I was referring to the hilarious comments you received from the chaps on Facebook regarding swapping the bases.
(And the funny little world that they must live in, where no-one is allowed to 'change' anything...)

Excellent work both on the conversions and the paintjobs!

The vibrosword pic from the Star Wars wiki looks like GW Ork swords might actually work, too. If I remember correctly, there was a similar spare sword on the boyz sprues. Will have to take a look at home.

I believe that's been semi-settled by the email questions FFG has done, many of which have the questions and answers posted on the FFG boards.

Their answer was pretty much that as long as it isn't a change in size for the base, it's allowed. They aren't supposed to be thinner either, but can have things on top of it.

Legion - Clone Wars
Soon after the arrival of Legion some back market models appeared, first scenery, then head swap conversion parts and finally full models.
I was pleased to see that Mel (see my X-Wing models) is also doing some very good Clone Trooper!

So time to paint some!

From left to right, Phase II CT with DC-15S blaster carbine, ARC Trooper (maybe Rex?) and Phase II CT with DC-15A Blaster Rifle. So models are of good quality (the sculpts are in fact flawless), but some print lines appear and need to be carefully removed wherever possible. They are painted in the colours of Rex’s 501st Legion.

The always welcome comparison picture:

From left to right, FFG Legion Trooper, Phase II CT with DC-15A Blaster Rifle ARC Trooper and FFG Heavy Trooper.

As you can see the Mel CTs are more realistic proportioned, while FFG has the chunky “heroic” scale GW look. Both are nice models by themselves!
I am planning to paint 2 or 3 Clone squads and some corresponding lists for my Victory Decision Future Combat system.

After the big CW annoucement yesterday I am even more hyped to paint some CW minis.


All Clones from Mel, Yoda is an old bendy WotC mini.


Three ARC Trooper of the 501st Legion. One with Z-6 Rotary Blaster Cannon, one DC-15S Blaster and DC-15A Blaster Sniper Rifle.

Mel also started to produce Jedi to lead the clones! Obi Wan Kenobi is the 1st.


A very good mini with also very little printlines!

And the always productive Mel also offers Droids and the infamous General Grievous!

As you can see two of the 4 sabers are missing the brittle Shapeway material simply broke away and the saber itself was too tiny to replace the blade. Anyway I received a full refund and the model still looks cool IMO.

Are the clone troopers Legion or Imperial Assault sized?

Long wanted to do clone wars, but not if it's Legion sized, as they would tower over all my other figures :(

Two more Clones!


The ARC Trooper are now pretty complete.

Four ARC Trooper of the 501st Legion. One with DC-15S Blaster, DC-15A Blaster Sniper Rifle, Z-6 Rotary Blaster Cannon and one Trooper aims with his RPS-6 Rocket Launcher.

The good thing with all the Legion hype is that the aftermarket is also booming.
Several terrain kits popped up, one of my favourites are the Tatooine buildings in hard foam from Micro Art Studio.

Luke and two Trooper (Imperial Assault) are getting into it in front of the “Desert Habitat” - right out of Ep. IV!

Even for Legion that looks massive  :?

You’ve done a nice job on it though along with the figures  8)
