  1. It's not that I haven't been painting, I just haven't been posting. I've actually completed some 40% of the Imperial Assault line since I started (focusing on what the Imperial player owns first). Ok, not much to say here. Just the basics, really: Rainy Grey, Ghost White, and Pure White. Pure Black where needed. The shields were done with the silver metallic triads (one triad per group). The batons were a silver metallic triad and the gun metal metallics. Not a lot of variety, but enough to spot the difference on the table. I've thought about going back after the visor lenses with some Adamantium Black, but somehow that sounds like too much work and I'm eager to be done with the troopers. So many troopers. Sooo much white. I'm planning on continuing the hashes on all the bases--With a few exceptions, you really don't see many situations where you'll have anything more than the regular unit and the elite. So paint one set of white marks on the regular and a set of red marks on the elites! Unique characters get a solid base without a mark. @Cyradis, I know the pictures aren't great, but I used the masking tape for the marks on the bases. I'd say it worked reasonably well, and came up easily even after making sure I had decent adhesion. I reused the same few pieces for each base, so there's some durability there. I would note, however, that the tape will work better if you have a large-ish and flat-ish area in which to work. The tape went down easily, pulled up easily, and provided a reasonable edge. Yes, I could clean it up a little, but at 3' away the little smudges aren't very visible. My next batch of minis will have something a little more suitable for testing the tape. I've got a couple Dewbacks that will need more than just the standard dull green.
