hey guys time for my 2nd post, this is a repaint i done of a previous custom figure i made. This is a Togruta Jedi from the clone wars era, his back story isnt complete but will be soon. His name is Ngakau meaning Heart in cook island.

So here he is, let me know what you all think, thanks RustysCustoms.

Post by: Rustyscustoms on February 01, 2011, 03:16:10 AM
Im just posting this incase anyone wanted to read the backstory i wrote for this guy.

(http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_QGrsNtuHIds/TQswJYzkVeI/AAAAAAAAAJ4/tYArP0Bs2-g/s1600/SL374700.jpg)

So here is my entry for the geonosis arena competition. And
with any original custom I make I thought this guy needed a back story
that all you readers would enjoy. So I came up with this guy, (I would
like to mention this character is purley fictional and doesn't exist
and his name, backstory and design are of my own ideas) a Kiffu
gaurdian Toorn Vos older brother of Qiunlan Vos and leader of the
Kiffu Gaurdians. Toorn was a fearsome warrior on his homeworld and
said to have been as force senstive as younger brother Quinlan though
he was never taken by the order as he was to old when his abilities
were discovered. When the gaurdians fought off an invasion attempt by
the federation under the lead of Toorn Count Dooku became increasingly
intriuged with the Kiffu. He travelled secretely with his Dark acolyte
Tol Skorr to Kiffu and asked to see Toorn, posing as Jedi the kiffu
gaurds allowed there passage to Toorns Quaters but upon arrival they
killed the gaurds and stormed his room, Vos had sensed them and was
already waiting weapon at the ready, utilizing a specially crafted
cotortis blade passed generation to generation. Skorr attacked and to
dooku's surprise was quickly bested and subdued by Vos. Vos proceeded
to attack dooku but was no match and was rendered unconcious by a
blast of force lighting. After the encounter Dookus faith in Skorr as
a capable acolyte was shaken and he saw potential in Vos as an
acolyte. Upon awakening he found himself in a dark room, a door
infront of him began to open and as he stepped out into a massive
arena loud ominous taunts filled the air. He looked across the arena
to see 5 warriors armed and ready, lead by a large nikto warrior they
began to run at Vos, he reached to his side and to his dismay had an
empty blaster holster, reaching for his blade he prepared, fighting
furiously he vexed opponent after opponent first killing the Nikto
with a quick and precise slice of the throat, fending them off as they
attacked without hesitation, but after only minutes he had emerged
victorious over the five combatants. He walked over to the Niktos
bleeding body the crowd roared for him screaming "gaurdian, gaurdian"
he picked up the niktos weapon and placed it into a strap down his
back and raised his fist in the air, cheers echoed. After the fight
he was met by dooku who gave him a box, Vos opened it to find one of
Dookus lightsabers in it, Dooku said to Vos "prove yourself, and you
will have your freedom", he then asked Vos why he took the Nikto's
weapon, Vos replied simply " my first kill will never be forgotten,
this weapon is a symbol to all I face, there is only death for them
and I will show no mercy". Many weeks in the arena saw Vos undefeated
though it had come with a price, Vos had fallen to the dark ways of
the force calling on anger and fear to fight. 1 long month went by and
Vos remained the gladiator champion, but another had began to earn a
name for himself, Vos was furious that another was earning a name in
his arena and earged dooku to set up the match, the young man he was
non other then QuinLan Vos Toorns brother in disguise. After hearing
of an invincible Kiffu gaurdian on the planet of geonosis he felt it
was Toorn and knew only toorn was capable of being that powerful. They
were to be in the same fight though Toorn knew not of the deception
nor did Dooku, but seeingy himself as virtually unbeatable he was now
a force to fear in the arena. The battle began and many enemies
circled Toorn now with large wages on his head to be killed many tried
but all failed, now using Dookus saber he cut down enemy after enemy
until there were only two. His glance firm across the arena at the
assailant, they began to run at each other and at the last second
Quinlan pulled out his saber and blocked Toorns attack, Seeing his
face under the hood Toorn was shocked. They stopped where toorn
expressed his remorse for his ways and dealings with the dark side but
Quinlan spoke these words " You are not dark my brother, simply deeper
in the shadows, and I will be your light in these times" Dooku looked
on but before another move was made they were on the run out of one of
the arena doors, making there way through the elaberate tunnels they
made there way to Vos's ship and made an escape. They travelled to
Kiffu where Toorn took back his place as general and left behind his
arena days and his legacey and readied for the day the gaurdians would
take up arms and he would once again defend his people.

Thankseveryone. well its morning again 5:38am here in Aus and im up before i go to work, lame. anyways thought i would chuck up a quick post of something and going through my pictures of customs ive posted on my site, i though i might chuck up this guy.  One of my favourite characters and a pretty fun custom to make, pretty easy to get the right parts and the paint scheme isnt to outrageous. so here is...

