Thanks for the nice words guys... sorry I  haven't been commenting on everyone's work here lately. It's hard keeping up with several forums... I do have a bit of an update to share though.


Tol Skorr - This is my take on the character for the Dark Horse comics, a fallen Jedi who has sided with Dooku in the Clone Wars.  Not accurate really to his appearance in the comics, this works for me though... Skorr will have an appearance in the Rykrof Enloe series, most likely in Chapter 24.



head - Wrestling figure
torso - Comic Quinlan Vos
arms - Comic Villie
tunic - Comic Quinlan Vos
legs - Evolutions Darth Maul


Phase II 334th Siege Battalion Troops - People who have read the photonovel series may remember these guys from Chapter 18 in the Rykrof Enloe series, Dark Exchange... this is their updated look with new helmets for Phase II armor.  All are just repaints of the Utapau Clone Trooper.





Commander Rykrof Enloe - Assuming that I am able to make another chapter with this battalion in it, this will be Rykrof's gear.



head - SAGA Endor Rebel
helmet - Comic Keller
body - Comic Keller
chest armor - SAGA2 Death Star Gunner
holsters - TAC Jango Fett


And here's a group shot -




Jina Rotebu - This young lady will appear in the Rykrof Enloe photonovel series.



head - Lucan daughter
torso - Comic Dark Woman
arms - Comic Dark Woman
hands - Comic Dark Woman
skirt - Golden Compass Mrs. Coulter
legs - McQuarrie Starkiller Hero


Reese Teelbek - This fan fiction character is a native of Dantooine and will appear in the series.



head - TAC Biggs
head gear - McQuarrie Starkiller Hero
torso - POTC Dannik Jerriko
arms - POTC Dannik Jerriko
legs - POTC Dannik Jerriko
hands - ROTS Count Dooku


Rydia Tal Hara - This is a fan fiction Jedi for the Rykrof Enloe series... as you can see, she's blind... the reason for this will be explained in the series when I finally get to that point.



head - ROTS Aayla Secura
rest - McQuarrie Starkiller hero


Macuunsa - My entry for the February Yakfinities - a cross breed between a Trandoshan and a Devorian.



head - VSTC Bossk
horns - Comic Pack Villie
torso - McQuarrie Snowtrooper
arms - VSTC Bossk
legs - Comic Pack Galactic Marine
feet - VSTC Bossk


3R-T9 - I figure this little guy is a medical droid assistant. He's really blue, but I like this.  I might paint the foot wires a different color.



dome - POTJ FX-7
rest - Early Bird R2D2


T2-D2 - General Snodd's personal Nemodian class astromech.  For the Rykrof Enloe series.



dome - mini unleashed Spider Droid
rest - SAGA2 Sail Barge R2-D2

I love Tol Skorr in fact I picked up that same figure to use for the same custom. But Rydia Tal Hara is amazing. The eyes are awesome. They seem to glow (I'm not sure if you intended this or not) and that very cool! Great job on all of them.
I remember my dream now.

Tol Skorr reminds me of John Travolta in Battlefield: Earth. A cool batch of figures there Chewie.

Talico Wan Kor, Sultra and Padme are all amazing. The color on Sultra, is that a custom color? The colors deepness is stellar.

It never ceases to amaze me how you can take seemly random parts and make them look much better than the original donor figures. Seeing these, I got to get off my butt and get some of my projects finished.

Chewie, how do you paint the joints so they do not rub? Also does anyone have a link to the painting tutorial that was on here a while ago?  Thanks

Great stuff as always Justin. I really like the water effect you were able achieve with the textured glass over the foam. It looks really neat. If I may make one suggestion though: I think it would look better with some clump foliage. There are a few layers there now, with the rock, this grass, and the trees but it feel like something is missing. I think some shrubs might be enough to complete it. Other than that it is about perfect.

I like the TFU troopers a lot as well. Thank you for keeping them white. :) Very nice parts combo on that Duros. I think my favorite two of the bunch are the two Jedi. The McRebel arms really work well with the body and the McHan cape. Something about the concept figures really works well for ancient figures. The wrappings and coloring on the other guy are great. And going back to your last update, I LOVE that Gotal Jedi. The tattered look that Anakin's arms give him are perfect. I like the blue highlights on the boot and his belt, they are a nice touch. I always enjoy your updates, even if I haven't been commenting as much as I used to.  :-[
