Thank you, Sperian, Viking and Wryce! I finished the first stormtrooper (except for the base). Might be adding some battle damage, once all of them are done.

Thanks for the nice comments! :)

Well, not really. Except for the missions in the starter box. I played all of them with one of my brothers and a few of them with my girlfriend. But once my brother has a bit more of time at his hands for building his Ariadna Units, it'll only be a matter of time! ;) Do you get to play many matches?

Yeah, I would have preferred a more ,,professional" look of the female mini as well.

I wouldn't say we play a lot, but my regular gaming group has pretty much completely moved away from 40K now, so when we DO get together, it's usually to play Infinity. Lately we've been doing 20x20 missions for some extra variety, but now that ITS 2016 is out we'll probably do that. I'm certainly going to get in on one of the Infinity events at GenCon this year so we'll see how that goes.

No painting for me yesterday. Instead I cleaned three Imperial Assault Stormtroopers from moldlines, which is quite difficult, as you can't always tell what's a moldline and what's supposed to be there! :o I'll surely have shaved away some details which were meant to be there. But once they are all painted up, no one will really care (or notice)... at least that's what I hope for!
I also took care of the moldlines of the three probe droids that came with the box! That was even more difficult, as they have a lot of moldlines in places most difficult (or impossible) to reach. So I settled with taking care of those I can reach without ruining the models too much!
Hopefully I might be able to prime both of the sets tonight, but as I'm out for dinner (and beer) with friends of mine, I might have to do that tomorrow.
