It has been a dark time for the Galactic Empire.
Strong meta for the other factions have lead to few victories,
and the faith of many Imperial commanders had been tested.
But now, when all seemed lost, and new RRG has emerged.
Unit costs have decreased.
Changes have breathed new life into nearly abandoned Imperial troops.
And leading the way, mighty Lord Vader's Sith training has made him even more powerful and devastating.
Now is the time, for the Empire to strike back!!
So, a new year, and a new Star Wars Legion painting WIP.
Last year started strong but then I almost completely stopped painting for quite a while. Instead I focused on getting a bunch of units assembled, as I was playing fairly regularly. My back going to crap probably had some impact on my painting too, all those meds aren't helping with my focus or energy levels.
Regardless, I've finally felt like painting again the last week or so. So I'm going to go with it and hope to settle in to a schedule where I'm getting a few hours of painting in a week.
My goals for this year are to get back to painting Empire forces, but also to finish up painting my CIS army.
For the CIS I still have to paint two more units of B1s, and base them and the 2 units I've just finished up in the old WIP.
Then there are 3 units of STAPs, 3 units of Droidekas. 3 Spider Droids. 3 boxes of Magnaguards. 3 boxes of Bx commandos. A bunch of commanders and specialists. Oh, and 2 snail tanks, and two AATs.......so a bit...also 1 more unit of B2s if they ever come in.
But, as soon as I get through the 2 units of B1s (they take up too much room on my desk to work on anything else at the same time) I'll start moving in some Imperial units to mix it up. And get back to painting white......
I got this 7" alien at Walmart for $10. He was sprayed with black car primer, then overbrushed with a mix of Vallejo Chocolate Brown and Black. That was followed by a lighter overbrush of Chocolate Brown, Flat Earth and Black before a final drybrush of Flat Earth. I gave him two coats of homemade black wash (craft paint mixed with matte medium, flow improver and water) and his skull got four coats of Citadel Ardcoat to make it shine. The drool is small lengths of fishing line with superglue dribbled down them. They're held on with more superglue and gloss Mod Podge. There are a couple of spots on his ankles that need touching up, but on the whole I'm well happy with him. I'm working on the egg and facehugger.
