Star Wars Legion painting and extra bling!

Recommended Posts

Painted up a few more buildings and have been playing in the sand pit again! Once again, buildings from Imperial Terrain and all the scatter scenery and other eye candy from Combatzone scenery, miniatures from the depth of my figure case. That land speeder is my first 3D print btw!

Buildings are prints, all the scatter scenery is hand sculpted and cast, a lot of it is also from our Imperial Assault range

I have the STL files now too, it was surprising to see a few things not on the site OldschoolEmpire, going to enjoy printing them for a little variety, stay tuned for another session in the sandpit sometime soon :P

 

Buildings are airbrushed, the buildings are given a few coats of textured spray first, it does a good job of hiding all the evils of 3d printing and happens to work well on this sort of stuff. If you take a look at the unofficial legion terrain site on facebook I bobbed a quick guide on there last week, I'll follow it up with a little more detail once I get round to painting some more buildings :)

I'll take a look at the site. I've been busy printing and need to start getting my stuff painted up, I have an airbrush, that I've usually used for base coats/ priming miniatures, but I'm pretty excited to finally get to use it on some terrain.

Another technique for hiding imperfections in a 3D print, is to brush on a coat of watered down Wall Filler/Spackle/Joint Compound. It goes on easy and when dry really gives that concrete look and can be painted in a variety of ways. This technique works well on foam too to achieve either a stone or concrete look.

Droid attack on a rebel weapons cache! Couple more Imperial Terrain buildings finished. Added a little more texture to these (just decorators filler applied with a stiff brush). Lighter than the previous buildings for a little variation and a little more rough around the edges as these hail from the more seedier quarter!
