  1. My next project is some air power for my rebels. Here are two T-47s with two coats of the base color.
  2. Next up are four Bike Scouts and a few barrels.

    Boba Fett and Scout Troopers

    Next up are Boba Fett and a squad of scout troopers. Just the thing for hunting up rebel traitors. :-) The scouts have had a wash of Nuln Oil and two dry brushes of white. Boba Fett's base colors have been blocked in.
  4. Sharkbelly

    Scout Troopers, Boba Fett

    Next up are seven Scout Troopers, Boba Fett, and some terrain.
  5. Sharkbelly

    Rebel Troopers and AT-RT

    Next up are another squad of troopers and an AT-RT.
  6. Sharkbelly

    General Veers

    Up next is another unit of stormtroopers and General Veers. Since I already shared one unit of STs, I'll just share Veers here. The face has been base coated, washed, highlighted, and I picked out the eyes. The body (after experimenting with a few colors) got a coat of grey and then the armor was washed.

    Luke and Rebel Troopers

    My next project is Luke and some Rebel Troopers.
  8. Sharkbelly

    Vader and Stormtroopers

    Vader and a squad of Stormtroopers are next up. The STs have had a wash to create some depth and a heavy dry brush. Vader was primed black and has had some light dry brushing and a little detail work.
  9. Up next for my fledgling Star Wars collection is the Emperor and his Royal Guard. For the Emperor, I decided to go with pallid skin tones with a wash of purple. We'll see how it turns out!

    Star Wars Characters Part 1

    Hey all, I've begun the process of re-basing some old WOTC Star Wars metal characters that I painted a while back. I've added a little height to each base, and now they will be more consistent with the new Star Wars Legion models. I hope you enjoy them. The first is the Cerean Jedi. This guy was my character in the Living Force campaign for many years. Next up is the Human Male Fringer. Last, for now, is a Warhammer 40K model that I painted up do be a human soldier.

    3d printed Yoda

    A friend of mine gave this to me to paint It's the first time working with a 3d printed figure. I wasn't sure if it would take paint or if I should smooth it out. This is what it looks like now still working on it
  12. 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.
  13. My oldest son loves Star Wars probably more than I do. He has 3 children - a girl and a set of twins (girl and boy). When my kids were little, every year they received an ornament in their stocking. I thought that when they grew up and flew the nest, they would have some ornaments for their own Christmas trees. I decided to do the same for my grandkids and decided to make ornaments using the Mystic Warriors from Hasslefree. I am overall happy with how they turned out. There is no photo of "Leia" in the ornament yet as I haven't put her in it!)
  14. This was my favorite project of 2017 due to how much I pushed my abilities in creating it. It was my first major conversion of this sort, first time doing texture, first major use of OSL, and first Sci Fi base built fully from scratch. So lots of firsts with this one. Those of you who followed my WIP thread know what I went through with this one; the OSL dilemma, redoing the base, and sculpting new hands at the last minute. In all I am proud that I stepped out of my comfort zone and I cannot give enough thanks to those who posted in the WIP thread, your encouragement gave me the push that I needed. So this conversion is the result of critique I received at ReaperCon 2016 regarding my Open entry, it was to up the difficulty of my conversions. When I got home I went through the Reaper web store and found minis that I call "blank slates", ones that I felt would be a good base for multiple conversions. I found a few that sparked an idea but the one that I got stuck on was Anirion and how he would make the perfect Jedi. So he was the project I choose for my ReaperCon 2017 Open entry but I made myself focus on having fun with it and not worrying about it being perfect. When I was finished, I was extremely happy with the results but I knew that there were somethings that could be better. Knowing that, I was extremely surprised to find that I got a gold medal in Open and blown away when it was announced that I got the Open Silver Sophie. So again thank you to everyone who gave me feedback in the WIP thread. WIP thread: Wizard of a Different Sort: Anirion Conversion Conversion breakdown: -Reshaped hood and sleeves -Smoothed out cloak to remove border -Removed staff and bag? -Repositioned arms -Added light saber out of styrene and metal piece -Added some strands of hair -Resculpted hands

