They're afraid that someone might do a better paintjob on the minis...

Gman likely has The right of it. If too many pewter minis hit the market, the chance of Hello Kitty storm troopers showing up on google image search and hurting the brand increases dramatically.

 

I need a Storm Trooper mini now. For reasons. ::P:

Naw, I'll bet anything that Reaper would cheerfully lease the rights and pump out quality Star Wars miniatures... if they had a few million lying around to get Disney's attention as far as licensing rights go.

Long ago, a little company called West End Games could manage a little RPG license, and even produce miniatures.

Nowadays... ouch. I'd love to see Fantasy Flight produce minis for their new RPG, but I'm not holding my breath. And while I've enjoyed Imperial Assault, I dunno that I'd want to buy endless expansions, just to get the miniatures.

      Once I started painting Star Wars minis it was only a matter of time before I tackled one of the most iconic characters. 

      Again I'd love to hear what you all think.

      It has been a dark time for the Galactic Empire.
      Strong meta for the other factions have lead to few victories,
      and the faith of many Imperial commanders had been tested.
      But now, when all seemed lost, and new RRG has emerged. 
      Unit costs have decreased.
      Changes have breathed new life into nearly abandoned Imperial troops. 
      And leading the way, mighty Lord Vader's Sith training has made him even more powerful and devastating. 
      Now is the time, for the Empire to strike back!!
       
      So, a new year, and a new Star Wars Legion painting WIP.
      Last year started strong but then I almost completely stopped painting for quite a while. Instead I focused on getting a bunch of units assembled, as I was playing fairly regularly. My back going to crap probably had some impact on my painting too, all those meds aren't helping with my focus or energy levels.
      Regardless, I've finally felt like painting again the last week or so.  So I'm going to go with it and hope to settle in to a schedule where I'm getting a few hours of painting in a week.
      My goals for this year are to get back to painting Empire forces, but also to finish up painting my CIS army.
      For the CIS I still have to paint two more units of B1s, and base them and the 2 units I've just finished up in the old WIP.
      Then there are 3 units of STAPs, 3 units of Droidekas. 3 Spider Droids.  3 boxes of Magnaguards.  3 boxes of Bx commandos.  A bunch of commanders and specialists.  Oh, and 2 snail tanks, and two AATs.......so a bit...also 1 more unit of B2s if they ever come in.
      But, as soon as I get through the 2 units of B1s (they take up too much room on my desk to work on anything else at the same time) I'll start moving in some Imperial units to mix it up.  And get back to painting white......

      My latest starwars miniature. A very challenging paint job but a great opportunity to practice my freehand skills. 
      Very rewarding project, even if her helmet gave me fits. 
       
      I'd love to hear what you all think.

      I bought this little model at a local game store that had it in the clearance bin.  I thought it looked cool, I love Star Wars, so why not buy it?  However, a year ago, I wasn't at the level to paint it.  I primed it.  Based it.  And then let it sit for a loooooong time on the shelf without touching it.  
       
      Today was the day.
       
       

       
      BATTLE REPORT!
       
      This was a great model for me to test layers on.  Over the last 4 models I've painted, I've really picked up a new rhythm and life for painting, which feels so good to get some wind back in my sails.  I still have to finish the desert-ish base for Greedo, but I think his paint job looks solid.
       
      Wins:
      * Keeping my palette of colors out and planned helped so much!  I've picked my layering colors, laid them out in the wet palette and am saving time.  
      *  Mixing colors is also much easier by keeping similar tones.  In his vest, and arm/pant panels, I used leather as the base.  In his pants and jacket, I used a stormy gray to highlight up.  
      *  Alien Flesh!!!  I've been sitting on this color, I don't know how long.  I was thinking, "Gosh, if only I had a light green that would work with an alie...OH MY GOD!
      *  Learning my own recipe of water-to-paint ratios to allow for washes feels great!  Gives my painting more flexibility.
      *  Eyes.  When they are that big, it makes it pretty easy to do them.  I need to work on the reflections still, but I am happy with them.  Using Indigo Blue and up to Rich Indigo then mixing in white up to white.  Works.
       
      Misses:
      *  Got sloppy twice and ended up swiping leather color over my pants and jacket 2 times.  Thankfully I could catch and fix, but it was a few 'choice words' I may have said when I did it.  
      *  Used a blue tack for the handle I was using and unfortunately, it didn't stick as well to my homemade metal base.  It nearly fell into the paint palette.  He nearly ended up as messy as my shorts.  I nearly crapped myself.  Also followed by more choice words.
      *  I tried using brown liner around the jacket and separation in the pockets on the vest, but it just didn't work like I had hoped.  I need to learn how to darken in a similar color without going too dark and stark of a change.  
       
      Would love to hear your feedback.  Let me know what you think can be improved or worked on.  I appreciate any and all comments.
       
      Here's my process photos and my inspiration image.
