Thanks Grimm.  Savage is on the to do list  ;)

I watched the quickening of Savage episode at the weekend on Sky, he's a bit special isn't he, definately needs to be customized and have a face off with Maul.

So send in the clones? ;)

Yes, send in the clones.

Let's start with Commander Cody receiving Order 66.


I wish I were an octopus to paint more miniatures...Cthulhu must be a great painter

Eric, is that the standard fig? No conversion?
And is it a repaint and rebase or just a rebase?
looking sweet as always.
Sending in those clones walking and not riding in style. ::wink wink::   :-)

Hi Grimm,

It's a total conversion and a resculpted helmet.

The hologram was sculpted, molded and then casted in clear bue resin (but you don't really see it on the photo).

Here is the original clone miniature.

Eric, how did you develop the awesome skills it takes to do these conversions?

Many thanks Frank.

Eric, how did you develop the awesome skills it takes to do these conversions?

To be honest some conversions were inspired by existing conversions I found on Internet : I just copied the idea.... BTW converting plastic miniatures is a piece of cake compared to pewter ones. I am used to convert miniatures : Warhammer, Mordheim,....

Here is the last conversion (may be the heaviest) : Aayla Secura



As I didn't like the Wotc one (and it was pricey) I converted the Twi'lek bodyguard. This miniature is not really well sculpted (not much details on the face) but it will do for a few cents  :)

Great conversion  :o


Though personally, I didn`t think the wotc to bad.  The fact she was released before Clone Wars became a hit pushed down her price a tat of course back then when I snatched off the `Bay
