I got priority supply pack, and I’ve been painting up the mines.

I gave them paint of AP Uniform Grey

The I mixed VJ German Grey, and VJ Gunmetal grey, 1 to Then I drybrushed them with AP Plate Mail silver. The buttons are painted, AP pure red, and smal screens and cables are painted AP viking blue.

Then I washed the entire model in GW Nuln Oil

Then the buttons, cables and screens were high lighted with the same colors.

And apparently I’m boring the cats…😅

The magic of drybrush and wash

Tonight I finished operative Luke. I started with a drybrush and then some different washes.

The suit and his boots was drybrushed with AP Uniform Grey.

The light saber got a drybrush of AP matt white, very lightly so you still can see the very aggressive green.

The suit, belt,sword handle, boots and gloves was washed with GW Nuln Oil

His hair And skin was was washed with Gw Seraphim Sepia

I dident use any washes on the light saber, because it need to be bright and green.

And that’s what I did. I managed to start on the base, but will finish it tomorrow, with turfs and such.

The brown base material I’m using is from AP, and is called brown battleground.

And ofcourse I had company while painting, my chunky boy chewie😀

But all in all I’m very pleased with the result. Its just amazing what a drybrush/highlight and wash can do to a model.

And the support team is ready to dry after a little wash. The base was painted AP skeleton bone. Really happy with the paint job, fits well rouge one/scarif theme. I was a little afraid the winter gear wouldent fit.

I bought myself some tauntaun riders. It was time to get some hard hitting units for my rebels.

I’ve always been hesitant to add them to my scarif force. They looked like,  they only belonged on snow/ice planets. Now after i got some paint on them, they will fit in just fine, provide even more close fire and combat option for me.

They are where much easier to paint than I thought .

I primed them with ap Uniform Grey

Leather, ap Leather Brown , ap Strong Tone

Face, ap babarien flesh, washed with ap Strong Tone, highlighted 1 to 1 ap mat white and ap babarien flesh

The soldiers where painted the same way as my rebel troopers https://www.beastsofwar.com/project-entry/1418502/#comments

The sleeping bags, vj green Grey, ap Strong tone

The whole tauntaun was washed in ap Strong Tone.

I was thinking about drybrushing the hair after the wash, but I likes the result so much, I just think I will keep it🙂

As my sweet mother always said, ‘Son, if one hostage is good, two are better. And three, well, that’s good business.’

I forgot, I got this beautiful model from skull forge of Hondo, one of my favourite characters from the Clone Wars series. He is a true pirate and I’m gonna use him as rebel officer, or even stand in from Han Solo, Leia or Lando. Might even make up some rules 😅

Let’s see if can remeber the colours i used 😅 I used AP Dragon Red for his coat, washed it with a GW seraphim wash, and then highlighted with a AP Lava Orange.

The metal on his coat, helmet and pistol painted VJ German Field Grey, drybrushed AP Plate Mail Metal on, washed with a GW Nuln Oil

His skin is AP Leather Brown, his shirt AP Uniform Grey, washed with GW Arthrax Earthshade

Its all painted!

I finally have a fully painted army! I onle done this ones before (my bolt action army).

So I snapped some fast pics of them all

In this pic are there the following units :

Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Sabine Wren, Leia Oregano, Jyn Erzo, Chewie, 2 units of Wookies, 2 unist of Fleet troops, 6 units of Rebel Troopers, 3 AT-RT’s, 1 unit of pathfinders, 1 unit of rebel commandos, a group of specialists, 1 airspeed, objectives and barricades.

 

 

And wow it feels good! But I have a felling more rebels are incoming, Christmas time is around the corner, or as we say in Danish Jul ! Time for herring, snaps and many other wonderful jule traditioner.

And thanks for all the likes, and comments you guys have been writing sins i started this blog. Its probably more a star wars legion experience blog, than just painting.

Happy Holidays everyone 🙂

So I been painting Sabine Wren, and im not interly happy with the result, i might return to her later. The biggest problem I had was all the diffrent pattern she has on her armor. I tried to replicate it as good as i could, but i was not happy with the result. I ended up with a simple armor, but I might return to her later.

AP Uniform Grey Primer

Armor: AP Alien Purple, AP Matt White, AP Lava Orange, AP Uniform Grey, GW Nuln Oil, AP Matt Black

Uniform: VJ German Grey, AP Uniform Grey, AP Leather Brown, AP Skeleton Bone, GW Arthrax Eathshade

After a lot of failed attempt to free hand the rebel alliance logo, on her armor, i started painting my AT-RT, i used the same technic as with my other walkers. So that’s it…

I finished all of my rebel models, terrain and objectives I have.
