IG-88, Imperial Assault, Fantasy Flight Games

5 posts in this topic

Here is another of my Imperial Assault figures.
IG-88.  I followed the Sorastro guide, which involved drybrushing, washes, drybrushing, etc.  4 or 5 cycles.

Then painting on some forced highlights, then a blue wash on one side and a red one on the other.

This was fast, and a little sloppy.  But fast.

C&C Welcome.

Great piece! I especially love the goldish-copperish tint that you have added to the notorious self-aware assasin droid we all love! 

 

Not to be nit-picky but the gun could have been slightly darker perhaps? Still awesome paint job..

 

Good hunting sir!

Thank you.

 

@VolksFest Thank You for the comments.  I agree the gun could be darker.  This model was different from others in that the whole base coat was metallic, then washes, then drybrushing to pick up raised edges.  That meant tha gun was darkened with Nuln Oil (blackish wash) to make the gun look different than the droid.  I could have done some more darkening to the gun with extra washes after dry brushing.  It's a little lighter in the pictures than in hand, and I was OK with it, and was really not in love painting it, and just wanted to move on.

      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.
      C&C Welcome.
