Finally done with this guy.  Took a while to do his belt spat thingies, and just generally finish up.  Now that I've taken the final pics, I noticed I need to do some touch-up painting, and paint some smaller details on his wrist gauntlets and rifle.  Without further ado:





And a WIP shot.  The AOTC helmet was made removable using Glassman's technique (you rock Glass!), and I think it looks better than Hasbro's removable helmet.



P.S. - Replace the word "Sculpy" with "Fixit."  It's late, it's Friday, and I'm a tad tipsy...

This is my version of Ordo, phase II+.  The plus sign is because of the more betterer stuffs I done added to him.

That's too much-too much cool that is  ;D  Wow if you could mass produce something like this I'd buy 'em all.  Great stuff.

Thanks for the compliments guys.  Always great to hear your work appreciated.

I've made molds for the helmets, weapons, pauldron, and guns, so making more isn't a materials problem.  It's more a matter of how long it takes to sculpt such small accessories on a figure.  I have 1 more in the works, and may do more in the future.

You mean the one with the AOTC helmet on?  If so, then no.  That one will be sold as well.  I'm working on some different leg bindings for him, and other various stuff that I haven't quite fleshed out yet in my mind.

Not yet.  My boys told me they want one each, so before one goes to me, they'll get one.

Ruprecht, did you use the same kama on Frodo Fordo as on Mereel or your earlier blue ARC? (i.e. the type you received from Outrider).

Yes I did.  He sent me a bunch of pre-cut ones, but they were too small for the look I was going for.  So I used the rectangular bit he sent me to cut them out.

It's some really thin suede, but Paul (Outrider) couldn't remember what brand they were or where he got them.

I'll have to go to the market someday to see if I can find anything like that. I got some other kamas from him a while ago, with the sewn edges. Too bad it appears he's out of the costumizing scene... Hmm, maybe a piece of chamois leather would work too.
