Having dug out a bevy of Star Wars miniatures, I thought I'd best get a handful based up ready for painting.
Although I've dug out a squad or Rebel Troopers, I thought I'd prep some random bits and bobs that might otherwise take my fancy.
Cleaning up a tiny Chewbacca, I realised that despite what I might otherwise like to think, I am in fact the sort of nerd that would be annoyed at a tiny facsimile of a fictional character having the incorrect fictional weapon :
Some careful cutting and sanding of his original gun and a donor part from a Perry WOTR sprue later though, Chewie has a bowcaster:
Bam, here's a batch waiting for their basing to dry before I can undercoat them:
I have a LOT of these, I'm going to be really interested in how these turn out when you re-paint them.ReplyDelete
I've seen, your blog comes up on a lot of my recent google searches!Delete
If you want to see how good they can look when handled by a talented painter, have you seen Agis' Star Wars Miniatures?
I hadn't, thanks for that, I'm tempted to give it a go ona few myself, although my painting isn't as good as that chaps.Delete
Don't worry, my painting isn't as good as Agis' either! If you get frustrated and decide you can't bear to have them in the house any more though, you know where you can find them a good home ;)Delete
You're not the only one after my collection, but its staying firmly where it is! :)Delete
Fantastic! Nice conversion. Manufacturer?ReplyDelete
It's a WOTC bendy plastic mini - Chewbacca, Enraged Wookiee from the Alliance and Empire set. I probably would have preferred a slightly different sculpt, but this was the only Chewie I had!Delete
