.

Btw in the video that I made for that custom you can see some tricks to make a Clone Assassin. Maybe you can use some of them.

Post by: Phatty on December 01, 2009, 11:59:19 AM
I did see that video, and will be pirating some of those ideas!  My biggest question is, how did you paint on that symbol on his helmet? 
Title: Re: FialaFernbrugg's customs
Post by: spudafett on December 01, 2009, 12:16:57 PM
I love it! using the gauntlet from the arc trooper as a base for the one blade is briliant!  very well done, and nice clean paint apps to boot.

ooooh that's awwwwwesom!   that's one of the neatest twist on the clone trooper kit I've seen yet! 

the BARC pilot pilot helmet suddenly looks a lot more sinister to me now...

At first I made a sketch of the symbol with a pencil.
After that I painted the symbol with a very fine brush on the helmet.

This is my custom Speacial Ops Clone Trooper.

This is awesome Fiala. I was going to mention JubJubJedi's drawing to you when I saw you figure, then I scrolled down and see that You made the figure from the pic you posted. I remember when he was posting the drawings as he came up with them and we would comment to help him refine some but most were perfect first run. As for your version of this clone, I love it. Great parts and painting. The only thing that kind of sticks out is the large leg pack, for me it would look better with a smaller one. You have done a great job with it and I agree it is one of your best. Right up there with that Clone Assassin.

yeah, you are right the leg pack is too big. I had only this one at home so I took it. I hope I can find a better one to fix this problem.

Here is my next clone custom.

This time I want to show you my mountain infantry trooper. He is part of the 18th mountain infantry regiment.
For the custom I used a Ep. 3 Clone Trooper from Saga Legends, white cloth, LEGO glasses and backpack, onion net,some packs form a tank model kit and some other accessories.
The stand is made of wood, model kit snow powder and some accessories (EMP launcher, packs etc.)
The flag is made of paper and wire.
I decided to make this custom after my military service (6 months)  is the Austrian army.

The first picture shows an austrian soldier from the Jägerbattalion 24 in the Alps.

You Tube video for the mountain infantry trooper:

and here is a small YouTube video of my own adventure in the Alps:

and if you are interested  to see more pics of Austrias mountain infantry here is a good video:

Very nice! I love the little diorama,great effects with the snow on the gun and everything. The only thing that kind of looks out of place is the Lego glasses, but at the same time they almost work. Nice job on the soft goods as well.

I'm a big fan of Hasbro's imperial jumptrooper but he has no jetpack and the correct weapon.
This was the chance to make a new custom.

I used a Jango Fett jetpack and repainted it. For the rail detonator  I used a DC-15 blaster rifle and plastic.

If you are interested to make this weapon and jetpack:

dang!  definately NOT going to pass on the next jumptrooper I see....  I've been hesitant to get one not only because of it's lack of accuracy but because it looks SO close to the evo-trooper's design...  But yours definately puts it to the way it SHOULD have been.  wish hasbro wouldn't drop the ball so often...

Military Police Trooper

Hey guys here you have my first custom in 2010. This is my Military Police Trooper with creature. I used for the custom the helmet of a Quad Gunner figure and the body of a normal
Clone Trooper. The creature is completely fantasy. He wears a half-Kama with one DC-17 blaster pistol and a DC-15s speacial. He has also a short tasset, radio equipment and a baton.
The weathering is made with drybrushing.

Story:
This Trooper is part of the 5th Military Police Brigade.
The tasks of this Brigade are:

NICELY done.  I love it.  I love the half kama idea, and the helmet looks superb.   

Im not a big fan of the drybrushing and weathering on this one...  It looks a little too obvious.  It may just be the lgihting and the camera flash though bringing out the major dry brushing strokes and covering the finer details, as is often the case. 

another great figure!  look forward to more great ones in this new year.

Or have you a good Jedi who can lead the MP?
oh I have an idea for one... started messing around with some RANDOM parts, witha  Marvel Universe figure base, last week trying to put together a new character but I got stuck.   My thinking is he's a Jedi that's a true warrior, a total fighter with the ability to rally the troops on tough assignments, a bit of a rogue in the eyes of the Council but a true straight arrow... maybe I could turn him into a Paladin type Jedi, like a constable/marshal.   He could lead a unit of tough as nails MP clone troopers with pride and honor

the character then didn't have a name or much of a bio (since I didn't have much of a role or function for him yet when I stopped working on it) but all that constable stuff is going off rapid-fire in my head right now.   

any thoughts on those sketchy ideas?

Fiala I loved the custom so much I went on photoshop and made this. I think it's pretty impressive seeing as it was my first try and I'm only 14 with no experiaence.

I would love to see an at-at arctic version of this, perhaps similar to Hemble's at-at door gunner. I could see so many great variations on this. I so appreciate the tutorial you have given us on this. It is quite something to see you guys share your secrets so openly and we appreciate it.

lambonspit found a name for the police creature

lambonspit send me today this message with a very very cool name for my custom Military Police creature:
"How about something like an Aarisian Hound. From the planet Aaris III, a lush planet full of jungles and oceans, the hounds were used in the civil war which took place between the native species prior to the galactic civil war. The hounds were shipped off planet and traded for weapons by the primitive race, and were quickly identified as excellent sentry guards due to their excellent sense of smell and their physique. Their planet of origin was forgotten soon after their discovery, and as such, domestic breeding became popular amongst police forces. Their planet of origin was once again founded on 8 ABY when an imperial Moff conducted research on the planet. "

I love it mate. I try to bring it on the custom base as well, this is really awesome. First this great wallpaper from Hangarbay94 and now this great story and name for the creature.
Thank you so much for your support guys, I really appreciate it.

Great story. I know one thing, I would love to see a Hothy version of this same type of figure used to sniff out rebels in the Echo Base after the Imperials conquered it. This is just a great concept. There are also hounds used to sniff out Jedis in the new Imperial Commando novel!

