Hmmm... I'd suggest another head on that Imperial, that Luke just looks so crazy if it's not on a Dagobah version...  ;)

Maybe a SAGA Captain Antilles head?

That sounds like a good choice, and then maybe gray the hair slightly... the stern look on that one would work great for an Imperial, too.

Sorry for all the advice!  ;)

Heh, no, it's ok. I wish they'd make a lower ranked Imperial body for heads like that. My inspiration for using that head was probably Pyro from the X-Men movies, with the "spiked" hair and all. I'll have to search for an Antilles head to, sounds like a good idea.

No name for him, sadly, Findswoman.

I'm hoping to have some "better" customs over the next week or so though. ;)

As it turns out, Diddly, I have a spare Antilles head, and would be glad to trade it to you if you'd like it -- just say the word.  :)

I'm kind of on a customizing hiatus right now, but still plan on making something for this.

Im sort of new here but not new to making customs. I thought a good imperial custom might be a battlefront 2 dark trooper with arc caster So this is my first posting here, hope you like my work.  :)

(Old pic...sorry for the Photoshop-ness of it)



Before the Clone Wars, Colonel Horla Picnaring was Vice-Admiral of the Tybuska sector fleet. Charged with defending the interests of his small, republican sector, Picnaring served with distinction for 12 years.

When the Great Clone Wars began, Picnaring was recruited by the Republic to command a small fleet of Dreadnaughts in the Unknown Regions to 'keep track' of any Confederate movements there.

After the war, Picnaring served as occupied Nemodia's Governor-General. His tenure as Governor-General was marked by a series of pro-nativist legislations, which served to draw the ire of many on Coruscant. Eventually, his resignation was forced by ISB Commissioner Daetri Perron, who accused the Governor-General of treason.

Picnaring was fortunate enough to have many friends in the military, who faught for, and eventually won, his release from imperial custody. After being released, Horla returned to Tybuska, where he would quietly live out the remainder of his life.

This was simply a Veers body painted black with a jumpsuit Imp head.

HEre's another I just completed for my Rise of the Empire line.  THis Fleet Security Trooper is an early Imperial from the first years of the galactic Empire.  Its also in my custom's thread but I thought that it fit the profile of this month's project so I posted it here as well.  Let me know,

Great job. Did you make the earmuff-type things from scratch?

No that head is from the potf2 DS Trooper.  retooled and reworked.  I did add the soft strap in the back.  HTe head is relatively a total retool of that 10 year old sculpt.  I sended off the chin strap, etc.

Nice stuff guys.

The Darktrooper looks good, I just don't like that old POTF2 Stormtrooper sculpt.  But the gun looks sweet!

Vator, that's a pretty cool Imperial.  I love the baton in his hand.

Daigobah, that's simple yet effective.  I can't wait for the Jerrod figure to come out too, I'm sure you're looking forward to that figure.

Outrider, that's a great Imperial, as always the accessories are the perfect touch.

Im in the process of finishing up my Imp and slave girl now. The slave is a very intricate undertaking as far as her out fit goes. I have no idea how I got the strange assemblege of parts that I chose to stick together but so far its working.

My imp officer is taking a little more time than I thought too. But I will have them dont by the deadline.

Well, heres my slave girl, as promised. Her outfit is VERY loosely based on a strippers outfit a freind of mine used to wear back home. The figures head kinda looks like her, so Ill just name her Vixen. That was her stage name. ;D
Of course when she finds out I made this she will kill me. :o



Lets see if I can remember the parts I used.

Head: AAy Vida
Torso: Slave Leia
Arms: Luminara ( Sculpied into sockets)
Legs: Ay Vida
Hair: Baroness ( and a few strands of thread.)
All the various straps and such are rubberbands, cut and glued.

Im still working on my Imp right now. He is in the process of drying. If I finish him tonight Ill post him.
