DD -

Thanks man!  I think thats why it took so long to finish it.  I'd rather wait for the right peices than do a mediocur job.  yeah I agree with the Kama, I should have waited to get a better material, but it COULD be possible that they fray some what?  :-\ I used very little silver/metallic paint, and with the white apps and weathering it didnt really come out in the pic; good points all though and i will adjust accorrdingly.  ;D

the jedi is one of my favs thus far. u did the duros Jedi with that body right? thats where i got the idea from.  he's actually be done since december, but never got around to posting and i am so anal about my customs that I wasnt quite sure it was a finished prod or not, im glad i posted him now.  ;D
Sakiyani?  I wondered what species jasper was.

CHEWIE -

thanks Mate! I know, they do look like bad mama jama's. Since we will be seeing cody, hopefully we will see these guys from big H as well.
 I was hoping the drybrushing on the hands and head  of the Jedi showed up in the pic.  With the inside picks I took of 'em, the flash tottaly washed out the detail.  Thanks for the praise buddy......now if i could jus' bus'em out fasta like u and DD.  ;D

Hey gang!

heres one i did for my brother back in december.† I didnt take the pix beofre i sent it too him, so these were takin by him; so the quality isnt so great.† ;D

I think most of the "flash" glare is actually the metal paint i used for the scarring and highlights.† the detail doesnt show up to well but u should get an idea.† my concept of this guy was to show alot of scoring with mostly metal showing through.† this was cobbled together with leftover clone parts.
upper torso atte gunner, pelvis and legs from a #41.

lmk what u think.

The pics are a bit blurry but the custom from what I see looks very good, nice clean painting.

All I can say is: It looks like you did a great job making a crappy color scheme.

Please do not take offense, I just hate that particular clone color choice. It isnt, your fault Hasbeen came up with it.

Isn't that just a bummer? Flashes always seem to have adverse effects on my custom, usually washing out all the details i WANT to have seen, and bringing out all the detail I don't (dust, scratches, etc.)

I was always kind of jealous of my buddy who had two (three?) Shadow Troopers, but I eventually got over it as I decided Clones weren't as cool as their fanboyism made them out to be. Nonetheless, I always enjoy a goodcustom. Is this made from an exclusive Utapau Shadow Trooper, or did you paint up a #41 clone?

If this is a repaint, it looks extremely clean, something I can never do with my customs. By clean, I mean the lines are really crisp and straight. I really wish I could see the highlights and weathering you put on him, because it always seems to be those little details that make or break a custom. It's looking good, though!

Proper lighting so you don't have to use a flash is key for getting good photos.  I'm still trying to figure it all out but I'm getting better.  I recommend trying to use a "macro" mode on your camera and no flash if at all possible.

Mate I really have to apologize I have no idea how I have missed your section for soooooooo long especially with all these great clone trooopers.

Black/Grey Troooper- even with the flash you can still see the detail in this figure and I like the colours you've used very well done.

Parjai trooper- Over all this figure is very good but it's the details such as the cloth goods and helmet that really make him great work.

The jedi- Great figure with just the right amount of drybrushing and the darker colours for the cloths really bring out your paint apps nice work.

General Windu- It's actually great to see someone do a Windu figure and the I really like the grey armour it really suits him and the robes are also well done.

General Kenobi- Now this figure is awesome everything about him is very very well done.

Dark Luke- I'm totally loving this figure you've gone and done what alot of people can't and that is you made him look like he beongs in teh vader type suit very well done indeed.

Death Squads- Great back story but even better figure to go along with it the colour scheme is fantastic and the use of all the different gear is very unqiue excellent work mate.

As for the other pics I wish I could comment on them but I'm getting the dreaded
RED X

Thanks Hemble, that means a lot coming from u.  Unfortunately the dark Luke isnt one of my creations, it was done by Eric Schroeder back in the late 90's.  We had discussed parts and talked over the general look....and the final prod is just awesome.  I havenít updated in quite a will so its no wonder u didnít see it.   ;D.  Yeah the red X's are from some pix i had to delete.  Not much storage on photo bucket.

Thanks again for the words bro.
  :'(   ;D

TK,  I really like how your Parjai trooper turned out. Very nice work.
Both your Shadow trooper and Jedi are great pieces too.
And you are one lucky duck to own AE77's halo clone. I loved that one.

Great update with Grievous' guard also. I wals looking at mine over the weekend and thought, he need some touchups.. You did a great job of it.