Sergeant Obs

Hey guys here you have my next custom Trooper. It is Sergeant Obs from the 27th scouting battalion (the clunker watcher). This is my first custom clone with camo. I gave him also a defilade-vest. A big thanks goes to Commander Kurgan and Clonehead I used their Clones as guideline for the camo. The mini diorma is mainly made of wood and plants from the  forest.
The name obs comes from observe

accessories:
This is also my first custom Trooper with GI Joe parts. I used the backpack, the pistol and the knife from snake eyes.
The defilade-vest is made of an onion net and brown and green cloth.

as always, the You Tube video will follow next weekend with more details

I hope you enjoy the pics:

Nice job on the camo clone, Fila! That defilade-vest turned out pretty cool and I like how you wrapped it on his gun as well.
Your little mini dio base turned out nice, also. That moss looks great for the groundwork and the little nameplate that you made for it is terrific. Looks like a front page story to me.

Loving the bases you create, these are excellent, as for the figure it is well put together and the paint job is cool, I can honestly say the overall look is well done (however it's a clone and not my cup of beverage, I can never seem to bring myself to get excited about clones, as everyone seems to do them - however saying this I really like those bases).

Clone Trooper Phy

Phy is part of the 9th NBC defence company. The task of this company is to prodect other clones and the civilian population from toxic substances.

equipment:
He uses a oxygen cylinder and two different  analytical apparatus . Some parts of his armour have an acid-fast cover.
He has also a DC-17 pistol with holster.

information about the custom:
I used for this custom figure a evolution pack Ep. III Clone Trooper. The oxygen cylinder and the holster are from Rum Sleg. The pipes are made of an o-ring seal. The mini dio is made of wood and the toxic substance is a wood glue/revell paint mix.

I hope you like it.

New prject: Clone Wars Clone Assassin

Hey guys I hope it is ok to post some wip-pics of my newest custom project. When I saw Ironhide's custom Clone Wars Fordo, I got the idea to make a Clone Wars custom of my favorite clone, the Clone Assassin. So a big thanks to Ironhide for this great custom trooper and the inspiration. I started with the helmet two days ago. It is my first scratch build helmet so it is not very good.  I hope I can finish this custom in the next week.

thanks a lot guys. I over-worked the helmet today and painted the figure.

spudafett:
thanks. I used plastic wood (knetbares Holz) from a company called Grilith. I must say not the best choice but it worked better on the plastic than I expected.

Clint:
Yeah the visior is painted with light orange. I destroyed the original paint while I was working with the plastic wood and I thought the orange would look good on that figure.

Clone Assassin (Clone Wars)

I finished my first Clone Wars custom figure. I hope you like my custom Clone Assassin. The basic figure was a Rex. I over-worked the helmet a little bit since my last post. The vibro blades are made of cardboard. The colour is a mix of 60% light blue and 40% firered dull. The weathering is made with darkwashing and drybrushing. I gave him a patch to show the cruel training of the Clone Assassins.

story:
Clone assassins were a specialized class of clone troopers created by the Kaminoan cloners on the planet of Kamino. These troopers were commissioned by Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, through a special order during the Clone Wars. The assassins were trained specifically to eliminate Jedi by utilizing Teräs Käsi, a form of unarmed combat. Through training duels with Padawans of the Jedi Order, the clones developed greatly enhanced speed as well as an aptitude for anticipating strikes and the ability to resist Jedi mind tricks.

I'm a firm believer that hasbro does the things they do with joe figs because it is "tradition" that joes be articulated AND come with a stand, and a file card.  This is standard since the line was developed back in the day...  Fans of the gi-joe line, and collectors would throw a fit if the quality, and traditional aspect of the figures was changed...

star wars figures however have ALWAYS been plaugued with changes.  Hasbro is so focused on making "movie acurate" figures that the things we want are lost, stands, articulation, better accessories... hasbro spends too much on the tooling costs of making 100 different versions of the same character as well.  Their joe line has been standardized and parts are used over and over with only one or two new pieces required for a different figure.  This makes costs for new figures lower on their end because they don't have to build new molds.... 
if hasbro would scrap their entire star wars line and start from scratch using the recipe they have with their new joe lines, I think we'd all be a little happier.

I totally  agree. It's a fact that every Star Wars line is different. The Force Unleashed line comes with a stand, most of the others not. Some figs like Commander Gree from the the Legacy Collection have excellent articulation others not and so on. I think Hasbro make this changes on every figure (choins, weapon boxes, BAD parts and so on)to keep the figures attractive for us but I would prefer to see  a standarized concept on all the figures. I know it is not possible to make a ultra articulation on every character but why is there no articulation in the legs on Cad Bane and some other CW figures. The Gree articulation on every realistic-style Clone , leg articulation on every CW character and a stand with ervery figure and I would be the happiest collector.
Title: Re: FialaFernbrugg's customs
Post by: spudafett on February 05, 2010, 10:09:53 AM
they claim that articulation adds to their "tooling cost" and that they don't put in articulation because "kids don't care about articulation" and by not adding it they keep the cost down...
but wait...  the cost down for who? cuz figures keep going UP IN PRICE?! and DOWN IN QUALITY?

I understand that tooling all the joints and parts is more expensive, but instead of making new molds/tools for every single figure they could standardize it like they have with the joe line and save money and keep the articulation! 

If they want to cut corners with the figure then they should at least include extra accessories with the figure to make up for it.  The legacy collection figures with the weopons locker idea was fantastic!  I would rather see that than a stupid BAD part...  I know BAD parts are what drives alot of their sales because people will by a realy crappy figure just to finish their BAD.  however, I would rather see a playset, or single carded BAD's instead.

which brings up another issue, why NOT bring back the Build-A-Droid vintage factory? or at least something similar, and include a slew of BAD parts that have already been offered previously, this time being all together!?  I know I'd buy it!

ok... sorry for the ranting thread jack.....

Kazdan Paratus

Kazdan Paratus was an Aleena Jedi Knight and General who fought in the Clone Wars and survived Order 66.
In his early life and work towards the Jedi Trials, Paratus did not possess the detachment most Jedi needed in order to pass the Jedi Trials, instead preferring to hole himself in his room and to build droids for the Jedi Temple, to aid in training Padawans. After completing the Trials with his machines, Paratus was appointed a Jedi Knight of the Galactic Republic.
Approximately 16 years after Order 66, the insane Jedi was discovered by Darth Vader, who sent his apprentice, Galen Marek on a mission to eliminate the Aleena Jedi on Raxus Prime.
(wookiepedia: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Kazdan_Paratus)

Post by: spudafett on March 05, 2010, 03:29:28 PM
that is an awesome rendition of the character.  Now you need to do a junk golum to go with him. :)


I think I wouldn't have used the grevious arms though... the lack of elbow and wrist articulation turns me off to using those parts (you know how I am with articulation)...  I think what I would have done would be to use the arms off of two ig-86 droids and removed their claw hand and replaced it with something else....
ingenious use of the lower hip section of the Ig-86 droid though (I am correct with that part right?). using it as a backpack is genious.  I'd never thought of that.

