Yes, an awesome book.  I'm hoping Karen writes another book so we'll finally know if Kal and the rest of the Null ARC's succeed in finding a way to keep them all from aging rapidly.  That would be awesome.  And Lord knows those guy's deserve better, you know? 

And I agree with the Order 66.  I think it's safe to say the Null ARC's will tell their superiors where to stick it, but it'll be interesting to see how the Commando's handle it.  Especially if it comes down to Omega not carrying out their orders, because of the female Jedi, and Delta Squad being a little more strict when it comes to following orders.  I know there was some story about Vader killing a group of Commando's, because they refused to kill their Jedi General.  I think it's in the book "The Rise of Darth Vader."  I'll have to wait until my wife can ship that to me out here, so I can read it.

Have you ever thought about doing members of Delta sqaud?

I have... but the commando armor is different from the others, I need to do some research. Maybe I will get more inspiration from Triple Zero and would try to illustrate certain scenes (without giving out too much about the story!), because now I need more than just characters to start drawing...

If I might make a suggestion that would go over great with lots of fans.  Heck, I think Karen Traviss would even be tickled by it.  If you ever read Triple Zero, I think the coolest pic you could ever do from the book, would be from the end of the book, where the one Clone Trooper says he wished he could take a picture of them all.  It was when they were all suited up for the mission.  The Commando's were in their armor (Delta in their regular armor and Omega in their black Stealth armor).  Kal Skirata was in his sandy Mando armor and Walon Vau was in his black Mando armor.  Then you had the regular clone trooper that was with them.  The one young Jedi boy, who was also in Mando armor, and the young Jedi girl, who had Clone trooper armor on under her robes (much like Obi-Wan in the Clone Wars cartoon, I imagine).  Ordo, with his red ARC Trooper armor, and Mereel in his blue ARC Trooper armor. 

That would look totally sweet, I think.

Daenna,

I really loved this pic you put on here.


Mandalorian warrior, at first it was just a study for the armor but it turned out cool enough tongue

Before I had to move and put all my model stuff into storage for eight months, I was going to make a 12" figure of what kind of Mandolorian Costume I would make, if I ever had the gumption to make one.  One of the big things was that it was a mesh between that of ARC Trooper and Mandalorian armor.

It would have a Mandalorian helmet, of course.  Black Republic Commando body suit, because they're air sealed for short trips in a vacuum.  Mandalorian body vest (front plate, back plate, & shoulder bells), Mandalorian wrist gauntlets, Mandalorian Knee pads, and Mandalorian midsection armor (cod piece and butt armor).  The Clone Trooper armor parts would be thigh leg armor, shin leg armor, boots, upper arm armor, elbow pads, gloves, and the piece of armor that goes on top of the glove.  There would also be a black Kama, with the same double pistols and holders that the Clone Troopers use.  The actual vest material would be flat gray and the armor pieces that attach to the vest would be a darker gray, as well as the rest of the armor.  All of it would be dark gray.  The helmet would have a red "T" and have Jaig Eyes painted on the top.  I would have the figure with a DC-17 rifle (the one's used by the Republic Commando's), simply because of it's simplicity and multi-functional use.

This pic you had there is the closest I've seen to what it would actually look like.  I know it has the Mandalorian leg and shin armor, but it's still close enough.  Awesome stuff.  Thanks for giving me a better visual of what it supposed to look like. 

Awesome pics you have there.

If you want something cheaper, you're better off getting some Resin prop replica's from someone on eBay.

I don't think Master Replica's has any more of the Jango blasters, however, they are making some EE-3 blaster for sale this Fall.

I think TRUE WARRIOR was talking about BOBA DUDE's comment posted on March 7th, with the Skyhobber thing.

It kind of looks like the the Han version and Boba version of the box are part of one bigger poster.

Sadriel_Fett, Is your avatar an acual helmet?
Is it yours?
It looks really nice

It's a pic of one of the prototype Boba Fett helmets.  The original version had Jaig eyes painted on the top of the helmet.  I think those look so much better.  There were several variations proposed in original sketches with stuff on his helmet.  A couple you actually see on the Clone Wars cartoon series.  Commander Fordo has Jaig Eyes on his helmet while defending Coruscant.

http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Jaig_eyes


One of the ARC Trooper pilot has one of the symbols that was originally on one of the Fett helmet sketches.  I thought that was a nice tip of the hat to the original artists, and a neat little Easter Egg for us Fandolorians. 

ARC Pilot:

Has the same symbol as the helmet on the bottom middle of this pic:

I was kind of disappointed with Overkill.  Didn't seem to have much of a story to it.  Most of the Fett stories I've really liked where all in the Star Wars Tales comics, except for Twin Engines of Destruction.

Funny you should mention him.  I just found this by accident today on the Wookieepedia site.  Never knew any of this before.

ARC Fett wrote:

does anybody like Manaan?

The only reason I love Manaan is because there is a glitch in the system, so you can get duplicates of your equipment.  So, now all my peeps have Cassus Fett's armor.  hee hee




*Duplicate items in Manaan

      1. Go to the submersible in Manaan. Equip your two other party members with the items to be duplicated.

      2. Go down to the underwater base. Go to any airlock.

      3. Unequip all of the equipment from your other two characters.

      4. Go through the airlock and come back in.

      5. Your other two characters will have "respawned" with what they were wearing when they came down to the base, thus leaving you with one set of their equipment in inventory and another equipped to them.

      6. Repeat steps 3 and 4 as many times as desired.

Note: Sometimes they do not respawn with the equipment. If this happens, re-equip all the items, then go through the airlock and come back inside. That should fix it.

Also, instead of doing the "do not respawn fix", you can just put the items you want duplicated on again, then save the game. Then, continue with steps 3 and 4. This way, you can duplicate other items than just the ones your other two characters were wearing when they came down to the base. You save time by not having to go out the airlock to reset the respawn.

I didn't know we had a costume gallery on the site.  What's the link for it?

I was wondering if anyone's seen the box art for the Star Wars Customizable Miniature Games: Bounty Hunters Expansion pack?  It has a picture of a Mandalorian driving one of the Mando Basilisk War Droids.  Very nice art.

The only other time I've seen one is in the top right of this art pic.

Dude, time to watch the new Battlestar Galactica from Sci-Fi. That is hands down the best show on TV right now. So great. Rent the DVDs.

I agree, this is an awesome show.  Kind of reminds me a lot of Space: Above and Beyond.  I had been hoping they would come out with some soundtracks for the show and finally found out that "Season 2" soundtrack is being released next week?  I was like, where the heck did the other one's go?   I guess they already had two other CD's out for it already.  One for the pilot and another for the first season.  It sucks being in the middle of nowhere.  Can never find anything you're looking for.  Thank God for Amazon.com

Congrats Sadriel Fett!This covers a lot of points.I think these pictures are from the videogame StarWars Bounty Hunter.Or am I wrong?

No, all those pics were from the comic book "Star Wars: Jango Fett--Open Seasons" by Dark Horse Comics.  However, I think I know what you're thinking.  If you played the Bounty Hunter game, there was unlockable content.  One of those was for every level you beat, it unlocks a page from this comic book mini-series.  It didn't have the whole mini-series, though, in the Bounty Hunter game.  I think it only had the first of the four issue series.
