I think someone did a mod where they removed the windows and put pilots in.
If only the trooper miniature quality was as good as the vehicles I would be so happy.
How did you get the body panels outlined? Did you use thinned down wash or did you outline them by hand? Sorry if this is a stupid question but I’m a new painter and I’m trying to figure out what techniques people are using.
I did purchases Legion, but still agree with all your points. I'm weak. It said star wars and I couldn't resist. But let's not also forget the biggest kick in the nuts: You're SW Imperial Assault mini's aren't compatible!
I love all those imperial ships as terrain! I only see the a-wings and x-wing models used.
Saw this picture on a FB page I liked. I though it was pretty well done and wanted to share with you all. Im posting the link to FB below to give credit to them.
edit There are additional photos on the page. enjoy
Is that Lambda one of the old Kenner toys or is it scratch built?
Nice, I've had a vision in my mind of doing something like this, I just lack the funds to buy ship models at the moment.
Any idea what the floor is made of?
John Cena's Bike
I too am looking for my Speeder... last seen in the forest of Keshyyyk https://imgur.com/gallery/m2CZV
I agree it's "easy" from a technical standpoint but I admit my method was a bit tedious. Got a small brush really full of paint, put a dob of paint down and spread it around in a blob, repeat. Wash afterward. Took me about an hour and a half to two hours, but I admit I'm not an efficient painter (I still have unpainted stormtroopers from launch day staring at me, and the game has been out, what a month now?)
Love it did mine base black with camo stripes black and white
Bought a piece of vinyl for 10 bucks it was a light brown, I just hit it with a couple of cans of spray paint and a gloss varnish spray on water
Including cutting it to 6x3 it only took like 20 minutes to do the whole thing, I laid a piece of damp paper towel kind of wadded up rolled and sprayed against it to make waves
Thanks! Sometimes I just get lucky...
Dude, did you just spraypaint a table cloth? That looks awesome!
I hope they release more specialized storm troopers, like the snow troopers
Yep. Agrellan Earth and also Agrellan Badland - I blob both onto the larger bases to mix it up a bit. Then a watered down flesh wash (to give a red/pink tint) then drybrushed with Ushabti Bone.
Its a Games Workshop textured paint called agrellan earth, just trowel it on and when it drys it cracks.
Thanks! Converted from the Luke model and a speeder/scout from the core set. Simple head swap and weapon swap. Rebels seem to love infiltrating the Empire. Had to be done!
"We must make good our escape, Ginger! I'll drive."
thats pretty good mate
SUPER cool! Great idea and great execution.
That's pretty cool. Where did you get the head from?
I made them with Greenstuff.
Woah, these are crazy cool. Did you make the capes or take them from some kit?
Very cool. Great dramatic poses!
Happy there's finally Organized Play stuff coming out. I don't really care about the rewards, just want more incentive to play.
Sorry if this is a dumb question, but I don’t play at a game store. I play with 3 other friends at our houses. Is there a way that we could sign up for this?
You wouldn't be able to get the prize support, that would have to be ordered through a distributor, but you can get the scenarios. They are available on the product page here https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/products/star-wars-legion/
Find the "Support" section near the bottom and look under "Operations".
Probably only need 1 of those, but dodge would need several as a rebel player, and suppression... well yeah.
Looking good, but in my opinion, painting minis white is one of the hardest things to do, to look realistic.
Nice work. I really dig the way you painted each squad with a different accent color; I'm going to be doing something similar, although a bit more subtle to mark all my squads. I will say, I think you should paint the base rings all the same color. IMO it helps with immersion into the game. I would also suggest doing a very fine recess shade/wash of Nuln Oil (shade paint by Games Workshop) or something comparable. Will help define edges and bring a TON more detail out of the minis. Aside from that, I think your paintjob is overall really well executed. Really nicely done :)
Alpha, the droids have escaped. Recruit a team of Troopers with attitude.
