Oddly enough, the cracks on the Urak-Hai, at least from the pics provided add to the realism for me.Hi Guys,
Kneejoint... Sorry I did not get back to your PM earlier.
I do not use the email that is connected to my OSW account anymore, so it's the luck of the draw when it comes to PM's.
I signed on the other day after being MIA from the board for about 4-5 months.
Anywhoo... Here are some pics of Dyed OLD HT Gumby bodies.
I stress that they are old.
I'm not sure about the new ones but many of the older version I have are Literally crumbling apart.
I boiled liquid RIT and then painted it on for one and the other is simply watered down Citidel (Warhammer) water based Paint.
The skin on the older versions seems to be much more porous than the new HT bodies.
Below you can see where the elbow is cracking.
Mind you this is a first generation Body and this pic was taken 2-3 years after the fig was painted. I doubt that the paint had any effect on the constitution of the rubber or whatever it is the body is made of.
Hope this is of some help.
