Why go through life base fig, when you can customize?

Well, I've been away on holiday in Portugal last week and I managed to do quite some more work on my batch of customs. Thanks for frontpaging my Helghast officer, Clonehead! I've got him and quite a few others all primed in black, ready to be painted.

One of those primed is that chick for the current Yakfinities. Like I said, she's gonna have a sweet ride, similar to Docoutlands excellent Twi'lek racer.

I used a cheap 1/18 die cast Kawasaki XZ-12RYQX-23RFS or whatever motorcycle, pulled it apart and used some Incom magic on it <ahem>.  Jules already know I easily get mixed up in details, so I kept adding styrene, wire and what not and now it looks like this:



But I think it looks more SW without the aerodynamic body, which easily pops on and off the main body. What do you guys think? I will add the windshield, don't worry:

At first look, I think your design looks better without the body fairing on it.  And let me tell ya, it looks MARVELOUS either way!

Remco, it's always nice to view your customs, and it seems that you just keep getting better and better.
Is that a painted toothpaste cap on the front of that bike?

hmm that looks oddly familiar! lol.  Great start on that bike.   I like it both ways, if it pops on and off eisilly why not make it an accessory?  paint it up like it could go on there and it can be an option, displayable with or without it.

I like it, can't wait to see it finished.

Fellow troopers, thanks for the uplifting words! Now, I don't want to show you a pic every time I've painted a part of these figs, but I made good progress (and let my girlfriend take care of our two little girls after dinner  Wink )

Jules, I deliberately showed b/w pics at first, because the figs were all unpainted. But here's a WIP shot of the painting stage so far. I decided to make my entry for this round of the Yakfinities a Zeltron.



These next two have been on the bench for some time now (like many of my work, haha!), but one of these will be my entry for the Jedidefender custom contest. One of the 30 figs we could make, was a super articulated Rebel Commando (long overdue, Hasblow!). Over at RS, one of the members noticed the Resolute Duke figure is already a great base figure for a Rebel Commando. I picked up his idea and started working on what eventually will be a squad of four Commandos.

I don't know if any of you recall the novelization of ROTJ, but in that novel James Kahn desribes the Rebel Commandos as outlaws, criminals, dubious fellas, but each has a fierce hatred toward the Imps. I ordered a couple of TriGate heads and let me tell ya, the guys over there know how to sculpt! Awesome mean looking heads, perfect for Rebels ready to gut some STs.

Okay, enough with the yadda yadda, here's a pic of the one I'm painting right now, and one that has been accessorized:





Finally a shot of my SW/Killzone Officer. Let me tell ya, I LOVE that Trachta head for this custom (I believe I have another seven or so Trachtas in my fodder bins  Grin ). As you can see, I removed his toupet and gave him a healthy looking skin tone, ahem.



(click the thumbs for larger images).

That's it for now, stay tuned for FINISHED pics of the Zeltron and the Rebel Commando, because their deadlines are October 31st  Wink

Incom good to hear from you. Very cool WIP's again, good luck on that deadline.  Wink  Looks like a nice start on the Rebel with that Joe body and I am a big fan of your Killzone officer.
