I just watched the latest episode of the clone wars with a republic commando - Captain Gregor. I have noticed an unusual armor colour which seems like a mix of camouflage and weathering.. not sure what it is actually...

http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20130104134802/starwars/images/2/28/Gregor.png

instead of plain white armor with grey weathering/dust you can see some rectangles and squares around the whole armor. I was wondering.. what are they?

And what do you think about that commando? Smile

i also noticed the "square-ness" of his weathering, which made me think that it was part of the paint, not just dust.. it WAS a dusty planet, after all.

I know nothing of weathering, but it could very well be paint as it looks like the camo pattern used by some of the ARF troopers

Definitely looks like "digital" camo with the yellow painted over it and then weathered.

Yep. Waxer and Boil had a similar 'blocky' scheme to their armor on the Second Battle of Geonosis. It looks awesome!

WOW!! I didn't notice that during the episode, but it looks cool!! I agree with all of the assessments, it looks to be part of the paint job. There is no way dist could form like that.

Good find, Kira!

Here's a close-up of the helmet detail. The weathering/shading of the armor is the same as the regular animated clones, but it still has the blocky camo design.

Looks awesome. I was following a build over on CTD. It's a tough paint job to do.

I really love meandering about the 'net and running into your pic, Alex. I really, really, really love your Gregor.
