« on: November 13, 2005, 03:10 PM »
hey all got a quick ? for u.
 i dont really make backround chars so im limited to what i make ( troops jedi snators and pilots and mechanics) and senators easy, lots of senator figs, jedis easy, lots of jedi figs.

 but when it comes to mechanics i have no idea which figures to use.
 anyone got ideas.
also i am in constant need of difernt aliens/creatures for figures anyone got any good lines full of these kind of things?

You mean just generic mechanics working on ships and stuff?   I think the Imperial Technician is a good figure to use, as is the AT-ST driver bodies.

Here's a recent example.  Not the best customs I've done, but ok considering the old outdated body sculpts.

If you already know what figure base you want to use, then why are you asking for suggestions?

Can you show a pic of what figure he made you are referring to?

This figure base works well sometimes for mechanic type bodies -



It's an older sculpt, but I've used it on a few figures and it seemed to turn out ok. I think the key is mixing it with parts from other figures, and trying to paint it to disguise the older sculpt.
