Seeing that Month #6 - BLUE HARVEST is nearing an end, I thought we could start discussing more about Month #7...

What is the consensus on this?  Are we going to work on organic Separatist Troops?  What other suggestions do we have?

 :P

So, I take it you are going to join in on it?

I believe we had some other ideas too... what the heck were they?  This one stuck out in my mind.  But if there are others, let's discuss them.   :)

Yeah, non-droids.  We had also thought about not letting them be Nemoidians either.  Maybe some Quarren Squidheads or something.  Or Trandoshans, or even humans fighting against the Republic.

I vote for Non-Nemoidian as well. They need some sort of variety in the Seppie ranks. :)

Here's a WIP shot:

In Rem - I like the start of that custom, he looks more "down and dirty" than other Neimoidians.

In Rem ... Quasi In Rem ... In Personam ... AHHHHHHHHHH! (1L here)  ;)
The scariest thing that I've ever seen,
Is the terrible AT-AT walking machine.
It's as big as a house on walking legs,
and whatever it steps on it crushes like eggs.

Thanks. I slapped some paint on him last night and I need to post pics. I repainted his coat black, the helmet gray, gave him nemoidian hands, and repainted all the flesh a darker green with a black wash... he looks a *lot* more down and dirty now.

And I'm not sure if I should congratulate or pity you at this point. I was just recently sworn in, so Law School is thankfully a memory for me now :-). First year is as hard as it gets until you start practicing, but I'm sure by now you know that.

Where are you enrolled? I'm a Gator.

I can't wait to see the finished version of that Neimoidian!

School is insane so far (as such, I haven't been able to do a custom in over a month  :'().  My life these days exists exclusively of reading cases and writing memos...
I go to Rutgers Camden Law School.  I'm not familiar with "Gator" although I'm sure I should be...  :-\

Gator = University of Florida (undergrad and law) :)

Get used to that life, and plan to work like that this summer wherever you go. Do yourself a favor and work this summer... you need to stay in the habit from now on :)

I almost ended up in the NE for law school. Being a Florida boy, that cold weather would likely have killed me...

I'm about to post pics of my Nemoidian along with some pics of a custom Clone Unit I've been working on.

How about some custom Coruscant Lawyers for a future customs challenge?   ;)

I'm looking forward to seeing your finished Nemoidian.  I think we were just looking for some Separatist that Hasbro hasn't made any of yet, which is why we were leaning towards other species.  But yours can be the first kick-off entry for it.

For this month's challenge, I think I am gonna be really into it.  I'm going to try and create everything in two's - two of each kind of troop that I make.  I'd like to make at least three different kind of troops, which means at least six figures.
