Heavy Weapons Sand Pirate

The sand pirates of Tattooine carry all manner of weapons, from primitive metal knives to stolen military hardware. This particular sand pirate, a member of the elite "Black Guard", carries a Merr-Sonn Man-Portable Concussion Missile Launcher used to bring down low flying freighters or blast apart fortifications erected against sand pirate attacks.

Pelvis/legs- TAC Baron Fel
Kama- CW ARC Trooper (modded)

I love the head on this custom, it has a very "McQuarrie"-esque look to it and fits very well in the established Star Wars Universe!

Nice job, Spectre! You're right, very reminiscent of McQuarrie's work. Looking forward to seeing more of your Sand Pirates (I think I have another of those heads if you're looking to make more of these guys). Happy customizing!

You have master dry brushing and weathering...your skill are now complete. Just need to start casting. Every now and again the Chap Mei line has some nice hidden jems, this was one and works nicely with whole attire of a desert trooper.
