Evolution of the Clone Commanders (Part IV)

As you may have guessed from the last few posts, the next figure in my ongoing Evolution of the Clone Commanders series is Commander Fordo (ARC-77). I have no idea what happened to Fordo after the end of the Clone Wars, but assuming that he survived to the end of the conflict, I think it is likely that the Empire would continue to capitalize on the unique and highly specialized skills of Fordo and the other surviving Advanced Reconnaissance Commandos. We know that the Empire eventually developed Storm Commandos, an elite branch of the Imperial Stormtrooper Corps known for their blackened Scout armor and specially trained for counter-insurgency missions, siege breaking, and sabotage. I think it reasonable to surmise that at least some of the ARC Troopers may have been the beginnings of what eventually became the Storm Commandos...


  1. amazing job with all the clones commanders you have post lately.

  2. I always love your stuff! Keep it up! I'd love to see some Republic Commando figs (or What If? figs too).

  3. Thanks, guys!

    Boss, I've got three un-painted Scorch figures that are going to be customized at some point. Just waiting for the right idea to hit me...

  4. "Hi:

    Two things

    1) I’d like your permission to (re)print your article on The Clone Wars for our website

    2) I was hoping we could use your ‘scribing’ talent for our website.

    The Best Shows Youre Not Watching (dot) com [all one word]

    The Clone Wars is one of our featured shows. We’re hoping to round up a few people who can occasionally contribute perspective (via an article/blog) on the shows – maybe a recent episode, future direction, plot shortcomings etc.

    What’s in it for you?
    Primarily a larger audience back channeled to your blog. We don’t pay but the site has a lot of promise and we're pretty excited about getting it off the ground. Let me know what you think.


  5. TbsYnw,

    You're certainly welcome to borrow anything I've posted here as long as you credit the original creators (it isn't always me). I will have to check out your site when I get a few minutes. MTFBWY.