DARTH DESOLOUS DARK LORD OF THE SITH

(http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_QGrsNtuHIds/TR7ymyou5JI/AAAAAAAAAL4/t5hDSVdEJgk/s1600/SL374794.JPG)

After seeing a few customs of this guy here and there over the year, i knew i really wanted to post my own so i got to work and put together desolous here.

hope you guys like him, ill try and post another custom tonight or make early again tomorrow morning.

thanks RustysCustoms

Title: Re: RustysCustoms
Post by: JediMerc on February 01, 2011, 02:18:24 PM
I've seen some of your work on other boards over the Intrawebs and I still like your Toorn Vos: great parts, cool backstory.  I think the repaint of your Togruta jedi looks good, especially with the blue on his headtails--draws attention to him because it doesn't follow the traditional Togruta color scheme we got with Shaak Ti or Ahsoka.  Nice work!   smtie
Title: Re: RustysCustoms
Post by: Rustyscustoms on February 01, 2011, 03:03:36 PM
Thanks man, whats the intrawebs? Where have you seen my eork?
And I did originally keep a traditional headtail look but decided its my custom why not go out of the ordinary :)

Btw I love your jenier custom its pretty cool man thinking about doing my own one day
Title: Re: RustysCustoms
Post by: Clonehead on February 01, 2011, 03:43:03 PM
I believe that's slang for the internet, Rusty. Man, your figures look very cool. So far, I believe that Vos is my favorite. You really go all out on your figures.
Title: Re: RustysCustoms
Post by: Rustyscustoms on February 01, 2011, 05:49:16 PM
Thanks man, wait till tonight im posting 1 of my very favourite customs after I get back from soccer.
And yeh I try to take the time to really make them look as good as I can, still learning new things, and im glad I finally took the time to post here, most interactive custom forum ive seen yet. Plus there is some unreal customs going around here.
Title: Re: RustysCustoms
Post by: Rustyscustoms on February 01, 2011, 10:54:45 PM
Heres a little something just before i leave for soccer.  The idea behind this guy was for him to be a front line general, one who lead on the front lines. took a bit of work but i really liked how it turned out and am pretty happy all round with him.

So here is my MANDALORIAN CAPTAIN

Title: Re: RustysCustoms
Post by: Rustyscustoms on February 02, 2011, 01:06:11 AM
This is a custom inspired by Jackoftradze one of my real influences in this hobby.

JEDI MASTER DOOKU.

A little bit of soft goods changing and a custom head and bam, a decent looking custom jedi Dooku
Title: Re: RustysCustoms
Post by: JediMerc on February 02, 2011, 05:49:57 AM
Rusty--I saw Toorn Vos on your site linked through Yakface.    The Mando is outstanding...nice use of the GIJoe Dr. Rex claws for shoulder armor and that silver/gold paint app works really well for this guy. 
Title: Re: RustysCustoms
Post by: darknsour on February 02, 2011, 05:51:55 AM
Love the Mando Capt.
Love the young  Dooku!!!

Great jod on both of them!!!

Hello Rusty, and sorry I have been missing out here. I am a bit late to the party but I really like your work. The Sith from TFU is very nicely done. Love the front line Mando General, great parts mix and painting. I would like to see the tubes on his backpack hooked up to his face mask. I think it would add a touch of realism to the custom. Also great job on Jedi Dooku!
Title: Re: RustysCustoms
Post by: Rustyscustoms on February 02, 2011, 11:55:22 AM
yeh me to the original mando had had those breathing tubes coming from his mask but unfortunately i cut them off whilst making this got to the end and realized i wanted them back, this afternoon when im back from work ill have a look at it for you and see what i can do =D

Well anyways its 5:40am im tired i go to work soon, but it seems im always making time to get on here now haha, so while im on ill post up another custom. this guy is probably my favourite custom ive made along with Toorn Vos and also a favourite character, i dont know why but you see very few around (probably because the part combos arent your everyday ones and are harder to put together) and i think i done this guy to a pretty good standard. this custom took me a faily long time to make, especially the head. as it was my first time using a bit of putting and sculpting but i think this guy came together with great prowess. so without further banter here is...

DARTH MALAK

(http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_QGrsNtuHIds/TUmnFesmbhI/AAAAAAAAANU/cPeazgb_QMY/s1600/SL375106+-+Copy.JPG)

One of my all time favourite characters Malak was nothing less then badass, wreckless, powerful and a great leader he was a force to fear in his day. rarley copping crap from anyone except that time Revan cut his jaw off for getting up in his grills, or the time revan killed him but still Malak is and was an awesome character so i had to make a custom of him.

Title: Re: RustysCustoms
Post by: Art deWhill on February 03, 2011, 12:39:03 PM
Hey Rusty, its 8:30 pm here in Germany, and cold outside, but no snow. So to me AUS is really upside down to my place ;) still working on current commissions and got two new ones, so you can say I have a lot of excitement and fun :)
Title: Re: RustysCustoms
Post by: Rustyscustoms on February 03, 2011, 01:56:27 PM
Awww man im jelous id love some cold right now, I know what commisions are but who do you do them for, I dont know if im good enough to yet anyway I dnt really know the standard of work you need to produce.

Just a general question to all who read, would anyone buy a custom Toorn Vos like my other one I put up here, or would anyone want to buy and of my other customs? Not selling just wondering...
Title: Re: RustysCustoms
Post by: Art deWhill on February 03, 2011, 02:07:44 PM
but who do you do them for...

well, I do them for those who request one (haha) seriously, my clients are customizer, modelkit builder, cosplayer...  I also do works for fanclub magazines in Germany and Belgium, I even got commissioned by Hasbro Germany to do a advertisement for a new TCW wave last year.

and a standard of work you are thinking about is relative, remember: there is always a bigger (better) fish so everything counts is the question: is there a client out there who likes your work and is he willing to accept your prize tag or trade conditions.

Awww man im jelous id love some cold right now, I know what commisions are but who do you do them for, I dont know if im good enough to yet anyway I dnt really know the standard of work you need to produce.

