This week I’ve been furiously painting one of the most impressive models to come out of an Imperial Assault box. Currently there are two versions of the infamous ‘chicken walker’, the standard version that we are all undoubtably fans of and the personal vehicle of the Imperial Assault campaigns villain, General Weiss.
I painted up both of these in much the same manner as each other as I didn’t want to stray from the Imperial standard too much, even if Weiss’s vehicle is something of an aberration, being packed with weapons systems. The only real difference I added was an imperial symbol on the front of Weiss’ craft.
In all honesty I was actually dreading painting these, as I really wasn’t sure how I would tackle these, but once I got started I could hardly put the brush down. These are such an iconic Star Wars vehicle and I think FFG have captured their look perfectly, though I’m not too much of a fan of the weapons on Weiss. I think they are a wee bit too bulky.
