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

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.

Star Wars Action Figures / Brent's Customs - Update 1/22

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 :)
