Star Wars good guys

I am almost done this Star Wars commission (six figures left) and today I'm showing off the good guys. These were some nice sculpts with lots of raised detail and animated poses.

The wookie has come out a bit blonder in the picture than in real life. And I see I need to tidy the edges of the bases.

I fiddled with the light sabre a couple of times (including a disastrous attempt using metallic paint). In the end, I went with white base, electric blue paint and a gloss sealer. I also did some a few highlights showing the light as reflected.

Up next: It is club night this week and I hope to bring a vikings game out. I also have a half-dozen creatures left on the Star Wars commission. Then I'm not sure what to paint. Maybe some buildings?

Nice work. I just my own basic set, and we both did the red glaze on Darth Vader. How do you like these models compared the older ones that you have?

I have a bunch of West End Games 25mm models from the 1980s. These new sculpts are huge by comparison! Poses and sculpting are better in the new ones. Interesting, all of the WEG stormtroopers are lefties while these sculpts have right-handed stormtroopers. Who is non-canonical?

Wow, I never noticed. I'll have to pay better attention.

Was looking at my WEG guys and most are lefties but some are right handed (wonder if there was a base pack of lefties and then right handers as an expansion?).
