  1. Has anyone gotten in contact with LucasFilm about getting copies of the animation assets of characters so that a CRL can be written?
  2. So for about a week now I have been working on the CRL’s for the Mandalorian Super Commando Grunts, both the Vertical and Diagonal hand print versions. Now my personal belief is that the the Deathwatch Mandalorians have been misplaced in the Detachment they are currently assigned. Only Jango and Boba are bounty hunters and them being in BHG is appropriate. Yet the Clone Wars Mandalorians were grouped into BHG as well even though it was never stated that they were bounty hunters or not. Now since these characters are featured in the Clone Wars animated show they could be grouped into Flagship Eclipse because they are a canon character from an “Expanded Universe” source. Now I’m not saying that the character who are already assigned to BHG are to be moved but going forward the newly approved Mandalorians whether it be the Deathwatch Super Commandos or the imperial super commandos be placed in Flagship Eclipse. Since the characters I have been working on the CRL’s for have no posted CRL it could be easily done. Now just in case this doesn’t go further in the Detachment switch I am posting these CRL’s to both the Bounty Hunters Guild and Flagship Eclipse Detachment forums. I am working on one of the costumes of the characters I have written the CRL (Diagonal hand print). Of course these will not be set in stone at first and will be up for review and revisions. Also who knows if there are any more people who have this costume so that there will be a visual reference or will the CRL list be a yellow tag with just the text waiting for a visual reference. I hope these will pass the muster for 501st standards. Mandalorian Super Commando Grunt Diagonal Handprint • Helmet ◦ An animated Deathwatch style helmet must be used. ◦ The dome, face, and back is painted metallic grey, light grey or silver. The mandibles, key slot indentation, and band are painted red.

The handprint is painted black with drip marks running down from it. ◦ The helmet should have the narrower design with the longer face and the T should come to points at the ends. ◦ The visor should be dark in color to obscure the wearers face. ◦ There are no diamonds on the forehead of the helmet. ◦ The right earcap must match the left. ◦ As with the Clone Wars season 2 Death Watch grunt there is no RF for the Season 4 Death Watch Grunts. • Shoulder Plates ◦ Must be Animated Death Watch style armor. ◦ Must appear to be at least 3mm thick with rounded edges in order to give the feeling of thickness and depth.

    Darth Bane

    If you go to the Clone Wars section of Starwars.com, go to the Lost Missions episode section, find the one with toad and the whils that episode has Darth Bane in it. Remember he was voiced by Mark Hamil himself. If you go to the concept art section there is the 360 model of the Darth Bane there. I have it copied but it's on my computer at home and I am on my phone currently. If it's not posted here by the time I get how I'll post it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
