    I'd expect the ruling to follow the X-Wing ruling.   Simply because they cannot make a rule that covers every possible scenario - sure you may do something small like toss a different blaster into Luke's hand... but then the next guy mods a royal guard champion to look like a stormtrooper, in hopes that you mistake one for the other...  
     
      So they'd have no choice but to do a blanket ruling saying mods aren't allowed.   That's my guess.

    That's a huge improvement Ewok.  I wish I thought to practice on extra models first.  I done my officers last night, they only eed a spray of varnish before I head to work then the 'Ardcoat boots when I get home.
     
    These are my first figures that I'm 95 % happy with.  While struggling with poor lighting (it turns out Incubi Darkness and Stegadon Scale Green are a tiny bit different) I held the base of the figure on my knee and rested the wrist of my painting hand on my lower thigh.  This allowed me to hold the figure and brush a lot steadier than before.  As the knee is curved it also allows you to move the figure about to get different angles while keeping the figure steady and getting better light from above.
     
    So, here they are.  I'll to the finishing touches tonight and probably hold off on the AT-ST until the weekend.  With no grey spray primer it's going to obliterate my paint supply.  You'll need to get Darth Vader uploaded soon Sorastro, I'm catching up!
     
     
    Edit:
    I really need to get better at cleaning up the mould lines.  I have the Citadel mould line remover tool which doesn't seem idea for this type of plastic.  I think ideally I need a good file.

    To elaborate a little, to me, the iconic sandtrooper look is of one holding a DLT-19.

    Maybe a 2 man sandtrooper card each with a heavier weapon than the stormtroopers. Would tie in to the visual look we expect and still make sense to field them with stormtroopers without feeling redundant.
    A three man scum group, something lighter/longer range woulld be great.

    After zooming in on a better screen he just has a regular Stormtrooper helmet.
    I'd be really surprised if Leia is hidden in the box. I bet she'll be a seperate expansion in conjunction with a future major/mini expansion.

    Coming to think of it they have a coloured pauldron too.  However I'm still convinced this is a Sand Trooper.
     
    Edit:
     
    Just realised what I'm saying is these twin shadows are Boba Fett and a Jango Fett clone!  Perhaps anyway, would also make them sort of twins...

    Ah, are you thinking they will share the same base?  Effectively being one unit?

    You are talking about the mini campaign.  My bad!

    Hi all from Sunny (cold and wet) Nottingham
     
    Hope you are all well.
     
    I am enjoying playing Imperial Assault when I get a chance and find myself wanting to paint the miniature. Between the 9 to 5 grind, killing zombies (Dying Light), writing an assignment for my course, and the important family time, I don't have much spare in my daily schedule. But the pull of the force is strong (want to paint them) and I am trying to put in around an hour a day to get the mini's painted.
     
    So first night of painting has resulted in one completed Stormtrooper and about half way through a Nexu (see below). Found that painting black and white of the Stormtrooper more fun then it should be for a simple colour scheme. Though not sure if I am happy to leave the bases plain black.
     
    First lesson of the first painting session: cleaning the mold lines!....
     
    Apologies for the quality of the pictures using the phone to take the photos.
     
    Anyway back to work for me, critiques and comments welcome.
     
    Yours 
    Fitzbaron

    Finished up some probe droids just in time for a campaign. I love the touch of gloss on the eyes to give it the eerie quality. All the models I've painted so far have been figures I bought off eBay just in case I messed up the ones that came with the game.

    Now that I've gained some confidence with painting the ones I bought off eBay, I went back to our stormtroopers to help identify them in the finale. Our imperial player is using the trooper boosting deck so I think he'll appreciate differentiating the four squads

    I'm not anywhere near a competent model painter, but I am happy about the progress I've personally made - especially paying more attention to details. Here's one of my first stormtroopers compared to one I just got done highlighting:

    They aren't perfect, but it is a blast to see them on the board!
    Keep up the awesome videos, Sorastro.

    Here are most of my painted minis. Boba Fett is from knight's models, IG88, elite imp commander, RGC, Han, and rebel troopers are touched up/repainted star wars minis, and the saboteurs are a combination of rebel bodies and Duros heads. The stormtroopers still need obvious work.

    Hi 
     
    I have finished my first miniature for Imperial Assault. The minis are pretty good way above the usual boardgaming standard and that allows for some pretty cool results.
