Custom number 60!!
Well I'm finally callin this one a day, after I took the pictures I spotted a couple bits I forgot but ho hum, i'm not takin em again. Anyhoo as I've said I did a 3.75" scale of my username a while back and I always thought it would be cool to have one in 6" so here he is a total of 14 different figures donated parts to this one.
Whilst working on him I dreamt up his back story:
He was once a jedi apprentice, during order 66 paranoia was rife among the Jedi. DT was caught reading up on the dark art of the Sith and his master assumed he was the Sith that had been hiding amongst them. He was not and he was merely reading up on the Sith to be better armed with knowledge so he could find their enemy and destroy them. Before he had chance to explain this to his master he attacked leaving him nearly dead on the floor of the Jedi temple. Darth managed to escape using the hate that was running through his body as an aid. He was soon found by the emperors personal clone battalion and brought before the dark lord himself. Although half dead Palpatine could see the hate and anger running through the fallen Jedi's veins. He was fitted with the much dreaded Sith Stalker armour ( said to be painfuly grafted onto the wearers body) and sent out to reep his revenge on the jedi and one day his former master. He is quite unique as a Sith in the fact that he chooses to carry a green lightsaber, the saber is green to reflect it's more defensive nature. Around his waist he wears the trophies of his favourite training exercise, Krayt Dragon hunting on Tatooine.
