Hi All,

While on patrol Trooper RH1968 and his Recon Squad take are break after 4 hours trudging thru the forest floor on the planet Belhun. The planet use to be one of the main bases for the Rebels until Vader found it and destroyed it a few months after the destruction of first Death Star.

The Troopers deployed to this planet make constant patrols to insure that the Rebels or even smugglers don't set up of a base of operations. The Troopers wear modified armour as the normal Stormtrooper armour makes it harder to traverse the unlevel ground and vegetation.

RECIPE

Stormtrooper - The Trooper has the torso, lower legs, forearms, hands and shoulder aromour from the Hasbro Sandtrooper and the Helmet from the Hasbro Stormtooper and the new knee pad armour is from a 3-3/4" GI Joe figure, the upper arms and legs are from Hasbro's Han Solo figure. The joints were superglued and pinned and then I used putty to cover the joints and once the putty was dry I used tissue paper to cover the cloth areas to give it a more fabric look.

The weapon is modified from the barrel of the BlasTech DLT-19 Heavy Blaster Rifle and the body of a BlasTech DLT-20A which both have been cut to the desired length and then pinned and superglued together.

Base - Is built up using high denisty foam and glued together and once dry cut to the desired shape, I used a broken piece of a tree branch and then cut out some of the foam so it would sit correctly on the base. I then used a mix of fine sand and plaster of paris and covered the base, once the snad and paris mixed was dry I painted the base with a mix of white PVA glue and Brown paint and once the base was covered I used potty mix and covered the base and then let it dry.

When the ground work had dried I removed any excess potty mix and glued the Trooper inplace and then started placing the plants inplace by drilling holes into the ground work and using super glue to keep them in place once they have been inserted in the holes. The larger plants are just plastic fishtank plants which were given a slight wash of different greens, the small grass like plants are from a company called J's Works which are printed paper plants and the smaller shrub type plants are from The Army Painter.
