Chris, Definitely give it a try. It's relatively cheap & lots of fun and relaxing. We have a whole section for it. If you have any questions, just shout them out.

I've done a couple of simple customs, as well as helping Clint out with assembling and painting some rebel fleet troopers, for the TXI giveaway swag for CE3. I really enjoyed doing them and I think you'll get a real kick out of it too. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

Just make 2 of each custom. That way, you have one to trade with other customizers. Cool
