 :-[ A belated thanks for the comments guys, they're much appreciated  :)

Thanks for the detailed comments on the Quarren, Ryan. That one was a real pleasure to work on.

Anyway, here's Sahhrad Simn, the son of a male Iktotchi merchant and a female Chiss science officer. Simn was viewed as a bastard son, an outcast and his parents, under pressure from their societies, had to give him up after only a few months. He was adopted by a Mandalorian and of course was raised as one himself.



Recipe:
CW Saesee Tinn: head, forearms
Jango Fett (Kamino Escape): torso, upper arms, pelvis, jetpack
Galactic Marine: legs

As always, feel free to critique!

Iktotchi/Chiss! EXCELLENT combo.


We should have more inter-racial aliens. I can just imagine some of the really cool mixed races from that.

Great custom!

Jeditaz made a very cool website using googlepages. This inspired me to do something similar, so feel free to check out Incom's Customs Conspiracy!

It's still in its early stages, but I'm gradually building up on the contents. My latest addition is a section called On the bench, which currently features my Krath Shocktrooper I'm working on.

Great for first start. Easy to read and simple layout. As you add content, it'll get better and better.

Thanks, still learning how to best place the different areas of the site, but I'm getting there.

Anywho,  here's a custom I've been working on for the greater part of April and this month. It's a Krath Shocktrooper, featured in the TotJ comic series Dark Lords of the Sith. First things first: his teeth. I know, I just saw that when checking the pics I took. But trust me, from a couple of feet, you won't even notice it!  ;D





And shots of the base and his gear, which is held in place by two pins made of paperclip, that plug into tiny holes in his back  :wink:



As always, thoughts, gripes, critiques, donations, etc. are most welcome!

Wow that is just bad ass at it's most badassyness  :-\
The parts choices are spot on, I see some of the old Clone Wars Mace and Anakin in there and one of the back packs from Mcguire figs. 
This looks really good Incom and with a base to boot.  ;D

Heh, "bad ass" is just what I'm aiming for, Jedipurge  ;D Thanks so much for your comments, man, really appreciate it. I updated my site with this one, and shuffled some pages and pictures around. The full recipe can also be seen there.

Would never have guessed that to be a Mace head. Excellent.

Photography question: What wattage bulbs are you using?

Thanks Darth_Anton. And er...... I just made these pics near my kitchen window, without any additional lights. It was around 3.30 pm and the skies were clear blue  ;D I used a lightblue A3 sized paper sheet as a backdrop. I took the pics two stept underexposed and corrected that in PS Elements.

That explains the beautiful color saturation.
