I love both of your new additions.  One the "Lost in Space" pilot, I think maybe he should have lost one of his boots.  His bottom half almost looks too symmetrcial.  However, that is minor.  A fine addition to the dead trooper series!

I've used Intervideo WinDVD to do screen captures but they are not as high resolution as the ones you've showed.

I would cast it before I hollow it out.  Off the top of my head (no pun intended), I'm not sure how to caste a part that is "hollow" per se.

Good idea.  I've got a bunch of those Michael's bottles left over from another project I was working on.  They don't work well on figures but foamcore... yes maybe.  Thanks!

Chewie, thanks for the advice.  What paints do you use on your foamcore dioramas?  Those little jars of Gamesworkshop paints don't go very far on big sheets :)

DD, the durge looks great!  I just took at look at the base figure (a friend has it in his office, hehehe).  Your paint job additions are great.  What a transformation!

I think your Galactic Marine head sculpt it great!  Are the legs supposed to be maroon?  Obviously as a colorblinder, take that last comment with a grain of salt  ;)  However, I thought they were supposed to be maroon.

Do most people spray paint onto the foam core or paint by hand with the acrylics we use on our figures?

Chewie, I love the look of your backdrop diorama as you have it photographed.  It looks great!  I need to make a backdrop to help set my customs off a little more.  Time to get the creative juices flowing.

Maul looks great.   The tatoos came out very very well.   Did you consider adding the Grevious style legs to him to give him the look of the EU version that can be seen in the Star Wars Visionaries book?

Thought I'd post this newbie question to go along with the Monthly Project.  What tips do you have for working with Foamcore for Dioramas.  From what I've gathered, sharp hobby knifes are the key.  However, any other tips?

What about gluing options (glue gun, any others??). 

What about painting on foamcore, any special tricks (is primer necessary?)

As you can see, I hope to make this week's thread, the one shop stop for all your foamcore questions.

Phruby, I saw that same pack of figures.  I thought it would make a great Snow Bunny too.  I may go ahead and pick it up.  The $10 price tag turned me off.  I'm not sure what I'd use the other figures for.

I'm also not familar with the "King".

I really like the Padme nightgown although the joints on the sholders look a little loose.  Which Padme head is that?  I'm not good with identifying body parts yet  ;)

Telfien is my favorite.  The robes look great.  Are those hand stiched or taken from some other figure? 

I've never been a fan of snaggletooth but your version looks really good.

Your carded work always amazes me.  I love the details you put into these.  What sort of labels do you use to make the cards and inserts?

Gamesworkshop sells a "paint" called Hardcoat.  It is water based coating that leaves the figures very shiny.  I was told that if you water it down, the shininess will diminish.  You might try something like that, although I'd try it on a different figure first!

Maybe I missed it, but I didn't see the Darth Plaguies (sp?) photo
