My favorite is the Commando with the Camo on his face. I have seen that figure and have wanted to do something with that head. Very cool setup. We have all seen alien pilots, and white pilots, but it is not too often you see an (African -American) pilot. Great stuff and nice paint job on the Marauder guns.

Nice customs as ever, I am thinking of doing an entire squadron of african american pilots, similair to the Tuskegee Airmen of WWII. I am going to use there original nick name the Red-Tail Angels.

I had the great honor of meeting a real life Tuskegee Airman, when I did the ghost walk of elizabeth city in 2004, it was a great honor and a great story he told everyone who stopped and listened to that particular part of the ghost walk.

The last rebel commando isn't doing it for me. I think it is because his head is tilted so far back.

While anyone can do human head sculpts, I expect more from you for some reason, Dan. Ain't that a burden? cool.gif Guess I want aliens, being any or all you have that aren't going to your pirates.

I do like the repaints of the NCM Rifles. The green parts with gunmetal/silver dry brush work. Is that enamel or acrylic? I've given up on acrylics on Marauder Guns and go right for enamels, no worries about chipping/sealing etc.

The last Rebel Commando is looking towards the sky, searching for enemy airspeeders....yeah, that's the ticket biggrin.gif

There will be aliens, just wait and see. I just happened to have a hankering to do some humans this time is all laugh.gif

I tend to use acrylics for everything now as they do not have any fumes.
