Star Wars Rebellion - Painting

Just a short one. Amidst the ongoing DIY in our home I managed to find some time to finish painting the Star Wars Rebellion miniatures. Looks great on the table now and all in all wasn't too arduous. However I am a stickler for space ships actually flying...

    1. I generally use Vallejo with games workshop washes.

      You can get a lot done with a grey and white base coat. Use a spray on primer and wash the minis with a 50/50 mix of medium and black wash. This brings out all the detail then you can drybrush white. Using this technique you can get all Imperial ships and vehicles done. Rebels are similar but start from white base with a black/brown wash.

      I went further edge highlighting everything but you can get a really good finish just with the above steps.

      Happy to comment more if you want more detail. Good luck

  2. These look great! What did you use to base the smaller ships on? (the small black round bases)

    1. I found MDF bases cut to size on eBay, they are only about £2 for the lot :) can probably find the seller if you need me to

    1. The ship's are standard flight bases on eBay should be able to find them. The AT-AT bases are custom cut to size again by a guy who does MDF bases on eBay. All real cheap and I can find who I bought off if you can't find them just message again.

  5. Can you advise what size the troop miniatures are? Are they 15mm, 22mm, 28mm etc? Thanks :-)

    1. My guess is around 15mm. They are larger than some 10mm troop minis I have but not by much

    1. I believe you want "clear flying base" something like.
