Decent customs from what I can tell. Nice molded mice. You might want to trying photographing in front of a backdrop so the camera can tell what it is supposed to focus on.

For the molded mouse droids I purchased this stuff called instant mold. it is a reusable molding material. all you have to do is boil some water and pour it over the molding material to make it pliable. then work it over a mouse droid until it hardens back up. after that pull out the mouse droid and you have your mold. then I just fill it with green stuff let it harden and paint, as simple as that. If you want me to make you some just let me know. I will try to take the pictures again behind a backdrop so you can see them in detail.

Nice work, those are pretty good. I especially like Jaster and Admiral Saul.

It seems you got the hang of it rather quick. And it seems you have a steady hand, which really helps with the paintjobs.

Keep it up!

For Jaster was a combo of two pieces (gunslinger and Datchwatch i believe) then i used the top of the gunslinger for my huntress witch was a pain to get the two pieces to line up. but she came out the best though I wasn't to pleased with how to back of her cape came out.
