Well, I'll be doing two this month - one nemiodian (I know they aren't supposed to count  :-[) and one non-nemoidian (so I obey the rules  ;)). 

I've already got things cooking on my 'frog, I started him while working on my other "blue harvest" entry last night (which of course isn't finished yet  ::)).

You know, I wonder what a Galactic Lawyer would look like... for some reason I envision grand robes and colorful trappings and wigs ala English Common Law...

As for my frog, I'll try to get a good shot of him tonight to submit as a final. I also want to touch up just a couple of problems I've seen with him.

From there I have some old Bossks that need to become something other than Bossk...sounds like as good an excuse as any... :p

I made a self-custom journeyman protector for the Self-customs challenge a while ago and I plan on posting a picture of him in his full mandalorian armour for this month's submission. I may post it up early for the sake of updating my customs thread, however. If I do so, I'll probably make another custom and post THAT one at the end of the month.

Man!  I had really wanted to do this challenge - so many ideas!  I even bought parts a while ago (whever the idea for the organic separatists came about).  I will definitely try to finish acquiring the parts and hopefully I'll be able to make a few dirty Seps!
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.

Ok, I'm going to update with one entry of my own already, but before than I thought it would be fun to take a look at something that Owen D. made for me a while back, and use it for inspiration -

Quarren Separatsits by Owen D -



These are such awesome figures and I think a great way to kick off some inspiration for this month's challenge.



Also, I decided to add in an early entry -

Teemoure - Trandoshan sympathizer for the Separatist cause

Thanks Kit. 

We have a slow month here last month, so I'm trying to kickstart this month.  We all need a kick in the butt.   :)

I made two Separatists tonight... they were actually hard to make.  Had a lot of trouble, but I like the end result - two Weequay Separatist Troops.

1. Great use of parts on those Weequay. I love the helmets.

2. I really like the use of the droid blasters. It makes too much sense to not use those blasters. (I also like using Grievous' blaster for seps).

3. I'll bet you can't wait to get your hands on the Weequay Jedi :)

Nice work, CHEWIE.

Thanks In Rem.  And I can't wait for the Sora Bulq.  It looks like a great figure for customizing.

So, what's the scoop with everyone else's customs for this month's challenge?

Hey CHEWIE.

This monthly challenge is such a cool idea.

My life is too hectic right now for customizing, but when things settle down for me a bit, is it okay if I submit for previous challenges retroactively?  ;)

Of course you can add onto the previous months.   ;)

Fritzkrieg, I love your Trandoshan.  It almost looks like an Unleashed figure.  So well done, and I can't wait to see what new figure you might make for this.

I'd love to see a fight between those Weequay Soldiers and that Trandoshen Merc!
