Hi All,

When I started on this figure I wanted to visualize what a Harden Imperial Trooper would look like after surviving countless battles and re-designing his armour and equipment to suit he's needs.

RECIPE

Figure/Equipment - The figure is from the Hasbro 6" Black Series, I removed the shoulder/bicep area's and replaced them with the shoulders/biceps from a Marvel Wolverine figure. The torn bodysuit on the arms were done by using black balloons and cutting the ballon to simulate the torn suit.

The belt was modified by cutting the rectangle cartridges and replace them with small American WW2 pouches, I also used a larger Ameriacn WW2 on the back and two pouches from a 6" Marvel figure. The knife is again from a 6" Marvel figure and the sheath was made using left over pleather.

The E-11 blaster has had an extended magazine to it, the DLT-19 has been modified but removing around 1cm of the barrel and re-attaching it and the carbon scouring and damage on the armour was done by using a dremel.

I also added a magazine to the blaster and also a scope again from some Marvel figures, I made the sling by using green elastic and the front and back sling clips on the blaster were made using thin wire, I used some left over material for the chest area and attached the magazines to it.

Base - The base is and older dio which was damged so I'm using it to display the figure. The base is from a two doller shop and then had plaster of paris added, while the plaster was setting I placed two branchs which are from my back garden into the plaster and let dry.

Once dry fine sand and kitty litter was added and static grass followed that, when all was dry I painted and weathered the grass and dirt using Vallejo paints and pastels, the bushs are from woodland scenics and the larger bushes are fish tank plants which I got from the local pet shop.

Very creative with the use of the black balloons for the torn bodysuit; this came together beautifully and the diorama is awesome, as is your speciality!
