Thanks Rick for the comment and gratitude, your one cool dude in my book. Let me know if you ever decide to sell any of your customs, your one of the better ones who emphasize realism in your work. Seriously, I'm dying to get my hands on one of them. Let me know buddy.
Yes, shock Troopers. So little has to be done paintwise. The base fig is almost perfect and the helmet is a match. I just got done putting the flag patches on the shoulder pocket and they look great. Blacked out the balaclvas, cobra on the shields and vest. Going to add lego sail mag pouches to the vests with removable mags, side arms and custom holster on the thigh.
Don't have an extra. I get them from Mauraders. You've ordered from there right, no? I have it in Tan, OD Green and all black. All black one has the night scope. If you want one of them I'll just send it to you and get another one next time I order. Let me know.
Yea, make sure to water mark your stuff. That to me reeks of something a tad shady. Who's to say that "the winner" isn't someone that it doesn't need to get sent to. I still may put a picture there but seeing how it's random at the end I may just use something else. Plus, he says it's getting moved to the end of August. I've seen no updates on the site.
I appreciate the compliment, but I have a lot to still learn and depend on a lot of the guys here for info and tips. Welcome aboard and if I can help great and or if you have insight on anything I welcome any criticism.
I'm glad this fire thing came up because I would like to introduce fire and smoke into some of my shots. Your problem reminded me of the movie trick which I had completely forgotten about. Smoke will be much trickier because of the dissapation but I'll find a way.
I will try to get this together for ya. If you have ever seen Lord of the Rings, it was used in that movie to great effect in the third installment. I realised it when I was checking that thread out. I will probably have to watch the extras dvd and attempt to make a CRUDE diagram. My drawing ablilities are lacking, hence the emphasis on crude.
I uh don't do alt uni. I've checked it out a few times but I just can't get into it. It seemed like some were trying to get me to define my "Joeverse". When it comes to that I just know what I don't like/won't do. You may have noticed I stay away from the sci-fi/ninja stuff. I may have to work on a story this winter.
