These Actually Are the Droids You're Looking For...
The six Star Frontiers robots are finished! This is a blurry pic from my dumb-phone, but consider it a teaser for now. I like how these turned out and I'd like to give them their due with a real post. I just wanted to get these posted here before the new year so they'd "officially" count for the 2010 totals. You can see the Star Frontiers Sathar in the background, he (she?) is basically done as well, I just need to base him (her?).
I'll be honest, in the beginning I was just going to do a silver drybrush on all these guys and call it a day, shooting for quantity over quality. There was such an overwhelmingly positive response from you guys though I was inspired to do more. I broke the six 'bot group into three pairs and painted each pair with a specific "theme" in mind.
Hoth Han and Chewie painted up much faster than I thought as well. I tell you, these old West End Games sculpts are really great. The Han Solo fig actually looks like Harrison Ford, and has plenty of detail, not bad for "true" 25mm scale. Chewbacca was a good sculpt as well, but it seems to me kind of hard to screw up a Wookie sculpt.
Another blurry pic, sorry, consider it another teaser pic. I wanted to get these guys in under the wire for 2010 as well. No time for more, I've still got two figs to paint up and an 'end of the year' post to whip up as well. Enjoy!