Just a general question to all who read, would anyone buy a custom Toorn Vos like my other one I put up here, or would anyone want to buy and of my other customs? Not selling just wondering...

so how did you get involved with it? Especially the magazines sounds awsome

people just ask  ;D  then we talk about the subject/theme and technique/style, if both parties agree then we talk about the trade deal ;)
there are two ways regarding the magazines: I just send in some works and introduce them to the chief editor, hoping he like and take them, sometimes I got request "hey, we would like you to do the cover for issue #59..." or so. Yes, that is all pretty awesome :)

Green Company 41st Elite Corps

These customs are an elite part of that faction and completely fanmade and ficticious, lead by Jedi Knight Bolda Deray, a young jedi born on the planet of Dantooine he was discovered by the jedi order at a very young age in an orphange, he began serving as the leader of the elite green company unit the 41st known to most as The Rishi Renegades after there amazing skill at the battle on the planet Rishi. After many succesful missions together they formed a closer bond then most squads and for this were seen by other squads and jedi alike as different, Bolda use to refer to them as his brothers and they all shared a bond of having no parents and it made them much closer as a squad. The team also conisisted of Veteran clone commander and heavy Gunner DD-2049 known as Grey, light infantry gunner RR-1002 known as tankbuster, Elite sniper and scout TT-5006  know as Ghost and Clone technician and weapons expert WW-5109 known as Cutter.

When order 66 was given, in a shocking turn the clones told Bolda of there orders and refused to fire on him, instead helping him escape off planet to tatooine, they then returned to corrasant and gave there generals the news of his death. they were split up into different sqauds and sent out to hunt jedi. There will be more to these tales as i am beginning to write them.

TO BE CONTINUED
The Rishi Renegades

I see, well I do it all digitally so am sure the wrong guy to talk about weathering the real thing, just know the theory. but I remember some tutorials somewhere here in the threads...

cool, well i might hunt around and have a look for them, i imagine wraithe will have something up in his post about it, because i was going to do it but stopped because i didnt want to wreck my figures with bad weathering, but if i learn how to do it well ill go back and fix them up. =D

i cant believe i finally caved and did a squad Art, its all these squads and troopers they got to me, and i even started working on a Commando Today, hes coming along great actually for a first time.

haha so you are infected by troopers, too LOL
well, they are a big part of the SW Saga and doing them broadens up the skills and possibilites, adding them to Sith or Jedi masters or else... I them a lot, doing military gears and scenerys, but I also enjoy characters like your Toorn, figures with some fantasy touch and swords and stuff and of course hot chicks like Aayla ;D

I haven't spent much time at all focusing on troopers, but the design scheme and colors is getting me inspired to take some of the 100+ clones/stormies out of their box and actually put them to good use.  Nice job on all, especially the Jedi commander and, of course, the awesome chest design on Cutter!

Title: Re: RustysCustoms UPDATE: 1ST CLONE TROOPER SQUAD NEW!!!
Post by: Clonehead on February 06, 2011, 05:19:37 AM
I too like the emblem on cutter and think that you did well on your first clones.

I understand why you are nervous about the weathering thing as it seems almost inexcusable sometimes to detract from a good set of factory markings on a figure but as it adds to the realistic look of a figure it becomes great fun.

The most basic forms of weathering come as techniques known as a wash and drybrushing.
Title: Re: RustysCustoms UPDATE: 1ST CLONE TROOPER SQUAD NEW!!!
Post by: Rustyscustoms on February 06, 2011, 05:40:12 AM
Well im not to familar  with the wash technique I do use alot of dry brushing (i used it on almost all of these guys weapons and I use it a fair bit in general, so tomorrow I might have a go at some weathering. What colours are good to use, browns snd greens maybe... & maybe some grey?

Yeh with darth predator I tried to keep that predator jungle look going but your right a actual predator 3 3/4 preator sith would look unreal, do they make them in that size

I am not sure.  I have seen some 33/4 predators online but cannot tell if they were customs or not.  I would have to say probably not.  But you can make your own!!  Clonesniper78 did it with a POC firefly head and a kit fisto head glued together.  He has a vid of it on youtube.  He is AZmarinesniper on youtube.  I made one after his formula.  I thought you could use that barechested Darth Maul body and that head combo and boom add some accessories and you have it!

Here is his vid if you want to check it out:

THAT PREDATOR IS AMAZING! i think im in love haha.

anyhoo time for a new post me thinks, back to my normal stuff this is my fanmade MON CALAMARI JEDI KNIGHT from the GEONOSIS AREANA. Not an actual character but inspired by the battle of geonosis.

His name is MOANA meaning ocean in COOKISLAND my heritage

(http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_QGrsNtuHIds/TSAX-PoCQ_I/AAAAAAAAAMQ/RFXSMpjZd9c/s1600/SL374791.JPG)

Ive always liked the Mon Calamari as a race, but besides Nahdah Vebb (who i hated as a character and a figure) there are no jedi figures of these guys, so i put this guy together with a total paint job to make him look the jedi part, with a dirtyness for the geonosis look. As always positive and negative feedback is wanted. =D

thanks Rusty.

and how should I go about a wash?
And dark thanks alot man I appreciate it alot

easiest way is to get a cup of water and add about 2-4 large brushfulls of black paint to it then give it a stir(so it looks like very very dirty water )  then using a largeish brush and wash it all over the figures then after about 1-2 minutes wipe off the excess with a paper towel

Well time for another post. This time its jedi master QUINLAN Vos a favourite of mine and many.

