My Revanchist is heavily inspired by Lefties' one. It was super hard making his cloak. I had never used so much green stuff before, grossly overestimated how much I would need. I had to make the cloak in parts, just putting them on and mounlding them together on him. But I want to say thanks for the inspiration.

How'd you do the Sith Inquisitor's head? What was Shimmara's base piece?
Man, your customs are superb!

The Sith Inquisitor looks a bit like a Death Star Gunner's head but backwards. Might be a bit more to it then that but they have that slope.

Markedman has it (although its an Imperial Engineer not the Gunner; slightly bigger head but it'd be impossible to tell the difference in a picture). I cut off and filed down the "nose" of the helmet and put it on backwards.

Shimmra was made entirely from a Praetorite Vong Warrior, the hands and staff of an Ithorian Commander, and a loooot of greenstuff. I cut off his femurs, forearms and neck, and filled them with greenstuff instead to make him taller.I used straightened staples as skeletal supports to make the figure stronger. The head is actually the same head from the Praetorite Vong warrior with epoxy additions to his cranium, nose, and palapets.

Indeed, great stuff!

Satele Shan is kick-A 8-)

Like your Grievous, Rune Haako, and though the pic is a bit dark, the paint on the Duros Pilot looks really sweet. :)

Great work Lefty! I especially like your Grievous, better that any of the WotC ones. He looks really bada**! And Satele Shan is really good as well, how did you make her?

I'm going to use this Grievous as a proxy for any and every Grievous I ever use from now on. 8-)

I started with a Twi-lek Bodyguard and a Jedi Crusader for the head. I cut deep wedges in her armpit, inside of her elbow, and wrist to bring her arm closer to her chest; otherwise the lightsaber hilt would've been too long. I used epoxy for her hairbraids, shoulderpads, the ridge on her back connecting the shoulderpads, wristpads, the silver thing on the band on her left upper arm, lightsaber ends and buttons, belt buckle, coattails of her dress, the edges of her gloves near her elbows, kneepads, armor bits on her boots, and the gold rings around her thighs. I got her two pocket-satchels from a Heavy Clone Trooper (Jedi Academy). The soft blue lightsaber blades are from acrylic rods I got at GenCon. It was kind of tricky trying to figure out what colors to mix for her dress, but I shot for a mix of brown and grey and it turned out perfectly.

I couldn't get the camera I was using to take a decent picture of her until mid-afternoon when I put her in direct sunlight shining through my window. The results are quite beautiful, I think.
