ones upon a game

I am almost exclusively a solo gamer and look at the gaming scene seen through those eyes. I also literally like alliteration. TWITTER: @onesuponagame

With my limited time in the middle of the week, knocked out some more of the Stormtroopers inner black areas (slow and steady wins the race). Six down three to go.

It's a bit tedious, especially near the gun as the fingers are black with a white armor bit on the back of the hand. The gun being pure black as well, gives a little room for "error", but still a lot of flipping and rotating to get everywhere. I wish the gun were more a gunmetal grey and then it would be more distinct, but growing up and watching the films, they were pure black, so black it is.

To reward myself between troopers, I started on the Imperial Guards too. These guys are pretty much all bright red except their gloves (darker red) and their shock prod staff or whatever it's called.

Based these in a Sienna brown color and have dry-brushed on a couple of layers of barn red before going to the highlight coat. Photo shows one before and after, although added another coat to the after one after that. All are pretty much in the same state now. Will cover with Cardinal Red, mostly highlights, then do a black wash for the detail, then highlight with a clean coat of the highlight red.
