Sorastro's Painting

Recommended Posts

Just finished it. Looks absolutely fantastic. As my AT-ST is the last mini I have left to pint this is coming just in time for when I get off work today. Again, thank you for the work you’ve put into these videos. They look absolutely amazing and are very inspiring for a rookie painter like me.

Thanks so much guys!  I'm just so happy to see this game taking off and so much creative work being done on the minis and terrain by the community on these forums :)

Simply stunning. 

 

Sorastro - quick question. How are you planning to prime your Rebel Speeder—Corax white?

Thank you!  I haven't made a final decision on that yet, but I'll most likely go with a grey prime with something like Mechanicus Standard Grey like I did with the AT-ST :)

The Duros is the standout one for me. Love the AtST pose too. 

Thanks Alan!  I strayed a bit from the usual blue tone for the Duros on a whim so I'm glad you like it. 

I appreciate your comment about the AT-ST pose too; it was such an important part of the creative process for me to get right, and FFG did such a wonderful job in making it so flexible that it just seemed like such a waste not to make the pose as dynamic and interesting, yet believable as possible. :)

I was wondering if you were going to do a video covering the barricades and measurement tools. I’ve started tackling them myself. Curious to see how everyone else is going to do them. 

Hi Patteous!  I won't be making a video for them, but would be happy to provide a short visual guide; I'll see what I can do :)

That would be awesome. Also. Will you be covering the terrain expansion pack that will be released?

Hey Sorastro,

Just wondering if you can post/have posted your alternative brown/desert color scheme for the rebel troopers?

I haven't been able to find a decent guide for them yet and not really confident in trying to work it out myself.

 

Cheers

Hey Sorastro, great job with the videos. First time painter and they have been crucial. I'm not that great but it definitely helps.

 

I was just thinking wondering how you would paint desert/mountain rebels? What colors would work best?

Hi Patteous!  My aim is to cover all of the Legion releases one way or another - some as videos and others as brief visual guides which I'll happily share here. :)

Thanks a lot migs!  I'm glad you're finding the videos helpful!  Regarding desert colours, I don't have a precise scheme to share with you without doing some experimentation, but if you have a look through my Imperial Assault playlist you'll find a few figures there that might cover the kind of look you're after (like Gideon perhaps, or Fenn maybe).  I hope this helps give you a few ideas anyway. :)

LOVE that AT-ST pose!!!

Thanks Ashram!  It's such a fun figure to work with. :)

@Sorastro what blue is that on the at-rt?

Hi Jabby!  I believe I mixed roughly equal measure of Flat Blue (VMC) and Dark Prussian Blue (VMC) for that. :)

Hello fellow painters! 

Now we have a painting sub forum  I thought I'd start a fresh thread where I can share pictures of my progress with the Legion minis.  Here's a link to the complete video tutorial playlist showing how I painted them.

Happy Painting!

@Sorastro, thank you so much for creating these video tutorials. I stumbled across your videos some time back and they have inspired me to paint up chucks of my Imperial Assault game as well as help me jump into Legion. I am sure I speak for many others that we all appreciate how you can take the daunting task of painting miniatures and break it down into manageable pieces. For me, at least, it has allowed me to enjoy (and improve) this part of the hobby.

Hey Sorastro, great to see a new thread for your excellent work in the painting sub-forum!

I have started to work on my Stormtroopers (using a combination of your techniques from your Legion video and IA videos).  My three sons helped with the first set of base colors (the weapons and armor) so it was a fun afternoon for us on Saturday.  (Even my six year old was able to help put a base coat on the weapons once I showed him how not to use too much paint and not to worry about mistakes as I could go back over them to fix, with most being on the gloves, which I had to go over anyway).  I will get a picture of them up when they get further along.
