I love it!   ;D
Perfect level of detail on him.  It looks just as good, if not better, than the original pieces.  Keep it up!

I agree totally.  Splendid work Dimetrodon!  It really is nice to see variety too, which is what your customs are all about.   :)

An EMP Trooper from the Battlefront Game. I used an Aerial Clone Captain mini to make it for the most part, and a jango jet pack to finish it off. I had to completely detach the Clone Captain from his old jet pack, but it all came out ok I think. I was a little bit lazy and just repainted over the existing red lines rather than a whole repaint.  :P

But when you look at the actual tiny mini, it all looks normal  ;D





here is the original Aerial Clone Captain I used.



Here is a General Veers I retooled also. I jus tgave him new arms from an Imperial Officer.

EDIT: I have also taken new (better?) pictures

So...cool... ;D
I like the new Battlefront Jetpack Clone Trooper!  I've made a few of these guys using the basic figures ;)  I also like the new pic of the ARC Trooper, I can make out a lot more of the details.
Damn man, you're making me want to start painting miniatures again.... :P

Thanks!
I was actually inspired to make my EMP trooper because of the one I saw you make. That, and they were great in the game.

Here is one more I just did. A late night custom. I guess it can be called a head swap/repaint.

Nikto Marksman



here is the original figure. A rodian mercenary



And lastly, another Jet clone, but this time on the ground. I'm not completely happy with him it. I probably should have chosen a different clone as the base figure.

Your paintjob on the Nikto Marksmen is leagues above the original paint job!  Very well done!  That aerial clone jetpack looks weird (I know that's how they made it), too bad they didn't give him a Jango jet pack like your other Battlefront clone!  :P

Just took pictures of these. Some stuff I was working on slowly during some sleepless nights.
Nothing spectacular but I had fun with them. I have some more that will be done not too soon from now, so sit tight.


Rebel Commando, Officer

This guy is made from a Captain Antilles Figure and the head left over from my previous Gran figure, which was made from an Endor Trooper. I don't really like how the camo deco came out but it does give the desired effect. any pointers would be welcomed.

edit: ugh.. i just noticed a splotch on his boot.. I can't believe I missed that.. gah..





IG-72

Simply a repaint, all i did was snip part of 88's cone from the top of his head  :P



Speeder

I was limited by which mini I could put into the speeder based upon their stance, and how they were holding a gun and various other factors. This guy had a pretty neutral pose so I chose him to tool up a bit. He has his hand on the stick shift (is that what it is in SW?) and arm resting on the edge. I pretty much made it as background fodder for dioramas.

Sweet update Dimetrodon!


Rebel Commando -

Very nice.  You've really divulged into a of variety on these.  Usually I consider their cloaks to be green, but if they're not in a forest environment, your paint scheme makes sense.

IG-72 -

Nice job, I might paint his strap black.

Landspeeder -

Now this is cool because it adds a cool vehicle.  If you get another one of these landspeeders, I would suggest painting it greenish grey and add on a cannon.  Then you've got a military speeder.


Fun stuff Dimetrodon.  And good luck with those sleepless nights.   :(

 :P

I love that Rebel Commando Officer!  Great paint job on the cloak.
The landspeeder driver looks very natural, nice pose. 

You're making me want to start painting Warhammer figures again!  ;)

I based the Commandos cloak on the Endor Luke scheme, because its rarely seen. The head isn't even glued on yet, hehe, I have to buy more  glue, I might repaint the helmet too.

Sweet update Dimetrodon!

Thanks! I do have another Landspeeder like that one but Plan to keep it as is, because it's the only other I have. But in the new minis set they put out a FLash Speeder with 2 Naboo drivers. looks nice.

I have been up for a good while now and will be going to sleep soon, hopefull waking up in the morning at a decent hour and then henceforth every day.
