Imperial Assault – Boba Fett!

fett-1

This is actually one of the very first Imperial Assault miniatures I painted. I’m a self confessed Fett addict, and as soon as I opened his packet I knew he was jumping straight to the front of my paint queue.

As you can imagine I had a ball painting this guy. Pouring over reference pictures to make sure I could get him looking as accurate as possible…

I’m really pleased with how he turned out and I hope you like him. The model, whilst not amazingly detailed, certainly does the infamous character justice. The only foible I have with it is the pose. I like the idea of advancing and firing, but it’s the Fett, there’s surely a much more badass pose they could have gone with.

Unfortunately he’s all I have painted for my mercenary forces so far, but as with the other factions, I’m hoping the campaign will give me a good reason to get a lot more of them done.

May 2014 – A Month in Review

I’ve decided to post a wee gallery at the end of each month to show a roundup of the hobby prohjects I’ve completed in that time. This is so people will be able to get a look at everything in one place, but also to give me an idea of what I’m getting through. I’m also looking to try at least one new hobby method each month, such as the icicles I tried this month, to add to my hobby skills and hopefully this will encourage me a bit more.

So without further ado, here’s what I’ve done this month…

Deadzone – Time to Paint Some Mercs!

Before I move onto another faction I’d like to get the Mercs I have painted and ready to play…

Mercs

So far I have Nastanza, Wrath and the LE Survivor to paint. The plan is to do the survivor in similar colours to the Rebs and Wrath in a kind of opposite colour scheme – Red armour with white detailing. Nastanza I’m not sure on, but I’m sure I’ll figure it out before I’ve finished the other two 😀
