To continue my Imperial Assault posts, here is the figure I photographed that had the best light.
I'll have to re-take pictures of everyone else.
Fenn Signis is a sniper hero in the game.
I did follow the Sorastro Guides, but with Reaper paints.
The hardest part of this figure was trying to paint in purple sunglasses, when they are not part of the sculpt.
Oh, that and BLACK!
The pic is a little out of focus on that one, because the camera chose to put the tip of the gun in best focus there.
I was happy with how the rebel insignia on his shoulder came out.
Enjoy, and let me know what you think.
Hi everyone. In an attempt to put some non Bones 3 items on the forums, I present some Storm Troopers.
It's been a while since I've posted my own pics.
I've been working diligently for the last 15 months trying to finish the first set of Imperial Assault miniatures.
I'd previously posted my Probe Droids and Imperial Officers.
Below are my Storm Troopers.
I did follow the Sorastro guides. If anyone doesn't know about those, it is a well produced set of You Tube videos worth checking out.
These storm troopers almost killed the desire to do the whole project.
I have been using almost exclusively Reaper paint, despite the tutorials using GW paint.
This means I sprayed the troopers with white primer, then slathered on a bunch of Reaper Black Wash.
It took 3-6 layers of paint to get them reasonably white. You can't tell too much in the pics, but there are areas which were left less white in shadowed areas like under the calf.
By the time I was happy with them, I didn't want to add any battle damage or dirty feet, but I did it anyway in the spirit of following the tutorial.
I think the gloss coat really makes these fit the full nostalgic effect. Let me know what you think.

Happy 40th birthday to Star Wars! Released this day, May 25th, in 1977.
Wish I could say I stood in line the first day and then saw it 500 times, but that wasn't me. I can remember going to see it that summer with my big sister at the local mall's movie theater. We later took my mom & dad; and my mom, not a sci-fi-fi fan, became infamous in our family for dozing off during the big battle at the end.
Somewhere around here, I saw an article... rather good one... where someone took a Reaper monk figure and made a pretty good looking Jedi figure out of it.
I've found myself thinking about Star Wars figures as of late, and I have found myself wondering: What figures does Reaper make, Bones or otherwise, that would manage a reasonable or easy conversion into Star Wars characters, or even generic space opera folks?
Ideas? Suggestions? Pictures?

So some avid fans with too much time on their hands have covered the entire Beatles' Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album as a retelling of Star Wars' A New Hope. Each track is more ingenious than the next. This surely wins the internet for 2017:
