It’s be a few weeks since my last update. I’m taking a break from my ‘Mines of Orzammar’ project. I’m not finding it fun at the moment so I’m taking a bit of a break. I’m in a Knights of the Old Republic mood and created this little Sith Trooper:
I’m quite pleased with it. The helmet is not identical to the original. The visor is wider than it probably should be and the gap between pieces should be a bit wider. The back of the helmet is a bit plain.
That said, I actually really like it and since I’m creating a minifigure helmet rather than an exact replica, I think it works. Also, had I not mentioned it, would anyone have noticed? This is my original sketch of what I was aiming for.
The original armour is quite shiny which is something I’ve not replicated here. I chose a light grey colour, which is OK.
I also created a Sith Commando, which is just simple reskin.
I’m thinking of make battlepack with three of the troopers and one of the commandos (although I’ll call him a Squad leader). With them will come what I’m calling an air defence cannon. That’s still being designed however.
