The EDBAG HoTT campaign starts this week and I needed a camp for my Star War imperial army. After some dithering, I eventually decided on some glowing gems in a pit by some ruins guarded by stormtroopers. Basically a variation on the pirate loot theme I've done before.
I tried to mimic the effect of glowing gems with some washes. The effect looks better in person than in this picture. After some thought, I may use some future floor wax to turn the pit into a pool with them gems in it. Ruins are old GW Lord of the Rings pieces from the MayDay auction. Stormtroopers are 25mm WEG fellows. I will darken the blaster the guy on the left is holding.
Up next: A saxon warband is done thanks to a donation of bases from Terry for my mounted guys. I also have three trees done and a couple of houses almost finished for Songs of Arthur and Merlin. A copy of Dux Bellorum just arrived as well and, of course, the HoTT campaign kicks off Tuesday. With the canning season starting to taper off and garden slowing down, I hope to paint more. I also have a huge commission of 15mm cavalry to do.
