Imperial Assault rebels

I finished a few more Imperial Assault figures this week. First up are three rebel troopers. I fiddled the uniforms some to give them a bit of variety. I happened to have a Star Wars Legion figure in essentially the same pose and put him below (with a washer to even out the bases) for comparative purposes.

I also completed two rebel saboteurs Basing as per the owner's request and again a comparison with a similar Legion figure. 

Up next: Some Scooby Villains and then back to Star Wars.

Secrets of the Lost Tomb figures

A fellow asked me to paint the figures he got with the boardgame Secrets of the Lost Tomb. There were 15 plastics figures in the set and they are pretty typical 1930s pulp figures.

They are fairly thin sculpts with soft details. I painted them up to match the character cards.

The sculpts are a mixed bag. Some are quite nice, some are a bit off in their pose or proportions. For game tokens, they are pretty cool.

I picked a couple of 28mm Pulp Figures off my shelf to compare. The game tokens are a bit shorter than 28s and thinner. Akin to 1970s 25mm, I'd say.

They are a bit bigger than 1/72s but hav proportions that match them. Overall, an interesting diversion.

Up next: More Star Wars, I think.

Star Wars and Cobra

I'm continuing to work my way through a bunch of Star Wars Imperial Assault figures. 

Today I have three, based as per the owner's request. Lando is nice and painted as per the movie stills. Ben is also fairly dynamic. Luke is so-so.

I happened to have a Luke from Star Wars: Legions to illustrate the scale differences between the two games. The Legions figure is on the left below while the Imperial Assault figure is on the right. I used a washer to adjust for the thinner Imperial Assault bases.

I also finished a figure from Hasslefree miniatures as the Baroness. I was short a leader figure for my Cobra army and she was one the few characters I could remember from the cartoon beyond Destro and Cobra Commander.

I'm going to call that army finished. There are enough figures to skirmish with and buying anything more (e.g., HISS tank) is stupid expensive.

Up next Some board gaming figures and more Star Wars.
