That didn't come out too bad, though!

Maybe if you do a basecoat of black and then gauze over the olive green?

It has some mass to it (from the look of the pic anyway)...

Is she getting a softgoods skirt of any kind? The pelvis on the micro lady always strikes me as... well... odd :)

This is coming along beautifully.

OK, bear with me folks.

This is a concept battle droid I've been wanting to do since I got this Xevoz kit .

I shuffled up some parts, added some bits and pieces from some model kits and some fine wire, and modded the blaster, took out the legs, and added a neck extension and here we are...

I envision this being the droid equivalent of Grievous. No biological components, but very amorphous and able to twist and such. :)

Instead of legs he has repulsorlifter panels that he floats about on. He can aim them in any direction to create thrust. He can also reverse the panels to fasten himself fast to most surfaces.

I know it's kind of cheezy, but I think once I paint him up he'll make for a fun addition to my droid army.

FYI, he's about shoulder-high to a Clone Trooper when he's standing flat, so he's pretty massive. The blaster is definitely a BFG.

at rest

airborne and fighting

evasive maneuvers

Comments are welcome :P

Tinn looks great, but I REALLLLLLLLY like that paint scheme. Never seen someone paint them like that before. May have to steal that from ya  ;)

Thanks! I'll look forward to seeing what you do. :)

The material on the torso looks great. I think you're right that you need a better solution for that arm - it looks like she's wearing a heavy jacket.

Good luck with the gauze!

If you can somehow get the mouthpiece off a clone pilot i think it'll be perfect.

My thoughts exactly! :)

Phruby -

I wonder if you could paint through some gauze, then lift the gauze off while the paint is still wet, to give a stencil effect that would have some depth? That way the sleeve would be *very* fitted?

This is coming along beautifully. Sorry I haven't commented to that effect before.

Bravo, man. Bravo! Perfect transitional chapter from the most recent episode with the BC to political intrigue and deception!

1. Nice touch keeping a black eye on RE. It's a detail that is easy to ignore in production, but it gives the story a temporal grounding, and you know as well as anyone that with the layoff between chapters that kind of grounding is critical.

2. I must have missed that Rodian Senator. Dead perfect.

3. Good job having Palpatine twist RE's heroism into a breach of duty. Sounds just like something he'd do! I also like that RE only initially resisted the order of leave. I don't think I could have believed that he would - after what he just went through - fight too hard against a return to Naboo.

4. Nice placement of the fledgling Rebellion in the bar. And nice work keeping it as brief as you did.

5. Your Twi'lek spy placement was great. Great work on that figure, and great work in getting her into the story.

6. The interaction of RE and co. with Valorum was very well executed. I liked that Kala seemed very in tune with Valorum's misgivings while Freelo was clueless. RE's coming around to just how serious Valorum's tone was seemed very realistic... almost like RE was tempted to just be selfish and say "not my problem" before breaking down and asking Valorum to call him on Naboo. I also like that Valorum is breaking down more and more... it's like he's losing faith in what is right, and the manners are the first casualty.

7. The after-action scenes with GG and the BDs are perfect, and really look like the aftermath of a terrible defeat for the Republic. The Dooku holo shots came out perfectly. Convo between Dooku and GG was also dead on.

8. This cracked me up, mostly b/c it sounds like an adapted Busch beer ad: "After all, the taste of quality beer can make any man want to head for the mountains of Naboo."  ;D

CHEWIE, I know you get nothing but praise for these, but do know it's well-deserved. I do my best to give a very critical eye, as I hope for the same from others. I just can't find much in the way of problems! You not only deliver the goods each and every time you post, but you seem to get better and better. Maybe the new live action series for TV will bring you in to consult or something...

There are a few typos:

 - "With the war effort now being concentrated against the Confederacy, the Badoo Corba had become an afterthought to the military; free to gain strength and was no longer vulnerable."

The last "was" is out of place there. " to gain strength and no longer vulnerable"

-"But what did you hope accomplish?" ; " accomplish?"

Again, CHEWIE, awesome work!

Thanks, jedipurge.

I'd love to use a Clone Wars head there, but I never even saw the CW S.T. or Kit Fisto. :)

And unless S.T. got some surgery before EIII, the broken horn is a problem. :P I personally like the broken horn look, but I guess GL didn't want to see one of the Masters suffering any damage...

As for the unit markings, I just throw the paint around. It's a lot of trial and error. ;)

Thanks again!

Heh... not trying to starve you. :)

Thanks for the nice response, Quazar. I think I'll be able to get more shots done in the next few nights. The problem is I keep expanding things, and there is a LOT of chit chat for chapter 3 (introductions, conversations about Suud and Sedo and blah blah blah...). Not a ton of action.

I feel like I'm spending a ton of time and effort building a base of characters without giving much in the way of action to keep things exciting.  :-\

Oh well... I hope you guys will hang in there. :)

Thanks, PenDragon -

The lights-through-the-fog is so easy I'm almost embarrassed to use it so liberally.  :-[ It does work out OK here, though. Thanks for noticing.

I was very skeptical about the light green color, but then I slapped it on this Clone...

...a while back and he quickly became one of my favorites. When I started figuring out a way to bolster ST's appearance in KOE, I opted to tie ST to that paint scheme.

The soft goods cape was generously contributed by Gregorbian. I wasn't sure about it, but I really, REALLY like the figure more with this cape. The rubber cape was donated to the Clone, and I think it works better on him (the helmet conceals the neckhole, so it looks more cohesive than it did on ST.

Anyway, thanks for the feedback. :)

Here's an update on Tiin, complete with a soft goods Dooku cape courtesy of our own Gregorbian.

I also gave him a color scheme and a matching Clone. :P

And here's a KOE Chapter 3 preview for kicks:

You have the Separatist leadership dynamic down PERFECTLY. I enjoyed every bit of this update, but your treatment of Dooku and Grievous is *awesome*.

I can hear them both like they were popping out of a film!

Nice progress with your story. I'm looking forward to seeing how things develop next time. :)

I like that the lines on the face are not perfect. It looks more natural.

Brilliant work. Thanks for sharing it here.  8)
