Wow. Simple looking but technically difficult to build. Very impressive.

I've love that ARC fighter. The army green color is very fitting. The holes in the wings with wires is a briliant touch. It makes the ship look more like a movie model. You've taken a rather boring sculpt and turned it into something to be very proud of.

Your right Greg. The dirt is very understated on your Cody. I have in the works your Commander Fox helmet right now. I just need the body to go with it.

I've got my ceremony leias ready. Do you think I should use different heads or just use the Leia head? I need to make some sculpty belts.

Thanks guys. He does work alot better this way. Thanks for the suggestions and details I missed last time. Check out how Cody turned out. I really like the weathing on these two figures.

Since my computer now works, I've updated Commander Neyo to be more accurate than before. His helmet got reworked and I moved his logo more to the front. I fixed his belt so it goes in the right direction and made the palton smaller. Finally, I weathered the whole thing as suggested in the Cody thread. I think he makes for a much more dynamic figure.

I've weathered my Commander Cody as suggested by you guys. I've tried to make more weathering lower on the figure and less up above. I've also worked on making some dents in the armor with some scratches and silver/ black paint.

I know what dry brushing is but lets tell the studio audience so they know. I want this thread to be kind of a technique sharing thread. I'll apply techinques as they are talked about.

5334
It's great how flat and gloss work together. ;D

5335
I've finally gotten around to painting up my Cody. Right now he has all the coloring but needs weathering, chipping and his rank badge painted. Lets talk about weathering techniques. What is the best way to simulate scratches and chips? I want to have him look like he's been in a dusty environment. What colors should I use? How much of the body should be washed? Is a dry wash better and than a light wash?

Well, if you don't make one InRem, please post your suggestions and technical ideas and critiques. It's not a hard one to do but should be fun.

I'm going to go the traditional route and use ceremony leias from the princess leia collection for the figure. The glasses less Baroness would be a great head but I only have one with glasses. I've got lots of Padmes laying around that might work. I think the hard part will be making the hair.

Here we are at the beginning of our ninth group project. We've been doing these things since April 2004. You can see past group projects over at the FFURG Casting Calls. This time our subject will be a set of figures that Hasbro will never make not matter how much we beg and plead - the Tonnika Sisters.

Deadline for this project is the end of the year. That will give everybody something to do during Christmas vacation. It also gives you a good excuse to avoid visiting your mother-in-law because you need to get your figures done for us.  ;) I know, like that will fly.

Let's start looking for fodder and reference material for these girls. You're allowed to card them but its not necessary. Vintage or modern versions are OK. The sisters can be in any outfit you desire but they must be recognizable as the Tonnika sisters.

Let's get busy.



Here are some of my favorite customs of the sisters.

That is one green 305th Intelligence Trooper. I like the detailing of the jedi outfit he is wearing. I'd paint the visor a different color. It kind fo blends in with the rest of the helmet too much. What makes him an intelligence trooper? It seems like he needs some equipment. How does making him entirely green help in intelligence gathering?

5339
Exactly. I see the holster as adding playability. As for the leg armor I see it as artistic license. That leg armor just looks cool and much better than the pictures in the comic book. I think its enhansing the figure.

 ;D ;D ;D

You guys crack me up! I am planning on the staff. It just wasn't ready yet.

It is nice how someone would register just to bash little old me. It must be M!.T@&&$r.  ;)
