Nice simple set of figures Chewie. I like Ran Ceyh better in this set of clothes than before. What is up with his right eye? The skin color around it looks strange comparted to the rest of the face. It's probably just hasbro. Valorum looks good with the new hood and collar. You did something to the eyes didn't you? He looks older and fater than I remember the head looking originally. Rykrof definately has swashed his buckel with this outfit. Its like he is on his way to perform in the Pirates of Penzance or he is going out with Lobot.
I'm in the same boat Brent. I've got so much fodder to get rid of I should just start giving it away! The only time I get to make stuff is after the kids go to bed or on weekends. I do try to make at least one big complicated custom a month and a small number of repaints or simple part swaps. I think I'm averaging one a week.
Rolling Thunder was a great toy back in the days. It just shows that if Hasbro wanted to make a cool star wars vehicle they could just modify the GI Joe Rolling Thunder with some new paint apps. Nice modifications you made. Now detail it with some snow and blaster effects.
Believe it or not a Microman body really does paint up well. The hard plastic really makes the paint tought on the joints. It doesn't peel when moved like Hasbro plastic does. The best is to just prime the figure, paint, then cote with dull cote. You should do this with hasbro plastic anyway.
