Thanks for all the compliments. To answer Mr. Phruby's question, all of those clones started out at #41s and were made before the Jedi Assault, Tactical Ops, or Shocktroopers were officially released.
I used to paint a lot in high school but I really got away from it. I went to Celebration III this year (my first SW fan convention) and was really really intrigued by the customization and diorama exhibits. I knew I wanted to take a crack at it when I had the time.
My biggest personal limitation is that I'm color blind
So I'm constantly asking others for help with colors, etc. Thats one of the reasons I haven't veered much away from the simple colored clones. The Game Wizard paints help because their colors are pretty self explanatory (for the most part). If you ever see one of my customs and the color seems off - make sure you let me know
I've also done some playing around with Sculpy (Cody's Visor, various packs and pouches) and even casting resin parts (Fox's helmet). I've got a lot of ideas but not a lot of time to work on them.
Thanks again for the compliments. The skills I see on this forum are amazing.
