ieshadow's #theweeklypaint2016

Post by ieshadow » Tue Jun 14, 2016 12:34 pm

Hello Everyone!
I'm new to the mini war gaming forums, and found this to be a good place to start. I am currently working on two projects I am looking to complete before I can move on to other models. It have been sometime since I have played 40k, but want to invest back into it soon, but not until these are done. I have two miniature board games in progress: Star wars: Imperial Assault, and Tail Feathers. I am currently about half way through Imperial Assault, and Tail Feathers is primed up. I will attempt to post weekly with what I am painting, and will post some pictures of the games when I can.
Thank you for this idea, and look forward to sharing with you all.

This is an AT-ST that has been painted, just not based yet.

Then we have the probe droids and ig-88.

Did a subtle detail with the probe droids to determine which is which while in play. Each one has a different eye color. The red is the elite.

I have a few more that are finished that I can post up, of the stormtroopers, imperial guard, Darth Vader, and some creatures I can't remember the name of.

But this week my hope is to paint up the imperial officers. There are three. One will be an elite.

Thanks!

lol my bad, I read too quickly sometimes

Didn't get a chance to get the imperial guard and storm troopers up yet. I will get them next week with the progress of the imperial commanders.

Very nicely painted minis! Did you see the deathmatch part of the forums, yet? If you still got some minis from the Imperial Assault game to paint by next month, perhaps you'd like to compete in a deathmatch? I'm currently actually painting this game as well! Do you still have the Rebels left to paint? Didn't touch a single one, yet.
Painted in 2018:
AdMech: 2 Vanguard
Marines: 1 Rhino, 6 Primaris Intercessor, 1 Captain in gravis armour, 1 Scribbus Wretch
Shadespire: 4 Sepulchral Guard

Thank you!

Only primed up right now. Haven't started in them yet.

I will take a look at the deathmatch rules and see what it is all about!

Read up on it and I think it will be doable! Pick a model or models you want to paint from the rebel side and we will paint it up!
