My LFGS had a painting contest on its FB Star Wars Legion page a bit ago. 2 weeks to paint up a squad of at least 4 figures. As creativity counted, I decided to set my white and black paint aside and paint something besides Stormtroopers.
I took a look through the Rebel scum I'd acquired and really like the poses and sculpts for the Rebel Veterans.
I'd planned to do the whole box of 7 figures, but (as anyone who's seen my WIPs knows) I'm not the fastest painter. I'm lucky if I can get one figure done in two weeks.
So I quickly decided to just do 4 figures for the contest.
I liked how they came out, and they did get "best painted" in the contest, so I guess they are alright.
It then took me another 6 weeks to finally finish the last 3 figures (see? Sloooooow.)
But the whole unit is finally done.
Should probably read the rules on them sometime soon.....
Now back to all those Stormtroopers.
Putting my new Photon through its paces printing some Heroforge sculpts.
The halfling operative is actually a mash-up of two Heroforge sculpts in Tinkercad. (Why can't Heroforge let you have just a single cyberarm?)
Didn't think to photograph her till I had the primer on:
The first print of the gnome solarion didn't have enough supports on the arm with the fireball, so after cleaning the resulting lump out of the vat and trying again with more supports, here she is, supports and all:
So I was just about to check out my first Star Wars Legion game night at the lfgs when the whole apocalypse thing happened, so rather than painting my Imperials, I've been focusing on getting my rebel scum assembled so that wife (who is "mostly" interested in playing) and I can learn to play here at home. With that complete I now need to get some more Imperials finished so we can actually play, since I'm not attaching bases to the Imperials until they are painted.
As my wife actually agreed to play this weekend, that meant I needed a commander quick! So I pulled up the FFG guide online to paint Vader and knocked out a decent tabletop in a couple of hours.
Good enough and he already squeaked on a victory yesterday in our first game (he had one wound left).
Now back to painting white armor to get more troopers ready.....sigh.
Coming in March.
