Pretty cool customs there!  Never thought about making an army out of Dresslians before.  Very cool!   8)

I appreciate any customizer who gives deserved "face time" to any of the neglected aliens in the SW universe.  Dresselians are not my favs by far, but it seems like you took time and effort to make them unique and get rid of that darned eyepatch.  Good job!  As far as displaying/photographing them, I'd set up some colored background in the very least...the wall is very distracting.

Thanks.  That's not the completed diorama by any means though, that's just some of the completed figures.  The diorama is going to have trees, bushes, and the Dresselians popping out of holes and tunnels knocking of scored of stormies.

The head came from a mold of RS's Scoundrel, he used it in his Irofuci the Dresselian custom.  I got the heads from him, made the cloaks from microfiber towels and employed my Oral Surgery suturing technique, and scrounged up some well articulated bodies from other lines like GI Joe and World Peacekeepers.

I'll post the completed diorama in the coming weeks.

Don't mess with Dresselians  :D

I'd run from a Pruneface army!  Looks nice, good job DR!

Clone Trooper Leadership

With green clone seargents heading up a squad of 10 clonetroopers, 1 out of every 10 of your clones should have green stripes.

Hasbro has only released the green clone squatting in the 3 packs, not very good for army building.

My answer is the red clone captain repainted.

I used Utrecht Cadmium Green acrylic paint and a clear coat of varnish to make it shiny.

Nicely done!  I have heard many people just switching body parts among all those Clone Troopers, but your paint job looks great!

Pretty nice figure's overall Dressel, and more Jedi are always nice to see.  I think I like the Ithorian the best personally, though action poses aren't my cup of tea usually.

My one critique I'd make is to dirty up or alter the color of the Weequay's uniform, as it's very "clean" in the photos, and almost white looking.  Some variety in color there can set the outfit apart from being just an Obi-Wan body and make it look like more unique and such.  A dry brush over whatever color choices you make then will bring out the sculpting detail, which for a figure in 1999 or so was really quite nice.

Nice job Matt #27!  Aliens and Jedi are always cool in my book, so to slap 'em both together makes for some nice customs.



Judging by your customizing "recipe" here, I'd guess that these guys ain't articulated anymore, right?  Still cool nonethless...

And if you don't have an airbrush handy, like Jesse suggested, just take them outside and roll 'em around in the dirt a little.  That should do the trick!   :P

Keep 'em coming!   8)

Sup y'all

Sora Bulq is articulated at the neck, shoulders, elbows, wrists, waist, and hips.

Roran Corobb is articulated at the head, shoulders, wrists, and waist.  The decloaked  nikto jedi figure I used as a base was never articulated at the hips to begin with.

Everyone hug your Ithorians tonight.

 :D

Oh, OK - cool!  I thought you just lopped some stuff off and glued it on...  Even better that you maintained their articulation.  Hope that's a Five Star Henckels butcher knife you've got there!
