=Zosh Rupolque=

A widley renoun mechanic Zosh has been employed by the former Republic, worked on Jeid craft, has recently helped with some designs for Upgrades to Imperial crafts and is currently doing some frelance work. His skill with a Hydro-Spanner is equaled only by his uncanny ability to find the problem just by listening and feeling the craft he is working on. Because of this unique talent Zosh uses only a small UB-73 scanning droid to evaluate the rest of the ship while he works and an 615-L assitant droid to do meanial tasks and fetch tools. He costs a bit more than your average space Mecahnic, but his quality and speed make him well worth the Credits......

Awesome paint and backstory as usual, but for my money, that tiny mechanic droid steals the show!

Wow, I REALLY like this one. Your paint job on it is great as usual.

I love the little hook on his belt to hang stuff. Excellent detail. Nice use of the endor trooper body. What forearms are those?

The droids are a superb touch to it.

Great! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

I really like the backstory on this guy. Makes him sound kind of like an undiscovered Jedi. I like your use of a droideka and treadwell mixed together to create an (I'm guessing here) assistant droid that looks really cool. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif I would definitely want to get this figure if the big H ever made him, which they won't. Oh well, maybe someday they'll have a vote similar to the Saga Legends one for customs and he'll finish in the top 4.

Jedistyle, another great figure, enjoyed seeing his backstory. I love the way you painted his jumpsuit - it took me a bit to recognize it as the rebel Endor trooper, but the way you painted it, it brings a whole new look to that outfit. Also, I noticed how you had weathered it on the knees, and where some of his equipment rests to be faded-out - -- that's just top-notch detail, and very well executed.

Thanks for sharing, I think you've inspired me to repaint an endor troop for myself!

The detailing and paint on this one are excellent. The fading at the joints really makes this figure come alive. I'm very impressed.

love the paint work on the face really brings him alive. and adding a real strap to the bag makes it hang so much more natrualy than those made by "H", a beautifully executed figure.

Great group! Your use of parts is very creative and the paint aps really bring the figures to life. Thanks for posting these inspiring customs.

Can't get over how awesome those droids are.

J-style, this is fantastic as usual, and now that I know your painting secret, I'm gonna try some http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/wink.gif. Is that actually wear on his pants at the knees (the lighter blue color)? Good lord, that's attention to detail!
