hey Sorastro, considering all the hard work you do for the community and the added promotion it does for the game, does FFG send you free imperial assault stuff?

I feel like they should be!  and if they aren't you should send them a request. The worst they can say is no.  

but this thread used to be sticky before the painted forums were removed.  So it means they definitely appreciate you!

I'm fairly certain that they don't but if you really think he should be rewarded for all of his efforts on our behalf, there is always the patreon you could contribute to. :)

Well, I have my paints for the first batch of minis I'm going to paint. I plan to start with the Stormtroopers, followed by some combination of the E-Web Engineers, Heavy Stormtroopers, and Kayn Somos. I can get a lot of mileage from Mechanicus Standard Grey, Scar White, Leadbelcher, Runefang Steel, Nuln Oil, and 'Ardcoat before getting into other colors.

 

I still need to get the spray primer and varnish, and a desk to do it all on. I plan to get all that tomorrow.

I felt a great disturbance in my wallet as if hundreds of dollars suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced. (please excuse my dirty table.)

 

 

 

That's good. You have taken your first step into a larger world.   :) 

 

 

I agree!  Sorastro's painting videos took me from a hesitant 'I'd love to paint but ehhh I don't know how' to having all of my Imperial Assault, Twin Shadow, and now starting on my Descent figures painted.  FFG would only benefit from helping fund Sorastro in his videos, whether it be paint or figures, maybe even some before they launch to the rest of the world to hype up the anticipation!

Boy, those mold lines sure are something once these things are primed. I worked for like 2 hours and they are still there!

They are a huge pain. And for some reason FFG plastic mold lines are much more resilient than say, Games Workshop plastic...

i don't use sorastro's tips to paint my miniatures. i have my own style of painting.  it doesn't mean i don't appreciate what he does or admire his work though because i do :)

So Sorastro, Boba Fett is available in the UK now (boardgameguru etc). As it went on sale today I demand a tutorial video in the next thirty minutes.  I don't think I'm being too unreasonable. :P

Whaat!? I didn't realize it was out yet... *Checksboardgameguru* Hmm they say they're expecting stock tomorrow. *Placespreorder*.  K done.  I'm half-way through shooting Diala Passil so I'll have to finish her first, but I think it's a no-brainer that I'm going to have to paint Boba Fett next :)

Sorastro you know the way into our hearts. I've been practically dreaming of the Boba Fett video since he was announced. I'm getting better at painting but I don't trust myself enough yet. I want Fett to be perfect.

I'll be honest, didn't expect you to check until tomorrow when it was in stock! I hope you've enjoyed/enjoying your holiday!

Ooh, can't wait for Boba Fett. I played the first Twin Shadows campaign mission on Tuesday and Boba Fett completely obliterated the rebels and I won Boba Fett as an ally.  Now I only had the punchboard token but now I just have to buy the real figure.

 

I had the Nexus lined up for painting but I had to paint Kayn Somos first as he'll probably make an appearance in the mini campaign. And I probably paint the heavy troopers too since I'm more likely to use them than Nexus in the campaign (I'm playing the Military Might deck). Shame that painting black and white is kinda boring (though highlighting good white is surprisingly hard) after painting more colorful figures.

After finishing the Trandos, Nexu and Jyn I'm looking forward to something simple. Hello IG-88!

I've been pondering future episodes.

Looking at the figures left from wave 1 and new in 2 I think there are some efficient ways to get through some of it.

I feel like there is a 3 minute "quicky with Sorastro" that covers the minor changes needed for the new Stormtroopers (both the heavies and Samos"

Maybe something similar for the different attachments for General Weiss.

I feel like Han and the Rebel Troopers are very similar. Same with Luke and Sand peeps...

I'm just thinking out loud... In text... And all of that after Fett of course. Probably other heroes too.

I'm probably going to give IG-gy a treatment very similar to what Sorastro did for the probe droids. Keep it simple while still getting what should be a good result.

The video for iggy seemed easy enough.

Yep I'm back and had a great time thanks. Thanks for the tip RE Boardgameguru; I've not bought from them before but everything's been dispatched :)

The shipping tends to be quite high, but if you are making big orders to take advantage of the discounts it pays for itself.

I'm making some decent progress I think, Ive got all 9 Stormtroopers up to the wash with Nuln Oil step and will start on the white layering tonight. I will have to say I hate Green Stuff already, I got a clump in my hair and Vaseline in my eye. It was not one of my best moments.

I'm not even going to ask...I know my partner hates stuff in her eye or hair, oh, wrong forum...
