Since Christmas I’ve had the Star Wars Legion core set from Fantasy Flight sitting on a shelf collecting dust. Mainly because of other projects that was already underway, such as Blood & Plunder miniatures and terrain pieces. But Valentines day my wife brought home 3 expansion boxes she had found at a local gaming store. She also commented that several at the store was going to play Star Wars Legion the next evening. We went to get a taste of the game, and while I was already interested my wife sound it exciting as well. So, the next day I started painting the rebel faction from the core set for her to play.
The first unit of rebels were painted Sorastro style” and the second unit in a red-brown leather color scheme.
Base colors were applied followed by a wash and finished with highlights, mixing the highlight colors into the base colors in several steps. Unless otherwise noted, paints are Vallejo Model Color.
