Wurth Skidder (Human Jedi Knight)

Wurth Skidder was an aggressive young Jedi Knight who participated in the battles of Ithor and Gyndine during the early part of the Yuuzhan Vong invasion. Wurth leaned toward Kyp Durron's eye-for-an-eye attitude, and was determined to avenge his Jedi friend Miko Reglia, who was killed by the Yuuzhan Vong. Wurth allowed himself to be captured at the battle of Gyndine and worked to understand the Yuuzhan Vong's combat-controlling Yammosk. Wurth was broken by the Yuuzhan Vong commander holding him and he died in captivity despite a courageous rescue effort led by Durron and Ganner Rhysode.

Parts: Head (POTJ Obi-Wan Kenobi), Torso (Dagobah Luke Skywalker), Arms (Dagobah Luke Skywalker), Legs (COMMTech Greedo), Lightsaber (Any).

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

Reference: At the time I made this figure, I was uanble to find any pictures of Wurth Skidder, so this figure was entirely based on the image I drew from reading the New Jedi Order novels.

Step One: I assembled the necessary parts using the boiling water method and then allowed the figure to cool completely.

Step Two: I sanded and filed down any rough edges.

Step Three: Next, I painted figure, as desired.

Step Five: Finally, I applied a coat of Testor's Dull-Cote to protect the paint and remove the shine.
