I picked up Return to Hoth, the latest Imperial Assault expansion, at CanCon. Here are the rebel forces:
Verena Talos is a close-combat specialist, starring on the box cover. I enjoyed painting her hair and her coat.
Loku Kanoloa is a Mon Calamari sniper. Rather than the character art, I painted him in the same camouflage as the Endor Strike Team. He's got the same duster and gaiters, after all. I really enjoyed painting the head patterns, they help sell the figure.
MHD-19 is a medi-droid. I think he's seriously creepy. Check out some of the character art, the Imperial officer is terrified!
|I can end your pain. Forever.|
Echo Base Troopers. I like the effect on their goggles.
This was my first ever attempt at snow basing, and I've been scouring the internet for tips for several months prior. Here's my final recipe:
- Builder's plaster to build up the groundwork
- Paint pale blue-grey, then drybrush white
- Paint the figure, then varnish
- Concoction of Woodland Scenics' 'Realistic Water' and 'Soft-flake snow' and Secret Weapon 'Ground glass'
Finally, Leia. I like her attitude, and the contrasting pale tones.
