About the Project

I am aiming to get the Rebel Troopers from my Core set completed this weekend. I have already completed 2 AT-RT's, Luke Skywalker and two Imperial Speeder Bikes. These are the last 14 miniatures I need to complete in order to be ready for a local SWL tournament in Durham.

Clone Army So FarClone Army So Far

I cannot believe I haven’t posted these pics.

I completed my Clones about a month ago. I painted them using Sorastro’s guide (for the most part) although I have painted mine for an early Geonosis campaign. So Green Rank stripe for Sergeants and Blue for Lieutenants. I have Clone Upgrades arriving any day so either a Captain (Red) or Commander (Yellow) to add.

Imperial Royal GuardImperial Royal Guard

First up we have a squad of Imperial Royal Guard from the Rebellion Era. I painted these with predominantly Contrast Flesh Tearer, although the Helmets, gloves and boots were Mephiston Red base and then highlighted up with Evil Sunz Scarlett. Really simple Unit and great fun to paint.

So I have finally managed to get a good amount of Clone Wars painting in. The Clone Troopers are pretty much done too, so 5 Squads inbound as soon as I can get them finished. If anybody is interested in how I painted them, then it’s not too far off Sorastro’s painting guide. Super happy with these and now looking forward to getting some gaming after the Lockdown ends.

Stormtroopers Painting started and...... I love these premium Bases!!!!

Started work on the Stormtroopers. I painted the bases separately to the troopers. Steps so far;

BASES

Black Undercoat

Drybrush bases with mix of Macragge blue and Abaddon Black in a 40/60 mix

Adding in more Macragge blue I drybrush again but concentrating towards the front to give the impression of light hitting the floor in front of the trooper.

Final drybrush adds in Ivory in a 50/50 mix to the base colour concentrating on a smaller area towards the front to add again more light in front of the trooper.

Painted all details I wanted Metal with a 50/50 mix of Vallejo German Grey and Leadbelcher

Wash the whole base with Nuln Oil.

Edge highlight the black parts of the base with light grey concentrating on the edges closest to the front of the base. Finish off with a smaller highlight of white.

 

Stormtroopers Painting started and...... I love these premium Bases!!!!

STORMTROOPERS

Sprayed the models with Grey Seer. Created a zenith highlight by spraying the model from above with short sharp sprays of Tamiya White primer.

Bodysuit, Holsters, Backpack and black details painted with Black Templar Contrast.

Shaded selectively in the recesses and areas I wanted to have more contrast and appear darker with Apothecary White Contrast. I was selective with this as I had originally painted some Clone Troopers with Grey Seer followed by Apothecary White and it was far too grey so a different approach was taken with the Stormtroopers which I will replicate for any further Clones 😀

Guns have been painted with a 50/50 mix of Leadbelcher and Vallejo German Grey then Nuln Oil washed.

 

That’s as far as I have gotten at the moment. More updates hopefully this weekend as I push to complete the Rebellion Era models before I start to finish the Clone Wars models.

Rebel Troopers finally finished!

Rebel Alliance ArmyRebel Alliance Army

So I finally managed to finish the Rebel troops for my Star Wars Legion Rebel Army. Been following most of Sorastros painting guides with a few exceptions. The second Squad has a different camo scheme taken from the USAriadna minis painted by Angel Giraldez. Basing needs finished off once I get a pack of tufts to finish them off with but I am calling these done for the moment 😀

Rebel Troopers finally finished!

Imperial Transport SpeederImperial Transport Speeder

Okay, so it’s been a while since I posted, alas I was too busy the weekend that the Star Wars Hobby project was going on to do too much. I have since finished the Rebel Troopers (pics incoming) and the above Transport Speeder.

I painted it using the cracking painting tutorial from Sorastro as a test piece before I paint an AT ST.

 

I added a lot more weathering to the model using mig pigments mixed with a little agrax earthshade as well as rust effects with Contrast Gryphhound Orange mixed 4:1 with contrast Medium

Core Sets Current Progress

My progress so far on the Two Core sets for Star Wars Legion. I was initially very reluctant to buy into the Star Wars Legion game as I was unsure about the mechanics for the game. When FFG released he Clone Wars starter though I had to get involved, even if I used an alternative rule set. After playing through the starter game however, I realised that the game system is actually incredibly nuanced, with a depth I had not anticipated.

So that led to my buying the Rebellion Era Core Set and some extra models in order to take part in a local doubles tournament in Durham. Roll on January and the Rebel Alliance taking down the “Evil” Empire.

I am so very impressed with the quality of the miniatures in both sets. The hard plastic models for the Separatists were a dream to put together and the Plastic/Resin models for the rest are so clean. I am a longtime fan of Mantic games and Warmachine, however the material they use must be broadly similar to that of FFG’s SWL models. FFG have a far superior quality to both those aforementioned companies though. Either because of the larger scale, better quality control or better processes, FFG have done an outstanding job on the models.

I am aiming to complete at least the 14 Rebel troopers I have remaining for the Core Rebellion Era set this weekend however, if this doesn’t happen I will of course keep the project up to date as I add more units and eventually scenery to supplement my SWL collection.
