Clones unit organisation i.e. how many li

Recommended Posts

To start off, I really like my phase 1 clones to be painted as in the film i.e. with clean armour and no personalisation whatsoever. In the movie we see 4 special rank markings and we can learn some information about unit organisation from Wookiepedia (https://starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Grand_Army_of_the_Republic).

Basically I am trying to make most sane 6 squads of clones which follow army organisation, sport as many different ranks as possible and are fully playable in "legit" configurations. My assumptions are:

My assumptions in painting will be:

  1. Highest rank clone in the unit has to count as unit leader.
  2. 6-men squads from the game can very well proxy 10-men squad from GAR organisation scheme. This allows for 6 Sergeants.
    1. Each unit has to have Sergeant.
  3. 6 units possible to fit in Legion army will represent 2 platoons which allow for 2 Lieutenants.
  4. It is very possible that our particular chunk of larger force is led by higher ranking individuals which allows for 1 Captain.
    1. Captain is an actual upgrade in the game, so I settle for 1 Captain-painted Clone Captain and the rest painted as lower level leaders.
    2. Captain technically collides with Captain Rex presence but I will let this slip ;)
  5. As per point 4., one might like to include 1 Commander but I don't think I am going that far.

This will be resulting army organisation:

  • Unit leader miniatures painting: 4 Sergeants and 2 Lieutenants.
  • Z-6 and DC-15 painting: only 1 Sergeant Z6 and 1 Sergeant DC15.
    • The above go to 1st Lieutenant squad.
  • Clone specialist painting: 1st can be Sergeant
    • The above go to 2nd Lieutenant squad.
    • Also one regular guy will be painted as Sergeant.
    • 2nd and all next Clone Specialists need to be regular guys.
  • DP-23 and RPS-6 painting:
    • 1st pair needs to be regular to go with our Sergeant specialist in 1st Lieutenant squad if needed.
    • 2nd pair can have 1 Sergeant - choose freely which one. This allows to put Sergeant painted in 1st Lieutenant squad and other in regular Sergeant squad, so both can be used at the same time.
    • 3rd and all other need to be regular guys.
  • Clone Captain painting:
    • 1st Clone Captain can be Captain. He goes in whichever squad. Simply use Sergeant and possibly Lieutenant from this squad as regular guy.
    • 1 Clone Captain can be Commander if you wish and function in the same way as Captain.
    • 2 Clone Captains can be Lieutenants. If used, add them to Lieutenant squads and don't use unit leader miniature.
    • All leftover Clone Captains can be Sergeants and be used in the same was as above.
  • Regular troopers painting: paint 1 as Sergeant. The rest are regular.
    • Sergeant will go to 2nd Lieutenant squad as personnel. 

The above pattern lets you have "legit" clone army in all army compositions I can think of. Please let me know what you think about this approach to paining an army and use it freely :)

Also show here your movie-like phase 1 clones! :)

I painted my phase 1 clones to follow the Attack of the Clones rank scheme, too (except for Rex, we only ever see him with customization), though so far I've only done troopers and Sergeants. I'm waiting for the upgrade expansion to come out so I can paint the Captain as a Captain. And I'm trying to decide whether the generic Clone Officer we're certain to eventually get should be painted as a Lieutenant or a Commander.

Lieutenant commands up to 4 units, so in skirmish environment it makes all the sense :)

In normal games I would go for commander so he outranks captain added to units, but that is my opinion only ;)

Do you have your units painted already? I’d love to see them :)

Yep! I posted them in a thread in the Painting subforum.

Haven't posted there since putting Rex up, but I'll be coming back to it once more Republic models come out.
