So, I found this:

Battlefront's EE-4 blaster rifle.
Now I NEED to build one!


And I am going to try for Support Brigades, Assassin.

Back end and grip look like that of an MP-40.  You might start there as a base.

It's been a while...


I need to get the full video of this Click360 thing...

I've gone through a few changes since I last posted.
Those spats worked out, for a bit, but I have to go back to the Sith boots, till I can get a new pair of work boots.  Had to troop the Cincinnati Comic Expo in those brown boots, and doing my statue shtick was painful.  Might just stick with them, since I can fit my ankle aircast in them...  :'(
I did a repaint of my Verpine Shatter Rifle.  She's now a slick satin black!

Also painted the vibrobeskad, but don't have a pic of that yet.  Made a half-sheath for that, worked out VERY nicely!
I'm in the process of sewing up a new vest. Just dyed it black, but it came out a charcoal color. :-\  Picked up some rare earth magnets (pill-battery sized, 2000 gauss), plan is to use these to attach the plates to the vest, and move the shoulder plates to the flightsuit shoulders.  Will be a bit better, heat-wise, for summer troops, since I just swapped the original NAVY trenchvest for a longer leather one.
I need to build a new back plate, maybe even recycle the old one to build a segmented back...

Been looking around various airsoft places, comparing the in-game EE-4 model to several different pistols and rifles, and cannot come up with anything even close.  It's such an amalgam of parts, I'd be better off just custom making the thing out of wood.  >:(

Couple small updates:
Will post up pics when I can, but I altered the look of the paint on the bucket. Added a set of "horns" around a large cartouche. Not sure if I'll be adding lettering to it, though.  I did add in some new names to my tribute panels, the notable one being Carrie Fisher.

Stole my wife's spats, since we are quite a ways from being done with her kit, ATM, and have no work space to finish, either...  :'(

Work is also on hold for a new bullpup Verp rifle, and I am starting to collect parts for an E-11D build.

So, even with the delays and sub-zero temps, I am getting ready to app-in for Assassins Brigade. Will try to get pics up and sent in soon.

So, here I am, during the first half of the Rogue One troop:

I swapped out the boots about an hour in, those things have absolutely NO arch support or padding...  :'( >:( :'(

Not sure if I posted these, but here are Thing One and Thing Two


And the latest additions to the tribute panel:


And the new "face"


And now the beginning of my E-11D build:


Let me know what you think.

I personally really like the paint job for the helmet, the names on the back add a lot to it too!

Verp looks very nice too, how long did it take for you to get that staff assembled?

My staves maybe took me five minutes to assemble, but about a day or so to paint.  I just found parts I liked at Lowes/Home Despot, and went from there. ;)

Minor update:
Since I have no space to build in, ATM, I am dipping my toes into the 3D printing pool.  My local library has a couple of small to medium size printers, and are running classes in how to use them.  Does anyone have files they would recommend?  I would like to print a couple of thermal detonators, maybe the flash hider for a DL-44. I think they charge $0.10 an ounce, so it doesn't sound too expensive.
