    Here's a Clone Wars battlefield I whipped up yesterday for fun. There's 18 pictures total which can be viewed here:

    The ground is a perfectly patterned piece of material I found at the goodwill. I think it was a shower curtain or some home-made curtains.

    It consists of:
    27 Clones
    6 Jedi
    17 Battle Droids
    3 tanks
    1 gunship
    2 speederbikes
    1 bounty hunter


    For those wondering....some of those clones are the bootleg japanese clones that appeared shortly after AOTC opened.

    Nice. You should do a stop-motion movie with it now :p
    If you do it I'll do the sound fx track :D

    @Sify-Dyas Thanks! I'd love to try my hand at stop-motion sometime....but I think I'll make my start with something a little less complex.....like...one figure. :p Not to mention....I don't think my computer is up to the challenge. (BTW...does anyone know any good software for animating images...preferably for free?)


    @Ryan Muchas gracias.......it didn't take me long...no more than an hour.....and most of that was taking clear stands off of other figures so I could use them to stand these guys up. :D

    The whole scene is set up on a double-size bed...the same bed that has played host to the Battle of Hoth and numerous incarnations of an Old Republic Starship Hangar (loaded with clones, gunships, and starfighters).

    Next up I might try my hand at a simple Endor dio. Mind you, all the dios on the bed amount to a piece of fabric and a bunch of toys...so that the bed can still be used if I ever have guests. :p

    Ya that would be some stop-motion project, that was my joke.. ;)

    Do you mean a free program that can make an animated .gif file out of a series of images/jpegs? I just heard about one of those recently and I can try to look up where I saw that, if that's what you mean.

    Looks great Skel, plus lots of fun to do. Wish I had that kind of free time....

    Ok, I'm on it. Can't seem to find the same info I saw recently, but I have some friends in the know that I've asked and started a thread about it where I saw the other info.
    I'm sure I'll have some program names for you, just give it a few days...

    I'm interested in having an app for that as well and giving it a try myself .

    Hmmm ... I could be wrong, but I don't recall seeing any hillsides with giant power sockets on them ... then again they would have to have somewhere to re-charge all those droids. ;)

    Some people just can't recognize an exhaust port when they see one :p

    Do you have a webcam? My logitech one has a stopmotion feature, so i thought maybe other brands do that too.

    Well you would be exhausted after recharging all those droids, so it could well be "any old port in a storm". ;)

    Its still so important to know the difference between a power socket and a computer terminal :p

    F.Y.I. Update:

    I just today (finally) got 3 different GIF animator apps sent to me by a friend.
    I'll be checking them out over the next few days and report back here with which is good /newb user friendly etc............
