Wad'e Tay'haai by ragelion Wad'e Tay'haai by ragelion
Wad'e Tay'haai. A commission piece for Wade Scrogham.
This is his OFFICIAL character that was created by Karen Traviss (Star Wars author) in his honor.
In Republic Commando: True Colors, Wad'e Tay'haai was mentioned only in passing.
This September, Tay'haai makes his actual debut in Order 66: A Republic Commando novel.
He is put in charge by Jango to train the Covert Ops troops.
Wookiepedia entry: [link]

It's a very high honor indeed to be a part of the Star Wars lore. I put a "helmet' to this character for Wade and Karen.

I always held this particular Mando in high respects as a Star Wars character.

Weird... Years ago, I got a very definite "no" from Karen when I asked if Mandalorians might have a fondness for flutes.

"It's a very high honor indeed to be a part of the Star Wars lore."

A VERY high honor!! :clap::clap: (...Where's that blasted "standing ovation smiley" when I need it?! ) :winner: And I can't imagine anyone doing the character more justice--this looks just awesome: all the fantastic detailing on the armor (the weathering and wear, the scorch marks and scuffs)--love the puddles around their feet, too--a great touch to put them into the rainy environment! This also has a wonderful, sort of "candid shot" feel to it, as though they just finished maneuvers and are coming in out of the weather--perfect! How cool for you to have a hand in this character--major congrats! :clap:

Wow, that's looking sweeeeet! :drool: Love the choice of colors, the detail, the weathering, the poses and the wet Kaminoan background, hehe! :D Wad'e and the ARC behind looks especially awesome, spot-on job! :horns:

Wade Scrogham sure found the perfect artist to commission this piece from, hehe! It's a sign for your growing reputation, bro, and that's great, no? :D :clap: Now we only need Kal Skirata, Walon Vau, Rav Bralor and Mij Gilamar to be commissioned from somebody "official". ;P

Great job, keep up the splendid work! ;)
