Dardo (Rodian Vigo - Black Sun)

Dardo is a vigo within the criminal organization Black Sun.

Parts: Head (POTF2 Greedo), Torso (POTJ Ellors Madak), Arms (POTJ Ellors Madak), Legs (POTJ Ellors Madak), Vest (COMMTech Greedo), Blaster (POTJ Ellors Madak).

Supplies: X-acto knife, super glue, brushes, Testors paints, Polly Scale paints and Testors Dull-Cote.

Reference: This character appeared in Dark Horse's Darth Maul graphic novel. The character was actually killed by Maul near the end of the story. Despite this, he will probably show up (with a new name) as a background figure in some future diorama. This figure was created for Yakfinities #27.

Step One: I began by removing the Ellors Madak head. The whole figure was then spray painted black.

Step Two: Once the base paint was dry, I added the Greedo head. The eye patch was made using a piece of thread and a dab of super glue. The super glue was applied heavily enough to hold the two ends of the thread and form a bump over the eye to simulate the eye patch.

Step Three: I re-painted the figure, according to the reference pictures.

Step Four: Once the paint was dry, I applied a coat of Testors Dull-Cote to protect the paint and remove the shiny appearance of the paint.
