Where's the reference photo? Did I miss it? It looks like a very solid human figure so far. It will be interesting to see how he turns out.

He really does look like a stern, military commando.  Great work on a more casual costume.

Thanks everyone for the great comments!!  I think I'm more proud of this custom than I am of my ARCs.  I haven't been able to get the rest of Kal painted yet, prepering for Irish Christmas and all.  I have a Republic Commando on the way and he's going to be made into a removable helmet, articulated legs, Omega squad commando...which one I'm not sure yet, but I am leaning towards Darman....in the black matte armor.  Anyways...thanks again!!

Republic Commando Atin

Here are some first shot pics of my Atin WIP.  I've gotten his removable helmet painted, and only need a few touch-ups in some places.  Putting a Gunner head on him was easier than it seemed, even though I was nervous as all cutting into my only Scorch.

I don't know where the eerie blue shadow came from, I took this in the same light  I always use.






Comments, questions, gripes...you know the drill...


Thanks

Everyone know's I love my clones and this is a great one but the only little thing that I would change would be the visor it looks like it could do with some white blue to give it a reflected look but other then that great work.

I wanted to add a little more color to make it look a little reflective...I think i have  some metallic/reflective paint around here some where....just a matter of finding it.

Thanks

Finally!!  More WIP pics of good ol' Atin.  Sorry to keep everyone waiting.   :crazy:

Big thanks go out to DarthDelicious for being braver than I am and making Scorch have th articulation he should've had in the first place.  And also to Glassman, great pieces from a great customizer! 

Now, without further ado...









I know a couple of the pics are kinda blurry..and for that I apologize, but it's been while since I've taken custom pics so I'm a bit rusty.  All I have left to paint is the legs, and add a scar, and he'll finally be finished!

Questions, comments, gripes...lemme have em!

Nicely executed removable helmet.  I'm currently working on a set of commandos with removable helmets as well.  The things that I like about your commando are the blue visor, reminds me for some reason of Vader.  Nice looking.  The black armor looks cool with the lower calf area in the white stripes.  Cool deco. 

The weapon is also pretty cool.  I like that modified muzzle that you made.  Do you plan on making more gear forthis commando?  I'd love to see some gear and exras. 
NOTE TO HASBRO,
SA JANGO would sell quite well!

Very nice!  I congratulate you for being braver than me and adding a removable helmet to an RC.  Very good smooth, even coat on the black armor, and your added articulation is great.  I would suggest adding some lighter blue on the visor for that reflective look, but still a great job.

Thanks for the comments guys!!  I do need to clairify that the leg articulation wasn't done by me.  Darth Delicious did it for me, he's braver than I am...so this guy has been on a cross country voyage.  I did, however, do the head swap, and the helmet is from Glassman, it's an awesome peice.  I'm going to be painting his lower legs soon enough, and need to mod the backpack, and the leg canister thingy.  I have a few interm customs going right now, simple part swaps, with some repainting too, and I have a V-Wing pilot in the planning stage as I found an AT-AT driver yesterday at K-Mart.  On the subject of the V-Wing pilot, does anyone have any good refrence photos of him?  I have the cross section book and it shows a little detail, but I really need more.  Anything is helpful

Thanks again!

The V-Wing.  The ship that was escorting Palpy's shuttle at the tail end of EPIII.

Thanks

Hmmm I say for this one go to FFURG, they have the recipe page here And they have a V-wing pilot in there, it's not the best but it's still good.
