Discussion on Goldenrod's Republic Commando progress within the Expanded Universe Bounty Hunters forum, part of the Star Wars Universe category; Just wanted to share some progress i've made on my
vary cool love the blood smear look of the paint
Hey, that's pretty good! Did you build all of that yourself?
IIts a kit i'm puttin together,modifing and paintin like a TK.
If you mean build by me scuplting and making the armor then no.
Looking good. Sev style huh? nice. keep it up. Gotta love commandos.
Nice WIP. I really like it. I have always wanted a RC but I am too **** lazy to make one.
The weathering is looking really good.
weathering emulates the game really well. I love your Sev so far
Yes it does! For second there I thought you had just posted a screencap! Can't wait to see it all done!
Wow looking good. Looks alittle inflexible hope it wont be to uncomfortable.
That is an amazing piece of work right there. I can't wait to see it up and around.
Just finished up the back and butt armor.
Believe it or not I have not used an airbrush on any of this RC kit. Its all chalk pastels with paint brushes.
Then sealed with a satin clear cote. I like this technique waaaay better than the airbrush. You get the same effect but without all the hassel of cleaning and setup of the airbrush.

Nice going ner vod. and fast too. Oya! lovin it.
Well your technique definitely works great! I always thought Sev was the coolest looking one
Yeah i really like it.
This technique allows you to go fast wit great results. I like it because it gives you the airbrush look without the headache of setup,cleanup and paint mixing and etc. I have 2 airbrushes and know how to use them very well but i barely use them if ever. Once you done this pastel chalk tech and get the hang of it(which isn't hard)and have reference pics to go by as you work its alot of fun really. If you don't like it you can take a wet towel and wipe it off and start over.
I was taught this tech by a pro model minature builder and FX guy (Carl Horner) that works in Hollywood in college days many,many moons ago. He the underwater minatures for the Abyss. Great guy, had alot to share in different techs. And alot of cool stories while workin on different films.
Look'n great ner vod!
Bump. Got any updates?
