Thanks tmoaswg. I am still working on the tattoos but I will probably send some new pics on Friday with some other figures included.

jedi luke update - very cool, im a complete sucker for a custom luke that mixes traditional jedi garments with luke black gear. i don't know if you own a dremel but the head seems to sit a tad hi and if you are able to dremel it down a bit i think they haed would sit much better. great parts choice here as well, this is the second recent jedi luke that i have seen use the seasee tinn legs and they really fit the charecter well.
Hey Erik, Nice to hear from you and many thanks for your detailed feedback. I appreciate that much. You are absolutely right with the head. I should have used a dremel to make it look more appropriate. But right now, I am thinking about changing this custom figure into a Joruus C'Baoth. Will see what will finally be the outcome

This guy was made of parts that were deeply "buried" into my fodder lot. The head indeed was repainted. Dash Rendar first got a "shave", then I changed the skin colour (but will probably do again, because is still looks a bit dopey.

Thanks again for your ideas. Before I dared drybrushing the Vong Warrior, I used this guy as my "test subject". I think that for the first time, the drybrushing effect looks good. For the head, I will try to sculpt a scarf or something similar around his neck to make him look even better.

Many thanks for those kind words but you are so much better in doing paint jobs than I am so I am really looking forward seeing Darth Krayt (and Cassus Fett of course). Supposely, I had some luck while drybrushing that guy.
Many thanks, tmoaswg and Jedistyle!
