Imperial Assault Core Set--Complete!

Recommended Posts

Great job!  I paused work on mine about 80% through to work on Bones fantasy minis.  I’ll get the rest done, someday...

I think 80% is about where I stalled out the first time.  There was just simply so much that we never used, that it made more sense to get in basics and heroes from other sets first.

 

To date, the only time the Royal Guard Champion has hit the table was as a substitute for Maul...And I don't think we've ever had Chewie.  Most of the others have made it, if only once.

      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.

      I finished Hera a few days ago, then Chopper earlier today, and finally the Dewback Rider this evening!
       
      I'm not feeling up to writing out a little story or dragging out the tiles for the game, so it's straight up pictures.  Even the pictures are lacking in quality tonight with too much light and bad focal ranges.  Still, you'll get the idea.
       


       
      Regular and Elite Jet Troopers.  FFG sent two flight pegs with each base, but honestly that's a lot of height.  Although I admit I thought about having the Elites on two pegs.
       


       
      Regular and Elite Gamorrean Guards.  I varied the colors on the fur pants and through their skin tones.
       


       
      Weequay Pirates.  Again the skin tones and uniform colors were tweaked a bit.  The rifles are a bit flimsier than they look.  I just about broke one by accident.
       



       
      In order: Onar Kona (an Aqualish bodyguard), Shyla Verad (Mandalorian bounty hunter), and Vinto Hreeda (Rodian gunslinger).
       
      The art has Onar as green, but I defaulted to blue and by the time I realized my mistake it was too late.  Onar is one of the rarer four-eyed Aqualish.
      I used the Twilight Purples for Shyla.  I'd been looking for an excuse to use that set.  Her cloak is grey-white and the Beskar shines brightly.
      Vinto was a bit of a splurge in terms of colors I wanted to use.  A little louder than most Rodians we see, but I don't think it's outlandish.  I'm going to have to get back to "regular" green for Rodians pretty soon when I get back to "Hired Guns."
       


       
      I wanted one Dewback for each configuration, so I've got the regular rider and Captain Terro.  The regular dewback is a little lighter than I wanted, but I think it works well enough.  Captain Terro's dewback is based on a lizard I saw in the central part of the state.  I originally dropped the first Terro torso and snapped the tip of his flamethrower straight off.  I was not happy.
       

       
      The Jawa Scavenger (or Luke Skywalker, Jedi Knight) might well count as my first speed paint!  Only about an hour and a half on it, and I think it looks like a solid enough job for tabletop.
       

       
      Jabba the Hutt.  We saw him back in The Bespin Gambit, but this is his home.  Easy enough job, lots of drybrushing.  I started trying to highlight, but quickly realized that the skin texture would lend itself to the drybrush well enough.
       

       
      Alliance Rangers.  I was surprised when I realized that they were women (you pretty much have to look up from under the arm or straight down from the top to notice).  The rifle gets in the way of the painting.
       

       
      Luke Skywalker, Jedi Knight.  I used Muddy Soil to bring up the black on the jump suit.  The tunic is a grey.  The lightsaber blade is too short, and the handle too long.  Nothing I can do about those things with my current skill set.  Luke was another speed paint, or close to it.  I tell you, finishing two minis in under five hours made me feel like a king!
       

       
      C1-10P (aka Chopper, aka Spectre 3) and Hera Syndulla (aka Spectre 2).  I'm not that into Rebels...It's kind of fun and fluffy.  And that lack of engagement has hurt my ability to focus and get things done on these two.  Plus there was more green, and as a rule I do not much care for green.  I used one of the bone triads on Chopper as I felt his age and general bad attitude would keep him a bit dingy.  Hera's not quite the right shade of green, and I should have really worked some freehand circles for the designs on her lekku, but I think it works.  
       

       
      Which leaves us at the Rancor.  This thing's huge.  The base is a little undersized at about 2.5" x 1.75" (instead of the full 3"x2" that it should be).  It went faster than I thought.  I used two different brown triads on the Rancor, one for the "armor" plates and the other for the flesh.  It's tough to see in the picture, but it's more obvious in person.
       
      Up next: Ahsoka Tano and the AT-DP from Heart of the Empire or the nagendra from Bones IV.  Decisions, decisions.
       
      Thanks for stopping by!
       
      PS:
      I forgot about BT-1 and 0-0-0.  They were done, but even though I actually picked them up, I forgot to include them.  D'Oh!


    • By strawhat
      So, as it turns out, I...uhhh...misspoke...when I said Jabba's Realm was complete.  Well, I mean it was/is but I forgot to include a couple minis:
       
      BT-1 and 0-0-0.  Two droids of ill intent.  Basically, they boil down to a trigger happy astromech and a sadistic protocol droid.  Mostly black with some accents.  The "glowing" spot on 0-0-0's hand is meant to represent its electric shock attack.


       
      On to Coruscant!
       
      Clawdite Shifters.  First one up is modeled after The Punisher.  That's supposed to be a mythosaur skull on it's chest.  It almost resembles it.  Not a bad attempt, I guess, but it misses the mark.  He was for funsies: the boxed set gives you four minis, but only three cards...so one of the Shifters is a "bonus" that you really can't use in the game.

       
      I had a relaxed attitude toward the rest, no real plan.

       
      And Maul.  Yes, that Maul (it's all explained in the Clone Wars tv show).  No longer a Sith, he's no longer referred to as "Darth."  This is, I believe, his look from Rebels.

       
      On to the heros:
       
      Drokkatta, the trigger-happiest wookkiee you'll ever meet!  She's a blast to play.  I figured that she needed to be a redhead, for no reason whatsoever.  She bears no similarity of temperament to any redhead I've ever known.  Not a one.

       
      Jarrod Kelvin.  He's cool, I guess.  I mean, he's got knives like Wolverine!

       
      Ko-Tun Feralo, is a Cerean Rebel quartermaster.  She brings the goodies to the fight.

       
      Last, but not least, Ahsoka Tano!  I wish I'd seen her in Rebels before I started painting this figure.  I liked her costume from that show better than her Clone Wars one (which this more closely resembles).  Those facial tattoos are not great.  Tiny work, and I figured it was better to do what I did and not louse it up further.  The markings on her crest aren't great either, but like Maul's tattoos they get the job done.  I tried to pattern them off the Black Series action figure.

       
      On to the home team (Boooo!):
       
      Elite Sentry Droids.  

       
      Regular Sentry Droids.

       
      Regular Riot Troopers.

       
      Elite Riot Troopers.

       
      Emperor Palpatine.

       
      AT-DP.  I am not happy with this one.  But as it won't see much play time, it's not really worth the effort to properly fix.  The blue is mostly "ok," but the round pods on the side of the cockpit were supposed to be another shade or two darker than the rest of the walker.  The base color (Rainy Grey) wasn't covering well, and was taking forever.  I didn't like the look of it afterwards (thought it was too light), and figured a black wash would get the recesses done right...It didn't quite work out that way.  Still, it's done.

       
      I also need to remember not to use a white background.  It's washing out the photos.
       
      I am at 97% for the sets we regularly use!  I have seven Rebels (including Han Solo and Chewbacca) and an AT-ST to complete for the Core set...and the Nexu need some finishing work, but they could go as is.  Then on to Twin Shadows (Tuskens and Boba Fett)!
