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.

      Darth Sana
      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
      Casting: Sago
      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."
      WIP can be found here: 
      Without further ado, I present (Darth) Sana from White Wolf Miniatures!

      Thanks for looking (and following along), C&C are welcomed and greatly appreciated!

      Photographer Rä di Martino traveled around the Tunisian desert in September 2010 locating and photographing the decaying old sets for the original Star Wars films, which she learned had never been torn down.

      Inspirobot is a bot for inspirational quotes. It gets a background, and throws words together with somewhat decent grammar (usually). Occasionally it will hit a legitimately good combo. Often they don't make sense. Sometimes the results are downright creepy (and some are inappropriate). 
      ^^ The link. 
      Examples! I chose tame ones as to not scare you off. 

      What craziness are you getting? Worst I had was the 'bot telling me to get preggo, and that certain erm, acts, could cause zombies. 
      Join me in laughing at this!

      Update: Many thanks to the mods for their patience with this thread. Future marathon-paint show offs will be handled differently. The 30 days are now done, and I managed to finish at least 5 figures for all of them.
      After 3 kickstarters I have a HUGE backlog of unpainted Bones minis, so I've set myself a goal of doing 5 minis a day, speed paint, table top standard. Here are the minis for my first three days...
      Day One:

      Day Two:

      Day Three:

      Days 4 and 5 
      Days 6 and 7
      Days 8, 9, & 10
      Days 11 & 12
      Days 13, 14, & 15
      Days 16-20
      Days 21-25
      Days 26, 27, & 28
      Days 29 & 30
      Any marathon show-offs in the future should be done as either as a group post when the marathon is done, or with a seperate show-off thread for each week. I did not realize when I started this thread that editing the main post made more work for the mods.
      I apologize again for causing the mods extra work.
      Thank you to everyone who encouraged me through this insanity.
