Inspired by KapnKeg's original clone model, Kalos has created skins of the Republic Commandos, who were featured in the game Star Wars: Republic Commando. A lively lot of usually four, they were the elite soldiers of the Army of the Republic who were often assigned on covert operations too dangerous for just the average Jango Schmoe clone.
The original model restricts this skin from being able to look exactly as it should. The original was based on a stormtrooper, and since the stormtroopers have the more simple back armor, this skin does not have the same Katarn-class commando armor that clone commandos usually wear. However, the aspects that can be accurate are highly accurate, my favorite being the glowing visor and the shaders used to make these guys look the same way that they do in pictures of them. The shaders give them a certain gooey, computer graphic–like shine to them, as if they're the actual computer generated images that you see in the movie. It looks great.
They have also been dirtied up to a certain extent to make these skins very accurate; I highly recommend them for Republic Commando fans. Previous clone models have mostly been missing this essential texturing that gives them that extra vibe of realism, which is why I plan to keep these skins because older ones just look too clean, polished, and … milky. Perhaps someone will see how well you did with these skins and will make you a better model to use for them, because in that case, I would love them.
In the past, clone models and skins were just that—boring clones—but Kalos knows how to deliver something more than what their name suggests. Very well done, sir, but do try and add bot support and NPC support next time—I still haven't reviewed a single four star (10/10) file in my time here; you almost made my day.
