A while back there was interest in my rendition of the legendary villain Darth Vader. All too easy. I'm not trying to go overboard with these charming Grenadier minis in terms of time commitment. Instead, I'm aiming for a clean tabletop look to keep them fast and fun between more involved projects. That said, it is Darth Vader and he was begging for some OSL with his pose. Who am I to disappoint the Dark Lord of the Sith? I speed-painted the OSL and, while it isn't perfect, it was great practice and helped boost my confidence with the technique. of the several pics I took this one really makes that lightsaber shine, so I went with the awkward side shot to highlight the effect. Other than the OSL the challenge was yet more black to paint. I tried to use differences in highlighting to emphasize the different textures for more visual appeal. While typically not too tough to do, the very small size of this miniature relative to what I normally work with made it a challenge. There is at least one other sculpt of Vader from the line, and I actually have another of these, so expect to see more of him. Yoda on deck, he is!
The Sith Revolt He walked calmly into the dark chamber, the Emperor's Throne Room and saw his master, Lord Vader, standing before the throne deep in thought as he stared out at the star that his space station had just made into a super nova. Darth Cerrak quietly pulled the light saber from his belt and unleashed a powerful blast of the force at his master! Darth Vader was ready for the blast and had been expecting his apprentice to one day try to destroy him, he wouldn't be a Sith if that wasn't part of his personality and how Vader trained him. He easily deflected the blast with one of his own. Laughing through his mask, Darth Vader pulled forth his red light saber and proceeded to try to force-choke the young upstart... ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- This is my entry into the Spaceship Superstar Contest! Figures: Zargun, Assassin from Guild of Harmony with Karick-Dar's right hand and Darth Vader from West End Games Star Wars Miniatures Materials: Metal Diorama Materials: Poster board Emperor's Throne: Scratch built using Super Sculpey Firm and Greenstuff. WIP Thread can be found here. Thank you to everyone in the WIP thread for your advice, comments, compliments and critiques. I couldn't have gotten it done without you all! C&C are welcomed and appreciated. EDIT: I fixed the diorama to lessen the open spaces after comments below. I also removed from the removable bases and placed directly into the scene. I think it works better and looks cleaner now, but will still appreciate any C&C that you fine artists have for me. Thanks!
Battle of the Sith Diorama Project Figures: Zargun, Assassin from Guild of Harmony with Karick-Dar's right hand and Darth Vader from West End Games Star Wars Miniatures Since this is a Sci-fi entry and I'm going to go pretty in-depth with my work here, I decided that it needs its own WIP thread. First off is the theme for my little diorama, it is going to be Darth Vader vs his upstart apprentice (Darth Malice). Here are the primed figures. I found a window to the Emperor's Throne Room on the Deathstar and resized it to be the right size for this scale. After cutting out the picture's windows over plasticard, I then used a pen and traced in the areas which I'll need to cut out with a sharp hobby knife. This is where I'm at right now as I'm writing this. The plan is going to be to get the windows cut out, then find some thicker clear plastic to put behind the plasticard as well as a small picture of some Empire ships and stars. I will also construct the throne itself to go before the window such as this: As I go through, I'd appreciate comments and critiques to try to get it looking really good for the competition here. Thanks!
