Haven't gotten around to making many new customs lately, but I've got a couple (that I made around Christmas, didn't get around to taking pictures :P) new guys to share.

Starting off with some custom ARC troopers. I picked up about 30 clone troopers at my FLGS (a guy dropped off a couple boxes of minis for the store to sell) and decided to convert some of them.

Next is a repaint of Mandalore the Ultimate. From the first time I saw the piece, I was horrified by the paint job. His armor is silver, not golden! :P

Image

And last but not least, the reason the thread is titled what it is. A fellow mini player at my LGS had once joked about making an Ugnaught that looked like Santa Clause, with a giant sack that held all his little "gifts" (bombs, hehehe) and I took on the challenge.

Well, thats all for now, enjoy!

Awesome! I love the Clones, especially the Rex-esque one. Very nice.

The Ugnaught Claus is freakin' awesome!

Hmm....I suppose you could offer something to trade for it. Because it's so special, I might make a second one to trade, however.

Showed my son the Uggie this morning. He loved it so much he asked if we could make some! :D

Of course my anwer was, "we'll need to get more uggies, shall I start trading rares for them?" :P

It's all greenstuff. The hardest part is probably either cutting off his explosives (really tiny stuff, easy to knick a finger) or adding on the cuffs on his sleeves, but other than that, it's just sculpting it till you're satisfied. Good luck :)

Ah, so that's why I wasn't get any response. :) I was waiting for the forums to get back up to contact you, just to make sure you approved of how it looks. I'll get those pics up as soon as possible. :)

Ah, O well. I actually just got my bacta tank a few days ago (negotiating the trade took longer than expected) and it's not ready. O well, there's always next time. :)

@Madman My dad had the camera on a trip he took, but he's back now so I should have the pics up soon.
