WIP : Bandai Stormtrooper Pt. 4

Mild weathering done with a mixture of Blue Black + Burnt Umber oil paint mix. Mid-way through this I remembered that Bandai plastic has a tendency to crack from turpentine. Hopefully this one holds like my Snowspeeder. It’s also at this point that I think the paint chips look too random. Oh well, chalk it …...

WIP : Bandai Stormtrooper Pt. 3

Most of the details on the helmet are available as decals so I went ahead and added them and then brushed Future over them. Weathering is next and I decided to put the whole figure together and go from there. After that I’ll add a base of some sort. I already have a pose in …...

WIP : Bandai Stormtrooper Pt. 2

No, not quite the Ewok village but yes, Ewoks are a savage bunch. Do not f**k with them. Anyway, painting stage involves a base of black primer. Then I sprayed US Grey so the top layer of Dead White doesn’t need to be too thick to look ‘white’. I also tried to get the upper …...

WIP : Games Workshop Space Marine Pt. 3

The box comes with a set of decals with a ton of choices of markings. I decided to go with an arrow on the right shoulder and the Ultramarines insignia on the left. To prep for them I brushed on some Future. Meantime, I painted the Purity Seal with Transparent Red on top of Foundation …...

WIP : Games Workshop Space Marine Pt. 2

I decided to depict a Space Marine from the Ultramarines chapter which means an overall blue color scheme. Painting begins with a black undercoat. I’m using AK Interactive Black Primer for this. Then it’s spraying Vallejo Foundation White on the areas where logically would be the brightest. It’s also here that I fixed...
