Thanks Dan: I'm always in awe of your work, so it means a lot to have your compliments.

The "Clone with No Name" is also my favorite of the most recent ones I've made. I tried my best to get him as perfect as I could, from parts/gear choices to the right paint apps. I'm really, really pleased with how he turned out and though I don't really display my customs, he makes the occasional appearance because of how good I think he turned out.

Thanks again for your comments!

Well...my family finally got into our new home and finished renovating what we needed to, so...a chance to get some new customs out there! I've got quite a few WIP's, including a version of Wyl Tarson (double agent - Rebellion comic series), Starkiller (Corellian Flight Suit), a clone bounty hunter, and a smuggler/part-time soldier during the time of the rebellion. I'll be posting WIP pics of the clone bounty hunter in the next few days...

But first, here's a fig I'm really happy with how he turned out. Ever since seeing Luke in his Bespin fatigues in TESB, I've always liked thinking of the Jedi not in some simple brown/tan robe, but instead wearing clothing more like that of the typical citizen (albeit with some minor additions of armor, etc.) and using alternative weaponry along with their lightsabers. That's why I've always been fascinated by the descriptions of the members of the Jedi Order during the NJO novels, wearing the gear and clothing that I always envisioned since 1980:

Jayce Rellin (New Republic Jedi)
- Rellin was once a member of a police force on a small backwater planet in the outer rim, but that was before galactic hero Luke Skywalker established his Jedi Academy following the Galactic Civil War. Skywalker followed up on reports of individuals performing strange or extraordinary acts and tested them for force sensitivity. Skywalker traveled to meet Rellin after word reached him of a law officer who, while in pursuit of a gang of local thugs who had attempted to rob a bacta processing center, single-handedly---and with no seemingly available weapons or tools---"grabbed hold of the air surrounding a building" that had been detonated by the thugs to slow his pursuit, slowly lowering it without allowing it to harm innocents who were inside. After rescuing all inside, Rellin supposedly tracked the thugs in the hours after they scattered and, one by one, apprehended them following only the "scent of their fear". His fellow officers were amazed and this tale was leaked to outside authorities, where it somehow was passed along to Master Skywalker.

Skywalker's tests found Rellin to possess above-average force sensitivity and he offered Jayce an opportunity to join the Jedi Order. Rellin, without hesitation, accepted. He became a Jedi Knight within 2 years of joining the order and is currently stationed along the Perlemian Trade Route, tracking pirates and assisting local planetary governments in economic and political disputes. Recently, word has reached him that an invasion fleet of bio-organic make has breached known space and is heading toward his area of operations...

Here's the clone bounty hunter I'm currently working on...these are phase one pics (I had only painted/nicked up the shoulder armor at this point), but I've already begun another paint process, so my final version isn't too far away!

Thanks for the comments everyone!

I was late posting my clone bounty hunter WIP and, since then, I've finished the final version.

Here he is, finally finished: Desh Gannar...bounty hunter!

I originally wanted a helmet of some type for this guy, but none of the concoctions I used seemed to look right on him. In the end, I found a breather mask (from some GIJoe fig) and it worked out much better than I had hoped. For now, he's got two looks: one with breather mask and one with cloak; I'm not sure which one I like him in better...

I also experimented in creating slight rust stains on his armor; some of his shoulder armor has dents and gashes, but I guess he hasn't changed his chest or leg armor for awhile.

Let me know what you think!
