  1. I was so happy when FFG released 3 of my favourite characters all at once, and started working on them right away. Here's good old Greedo: I'm pleased that FFG seems to have given us the original 1977 version of Greedo (which is to say, the Greedo who is slow to fire), unlike the revised, post-1997 Greedo that shoots first but inaccurately. After all, the Greedo we get in this Villain Pack is defined by his special characteristic "Slow on the Draw". The miniature also seems to be fumbling with his pistol, which is a nice touch. And let's hope that after the Grand Inquisitor, we'll soon get lots of other characters from Rebels. The only thing that drives me crazy about this miniature is his excessively bendy lightsaber. I had to replace his blades (and Obi-Wan's) with thin copper wire. What do you think, is he Snoke? And then the best of all: SPACE GANDALF... He's a beautiful sculpture... lots of movement and drama. I've also created galleries with pictures of painted versions of all the Imperial Assault minis. If you're interested, you can find them here: Rebels: http://www.oldenhammer.com/p/star-wars-imperial-assault-miniatures.html Imperials: http://www.oldenhammer.com/p/star-wars-imperial-assault-miniatures_26.html Mercenaries:http://www.oldenhammer.com/p/star-wars-imperial-assault-miniatures_12.html Thanks for looking! And if you have any question about what paints or colours I used, I'm happy to share.
  2. Sorry about the late reply, Lord Citrus - I was out of town for a few weeks. I used a basecoat of Charred Brown (Vallejo paints), and then started highlighting with increasingly light combinations of Charred Brown mixed with Beasty Brown and a hint of Dwarf Skin. I made the lids of her eyes and the palms of her hands a little lighter -- using even more Dwarf Skin in the mixture.
  3. I think you did a beautiful job on his face - it really looks like Alec G.
  4. Here are all the minis from the Bespin Gambit Boxed Set. I loved the mini for Davith -- great energy and poise in this miniature: But I was not as happy with Murne. She looked silly with her pistol hanging limply in her hand, plus that awful staff. So I made a couple quick modifications: I painted the Ugnaughts in the "traditional" blue apron. (By traditional, I mean I wanted them to look as much like a Kenner action figure as possible): And finally with Wing Guard. A nice, simple miniature with good detail: I've also created galleries with pictures of painted versions of all the Imperial Assault minis.

  5. I just finished a mammoth 8 day painting session, and got through all the minis for the Bespin Gambit. Now I can't wait to play! Here's sweet, sweet Lando Calrissian. I loved painting him -- he's one of my all time favourite characters And then there's Bossk. I tried to make his somewhat complex uniform as simple as possible -- I think the bright colours and good pose should be the focus of this miniature. Agent Blaise. Why is he shaking his fist at his enemies, rather than pointing and shooting his scary looking gun? Old people are strange. I love the ISB Infiltrators with their ultraviolet armour. I tried to make them look as Aryan as possible -- after all, aren't they just Space Gestapo? I've got some more pictures, plus a conversion of some other ISB Infiltrators (ahem, SCOUT HELMETS) here: http://www.oldenhammer.com/2016/06/painted-star-wars-miniatures-bespin.html Thanks for looking!
  6. I've been most impressed with the strategic capabilities of Banthas. Not only their destructive capabilities, but also their strategic value: they can shove opponents out of the way and literally sit on Terminals or other skirmish objectives. Anyway, I've recently written 2 battle reports (with painted miniatures and scenery) regarding Banthas: The searing triumph of the Bantha: http://www.oldenhammer.com/2016/05/imperial-assault-battle-report-bantha.html And an apocalyptic battle between Banthas and Wookies: http://www.oldenhammer.com/2016/05/imperial-assault-battle-report-bantha_25.html
  7. As part of the Star Wars - Force for Change charitable campaign, I'm auctioning off one of my favourite miniatures: my conversion of Darth Vader without his helmet. Anyone, if you or someone you know might be interested in this, please pass the word. I'm donating 100% of the proceeds to UNICEF through eBay's charitable selling program. Anyway, the eBay listing is here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/172160275187 And you can find more info about the campaign here: http://www.oldenhammer.com/2016/04/force-for-change-star-wars-charity.html Thanks for looking!
  8. For my own part, I also hope they fill out the range from Episodes IV, V and VI before delving into The Force Awakens. I hope we'll get Cloud City, Endor and something around Jabba's palace/Sarlacc Pitt (who doesn't want to play a skirmish with those skiffs circling the pit?). But my deep hope is that they'll start releasing some alternate versions of the iconic characters: Luke as Jedi, Leia in her white robes and sporting blaster, Leia disguised as a bounty hunter, and Chewie with Threepio bundled up on his back. By the way, does anyone have any insight into whether the game designers at FFG pay attention to these threads? I hope so...
  9. Such great stuff! I just love your Nexu... all the details really make them come alive. They have a sort of punk-rock feel to them. And your Walkers are amazing too. Lovely weathering -- and you achieved a fine metallic texture for them. Lovely work!
  10. Nope - no washes. I basecoated the Snowtroopers with a 1:1 mix of Vallejo Light Grey and White. I then applied successive layers of highlighting by mixing in more white, until I got to the final highlight of pure white (which sometimes had to be applied in a few coats to get it to really shine). I then did a little bit of outlining in black or Stone Grey (and lots of clean up).
  11. Thanks Fishlegs! That tank took me forever. I think it helps with its look to place it on a slightly elevated stand, so that it appears to float over the table.
  12. Sometimes simplicity is the toughest thing to paint! I just got through painting the villains in Return to Hoth, and they were tricky because I decided to remain fairly faithful to the Star Wars aesthetic and paint the figures in simple, uniform colours: white Snowtroopers, off-white Wampas, whitish hover tank, etc etc. Anyhow, I hope you enjoy! SC2-M Hover Tank Snowtroopers HK Assassin Droids HK Assassin Droids (elite) Wampas Thanks for looking! If you want more pictures, my galleries of the complete Imperial Assault range are here: Rebels: http://www.oldenhammer.com/p/star-wars-imperial-assault-miniatures.html Imperials: http://www.oldenhammer.com/p/star-wars-imperial-assault-miniatures_26.html Mercenaries:http://www.oldenhammer.com/p/star-wars-imperial-assault-miniatures_12.html
  13. And now that I've played with the Hired Guns a couple times, I realize that skirmish-wise, they're not as bad as I originally thought. Their parting shot ability can be extremely useful. It makes them a fun unit to play with.
  14. That's a great looking build Jagd. Thanks for sharing! I gave Leia a whirl the other day (with a classic ensemble of Han, Chewie, Threepio and R2). I did handle Leia very well, and I got beaten like a gong.
