I had a great break from work for about two months. I’d hoped to get a lot of painting done, but, of course, lots of other things happened and not as much painting as I wanted to get through. (Now I’m back working again! The weather is improving, so I’m hoping I can keep painting something regularly.)
Here’s four Star Wars figures that I think were finished in August sometime, but I only got them photographed yesterday. From left to right:
“Rebel Characters” – Alien Student of the Force (SW72), Old Senatorial (SW71) and “Bounty Hunters” – Rebel Scout (SW30), Boba Fett (SW21) .
Before I managed to make a tree for one of the players in Gamma World, we’d been using the Alien Student as our sentient mobile tree. I had this in mind when I came to painting and liked the idea of the alien being a plant creature. It got a solid dark purple base coat, and then I worked up the greens over the top. The ‘old man’ got bright colours to make him a little more interesting, mostly red-yellow. The ‘rebel scout’ was given a simple military look – I wasn’t aiming for any actual ‘rebel’ theme. Boba Fett got colours to match the images I’d turned up, as much as possible and some more distinct basing.
I’m pleased with how they have worked out. They can certainly be used in any further Gamma World gaming, but there is always the potential of actually playing Star Wars again in future, or using figures without obvious technology in D&D or Pathfinder. I still have 14 more figures waiting to be painted, but they can wait untill I get through more of my Zombicide survivors!
