    Hello! I've been slowly chipping my way through the IA miniatures my group owns over the past year since we started playing, and... I'm nowhere near done. But I thought I would post the progress I've made so far. Comments and suggestions would be very much appreciated!



    Starting with some Imperial forces. Someday the completionist in me is going to have to return to the last squad of Stormtroopers, but it is not this day.

    The heroes of our first campaign, showing a little bit of battle damage.

    And the heroes from our second campaign (plus Diala). I was really proud of my work on Gideon especially, but man these three were a pain to play imperial against!

    These guys are a nice little painting clinic- I'm excited to paint the elite ones to see how my highlighting has improved!

    Meanwhile painting the second E-Webb is very low on my priority list.



    That's all from the core set. Luke and Darth Vader both seem like they would be tricky to get right, so I've put them off.

    Hoth heroes! Loku might be tied with Diala for my favorite hero mini.


    Despite being such a simple and easy paint, these are some of my favorites.


    Finally, some Coruscant minis. I only noticed today that I interpreted the map gridlines as part of the actual tile pattern, haha

    Lastly, my current progress on the Coruscant heroes.

    Hey everyone! With the current situation I've been able to paint a lot, but unfortunately I can't bring my work to the table to show everyone as we've moved over to vassal. Hopefully posting them here can make up for it!

    Finally painted Darth Vader! I was torn on whether to use gloss varnish on the helmet, and in the end it clashes a bit with the painted on highlights. But overall I'm happy with the result.


    These guys took me a long time due to the white clothing. I ended up painting a lot of highlighting layers that were probably unnecessary- the white paint I was using dries a bit darker than it appears going on. I figured the facial hair on trooper #2 would fit in well with the OT rebels...


    With these ones I was really trying to bring out the colour gradient on the metal sections as well as putting in some exaggerated edge highlights on the blue. Our current Hoth campaign imperial player loves using HKs so I'm especially sad I can't put these on the table!

    Lastly, I finished these persistent Rhodians a long time ago but apparently forgot to include them in my original post. Looking back I like what I went for with #2; I don't think I was quite able to pull off the official pink colour scheme.

    Thanks for the feedback! I haven't had too much time for painting in the last months, but I'm happy to share my most recent miniatures.

    The Coruscant heroes, finished just in time for the campaign finale. The red carpeting on the bases was an unusual choice, and will certainly stand out in non-Coruscant campaigns, but I like the end effect.

    After the heroes I wanted to paint something simple again. They're not much different than my first set- even with practice, highlighting takes a lot of patience. But I'm hoping for gradual improvement.

    Lastly, my first massive figure! I use brush on primer and varnish, so a figure like this gets time consuming. 

    Following Sorastro, I tried to represent a strong light source on one side of the tank. But I'm not sure how best to photograph it then- is it cheating to place the real light source where the fictional one should be?
     
    We've finally reached the point where the majority of figures in any given campaign mission are painted, but there's still plenty to do. I've avoided a lot of the named film characters so far because they're a little more intimidating to paint, but I think I'm about ready to get around to them.

    It took me a while to figure out how to store all my figures. Here's a list of what I bought and how they fit in.
    https://us.battlefoam.com/ig-72-troop-foam-tray-bfl/
    I bought 2 of these at a 2" height for all the regular figures. There were 7 left over which I put into the 2" pluck tray further down. Wider figures like Gamorreans and Riot Troopers fit nicely into the top row.


     
    https://us.battlefoam.com/battle-foam-large-pluck-foam-tray-bfl/
    I bought one 2" and one 4" pluck tray to fit the irregular figures. I found after placing the rancor that he's about 2mm too high, so if I could do it again I'd probably get the 4.5" option instead. The first one holds everything over 2" tall: the 3 walkers, Rancor, Gaarkhan, Kanan, Bantha Rider, and Captain Terro.

    This one holds irregular figures that stand under 2 inches: Vader, Inquisitor, Maul, Lando, Nexus, Tank, Wampas, Ewebs, and Jabba. Plus some regular figures after the two troop trays filled up.

    It was a great mini to paint. Very nice model and also fun to paint something this big that wasn't an AT-ST.
    Got to try out green stuff a little bit for the first time which was more difficult than I thought.
    And just as with Jabba and Terro, wetblending is so much fun!
    Still trying to learn how to take proper pictures.. any helpful tips or pointers are much appreciated.