As for Kazdan here, well, he's definitely incredible.   Firstly, he's Aleenan and I love that species for some reason and customs of them are ALWAYS welcome.  Secondly, EVERYTHING about this custom is totally cool, from the droid arms to the details changes you made to Tsui Choi.   Just amazing work all around, certainly 9 or even 12 kinds of awesome

I see you have a great eye for detailing Spud. You are right with the Grevious arms (Clone Wars) but it is not the lower hip section that i used for the backpack.

Scrap Guardian

The Scrap Guardian was a droid construct created by Jedi master Kazdan Paratus. They were found on the junkyard world of Raxus Prime and were held together by the Force. The Scrap Guardians served as the core component of Master Paratus's droid army on that planet. Formed from detritus and cast off parts, they were animated by Paratus's Force abilities and served as sentinels created to defend Kazdan against hordes of opportunistic scavengers.
They use massive plasma spears that they can throw or strike with. They also have the ability to disassemble themselves into the ground. Like all metal things, they have little defense against electricity.

Just looking at the reference pic you can tell this one would take a lot of work and creativity. Luckily you have plenty of both. Great job!

FF,

Nice choice of figures to customize.  It never occurred to me to attempt a scrap guardian.  It must have been fun to put together.  When customizing, I tend to work with parts at hand.  You've made me remember that customizing can be completely form scratch.  Nice work.

I was thinking about that.... as small a frame as the animated IG-86 assassin droid is you could have used it as the base for adding all the extra parts to.  You could add all the extra greeblies to each individual segment of the droid, then swap the head out with one of the BAD heads and you could potentially make a fully super arty version of the junk droid. 

However, your scratch built one is pretty awesome.  As a static piece it realy captures the look perfectly, and in all honesty most customs are meant to be static display pieces, so it shouldn't matter!  I just try to work in articulation because it makes it more of a challenge to me.

Imperial Jet-Trooper

I found this image a few weeks ago and thought this could be a nice custom. I think this Trooper is from a game but I don't know from which one. Anyway here is the result:

thats pretty much amazing.  I love it.  I can spot the additions, most of them anyway, but they are done REALY well.  I would definately buy this if I saw it hanging on the shelf. 

It isn't the jump trooper from TFU is it?

FF, I think Wraith9 missed out a few E's...What he should have said was...

SWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEET! x 10 to the power of 5.2 million...

People seem to have forgotten that Star Wars existed, it's Clone this Clone that (no offence meant guys) it's about time we saw some proper Imperial Troops around here, after all this is theImperial Shipyards and I am an Old School Star Wars fan...Class of 77!

This guy looks as though he's New Empire, possibly one of the break away factions from the X wing novel era...

Lurve it!!!

Thanks a lot Spud, great that you like it mate.
Yeah I used many differnt figures for this custom (legs from a clone trooper, shoulder plating from Ripcord, arm parts from Jango Fett and also the Jetpack from Jango and some scratch build parts).
btw it is not the Jump Trooper from TFU game. Maybe it is a concept or a early version of it. The name of the image that I found on google is Jet-Trooper. I try to find some information about this trooper (wookiepedia, jedipedia, etc.).

Jules thanks a lot for your comment buddy (now this is a very long sweet  ;D). I also hope that we'll see some more Stormie customs here on the Yards but Stormtroopers a bit harder to customize because there are not so many variants of them, only the TFU game and some comics shows some other  Stormtrooper variants.

Make a hover chair FF and add Some Heavy Fire power to it....

or a walker chair.... I did that for my "mechanic" way back when I did the speeder bike diorama.... of course a storm trooper would probably get cybernetic enhancements, like replacement limbs instead of a chair...  unless he was a wounded defectee, then he might use a cheap chair or something... which is actually a decent story arc. 

clone trooper wounded in battle, loses his legs and is left for dead on the battlefield by his own comrades, until a local picks him up and nurses him back to health... he keeps his armor and builds a hover chair bristling with wepons to protect his new home...

Clone Medic

First of all I want to say thanks again to Spud and Trev for the great ideas (Clone Trooper with no legs) but I think I'm not good enough to realize your ideas. I decided to make a clone medic with the legless trooper.
Here is the result.

back story:
Here is Clone Trooper Sani CT-25-1784 (Sani comes from Sanitäter, the german word for medic). Unit 25-1784 was created on the water planet Kamino, like most of his other clone brothers. He served in the 327th Star Corps at the beginning of the Clone Wars. The 327th was sent to Geonosis to fight the seperatist forces there. Sani lost his right leg in this cruel battle. With only one leg he was no longer able to fight in the frontlines of the republic clone army. He was moved to the 5th medical brigade where he served until order 66. His fate after order 66 is unknown.

It looks great Fiala! when i saw this figure i thought of Corr from the republic commando novels, instead he got 2 robot arms. Have to say that i like the robot leg on this clone. Great work as always.

And you have to show what type of material you used on your custom base (the long grass)

Geonosis ARF-Trooper (finished)

Advanced Recon Force Troopers, also known as Advanced Recon Fighters, or simply ARF Troopers, were specialized clone troopers that carried out short-range reconnaissance for Jedi Generals and clone commanders.

I painted the custom with revell paints and I made the weathering with the technics drybrushing and ink washing.
The background is from the IFT-X fighter tank vehicle.

I hope you like it gentlemen.

FialaFernbrugg,

First off great customs. LOVE the custom rectangles and the super slow painting you did. Was well worth the wait.

But I have a few questions if it is cool with you?

#1. Can you show me one of these Micro brush's with only one hair? Possibly a link to where they are sold. I need a few or 10 of them...

