Star Wars Legion

Well as I’m in work all day tomorrow I’ll post my Star Wars day update now and say may the force be with you all!

After watching The Mandalorian (again) I decided I wanted my Stormtroopers from the original Star Wars Legion set to look like the worn down dirty troopers featured in the show, I’m enjoying that style these days after all :grin:

So I found my self a reference pick and as ever did myself a test mini…

And the reference pick I went for…

Turned out well I think so I’m ready to finish the rest of the squad

Also whilst I’m here I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed The Mandalorian, whilst I thought the show was great and if anyone wants to chime in and talk about that I’d love to, for me Star Wars has always been about family and waiting week to week for each episode and making time to sit and watch it with my 2 boys has been an absolute highlight for me and I loved every minute of it. The Mandalorian’s slow, intense western theme song now has as much impact on me as John Williams glorious original score. Love it

Beautiful weathering.
Now I have know did the white stormtroopers influence your cool grimdark cds or did they drive you back to stormtroopers?

It was indeed good timing, I had done the Chaos Dwarfs and couldn’t decide what part of the CD army to paint next when I remembered the dirty stormtroopers I had just seen watching The Mandalorian earlier in the day, thought I’d try something similar with them :slightly_smiling_face: so it was a combo of Chaos Dwarfs and The Mandalorian for this scheme, I’m also basing the colours of the speeder bikes on Mando too

First Stormtrooper unit completed, attached are the reference pics for these guys. Carrying on The Mandalorian theme had to include some special weapon troopers and it was actually my 6year old who wanted to do the blue one (Commander Trooper) so he of course became the leader of the unit :grin:

More The Mandalorian inspired Star Wars, really enjoying painting the empire side of this set.

This time one of the bikes in the season 1 starter as set. Although I’m so used to the brown speeder bikes we all know from the forest moon of Endor I really like the lighter colour they went for with this…and not just because it’s easier to paint :wink:

And the becoming mandatory reference pic…

May the Force by with you :vulcan_salute:t2:
