Testor's dullcoat to the model then gloss varnish to the appropriate places.

Same as sorastro does for the stormtrooper armour.

It's not painted on if that's what you mean haha.

That was my question :)

It looks quite good regardless.

Just finished with my T-47, and thanks to your sage guidance I couldn't be happier with how it turned out! I love your channel, Soroastro - you're truly the Bob Ross of miniatures.

Wow - that's really stunning work mate!  You've got a lovely amount of weathering, good level of contrast, and the windows really turned out fantastic!  Thanks so much for sharing :)

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.

Here are some pics of the minis I've covered so far...

 

 

 

Thank you for the videos you've put out so far! Can you say when your video for the snowtroopers, Leia, and Fleet Troopers will be post? I don't want to paint mine until I watch your tutorial first.

Hi Nick!  That, sir, is a very fair question!  I prepared a PDF guide for the Fleet Troopers a couple of weeks ago which I'll release as soon as it gets approved (and I will of course link it here).  I've fallen a bit behind with the other stuff as I've been busy preparing for a new album release, but I'm planning to produce the Leia video next week, and a PDF for the Snow Troopers later on in the month :)

Sounds great! Thank you so much!

I noted in one of your videos that you use Vallejo Matt Varnish to fill gaps instead of a Vallejo Plastic Putty. I almost like green stuff over the putty for detail work. Can you elaborate on your experiences? Thanks in advance.

Hi Bohemian73!  I generally use Green Stuff for larger gaps, and the Vallejo Matt Varnish for smaller ones.  I haven't actually tried Vallejo's Plastic Putty yet so can't comment on that :)

I remember in one of your videos you mentioned what brushes you use, but I cannot remember which vid & what brushes 

Hi there!  I list the brushes used in the video description of each video, but I usually use a Rosemary & Co. Series 33 Size 2 :)

Hey Sorastro,

PDF guides are interesting - where can I find these to review? Have they been released for all of the units you'e made videos for?

Hi Copes!  I usually produce PDF guides for miniatures that I won't be covering as a video, simply as a way of covering more figures than I could cover in video form.  I usually produce three such PDF guides per month for games like IA, Descent, and Gloomhaven, and publish them for my patrons on Patreon who fund their production.  However, I will be making an exception with the Legion PDF guides by sharing them freely - most likely on my website (Sorastro.com) and I'll also provide a link here on the forum.  :)

Hey Gun4hire!  It sounds like the using clear acrylic bases would be the best solution.  You'd have to do some research and see what's out there, and also check to see if using third-party bases would affect eligibility for competitive play (if that's of any concern). :)
