...any, any, any old iron?
I have a hankering for a Tatooine themed board for Star Wars: Legion and nothing says Tatooine more than Jawas and Droids. I had already painted several of these wasteland natives curtesy of Imperial Assault, but have added to these with some Wizards of the Coast pre-painted Star Wars Miniatures and some new 3D printed sculpts from Skull Forge Studios. All were primed, including the pre-painted ones, which on reflection seemed a waste of time, and based to match the existing models in my collection.
The 3D printed sculpts were lovely, but a little smaller than I imagined so I decided to raise them a little with an additional washer. Then, following a painting tutorial from Sorastro, set about polishing off half a dozen of the little scrap metal merchants, before turning my attention to their stock and trade.
I seem to have amassed quite an assortment of Droids from various benefactors and manufactures over the years. They have sat idle for far too long whilst I pondered over colours and designations. Now, with a little more time at my disposal, I decided to stop prevaricating and get on with it!
With decisions made and research completed, I was pleasantly surprised and how quickly I managed to get through them. Having decided that these droids were going to have found themselves abandoned on such a desolate place, they were given a fair amount of rust and weathering, which had the added advantage of concealing a multitude of mistakes.
