Star Wars Legion Commando Snipers

Hey all!

Well, another week, another group of Legion figures!

 This time, it is the sniper/spotter team from the Commandos boxed set.  I really do like these figures... both aliens, which is cool.  I also decided to do a little ghillie work with them, to mirror the Scout sniper I did earlier.  I DID keep them a bit more "modest" than that figure, however... they have half-cloaks of sorts to keep them hidden.

Their basic camo pattern is the same as the other rebels... what sets them apart is the ghillie cloaks.

Overall I'm pretty happy with them... got a few more figures to paint up.

A few shots of my Space Wolf terminators...

Hey all!

I had the camera and lights out, so thought I'd snap a few new shots of my Space Wolf terminators!

I love the lightning claw guy... one of my favorite minis.

And I do love how the basing and the wolf and the jewelers chain worked out!

More Stormtroopers for Legion...

Well, another unit of Stormtroopers, all painted up!

They are simple but annoying to paint.  White undercoat, black bits, and then lining with brown wash and some cleanup, and thats it.  But ugh, painting white sucks.  Like, for real.  

It reminds me of TIE fighters for Armada... you need a lot of them, and they suck to paint!

And here are the Stormtroopers with a bounty hunter!

Legion Scout Troopers painted...

Hey all!

Well, a bit more of my completed Legion forces!

I have a bunch of Rebels painted up, so I wanted to get some Imperials done... and you can't have a Stormtrooper legion without support!

So here are the Scout troopers, ready to advance quickly on the enemy!

I know I posted my Scout sniper before, with his ghillie suit, but here you can also see the saboteur and the rest of the crew.

Overall I'm happy with how they turned out... always loved Scout troopers!

Boba Fett for Legion!

Hi all!

Well, it's been quiet as HELL lately... work and life have been a bit overwhelming, and I've spent a lot of time on Red Dead Redemption lately, sooo...

But I have enjoyed painting up some Legion troops (well, not the Stormtroopers, but...) so I thought I would post!

Here is one of the few heroes I've painted... Boba Fett!  I didn't want to have him on that clear base, so I just matched up the height using rocks, and then pinned him to it.  I also left the flames off of the packback.

I did go a bit simple with his paintjob... I didn't go over the top on weathering or anything... because I think they look better when they are sharp.

Anyway... I'm happy with how he turned out... hopefully some more bounty hunters are on the way!  And in the meantime, I'll paint what I can:)
