Stcommander;5675535Indeed, Jesse, Boil, Waxer, Tup, and Kix have already been started. Let me tell you, that Phase 1 Jesse was a pain to deal with. Getting the Republic symbol correctly skinned on to the head was such a pain. If you would like to see picture of my current set ups let me know and I will get some up. And thank you for the encouragement. :)

Gah, I can imagine the frustration with Jesse's armour. His is certainly the one I'm most apprehensive about, second only to getting a good Rex Phase 2 helmet. I'm scouring every clone model pack I can find for a Phase 2 clone helm with the eye-stem attached to it that I can reskin into Rex's, as adding the stem myself would mean re-weighing the entire model (and I can't weigh models for the life of me). Same problem applies to a good Phase 2 Wolffe.

And sure, I'd love to see some pics of those guys!

The Phase 2 versions of Jesse and Kix are really at basic stages I really haven't gotten to the core of them yet. Dogma and Hardcase however are coming along the most. Kix: 501stphaseii001.png Jesse:501stphaseii000.png Tup: 501stphaseii002.png As you can see, the Phase II's of these characters still have a ways to go. The Phase 1 of Jesse however is very close to being finished. 501stphasei000.png Kix still needs some work as well. 501stphasei001.png As far as Rex goes... captainrex000.png

Very nice! And I like the subtle shift between the lighter blue the 501st had in their Phase 1 kit and the darker blue they adopted in Phase 2.

Finally managed to find what I was looking for, and with some .skin file jiggory-pokery was able to slap together the right helmet-antenna combination to form the basis for characters like Fives, Echo, Rex and Wolffe in their Phase 2 incarnations. Just using the standard 501st color scheme for now:

That's as much as I can do on my laptop, but next week when I return to my computer (and Photoshop!) I'll start work on some skins for them.

I'm not sure if anyone is following this here but I'd like to provide the people with a new update. This skin has had more than just skinning done but also some modeling work as well. While I am responsible for the paint and scratching, I am not the one who did this fantastic modelling work. That honor belongs to someone who I shall call "Tavik Kenobi". Without him skins such as these would not have been possible. So I give special thanks to him. Anyway, let me know what you think. gree1000.png
