Star Wars Characters

I completed a couple of bases last night for my daughter's Star Wars HoTT armies. I have the bulk of the line troops for each side done. So I'm left with characters and support troops.

First up are our band of heroes from Episode IV. Not bad sculpts given they are 25-year-old figures and modest paint jobs. I could not find a Leia with danish hair so she has her hair down. These guys are likely warband in HoTT: move fast in bad terrain but not really about endurance.

I also have a solo Luke from Episode V (note he still has his original hand). A hero? More likely a blade as he has completed not his training, mmmhh?

We have Vader. Either a general blade or a hero. Boy, getting decent highlights out of a black-clad figure is a hassle unless you want to drybrush grey. A dithered with various blue-black mixes with mixed results. And below we have the Emperor (Hero general? Magician general?) with a guard who had some sort of seriously odd colour shift (he is not that red!).

Up next: Well, there are more SW figures to do but I think I will wait a bit. I have enough to run a game. But tomorrow is the club and then MayDay is this weekend. And a bunch of HYW English are primered and running around the desk screaming "my eyes! my eyes!" As if I'm going to paint eyes. Whiners.

Early Luke and gang must be sneakers?

Hmmm. Now that is a good idea. I was thinking ewoks and jawas as lurkers. But sneakers is a great idea.

Got a Deathstar (Stronghold) kicking around?

Bob Barnetson said...

Hmmm. Good question. I might have a micro machine death star somewhere. My daughter had it last in a toy box--not sure I have seen it in a couple of years though.
