Some of you may know me as Darth Nihilus from the 501st Legion (SL31310) and I had the pleasure of meeting some of you at Dreamnight Taronga Zoo last year and Supanova this year.

So I think I want, nay NEED, to become a Wookiee.
Aiming for about 7 foot 5 eventually.

This should be fun.

Regards
Sez.

Pics so far (ignore the green wool - practising latch hooking Smile):

Hopefully finishing off the feet this weekend before latch hooking hair and adhering to the finished boot. Yay!

Blue milk, of course! We have pics of our pilots Darthbarry and red9 enjoying some somewhere.

Welcome Sez, good to see you on the light side and I keenly look forward to seeing your wookie progress. Some of our pics with your Darth Nihilus pics from Heroes and Villains are fantastic, it was great meeting and working with you there and since.

Welcome to Tython!

Sez, please familiarise yourself with the 2013 Tython mission planning calendar and our mission planning area. All our troops are always open to any 501st, MM, R2 builders and Novus Ordo costumes unless otherwise specified... And I've never seen one otherwise specified! Wink

Please feel free to add fresh troops to the mission planning area if you hear of anything that we can help with.

Dont Listen to Fyr Sarah, it isnt blue milk - how absurd. Its a real delicacy.

Its extracted by hand. Squeezed from the pituitary gland of Wampas and shipped from Hoth on ice. Expensive but worth it to go top shelf. I will look forward to our first glass in December - my shout Laughing Laughing Laughing

Things to keep in mind and this has happened with Payney's Chewie which he bought off Dougie Fett. Keep in mind that your legs will look longer, so you will need to have the hair longer around the hip area and elbow to wrist to give the illusion that you don't have a shot body with short arms and long legs. Something to think ahead with is because you are a similar foot design Duck used with his Chewie, you may want to look at making a shin guard that is designed to bring the bottom of your pants past "your" shoes, that way you don't have a box feet look.

Again these are things to look at, weather or not you listen to me or any of the wookiee builders that will give you the same advice.

Out of curiosity are you making a character wookiee or generic?


Chewbacca.
Thanks for the advice.

Took them for a test run on Saturday. More glooping, bogging and sanding to be done but hey, I've given myself until June 2014 for completion.

7 foot 2 easy!

Still a bit of work to do with regard to stability (have put in a piece of wood like a T junction at the bottom of the ankle) but pretty happy so far.
