I was priming this AT-RT Driver to prep it for a camo variation, and I though he looked pretty cool just white. So I gave him a Stormtrooper-esque colour scheme.

AT-RT Driver sans camo:

This is my Stealth Advanced Reconnaissance Craft - SARC.

Funny how a simple black on black paint job seems to take the "albatross" look off this ship.

Now I just need 2 more Black Variant Clone Pilots.

That's freaking COOL!  Now I'm going to have to pick up an extra AT-RT driver to de-camo.

I know, I was surprised how good the AT RT Driver looked without camo. I have to say he was one of my least fav ROTS figs before.

That AT-RT driver does look great with the white armor.  Phruby made a similar one a while back too.  I think this would be a no-brainer for a repack for Hasbro actually.  Who wouldn't want it!  It's awesome.  If you're lazy, you can do what I did and just put the head on a regular Clone #41 body and just have to repaint the head.

The ARC fighter looks great too.  Really evil looking... I think a dark blue would also be a cool color scheme.

Thanks CHEWIE. I'll have to look up Phruby's AT-RT Driver.

I thought about dk blue on the SARC, sort of like a WWII Corsair paint job. But again I decided to go black on black. I am going back in right now with some brass detailing on the engine parts.

This guy was in the works for a while and I kept putting him down to work on other stuff.

I am not sure if he's finished ot not. He's an Ithorian peasant for Tatooine dio fodder.

It's my first use of softgoods.  ;)

I wish I had a better camer so I could take a close up of this guys face. I am really pleased with how this Trandoshen Smuggler worked out.

Great work!

The trandoshen looks awsome. I have an extra Bossk Bust-Up. I was going to use to make another Merc. But, I think I might copy this part mix if you don't mind?

Immitation is the best form of flattery.

Can't wait to see more.

Thanks for pointing that out CHEWIE. I wasn't aware of Phruby's custom. I checked it out and mine is similar. I swear it is a coincidence though.   :-[

Beautiful update!  The astromech, not much one can say on that other than it's really painted well, and the blue leg stripes make a good contrast with the rest of his coloring.

The Trandoshan looks really nice... I think his legs look a bit long, but it doesn't take away from the figure.  Good use of the body for this one.  Did you sculpt that collar?

The Ithorian is my favorite.  I like the cloth goods undergarment, that's very creative!

 :P

Thanks CHEWIE.

It's funny that you commented about the Trandoshen's legs looking too long. Originally, I just removed the Myo fig's feet and stuck Bossk's on, but he had the proportions of an ape. I added Bossk's ankle bandoliers to lengthen his legs. I used the original OTC Bossk side by side with my custom for comparative anatomy. So his legs are the correct length, as long as the OTC Bossk's legs are correct.  :-\

I really should stop posting astromechs I guess. But they are for me what clones are for everyone else.
 ;D

Glad you like the Ithorian. They are my fav SW race.

Thanks again!