(http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_QGrsNtuHIds/TQb7ua2lswI/AAAAAAAAAJA/GOGFLa75VP8/s1600/SL374633.JPG)

Quinlan Vos is one of my favourite starwars characters, but i never really got into either of the hasbro figures or the new clone wars one, so with this custom Vos i wanted to keep his kind of rouge look while getting him in a set of jedi robes, i didnt wanted him to loose his different look that he had from other jedi so i think this one worked out pretty good.

Clone Commando 'Mace' fanmade character and story.


"Think of yourselves as a hand. Each of you is a finger, and without the others you're useless. Alone, a finger can't grasp, or control, or form a fist. You are nothing on your own, and everything together."
?Kal Skirata
A clone commando, or Republic commando, was an elite soldier of the Grand Army of the Republic. Often working in groups of four, clone commandos were assigned to carry out covert operations too delicate for regular clone troopers. Covert infiltration, sabotage, demolition, and assassination were standard tasks for the clone commandos. When Order 66 was issued by Emperor Palpatine at the end of the Clone Wars, one commando unit, Ion Team, refused to fire on their commanding Jedi, Roan Shryne, for various reasons, and several other commandos deserted, thus showing that at least some commandos were independent.

Mace, was part of the four man squad "Claw Team" primarily used for assasinations and espionage. But unlike other squads these four were different, not cloned from Jango Fett, but from various other humans from the galaxy. This particular Comando was a clone of none other then the unlikely doner Jedi Master Mace Windu. though his D&A had been taken without his knowledge.

Several months after Geonosis, Mace Windu was contacted by his old friend Sora Bulq, who was leading a group of renegade Jedi who protested Jedi involvement in the Clone Wars. In response to Bulq's message, Windu traveled to Bulq's estate on Ruul to meet with them. Unfortunately, just after he arrived, Bulq was ambushed by the Dooku-trained assassin Asajj Ventress, resulting in the death of his Padawan. When the other Jedi, including Windu, involved themselves, Ventress claimed she had been sent by Windu himself, confusing the other Jedi.
While the other Jedi busied themselves, Windu began investigating Ventress' presence, unknowingly followed by the Jedi Rhad Tarn. During his investigations, he found Ventress' ship, and realized that Bulq must have allowed her on the planet, since no one could land on Ruul without Bulq being aware of it. Rushing off to confront Bulq, Windu found him in his estate mourning over the body of his Padawan. When Windu accused Bulq of turning to the Dark Side and joining the Confederacy, Bulq didn't deny it. Bulq went further and revealed that the only reason that he brought Windu here for was to exploit his hardliner reputation and discredit him, using the other Jedi as witnesses, as they were unaware of his plans.
Mace Windu versus Sora Bulq.

Bulq then drew his lightsaber and shoto and announced his intention to now kill Windu and return to the others alone, claiming Windu betrayed them. Windu drew his own blade and the battle was on. However, as the two engaged one another in a furious duel, Mace Windu sensed that the other Jedi were in danger and swiftly ended the fight by bringing down a pile of boulders upon Bulq. Rushing to Ventress' ship, he found Rhad Tarn dead and the other Jedi who had followed Tarn engaging the Dark Jedi assassin. After involving himself in the lightsaber duel with the assassin, he managed to drive off Ventress.

Though it came with a price and Windu was injured leaving a trail of blood, Bulq collected and gave this to Dooku who ordered the Kaminoians to try the new rapid clone process. Windu's clone was one of four known surviving subjects of the process. Commando 'MACE' was slotted in with three subjects all cloned from others who had used other blood not of Jango. Two were from legendary Mandalorian General Cratin Tiberius dubbed 'TIB' and 'CRAT' and the fourth was squad leader "DRED" cloned from an unknown spacer from the ghost nebula who was only known to Dooku as Dred.

Together they were among the most succesful and prolific Commando squads of there time, though they were never permitted to remove there helmets as to give away there secret, only among Dooku, and between themselves was it permitted. Another difference of this squad was there shouled markings, each different and not that of there brothers, it was a mark of there heritage, or at least that of there doners. They were forced to cover it by the Kaminoians but were told not to tell Dooku and oneday these markings would make sense to them.

There squad was one of the squads present at the building when Mace Windu was killed, and for some uncanny reason which no one can or could explain Commando 'MACE' felt a disturbance in the force, it was at this moment he realised he had force abilities somehow passed through the cloning process. He rushed out of the building with the CLAW squad following and was drawn to a location. there he found the decemated scolding body of Mace Windu. He began to feel something he never had before and shed a tear, his commrades understood once they saw there faces, they all understood this was his "brother".

CLAW squad left there duties, under urgence from MACE, and they began a massive mission of there own to track down the reamining two subjects of which TIB, CRAT and DRED were cloned from. they never returned to there duties and made there way to the corrasant space port and headed for Mandalor. But they were followed by someone who knew there secret.

The Ven Zallow custom looks great: I'm diggin' the chest armor you used for that Jedi.  Where'd you find that?  Great use of the Anakin Skywalker head from the most recent Geonosis 2-packs; I almost didn't recognize him after the new paint apps for his hair.

He is a real character, here is some of his bio.

"Eison Gynt was a fourth generation Jedi, widely considered to be the most promising Padawan in the Order."


