I've finished up the last two characters for the Vanguard and tried a couple of new techniques on them, more on this and using my new light box over on my blog:

These are pretty nice, I like that OSL a lot.

Lovely shading on the medic (my favourite mini out of the sedition wars range!), and really convincing skin tone too. I like the OSL on the bigger chap. Nice work!

Cheers guys,

Finished doing my test Stormtrooper, the white takes some patience but pays off.  I'm using Instar's Arctic White and it hands down the best white I've used for coverage and that was watered down slightly, I was tempted to leave them at the post wash stage (on the left) for a dirtier look but I just couldn't do it so will be going with a nice gloss for these.

Nice work! 8)

It’d be nice to see the guy with the red OSL photographed on a dark background! I think we’d get to appreciate him a lot more.

Cheers Andy, I've got a black background to try out so will give it a go when it's next out.

Though it took a bit of patience, I finished working on the white for the Stormtroopers this morning.
 Normally a job like this would have driven me nuts but I actually found it rather satisfying.

Are these figures Imperial assault or legion?
Very nice work on the white , I am struggling to paint my IA storm troopers at the moment

These are the Imperial Assault Stormtroopers and I followed Sorastro's youtube guide for painting them (spray white, paint all black parts dark gray, wash black and then build the white back up).  It must be said that the Arctic White from Instar has been superb for doing these, great coverage even when thinned down.

As I'm posting here's a quick update, Stormtroopers highlighted/bases prepped and Imperial Sentry Droids started (loved these guys in Rebels).

The Stormtroopers have been finished so here's a quick photo of them, I will get one in the photo tent in the next week but as I'm still playing around with that to get the best results I thought this would do for now.  In the mean time I've nearly finished the Sentry Droids so more on them soon.

Thanks

A quick update; the Sentry Droids are nearly done (just basing to finish off) and the AT-DP is now well on the way (just weathering it up this morning, first proper use of Typhus Corrosion - great stuff).
