After taking some comparison pics, I finally painted some more minis.


I worked on some more Rebels. Even bigger than Rex! The trooper left is the Legion Duros trooper with a head swap and some extra shoulder pads, the right trooper received a heroic scale Statuesque female head.
Works fine IMO since the coat is so formless it could also be a female under it.


And my favourte mini mix so far:

Chopper, Ashoka, Rex and Hera!

Good job! Those statuesque heads really give character, and the Rebs are perfect for conversions to female.

Great work as always. I hate to say it though, but the female head swap looks a bit funny; it looks to me like her legs are a bit too short. Of course humans come in all shapes and sizes, and it probably won't be noticeable at all on the tabletop.

I even took some extra time to create a nice scenic shot, Lens flare and all...

We'll find out soon enough eh.

Lovely stuff chief - I think that model is in fact meant to be one of the two female members of the squad, she's just wearing as you say a big formless jacket-thing.

Looks like nonstandard bases though, the Organised Play Fun Police will be after you if you keep that up - Official FFG Plinthbases only!

I need to acquire plastic Skavenslaves, can you help?

Thanks folks.

As far as the bases are concerned, yes these are 25mm bases, I really dislike the cones from FFG! And since I did not plan to play in any tournaments I couldn’t care less ...

And the WIP conversions for the next Rebel squad.

Left: Head swap with Statuesque minis, bottle, helmet from Victoria minis.
Leader: bendy WotC head, Grenades and arms from GW IG
Right: extra shoulder pads from Anvil Industries.

The Empire Storm Trooper are nice overall minis, IMO a bit tall (even taller than the Rebels).
As with my Rebels I did not use the cone-like FFG bases but flatter 25mm plastic bases.

These look fantastic. I see your stormtrooper at the top of the page has the rims around his eyes painted white. Was it a conscious decision not to do that for your more recent squad? Leaving it black does make their eyes look a bit massive, like pandas.

Legion - Clone Wars
Soon after the arrival of Legion some back market models appeared, first scenery, then head swap conversion parts and finally full models.
I was pleased to see that Mel (see my X-Wing models) is also doing some very good Clone Trooper!

So time to paint some!

From left to right, Phase II CT with DC-15S blaster carbine, ARC Trooper (maybe Rex?) and Phase II CT with DC-15A Blaster Rifle. So models are of good quality (the sculpts are in fact flawless), but some print lines appear and need to be carefully removed wherever possible. They are painted in the colours of Rex’s 501st Legion.

The always welcome comparison picture:

From left to right, FFG Legion Trooper, Phase II CT with DC-15A Blaster Rifle ARC Trooper and FFG Heavy Trooper.

As you can see the Mel CTs are more realistic proportioned, while FFG has the chunky “heroic” scale GW look. Both are nice models by themselves!
I am planning to paint 2 or 3 Clone squads and some corresponding lists for my Victory Decision Future Combat system.

After the big CW annoucement yesterday I am even more hyped to paint some CW minis.


All Clones from Mel, Yoda is an old bendy WotC mini.


Three ARC Trooper of the 501st Legion. One with Z-6 Rotary Blaster Cannon, one DC-15S Blaster and DC-15A Blaster Sniper Rifle.

More as ever on my site: http://www.adpublishing.de/html/legion.html

Mel also started to produce Jedi to lead the clones! Obi Wan Kenobi is the 1st.


A very good mini with also very little printlines!

And the always productive Mel also offers Droids and the infamous General Grievous!

As you can see two of the 4 sabers are missing the brittle Shapeway material simply broke away and the saber itself was too tiny to replace the blade. Anyway I received a full refund and the model still looks cool IMO.

Two more Clones!


The ARC Trooper are now pretty complete.

Four ARC Trooper of the 501st Legion. One with DC-15S Blaster, DC-15A Blaster Sniper Rifle, Z-6 Rotary Blaster Cannon and one Trooper aims with his RPS-6 Rocket Launcher.

The good thing with all the Legion hype is that the aftermarket is also booming.
Several terrain kits popped up, one of my favourites are the Tatooine buildings in hard foam from Micro Art Studio.

Luke and two Trooper (Imperial Assault) are getting into it in front of the “Desert Habitat” - right out of Ep. IV!

I was amazed to see some excellent Shoretroopers on Shapeways. Being a big Rogue One fan (IMO the best of the 4 new movies) I was very curious and ordered some.
The minis fit perfectly to Legion minis from FFG! Even better than Mels!


Coastal defender stormtroopers, more commonly known as shoretroopers, were a specialized variant of the Galactic Empire's stormtroopers trained and equipped for combat in tropical environments. Stationed at the top secret Imperial security complex on the tropical planet Scarif, shoretroopers patrolled the beaches and bunkers of the facility.
Shoretroopers operated effectively as sergeants which allowed them to command small squads of regular stormtroopers. One of the notable aspects of coastal defender stormtroopers was that the position they serve in was rotational (temporary); subject to rank (skills and qualification) and operational demands (open positions due to mobilization or transfers). On a galactic scale, shoretroopers as a whole were scarce, as the conditions for necessitating their employment were less frequent, as few stations or garrisons were located on coastal/tropical planets.
Shoretroopers wielded both the E-11 blaster rifle and the upgraded E-22 blaster rifle while stationed on Scarif. They also carried a thermal imploder.

Shapeways model in Smoothest Fine Detail, still some rough spots though...

"I'm not a terrorist. I'm a patriot. And resistance is not terrorism." ―Saw Gerrera

Saw Gerrera was a human male Onderonian resistance fighter who, as a leading member of the Onderon rebels, fought against the Confederacy of Independent Systems on Onderon during the Clone Wars. He and his sister, Steela Gerrera, were instrumental in the rebel liberation of their homeworld during the Onderonian Civil War. He later became a key member in the fight against the Galactic Empire and the formation of the Alliance to Restore the Republic. His tactics against the Empire led him to be seen as an extremist, one whose notoriety was recognized by the Empire and, many years later, the New Republic. - from SW Wikia


Not only is Saw Gerrera one of my favourite R1 characters, the Shapeways mini by Skull Forge is just breathtaking good.
A true masterpiece that shows what can be accomplished today. Below is a group shot with other R1 chars.

Always a pleasure to see your work. With appreciation that the softer plastic on those figs makes it a challenge to paint on
