Star Wars Legion

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:

I’m so happy my son asked me to get the Star Wars Legion stuff down from the attic again, my 2 sons are painting up the Rebels half of the original box and I’m doing the Empire, as seen above influenced by The Mandalorian, managed to finish off the second unit of 7 to add my first painted minis to the BATG

Boba Fett introduces an interesting question, as I’m loosely basing a lot of this from The Mandalorian series do I go black cloth details on Fett and cleaner armour, or as it’s the original do I stick with the grey cloth and battered armour :thinking:

Ghrask, master of white paint. An uncanny ability some consider to be… unnatural.

Wipe out the grey… All of them.

I have only thunderous applause for your efforts here.

You are most kind, I’m looking forward to finishing these guys off…I’ve also got some Death Troopers and an AT-ST to paint up, no white though I have no idea what to do :cd1991gif:

More progress on the lingering force of the Empire after the Emperor’s downfall, this time the Dewback rider has been started

I was ready to go fill on step by step with this one…but I completely forgot and now it’s done :man_shrugging:t2: :cd1991gif:

It was a bit of am experiment to say the least so I was happy with where it got to in the end, I think that why the step by steps got away from me :grin:

Had an idea for the Death Troopers, wanted to create my own squad akin to the Inferno Squad.

Wanted to go for Red Skulls, I may also do a black AT-ST with a red skull motif on the front

Wanted these guys, as the elites, to be a lot cleaner so they really stand out against the other beaten and battered Stormtroopers

Work goes on with the Death Troopers but I couldn’t resist any longer, had to make a start on the Bounty Hunter

Tried a little free hand too…when I say little :hot_face: took me a bit

Now I’ve added shades and highlights with weathering to the green and yellow armour
