    Finally finished my Shoretroopers squad. They took longer than expected, but I'm happy with the result.

    The alternate Vader mini from Skullforge - "King of Ashes".
    IMO a a better miniature that the FFG one. 
    The sculpt represent a younger Vader, maybe some months after Ep. III, not fully suited to his new cyborg legs and arms and still as overconfident as Anakin.

    Groupshot with Skullforge Vader and FFG Storm Troopers.
    and as always, more on my site: http://www.adpublishing.de/html/legion.html

    It actually looks like he's wearing more Stormtrooper style armor in the beginning,  but slowly replacing with Beskar, using the payments from the guy in the trailer. (Not complaining,  I really like the idea)

    Well Beskar, though remaining unnamed for awhile, as you may know was originally the creation of West End Games (where I was worked at for the better part of 8 years) and I’m happy that it got a mention in the Black Series figure and the series showrunners are doing their research. 
     
    Surprisingly while I can NOT paint the side of a moisture farm tan,  I’m actually rather quite handy in the kitchen.   I’ve helped open 15 restaurants in New York (on the marketing side), the latest, Cathédral, we just opened two nights ago to much fanfare.   I wore Imperial Emblem cufflinks (alas my date eschewed the Naboo hairstyle).  
     
    As for being original, since I was part of the team that created at least 80% of the former Canon that later became the Expanded Universe (you may have heard of the Victory Star Destroyer or Duros or the E-11 blaster rifle or the Hounds Tooth or that there are 72 TIEs in an Imperial Naval Fighter Wing),  I think I should get at least a passing grade there.   
    Thanks for asking.  
     
    Edit:  For a very recent examples,  I help design the soft drink bottles at Galaxy’s Edge (which was temporarily not legal to fly with by the TSA,  but Disney lobbying is strong in The Force), and I made Canon that the empty seat in the Death Star conference room in A New Hope was that of Director Krennic’s.   While not obvious to the casual fan, Director Krennic was a member of COMPNOR, which I helped design.   Another memeber of COMPNOR was Colonel Wullf Yularen, who we named for the Decipher Collectible Card Game, but decades later made it to The Clone Wars animated series.   I could go on but as you said you can Google all this.

    Another mini from SOLO - the Mimbanese Resistance.
    The Mimbanese were one of several sentient species native to the planet Mimban. The Mimbanese had the unsettling ability to disappear in the mud and murk of their homeworld.
    During the Clone Wars, the Mimbanese allied themselves with the Grand Army of the Galactic Republic. Under the leadership of tribal leader Iasento, the Mimbanese organized a Liberation Army. Junior Representative Jar Jar Binks was sent to help the 224th and 501st interface with the Mimbanese. With aid from the Mud Jumpers of the Grand Army's 224th division, the Mimbanese fought the Confederacy of Independent Systems. They were successful in repelling the Separatists from Mimban.
    Following the Republic's transformation into the Galactic Empire, the Mimbanese fought the 224th's Swamp troopers.

    The above mini is Iasento, he was a male Mimbanese who served as a member of the Mimbanese Liberation Army during the reign of the Galactic Empire. Prior to the Clone Wars, Iasento was the leader of a Mimbanese tribe in the Nanth flatlands. When Mimban came to the attention of the Separatists during the war, the Galactic Republic's 224th Division, the Mud Jumpers, armed and trained Iasento and his men.
    Another incredible good mini from Skull Forge Studios! Printed by SFS directly, way better than Shapeways!!!

    BlueSquadronPilot reacted to Alpha17 in Alpha's Army (Now with Appo and Tauntauns)   
    Small update for today, but I'm pleased with out he turned out.  Started out as yet another Death trooper conversion, but I decided to base this one on Appo, Rex's replacement as the commander of the 501st.  Technically, the pauldron should be on the other shoulder to be Appo, so, I guess this guy would be Oppa then?
     
    As a side note, I decided to add a bit of an artistic flair on him.  Since Appo was the Clone Commander in charge of securing the Jedi Temple during Order 66, I added some spare lightsabers from Grievous to the base.  It's the simple, silly things in life I enjoy.

    The Mandalorian will explore the origins of The First Order
     
    The Mandalorian plans to use elements from across the Skywalker Saga films, The Clone Wars and other animated series and the Extended Universe in its storytelling.

    I'm about sick of painting Rebel Vets.  Painted up two squads for me, then agreed to do a third for a friend as a commission.  Then I ended up doing another for another friend.  Blah.  On the plus side, I did finally remember to get a picture of all of them.
    My units, the Space French, in their 1914 and then 1916 colors:
    The first commission, also Space French, but these guys are based off of France's colonial troops (which is why I grouped all the Sullustans into the squad)
    And finally, Tauntaun Scout's favorite, good old fashion Hoth troopers.  Oh, how I hated painting these guys.
     
    As soon as I finish up some commission Tuantauns, I'll share a picture of them.

    If you want to watch the Mandalorian right away you will need to subscribe for the year as opposed to a month and just ending it there once you are done. $8.99 vs $89.99

    Oh definitely, by far my favorite of the Disney Star Wars. Also think Solo deserves more love. It's a heist film set in the Star Wars Galaxy, what's not to love?

    Underrated? It's probably the most highly regarded Star Wars movie of the last 20 years. 😃 
    For good reason though.

    To this day I think rogue one is underrated. 
    I think it has not only brought armada back.... hammerheads .... raddus... mc75...  but injected Star Wars into the people. 
    also it is a great movie.. 
    i find very little flaws in it, and I hope the rise of the sky walker can learn from it.