?Gnost-Dural
Eison Gynt was a Nautolan male Jedi Knight of the Old Republic, born to a family line of Jedi. In the years of his youth, he was considered the most talented Padawan in the Jedi Order, and was taken as an apprentice by Master Barel Ovair, a secret spy for the Sith Empire. During a mission to Yavin 4 to explore the tomb of the Sith Lord Naga Sadow, Ovair abandoned Gynt. Ovair reported Gynt's death to the Senate on Coruscant, but Gynt was actually still alive, possessed by the spirit of Sadow. Under Sadow's control, Gynt resurfaced on Coruscant several years later and was slain by Ovair in open combat. Ovair's Imperial allegiance and complicity in Gynt's death were not revealed until years later, when Jedi historian Gnost-Dural researched the events of the mission to Yavin 4 and Gynt's reappearance.

Well ive been busy getting pictures of this new guy i made, this is my fanmade sith lord DARTH KARRITH. And as always i try to include a little backstory, unfortunately this one got a little long when i was writting it. so sorry about that =D hope you guys like the figure and the story. thanks Rusty.

This is fanmade Dark Lord of The Sith Darth Darth Karrith, born Veradun, on the Sith capital world of Dromund Kaas. Malgus was a fierce warrior on the battlefield, and frequently called for changes to the Sith Empire's policies. He was an avid learner and scholar of the sith arts and was seen by many as one of the most powerful warriors of the Sith Empire.

Though a fierce fighter, he stood out as an oddity among the Sith of his day, often recruiting his forces from alien species from all over the galaxy, he would make squads of warriors whos skills would compensate each others and form some of the strongest most formidable squads in the galaxy. He was also responsible for deaths of two fellow sith lords, personally killing them for retreating on the republic world of Dantooine in a battle, they were leading armies but there forces were pushed back by the jedi armies, furious Karrith the leader of the Dantooine invasion killed his sith generals and lead a succseful attack of his own not following there losses and proving once againhe was one of the best. Karrith utilised a specially customized saber and a saber whip and was one of the most skilled users of both at a very young age. In this battle though he recieved extensive damage to his throat and was forced to wear a breathing mask at all times after a chemcial plant exploded in there attack and he breathed in copious amounts of the harmful gas, many soldiers died sith and republic forces alike but because of his force connection and strength Karrith survived.

Karrith was blind in one eye after his master wounded him when he was younger in a training drill when Karrith didnt pass, his Master took it as an insult to himself and forced other masters to hold his apprentice down while he touched the tip of his lightsaber to his eye, After Karrith went to the medic to get a bionic eye but the medical staffed were already told by his Master that he would have to learn to live with one eye and that he was not able to recieve one, and in an even bigger insult Karriths Master had below and above his eye tattooed with his own families crest so that everyone would know it was his master who did this, furious Karrith vowed revenge. Karrith took this revenge 6 years later after he passed his final trials and was given the Darth title murdereing his old Master in his sleep in a very well thought out plan which saw another student Karrith had long had bad blood wblamed for the murder. For many years they had been rivals in the sith academy and on many occasions had resorted to violent conflict and brandished there weapons. His name was Lord Draki and by decree of the High Masters he was sent to a secret location to live out the rest his life in isolation. But the biggest insult to Draki was not recieving the Darth title when Karrith did in there final trials. Instead he was given the title Lord, which many saw as a privellage but he only saw it as an insult. Karrith took both there sabers and kept them on him at all times as a reminder to him, that with time, thought and power came sucess.

Darth Karrith was thought to be killed 1 year after the assault on corrasant lead by Darth Malgus on Alderan by a group of resistance fighters though rumours that he survived spread throughtout the galaxy.

Darth Karrith is cool!  I love the mash-up job with all the mechanical parts; makes him look messed up (as a Sith Lord rightfully should).  Nice touch with the scar over his eye!

Dude, that is a cool saber. Don't sell yourself short. I like it when they are unique.  One of my few personal gripes about the Prequals is the lack of unique Jedi in the spotlight and the lack of blade color variety. IMHO I think Lucas was too conservative. Anyway...off my soapbox.

To be totally honest the tooth saber hilt is made from a piece of junk I found in a 10 cent box at a local collector shop. They have these 4 or 5 bins of nothing but little pieces of toy parts and toy junk. I go by once a week and drop a dollar or so just picking up little things here any there. Sometimes I use them right away, sometime they sit in my junk drawer for a little while until I see a use. The little silver piece on the top was part of a Yoda saber hilt. The blade part of the same Yoda lightsaber. Next I made a hole in the end and added a bit of leather string.

There you have it. Not to hard. I enjoy making lightsaber hilts. The different, the better. One time I made a saber hilt from a piece of a twig. I shaved the bark off and did a brown paint wash. I made a little hole and added a blade. I like doing little things like that.

Rusty, I commented earlier on Darth Karrith but I had to say again how much I like this guy and his back story.  I caught the tattoo explanation; must have missed it as I read it quickly.  I have to agree with Mungo about the sabers you created: it's always nice to see something new and different and your use of different weapons to craft his saber and the lightwhip are nothing short of impressive!

Army Of Light Jedi Master Natoola Hope (fanmade)
"An Army of Light to face the Brotherhood of Darkness."


?Kaan


During the New Sith Wars, the Army of Light was the name given to the military force that Lord Hoth led against the Sith Lord Kaan and his Brotherhood of Darkness. The army consisted of both Jedi and regular troops serving the Republic.

The Army of Light was an ad-hoc military forced hastily assembled and provisioned to combat the sudden change of fortunes of the Brotherhood at a time the Republic had thought the Sith defeated. As the war ground on, Hoth's forces grew even thinner, and he was forced to recruit Force-sensitive children to bolster his forces. He was reluctant to do so but his aide, Pernicar, advised him that if he didn't send the children against Kaan, Kaan would send them against the Jedi.

