Star Wars Legion: Imperial Shoretroopers

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).

Base ColorsDetails
Armor Skeleton Horde
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
German Grey
Watered down to a wash and applied
Leather Flat Earth Basecoast
  Smoke Thinned to a wash, tinting the leather areas
Details Red
Flat Red
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! Koliada
