More Imperial Assault minis got painted!




Two Royal Guard (never understood why the Emperor has a Royal Guard...) and an E-Web Engineer.

The flimsy plastic power cable on the model was not to my liking. Fortunately there is a solution - Zinge Industries Poseable Wire Wrapped Cable!
A great product that keeps up to it’s name.

...and again some more IA minis!
( I really start to like this game!)

1st is an elite (red) Chiss Officer:

Taking an idea from Carl Woodrow's fantastic blog, I decided to paint my Elite (red) Officer as a Chiss. The head is from a privat sculpt (Galactic Bastard mini), all the rest is just paint. Admiral Thrawn was standing model.


My take on the elite red Storm Trooper. Again a simple but IMO very effective head swap. The heads are from Anvil Industries Black Ops Exo Lords Helmets/Heads Set. After that a darker grey paint. Benaeth the suit they are all blue Chiss!

I played a lot IA the last weeks.
And I even got the core 6 heroes finished.


I wanted a more or less coherent look for all 6, like a military squad. I also wanted to keep them close to the character cards.

Detailed shots of each char are on my website!
See: http://www.adpublishing.de/html/imperial_assault.html

Next are the Trandoshan hunters and the AT-ST.

The AT-ST! I reposed the legs a bit, re based the minis, scratched the mold lines again, sanded it, drilled holes in the barrels and finally painted the AT-ST. And since I wanted a military and only slightly weathered look, I used German WW II grey and some weathering here and there, mostly Pigments from MIG and some edge rust and highlights.


The Trandoshan Hunters - since playing the SWTOR Jedi Consular story I like Trandoshans, Qyzen Fess is just a very rich and compelling character. The 4 minis in the box are all identical posed, so time for some conversion work. I cut the arms and head of the beige hunter and re-glued them in a slightly different pose.

And scenery!
Scenery, for what? The games comes with markers and all, or? All true, but for me it brigs the game even more to live. And since I had some Sedition Wars scenery unused, I decided to paint the terminals
and some crates in Imperial grey / red.




After that I went even further, I searched the net and found some nice custom made scenery for Imperial Assault made by Combatzone Scenery!
(http://combatzone-scenery.co.uk/)




And that’s how it all looks in a game:

Not the promised Elite Trandoshans (still WIP) this week, but the two Nexu from the core box.



The Nexu predators - Nexus were feline creatures native to the chilly forests of the Indona continent on the planet of Cholganna. There were other breeds of nexus on Cholganna's other continents, but only the forest nexu had an additional set of eyes able to view in infrared wavelength, which aided in their hunting of bark rats and tree-climbing octopi.
Nexu were often exported and trained as security beasts, as used for patrolling on Malastare, or used in arena combat, as seen on Geonosis - you do remember the arena fight of Padme vs the Nexu in Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones, or?

The Imperial Assault sculpt captures the brutal feel of the Nexu very good IMO! I reposed the Nexu a bit under hot water to distinguish the two beast on the table.

The recently released Ally Pack was just too nice to be left out.


Funny thing is that I am one of the few Star Wars fans that are NOT Wookie/ Chewie fans! But to play with them is just nice. They also paint up in minutes! As usual you get identical minis, so again time for a slight conversion, this time a simple weapon swap.
The darker Wookie got a resin after market Power-Kopesh!

The Elite Trandoshan Wookie Hunter is the most serious conversion so far. I only used the head, lower legs and arms of the FFG Imperial Assault miniature. All the rest are Dreamforge Heavy Valkir Troopers.


The mini is based on the Star Wars: The Old Republic Trandoshan companion of the Jedi Counsular class shown here:


“In contrast to many Trandoshans, Qyzen Fess rejected the path of a mercenary to become a hunter of the galaxy’s most dangerous beasts. Earning “Jagganath points” with every honorable kill, Qyzen has traveled for years, seeking worthy prey and honoring his goddess, the Scorekeeper. Although his travels have brought him to Tython several times, he is never seen by the Jedi if Yuon Par is not at the temple.
Despite his disdain of fame and fortune, Qyzen has attracted some notoriety. He often slips through apparently watertight Imperial borders to follow his prey, much to the consternation of the Empire’s officials. Qyzen is also the only living hunter to have killed a greater crested gundark, thought extinct for centuries. His simple habits and devotion to the Scorekeeper give him common ground with the Jedi, though many disapprove of the attitudes and instincts that come naturally to a Trandoshan.”

Once completing the Lvl 60 Yavin story line you can get a big set of armour for him, I coloured the armour light grey and black and tried to emulate that look on the miniature.

I recently got also into Star Wars Edge of Empire role playing. We played the beginners adventure and I got the (at least IMO cool) Twi’Lek Bountyhunter Oskara. After the second evening I decided to convert a mini to represent her.

So who is Oskara? “Osakara was a native of the planet Ryloth. When her sister, Makara, was captured by Aqualish thugs to work in the Ryll spice mines she offered her services to the gang leader as an "experienced bounty hunter." Her first job went well and she was mentored by Gyax, a veteran hunter. Oskara continued to work for the spice mine gang to keep her sister safe.

The spice gang loaned her out to Teemo the Hutt on Tatooine and although Teemo paid her well she learned that Teemo was planning on seizing the Ryll spice mine. Fearing for her sister's safety she partnered with the Wookiee gladiator Lowhhrick and the Human pilot Pash and sent a warning to her compatriots back on Ryloth.

Oskara was female Twi'lek with green skin. She would seem jaded and cynical due to her rough childhood. She was careful not to get too attached to anything or anyone and focused on her mission instead of emotional entanglements.” from Wookieepedia.

Since I am going to play Oskara using the Assassin talent tree I will use the Mak cards in Imperial Assault! The mini is based on a Dreamforge Eisenkern female Panzerjäger body with a WotC Twi’Lek Dancer head. Lots of greenstuff and Lekku bending were also involved...
Works for me next to the official IA minis...

General Weiss, the main villain of the IA starter box!



I added a communication array (OK just an antenna) on the right side of the walker, opened the cupola, scratched the mold lines as usual, sanded it, drilled holes in the barrels and finally painted the Generals prototype AT-ST. And since I wanted an even darker look, I used a dark German WW II grey and some weathering here and there, mostly Pigments from MIG and some edge rust and highlights. The red striping also helps to distinguish the walker on the tabletop.