#2. Alot of people mention I hope Jay makes this figure in a tutorial is that Wraithnine from youtube? I am asking cause I dont know if his name is Jay. You mentioned him involving the brush up above and I was wondering who he is so when I see an ask Jay about the brush/colors etc.. I know who to ask.  ;D

Great job Mate. Please keep em coming.

I really do think that Hasbro will be hard pressed to make one this good. Lets face it Christoph's paint apps on this one are just fantastic.

Outstanding arf trooper, Fiala! I had started on one of these months ago and still it sits waiting. I take my hat off to you, sir.

thank you so much for your kind words gentlemen

Darth Creatine:
I will try to upload some pics of that one-hair brush, but it is really nothing too speacial

Darth Abshir:
Can't wait to see it mate

commanderCharlie:
Thank you very much Charlie, I'm glad that you like it

Tamer:
Thanks Shawn. Oh it would be very nice to see Waxer and Boil as ARF troopers from Hasbro.

Clonehead:
Thanks you very much Clint. I'm sure yours will be a lot better than mine. You are the camo master.

Walon Vau

Walon Vau was one of the Mandalorian mercenaries recruited by Jango Fett to train the Clone Army. He belonged to the group known as the Cuy'val Dar. The armor he wore was colored black.
Like Kal Skirata, he believed that the clones he trained should be brought up to be Mandalorian warriors. However, he took a different approach. Instead of treating the clones like sons, he taught the Mando way through discipline, and often violence. To teach his clones to be tough, he would often pit one against the other, for melee or even live-fire exercises. He gave them a choice: fight each other or fight him.
Vau trained the commandos in Delta Squad, and gave RC-1262 his nickname ("Scorch") after an ordnance accident that left them both without eyebrows for a time.
(Wookoiepedia)

I used for the custom a Geonosis arena bp Jango Fett figure. It is a bit hard to find pics of this character and his paintwork.

I hope you like the custom guys. A base for the Delta Squad and Vau should follow next weekend (if I can find some time).

Nice work!  I like how you switched from "gray on black" on his torso to "black on gray" on his legs.  The armor plates have a nice dull, almost powdery, look to them in contrast to the more shiny look of the arming vest underneath.  The scratches are a well-done touch, as well.  That's an easy aspect of armor weathering to get wrong and I'm not sure I could pull it off this well.  What head did you use for him?

I personally really like the Walon Vau. Kal Skirata, Walon Vau and Jango were the men behind the Clones and alot of folks dont know about it and those who do continue to make Clones and mention the 3 above but hardly anyone makes them and refers to the Clones.

Nice job on Walon Vau Mate it is a welcome change to the scenery. Like Wraithnine said it is Mando heaven around here lately but we all know that the Clones will ride again like always.

Great job mate keep em coming. Besides all the good comments and feedback you give me on EVERY single Custom I make I decided hell I should return the favor. But this Custom you made of Walon Vau is no sympathy words from me it really is that damn good!!!!!!!! **Period point blank**

SpecOps Stormtrooper

SpecOps Stormies operate behind enemy lines  to gather information about the enemies of the Galactic Empire or to eliminate VIPs.
They wear a speacial armor, so it is very difficult to detect them. They also wear a additional chest plating for a better protection in combat.

weapons: DC-17, T-23 spec blaster rifle
equipment: additional chest plating, night sensing equipment, high efficiency radio equipment
speicies: humans (only)

Basic figure was a TLC Spacetrooper. The night sensing equipment and the additional chest plating is self-made.
I used sheet metal and cardboard for the chest palting and LEGO parts for the night sensing equipment. I also used some parts from a broken data set on the figure.

I hope you like it gentlemen:

REIGN OF TERROR

The dark era has began. The senate doesn’t exist anymore. Emperor Palpatine and the imperial army control the former republic with fear and terror. But there is a new hope growing. A small group of rebels make a stand against the empire.

My little dio shows a street fighting scene a few days after the annulment of the galactic senate on Coruscant near the Imperial Palace.
The imperial security forces use teargas and batons against the rebels. The rebels on the other hand use incendiary compositions against the imperial troopers.

Some information about the custom:
The imperial security force trooper is basically a scout trooper. I gave him a half-kama, a baton, a self-made shield and some other accessories.
The protester is made of the body of a Rum Sleg figure and the head of a Luke Skywalker figure. I used some cloth and paper on him.
The dio (-base) is made of wood. The ground is from a company called “Faller”. The posters on the wall are from google and the smoke from the teargas grenade is just cotton.

I hope you like it gentlemen:

This is Clone trooper Olun from the 205th. He fires a AT-AGM (all terrain-antitank guided missile). The AXM-74 rockets are effective against every heavy battle droid from the CIS like spider droids, AATs, NR-N99, Octuptarra droids etc.

110clones:

CaptainLux:
Thanks a lot CL

Phatty:
thanks a million Pat

Luke Sprywalker:
Tank you very much Luke. Comments from you are always great and I'll try my best to make some more of these small dios.

TheCloneCommander:
First of all thanks a lot for the comment Trev. "Disappoint" are your serious? Man all I can say is that the camo on your Gunship is one of the best paintwork I've ever seen. I wish i had your skills my friend.

Irish Ninja 97:
Thanks a lot or "go raibh maith agat" (I hope that was correct)

Jedi Minstrel:
You are right I used a Joe weapon. I think it was the rocket launcher which comes with the Snake Eys figure but I'm not sure.

Clonehead:
Clint I'm glad that you like the little dio mate. It was a lot of work and I'm just happy that you guys are pleased with the result.

I can't exactly put into words how sick your customs are. Terminally ill, vomit inducing sick I guess comes sorta close. Since page 1, you've captured my attention with all of your inferno style troopers, then you kicked it up several notches on page 14 with Sgt. Orbs, with one of the coolest dio bases known to man ( Those trees are brilliant), and again on page 22 with the amazing Scrap Guardian, and yet again on page 25 with the clone medic, and AGAIN on page 31 with the Special Ops trooper, and everything in between........ But this latest effort by you has floored me...The rocket firing dio is not only imaginative beyond imagination, but only goes to show you have no visible signs of slowing up when it come to creativity.
Thanks so much to the Gods for you finding this site, and posting your amazing gift for customs. Seriously, dont EVER stop.

