Ok. Here is my latest custom figure. I call this one a Twi'lik warrior.

NICE work with the tats!

I Think this is the tribal dude from the Pirates line? Very cool work on it, M_P! But I have to agree that the face from that one looks a little androgynous...

Very, very neat & original, Phruby!  It's rare -- and very cool -- to see a Twi'lek that's not the usual dancer/slave/cute chick variety.  (For that reason, you should make it a he!  :D )  Great job with the tattoos and the overall "tribal" look.

Thanks guys. Let's put it this way. Twi'liks males are typically ugly looking (ie Bib Fortuna) while females are typically beautiful and sexy (ie. Oola) unless of course they are related to George Lucas. I'd put this one as a male warrior. But I'm afraid to look under the loin cloth to find out.  :o

Don't look under the loincloth, Phruby! That's where madness lies.

Great looking Twi'lek, and a really creative use of a figure I'd never given a second thought.

Im really likeing this one M_P. I really like the tats. I cant tell that they are stickers. About the only thing that I waould change is by making the Lekku a little longer, but other thatn that I think it looks awesome.

It's good to see you back in the game again. ;) ;D

That Twi'lik warrior is top notch Paul. I think it's one of your best pieces. And thanks for the Jerjard repaint picture. I may have to do the same, however, I may remove the rank all together.

Thanks guys. He was a fun figure to make. I may have to make the tails longer. I just wanted to make sure the head still turned.

That is incredible Phruby!!

That is a Pirates of the Carribean Cannibal Chief.

Thanks a ton Paul! I picked up an extra Jerjerrod and painted him black. (Left the rank on though.) Previous figures I've painted I used Testors flat. I'm sure everyone knows that their flats still leave a glossy sheen. I went to the hobby shop and they helped me pick a new brand, Tamiya Acrylic. Couldn't be more pleased with the result.

I love Tamiya Acrylic. I use it exclusively for all my customs. The only problem is the smell of paints makes my wife instantly throw up. So its been hard to get more painting done.  :-\ I can't wait until this kid is born, then I can get back to painting.

Sorry to hijack your thread Paul but I wanted to chime in.  I use Games Workshop and Reaper paints.  Hemble turned me on the Reaper ones and their "Master" series are just outstanding.  I haven't tried Tamiya yet.

Those are excellent paints too. GW has lots of different shades and is great for small detail work.
