Looks nice... any way to resize the image?   ;)

Are you going to do any more painting on it?  I'd like to see a rider on it.   :)

Amazing job on the vest/bandolier thing.  Did you glue on the shin guards?

I always like seeing how small the Clones look next to these guys.

Man, I tell ya. I have tried and tried to figure out the whole resizing of the pics. They usually just turn out with half of the picture gone ::)If someone is willing to explain it to me,  I would more than appreciate it.
As far as the custom goes, the paint is final on it, it easily accepts most figs(EII Clone Pilot, AT-TE tank gunner as well as others) I will have to take some pics with a rider on it.

Nice looking swoop coeli! I think it could use a tad of weathering and maybe some other coloring, the paint jobjust looks kinda plain.

What program do use use to try and resize your images?

coeli,

indeed a cool looking Swoop, a really good use of the various parts, as the only thing I can notice from the parts you mentioned is the "wings" of the ObiWan droid as the vanes at the end of the swoop. I agree with SLC, that a bit of weathering on the swoop could be in order to give it a bit more of a Star Wars look to it.

Happy Customizing!

Very nice!! The paint looks great and that's a nice use of the AT_TE gunner's pad. :)

You should make one of those AT_TE troop transports, the ones that are on Felucia with the open roof. ;)

Top-npotch bandolier! It looks great! And nice work with the shin guards, they look better without the little tabs. :)

Either you need to start resizing your pics. coeli. or I've got to get a bigger monitor.  ;D

I like this guy. He looks ready to break some Clone Troopers in half. Great paint job, and I love the custom bandolier as well.

Too bad all these guys are back-shooting b*stards.  :P

Great job on the Bly...what reference pic did you use? I ask because some ref pics make it look as if his inner thigh armor is painted as well (albeit a different shade of yellow.)

I like the members of his squad as well. I did the same thing with my extra AT-TE gunner pads, but haven't painted it yet. Great minds think alike!  :P

Are there STAP parts in there as well?

I concur with the rest of the group...great job. It could use some weathering though...dirt and grime at the intake vents, some oil stains and some silver drybrushing to show some scrapes and a little oxidized paint here and there. I'd also probably drybrush on a little flat copper in some areas for a little rust action.

But then again, you built a scale AT-TE, so who the hell am I to give YOU advice?  :P

Where did we see a pic of his legs...only reason I ask is that I think I'm the only one to post one w/out paint there, and if it's incorrect, I'm changing it ASAP.