Barry

44th scout sniper brigade

This is my newest creation. A sniper Clone with a removable poncho and also a removable ghillie suit.
The ghillie suit is self-made. I used a net and white cloth.
The base is made of wood and some model kit snow powder.
I hope you like it gentlemen:

wow thank you very much dn, thanks a lot for your comment
a banner and Avatar from Jules would be very nice but not with "the greatest custom maker" on it because there are so many people here on the Yards with a lot better customs.
and btw it's not important what custom looks better the most important thing is that we all have fun with our favorite hobby
but thanks for the comment mate, it's always great to get a nice feedback

Both banners are awesome my friend. It's great that you used the Austrian Air Force emblem and gold is from now on my favorite colour  ;)
thanks a million mate.  It's hard for me to choose one of them but I think the banner with the border looks  bit better.
Now I need the help of Shawn to upload that  beauty.

Here is your Avtar to match the banner...I'm really pleased that you like them, they do stand out from my usual designs, as do your customs stand out from the crowd.

I was busy this weekend (two custom bases and we had a hornets' nest in the garden).
But I found some time to make a fast custom. First of all the idea isn't from me. Jay made this about one year ago.
It's a trooper for the 327th Delta company  led by commander Deviss. I hope I can also pick up a secound commander Drax for a custom.
Thanks a lot for this great custom idea mate.

Here is Jay's video:

and again, not my idea. It's Jay's idea.

Commander Leto, the time has come:

Leto was the commander of the 1st Assassin company. He wasn't trained by a Cuy'val Dar. Palpatine himself trained him for only one purpose, to kill Jedi.
Leto and his Assassins supported the 501st legion during order 66.
After the creation of the Galactic Empire, Leto was absorbed into the ranks of the Stormcommandos.

A big thanks goes to Jules for his awesome hangar background.

18th mountain infantry regiment

Mountain warfare refers to warfare in the mountains or similarly rough terrain.  Mountain warfare is one of the most dangerous types of combat as it involves surviving not only combat with the enemy but also the extreme weather and dangerous terrain.

The commander of the 18th mir is senior commander CC-1987 "Falco".

The other trooper is an old custom that I made last year. His name is" Arx" which is latin for mountain.

Special thanks go to Jay(wraithnine) for the awesome Warhammer decals and LE (Luke Sprywalker) for the idea  "Bacara helmet with micro binoculars".


The emblem of the 18th mir

I don't know how you've managed to track down the grave of the fabled Midas, and dug this poor man up with the sole purpose of having him touch your figures, but you should be ashamed of yourself. Let the man rest. It's just the right thing to do.
Saying that your work is phenomenal would be like spitting in your face, as that term doesn't begin to describe the level at which you create.
Unbelievably good stuff.

344th Artillery Division

Hi all
Here is a new dio that I completed today.
Dekka (Commander Faie custom) is of course from the master himself, Jay. He sent me this figure for some stands that I made for him. Dekka is a phenomenal custom figure and I’m very happy to have him in my Clone collection. Thanks again for this oustanding figure mate.
Here you have the official topic for Dekka: http://www.imperialshipyards.net/SMF/index.php?topic=768.msg63699;topicseen#msg63699
The other figure was a Commander Deviss from TLC. The weapons are all rebuilt clone and droid weapons.

So here you have:
CT-2297  lieutenant "Dekka" and CT-1164 "Hama" with a AT-LIM90 (all terrain light infantry mortar) from the 344th Artillery Division"The Groundpounders", "Spearhead Company"

I hope you like it:

What an amazing piece of work! The clones look like large scale figures. Have you used Gundam pens to create the stripes? if not I'd love to see a tutorial or video of you painting a helmet. The detailing and precision of paint application is Swiss watch perfect....

clone trooper sergeant "Boomer"

CS-2207, nicknamed "Boomer," was a clone trooper sergeant who served in the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars.
Sergeant Boomer was a tough veteran soldier with a tendency to wisecracks. After having fought alongside Rex countless times, Boomer became one of Rex's most trusted soldiers and good friend. (wookieepedia)

Kal Skirata

Kal Skirata, born Falin Mattran—sometimes called Kal'buir (Mando'a for "Papa Kal") by the clone commandos that he trained— was a Mandalorian instructor for clone commandos in the Grand Army of the Republic. After being orphaned, he was adopted by Munin Skirata. As Skirata grew up, he became the husband of Ilippi Skirata, the biological father of Tor, Ijaat, and Ruusaan Skirata. He would also become the adopted buir of Omega Squad and the Null-class Advanced Recon Commandos. Through RC-1136 of Omega Squad, and Jedi Knight Etain Tur-Mukan, he was the adopted grandfather of Venku Skirata later renamed Kad Skirata.

Thank you gentlemen appreciate all the comments

commanderCharlie:
I used the head from the new A-Team Hannibal (Liam Neeson) figure for my Kal custom and the head from an AT-AT commander for my Walon custom figure. Not the best choice I know but it was the best that I could find in my area.

Tamer:
Me too mate. Multipacks with super articulated Delta Squad&Walon Vau and super articulated Omega Squad&Kal Skirata would be great or some other characters from the novels like Etain, Jusik, Corr etc.
I think there is a good chance to see some new RC figures in the near future 'cause Hasbro used the new sa RC body only for the evolution pack Fi Skirata figure till now.

Chritoph, Kal looks awesome. Paint work is perfect and the weathering is just the same. Nice head choice as it gives him the older look. To be sure his hair could have fallen down a bit just like the Hanibal head. Top shelf custom for sure!

Kal Skirata

Kal Skirata, born Falin Mattran—sometimes called Kal'buir (Mando'a for "Papa Kal") by the clone commandos that he trained— was a Mandalorian instructor for clone commandos in the Grand Army of the Republic. After being orphaned, he was adopted by Munin Skirata. As Skirata grew up, he became the husband of Ilippi Skirata, the biological father of Tor, Ijaat, and Ruusaan Skirata. He would also become the adopted buir of Omega Squad and the Null-class Advanced Recon Commandos. Through RC-1136 of Omega Squad, and Jedi Knight Etain Tur-Mukan, he was the adopted grandfather of Venku Skirata later renamed Kad Skirata.

