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

When do you think it will be done?  Will it be a fan fic character, or a redo of an existing character?  Have you already decided on who it will be?

Maybe it could be a "travel trooper" - a clone/stormtrooper w/ a tourist camera and a suitcase?   ;)


Maybe he should have a suitcase, or at least come packed in one.  Each customized can add a travel bumper sticker to it!

I love the update.  I like the Gran.  I want to make more generic aliens like these. 

It kills me, how quickly you guys are able to identify body parts from some many sources.  I can tell I'm a rookie at this!

I'm thinking about building a small backdrop diorama set-up using form core.  However, I don't already own a glue gun and I'm not sure I want to invest.  Do you guys have any luck with regular superglue or elmers glue?  What else would you recommend?

Hmm, the consensus seems to be a black face.  I painted it red to differentiate from the other Jawas.   I've also thought about adding some metallic accents to the face.  I just want to do something to differentiate it. 

Meditate on this I must.

Here is new custom I've started working on - a Jawa Sith Lord. This is a work in progress.  I have a bunch of Jawas that I've collected so it seems like a good idea that one of them would have found the dark side.  So far, its just a simple repaint.  Let me know what you think and what additions I could consider.   When I looked at the photos close up, I realize there is a lot of spots that still need touch up paint too :)

Sure, I'd be game to play along

If you camera allows for a "Macro" mode then thats the best way to take pictures.  Many above average camera's have this feature (sometimes looks like a little flower icon too).

Good luck!  Looking good so far!

Chewie, in the version his hair seems to "wide" just above his temples.  I like the previous version a little better I think

I've had problems with sticky touch after spraying matte coats.  I'm looking forward to hearing the answers from this one.

I'd like to start building out my custom fodder.  I have a lot of ROTS Fodder available (especially clones of all variations).  I don't have any specific fodder requests because I don't know what I really need.  I'm basically trying to figure out a system for building up my fodder base w/o bankrupting my paypal account through eBay.

Works, for me.  I'll have to try it with photoshop.  Just sounds like a couple of layers to me.  I like it.  Thanks
