You guys must be east of the Mississippi, because it takes over a week for anybody (smooth-on, polytek, micro-mark) to get any supplies to me.  Sometimes 2.

I'd help you out, but I've got so much on my plate between work and commissions that I just don't have the time.

You mean Wal-Mart hasn't taken over The Netherlands yet?  Well, looks like he's back as per his post on Yakface, so now's the time to get 'em!

Yes I did.  He sent me a bunch of pre-cut ones, but they were too small for the look I was going for.  So I used the rectangular bit he sent me to cut them out.

It's some really thin suede, but Paul (Outrider) couldn't remember what brand they were or where he got them. 

Not yet.  My boys told me they want one each, so before one goes to me, they'll get one. 

Thanks for the compliments guys.  Always great to hear your work appreciated.

Wow if you could mass produce something like this I'd buy 'em all.

I've made molds for the helmets, weapons, pauldron, and guns, so making more isn't a materials problem.  It's more a matter of how long it takes to sculpt such small accessories on a figure.  I have 1 more in the works, and may do more in the future.

Are you gonna keep the Phase 1 Arcs??

You mean the one with the AOTC helmet on?  If so, then no.  That one will be sold as well.  I'm working on some different leg bindings for him, and other various stuff that I haven't quite fleshed out yet in my mind. 


This is my version of Ordo, phase II+.  The plus sign is because of the more betterer stuffs I done added to him.

Looks great, Robo-Quack!  Maybe a bit more rubble and more troops, and it'll be even better.

I'd certainly re-elect Joe Esteves if I could.  He seems like a neat guy by the poster.   ;)

Speaking of it normal to pay `25 bucks for 1 of them on ebay, or is that a more recent development?

You'd probably have to catch a scalper douche in the act...

Finally done with this guy.  Took a while to do his belt spat thingies, and just generally finish up.  Now that I've taken the final pics, I noticed I need to do some touch-up painting, and paint some smaller details on his wrist gauntlets and rifle.  Without further ado:

And a WIP shot.  The AOTC helmet was made removable using Glassman's technique (you rock Glass!), and I think it looks better than Hasbro's removable helmet.

P.S. - Replace the word "Sculpy" with "Fixit."  It's late, it's Friday, and I'm a tad tipsy...

Do they produce an online edition?  I'm too lazy to research it...

Thanks Hemble, I always enjoy your work, so it's good to hear a pro likes my stuff.

I've been busy (haven't we all?) with real life crap for a while, so not much here.  I have finally managed to begin painting 2 of the ARCs, pictured here, along with their


I used Blasterman's technique to give this guy ball-jointed wrists, which is the only way to go if you want your clone holding his weapon south-central style. 

I've come to the realization that I hate thinking about painting, but I kinda like it once I get started.  Procrastination is my forte, you might say.  This guy is almost done.  It's taken a while because I had to seek advice and figure out the best way to cast his pauldron.  I've got some casts that I think I'm happy with, so it's onto the kama.  I'll be giving his rifle a sling, again using Blasterman's technique with the lego sail canvas.

The third, headless ARC will end up being a Null.  So I've been doing some different things with his leg armor.  I'll be doing more with his upper body armor, mainly more techy-looking gadgets and what-not.  The trick will be to avoid making him look like a power ranger.    :)

Erectile Dysfunction?  Try Advosec.

Rectal Bleeding?  Try Advosec.

I jest due to my ignorance.  Never heard of Advosec, but I do take Prilosec!

The Advosec looks kind of like a hairless Ewok, I think it's just the big eyes and nose.  Great job, as I am not ballsy enough to try faces yet.

The Selkath is by far my favorite.  The head shape is spot on, and the skin makes it look like it jumped out of KOTOR.  Nice job Smarty.  A guy your age producing this quality work is really amazing.  When I was your age, I was rocking out to Winger and Metallica, worried about keeping my mullet at the required 10/90 ratio.  Just remember us little guys when you're working for the big H.