Post by: Tamer on September 12, 2010, 05:40:50 AM
I must say that this is the type of trooper I expected to be driving that at-sts and at-ats on Endor, not the drivers they are showing. And even though they didn't show the Walker drivers on Endor, I do believe this would have been the type of at-at driver they would have pictured.

Christoph, needless to say I am quite enamored of this figure. I really don't see anything I would have changed. From the skull transfer to the yellow triangle on the breather to the weathering to the camo body I think it is simply seamless in application. It is truly one of your finest works yet. Ofcourse there are some folks who tell me I am crazy when it comes to these guys, but I know my at-at drivers.

Sandtrooper (squad leader)

The custom is nothing to get excited about but I've missed a sandtrooper squad leader for a couple of times. I found the new super articluated sandtrooper on Vintage card on my TRU patrol last weekend and I thought the time has come for a custom.
I used Revell sandy yellow mat (32116) for the wathering and Revell orange (32130) for the shoulder pauldron repaint.

The other Sandtroopers are all the evolution pack version which is my favorite version so far.

Post by: spudafett on September 27, 2010, 08:08:09 PM
great job on the weathering.  I agree with you that sandtroopers shouldn't be shiney and new, they should look used and wore out.  I plan on weathering my vintage trooper and dewback rider (both the same exact figs btw) and making a more realistic set of sandtroopers.

Post by: FialaFernbrugg on September 28, 2010, 08:25:03 AM
thank you so much for all your great comments gentlemen but plz note that only the squad leader is a custom. All the other figures are from the "Clone to Stormtrooper" evolution pack and they have already a perfect weathering.

spudafett: You are  right spud. A shiny Sandtrooper, that is a paradox in my opinion. I'm looking forward to see your set of custom Sandtroopers.

and

Jules: a compliment from the weathering master, that means a lot to me

Well you guys know me. I had to have an Endor AT-AT Driver after seeing his. He kindly agreed to make me one, but when I got my driver take a look at what he sent me. Needless to say I am at a loss to describe how great these are and how much I appreciate this. I just stared at the custom cardback for about a half hour. Folks hasbro couldn't have done as nice as job as this.  There are absolutely no flaws and the paintwork on these is pristine. Thanks Christoph. Ok, look at the photos. And no, I will never part with these.

I hear you. I guess my bday is tomorrow so it could have been that, but wow what a great box to open. I haven't been this pleased since I heard they were super sizing the walker.  I will have to look, but yes there was a bad part in there.  It was amazing to see all the artwork that went on with the cardback too. From the front endor driver image to the back with the great pose and the ROTJ scene with the Walker.  I will tell you it looks printed, I couldn't see how he modded it!

Woow man this is amazing, lucky you!

Yepper, I feel like going to play the lottery.  I still have a big ole smile on my face. I put both of them on display in my SW cabinet / den area so no little hands can get on em! My little girl told her momma that she didnt' get nice toys like this for her bday! I really had a good laugh on that one.

It is a BAD part in there but it is the standard HK-50 body part so nothing speacial.

Danger!! Mines!!

A land mine is usually a weight-triggered explosive device which is intended to damage its target via blast and/or fragments.
Minefields are considered a defensive or harassing weapon, used to slow the enemy down, to help deny certain terrain to the enemy, to focus enemy movement into kill zones, or to reduce morale by randomly attacking material and personnel.
Since combat engineers with mine-clearing equipment can clear a path through a minefield relatively quickly, mines are usually considered effective only if covered by fire.
As of August 2009, the Landmine Monitor identified at least 70 countries that were considered to be mine-affected. As of 2005, more than 200,000 square kilometers were suspected to be contaminated by landmines.
(wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Land_mine)

38th Armored Division, Combat Engineer Battalion

Saga 06 figure (http://www.rebelscum.com/TSC068engineer.asp)

Stationed on: Kashyyyk
Led by: Master Yoda
Assigned to: Heavy Artillery Units/ Walker Units (AT-TE, AT-AP, AT-OT etc.)
Comments: Combat engineer troopers are assigned to armored divisions with heavy artillery units such as HAVw-"Juggernaut" turbo tanks, SPHA-T mobile turbolasers, and other massive war machines. Part of the 38th Armored Division, Combat Engineer Battalion, they are sent anywhere armored ground support is needed during the Clone Wars.
CT-4022 “Able” was a member of the Combat Engineer Battalion. He lost his right forearm during a demining mission.

Merry Christmas to you.  I see you're using both Imperials and Rebels in this scene.  Very nice.  I remember hearing stories about soldiers on both sides of a war, putting down weapons and toasting or even sharing a meal at this time of year.  What an inspiration you have put together.  Perhaps 2011 will see more peace.

24th anti-spacecraft regiment

A surface-to-air missile (SAM) or ground-to-air missile (GTAM) is a missile designed to be launched from the ground to destroy aircraft. It is one type of anti-aircraft (or anti-spacecraft for Star Wars) system; in modern armed forces missiles have replaced most other forms of dedicated anti-aircraft weaponry, with the anti-aircraft cannon pushed into niche roles.
I myself was in an austrian air defence regiment during my military service as an observer for an Oerlikon 35 mm anti-aircraft cannon.

Amazing work as always.  To be entirely honest when I first glanced at the FP photo I thought it was someone in costume shooting a real launcher, that's how great this looks.   Of course the background blends almost seamlessly with your base and that adds so much realism to the figures photos.

The blast effect is amazing, I love it.  Did you use hot glue to form the missile's exhaust or something else? 

the entire figure is done expertly, I'm always impressed with your work.

Special Ops trooper (animated version)

It's been a while since I've made a custom figure.
Here is the animated version of one of my favorite Clones. The figure is a modified Rex with new paint job, new antennas and a new head. I gave him a modified DC-15s. The helmet is modified with a micro binoculars from a Commander Deviss figure.
The additional armor pieces are taken from a Mace Windu figure.
paints: blood red, gray, silver and black

I hope you like the CW SpecOps trooper.

