On the new Luke, as has been mentioned, that's actually somewhat similar to what he wears in RotJ when he rescues Han from Jabba. (He does, in fact, wear two different "Jedi" outfits.) It looks great, although you could probably do one better by kitbashing the head from the stock version for the more mature "Jedi Knight" (or in this case, Sith) look. Not that I'm an expert on kitbashing, but it's just a thought. Other than that it could use a little tweaking of the tunic, a change from a cape to an actual cloak, and it'd look perfect for a movie version. I understand the intent, though. I once made up a Sith character that uses the same clothing as Luke during the Battle of Endor. :P

No Mara?! *throws trout at Manderek* Bad modder!


Everytime I look, I find it has grown more. Good job.


@AQT Except it's a lot bigger and more heavily armed. :P It's literally the SW equivalent of C&C's Mammoth Tank.

Thanks Noodles, I think I'll add the other Luke head to this model. Now the cloak is possible, but I feel kinda sorry for the model since it covers so much, and giving it a cloak make noobs think they need to deal with 'another' Anakin somehow. No Mara indeed, or a new one. There will be one more special Alliance Hero which is well known, and well desired by Teancum.. And thanks all for the compliments.

Btw: Luke isn't meant to be a Sith here - I just always felt he was more of an impure, perhaps Gray Jedi since he had so much doubts in his 'path', which is why this model kindoff visualises my imaginations of him

Not to Teancum. I'm gonna guess Dash Rendar. He isn't already in this mod, is he?

Nope.. he wasn't.. Here's the model, still searching for good reference to his blaster (properties). Also, improved Luke head (kitbashed)

Dash looks great! I like the face particularly - very realistic. The only thing I see is that the shoulder pads have some UV problems. Nice work :thumbs:

Yeah I know the pads can be improved, not only uvs, also model wise and will do. I was wondering what his main blaster was.. I thought a modified dl44 but I don't know for sure.. Anyone does?

I actually really liked the head you previously used on the Luke model. Though it's your call of course. Dash Rendar also looks really good, I really like his face.

Dash's head looks great! I'm sure the rest of his body will come together fine with some more work.

Dash is like one of my most favorite EU characters ever! Great work on the model!

The scope-less "varient" though (that never overheats and shoots a continuous stream of blaster fire :wink: ). Any ideas for secondary weapons or even a jetpack, MandeRek?

I don't know yet.. Jetpack might overdo it, but for a secondary I was thinking of some special kind of grenade, and maybe something more. But I can't find any info on his weapons, only that he has a lot.. So, suggestions?

A very powerfull, small grenade that explodes horizontally before hitting the ground, with a nice custom .fx? (there are several mentions of super-small thermal detonators that you wouldn't normally be able to get away from in some EU books)

I remember through playing Shadows of the Empire he could fire a ridiculous amount of weapons, which included: seeker missles, flamethrowers, pulse cannon (shot purple circles of electricity), and some weapon called a disruptor (like the pulse cannon, except it's green and on steroids, as it can prety much destroy anything it hits, IIRC).

The Disruptor weapon would be too overpowered if it were to function as it did in SotE (and not to mention blinding! :shock: ). Seeker missiles would be a good choice. It can be similar to the Bulldog RLR except no locking on required. The flamethrower is kind of overdone so maybe go with the Pulse Cannon as the short range weapon (which fires slow-moving but powerful shots). In the game Dash also had a stun weapon that would emit a stun wave affecting enemies within a certain radius. Maybe a weapon similar to a buff/force wave that can knock down enemies or freeze them temporarily?
