For the Clone Trooper version I wanted a completely different look from the Gladiator version, I did struggle with the idea of not having the torn flags and cloth as I really liked the idea of it.  I essentially went with my reference of a Clone Trooper which did not have any ragged cloth at all.  I knew I wanted to achieve a battle worn armor look as well to this versions armor as it only seemed fitting.  For this I decided to use a technique I had learned from a tutorial a friend of mine had made that is very cool and simple to use.  Which can be found here :-

I also wanted to steer away from the armor look on some elements of this characters costume such as the arm wraps as I felt they could easily be a white leather of some kind, being Star Wars based anything is possible. =) This was the easiest of the textures, I found a simple diamond pattern and applied it to the bump and spec channels to give it some depth after that I simply used basic layer procedurals such as Turbulence to dirty it up all over which I then applied to other elements of the model.
