I finished a new little diorama using Bandai’s Turbolaser Tower from their A-wing kit. It’s not really to scale with the A-wing, so I added a Fantasy Flight Games B-wing to the base. I also used a new pre-shading technique called black-basing, which I talk about on the page. Hope you all like it.
So, I haven’t been doing much over the past year. I hit a snag with Kylo’s Shuttle, and just kinda quit for a while. But, I did recently pick of Bandai’s TIE Interceptor and TIE Striker. These went together quickly, and I actually managed to paint and weather them. Check them out.
I’ve also written a new article on the size of Moldy Crow using lots of screenshots.
Finally, I wrote a very extensive piece on my favorite character, Asajj Ventress. I talk about her history somewhat. But primarily I discuss how she exhibits all the symptoms of PTSD. Anyway, I think it came out great, and it really hits on what makes her such an amazing character. Check it out here – Asajj Ventress – Tragic Hero.
So, here are few pics of my latest project, a crashed AT-ST on Hoth diorama complete with turret…..or at least it will be when I start painting and make the diorama.
I finally finished airbrushing the AT-ST. Primarily I used Life Color Barley Grey for the base coat. I then used various other LC greys as highlights. I then took some whitish-grey to create some streaks down the side of the cabin. I’ll be painting in some more modulation, but for now, the airbrushing is done.
If you haven’t seen them yet, check out the painted interior for Bandai’s AT-ST. The detail they provide is superb, and it was a joy to paint and weather.
