Galactic Empire Starter Force

My initial force for Star Wars Legion, 500 points of Galactic Empire, is ready to rock!

Figures painted using a slightly simplified version of the methods described by the excellent YouTuber Sorastro.

Next up will be either a similar sized Rebel force, or perhaps some additions to this force such as Vader, a squad of 74-Z speeder bikes, a scout sniper team or an AT-ST? All primed and ready to go.

Mini Mos Eisley

These buildings are ready to use straight from the box. However I do intend to jazz them up a bit with some weathering, foliage and so on. But they’ll do for now whilst I focus on getting figures painted.

They’re from the “Battlefield in a Box” range, more specifically Galactic Warzones, and are often available from bigger retailers like Firestorm Games or Goblin Gaming, etc. There’s also a huge range of stuff available via Etsy but some can be very expensive. I got these buildings at a bargain price.

Star Wars Terrain

This interestingly shaped piece of cardboard packaging was lurking in my recycling so, along with a few bits of leftover tank kits, I made it in to a sort of power generator ‘thingy’. 

The structure is Americana Honey Brown, then Tan followed by Bleached Sand. The base is Americana Honey Brown, VMC Tan Yellow, VMC Dark Sand, Foundry Boneyard light. Then a selection of tufts and clump foliage from Gamers Grass, Warlord and Woodland Scenics.

Next are a few resin items from TT Combat.

The recipe here was simply VMC Stone Grey and Foundry Conker Brown washed with GW Agrax Earthshade. Then highlights of the base colours followed by GW Mephiston Red.

I have a few more resin items on the go including some buildings that are rather “Mos Eisley” in style.

First Star Wars Figures

A quick post to show the first of my Stormtroopers for Star Wars Legion.

The recipe is basically a simplified version of the truly excellent tutorial by Sorastro, you can find it here. Plenty more figures to follow.

Chum David Clark has organised a Bristol based campaign/league (thanks mate!) which will kick off in September so we’ve all got plenty of time to get our forces battle ready.
