And here I thought your first Obi-Wan in Clone Armor was cool! ;D

I've noticed these bases that you've used over an over with your figures. I saw a post where you said they're from "a 2 dollar store."

Are these plates/dishes of some sort?

What store do you mean?

I started seeing your work over at the Custom Alliance but it's just wonderful to see it here too.

This stuff is just amazing.  8)

Hi Guys

Thanks for the kind words I really appreciate them and another 6-7 weeks I'll have the internet up and running so I'll more regular postings.

Happy Noodle Boy - I buy the bases at a shop called Crazy Clints it's a shop where you can get things really cheap or a shop called Lincraft it's a craft and material shop and the bases are actually chip wood.

Cheers
Ron

Hi All

Here is another trooper I finished around the same time as Obi in clone armour enjoy

RECON TROOPER
Head - Stormtrooper helmet cut and modified and the head underneath is a seals head.
Legs and Arms - Stormtrooper's
Body - Biker Scout
Shoulder Pad - SandTrooper
Cloak - CloneTrooper

He was given a wash of Matt black and then wiped cleaned and once dried he was painted using Vallejo and Reaper miniature paints. The base is from a 2 dollar store and a mixer of static grass and kitty litter was mixed together and then glued over the top of plaster of Paris which was painted dark brown.

Very cool re-con trooper. I wonder though if a re-con trooper would wear a color less conspicuous than sky blue. ;)

Cheers.

Amazing work.

Love how you modified the stormie helmet.

Excellent idea on the different weapons in his gear. Rifle for probing missions and the mid-sized blaster for close quarter and finally the pistol for the "Oh my god all my other weapons are empty and now I have this little pea shooter"!

Great weathering. These washes really do the job.

I'd like to see more of these modified ideas (i.e. helmet, hoses, etc).  ;D

Hi All

Well I'm leave again for the easter break so I took pics of my lastest custom let me know what you think.

RECIPE
Body - New white Endor Rebel soldier
Rifle - Is parts from different weapons which were cut of and added until I got the desired look.
Helmet and blaster - votc Stormtrooper helmet
base - Plastic fish tank plants, railway shrubs and dirt from the back yard.

The figure was given a wash of matt black and then he was repainted using Dark greens, browns, tans and khaki's to get the desired effect and the paints used were Reaper and Vallejo paints.

My goodness, Ron.

You really do work miracles at this scale.  The paint work is worthy of a 1/6 scale statue, and the modifications you make are always so realistic and sensible.  That Recon stormtrooper is a thing of beauty...seriously, the whole concept and the look of the cutaway helmet is simply phenomenal.  On the rebel trooper, again you prove how effective a preposed "vignette" can be...the soldier contemplating the helmet is just such a great scene that raises all kinds of questions...you manage to tell a story and infuse the figures with such life and realism.

Fantastic.
