Stormtroopers, Imperial Assault, Fantasy Flight Games

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone.  In an attempt to put some non Bones 3 items on the forums, I present some Storm Troopers.

It's been a while since I've posted my own pics.
I've been working diligently for the last 15 months trying to finish the first set of Imperial Assault miniatures.

I'd previously posted my Probe Droids and Imperial Officers.


Below are my Storm Troopers.

I did follow the Sorastro guides.  If anyone doesn't know about those, it is a well produced set of You Tube videos worth checking out.




These storm troopers almost killed the desire to do the whole project.
I have been using almost exclusively Reaper paint, despite the tutorials using GW paint.

This means I sprayed the troopers with white primer, then slathered on a bunch of Reaper Black Wash.

It took 3-6 layers of paint to get them reasonably white.  You can't tell too much in the pics, but there are areas which were left less white in shadowed areas like under the calf.

By the time I was happy with them, I didn't want to add any battle damage or dirty feet, but I did it anyway in the spirit of following the tutorial.

I think the gloss coat really makes these fit the full nostalgic effect.  Let me know what you think.

Great job on all..


I do highly recommend Sorastro tutorials too. I think they are the best (and free) tutorials on the net right now. 


'GW vs other brands' is an issue for me too since I have exclusively Vallejo. He posts a conversion chart for his Patreon patrons (even for '$1 a piece' ones) and it does help.


Furthermore I quit using Vallejo washes once I used citadel washes (or shades as they are called). I had a chronic frosting problem with Vallejo and none whatsoever with Citadel. Just my 2 cents.

      These were the third installment of my Bones 1 WIPs.
      Which is metal?  Which is BONES?
      You'll have to check out the WIP to decide!
      Hope you enjoy, and I hope it helps people see that there isn't always a loss of detail between BONES and Pewter.
      C&C Welcome.

      Here is my Callie.
      I painted her as a second WIP for my BONES 1 attempts.
      I really like the sculpt.  I painted her as a half-orc or orc.  She has some freckles, nice green gems, and some ivy freehand on the cloak.
      Here is a link to the WIP.
      C&C Welcome.

      So my son and his friends have asked me if I would run them a "Star Wars D&D game".
      They were thinking that I would use 5e, but given that there are Star Wars specific RPGs out there, it seems picking one of those up would be a better idea.
      Went to the local FLGS thinking I would just pick up whatever the latest version is, only to find out that there are apparently several different versions now available? I got seriously confused as to which was which (the FLGS shrink wraps their books) and just left with a couple of minis.
      So what are the various versions? And in your opinion, what are the pros and cons of each version?

      Last new post for the day.
      Here is another BONES Tick.  I have 2 more and a queen.
      This is the 4th painted one, and I painted it while I painted the centipedes.  I wanted some bright colors and bright markings.
      C&C Welcome.

      I painted this large water elemental several months back to fill a gap in my water elemental supply.  It started out translucent blue, but I painted it opaque.  I haven't tried inking the transulcents like others have, I lack the inks, and feel I get good control with opaques.  I wanted a simple beach sand looking base, to suggest he has washed up on the beach to harass sunbathers.  C&C Welcome.
