    Freakin' Stormtroopers

    I used the CItadel base white ("Ceramite") which is highly pigmented.

    There are many strong opinions about priming, it seems. Some people say white, others black or gray. My take on it is that white primer lets you get much brighter colors but black gives you deeper colors. I did all my priming for IA in black except for the storm troopers which I did in white and the AT-ST I did gray. For varnish just use Testors Dullecote as Sorastro suggests, its awesome.

    2015 Store Championship Results

    With a Rebel HWK, no less. Good flying!
  5. Thanks, DarkTemplars, exactly the answer i was hoping for. Someone warned me about spraying clear coat in high humidity when I first started so I have avoided that, now I know it applies to aerosols more generally.
  6. The blushing has occurred during the spraying of black primer. I'm using Krylon flat black (spray paint) at the suggestion of an experienced painter from my FLGS and it worked wonderfully last time. I should have been more clear that my primer is an aerosol spray. For everything else I am using Citadel paints.
  7. Hello, I've been lurking here admiring everyone's pictures since the painting forum started. I recently started painting miniatures, having only painted a couple of my X-wing ships prior to starting on the Imperial assault starter box. I am nearly done painting the starter game, its been great fun and largely successful considering my lack of experience (thank you Sorastro for the videos!). I picked up the first round of expansions this weekend and got down to cleaning them up and priming but something new happened this time. I got a strange effect on my minis which I have discovered is called "blushing", this apparently occurs when painting in high humidity and sure enough it was raining last night. So finally, my question: will this "blushing" have a negative effect if I continue to paint my minis as they are or will they be OK? I'd rather do it right from the start so if I need to strip them and start over tell me now. TL;DR I primed my minis in high humidity and they "blushed", are they OK to paint or should I strip them and re-prime? Thanks! And thank you for posting your collections, its great to see so many different ideas. I'll post pics once I get my Trandoshans done.

    Your dumbest Tournament Mistake

    Back when Tarn and Fletchette torps came out I flew a BBXX with Tarn & Fletchette and Biggs. I had been out of town and unable to play at all for a month so my first mistake was bringing a list I hadn't tried once to a regional tournament. In the course of a tournament filled with mistakes there is one I remember above all others. I was flying against Soontir Fel, another high PS Int (probably Turr) and a naked bounty hunter. I was losing the game but I had a shot at the BH with Tarn, I had a target lock and I decided, since I hadn't let off the fletchette all day that I would spend my TL to do so now. Why not? Well.. because I rolled like ass and had spent my TL, thats why. I could have killed the BH and turned the game but instead I fired ordnance. That's the last torpedo I ever brought to a game.

    The Full Set of Imperial Assault Miniatures

    I shamelessly copied what you did with Vader's eyes. I will link this thread when I finally post pics.

    Inspiring work on those Trandoshans. All of it looks great.

    Painting Help

    I used krylon flat primers on my set and it works great. It was suggested to me by a very experienced miniature painter at my FLGS. For varnish I really like Testors Dullecote, it is a little sensitive to humidity so I only use it on dry days.

    Removing Paint From Minis

    I just stripped the AT-ST after doing something irreversible and dumb. I soaked mine in simple green overnight and went at it with a toothbrush with fine results.
  13. I won't be joining your club. Fixing the Advanced was a hard problem and I think they have gone about it in a very clever way. I can't wait to fly an advanced in a competitive setting..

    Etahn with As or Zs?

    Etahn w/ PTL & R2 Astromech Tarn R7 Tala x 3 PTL for focus & evade every turn as keeping Etahn alive longer is a top priority, R2 clears the stress. Tarn adds a good 3 attack ship to the list that is hard enough to kill that it forces tough target priority decisions from your opponent.
  15. That's not "spider sense tingling", its the thrill OP feels just before he trolls a forum.
