Slight detour from the Tatooine buildings… To help break the routine of carving foam, I decided I needed something a little different to model and paint. Enter the might of the Imperial fighter squadron and the crimson terror that is the Royal G…

Star Wars AT-ST – Bandai 1/48 Scale Model Kit [Unboxing and Pre-Assembly Review]

Posted on November 16th, 2017 under , , , , . Posted by

Dubbed the chicken walker, the Imperial AT-ST (All Terrain Scout Transport) Walker is my third favourite Star Wars vehicle after the AT-AT (All Terrain Armoured Transport) Walker and TIE Fighter. So I guess my list is top-heavy with either Galactic Emp…

Imperial Terrain: First Impressions

Thanks to Dave from Imperial Terrain, I got my hands on some of their Legion inspired terrain pieces. The moisture vaporators, the tower and the small house are part of the Imperial Terrain desert range. I love the design choices. While still being fai…

Star Wars Snowspeeder – Bandai 1/48 Scale Plastic Model Kit [Completed]

Posted on October 30th, 2017 under , , , . Posted by

A sense of awe and wonderment is etched into my childhood memories of time spent poring over images of the Industrial Light & Magic (ILM) crew at work. These behind-the-scenes model makers were, dare I say it, chief contributors to the success of the Star Wars franchise. For sure the efforts of ILM’s cameraman, optical technicians, etc. are all necessary components of a whole. But at its core,

Star Wars Legion – Tatooine Table – Part 10

Posted on October 24th, 2017 under , , , , . Posted by

A pic of all the buildings made to date. This is on a 4×4 ft table. It may make for some fairly tight games if a few extra barricades / obstacles were added down the two main thoroughfares. Maybe not the best hunting grounds for speeder bikes ? ;)The p…

Finally finished rebasing Star Wars!

Posted on October 24th, 2017 under , , . Posted by

Several years ago, I put together matching Star Wars armies, mostly using 25mm West End Games figures. I based them in groups for HoTT, played a campaign with the Imperials and then shelved them. I then used them for Memoir 44 but the grouped bases did…

Two more buildings for the Tatooine table. I think these are going to be the last two for now…Both buildings have removable roofs. These will be magnetise prior to painting…Until next time :)

Star Wars Legion – Tatooine Table – Part 8

Created a proto-type door for the Tatooine buildings…Initial thoughts; Not bad for a first attempt. One of the biggest challenges was bending the archway into shape. I used a hairdryer to heat the plasticard, but it takes some time to get the desired…

Two more buildings for the Tatooine gaming table :)Like the larger cantina / market building from the last post, I decided to make the roofs removable to allow minis to be placed inside…And here’s the second building; Until next time :)

Star Wars Snowspeeder [WIP – Snap fitting parts onto the upper hull and a final open-cockpit view]

Posted on October 20th, 2017 under , , , . Posted by

Snap fitting the snowspeeder’s power coupling/convertor, laser activator, air intake, repulsor systems onto the upper hull may be a simple enough task. But the life it breathes into the scale model is immense. At long last, the snowspeeder now looks li…

After making towers, I wanted to go back to making a building that would provide some interesting options for in-game mini movement and cover…I envisage this building to be a cantina or market bizarre, full of shady corners and even shadier character…
