AT-AT AND FRIENDS

This month Azazel is running another painting challenge DIABOLICAL DECEMBER this covers a lot of categories one of which is large walkers, so I thought this would be a great time to get my largest walker finished my AT-AT, now the model comes prepainted but the weathering on it felt off with the lines going in all directions as seen here

I've gone for a dirty mottled look with additional weathering and forced shadows using washes

And here it is with it's two little buddies for scale.

I've also managed to paint Kayn Somos a stormtrooper officer, I've done the armour slightly different from normal to make him stand out from the rank and file stormtroopers.

Last to show today is a cantina patron that I finished at the same time as the rest, but managed to lose it under my table and only found it as I was looking for something else ! LOL so here is Lak Sivrak, not sure if he was in both versions of episode 4 but was definitely in the original.

That's it for this post so until next time have fun !

WE DON'T SERVE THEIR KIND IN HERE

Firstly apologies that I haven't commented on anyone's blog this last week, a combination of work and bad health has kept me away from the computer, plan this evening is to catch up on all your blogs this evening. Many thanks to the few who commented on my last post I will answer them this evening as well.
Before my dry spell I had been working on some patrons for the cantina  in Mos Eisley, these models are from the Star Wars miniatures range available from tritex-games.co.uk
First up is Muftak, which was in both versions of "A New Hope" the original and extended version

Next is Kabe who was also in both versions

Next is Chachi De Maal, who was also in both versions

Next is his cohort Ohwun De Maal who was also in both versions

Next is Myo who I believe was in both versions but not a 100% sure

Next is Hem Dazon who was in both versions

Next is Takeel who was in both versions

Next is Momaw Nadon who was in both versions, this one required some greenstuff to make the costume right to the movie

Last is Feltipern Trevagg this on also required some greenstuff to make his costume right, not sure if he was in both versions

That's it for this post so until next time have fun !

TAXI !

Following on from my last post, I have now painted a version of the car as a Taxi, have set this one in flight mode.

Don't know at the moment if I will be offering painted versions due to the length of time it takes to paint them, but will see if possible.
Have also painted up the Desert Nomad tent, nothing like getting it done at the last minute, as I had to cast and paint it today for release. Need to be better organised for next month ! LOL

Just a quick post today, hopefully next time I will have some Cantina patrons to show, so until next time have fun !

I LIKE DRIVING IN MY CAR !

For regular readers you may remember the Lamborarri 2000 I made a while back, I always intended to make more cars and even started another one at the time, but never really got too far on it as the visitors to the workshop will be able to confirm. I recently was in the mood to finally finish this second vehicle and here it is, it uses the same wheels as the Lambo, and can be set as wheeled or flying, and the kit will also include a sign for the top to make it into a taxi ( will show this once I've painted the taxi version)

This will be available on the site in January, but readers of the blog can order now by email.
Have also managed to paint the pit monster this week, just need to finish the desert nomad tents ready for Monday

That's all for this post, so until next time have fun !

AT-ST

This month I've been trying to get my walkers done for IA, earlier this month I showed mt AT-DP, now I've finished my AT-ST, this vehicle was first seen in Empire Strikes Back on Hoth, then a larger feature in The Return Of The Jedi on Endor.
I used the same painting technique on this one as I did for the AT-DP.

Here is also a group shot of the two walkers together, this is to make life easier for Azazel for Mechanical November painting challenge. I have a third walker to do, but won't be finished in time so may try and get it finished for his Diabolical December painting challenge instead.

That's it for this post, so until next time have fun !
