And now the final squad from the Shatterpoint starter, General Anakin and his clone friends.
I’ve only cheated with object source lighting. This lightsaber effect is no different. Just a quick drybrush to bring blue into the highlights. It’s not especially realistic, but it’s simple and effective.
Once again I chose the bare-headed option for the secondaries, to more fully distinguish from the supports.
Some sparingly applied brown washes and sponge chipping white gives these guys a nicely weathered look.
Let’s do another dark side from the Shatterpoint starter, this time Asajj Ventress
Asajj Ventress, Sith Assassin
I copied off the studio model and used blue in the shadows of her skirt. I like how it turned out. I should probably use color like this a lot more than I do.
Kalani, Super Tactical Droid
Kalani came with two arm options. I chose this one over a holo display because I thought it looked cooler. Now, looking at the very similar Kraken sculpt in the Grievous box, I wish I had chosen the holo display to make them more distinct.
B1 Battle Droids
The battle droids come as a bunch to a base. I painted a couple of limbs a different color, as a field repair with parts from a different unit.
I’d call myself a casual fan of Star Wars. I dig (most of) the movies. I’ve seen some of the related shows. But I love me some skirmish games, so let’s do it.
Lord Maul seems to be more intact than the last time I saw him. I should probably watch Clone Wars sometime and maybe I’ll understand.
Mandalorian Super Commando (jumping)Mandalorian Super Commander (kneeling)
The starter set has too many Mandalorians in it. Each side has three models out of eight models (a Secondary plus a pair of Supporting) in Mandalorian armor. There are models from each unit type that are posed mid-jump.
So as sad as I am to lose Gar Saxon’s cool spiky helmet, I went with the bare head for the Secondaries. This should help them stand out from the Support on the tabletop.
