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

can we have multiple entries? Can we enter clones as long as we also enter a non-clone characters?
Since I'm new this forum, I kind of have the same question.   I assumed this wasn't so much a "constest" as more a motivation to get us to work on common themes/characters.  As such, I assume that would could have multiple entries (aka Bounty Hunters, Sith Lords, etc?) But like I said, I'm new and I don't know whats going on  :) :)

A little off topic, but is there an easy explanation on how to create the lightsaber effects with Photoshop?  I've been wanting to try that but I'm not sure where to start.
