here are a few pic's of my imperial gunship. My wife actually helped me paint the base black, so I will give her 10% credit for her part (she was busy with other things) I wanted to have a sorta war torn at-at /at-st type finish to it and think I sorta achieved that. Let me know what you guys think!

I really like the death squad and Tarkin, and gree's posse... Nice work

hey thanks for the comments, I will get some better/ brighter pictures...

quote:Commando-esque Clone - Great parts here, what head is that?  Looks very well painted.

I used the gunship pilot helmet that came with the evolution packs, I removed the hose and repainted it. The body is a standard #41... I made this because I was having such a hard time getting a scorch.

I love the Jedi w/ Anakin's charred head...very cool!

Thanks, I am actually thinking of converting this into a q-vos. I also want to change the boots, I used the obi pilot feet. I will get a better pic..

thanks for hosting them dsj

Ok first one is a pod pilot/ clone pilot mix
I used a pod pilot as the base figure, painted the clone evolutions helmet orange over the yellow and painted the gloves and boots grey, I then dry brushed it black so it would look beat to hell.

The second one was a #41 desert camo repaint,  I had to pait the base beige then added 2 tones of brown, white and black to give it the camo finish.

The 3rd was a cheezy wookiee in dark trooper armour, its simply a preview head that I used to make my own version of Snoova, I am planning on replacing the dark trooper bucket.

The 2 astromech droids are made from the desert deluxe r2 that I found a collectables store and paid a whopping $1 for. They have the beeps and whisles still and were my first droid repaints.

the sith lord is the catina guys head swapped with the cw sasee tinns head. I really like the combionation of the body with this head as my version of a sith lord.

the next one is a sote luke in imperial discise that I wanted to capture a republic commando look to, again another of my favorite POTF2 figs that has some great customizing possibilities.

The UGH minis are for my son, he say that I had one that I used as trade bait and really wanted the chrome finish mini that was inside. I promised that I would lmake him one and one turns into many as you all know.

The 5o1 are #41 repaints, I am not a big fan of Hasbro's version and have only ever seen 1 at retail. I am happy with them and decided like many to leave off the leg stripes..

Anyone else hate the finish on the EU spacetrooper? I am not a big fan of the pearl white finish and I started to experiment with black and a chrome, chainmail, gunbarrel type finish. I like the technique I used so much that I have painted many figures in the manner and like the way it captures the detail on the figures.

The wokkiee jedi is another figure that I made for my son, I used the playschool lukes poncho and the preview wookiee with the transformer luke x-wings saber. He loves it, so I thought that I would pimp it for him..

I hope that you guys enjoy these and I will be making more and have many more already completed or in the final stages.

I can't post them here, there is nothing in the additional options to allow me to post them, unless someone wants to host them for me?

pm sent and I hope that you make many more figures in this style, like the imperial uniforms in the OT were not directly inspired by nazi uniforms! outrider make all the customs you want to make in the style you want to make them, you are talented and insperational. I like your customs, nice to see something other then clones for like the past year ( I am not taking a shot at clone customs either as I like them "a lot" and have made many myself)

That ship reminds me of the ships on the new battlestar galaxtica a bit, good use of vehicle fodder, impressive!

you have a PM regarding scorch. Thx

hey hemble, I am geeked at that batman, nice work indeed. I have sorta been on a batman rebirth since I picked up my son one of the lego sets, they did a really good job on the dark knight. I saw your Star Gate custom as well, nice work. They were filming star gate beside my work on Fri, I live in North Vancouver and see many production crews and occasionally an actor or a scene being filmed. Its funny when you see them on the big screen and how they are always trying to make Vancouver appear to be New York or L.A. Priceless.

Saga Collection '06 / Re: two left feet?
« on: May 7, 2006, 02:36 PM »
I have had 2 figures with 2 of the same feet...
Black clone pilot (the only one I ever found at retail :( ) and a agen koler (sp?)
I have had a couple figures since the introduction of all the new articulation thats the joints are somewhat fused and I have broken parts handling them, most notably the CW kit fisto (foot) and aurra sing (shoulder). The attactix's suck beyond my words too, my son loves to play with them but I find that I am either crazy gluing pieces back on or returning them to retail all to often. the person in charge of quality control at Hasbro needs a frozen puck in the junk as a wake up call IMO.
