What did you use for the Tusken Chieftain's rifle?

And as for Salacious Crumb, I plan to get a Kowakian monkey-lizard off of Hondo Ohnaka.


I saw a Hondo SC this weekend, looked good, but I definitely prefer the Jabba version.

The stick (not a rifle even though it looks like one - but the fig is non-melee :)) is from the Mustafarian Soldier, and the shield is from the Utapaun something or other.

Sith Inquisitor came out well, I have intentions of moving the arms into a slightly different pose (going to try to get them into a praying stance), but I really liked how the hood painting came out. The other thing I have to do is seal all of them, and add some more glossiness to a couple of them. Also picked up a Reborn thanks for Jake this weekend, and a couple of other key minis for customs (got an Ordo for $2!). So more coming later this week as Erin and I finish them up. Of particular interest will be my Big Pimpin Wedge's Snowspeeder. Since there is nothing really different about the mini, I decided to go a different route. It's a work in progress at the moment, but tinted windows, a yellow 2 on the back, and Wedge and Rogue on the wings so far :)

Yeah, I really like the Inquisitor too. That's an Emperor's Hand right?
I actually kind of like the non-glossy paint on him, but he'll look good with some sheen too.
8-)

I'm tempted to buy one of those Crumb figs that Biggsy posted. If I'm going to spend money to get a Crumb anyway, I'd rather not carve up an RS Jabba that someone else could put in their collection. To each his own though. :)

Oh, I'm not adding any gloss to him, I meant some of the others. He's staying non-gloss, as I like it that way too!

Well, I used my own Jabba, not a second one. I have no problem with cutting SC off of my only Jabba, because I never intend to sell him, and well, I can still easily use him without SC.

Just remove SC from the base and add a leia with a chain. I am sure that's a fair trade-off.

I sense a future v-set piece. :D
For that matter, why not a Jabba and Salacious combo piece?
Maybe I will get another Jabba after all...

You know, I might well do that :)

If a mini ever cried for "internal strife," that would be the one.

OK, sorry for this comment, but i can't help noticing the Anipad picutre shows ani JK (ROTS) with his glove on his right hand, when technically he didn't lose his hand until AFTER the battle of geonosis (well, after he dueled dooku that is). Sorry for that comment; i couldn't resist. :D :D :D


Anyways, awesome job on all of them, i loved Ani + Padme on Reek, Sora Bulq, and Niles Ferrier. The tusken chief looked pretty sweet too. Great job!


Umm, that's how the mini was made by WotC :) I didn't change it at all. Now granted, I could have used a different Anakin, but this was the one that I had an extra off, and I figured, close enough. I'll probably have Erin pain the hand, but hadn't gotten that far yet :)


yea, i know. :P awesome work though, that reek looks pretty amazing. it looks almsot exactly like the movie! :O

Darth Zannah? Wait, what? :P

Is she an Agent of Evil, too? Probably not... ;)

Zannah's face sort of resembles Carly Simon. Your so Bane... :P sorry

Like what you did with the Acolyte, it gave me some ideas.

Wish my better half was into this kind of thing. :)

VERY nice work, Bill and Erin.

I've got my wife to sit down one time and paint with me, but that was for her own RPG piece. She has too many other hobbies and interests to keep her busy. But that's really cool that you can do it together.

As for Salacious....I'm probably going to try tracking down an extra Jabba at some point. Cutting off Salacious wouldn't be so bad, especially if we end up doing a non-Unique Hutt or a Ziro or something down the line. I highly recommend NOT trying to cut the Monkey Lizard off of Hondo. I nearly lost a finger that way. It came out nice, but it was a LOT of trouble.

Pretty good. The paint job the Jedi Demolitionist is my favorite. Might i suggest that for the Scout Trooper Officer repaint the Kashyyyk Trooper. Just something i would like to see

Way to go bill just moving right along with these guys. They look real good; some of them look to be very creative and will probably be a lot of fun to field if not for the opponents reaction to custom work but to the beast that is the pippin lowspeeder.

Man, I wasn't planning on doing a custom Revan (since I can't field the two in the same squad anyway), but I really like that Jensaarai repaint. I might have to do one myself.
Are you planning on adding a greenstuff hood at any point? That would look amazing.

I'd love too, but I kinda suck with the greenstuff. Perhaps if I find a friend really good at it sometime, I might, but otherwise no, not planning on it :) The Jensarri idea was not my own, I saw one at Lansing last weekend that showed me the potential - so I totally copied the idea!
