One's Head On Another's Body

I've seen a few really accurate attempts at taking the head off a model such as Luke Skywalker or Han Solo and putting it on another body like the Stormtrooper. I'm interested in creating a sort of trooper-model by taking the head off one model and placing it on the armoured body of another and I was wondering about the steps and tools I would need to take in order to achieve that.

I hope I was clear, and thanks in advance for reading.

First things first:

Get 3D studio max 4.x, 5 or 6, then install the modding tools and get .glm importer for max.

Hi Psyk0Sith,

I want to do a similar project. I've already made the "new" model but I've no idea what to do next. Can you help me?

Here's a screenshot:

I used Milkshape. But I made the 3ds file and exported it into 3dsmax 4. So, what do I have to do now?

Get ready for some reading

Here's my website, which contains a few tutorials by myself and other modders. Read everything especially the weighting tutorial.

I also recorded 2 video captures (not really in-depth tutorials) but might also help.

1st one can be found on website.

Here's the 2nd one (not JA related but a quick example on manual weighting):

No, you cant use a biped, stick with the JA skeleton.
