Exclamation Acklay References

Help!

I don't suppose anybody has any HI-RES images of an Acklay I can use as Reference and Textures for my Acklay vehicle!
(I have a few but nothing really useable for texturing purposes).
Perhaps if someone could take some digital pix of the toy and e-mail them to me - that would be great!

Post Thanks

Forgot about RebelScum!

I've finished the model for the most part (Apart from a few tweaks needed here and there - I'm trying to keep the polycount as low as possible). So just have to work out the texturing and I'll post a pic.

Is it just me or is the toy Acklay based on an earlier design for the film and not the final one in the film, 'cos it seems to feature lots of extra 'fins' along it's back and neck.

East To Build - Hard To Texture

Modeling Took me a day - Texturing, so far another day & a half. Lots of tweaking to do (If I get enough time). Animating it and getting it in game and working will be the hard parts!!!

Is this just going to be vehicle, or can I fight against it too?

Well, I hope to get it so you can fight it too -

BUT (And it's a big but!)

I don't have (or use 3DS MAX or SoftimageXSi) which are currently the programs used for doing all the animating etc.

So.... It really comes down to someone else with the motivation (Skill & Patience) to do it for me.

I can make all this stuff (& I'd animate it too if I could get some Lightwave tools for doing this).

I'm currently working with Duncan_10158 on this and we have my stap model working - so expect all the static vehicles to be made soon. However, the beasts (Dewback & Acklay - especially the Acklay since it has a 6 leg walk cycle) will take some time!

If anyone there knows any animators who can help us, that would really help out a lot!!!

click the first image to download the spider. It's animated well because the way it's weighted. You could probably pull off something like this with your acklay.

Looks interesting, will check it out as soon as I get a chance!

My current plan is to get all the static vehicles working properly first and then try the Dewback & Acklay!

BTW check out my other thread for some new model wip pix!

Thanks very much for your help
