The Skirmish II by CorranFett The Skirmish II by CorranFett
Mandalorian supercommandos, among them star sniper Ram Zerimar, engaged in a fierce battle in the Yuuzhan Vong War.

In the background, you can see two Vong-bred plasma eels exploding (blue).


Despite the fact that it's looking more like a still from a movie, it is not. Just some fun photomanip I've done for ll Mando fans out there, partly as a gift to the DSG Mando members and Ray Ramirez.

Unlike my other Mando images, this has nothing to do with my fanfiction, although Ram Zerimar, Ray's character, does have a few cameos in my Rage of the Shadow Warriors.

The Mandalorians (save from Ray/Ram Zerimar, second to the right) are from the Arizona Dune Sea Garrison of the 501st. You can see James "Mars Bar", Lance "Beviin", Ray and Bill "Ve'vut Beskar" (left to right) in their awesome Mando costumes there. Check here and here for more on them.

What's so incredibly awesome about the Mandalorians is that they don't have to be Force-sensitive in order to be badass characters. Too often, Star Wars literature puts too much emphasis on Jedi/Sith characters and makes the rest of us "common" people feel pretty useless to the story.


Let's be honest, though. Being a Force-sensitive Mando would be doubly awesome.

this could be straight out of an NJO film.

Which makes me very, very happy.

MORE PLEASE

Yeah, that was the idea. Thus also the widescreen format. :D

It would be uber-awesome to see my Mando vs. Vong stories converted into film, so this is just my way of expressing that wishful thinking. ;P

Not sure if there will be more, when I find good source-pics and have the proper inspiration, maybe.

Did you hear Boba Fett's supposed to be an important part of the upcoming live action TV series? Not a Mando movie by any means, but it's something!

Yeah, that'd kick quite some ass, a Mando action movie. :horns: :drools:

I've actually loved reading a bit more about the Mandalorian fighters in the new novels, about how they managed (when an entire galactic military could not) to fight off the YV during that conflict... What a great image this is of one of those epic (would have to be epic, wouldn't it? ;) ) battles! :clap: Great work combining the elements (your manips never really look like manips, my friend, but real images! ;) ), adding the blaster flares--the eels (shudders)--all of it! Wonderful work!

Actually, the Mandos started in the war as allies to the Vong, what was a great thing so to say, because they could observe their "ally"'s tactics and behaviour in combat like no other, and once the Vong turned against them, they used that advantage and sure kicked their ugly scarred a$$es.^^

Thanks for the comment, I'm glad you like it. :D

You guys should read the Republic Commando novels. They are sweet. Lots of bad-ass Mando-ade goodness.

Yeah, that's James. He probably liked that about the Clones, so he decided to go with it on his Mando as well.
