The Shoretroopers for Fantasy Flight Games Star Wars Legion were a joy to paint, not least because of the contrast paint used. As usual I start painting with a three-color zenithal prime (a thin coat of black Vallejo surface primer, followed with a 45-degree application of gray, and finished with white from above).
The colors are as follows, unless otherwise noted (all paints are Vallejo model color and shades are Army Painters Quickshades).
|Basecoated with a 1:1 mix of Skeleton Horde contrast paint and contrast medium|
|Pale Sand||Thinned and glazed as a highlight|
|Pants & Shoes||USA Olive Drab
|Watered down to a wash and applied|
|Smoke||Thinned to a wash, tinting the leather areas|
|1:1 mix and applied to one arm. washed with red tone and Flat Red used as a highlight|
|Azure Blue||Used for the blue armor markings|
|Flat Yellow||Used for the blue armor markings|
The base was done in my usual way for the empire. See Darth Vader: A Study in Black or Emperor Palpatine: The Pallid Face of Evil.
Until next time, adventure on!
