Hot on the heels of the Droids from the previous post, I present the most luckless search party in celluloid history! I am tinkering away with various bits of terrain for a Tatooine themed board and needed a couple of ‘extras’ to set the scene, as it were.
To that end I have grabbed my Imperial Assault Dewback and five Stormtroopers from the Star Wars: Legion core box to represent the Imperial presence. Once again I used Sorastro's painting tutorials for both, which this time saw me take on wet blending with a glaze medium. Another leap of faith, this technique was made all the easier for some cheap palettes, as seen above, found on Amazon for a £1.
I have become so impressed, and perhaps a little bit dependent, on this man’s work that I have decided to become a patron and was pleasantly surprised at the additional PDF guides that this allowed me access to. There is no doubt in my mind that these guides have seen me change my painting style and I would like to think for the better?
Once again the scale discrepancy is notable between the two game systems, but interestingly the backpack on the Dewback rider and that of the Heavy Weapon Trooper are identical in size! Speaking of the Dewback, I needed to adapt the shock lance using some brass rod as the original model's was a bit bendy.
The Stormtroopers are, of course, not really Sandtroopers, but will suffice although they have clearly only just arrived on the planet judging by their mostly pristine armour! If the truth be told, I just couldn't bring myself to wash over my carefully painted work!
