Imperial Infantry Officer

This is an Infantry Officer in the Imperial Army. His uniform was inspired by the one worn by Lt Janek Sunber during the landing on Jabiim in the Star Wars: Empire comic series. He was created for an upcoming diorama.

Parts: Head (Saga Imperial Officer), Torso (Saga Imperial Officer), Arms (Saga Imperial Officer), Legs (PotJ TIE Fighter Pilot), Load Bearing Equipment (25th Anniversary Cobra Python Patrol Officer), E-11 Blaster Rifle (Saga Imperial Officer).

Supplies: Super Sculpey, X-acto knife, super glue, paintbrushes, Testors paints and Testors Dull-Cote.

Reference: I used a couple of different illustrations from the Star Wars: Empire comic series.

Almost the entire figure was a Saga Collection Imperial Officer. I removed the non-articulated legs and replaced them with the ones from the TIE pilot that came with the PotJ TIE Interceptor. The figure and the load bearing equipment were both painted and left to dry. The ammunition pouches were made using push molds and Super Sculpey. Once the figure was dry, I added the load bearing equipment and then super glued the ammunition pouches to either hip.
