So as some of you may know I'm making a diorama! This will be slow going for a while as I get the materials and then it should be full steam ahead. I've started by procuring another copy of the "telephone box" since I don't really like the first one I did a few years ago. It's not awful but not up to my standard for a Christmas present.
Ending in four days - Redshirts: Adventures in Absurdity
Sometimes the greatest adventure in space is simply surviving the orders of your captain. Redshirts brings laughs to your gaming table
Sounds like fun - I am in for $10 - with no real intent of ever running the beastie.
A short adventure series, covering levels 1 - 3.
Mission 1: The Terrible Tacos: When Captain Ginny wakes up after a weekend bender with an intense craving for tacos, she decides to send her newly arrived recruits on their first mission. Unfortunately for the recruits, the local Taco Galaxy is under deadly new management. Mission 2: The Cheaper Cleaner: Stuck in a surveillance mission around a dying star, first officer Laisse Faire decides to save a few credits and send the PCs to pick up his dry cleaning instead of paying for delivery. He's sure the quarantine around the planet won't be a problem. Mission 3: The Pirate Bonanza: When several important pieces of the ship's engine go missing, the PCs are sent shopping at the local space pirate flea market with a budget of $0 and the Captain expecting change back. Can the PCs get the ship back in working order or will they end up swabbing the decks of a pirate ship for the rest of their days?
You are the away team for an incompetent captain, on a less than stellar starship.
Reminds me more of the old SF classic(?) Quark than Star Trek...
The Auld Grump
Continuing on with my Imperial Assault posts.
I was really pleased with these Trandoshan. The method from Sorastro really worked well for the skin of these reptilians.
All of the skin was painted the same. Then, all 4 had different washes with either a little more blue, green, brown, or sepia than the other.
It really shows in the blue and sepia Trandoshan. I will try it out on some of the metal and Bones Reaper Lizardmen I have.
I didn't want to paint one of these as Bossk, since Fantasy Flight Games released a Bossk expansion figure.
So, I gave one of them a "salvaged" Rebel Fighter Pilot Flight Suit. I was least pleased with the colors of it. It comes out a little to stark in my mind.
I also tried to give one a desert camo, and another a snow camo or urban camo. I was most pleased with the outcome of the blue one, so I am giving the detail shots of him.
Continuing on with my Imperial Assault posts, here is Chewbacca.
Again, I have been following Sorastro's guides.
This figure was new for me in the use of multiple layers of dark wash over and over. It was about 5 layers.
The pictures show this sort of granular/peculiar highlight. I checked on the model, and it is areas that picked up drybrushing that never toned down well with wash.
It's all good. I painted Chewie very quickly.
She stared at her adversary with cool and calm calculation, the Jedi was nervous... she saw the fear in his eyes, yes... GOOOOOOD.... fear would cause him to make mistakes.. she'd cut him down with her force-imbued katana and notch another Jedi scum on her belt...
She snarled at him, "Come and die, you fight the Sith Mistress!"
Manufacturer: White Wolf Miniatures
3 parts: Head, body, Sword.
Scale: 70mm high
Sculptor: Juan Puerta
This was a labor of love and fun for me, I decided as soon as I saw this beautiful bust that I was going to paint her up as 'evil' and the paint scheme that called to me was to paint her up to look like Darth Maul, I added the horns with copper wire and then sculpted them on with ProCreate.
Towards the end of the project, I was trying to decide how to display her and it came to me that I wanted to make her part of a story, give her a bit more of the Star Wars tie-in with a completely scratch-built Tie Fighter. The title placards on the sides were designed by my good friend @Thrym and I printed them off on cardstock and glued them onto the plasticard sides of the tie fighter.
The scabbard is my attempt at a sort of force rune, it is Kanji which translates into "Sith Mistress."

Without further ado, I present (Darth) Sana from White Wolf Miniatures!
