Star Wars Miniatures Mod:Captain Panaka

Posted in Star Wars, Star Wars Miniatures, Star Wars Miniatures Mods with tags , , on March 1, 2009 by jayngo26

I never had much use for the Naboo Soldier figure when it came out. I don’t know-maybe it’s the whole Episode 1 thing, but since there was no Captain Panaka figure at the time, I decided to mod one of my existing Naboo Soldiers into Panaka. I think the colors came out really well. The blue and dark, red/maroon were hard to mix. Anyway, making this Panaka mod made it more interesting to use the Naboo Soldiers back then. I am not even sure what the official Panaka stats are. I still don’t have that figure. But, I like what I came up with and it worked really good for some scenarios I played.

Star Wars Miniatures Mod:ARC Trooper Captain

I loved the ARC Troopers from the Clone Wars cartoons back in 2005, so I modded one of my ARC troopers into a Captain a few years back. Check him out…

Star Wars Miniatures Mod:Admiral Ackbar

Posted in Star Wars, Star Wars Miniatures, Star Wars Miniatures Mods with tags , , on February 28, 2009 by jayngo26

So, this is the Admiral Ackbar mod I made before the actual one was released. I used the existing Mon Calamari Mercenary figure and painted it to resemble Ackbar. The stats are a direct copy of Grand Moff Tarkin’s. I just felt the Rebels needed a character to counteract Tarkin’s abilities. The Admiral Ackbar that was released by Wizard’s was actually quite a bit more powerful that my version. Guess I underestimated good old Ackbar…

Star Wars Miniatures Mod:Darth Xzortusa

Posted in Star Wars, Star Wars Miniatures, Star Wars Miniatures Mods with tags , on February 27, 2009 by jayngo26

So, here is another one of my mods from 2005. I wanted to make more Sith Lords, so I converted a Twi’lek for this model. Darth Xzortusa is not Star Wars canon. He is my own creation.

Darth Xzortusa was a powerful Sith Lord who lived at the height of the Sith Empire. His skill with a lightsaber and surprising speed led to the end of many Jedi. Legend has it, that Darth Xzortusa was betrayed by an apprentice he was teaching in secret. After learning much from his master, the dark apprentice apparently kill Lord Xzortusa in his sleep.

Star Wars Miniatures Mod:Grand Admiral Thrawn

Posted in Star Wars, Star Wars Miniatures, Star Wars Miniatures Mods with tags , , on February 27, 2009 by jayngo26

Grand Admiral Thrawn is my favorite Star Wars character. Growing up it was always Boba Fett, but after reading the Timothy Zahn novels, Thrawn took that spot. So, when I was into the Star Wars Miniatures back in 2005, I was upset that they were yet to release a Thrawn figure. I couldn’t wait, so I made my own. I used the Tarkin model for my Thrawn. Interestingly, when the Thrawn figure did come out, my stat card was not too far off from theirs. Hope you like it! I apologize, my mod got a little “dinged” up these past few years…

Star Wars Miniatures Mod:Darth Rageous

Posted in Star Wars, Star Wars Miniatures, Star Wars Miniatures Mods with tags , , on February 24, 2009 by jayngo26

This is the first of my modded Sith Lords that I made back in 2005. This character is not Star Wars canon. I created him myself.

Darth Rageous was a very powerful Wookie Sith Lord during the times of the Old Republic. Not many Wookies were seduced by the Dark Side of the Force, which made him very unusual. His patchy white hair indicated he was very old according to Wookie age and the blood-red war paint he would put on his body struck fear into the hearts of his enemies. It is unclear what happened to Darth Rageous, though many believe that he was destroyed in a battle against the Jedi somewhere during that time period…

Another Star Wars Miniatures Mod

So, here is my Gonk Droid. When the Gonk Droid was released for the Star Wars Miniatures, I couldn’t help but think about the original Kenner toy. The mini was grey and dull. So, here is my variation, giving homage to the Kenner toy from the 70’s. Enjoy!
