I love the effects of the flying Gunship.  Awesome start!!

I've been thinking about trying a photonovel to give some of my customs a "purpose"  Anyway, I've got an idea involving the a side story of Darth Plageous, Darth Sidious and the "Phantom Menace"  We'll see if this goes anywhere but here is a preview pic.  Be kind its my first attempt at photoshop special effects :)

Hemble - thanks for the kind words.  Everytime I look at the Jawa I can't help but smile.  I'm still not sure he's believable as a Sith but he was fun none-the-less.

Errex - I used Citadel Paints - it is the "Blood Red" color

Greg - your Sith Jawa inspired me :)

As far as the Bandolier goes, I think I may try to piece together another portion of a tusken raider.  I'll post an update when I get it.

....... in the meantime, I've been mulling around a Photonovel idea.  I've put a preview pic in the photonovel thread.

Fritz - Another great round of deadites.  You've got to be running out of these guys?!?!?!

2555
That explains it a bit better.  So for the MCC (whether verus FFURG or just ourselves) does anyone actually declare a winner :)

Chewie,
Its been far to long since I commented on your customs, so here we go:

Valorum - I think he's great.  I'll echo what Alderaan said and I think the painting updates you did on him really make him look ragged and aged.  I hope that was what you were going for!

Rykrof - I'm digging the Lobot sleeves!  He definitely has a Naboo aristocratic look.  I like how you combine some many various parts to create a unique look.   By the way, how many freakin' Endor Saga Rebel heads do you have?!?!?!?

Teem - Ever since I made my Ron Corobb, I'm a sucked for Ithorians.  He looks great!  I actually really like that Mas Amedda body for figures like this.

Jarton - I really like this combination of head and body.  I like the slouched look that he gets - I really think it works. I also really like the dark highlights (is that a contradiction?) on the scales.

Hoth troopers - I picked up several extra Clif Clavens to do something very similar.  Too bad there isn't more variety for those heads to give these guys more distinction.

Keep it up!!

I was kind of hoping that we'd settled on Aliens.  Even though the new challenge hasn't technical begun, I started making some custom heads from sculpy last night.  I'm going to try casting them into plastic and make a few aliens.

I think we did settle on Aliens for Month 11 (March) and Imperial Troops for Month 12 (April).

I think Phruby and Ennis are talking about the next "Group Project" FFURG v. JD (like the Clone Wars that is going on now...



Okay, it must be a newbie thing... I can't figure the difference between the group project and the Monthly challenge.  Can someone explain please  ::)

AS far as casting goes I wish I could, but i hav neither the talent or the facilities. I'd love to be able to cast stuff like he has. I waould save a small fortune  in JLU parts alone. If Glassman could make a how to thread Id be more than willing to give it a thorough read. Id love to know how the magic works. ;D


I've been trading a lot of PMs with Glassman on custom casting.  I've got a new set of supplies and I'm going to try to make some custom molds of a few items I've been putting together.  I'll try to document the whole process with some photos and start to build a "Newbie tries to Cast Parts" thread.  Then the experts can critique and add suggestions.

OK guys, would you believe a tree Just fell on our house?  I was typing and heard  rumbleing...My wife came running and i knew immediatly a tree fel.l It  scraped the side of our house.  D@MN!!!! Now i gotta replace siding. Lots of it.

And now i gotta remove 2 trees....  One fell during a snow storm last week, but just in the yard.


Not to make light of this situation, but you could always cast some new siding! 

However, in all seriousness, that sucks.  Will your homeowner's insurance cover the replacement costs?  We had siding replaced after a huge hailstorm at it was covered.  I'm not sure if trees are in the same boat.

2561
The other idea is one a friend and I were throwing around at a customizing party.
2.  Pimp My Gonk

With the new Gonks, it would be fun to see what different types of Gonks we could come up with.  (plus I love the droid  ;D )


Now I think that would be a fun project!!

2562
I do like the writing better on the armor.

2563
That is very true... I wonder what he ends up doing with Mas Amedda after ROTS?  I think that he could be a lifetime advisor to Palpatine.  Amedda is one character that really seems to be overlooked as a possible important character in what transpires.  He could have at the time of Valorum's fall from grace changed things to keep Palpatine out of power perhaps, but saw the momentum and possiblity for greater power with Palpatine. 

 :P

Come on Chewie, I've already told you what Mas Amedda does after ROTS.  He cover's KISS:

What are?

aurebesh numbers
CIS
GAR

and BTW, if you are not familiar with a Rolling Thunder, that rear gangplank was carved by hand.

I can help with one for sure:
GAR = Grand Army of the Republic

I can't think of CIS but I believe it is the acronym for the Separatists.

Is aurebesh a Mandalorian thing?

2565
I think I'd prefer Alien species.  However, I'm pretty flexible. 

Since I'm (relatively) new here.  Have Jedi already been done to death?  I've got a Jedi character (or two) that I'm thinking about working on and it would be nice to kill two birds with one stone :)
