Pictures don't do these miniatures justice!

Recommended Posts

I just purchased Imperial Assault and the Boba Fett figure pack yesterday and all I can say is “WOW”!!! Pictures truly do not do these miniatures justice. Once I had the miniatures in hand and saw all the detail and love put in to them I was left speechless. You just can’t capture all that in a picture. You have to see it firsthand. Thank you Fantasy Flight for all your hard work you put in to this game. I look forward to getting more figure packs and expansions and hope to get in to painting them. I also have to give a shout out to Sorastro's Painting  videos for inspiring me to make the leap into this game. It was him that gave me the passion to get into painting these miniatures.

1. I know FFG did a great job with the figures here. WotC never had any Boba's that looked that good.

2. Sorastro's painting is amazing. However, I don't have the money or skill for good paints; would extra fine tip sharpies work? They look great with the Armada fighters.

My opinion is to get cheap paints at Walmart and cut them with acrylic floor polish before using markers.  As far as skill goes, if you can cut in with a marker I'd imagine you can do a decent job with a really fine tip paintbrush.

The Citadel paints that Sorastro recommends are about $4.25 per pot, though hobby stores may have them discounted. Vallejo and Army Painter pots are a bit less. Considering that you can start with just some basic colors for most of the Imperials that's not so bad, really. Any paint is better than none, but cheap paints can be frustrating. I don't want a bad experience to turn you off of the hobby.

 

Whatever paints you end up buying, make sure you get something that can be thinned and cleaned up with water. Anything that requires actual paint thinner is a little more difficult to work with. Welcome to the game!

Thanks I have just started a stormtrooper, but where can I find citadel paints SFC Snuffy?

Well, I'm not sure where you are in the world, Felswrath, but any gaming/hobby store that carries Games Workshop games & models will probably also have their paints. If you go to a Games Workshop Hobby Center (their stand-alone brick & mortar stores) you'll find their whole line of painting & hobby products, but you'll pay full price for them. Their salespeople are pushy, too.

If gaming-related stores are in short supply in your area, look for a store that carries trains and model cars; they'll have a nice selection of paints, brushes, & assorted ephemera. If you're having trouble matching colors, look here or here for assistance. Almost all of the major hobby companies let you order from their websites, as well, though you'll have to pay shipping. If there aren't any resources in your area, though, that may be an option.

Thanks for the help again SFC Snuffy. However, I have been doing a good (not Sorastro level, but good) job with (and I know it's probobly a swear word around these parts) Testors's model paints. But there is a Games Workshop about a half hour away from me so I'll think about it.

Testors paint are good as well and have been used by scale modelers for years. Long before there was citadel paints in fact. Citadel paints are brighter and more cartoony than testors model master line. One of the main reasons to use citadel paints is that it is available in most Friendly Local game stores (in the USA). Personally I prefer Vallejo and Tamiya paints because I like water wash up. But I have a number of citadel paints too. It's all a matter of finding tools you like and using the same tools to get better. I primed all my Stormtroopers wed. Hope to get to painting them sometime soon. Keep up the good work and Pics or it didn't happen!

Here is the Citadel paints list from Sorastro's Painting videos . It should be in the same order as the Vallejo paints.

1:43 - Prep 'n' Spray

2:44 - Base Color

Products used:

-Citadel paints: Mechanicus grey, White Scar, Rhinox Hide, Abaddon Black, Ryza rust, Mephiston Red, Nuln Oil, 'Ardcoat gloss varnish.

Specific Rosemary and Co. brushes I tend to use the most that could be a good basis for your first set of brushes (select "short handle"):

-Series 56 flat brushes for dry brushing, size 3 for smaller areas, and size 6 for large:

Star Wars Imperial Assault Painting Guide Ep.5 Imperial Officer

0:41 - Steps Overview

1:12 - Prep 'n' Spray

1:38 - Base Color

3:54 - Dark Wash

5:27 - Highlight

10:51 - Finishing Touches

 

For a simpler grey look (that requires fewer paints!) you could try the following color scheme:

 

1) Base with Mechanicus Standard Grey.

2) Wash with Nuln Oil.

3) Highlight with Eshin Grey (this will initially look virtually identical to the Mechanicus Standard Grey), but then add some White Scar to the Eshin Grey to produce the next couple of lighter tones. (We use the Eshin Grey rather than the Mechanicus Standard Grey as it's a "layer" paint so better for building up semi-translucent layers.)

 

We can also skip the glaze step.

 

Happy painting!

*It appears that the Baharroth Blue can be a little hard to find as not all shops stock it. However, Citadel's Skink Blue (from their Dry range) is exactly the same color; you just need to thin it down with some water and give it a good mix (thanks Miikka Sohlman for that tip!) You could also mix a close-enough color using something like Lothern Blue or Temple Guard Blue mixed with a little white.

Thanks for listing from the videos. The reason is that the list that I have from this link. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1lRjMVxiA6gawL-b4GmDAG1-6xKTHwmcnWDv7-t8gUUA/edit?usp=sharingYou have listed in the nexu vallejo beige (917) What does that replace? I apprecate the conversion because vallejo is cheaper than buying citadel. It would be easier if the list was this citadel paint = this vallejo paint.

This is for the Citadel Tyrant Skull but keep in mind that these are approximants. Each company of paints will not be an exact match for the other due to deferent formulations. If I could get citadel in the USA where I live for a reasonable price I would probably go with them since I know that’s what Sorastro used and I know the colors look great. As for a side by side conversion I will try to make one when I get time.

Thank you for doing that list. I do realize that the colors will be close and not exact. I like getting my money's worth. 4.25 at my local game store is a lot for 12ml pot of paint. The Vallejo and reaper dropper bottles at miniature market are 2.45 and 2.47. Which is a considerable savings since I will be ordering more colors. I am looking to paint them look as close to the movies and their cards. Not looking for them to be perfect.

This is a side by side conversion. *Note:  Vallejo does not have an equivalent for Citadel’s Necron Compound and the equivalent for Citadel’s Runefang Steel is Vallejo’s Silver (997). So in the places with an (*) I replaced the colors to get the contrast when you dry brush.
