    At my lgs, we got in 12 core sets, and by the end of my shift today 10 were pre-spoken for. I'm excited.

    OldSchoolEmpire reacted to Sorastro in Get Started Painting SW: Legion - New Article   
    Hi folks!
    I’m flattered by the assumption that I had a hand in the painting article because I think it’s really nicely written and layed out, but just to end any speculation I can tell you I wasn’t involved at all.
    Don’t forget they have some very experienced and awesome in-house painters at FFG including the wonderful John Shaffer (who I had the great pleasure of meeting last year) so I don’t think we should be surprised by the quality of this guide.
    Now.. back to doing what I do best - editing the next video (the AT-ST).

    Thursday & Friday are vacation days and my kids are off school for Spring Break.  We will be playing our favorite family game - “The Orphan Game” where the kids leave me alone and act like they are orphans so I can paint all day

    Got my FAT mat, got my preorder in, saved 20% at my FLGS so I was able to get a core, a dice pack,2 troops, 1 support, and 1 heavy for each faction.

    OldSchoolEmpire reacted to ForceSensitive in PSA Speeder bike assembly Wrong   
    Figured somebody else would have posted it, but haven't seen it yet. Quick heads up, the bikes in the core sets don't actually line up to their instructions in the book. Their was a tab and slot missing on the foot pedal assembly that's in the book, but not the model. The workaround is simple, attach the trooper and arms to the bike first, then using the troopers feet as attach points to guide the angle on to the groove of the pedal bar attach point. That is all. Had a picture, it is to high quality to let me load it ?

    I pretty sure we will see future units that are able to provide trooper support the likes of medics(heal wounds), combat engineers(negate/destroy cover), communications (increase command distance bubble). Hopefully they will be sold as support troopers that you can then just attach out to your regular Rebel/Storm trooper units.

    OldSchoolEmpire got a reaction from Undeadguy in Day 1 painting plan   
    Well to be honest the Storm Troopers are going to be pretty straight forward with little color variation. I'll prime/zenithal grey/white. Come back Paint all the black parts, eyes, helmet, joints, hands, weapon. After that highlight the raised parts of the armor and weapons. I'll do the bases separately assembly line fashion, by the time one base is dry then its time to come back for washes and then highlights.  The rebels on the other hand will be the most time consuming as I'm leaning towards a mixed camouflage of various greens/browns, very much like the endor rebels and in general they just have more base colors to lay down and highlight.

    Hi Egilius!
    Good question!  I think there's a trade off to be made; with the Legion Stormtroopers I really wanted to avoid the most arduous part of painting white armour - which is building the white up in multiple layers, which is necessary after shading with a dark wash.  The trade off is that we're then left manually darkening the recesses (although as mentioned in the video, even this isn't really essential).  However, the increased scale and clarity of the Legion models make this a fair bit easier than with the smaller IA miniatures, so for me this seems like the most sensible approach. 
    I also wanted to achieve a cleaner look than I did with the IA Stormtroopers (although I did of course add some selective weathering) which is hard to achieve when throwing a wash on (or using the dry brush technique)
