I’m tempted to copy this scheme for my own veterans.  I love the idea of Hoth troopers but on both the radar laser canon and the tauntauns I’ve found them a pain in the neck to paint...

So, it's Skragg Brown for the brown bits, 4:1 White:Screaming Skull for the cloth white bits. Dead White (vallejo game color) for the leather/plastic bits

Brown is washed in agrax earthshade

White is washed in 5:3 Medium:Nuln Oil

The blue guns for the troopers were Kantor blue washed with drakkenhof nightshade

 

Highlights:

Brown: Mix XV-88 into the skragg brown for increasing highlights

White Cloth: Add more white into your White/Screaming skull mix

White Plastic and Leather: Highlight with White and Dead White.

The clones look fantastic. How did you get the shading right? I've tried a few different methods on storms, and I'm tempted to give contrast paint a go, but I've always struggled getting the shading right on white armor.

A 50/50 mix of lahmian medium and nuln oil works a treat (after MANY imperial assault stormie paints)

It's the shade noted above for the shell and black contrast paint for the bodysuit.

That's a lot of clones! They look great. Am I right in thinking that they're more posable than previous releases?

Sort of.  The peg and slot for the arms and head is a generic cylinder.  SO I mixed a lot of the basic parts up and some of them I posed by soaking in hot water then shaping.  5 of them maybe are looking up, and little things like that.  I think I have two that look alike but I really did try to make each one unique.

Cpl. Jack there in the middle is looking backwards.  He needs to be...corrected.

Captain Jack in the middle is relaying his orders to the guys behind him because it's easier to hear when the speaker is facing you.