    Original Trilogy

    Our next Kickstarter T-Shirt is ORIGINAL TRILOGY: Est. 1977. True Jedis know true quality. It is elegant apparel for a more civilized age. Wear. Or wear not. There is no try on. You can't strike a true original down, for it will become more powerful than you can possibly imagine. The Force of original fashion will be with you. Always. Some may call you a stuck-up, half-witted, scruffy-looking nerf-herder, but when it comes to a true original, they say, "I love it." We know. When this shirt you wear, the last word in fashion you will be. Fashion Force will run strong in you with this. Pass on what you have learned. Frills. Hmph. Excess. A Jedi craves not these things. This shirt may not look like much to some, but it's got it where it counts, kid. I'm in for one right now, but may add another, because this one is... just right...
  17. Coming off of the Last Jedi thread, how would people rank the Star Wars movies? Mine: ESB (Fav) ANH R1 TFA ROTJ ROTS TLJ AOTC TPM
  18. Before posting I searched this section to see if there was already a discussion going on but didn't find anything. I could be wrong though. I think it also goes without saying this post and any subsequent posts will include spoilers. I finally got around to seeing The Last Jedi, I was waiting for the crowds to die down. So I ended up in a noon showing with only five other people (mostly older folks who I can only assume also waited for the crowds to die down). Right off the bat I want to say I'm not impressed with the new film. Rather than go on a rant about what I liked and hated though I'd prefer to start a discussion of the new film. What did you like? What did you hate? Were you happy with the final product?
  19. 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. C&C Welcome.
  20. 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.

    Darth Sana - an ub3r Showoff

    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!
  22. 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. Fascinating pictures here: https://petapixel.com/2013/05/12/photo-series-visits-abandoned-star-wars-film-sets-in-the-deserts-of-north-africa/
  23. 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.
  24. To break up your F5's for the Bones IV Kickstarter... Allow me to present another installment of my Imperial Assault work. I have been following the suggestions from the Sorastro Youtube Guides, but with Reaper Paints. Gideon Argus is a field general. It took a few tries to get a skin tone I was happy with, but I am pleased now. Not too sold on the dust effect on the jacket, but it is what it is. C&C welcome.
  25. http://massivevoodoo.blogspot.com/2017/07/mv-challenge-2017.html?m=1 Peace and blessings, brothers and sisters. The crew at Massive Voodoo have let loose their call for their 2017 Challenge. The crew at Massive Voodoo set out challenges to their viewers in order to push our abilities past our comfort zone. This year they have two (2) Challenges for us! 1. Create a base using water effects. 2. Paint a Disney Infinity character. There are limitations in this challenge - like on the basing Challenge: the goal is to create a base with a water effect, not to focus on a figure. They said we can use a small animal to accent the base, and Reaper has some awesome Familiars we can use. Also, Infinity Challenge is one figure, not multiple, which allows us to focus doing our best on one figure. Full details can be found by clicking on the link. I heard that little voice too: "I cannot win this! Why should I even try?" Well shut the front door little-voice-in-my-head! I know I have much to learn and improve in my own Art, which is why this is a Challenge. We cannot lose: we win just by pushing past our comfort zone and learning more about our beloved hobby. :D I said it before and I will keep repeating it: I believe in you. I see the awesome work you all do, and you believe in me too. That love helps me believe in myself and makes me want to work harder to push past my own limits. Plus we get to paint a character from the Disney franchise - which includes Marvel and Star Wars! I didn't even consider painting these as well as playing with them! ( Don't judge too harshly. Elsa kicks butt.) For a full list of characters available, check 'em out here: http://www.portalcharacters.com/disney-infinity/figures.asp You can find them individually and inexpensively on eBay. Now, if you will excuse me: I have some Reaper Familiars to peruse. :D May your efforts be rewarded and blessed!