The Army of Light was greatly weakened by its clashes with the Sith Brotherhood on Ruusan, and by the time of the seventh Battle of Ruusan, they were merely the bedraggled remnants of the army they once were (the youth Tomcat labeled them the "Army of Mud").
One unit of the Army of Light was the Third Legion of Light, commanded by Jedi General New'arforrth. The army was severely weakened by a thought bomb used by Kaan during the seventh battle of Ruusan.

Natoola Hope was one of the jedi killed by the thought bomb in the seventh battle of Ruusan. But in his time he had lead many succesful campaings against the sith and even before his death he personally killed 3 sith warriors in a saber battle before the thought bomb went off. An avid warrior and cunning leader he was well respected by his men and jedi peers, he was a friend to many, adopting a kind approach to his men, often making them feel good by his kind words invoking courage to his men. He lead from the front lines, and was to said to be the first to enter the battle, and last to leave it. One recount even says that he was forced to call a retreat in a battle but did not leave until almost the very last man has made his retreat, proving his bravness and the amount of which he held the life of his men.

Oh...my...god!  If they gave Academy Awards for customizing and parts selection, you would certainly be nominated (and likely win)!  I love seeing how you used the soft goods kama (the materials creates a rugged look for this character), the use of the weequay drummer body from Jabba's palace defines the Old republic time period perfectly, and certainly the use of the Mace Windu head.  The facial hair/head mods you made put this guy over the top.  The time you put into your back stories really shows; I often have little time available to check out new stuff here (only early in the mornings usually), but I'm going to need to get up a bit earlier to more carefully read your character bios.  What an amazing, amazing piece of work!   :D

Post by: Rustyscustoms on February 13, 2011, 01:09:33 PM
the head is actually a mace windu head, with added hair from "the doctor" gijoe figure and then pained =D

Anyways thanks everyone, time to give you a little more. Here is my newest custom Jedi Master Merc, "the forgotten one"
He is also fanmade and i have finished his backstory finally got the time.

Thousand of years ago, in the 7th battle Ruusan, a thought bomb was used by the forces of the sith in a bid to finish off the forces of the Army Of Light. Many republic forces and Jedi fell at the siths hands.
As the battle cleared and the debree settled the cold bodies of the war lay still, but not all. 2 days later a group of smugglers landed on the battle site and began to salvage what they could, making there way through the rubble they found a Jedi, severely deformed and injured, but alive. They couldn’t tell his species as the damage was to severe so they took him to there ship and had there medical droid, an out of date model work on the Jedi and use parts from there scrap piles to rebuild him.

His eye had been replaced by a bionic eye, his right arm from the forearm down replaced, his left hand, his spine also replaced. A modified bacta pack was placed on his back to sustain his serious injuries. He also had his whole left leg replaced and his knee joint on his right. Due to unavailable parts and scarcity of proper medical staff they were forced to use anything they could.
2 days later he returned to consciousness and had lost his memory, his name and heritage was lost in limbo. Until one day listening in on some smugglers conversation he heard them say he’d make a great Merc, meaning mercenary but the JedI misunderstood and thought they were saying his name, so he adopted the name Merc as his own.

The smugglers tried to make him work for them, as he still had a force connection and was still able to use his lightsaber with some amount of skill, but he managed to escape in the outer rim and began his journey. He travelled in search of answers of his life and his identity, along the way collecting spare parts for himself when he needed them, but loneliness struck in and he decided to build a companion. Many spare parts later he had constructed an unlikely friend who he named rollie. Together they would travel the outrim in search of answers, many stories emerged of a robotic man in the outer rim but over thousands and thousands of years many dismissed these as just stories. Though it became apparent that Merc was unable to die due to his body being mostly droid he was able to sustain life changing parts as they decomposed on his body.

But as the years went by, Merc slowly became nothing more then a droid, coming to be known in the stoires that circled the galaxy simply as “the Forgotten One”. What happened to Merc no one knows, many rumours say he found what he was looking for, many say he is now just a droid working for spacers, but some, some believe Merc still travels the outer rim, searching for the answers to his life with his friend rollie wandering the outerim in a bid to gain his sanity and became complete.

I like the Jerec a lot.  You got great use out of that Palpy head: that's usually one that is a struggle to incorporate since it's such a recognizable face, but you really got a different look out of it this time.  The concept Ki-Adi cloak is a nice touch too!

I wored as the other night so i thought i have a go at making my 1st ever Mando. I took it as a bit of a joke nothing to serious just being silly with it having a bit of fun in the process, all in all i think the paint scheme turned out pretty well and for the simple fact this will probably be a last and a first i just went silly and made him Irish. His name...

Shamus Mcmurphy

So time for some new customs, these guys are peices ive been working on for a little while and when they new NPKB came up i decided to make them completely paint free and enter them. As with all my fanmades these guy do have a back story, im thinking of making this one a bit longer so ill post if i do make it a fan fiction story not just a little back story. for now here is the gyst of it and a few pics to just have a look at.

Order 66 has wiped out most the jedi, fleeing for safety many go into hiding, but they are soon weeded out in the oncoming purge. This act of malice by the emperor was nothing less then a genocide of the jedi order. whoever wasnt killed is now hunted, and Sidious will and has stopped at nothing to bring them to what he calls "justice" for there actions. Clone units are posted to distant planets to hunt to apparent traitors of the republic.

