The Jawa Project
Jawas a just a blast. Everyone loves Jawas.
This little guy was really a blast to sculpt and I finished him before
my Tuscan Raider. Of course that has a bit to do with the fact that
he is rather small and simple.
I started with a simple armature out of copper wire
sculpting the feet. Then I sculpted the body and hood in one setting.
After that set I did the bandolier which I think turned out really well.
I really felt like I was getting the hang of pouches. I started using
this type of pouch on the chest bandolier of the Tuscan but I could tell
on this piece that I was getting much better at it. That's not a
light saber he is holding. It's just some sort of tecno gadget.
I was really going to droid remote but it got a little large. The
top part is the muzzle of an M1 Abrams tank miniature.
I think he turned out really well and I had a blast
painting him up. I am planning on doing several more Jawas and will
probably cast some up for personal use.
The only other Jawa miniature was one West
End Games did several years ago that came in a blister pack with Luke and
the only Tuscan Raider they ever did on foot. I also doubt Wizards
of the Coast will be coming out with Jawas either because they seen intent
on doing miniatures for players and not game masters and they seem to not
realize that what they really should be doing is making Star Wars specific
miniatures instead of human adventurers you could get from just about any
Science fiction miniature line.
OOO TEE NEE !
