Customizing Tips and Tricks / Re: Matte vs. Flat
« on: January 7, 2006, 04:05 PM »
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.

I've actually got a few ideas for this line.  I'm thinking about a IG-88 lancer, a Saesee tinn, and I'm still planning on a Padme snow bunny.  I recently finished a Clone Wars Republic Gunship that was sold to cover some SW collecting expenses.  Maybe I'll include that with my entry(ies).  I'm looking forward to my first Group Project!!!

I must admit, I'm a little confused on the dates for this group project.  Is this group project different than the other challenge thats running (Diorama challenge?).  If so are they occuring simultaneously? 

I really really liked the black battle droid.  Where did you get the armor for the Wookie Warriors.  I've got several of those figures that I want to customize.

. A frozen snow trooper would be cool.( hint , Hint) ;D

That would look great!

He looks maybe a tad bit too muscular.  You may want to consider black paint to match the hood.

I've also already started a snowbunny.  Although I was hoping to sell it on eBay to cover some of my recent expenses (its a pain to have to buy your fodder).  I hope I can make mine look half as good as the one that Owen made.

Brent, I'm pretty sure the last couple pics of him standing are just for fun.



I figured this, I was just trying to have a little fun  ;)

Very Cool.  One question, that last photo of stormie (with his helmet half blown off).  How did he survive that injury and remain standing  ;)

WOW, those version 2 Micromen look awesome.  Really really great.  I love the posability that they get.  I always felt like the first bike scout looked a little "thin"  these guys are filled out nicely!  Keep up the great work.

So, what's your "secret special superglue"?  I haven't settled on a good brand yet.  I recall having the most sucess with something made by Koss (I think?)  but I can't find it anywhere anymore.

I appreciate all the dremel advice in this thread.  I've only dremelled a little bit this year and each time I think I'm going to grind my fingers to a pulp  :)

I seem to recall popping the harness off without boiling it...  I think I may have popped one arm off, but it wasn't too hard really.  I know I was just careful in doing so, and didn't damage the figure at all.  I wanted it for just seeing how it would maybe look on a Stormtrooper for something.  Looked good.
I've gotten them off by popping off one arm and the sliding it over the neck post.

I love the SA Qui-Gon.  I'm definitely going to try one of those.  I bought 5 Obi Pilots today on clearance - sweet.
