Here was my next batch of completed figures for Imperial Assault.

I watched Sorastro's Tutorial on You Tube, and tried to follow his steps.
However, it is all with Reaper paints.

Also, when I went back and watched episode IV, the officer uniforms seemed a sort of gray-green to me, so that's what I went for.

I made the rank bars different for each.  The highest rank is the red-based "Elite" deployment card.  
He's the one with gloves on and gray hair.

You can see the eyes are a little wonky!  Sort of too big.  The sculpts had very tiny eyes, shallow, and the detail was obscured a little from my primer.  

During the painting of all this Imperial Assault stuff, I just have to keep telling myself "Tabletop!" so I don't get too bogged down with trying to get closer and closer to perfect.

 

The final pic is the middling officer.

I gave him a 5 o'clock shadow.  That's a first for me, and I think it came out OK.

I take it the boots have a high gloss sealant?

 

Because it's a smart touch.

 

Yup!

Of the Liquitex Brush on variety, after sealing.

For sealing Tabletop minis I expect to be heavily used, I do 1 coat of Gloss Coat by Testors, then 2 coats of Dullcote.  I find it very durable.

      This one is next in line.  He needs a better base.  
       




       
      This is a standard Reaper 1 inch base.  And a sheet of embossed styrene cobblestone, for model railroading.  I superglued it on, trimmed around it with an X-Acto, then sanded it down to 800 grit.  Any gap left is going to get the Brush On Sealer treatment to deal with the seam.  After this I just superglued the Mocking Beast on.  No pin.

      Here is my BONES version of the Eye Beast.
      This is my project going model-by-model down the Bones I Kickstarter rewards images through all my models, and logging them as WIP.
      And bringing along any pewter versions I have for the ride.

      These guys are very rewarding and great practice for eyes.
      I coated the eyes and mouth with brush on gloss varnish to give it that live, wet, salivating look.
      Enjoy.
      C/C Welcome.

      I started this to be the BBEG for Dragon's Demand.
      I really enjoyed painting it.  This is my first full dragon miniature painted.
      I spent a lot of time on it, and I'm pleased with the outcome.
      I hope you like it.  This was my first time using Birch seed pod debris as leaves, and I think they look good.
       
      Here is the link to the WIP:

      Since the Eye Beasts are making good progress, getting the next model ready.  A suitable Player Character model.  Turanil, Male Elf Paladin.
       


       
      The plan is white and red.  I’m hoping the peacock comes across as a Phoenix.
