My Storm Troopers are, arguably, finished. Excuse the shoddy quality of the camera yet again. I wanted to go for my usual sand + Steel Legion Drab bases, but guess who can't find his box of it in the midst of the apocalypse?
This was meant to be more experimental than it turned out being. Things I've discovered are that the Scion kit would look about a hundred times better if most of the helmets included the respirator filter as it would both 'fill out' the faces a lot more and hearken much closer to the old metals. Secondly, it would have been a good idea to grab some Contrast for the plasma coils but unfortunately there's not a lot I can do about that right now. I made the mistake of giving more sub-assembles a try and the weird patchy black strips you might see in places are the result. Needless to say my new most hated model is the Volley Gun(ner?). Zandri Dust over a basecoat of Steel Legion Drab is definitely the way to go, as trying to put it over a black undercoat (the sleeprolls) turned out as well I predicted going by past experience, but I wanted to see the difference both on the same model would make.
Once the event is over I'll probably strip them and give them another bash as I'm not too thrilled with how they turned out.
Anyway, here's a Commissar I dug out and will be using to round off the Patrol Detachment requirements:
