First-time painting results

Recommended Posts

Imperial assault is amazing; a better descent with star wars theme. Yay!
I also like me some x-wing and each time the ships are on the table I LOVE the fact that they are painted. So what to do with those bland unpainted imperial assault mini's...
Enter sorastro's painting guide on youtube

.

 

After seeing that I thought to myself "I think I can actually pull this off". 

Behold my first three creations:

Okay, many other painted stormies put mine to shame, but man I'm proud. They look so much better than the unpainted plastics! On top of that I found I really do enjoy painting these figures. I have no idea when my whole set is done, and yeah, I had to invest some money into paints and brushes, but it's exciting that I found this new hobby. And playing the game is going to be so much better from now on!

Will show more images when I have painted the bases, sprayed varnish and put some ardcoat on their tiny little stormtrooper heads.

 

Credits to Sorastro!

Any comments, burns, suggestions or questions are welcome.

I agree. Sorastro's guides have been very helpful so far. I just wish I had a chance to see them before finishing my Imperial figures.  :(  But it looks like you were able to put his tips to good use. I would be proud to play with figures like that, too. Nicely done!

You did a great job for a first try.  I've painted for a year or two on and off as I've played different games and mine look only marginally better.  Great job!  You should be proud!

Job well done sir. I saw the videos and I started working on my probe droids since they seem to be the easiest one to do... Never thought I would paint minis but so far I'm enjoying it.

Those looks awesome! Great job! 

I'm getting anxious to start painting my own set next week. Will need to find a good way of storing the painted minis that will still fit the box. 

 

and those videos are great, kudos to that guy

You know, having had a look at your first time results and the tutorial on YouTube I'm going to give a first time go as well.  Will have to wait until next month to buy the materials (assuming the first wave expansions aren't out then, or I'll get them first).

 

I hope mine come out half as good as yours do!

Cool to see that people get inspired by this post as I was by others. Imperial assault really seems to stir peoples creativity.

Those probe droids look really cool JediJF! I started on those today actually. Nice to do something different from the stormtroopers. :-)

Those stormtroopers look nice to me! I wouldn't have mind if mine were a little bit cleaner like yours...
As an update I can tell I made good progress: finished 2 groups of stormies (only 1 more to go for the last trio) and did my probe droids, including applying a coat of laquer. Very happy with the result!

Nice work guys!  I wish I had seen this post before I painted my stormies.  They turned out good but I really like the gritty look that the black wash gives them.  starwarsimperialassault008_zps7c711292.j

What brush size/technique you use to get all that detail on the helmet? Looks great

Thanks!  I think it was a Red Sable brush size 2 from Atlas Brush co.  I also use a magnifier and have really good lighting.