24th anti-spacecraft regiment

A surface-to-air missile (SAM) or ground-to-air missile (GTAM) is a missile designed to be launched from the ground to destroy aircraft. It is one type of anti-aircraft (or anti-spacecraft for Star Wars) system; in modern armed forces missiles have replaced most other forms of dedicated anti-aircraft weaponry, with the anti-aircraft cannon pushed into niche roles.
I myself was in an austrian air defence regiment during my military service as an observer for an Oerlikon 35 mm anti-aircraft cannon.

clone trooper lieutenant (pilot) "Hawk"

"Hawk" was the call sign of a clone trooper lieutenant and pilot who served in the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars. An expert pilot, the trooper was named for his eyes that had the precision of a hawk bird. He saw action on many worlds during the war, including on Christophsis.
[wookieepedia: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Hawk_%28clone_trooper%29]

Not really a spectacular custom figure but I guess the chance is quite low to see a Hasbro "Hawk" in the near future. That's why I decided to make one for my CW collection. The figure itself is a modified Odd Ball.

modifications:
*elbow armor is now in the correct place
*chin hole for the old helmet design
*weathering
*and of course Hawk's markings

I hope you like it:

the background is from the "TCW CHARACTER ENCYCLOPEDIA" book

Weathering figs often gets overlooked, but this is an example of what quality details add to a figure.  
(And the paint details on his helmet aren't at all shabby either!)

This guy looks great because you've made him look "real".  Excellent work!

Clone ordnance specialist (bomb squad trooper)

Clone ordnance specialists were specialized clone troopers in the Grand Army of the Republic, trained to disarm and dispose of bombs and explosive devices. This was the most dangerous job in the army and it required a gentle touch, steady nerves and a sense of how machines work from the troopers.

Yes! Very well done - I like how the paint lines aren't 100% perfect...which they shouldn't. I'd like to think these guys apply the color to their own armor so it should appear to  be worn, imperfect and scratched up a bit.  The bomb accessory is a nice touch! great work!

BOMB SQUAD STORMTROOPER ON TATOOINE

Ordnance specialists, also known as bomb squad stormtroopers, were specialized stormtroopers in the Imperial Army, trained in ordnance disarmament and disposal.
A group of bomb squad stormtroopers was stationed on Tatooine to support the Sandtroopers in Mos Eisley. This was the most dangerous job in the army and it required a gentle touch, steady nerves and a sense of how machines work from the troopers.

Inspired by the movie "THE HURT LOCKER":

Blue Shadow Virus bomb tutorial

(http://i1222.photobucket.com/albums/dd493/FialaFernbrugg/360875-bombsquad2_super.jpg)

the bomb is pretty simple to make:
step 1 (material): you need a steel ball,  cotton bud, wire, super glue, wire cutter, scissors, cardboard, brush and paints (yellow, red and grey)
(http://i1222.photobucket.com/albums/dd493/FialaFernbrugg/DSCF6301.jpg)

step 2: cut the cotton bud (2mm long) and the wire (3mm long) into four pieces.
(http://i1222.photobucket.com/albums/dd493/FialaFernbrugg/DSCF6302.jpg)

step 3: glue the cotton bud pieces on the steel ball and after that the wire pieces into the cotton bud pieces
(http://i1222.photobucket.com/albums/dd493/FialaFernbrugg/DSCF6303.jpg)

step 4 (strut): the strut is made of cardboard
(http://i1222.photobucket.com/albums/dd493/FialaFernbrugg/DSCF6304.jpg)
(http://i1222.photobucket.com/albums/dd493/FialaFernbrugg/DSCF6305.jpg)

step 5 (paintjob): I used Revell enamel paints and a fine brush

Commander Gree
in fictional Stormtrooper armour.

I know he died in Episode III but he is one of my favorite "movie commanders" and I always wanted to have a Stormtrooper Gree in my collection.
The figure is nothing special - just a repainted Vintage Stormtrooper with custom radio unit and pouch. I used Revell and Tamiya enamel colours.
This is my first custom figure since 2011. I hope you like it.

I have to say that I am blown away by your OT style Gree.  This kicks every and all ass. 

At one point, I planned on making something like this - this style of Stormtrooper squad using the Gree pallet for reference.  I am way behind on doing that, but seeing this really gets me feeling like I need to get my tail in gear.  I realize mine would not turn out nearly this well, but they would still be fun.... just not as fun as this.

CHEWIE: I'm sure your Gree is going to be great. I can't wait to see your version of a Stromtrooper Gree.

Tamer: You are right. I would like to see more Stormtroopers with colour markings. I hope the new Rebel series will bring us some colourful Stormtroopers.

WIP Stormtrooper Commander Bacara

I decided to make a phase III version of Bacara after my fictinal phase III Commander Gree.
The helmet was pretty tricky. I had to separate the phase II helmet from the additional plating.
The figure will get a soft goods Kama.
Stormtrooper Commander Bacara should be finished soon.

Wow Christoph, I like this a lot. I also think what you have done is pretty much made an AT-DP Driver for REBELS sans those face plates.

Wish you would have these parts casted up before they all get put together. I can't even imagine the variations you could create with this. Fantastic. Off to share.

Interesting idea Shawn.
I'm not sure how a AT-DP Driver looks like but the picture I found on Google looks like a combination of McQuarrie concept Snowtrooper helmet, General Veers helmet (without snow goggles) and AT-AT Driver body (without harness).
This would be a nice custom but I have only one McQuarrie concept Snowtrooper and I don't want to destroy this rare figure.

Stormtrooper commander Bacara

After Mundi ordered his troops to push against the Separatists, Bacara received Order 66 via an encrypted channel directly from Palpatine—Order 66 effectively labeled Ki-Adi-Mundi, along with the rest of the Jedi, as traitors and enemies of the Republic. Even though he had a grudging respect for Ki-Adi-Mundi and the other Jedi, Bacara's ultimate loyalty lay with Palpatine and the Republic, and he did not hesitate when given the order from his supreme commander. As the General led the Marines in a charge against the Separatists, Bacara and the surrounding troopers stopped, raised their rifles, and gunned down the bewildered Jedi in a hail of blaster fire. Bacara was later glad that he had killed the Jedi Master, as he considered the Jedi to have been traitors for trying to overthrow the government.

Stormtrooper Commander Bly

Commander of the 327th Imperial Star Corps.

