Hi all! Here is where I will post my paint jobs. Did a little painting with 1/72 WWI minis before getting into Legion, but haven't really painted seriously before getting the Clone Wars core set in January. C & C welcome as I hope to keep improving.

 

Here's my Saber Tank. The one thing I know I could do better was completely forgetting to wash the recesses before weathering it. I tried to go back and do some of it but I didn't like how it looked over the dry brushing. Still, I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.

Also, how do I make these imgur links appear as images? Got it!

I want to use the Barc speeder models to put a few guys sitting on the sides. I want to do it with small magnets so I can remove them at will.

"Cut off and for all we knew abandoned by our superiors, our only hope was Aayla Secura, our Jedi commander. Without her iron will, none of us would have come out of that mess with our sanity, or our lives. When her death came, I hope it was quick. She earned that much."

The end of the word hasn't sent me home from work yet, but it has rearranged my schedule a ton. Here's my finished project of the 21st Nova Corps (Phase IIs and modded Snowtroopers). I'm no pro, for sure, but for 3 months experience painting I'm pretty pleased with the result!

With both Cody and Bacara from Mel Miniatures, I've struggled to get a good look from my paints, I didn't have this issue as much with Aayla from Skull Forge Studios. Does anyone have any experience with Mel?

And I know, Aayla fought with the 327th Star Corps, but I think she fits in with the 21st.

Great Idea and well made! It makes your tank more "alive"

On your picts I noticed the clone from the tank kit for not have feet. It is a shame it was design this way. I remember that one of my very first model was a 1/35 Sherman (m4a1) from tamya. The commandeur was similarly settled but it was possible to remove it to use it beside the tank because of the two feet he got.

Your painting and weathering are both well done as well.

Can you explain the differences between Mel and skull forge studio? Is the plastic different? Or printing quality?