When corrasant fell, many lives fell with it, hundreds of Jedi slaughtered by there so called "chosen one". 2 young  jedi knights brothers Izeakial and Tayleth make an escape from the temple as the 501st begins there assult. they make there way to a shipyard near by and commandeer a fighter hastily making there way off world. They set quordinates for Mygeeto where Tayleth's Master was stationed alongside master Mundi.

To be continued...

Just a small plug of whats to come ive decided im going to turn this into a story now :D heres some pics.

Izeakial

HAHAHA your a loser ART! lol

and thanks luke, i dont know if im going to do it as a photo novel, or a picture novel, so mostly written with a few pictres. havnt decided because if i do a photo novel i really want to make it good, but i dont think i have the capabilities to produce a strong peice, considering ive been collecting for the best part of only a year i dont have as many figures at my disposal as id like. and i also use alot of my figures for customs, i more of a customizer then a collecter lol

I also have a question, can anyone tell me how to pull apart the standard Gijoe figures, like rise of cobra style ones. i worked out how to pull the legs off but i was getting arms the other day and i ended up destroying the torso to the point of no return to get the arms. just wondering if theres a better to do it without butchering half my figure in the process lol.

thanks Rusty.

Title: Re: RustysCustoms UPDATES: Jedi Brothers IZEAKIAL & TAYLETH + 2 Dark Acolytes
Post by: Luke Sprywalker on February 16, 2011, 06:33:53 PM
Rusty, I split Joe torsos by cutting the seam at the arm to neck, then arm pit to the bottom. Always use a sharp blde on your exacto knife. Then the other side can be pried open with a screwdriver. Some people put the figure in a sock with the top folded down to double up on the arm area leaving the top of the head poking out. Then put the sock and figure in a small bench vice with each arm against the plates of the vice. tighten down until you hear a pop, loosen the vice and your torso and arms will be in the sock. Good luck and if you use the first way please be careful and always cut away from yourself. If it feels sketchy try something else you can cut yourself badly.

Haha thanks luke, you can tell your a dad :).
And I cut myself the other day with a razor lol but its part of our line of duty to make awesome customs lol.

Whats an exacto knife I dnt know if we have the kind in australia, whats it comparable to?
Title: Re: RustysCustoms UPDATES: Jedi Brothers IZEAKIAL & TAYLETH + 2 Dark Acolytes
Post by: Luke Sprywalker on February 16, 2011, 07:12:12 PM
It is a good quality razor blade type knife/precision cutting tool. I have several different ones I use for different applications. I just got a new set for christmas that has a really nice handle and several interchangable blades.

Post by: Rustyscustoms on February 16, 2011, 08:29:56 PM
Ok cool I have seen these at a hobby shop, might buy some next time im there and have a go. I basically just use a razor blade, but they arent very good for hard cutting, just soft stuff.

Alright time for a new post, now this guy is a sort of cross over character. I took a regular senate gaurd and turned it into a Ron Fel gaurd. This is just a fanmade idea, but these guys would have been some of the up most elite and loyal gaurds lesser skill then an imperial knight but just as loyal. so here is my Ron Fel Royal Gaurd. I have also made 2 Imperial knight customs and a Fel pictured below, ill try and get those all posted today aswell. but they are older customs this is the new guy =D

Ron Fel Royal Gaurd.

Hey guys i dont really count this as a custom but a simple modification. this is a ganner krieg hair mod, if your like me i like my figures to look a little different to every other one of its kind. All i did was remove his pony tail, and replaced it with a padme hair peice thing, then painted and glued it on. Simple and effective.

Mine cost $150 lol, I doubt I was buying 2, maybe next time I will haha, they dnt look like stopping I mean there british and british ppl dont die. They queen, the rolling stones its just a fact of life lol :)

And also im very interested in that shield, ill send you a pm shortly :).

And mungo, I had the idea that these guys were trained the same as imperial knights in combat but where not force sensitve (otherwise they would have been knights themselves) they would have been diplomatic gaurds on missions to other planets and stuff like that.

Could work, but I mean he isnt exactly wearing the attire to take on a role like that, I mean the large helmet, thick armour and long skirt dnt make him very nimble I imagine but food for thought if I do another :)

Well its been a few days and i had a massive wrap up about my Roan Fel Royal Gaurd, but im going back to my usual thing with this post of Sabers =D. This guy is my idea of a Dark Jedi Student, who possibly trained under Dark Jedi Master Jerec as one of his Disciples.

Meet: Ngariki (pronouced Nar-rik-i, its part of my cookisland heritage)

Well well well it has been a few days since ive posted, had a massive weekend with a concert in sydney, maiden last week and alot of train rides and getting lost in the city lol.

so its time to post a new custom, and this is a guy ive been wanting to do for a very very long time. im also entering him in the NPKB as he qualifys for the comp.

So without further chatter, here is my favourite character Quin Lan Vos as a Dark Jedi...

hmmm, cant remember either ;) but it might be me for I like the Vos character and its walking on the thin line between light and dark, even crossing it... not being a noble Jedi at all, just like we have our dark sides ;)

Quinlan looks killer!  I like that you used the 2nd comic pack head over the first one; this one just looks more like him.  Great idea on using the Chewie bag/bandolier strap!

yeh the first head is pretty bad as far as sculpt goes, and as for the 2nd I think it looks alot darker aswell. Really portrays that dark side of his. Congrats btw on the npkb

Post by: Rustyscustoms on March 02, 2011, 11:51:38 AM
Ok well i finished my bothan but not his backstory so i wont post him up yet, but i mst say he is an instant favourite of mine at least in the top three.

