Can you freakin' believe I have not updated this thread since 6.24.06?!?
Some of you know me, and some of you are probably "meeting" me for the first time; I used to be really active on Jedidefender and Rebelscum up until about 7 months ago, when working two jobs really came down hard on my free time and kept me out of the customs hobby for awhile. I'm just starting to get back into it, and am attempting my hand at some new projects including sculpting. Here's what I've made in the last week:
Like a lot of you, I really like the Republic Commando's, and have decided to build a few custom squads; this is the first, a demolitions expert who likes to experiment with turning existing munitions into bigger and better implements of destruction. His varied levels of success and his uncanny luck at sabacc have earned him the nickname "Wildcard."
Basically just a Scorch repaint with some custom gear, but like I said, I'm getting back into this slowly. I do plan on articulating his knees and feet like I have other Commando customs. This pic was taken before I "fogged" his visor.
Sev is modified from Hasbro's multipack, with the obvious knee and ankle articulation added, some subtle weathering, and a kit-bashed Sniper rifle.
I may yet weather the rifle a bit, but I figure Sev takes good care of his kit.
I also will probably add some numbers to his ammo counter.
Here's another member of my custom RC squad, their Sniper, Rayth.
Rayth is an interesting addition to Theta Squad, and somewhat of a dichotomy, as he is not only a proficient sniper and clone with the highest kill ratio in the Squad, but his knowledge of different species anatomy (the better to kill them) also makes him an exceptional field medic.
In one issue of insider, they had pics of Omega Squad, and one of them had a paint scheme just like "Boss" only in blue. Here's my take on that:
And a little action shot. I was bored.
And finally, the leader of my custom squad, Grail. (I haven't made a slicer for the squad yet, but it's coming.)
I realize these are all clones, but I have some non-clone stuff in the works. I'll post non-clone work soon. Oh, and I owe two board members customs still; I haven't forgotten. If you're one of them, drop me a line and remind me what the hell I'm supposed to be doing for you.
