Lirin Car'n is the back-up Kloo Horn player for the Modal Nodes. Because his talents are infrequently needed, he can usually be found playing sabacc in whatever watering hole the Nodes are currently playing. Lirin has displayed an intense hatred of all humans.
Parts: Head (Cantina Band Member), Torso (Cantina Band Member), Arms (Cantina Band Member), Legs (Cantina Band Member), Coat (Speeder Bike Luke Skywalker).
Supplies: X-acto knife, file or emery board, brushes, Testors paints and Testors Dull-Cote.
Reference: Photo stills from Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.
Step One: This isn't much of a "custom" figure because didn't really do much to the basic figure. First, I removed the black shirt thingy that comes with the Band Member and replaced it with the poncho from a Speeder Bike Luke Skywalker figure.
Step Two: Next, I re-painted the figure according to my reference pictures. I did not make any major changes to the color scheme, I simply dry-brushed a bit of "dirt" and "sand" colors over his clothing.
Step Three: Finally, I applied a coat of Testors Dull-Cote to seal the paint and reduce the shine.
Wish I was there!