Shortly after the death of Secura, the Republic became the Galactic Empire, following Palpatine's Declaration of a New Order. Bly continued to serve under Palpatine's new regime and was sent to Yutusk to control a protest rally. While on Yutusk, Bly and fellow trooper CT-6734, nicknamed "Galle," were contacted by Lord Darth Vader, Palpatine's second-in-command. Vader reminded Bly that he still had incomplete missions on his record, then offered the commander the chance to finally complete one of them.

No I don't prime the figures. The Revell enamel paints don't need a prime in my opinion.
I clean the figure with water and dishwashing liquid to remove dirt and fat before I start to paint.
I protect the figure with clear coat when the paintwork is finished.

Very interesting. How do you cope with the issues of using enamel paints on the softer vinyl plastics, like removable helmets and arms? As far as I know, enamels won't 'stick' to that type of plastic and remain tacky, as opposed to acrylics.

I've really been enjoying your updates of these PT clone commanders to their OT stormtrooper counterparts.  Interesting in that you use enamel paints; I would not have considered going with those, but your work with them is very good (as Gree, Bacara, and Bly have shown).

Stormtrooper Commander Cody

Soon after Order 66, Palpatine's rise to power was completed with his ascension as Emperor of the first Galactic Empire. As a result of the Grand Army's reorganization into the Stormtrooper Corps, Commander Cody and the remaining clone troopers who survived the Clone Wars composed the first generation of Imperial stormtroopers. Ultimately, Cody remained in service to the New Order for years. In that time, he witnessed the rise in recruitment of birth-born Humans as enlisted troopers, which in turn led to the decline and marginalization of the original Jango Fett clones.
[wookieepedia: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/CC-2224]

Here is my Stormtrooper Commander Cody custom figure. He is my fourth Stormtrooper conversion after Gree, Bacara and Bly. Neyo will be the next to complete my conversion of all five "movie commanders" into Stormtroopers.

Stormtrooper Commander Neyo

While patrolling Saleucami's plains by twilight alongside General Allie and trooper CT-3423 on speeders, Neyo received a call through his comlink from Supreme Chancellor Palpatine to execute Order 66, a Republic contingency directive that declared the Jedi Knights to be the Republic's enemies and mandated the destruction of the Jedi Order. Following the declaration of Order 66, the Republic was reorganized into the first Galactic Empire by Palpatine, who crowned himself Galactic Emperor. Neyo retained his rank of commander in the new Imperial Army, and later filed a report to Imperial Moff Marcellin Wessel and Emperor Palpatine on the circumstances of Allie's death.

Clone trooper AT-AT pilot

AT-AT Clone Wars origin and development
AT-ATs were first designed and assembled by Kuat Drive Yards during the Clone Wars. They were evolved from the AT-TE walkers first employed in the Battle of Geonosis, as well as the AT-PT.
[wookieepedia: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/All_Terrain_Armored_Transport/Legends]

Selected from hardened combat troopers, the Heavy Armor division of the Vehicle Command Crewers, also known as AT-AT pilots, were specialized soldiers that were trained to pilot the All Terrain Armored Transport or other heavy armors.
[wookieepedie: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Imperial_Army_pilot#AT-AT_pilots]

custom materials:
*helmet: phase I clone pilot helmet + phase II clone trooper helmet
*body: phase II clone pilot
*harness: fabric stips

Love the clone at-at driver.  Only criticism would be that I'd have added the shoulder pads, but I can understand not doing that since the clone pilots don't have them.

The colors are perfect though.  I'd love to see a concept At-at or prequel version at-at to go with it.

Your little model looks to be about the same size as the concept series action fleet.  Maybe you could re-paint one of them in clone wars era deco to go with the new driver?

Rebellion Spec Ops Trooper

Hi folks. I apologise for my long absence.
Here is a new custom figure I've made with some parts that were lying around. I've always wanted to try a "Flecktarn" camo on a custom figure.
The backpack is a resin cast made by my good friend legion078.
I hope you like it.

Rex turned out really well, but that Rebel Spec Ops trooper is to die for. Amazing work!

HALO CLONETROOPER

Inspired by the great concept art mady by jubjubjedi on deviantart: http://www.deviantart.com/art/Star-Wars-Clonetrooper-concept-43871253

HALO:
High-altitude military parachuting (or military free fall (MFF)) is a method of delivering military personnel, military equipment, and other military supplies from a transport aircraft at a high altitude via free-fall parachute insertion. Two techniques are used: HALO (high altitude – low opening) and HAHO (high altitude – high opening).
In the HALO technique, the parachutist opens his parachute at a low altitude after free-falling for a period of time, while in the HAHO technique, the parachutist opens his parachute at a high altitude just a few seconds after jumping from the aircraft.

I agree with Ron! I love all the different Clone Troopers found on DeviantArt...they put their immagination into graphics and you made it reality! This is another awesome awesome Clone Trooper with so much detail...I can't stop looking at it! It's always amazing how many custom parts you find to recreate your concept!

I ran out of time to comment yesterday morning as Toy Fair was dominating, but great figure and I did get it on the front pages. Great figure. As a former member of the 82nd I loved the theme of this one. Great work Christoph!

Not that the whole thing isn't awesome, but I especially love the carbine. I know what a pain it is, kitbashing weapons on that scale.

That HALO Clone is absolutely excellent! Fantastic execution on a great concept. Amazing paint job.

Airborne Clonetrooper

Inspired by the great concept art mady by jubjubjedi on deviantart: http://www.deviantart.com/art/Star-Wars-Clonetrooper-concept-43871253

Airborne forces are military units, usually light infantry, set up to be moved by aircraft and "dropped" into battle, typically by parachute. Thus, they can be placed behind enemy lines, and have the capability to deploy almost anywhere with little warning. The formations are limited only by the number and size of their aircraft, so given enough capacity a huge force can appear "out of nowhere" in minutes, an action referred to as vertical envelopment. [wikipedia]

My special thanks goes to my good friend Philipp (Legion078) for the incredibly good resin cast phase II clonetrooper helmet.

Christoph,

over the years we've been talking a lot about the concept illustrations of Clone Troopers found on DeviantArt and I really enjoy how you turn them into Action Figures!
The paint job looks suberb! I didn't expect that this simple resin cast would look that great once it's  painted!

Much respect for yet another premium custom Clone Trooper! I like it a lot!
By the way which Jetpack did you use?
