Yeah, the clone with the guard helmet rocks.... reminds me of a Mandalorian from KOTOR.  I like how you painted the shoulders to match the helmet color, and the gauntlets are a great touch.

that crispy Anakin is on fire  ;D really dig it.  though you should probably give him at least either the Vader or Anakin saber.  what guns is the clone ARC comm. sporting? I like the clone/guard but somethings missing maybe he needs like a half cape like Boussh or Snoova has or a kama, he does look cool though.  Darth Wolvie good choice i likey  :D

I think the Arc commander has the pitsol from Kyle Katarn. I was going to use that pistol for my Arc Commander when I get the HFG bp. Looks much better sized than what has been made for Arc customs. Those costoms look good but too cartoonish for the non-animated figures. Plus with the Kyle blaster you can make the holsters for them without the over sized look ;).

Love the creativity stormtripper. One of my favs is the SA Obi-Wan with clone trooper parts. Genius way of building that figure.

here are a few pic's of my imperial gunship. My wife actually helped me paint the base black, so I will give her 10% credit for her part (she was busy with other things) I wanted to have a sorta war torn at-at /at-st type finish to it and think I sorta achieved that. Let me know what you guys think!

Great looking gunship.  The paints looks pretty good and great job on the weathering/dry brushing.  I like it.

Love the gunship.  It looks great.  The weathering styled paint scheme is very good.  The shadow troopers look right at home on that thing but I have a hard time envisioning Vader riding in one.

great paintjob on the gunship, the crew looks really good.  just weather the Imperial insignia a little and it'd look better.  i like the Vader in there.

I agree about weathering the imperial insignia, but other than that I think you've got a great ship here.  I would add some "blast marks" to the sides though.  You can do a splotch (for lack of a better word) of black paint and then do a smaller splotch of silver paint to make it look like the paint was blasted off. 

I didn't really like the Shadow Troopers very much, but now that I see them in that pic, they look pretty badass.  Great job!

Is the terrible AT-AT walking machine.
It's as big as a house on walking legs,
and whatever it steps on it crushes like eggs.

Here is my WIP dagobah training luke, apparently he was a little freaked out the first time in the cave, "only what you take with you" so this time he was a little better prepared.


This is still a work in progress (my sense of humor will be removed), but it will have a better head sculpt, the arms are going to be repainted with a flesh tone, the little glove do-dads are going to be lobed off as well. The ball and sockets went in with a little elbow grease and the boil and pop method. The batman figure came with 5 or six different pairs of hands so I plan to do a couple pair. I will try and get more pics as I am completeing the stages.
