Outrider, you are so right.  Simple doesn't mean easy.  I had to sand down the head post on the Obi-Wan body and keep trying the head on to make sure he didn't look freakish.  That took an hour or so...all the while my wife looking on like I'm torchering a puppy.  I'm still working on him a little, I want to shave the sides of that fro down some...but am kinda scared to do so...  Anyways...thanks again for the comment!!

So, while waiting for my wife to give birth(Due on last Friday...still waiting...), I've been writing a fan fic about the Arc squad that I've done on here.  I've introduced a pilot to the group, though he's not an Arc like the rest, he is like their own personal chauffer, so he feels like he's part of the team.  I've named him Dead Eye, and not because he's a good shot, he's got a dead eye, simple huh?  These pics are the first stages of the project.  Painting, weathering, and general adjustments are in line in the next few days...granted nothing comes up.

Head & helmet cast thanks go out to Glassman, he's great to work with!




Few simple mods here make him stand out from the rest of the clones out there.  I may add some other do dads here and there.


I love how the same camera at the same angle in the same lighting can have one picture come out SO different from the rest...nice odd orange wash here.



So that's Dead Eye for now...

Comments, gripes, questions...let me have them.

Cool, I can't wait to see it painted.  I have one of those head casts, and they're fantastic to work with.  Hope all is well with you and your wife, and congrats on your new child.

I was actually thinking of painting him in a yellow scheme similar to the Arc squad he 'taxis' around.  I need to paint the head cast so I'm working on mixing upa skin tone for him that's like the actual figures.  Thanks for the comments!!

Here is the latest update to good ol Dead Eye.  The hair was mine and the eyes and eyebrows are curtoisy of my wife.  She has such a great steady hand.



The helmet has much to be desired.  Due to the excess air bubbles it looks kinda...well...bad, but I'll make due.


That's it for now...

As always, comments, guestion, gripes...

Your wife did that while expecting a kid?! She's good.  Anyway, great work on the head, and I love the pilot helmet scheme, great work!

Like I commented at RS, just use it as part of your backstory. :)

I think he's comming along great Dre, the air bubbles are exactly why i gave it to you for free.
If you lightly sand the helmets with some fine grain sand paper, and then add another coat, those bubles should fill right in.

That's a good idea Glassman, I will try that.  Yeah, my 9month, 1week pregnant wife did the eyes and such, and she told me her normally steady hand wasn't so steady tonight.  Thanks guys!

Well it looks great to me, even without the pains and discomforts of pregnancy, it would be great.

Here's the latest on Dead Eye. 

I've finished his scar, and started painting his armor.


Here is a quick preview pic of the entire team.
