Leonia Tavira (Human Pirate Leader)

Leonia Tavira was the sixteen year old wife of an elderly Moff who died rather suspiciously. Not one to pass up an opportunity, Leonia assumed the title and powers of her former lover without bothering to notify the Empire of her husband's untimely death. When the Empire began to splinter, she took her considerable wealth and went into the pirating business.

Parts: Head (Rystall), Hair (Ewok Celebration Leia), Torso (Rystall), Arms (Rystall), Left Hand (Princess Leia), Legs (Rystall), Boots (COMMTech Han Solo), Blaster (any).

Supplies: Dremel, X-acto knife, emery board, file, brushes, Testors paints and Testors Dull-Cote.

Reference: Descriptions from various novels and drawings from the X-Wing: Rogue Squadron comics.

Step One: First, I cut off the hooved feet and replaced them with the boots.

Step Two: Then, I removed Rystall's hair and replace it with Leia's.

Step Three: I also cut off the left hand and replaced it with the new one.

Step Four: I painted the figure, as desired.

Step Five: Finally, I applied a coat of Testors Dull-Cote to seal the paint and reduce the shine.
