It took me a forever to finally finish the bikes, as i play mostly Rebels (cause most of my friends always want to go for Empire). Core box squad (one with back shooting squad leader ofc) i actually primed shortly after the game came out, then i picked a box of bikes on Cyber monday last year... well they're finished now. Snowtrooper was first of the batch, will be painting rest of 'em next. Then i still got to 1.4. FD Laser Cannon -unit to paint, until Jyn & Pathfinders actually come available!

A super fine brush which you only use for eyes so it doesn't lose its point. I was really worries about the eyes but my first few attempts have come out nicely. It is a little hard to avoid slight cross eyes though.

How do some people do the whites of their eyes? It's crazy.

I was very afraid of painting eyes myself back then too, but it’s really not that hard in the end (started with Imperial Assault minis when i started painting and never even tried to paint eyes on ’em). I tend to paint eyes while the face is still just in base paint phase. Trial and error (you can always fix mess with base color), good tip on the brush (no need for super duper fine brushes for me, just has to have a good TIP) i paint mostly everything with same size 1-2 size brushes (Jyn, the whole mini, i’ve done with Army Painter - Wargamer: Regiment brush) the tip is everything with the eyes! Have to say that most of minis eyes’ look even this ”good”.

Just try to get small streak of black first, then a small dash of white and then a dab of black innit in the middle. Enough practise, patience and steady position (try to nod into something to keep your hand as stable as possible) and it’s all good for tabletop, i know i’ll never be good enough painter to complete or anything. I’ve just managed to get ’em pretty good looking time to time.

Made myself more mess with superfine brush than normal 1 or 2 sized brush, as long as the tip is on point and i’ve noticed to get better results!

I started by just with putting some darker wash on the eye sockets, so it would give even somekind of illusion of eyes. Now though will try my best to make eyes look as good i can every time to get practise.

Did a really fast paintjob on this one, nothing fancy here. After it was sitting painted only metallic for three months, just had to make it finished so went on the heavy camo direction to match it on my Endor theme.

Definitely the best turret I’ve seen
