‘The Dark Templar’ Reynolds succumbed and bought the core box that I finally found my own resolve falter. Mike has always had a thing for the dark side, and so what better excuse did a chap need to start a rebel force than to halt this evil oppression in its tracks?
Once again the incredibly talented Sorastro came to my rescue with a tutorial that explored creating camouflage patterns, by layering washes on to areas of water, allowing the colours to bleed and run into each other. It is well documented that my attention span is not of the highest order when it comes to batch painting, but fortunately there was enough variety in the effects used to keep me on track.
I can’t explain why, but I have taken against them, perhaps because I prefer to base my wargames miniatures on a lower profile to fit better with the terrain? Whatever the reason I made the decision to base my efforts on my usual 25mm MDF disks from ‘Warbases’. I happen to think that they look better and given that I am unlikely to be entering any tournaments, I am not overly bothered what anyone else thinks!
So with a final coat of varnish my first completed miniatures for Star Wars: Legion, a full three squads of core troopers.
