Fourtytwo you ever thought about streaming your painting? Even just some commentary while you paint is inciteful to beginners like myself.

I second this. I would love to watch you paint. 

 

 

...this sounds creepy doesn't it?

 

First of all - many thanks, I really appreciate this. To answer your questions: No, I don't have an instagram account, I use a german tabletop and miniatures gaming forum as my image host for everything miniatures gaming-related. I also don't do videos or streams, since I don't have the equipment and experience producing these in the quality required for anything miniatures-painting-related, and most of all, it takes time setting up, post-producing etc., time I rather like to spend painting and gaming. It's a thing... :lol: I know, disappointing, isn't it?

To alleviate the disappointment at least a little bit, here's what I finished painting since I last posted a painted mini here:

Hey, didn't I already paint these? That's right, but I revisited both Loku and Ko-Tun to get them on par with my other figures I've done since Ahsoka, so I added a few highlights and glints and improved the skin where needed. What's more, both finally get their own picture-presentation like all the other figures I've done so far:

I also outright stole two neat ideas by @Agis and created my own Rex and Anakin. I hope you don't mind, Agis, plus I naturally always credit you wherever I post these. I modified the upper arms for Rex and sculpted his clonetrooper-armour vambraces, plus I based his colour scheme on his character design in the episode 'A Fool's Hope' just before the series finale of Star Wars REBELS.

I also modified Davith to make him into Anakin as he could have looked in REBELS had he not fallen to the dark side and became Darth Vader. I sculpted a bit of hair falling over the right side of his brow. I also decided to paint his armour similar to the elements of armour on Ahsoka in REBELS - bright but worn and beaten.

I know what you mean about the heat, we had our first rain in three months here in Sweden and I think you Germans have sent some firefighters to help us with all our bushfires. (So thanks for that)

I absolutely love all your models and Leia is so excellent I don't even know which words to use to describe it. Let's just settle for excellent.

Do you, for the most part, tend to do layer highlights or blending highlights? Specifically I'm looking at your Ahsoka model. I can't tell if the cloth on her is blended or layered.

Like most people on here, your stuff looks amazing.

Since I watched the REBELS series finale tuesday last week, I'm busy sculpting Ahsoka as she appeared in the epilogue, just for the fun of it. This takes time, since I'm sculpting in layers onto the re-posed mini of her we got for Imperial Assault. I still got a bit of sculpting to do as well as scratch-building her staff, but the figure is taking shape and looking good so far:

How's this coming along?

It's still a WIP, since the new wave has priority now, and I already have a playable Ahsoka painted. I'm not idle, though, and have finished painting Ezra Bridger today:

I've also started painting Sabine and have finished her face today. I'll post a WIP-image of her figure soon - it's all coming together nicely. :)

Your work is fantastic, thanks for sharing.

When you repainted Leia, did you strip the previous paint job and if so, how did you go about that? I've found stripping metal easy enough but not so good with the plastic/pvc!

I used a product called Sterillium, which is a hand-desinfectant available here in Germany. I submerged the figure in this stuff overnight, and the next morning the colour came off by itself. I used an old toothbrush to remove a few remaining bits of colour and primer in the cracks of the figure.
