Sixtus Quin (Human Special Forces Trooper)

Sixtus Quin was the leader of an Imperial Special Forces unit. While on an assignment on Tatooine, Sixtus and his men were betrayed and abandoned by their commander. They chose to join with Rogue Squadron in foiling the Imperial commander's operation. Afterward, Sixtus and his remaining men joined Elscol Loro's Rebel cell and continued operations against the Empire.

Parts: Head (Mace Windu), Torso (Sandtrooper), Upper Arms (Dagobah Luke Skywalker), Lower Arms (Sandtrooper), Legs (Sandtrooper), Blaster Rifle (Stormtrooper).

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

Reference: Dark Horse's X-Wing Rogue Squadron - Battleground: Tatooine.

Step One: First, I removed the head and arms, replacing them with the Mace Windu head and the Dagobah Luke arms.

Step Two: Then, I used the Dremel to sand the stomach armor smooth so that the figure appears to be only wearing the chest armor.

Step Three: I cut the arms off just below the elbow and attached the Sandtrooper's lower arms to the Luke arms.

Step Four: I painted the figure according to my references.

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