    Hi Aniron! I'm honestly a little swamped with work at the moment so I'm not sure when I'll get to them. I'd like to cover everything but it's extremely hard to keep up! Hi mate! Not especially, although it does often work out that way. I just like to cover the more interesting or "hot" minis as videos, and the other stuff as PDFs (especially if they're minis I've covered in the IA series and I don't feel I have much new to add) You're welcome Thevshi!

    Hi! They're pretty good value for sure. I just find certain colours a bit tricky to get a nice coat with so I tend to favour Vallejo/Citadel (and more recently some ScaleColor) Hi Lukez! Yes I am!

    Hello! I'm a little late posting this here as I was away visiting family over Christmas when the video launched, but I hope you enjoy(ed) my take on Sabine Wren. Also I'd like to thank all of my dear viewers for the kind words of encouragement that have played such a big part in helping motivate me to reach this 50th episode!

    Thanks a lot Rugal! I hear you RE the bases; my figures actually spend 99.9% of the time sitting in a cabinet so it makes sense for me to give the bases the scenic treatment; clear acrylic bases might be my preferred option if I wanted the minis to blend in with the board however Thank you ZAR! Wow getting that lot painted up is quite an accomplishment, and I bet they look great on the tabletop!

    Hey mate - they look fantastic! Really well done

    Hi Shecian! Thanks a lot! It looks like they've used quite a dark pink-ish tone for the arms and legs, and I think Screamer Pink (if you're using Citadel paints) would be a close match. You could then add some gentle highlights by mixing in a little ivory or cream (like Screaming Skull) perhaps.

    Cool - (I meant to say "except I wouldn't do the force lightning effects..")

    Hi! I'm actually not yet sure whether I'll cover Palpatine as a video or not as I fairly recently covered the Imperial Assault Palpatine miniature and I'm not sure whether there's much that I would do differently (except I wouldn't do the force lightning effects of course).

    Hi Ocule! Firstly - well done! He doesn't look too bad at all (many people forget to paint the black band across the front of the helmet!). There are so many ways to paint any figure, and the stormtroopers are no different. For my preferred way of painting large numbers of the Legion stormtroopers you can see in my video that I chose not to shade the figure, but draw in the dark lining by hand to avoid having to spend time highlighting the white armour back up again. You may of course prefer to do what I did with my IA stormtroopers and shade the whole mini to more easily define the recesses - you'll just then probably want to spend time highlighting the white armour which can be a bit of a pain. Some people even like to dry brush their stormtroopers from black or grey all the way up to pure white (and then paint the dark details). I think it's good to explore a range of options and go with what works for you!

    Hi folks! I've got another PDF guide for anyone who might be interested in trying a camo variant for their Scout Troopers. You can download the PDF for free HERE. Enjoy!

    Hi Ocule! Sorry for the late reply; your comment sneaked under my radar! For most of my stormtroopers after priming with the off white, you can see I actually used Vallejo's Dead White (which isn't a primer) to provide the white highlights from above. However, I didn't have any problem using the Tamiya fine white surface primer to provide the highlights on those that I tested it on. To be clear though, this isn't how I would paint white if I was painting a single hero figure or something because I would usually build up the tone using off-whites/creams etc to create more nuance and volume, but for masses of stormtoopers I think it's a nice quick way to get them ready for the table.

    Interesting! Whether the spray-can MSG is technically a primer or not, it sure goes on the mini and provides a nice coat for painting on - just like a primer. I've not tried the airbrush MSG however so can't compare the two. It could be that it's the same..?