But now i have another post to make, its been a day or 2 so here it goes. Falleen Master Marama (meaning moon in cook island part of my heritage) and his Twilek Apprentice Reo (meaning voice in cook island).

Falleen Master Marama and his Twilek Apprentice Reo.
These to were survivors or order 66 and made there way into hiding in the outer rim, forced to flee the jedi temple on corrasant when the 501st stormed it with the newly appointed sith lord Darth Vader, ?together they made a daring escape with fellow padawan JinLo Rayce and together they made for the outer rim. no one knows whether they are still alive, but sightings fitting there descriptions have been made many times.

Now this Falleen jedi has to be a favourite of mine, but the apprentice i feel is lacking a bit, ill probably re visit him eventually and do a few little touch ups that are annoying me, but all in all i think these guys arent to bad =D.

thanks Rusty.

alrighty then time for a new post. Now this guy was inspired by darth daddy and mungos bothan jedis, but I wanted to take mine to a new level of kick ass and really cut loose on him. And as far as it goes I think this guy became my favourite custom to date, basically just a great well put together part selection he became an instant favourite of friends ive shown. His back story isnt complete but I dnt know when it will be and couldnt keep putiing this post off.


So without further banter here is bothan jedi master Vaerua (meaning spirit in cook island part of my heritage)

Thats the question ive been asking myself aswell, do I risk ruining this great custom, if it works it will be better, but could go horribly wrong and make a mess of everything. Im a fairly confident painted ive done enough to know where my skill level is, but I think I can almost let this slide. Watch in 2 weeks it will annoy me and ill do it :). I think ill blend the robes but as for the fur  personally like the contrasting hands head/body.

So here is the custom saber.

As you can see his saber is substantially longer, as part of his story when he made his saber blade and hilt longer to compensate his height and give him an advantage over his opponents using his pure power and size.

That is awesome. You have certainly taken making Jedi to a new level. I am not sure I will be able to keep up. Would you share a parts list (character and lightsaber)...I am especially curious about the torso you used with the fuzzy chest. Painted or not, it looks great. I tip my hat to you.

How many times can you come up with awesome, Dan?  Great execution on young Exar Kun!  Those GIJoe arm guards and the bits of armor on the chest/neck/shoulders look great.  What piece did you use around his neck?

Very nice work again Rusty! This is an awesome version of the character, thanks for the reference picture. You have cobbled together some great parts to bring him to life. Great job on the small betails like the hand binder chain and the bottom of SS mask around the neck.

Hey merc, its actually from a droid arm the one that is the flame thrower I just cut off the hand bit at the end and put it sround the back, then toovk a little link of chain from an xmen sabertooth weapon and placed it on the front and glyed those together forming a removable nack brace. Ill post a pic with it removed after work.

Amen Kreeper. Ain't that the truth. My problem was I always attracted to the bad girls and knowing they were bad still didn't make me feel any better when I or they split.

Rusty, time heals all wounds they say, which won't mean piddly to you now but it will get better. I sure hope it doesn't limit your custom building dreams. You have tons of potential and I don't say that lightly.

Vent away, bud.  I always worry about folks who are heavy posters and then suddenly violate their pattern.  I always feel better when I hear someone vent - that way I know they are not, like, buried in earthquake rubble or something.

First, that mini-rig really does look amazing Dan!  And you've got to do what you need to do at a time like this: focus on other stuff, get your mind off of certain things, get some perspective.  I hope to see new stuff some you at some point, though!

I'm liking your Nautolan Jedi quite a bit.  I like the use of color choice on him.  If I could make a suggestion, however; There doesn't seem to be any division in the colors, no shadowing or differentiation there, and I think a light shadow along the molded lines would really go a long way.  Just my thought on it, but I do like him!

Jedi Swamp Monster IVA.
Well its been a long time since ive posted, I have had some issues in my life atm that have kept my down and out of the game. But im here to share a few little things I managed to work on over my time away.

I would like you all to meet IVA, meaning number 9 in cook islands. IVA is a fanmade custom that i have put together and made a back story for. short but sweet =D

"when master yoda went into self impossed isolation with little to no other choice after the purge he made his way to dagobah where he and all others thought he was alone. But deep in the swaps lived something, a swap being who after days of lurking near Yoda finally made himself aware to the Jedi Master who had senced him all along feeling some force sensitivity in the being.

When Yoda put IVA through some simple tests Yoda was astonished at just how force sensitive he was, and such a mind as to learn fluent basic in just 4 short months. Yoda had never seen or heard of a creature of this nature and begun formally training him in the ways of the force. Yoda gave him robes and a lightsaber of a fallen master from Kashyyk that he carried with him and had never burried his belonging yet. Iva learnt the ways of the force quickly, and as Yoda begun telling him more of the outside world and of what was happening, Iva became increasingly hateful of the sith. His lust to exact revenge upon his "fellow" jedi as he called them was disheartening to Yoda. after years of training yoda dubbed IVA a jedi knight after putting him through many different tests which he passed with great ability.

But 2 years later a group of spacers landed in the swamp and IVA lost his ways and murdered them, Yoda pleaded with him ot to leave but he said it was there time to exact revenge upon the sith. Nor Yoda or any others know the fte of IVA but no stories were ever told of him and so he was forgotten. And his memory became nothing but a shadow in the mind of Yoda over his hundreds of years.
