    Thanks, I appreciate it. :)

    Glad you like my Tenel, and she originally had two arms. Removing her left arm was the first thing I did in making Tenel from a [link=http://www.rebelscum.com/SWminiCOTF09enforcer.asp]Dark Side Enforcer[/link].

    Thanks again for the comments, folks. :)

    Nightsaber: I take what spare Star Wars miniatures I got in my collection, plus certain ones from Dungeons & Dragons and give them a new paint-over. I also cut off/glue parts of them to have?em appear as other characters.

    Inspired by the PC Game X-Wing Alliance, I painted and glued some plastic bits to a couple of TIE minis to make them look like the experimental TIE ships the Empire briefly had going on.

    Again, glad ye all like my works. :)

    Funny you should ask that, I did one of Thrawn a couple of days ago. It?s based on his appearance in Tatooine Ghost.

    And some more repainted Imperial minis:

    [link=http://i417.photobucket.com/albums/pp254/Jagger_Slade/Minis/sovprot.jpg]Sovereign Protector[/link]. If I had thought of adding blades to him at the time, he?d be Carnor Jax. Maybe the next time I get an extra Royal Guard.

    [link=http://i417.photobucket.com/albums/pp254/Jagger_Slade/Minis/stcomm.jpg]Storm Commando[/link], what Crix Madine was before defecting to the Rebels.

    I also painted an Imperial Officer?s uniform from grey to green. Though he could still be any Imp officer, for me he?s now my favorite character from the Empire/Rebellion series:

    Great new stuff here! Thrawn stood out to me in particular, was that another splice-job? It looks seamlessly fantastic! :D

    Thanks again y?all. Glad ye?s like my Thrawntrooper. :)

    Yep, I did a headswap to make Thrawn, the third one to date. My practice in head transplants is getting better, and I plan to do more. [face_devil]

    It may be a while before I get to it, but I can and will do a custom Tarkin. :)

    Wow, each time I am away for some time (and for some silly reasons) the fanart thread is full of great new art pieces. And it is especially your thread that is blooming with new, innovative stuff.

    [:D]

    Great, simply great.

    And once more you put me in front of a big problem. Choosing the best one. I can´t. I like them all.

    The Tarkin one is far too awesome. I love it. :D

    I really like the Thrawn one, I think it's funny to see him dressed like that.

    The Ysanna Isard one is also great.

    I agree with moosemousse, fantastic work on Tarkin! He even looks authentically gaunt too :D I also really like your Isard mini. You're definitely getting creative with the mods, keep up the great work!

    Thanks for the compliments folks. :) I wasn't sure how Tarkin would've turned out.

    Kiki: I've thought about trying Daala, but couldn't find a suitable mini for it. I'm surprised Wizards hasn't done one of her, Isard, or Pellaeon.

    As I mentioned in my previous post here, here's some custom minis I did on certain video game characters, be it from NES, PS2 and so on. Got plenty more of these types planned to make, and will get around to them eventually.

    I love your mara jade ! she looks exactly as in the game. the Jedi Knight games rock ^____^
    I'm wondering is the mini's size to small to put an LED in the lightsabre? a flashing saber would be really cool!
    Nice work on HK-47 too... I never met him in the game being stuck at the beginning :( but he looked cool and so does your mini^^

    Thanks for the comments people. I hope to start painting some new minis soon. There be moments that I spend more time planning to customize the little fellas than actually getting to it.

    It's a nice idea and may be possible, but someone else could try it. I don't have the tools or the know-how to attempt such a thing. I only be using metallic and bright paints for the lightsaber blades, or keep what they originally had.

    *totally fell in love with the Tarkin one... [face_love]*

    I should not have seen so many old Hammer Production films recently.

    Anyway, all your latest pieces are simply great. And it is always good to hear you explain how you achieve things.
