Been puttering away at cleaning up the rebels from the starter.  Tonight had a big gluing session.....

A few more things to assemble and then it'll be time for a big priming session....

A few more Rebel scum assembled.

The other Tauntaun is still in pieces as they need a little work to get the legs to all fit in nicely, and after almost stabbing myself in the palm picking up my knife wrong, I decided that was enough for now.....

Got some more assembly in....I left the harder pieces until the end.

 

I finally got to the AT-RT.  Seems it has 3 weapons options...so out came the magnets.

3/32"x 1/16"  seemed like a good fit (and I could find them!). Even found a drill bit....

So I managed to get it assembled (pilot is still loose until after priming), the other tauntaun, and the two speeder bike pilots from the starter set.

Might get back to work on the speeder bikes later tonight. Maybe....I could use some extra sleep too. We'll see which happens....

Got the last two speeder bikes put together.  Also assembled one other little Imperial unit.....

The "head" is still removable to make priming and painting easier.

 

Up next, pins for the Imperials, a quick wash, straightening a couple of weapons, and then time for priming.

I also need to check that I have enough of the fancy bases for all the different Imperial units....

Priming has commenced.....

That's all of the rebels done except for the tauntauns, since they will get primed in white when the stormtroopers do, and the weapons for the AT-RT, which will get black when Vadar does.

I still need to finish putting pins in the feet of the Imperials and giving them a wash, so they will get primed in a day or two.

looking good!

 

Now would you be so kind to disclose the exact location of this Rebel Scum these Fine Young Citizens?

I'll have to check them all to see if anything needs touch ups, but otherwise everything is good for painting now. Time to order some more figs!

Impressive.  I spent yesterday assembling Battle Droids.  I'm starting to hate battle droids.

Sadly, that's going to get harder - did you see that Asmodee and FFG have suspended all shipments?

Yeah, I heard.   But I had the lfgs send me pictures of what they have in stock. I wasn't planning on buying more rebels right away, but since I have at least one unit of everything Imperial they still have in stock, looks like I'll by getting some rebels and help support my local store.  They are doing deliveries on Mondays and Fridays, so I'll get them to drop me a few things on Friday. Just have to decide which ones to get next ::):

Been a bit getting my painting area back into shape (the new resin printer was a bit of a distraction).

Hoping to play a simple game of SWL with my wife this weekend, and while all the rebel stuff is based, my Imperials don't get bases until they are painted. Since I want at least a leader and an unit for the game, that means I need to paint a Vader.....

Just a quick base coat following the guide they have online.

I've since done a wash, so tomorrow I'll try to get him finished. It will be a quick job, but should look ok.  And I have the Operative Expansion version as well if I want to take more time on one in the future.

I have neglected to check this thread lately! I almost missed the Vader being painted! Great work on what I have seen so far, I shall have to peruse the rest of the thread now!
