Man, your stuff is looking better than ever Chewie.

I've been getting discouraged, my Citadel paint which I loved is starting to go on clumpy and really frustrating any attempts at figures I've been doing. The color choices and detailing on these are inspiring though!

Great take on Rykrof! And the gand is way cool!

Boah Chewie,

very nice update again:

Admiral Tylin Gere: Really like the parts combination but you might give the chest armour a slight drybrush to add some "battle-worn" effects. And how about the typical AT-AT Commander helmet? Battle-worn look would look great there also.

Gand Assassin: Absolutely amazing work, buddy. I really dig his appearance and the paint job is terrificly well done. Kudos!

Rykrof Enloe: Excellent part combination, good choice of colours and fantastic paint job. One idea though: Try to get part of his nose under the scarf; you will see, he will look more dangerous that way :mrgreen:

Fantastic stuff. Such cool updates make it even harder for me to keep on waiting for chapter 32 to be revealed!

As Darth Vader would say; Impressive. Most impressive! :wink:

Tylin:I like the AT-AT Commander parts on him, also the black legs are a good way of breaking up the Imperial grey!

Gand Assassin: The Gand assassin is very nice work indeed! I really like the parts you used for him and the unique colour scheme. Love the red eyes!

Rykrof: I love this version of Rykrof. I think it's a cool concept very nicely brought to life!

Admiral Tylin Ger


that's a great evrsion of the character and a nice way to depict him armor, did you repaint the AT-AT commander parts ? they somehow look of a lighter grey.


Gand Assassin
Perfect in every way, i really like the head and the bulkier gand style you went with.

Rykrof Enloe
that's really a great custom, i'm a bit puzzled by the mauve armor pieces that clash a bit with the darker clothes, but that's a minor detail.

I love the look of the HK droid and that's a great mesh of parts. I didn't even see "Terminator" until I noticed the background. Great job. Sidious also looks great with the Vintage arms. I think the Vintage head is creepy, but if he's for your PN I see why you went with a neutral expression.

The Captain and Tylin look seamless and well put together, but I think the Tylin looks a little awkward holding such a big gun. Just my opinion and it's not huge deal.

Great job on this round of figures Chewie, and I'm looking forward to Chapter 32!
Well lookie here. Mr. Folgers!

Terminator Droid

this whole fig is really cool and total bad@##, i think you've overdone yourself with the weathering which is perfect !


Tylin Gere

As much as i like the character and the fact he changes clothes from time to time ( ;) ) i must say i'm not too comfortable with the bright green trousers, it goes together well with the troopers though


Captain Neelis - An Imperial captain during the early days of the Empire.

this one is very nice, the two tone uniform (black trousers) don't disturb particularly which is rather odd but i can imagine it as an early empire uniform

Emperor Palpatine
i like him a lot : the captive palpatine + sidious parts combo looks really good

WOW!!!

The hunter droid is really something else! the paintwork on the cloth is so lifelike, it really is breathtakingly good. The other customs are also absolutely spot on.

Thanks for the comments guys. I might change up Tylin one more time... ugh. I just can't get a look that I really can settle on.

Great update, Chewie, the Terminator droid is fantastic, I wondered when someone would get around to using YVH1 parts for a Terminator!
The other customs are great too, nice use of the Joe goggles on Captain Neelis's helmet!!

I like Tylin's various updates, but it seems like for the final chapter he does need a "costume" with a bit more impact. The green pants work well with the green troops, though, it's a nice visual in that regard.

I went looking back at some of Tylin's looks and I always liked the one where you used those heavier Indy motorcycle nazi arms on him. It got me thinking maybe you could do a black long coat over his uniform for this chapter... just a thought. :)

Neelis looks great... I love two color Imperial uniforms for variation. :)

Thanks guys, and I reworked Tylin again last night, heh. I think now it's more appropriate.

Also have 6 other customs on the table right now, all ready to paint.

:wink:
