I did some spots on Barriss Offe’s cloak, but they’re practically invisible in the final product. Sooner or later I’ll learn to be garish in the first pass so contrasts survive washes.
Like the 501st, I uses washes and chipping to keep the clones from being too white. I also take whatever excuse I can to apply contrast in the details, like the shoulder pads and below the chest plate.
What good is just a starter set? My daughter played the Shatterpoint demo with me, and when we decided to both participate in a four-week league at the local shop. I let my daughter pick the first box to expand into. She picked Grievous and his many arms.
Grievous as a model has lots of spindly bits. I’m not looking forward to putting him in foam. So far he’s been transported with some blue tack to the lid of a plastic box.
Kraken is the same sort of robot as Kalani from the starter. I did his filigree without metallics to try to give a little more to distinguish them, though it could use more.
I gave a few panels a lighter shade and stippled on some browns to give these B2s some visual depth.
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.
