Glassman..... WOW.  Those look amazing so far.  Can't wait to see the finished product.  Do you do all your work on cast parts now?  It doesn't seem like you ever paint over a hasbro part.  What (if any) benefit does this bring?

I love the droids.  Keep it up.  I like that fact that you don't just make one custom, you make an army all at once ;)

Thanks for the comments everyone.  I agree about the chest bandoliers.  I need to find some way to connect them together.  I'll looks through my bits and pieces and see what I can come up with.  I may have to resort to some sort of rubber bands.

Chewie, yes this is one of the Saga Tuskens I got from you (for the base).  I cut the bandoliers from a POTF figure that I got from another trade.  The silver "crown" was made from pieces of an Obi-Wan Pilot headpiece.

For the Jawa, I think he's funny.  I'm envisioning that the breather may actually be a "translater" so that we does just say "Uttini!"   

I'm off for a few days.  I hope that I can provide another update sometime next week.  Have a great weekend everyone!!

I agree, those lines look great!  The blue looks good too.  Did you mix it yourself?

Actually, I just used Citadel's Ultramarine Blue.



Interesting I used the Enchanted Blue on my 501st. 

Your trooper looks very good - I think the masking was outstanding!!

Chewie,
I can't keep up with all your updates!  I like the ewok ambush.  Its a good use of ewoks and deadites :)

I think the Seppies bunker looks great.  I wish I had more vehicles/playset pieces so that I could do stuff like that.  I'm really worried that if I dive into a photonovel I won't have enough "background" pieces.

Freelo looks good.  I haven't been able to go back and read all the Rykrof stories yet so I'm still trying to figure what this guy is all about.  It looks like a good blend of parts.

Well, I've got a vacation day tomorrow so I stayed up late tonight to finish up one custom and start another.

I finished up the Sith Jawa.  I took some advice for the WIP and added some "technology" to the face mask.  I also added a small custom soft goods cape.  I repainted the face and added some silver drybrushing.




As some of you are aware, I've been trading for a number of Tusken raiders recently.  These are planned for an upcoming project.  Here is a preview character - a Tusken War Chief (yet to be named).  I'm very pleased with how he turned out.  Let me know what you think.






I'm planning on trying my hand at a Photonovel (or at least a "photonovelette") with both of these characters making some sort of appearance.

Phruby,
I give you props on this figure.  Although I'm still not a fan of all the exposed joints I think this figure looks great.  I agree with others that the hands are probably too big.  However, it sounds like that can be rectified.  I'm looking forward to your Aayla and Quinlan!

Very cool. I especially like the second picture. She is the best one of the sqad. Its a good change from the dead soldiers you've been making. I like them alot. What parts did you use?
Wow, she is smokin'!!  What figure did you use for the base of that one.  I'd expect to see her in Ryan's strip club not in a TIE fighter.  Well done!!

Just completed a trade with Chewie - as expected NO PROBLEMS.  Trade with confidence with our wookie-customizing machine!

I'd be afraid to give one of my customs to my 7 year old son.  I've seen the way he plays with these toys :)

That braid comes on the version of Obi-Wan that Chewie used.


Let me re-phrase then.... which Obi-Wan is that head from?

2563
Chewie, This is a great update!  I really like the improvements on the astromech.  He doesn't seem as out of place.

Obi-wan looks great.  Where did you get that braid?  It looks really good on him.

The scorpion droid is also a good combination of parts (giblets or whatever you call them).  I wonder how durable those would be for the Sepratists.

The painting on the vehicles looks amazing.

Keep it up!

I'm happy with the paint color I mixed up. I just need to finish sanding down the bust. I'm still looking for a nice piece of fabric for the robes. I need to go to the fabric store and look around. I wonder if they have swatch samples. Its not like I need a yard of red fabric.

I've purchased as little as 6" of cloth and it only costs a couple of bucks (usually less than $2)

I want to echo everyone's comments on Captain Fordo.  He looks great.   The paint job is very well done. You definitely should get some casts made from those helmets.
