That Visor is Sweet And The Orange Paint is Spot on. Did you mix the color yourself or was it off the shelf? I wish Mine Came out so well

You do Great Work, Keep it Commin!


Thanks for all the Great feedback Guys!

This was a tuff one. It took me a while to figure out which parts would work best for this Custom since the only peice of the TIE Pilot I had to work w/ was the helmet.

I sorted through hundred of Figures and Parts in my Fodder Bin and Finally Chose the Following Parts for the Recipe.

Helmet>Saga TIE Pilot
Body>AOD Deadite
Jack Boots> POF2 Garidan
Chest Plate>Baroness Chest Armor Packed w/ Spy Troops Lady Jay
Chest Box>Kit Bashed from COPRPS Assessorie
Air Hoses>Various Chap Mei Space Quest Figs.
Belts & Straps>Spy Troops Sgt. Air Borne & a Heavy Machine  Gun  amo belt.
Left Glove>Billy from JP
Ragged Flight Suit>You Don't want to know
Imperial Shoulder Patch>Erikstormtrooper's Imperial Gallery

1st  Hollowed out the Helmet w/ Dremel
2nd  Cut the Blast Hole and cracks in Helmet w/  Exato Blade
3rd  Super Glued Air Hose to Helmet
4th Positioned Deadite Skull in Helmet
5th Ground the Breast off The Baroness Chest Plate w Dremel
6th Cut CORPS Space Assessorie to Desired Size w/ Wife's Meat Cleaver for Chest box
7th Super Glued Chest Box to Chest Plate
8th Drilled 2 Holes Into Chest Box for Air Hoses
9th Super Glued Air Hoses into Holes in Chest Box
10th Cut Feet and Left Arm of of Deadite w/ Exacto Blade
11th Cut G/aridans Boots Off w/ Exacto Blade
12th Cut Left Glove off of JP Billy w Exacto blade
13th Dremeled Holes Into boots and Gloves Large Enough to fit Deadite's Stubs
14th Pushed Glove and Boots Onto Deadite's Stubs ( If the Holes are Just right no Glue is needed to keep the gloves and Boots on)
15th Apply Shredded Cloth to Deadite Body useing Superglue
16th Super Glue Straps to Deadite Body
17th Primer Chest Plate and Chest Box Piece and let Dry (You may Skip this Step but I did it Because the Chest Box, Chest Plate and Hoses were all different colors and wanted them to come out More uniform in color after painting w/out using to many coats)
18th Put Chest Plate Piece on Deadite Body It should fit Snug and not Require any Glue
19th Place Insignia Sticker on Shoulder that still has Some of the Flight suit Covering it
20th Paint to Desired Level of Detail

I hope this is Helpful

Here is my first Custom of 06'

Remeber that scene in "The Empire Strikes Back",when that Poor TIE Pilot is sent Hurdleing, On Fire, through Space after his Fighter is Destroyed by an Asteroid. Well this is that Guy. LMK what you think.

I plan on getting the 1st Chapter of my Photo Novel Series finished.
Here's a preview pic

I'll be making a Ton of Customs for this series as well as some Stuff Just for Kicks.

You are deffinately Tops in the Paint department. Are the Iron Man and the Captain America the 4" Scale figs or the Marvel Legends Figs. I Can't tell from the Pics. Either way they look great.

Keep up the Great Work :)

Great Idea w/ those Modular Sets. I have a little background in Theater Set Design and we did this all the time for Plays. Alot of time we would paint the Backside of our peices to look like a totally different enviroment. I've been doing all my Photo Novel Work on a Green Screen and Photo shoping in the Enviroments. It's a pain in the u know what.

The Tonika Sister look Great. Excellent Job w/ the hair. Unfortunatly I did'nt have the Fodder to give these a try.

Keep up the Great work :)

Thanks for all the Great feedback guys.

I'm glad you like the Dead Troopers. I've got a bunch more Deadites to work with so you'll see alot of your favorite Army Builder types given the "Dawn of the Dead Treatment".
I've got a TIE Pilot who's Cold Dead Body is Just waiting to be hurdleing through Space. Think the begining of     "Enemy Mind".

I'm kind of sad ??? It looks like these guys are going to the Custom Retirement Bin.

They were some of my more challengeing pieces but now their obsolete.

At least we'll always have room for our Fan Fic. Customs.

I read somewhere the George Lucas Put the Fin on the Clone Armor so it would looked like it was made of metal? The article epxlained that the Clones actually wore metal Armor that was later replace by the Plastisteel worn by Stormtroopers. If I can remeber where I read that I'll let you know. I've read so many things about Clones and Stormtroopers it's hard to remeber what was from what.
You know what I mean?

Judging by what I've seen in the Movies. I'd say the Armour is cast in Metal then coated by a White Ceramic Enamel to give it  enviromental resistant properties. You can see in the pics below of Gree and Cody that where the Armor is heavily damaged the Metalic Coloration of the Armor shows through as seen in Cody's Chest Plate Scar and you can see the White Enamel where the Paint is Chipped on Gree's Shoulder Pads

Just my 2cents worth,

Great Work!

I really love the Rebel Sandy Concept.

The Color Palet you chose is perfect for a Desert Warrior.

The Goggles meld very well w/ the Helmet. It must have been a pain to seperate them from Garidans head.

You've inspired me to give this Concept a Try for myself.

Great work I can't wait to see more,

Thats a great looking set of
Characters you've got there!

I like the color scheme and you did an excellent job on the Pin stripeing.

These Guys remind me of a Very Imperial like Navy that apeared in one of the Old "Battlestar Galactica" Episodes. I can't think of their name but I'll look it up and get back to you on that. What did you use for the shoulder pads?

The Sgt. is my favorite. His Bionic Claw Really gives his Character some history and creates interest. Did you make these guys for a Photo Novel?

The custom weapons are a nice touch. You modified the real world weapons just enough to give them that Star Wars

My only Critique is their Helmets seem to Real World for my taste,  maybey you could modify them. Try adding some antennae, or mabey some type of Crest or Ornament.

Great work can't wait to see more,

Nothing to complicated here. I was just watching my
"Clone Wars" Volume II DVD, I recieved for Christmas and decided to repaint one of my Evolutions Clone Pilot Helmets to ressemble the Bad BLEEP Clone Pilot from the Opening Episode. The hardest part was painting the Bat-like symbol on the Helmet. LMK what you think.

Great Looking Batch you've got there Chewie!

Heldarr- Great looking Goon. The only thing I would change is, mabey add a holster. And those are deffinatly not
 Ki Adi Mudi's Boots. His are much more Buckineerish.

Darth Plageuis-The Best Concept of this Character I've seen so far. Although Jedistyle's suggestion on the Color Change on the Robes to a Purple or Burgundy would be more in-line with Traditional Sith Garb.

Can't Wait for the next Rykroff chapter.
