Thats hot! Yes, this is Commander Cow (can you guess where he got his name from?).
He and a legion of only 3 other clones, and a Jedi Knight are stationed on a outter rim single city planet called Obsidion I. The planet is made up of pure black crystal, and a fine white powder with effects similar to bacta. The Republic has an exclusive deal to keep the only existing city of miners(and their small families) safe from Seperatist interference, and general scum.
Thats his short backstory, not let me explain what I did.
First, I painted all the parts I wanted painted (the helmet ridge, sholder pad, chest plate, knee stripes) all black. 3 or 4 coats, if I remeber correctly. Then I sealed them with Super Glue.
Next I took several greeblies and blaster parts and I chopped them up. I made 2 knobs for the Obi-Wan backpack radio area (The side with the antena) and added the little controll pannel from Lukes bacta hand tank. Next I glued a Jango missle I had laying around to the two tanks that are attached on the right side of the backpack. Once everything was glued good and fancy, I painted the bedroll on the bottom black, and then I pained the middle pouch to look like leather from an animal. It turned out pretty good if I do say so myself. Whatever parts were left over I chopped up and glued to spots on the harness, like the side strap, where I added two emergency rations containers.
Once everything was honky dory, I took some black and I drybrushed a wash into the harness and onto the rocket and mechanical parts (except the radio) to make it look like it had seen some time on the battle feild around the galaxy. It turned out very well. Now all the pockets look like old leather, the buckles look tarnished a bit and overall it just looks swell.
He's holding a custom ARC trooper blaster, but that will change once I come up with a new recipie for a gun for him.
