Honour Guard on Yavin 4 (built
I built two figures of
these figure type. For this, I choose two General Madine figures
from the 80th and cut them their heads away. Then, I cut the gloves
away, so the arms looked like the jacket down to the hands. The
same, I did with the legs. Doing this, I had to cut away some pleats
of the trousers and also had to cut some lines into the former boots,
so they look also like trousers.
The head completely with helmet, I copied from a Rebel Fleet Trooper
(Tantive 4 Defender), so I first made a negative form with silicon
milk and then copied it with surfacer to a new positive. I cleaned
it and mounted it on the body.
Then, I painted the figure. Jacket and trousers became dark grey,
half-shoes black, hands and face skin-coloured, helmet white. After
drying, I stuck on the helmet a black screen, which covers eyes
and nose. In the left hand, the figures got a 16cm long, 2,5cm thick
black staff. Ready.
