The Cast: The Story: After the capture of Han Solo by the Bounty Hunter Boba Fett, Princess Leia Organa selects a group of operatives to accompany her on a special mission back to Hoth in order to recover files and equipment that will be necessary to implement Solo's rescue. The rebels expected the remains of the base to be empty, but Darth Vader's prescience led him to leave a small garrison force on the remote ice planet. Dengar, and his cadre of assassin droids, were too late to Bespin to participate in Solo's capture and the attempted capture of Luke Skywalker, but he continued trailing the Millenium Falcon when it left Cloud City. Unfortunately for Dengar, the rebel sniper Loku Kanoloa trailed the rest of the band and now has the bounty hunter in his sights. The rebels managed to acquire their assets but were discovered on their way out of the base. General Sorin, eager to not fail Darth Vader, has deployed all his best assets in an effort to capture the rebels before they can return to their transport and escape. All the activity in the area of the base has alerted a small band of wampas that were living in the ruins, and they are investigating. Again, I need to redo some of the Scum & Villainy bases. I think I changed ring-colors and the darker green just doesn't show well. Dengar's armor is the wrong color. I was originally going to do more of a feldbruan, but I got caught mentally on feldgrau. I also need to go over the dots on the HK's bases. I was originally going to mark the bases to distinguish which tokens to use, but I came up with a better way (as many IA gamers/painters did) of just hitting the base with a hash mark in the appropriate color. That makes it much easier to distinguish which models go together and which ones are which. Loku is shown in the printed materials as being a red Mon Calamari wearing green. But, after Rogue One introduced to Admiral Raddus and his crew, I knew I didn't want to paint him red. It makes no (visual) sense for a sniper on an ice world to be wearing so much brown and green, so I went rogue and painted him blue with more lighter colored gear. I thought about painting his skin white, but... so... much... white... I just couldn't do it (and I still have 11 or so characters who will be wearing white)! I think I should have started with a little bit lighter shade, but I did what I did and I'm not redoing it or Dengar's armor. It might not be accurate, but tough noogies.
