Looks good DN, but who is he?   (edited after the fact - nevermind, I saw your post in your personal thread).

I like the touch of the Canteen on the belt.

I like him, Nirvana!  He looks sort of like Han Solo would if he had given his mercenary services to the Empire instead of the Rebellion.  (And there's that cloth bit again!  Very cool.)

I don't know if anyone mentioned it already & I just wasn't paying attention, but could someone remind me of the deadline for this project?  Or have we decided on one?  I ask because I am contemplating a 12" submission (which I hope is all right), but some of the parts I need won't be available until July.  I can come up with a 3.75" Plan B, if needs be.  Anyway, if anyone knows, do let me know, too.  Thanks much!

The plan is for this one to end at the end of June (but we are very nice, a July entry is ok too!).

I fixed the hair missing, added a bit more dirt to the boots, and replaced the beard with 5 oclock shadow...I think he looks a little less like Han.

For what it's worth,  also found another alternate headsculpt...not sure I like it, though.

nice mix of parts but i'm not too fond of the over weathered customs, SW is more smooth looking imho

i like the use of parts too like the canteen, but the dirty faces is what i don't personally care for. its as if your wash gets out of control and the faces don't get cleaned up when you're done. it kind of hits me like paint overspray on a car, that sort of thing. this is nothing personal at all, i just feel the figures would look better if the faces were a bit cleaner.

things are so busy around here for me, there is no way i can make it for this project which is disappointing. i hope to be customizing again sometime in july after my birthday.

DN, as you know I'm a fan of your work.  I do agree that there is a bit too much weathering on the faces, it almost looks like they've been sprayed by mud or something... I just think they would want to wipe off their faces in real life.  Other than that small detail, they look great!

Ripley, I know you've been busy... hope things get back to normal for you soon!

I'm thinking about making one (or two) of these for the challenge.  What color is the mesh jump suit?  Yellow, green or something else?



Thanks!

Yellow, but with the blue twilek underneath, and you being color blind I can see how green is easily mistaken for. ;)

Out of boredom, I decided to do a quick headswap custom for this month's contest!

First we have an Imperial Moff:





Recipe:

Head: OTC Dagobah Luke
Body: ROTS Tarkin

I know it stinks compared to the other work, but it was great for killing boredom :)

that moff looks good, but it looks like he's in the habit of sniffing some serious glue!  :)

Tee hee!  Yes, he does have that look to him.   :)  Also, that Luke head makes him look very young to be something as high-ranking as a Moff.  Does he have a name?
