Posted on March 23rd, 2017 under , . Posted by

I started off pulling all the ships out and putting the unmade ones together then sorted all the cards out. Looking at the points values I decided that 300 points a side would look right and would suit 4 players. I always try to get a game to cope with…

Star Wars BB-8 – Bandai 1/12 Scale Plastic Model Kit [Completed]

Posted on February 27th, 2017 under , , . Posted by

Unlike in most other fields where artists can start from a blank canvas, we miniature painters and modellers are beholden to the quality and detail of a sculpture or model kit for the end result. That make us more akin to a renderer rather than creator…

Star Wars BB-8 [WIP – Head]

Eyes are the scariest part of the miniature painting process. Hours of hard work can be rendered immaterial if one botched up the painting of the eyes. That I have stopped using any form of magnification for my miniature painting sessions didn’t help. …

Hasbro Princess Leia [WIP – General Skin Tone]

With the Lunar New Year celebrations ongoing, it’s that time of the year where I get to spent precious "us-time" with my family. An eagerly awaited holiday period when each family member’s free time falls in sync with one another. Of course, it goes without saying that I haven’t had the opportunity to do much painting during this time. Nonetheless, I did do enough to finish painting Hasbro

Star Wars Armada: Dodonna’s Raid

Posted on January 27th, 2017 under , , . Posted by

Part of our 2nd run of the Corellian Conflict

The holodisplay sputtered then came to life. General Jan Dodonna blinked twice, before processing what he saw. The hyperlane near Raider’s Pointe was supposed to be filled with Imperial freighters and independent merchant ships fat with supplies and raw resources. Instead, he saw a combat fleet lying in wait. Was it a trap? Bad luck? He didn’t have time to consider the possibilities before a young lieutenant turned to him:

“Sir? What are your orders?” the woman, no older than 20, was calm, but a slight tremor in her voice betrayed the fear she suppressed.

Jan thought for one moment. He knew his Strike Force was ready. He surveyed the enemy fleet: an aging Victory class Star Destroyer, and a handful of cruisers and corvettes. They were spilling forth fighters now, but they didn’t concern him. Captain Ors had assembled the fighter wing, and organized it into two groups. The X-wing escorts under the leadership of Biggs Darklighter, and the bomber group under Norra Wexley. He knew they could best the Imperial fighters given the chance, and his own ships were more than a match for the Imperial vessels, likely doomed to endless patrols. Aging equipment and bored, un-motivated crews. Jan liked his odds. He leaned forward and thumbed a button on his console.

Y-Wing

“Squadron leaders report in.” His voice echoed through his command ship. Responses came swiftly but calmly.

“Blue Squadron, standing by”, Biggs was the first to respond.

“Green Squadron, ready”, Norra barely contained her excitement.

“Lock S-Foils in attack positions”, now Jan Ors spoke, her command sounding more like a victory declaration than an order.

Hasbro Princess Leia [WIP – Hair Buns]

Posted on January 25th, 2017 under , , , , . Posted by

Just a quick update on my Hasbro 3.75" Princess Leia action figure repaint project; her famous hair buns are done. For an action figure, Leia’s hair was surprisingly well sculpted and that aided me in painting in the necessary details in order to achieve volume and depth to the hair.

Hasbro Princess Leia [WIP – Diplomatic Gown]

Nondescript yet elegant in its simplicity. That about sums up Princess Leia Organa’s iconic white robes aka diplomatic gown in Star Wars A New Hope. Painting whites can be tricky because using just pure white results in a flat look lacking depth and vo…
