That is a great job on the figures too.
As for bantha5's cast, if you boil it, it will soften and you can slide it right on. Be carful not to squeeze it or you will deform the helmet.

looking cool, I'm really liing the bridge.. might I suggest poking some wires into the broken off parts of the bridge, maybe even adding some "chunks" of bridge bits to the ends of the wires... and of course.. I cant find a single picture to help explain what I'm talking about, lol

EDIT:
although not a "bridge" http://wickedcollectibles.com/images/products/mcfarlane/mc_0011.jpg
kinda helps explain what I'm talking about.. see the piller next to him.. that's the look I was talking about.

Sweet, I'll use that.  Thanks for the tip and kind words.

UPDATE-
I just threw this guy together for the MCC, he's my slave(ok, that sounded weird :P).   I'm thinking about adding a belt to help with the waistline effect.
Anyway, LMK what you think and thanks for looking! :)

Good job. I know what the gist of the parts are but where did the arms come from?

HE looks like hell. Like a slave should. Keep em comin.

To hide the waist gap try a piece of twine,  it'll look rough and down trodden and like a poorman's belt, plus it will hide the gap. between the torso and the hips.  Otherwise it is and engenious custom the fits the look of a slave very well.

Great work on the bridge and the Baccara BTW.

UPDATE-
I totally redid my BARC trooper with a more movie accurate camo scheme.  I also added a belt to my slave, but forgot to take pics, I'll have some up soon.

Looks good, except the Fiber mesh underneath the armor, You need to clean it up with some flat black ;) Besides that, excellant 41st scout

UPDATE-
Here is the first in a series of many Imperial Commandos customs, Captain Argos. It still needs some touchups and weathering, and it's no sithfire, but it's a start.  For those that don't know, Imperial Commandos is a fan film that can be seen here.  As of right now there's no final armor, so my figure won't have armor for a while.  LMK what you think and thanks for looking!

Looks pretty cool.  A bit rough on some of the fine details, but painting like that is never easy.  I really like the design, looks like one mean clone.

Thanks,
I cleaned it up a little after I took the pics, so it looks better now.  I always seem to take the pics and then fix an error :P oh well...

UPDATE-
Per Joeryno's suggestion, I added some wire to the craters, I love it!  My dad found me the perfect material, Picture Hanging wire. LMK what you think and thanks for looking!

Those wires are a great addition.  Very cool touch.
