Yes it's Tiger Lily.
I wish I were an octopus to paint more miniatures...Cthulhu must be a great painter

Here is a new bounty hunter from Clone Wars series : Sugi.



And Padme Amidala as she appears in the movie and the series.





It should be easy to identify the original miniatures I used for these customs.  ;)

Many thanks Anevilgiraffe...and you are right, if you don't pay attention to the WOTC range it's har to find who is who and hard to find miniatures for conversions.

Grimm : Sorry Grimm but I don't see what is missing...did I forget a bouty hunter in this group ? and if you are refering to Bane's vehicle I won't do it.

Well now then eric. I figure it was an easy answer. The one scratch i didnt see there. Wasnt a bounty hunter. Wasnt Bane's vehicle though now i am intrigued. It was Speeder Bikes of course.  :-)

I am liking the use of the current WotC lines indeed. Keep it up and churn more out when you can.

Yes Grimm but be patient, it's for another time.  ;)
I am working on miniatures for now...vehicles and sceneries should be done later on. I will cheat a bit for the speeder bikes as I bought some Titanium ones but I will scratchbuild another version....surprise.

I'm gonna try my hand at making a similar Cad Bane (the forty, fifty bucks the WOTC one is fetching is beyond what I can justify spending).  Great conversions here! Really stellar work.

Did you make the head of the fish guy from green stuff?
Check out THE CROGAN ADVENTURES, a historical adventure graphic novel series available from your local bookstore or comic shop (or, of course, Amazon).  I make 'em.

Swoop?

Yes swoop. I bought a few swoops and I wanted to convert them as speeder bikes but as I bought speeder bikes I'll convert them into something different.

A swoops race such as the landspeeders race (the other Star Wars thread) could be a good idea and I already have rules for this : Crushing ruleset would be perfect.

Yes the head and the arms of the fish guy were made with green stuff. The original miniature is the Polis Massa medic. You are right paying up to $50 for Cad bane is not worth it as you can convert it for $2   ;)

I finished my second group of bounty hunters : Aurra Sing band as seen in Clone Wars season 2 episodes 21-22.



Young Bobba Fett (a simple repaint) :



Castas (totally converted with 3 miniatures) :



Bossk (a simple repaint) :



Hondo Ohnaka the pirate leader and ex-boyfriend of Aurra (total conversion) :



I am still converting and painting characters from the Clone Wars series and there are more to come. It's a bit a speed painting as I have tons of miniatures to paint so I never spend more than 45 minutes to one hour on such miniatures (that's tabletop, no more).

These are really great - I'm always amazed how well these paint up,

You mentioned the Crushing ruleset? Anymore details?

Crushing is a cars game I wrote with other gamers. It's designed to play a gang (cars only but you could play motorcycles or trucks too). It's a fast, easy and funny game and you can get the free english rules here :

There is an experience system and it could be very easy to use the rules to play swoops or landspeeders races.

As far as I remember are rules for Pedestrians also included?

Yes, Crushing would be great.
Reminds me to play it again, was a long time ago now.
