Here are the six rebel heroes for Imperial Assault. They each have a distinctive flavour, and were quite fun to paint.
|Imperial Assault heroes|
Jyn Odan is the agile smuggler. She's wearing this season's trendy orange jacket with matching gloves and bold white armour plates that scream, "I always shoot first!". I used blue to highlight her hair. I liked the stripes on her jodhpurs. I think she wound up a little more Indian than Japanese, but is clearly not Caucasian.
Gaarkhan is the Wookie, who expresses himself (herself? who knows) with a big axe. I like how the face turned out, but think the fur could be a lighter red-brown.
Mak Eshka'rey is a Bothan sniper. I liked painting his face. I painted the eyepiece yellow and then gave it a green wash. I also dig the Nokia on his belt.
Gideon Argus is a human rebel commander and is fairly unremarkable. The red and white checkered logo was a pain to paint. I liked how the beard turned out. I think this guy would make a good browncoat character for Firefly gaming.
Fenn Signis is a human rebel machine-gunner. Apart from his helmet he's got a very conventional modern appearance. I grew to like the aqua scarf, it adds a splash of colour and character. His face turned out a little like a Ken doll (something about the eyes?) so I gave him some stubble to try and make him a bit more butch.
I really like the Diala Passil pose. She's a Twi'lek and has presumably been in hiding since the Jedi were hunted down. I like her ragged, muddy cloak- it reminds me of Gandalf the Grey. I was really pleased with how her lightsaber turned out- the darker background of the cloak sets it off. The violet skin was a little different, too.
Finally, Luke Skywalker. Army Painter Soft Tone wash over white shirt and cream breeches. I'm pretty happy with the hair and face, I think it looks like him.
