Showcase: Star Wars Imperial Assault Rebel Troopers and Characters

Today I got a bunch of rebel scum for you. Saska Teft, a brilliant engineer (accrording to her character card), vengeful guerrilla Biv Bodhrik and six rebel troopers.

Showcase: Star Wars Imperial Assault Tusken Raiders

Now here's a particular favourite of mine: Tusken Raiders, a.k.a. Sandpeople. They ride in single pose to hide their numbers, you know.

Anyway, I love the Sandpeople. They are such a great 'low-tier' danger at the beginning of A New Hope and let us know that this universe is msysterious, dangerous and how technology is a very basic and common thing to use, even for 'less civilized' folks. They also are such a great design. You gotta love them. 

The models of course suffer from being mono-pose, but there is a lot of movement in them. Hope you like my paintjob!

Showcase: Star Wars Imperial Assault Rebel Saboteurs

Now that we either still rush from one holiday event to the next or just lie around, process food and play with our toys let's take a little bit and have a look at these peculiar fellows.

Showcase: Star Wars Imperial Assault Group Shot!

A nice mix of troops there I think. Lots of evil Empire fellas, some feral beasties and our three heroes fighting them off.

Showcase: Star Wars Imperial Assault Royal Guard

Oh, here's a bunch more Imperials. Top tier too: It's the Imperial Royal Guard with a Royal Guard Champion.

Especially amongst all the other rather monochromatic colours the Empire uses these guys stand out really well. Cool dudes whom we never saw doing all that much, but I think that makes them all the more effective.

Showcase: Star Wars Imperial Assault Imperial Troops

Today I'm showing you some Imperial troops for the Imperial Assault boardgame. Three officers, two Scout troopers with heavy weapons, three Imperial Probe Droids and a IG-88 assassin droid. The latter especially is a bit of a more exotic sight, but a very fun model nonetheless. And kind of creepy, not the least due to his size. 

Painting Stormtroopers is always a bit of a challange to get them "right". I also like those models of the Probes a lot. Proper dark and scary.

By the way, if you ask yourself why some of the models got red base rims - that's for gameplay reasons. Mostly they depict elite versions of each troop type. The models are 28mm scale. 

Of course today is the big start of Star Wars: Episode 7. A day to rejoyce. I'm fairly certain they'll get it right this time, but let me know about your opinions on the film  in the comments section!

Hope you like the minis, see you soon!

Showcase: Star Wars Imperial Assault Nexu

Yay, it's two Nexu (at least I think they're pluralized like that. Like sheep, right?). Don't remember them from the films? I don't blame you.

Showcase: Star Wars Imperial Assault Characters

Star Wars! For no particular reason the demand in nice paintjobs on Star Wars minis has gone up quite a bit over the past years. ;-) Today I'm starting with Han Solo, Chewbacca and of course Luke Skywalker. Hope you like them!

 I posted a batch of figures I painted for a set of Imperial Assault before, and over the next days I will post more!

Another character for one of the Brotherhood warbands I'm working on. It's Piccina, the girl with the huge crossbow.

Showcase: Chaplain Xavier

Hey, I painted a Space Marine again! This of course is chaplain Xavier. Fun mini, I never painted the chap before.
