Imperial Assault: Painting Fantasy Flight Game Figures

For Christmas, my mom got my boys (per my influence, hahaha) the game Imperial Assault by Fantasy Flight.  These are the guys that make Descent and X-Wing.  Both GREAT games.  Since we are all Star Wars fans, except my wife, she can care less and thinks we are all geeks, I figured this game would be fantastic for us to all to play. 

When I opened the box, I found a TON of goodies, and especially the figures.  WOW, great sculpts. As soon as I saw them, I KNEW I had to paint them....yes I know, my wife is correct, I AM a geek. 

So before my boys got the box for Xmas, I figured I would paint for them Luke Skywalker and his dad, Darth Vader.  I think they came out great!  Wasn't hard and being there are a ton of reference photos out there, it was easy painting. 

 Father and Son.  After this, I repainted the bases a darker grey.  No flock or liberating!
 Royal Guard Champion

 Royal Guard.  The red on the base means "elite" unit version. 
 Group of 4 Royal Guard
 IG-88.  He was a separate purchase.
 Imperial Officers.  Their ranks are legit!  The grey haired gy, is the highest rank and will be my "elite" model. He is also wearing black gloves (which you cant see in this photo)
 Han Solo.  Separate purchase

 Light Grey primer and then I used a diluted wash on him to "pre shade" a bit. 
He is a Hero character, I forget his name. 
That's it so far.  I have A LOT more models to paint.  Pretty easy so far, and funny enough, the Storm Troopers are the hardest being all white!!!
This was the first Fantasy Flight model I painted from their Descent game.  An Ettin.  I painted the base to look like a dungeon floor.

  1. I like how you differentiated between the gloss and matte finish on the armor/leather portions of the models... awesome! Watching the movies tonight and was inspired to go back and check out your Star Wars troops again hehe.
