How many stormtroopers do you have in total?

Finally back from a work trip. Here's a pic of all my Empire troops.



I make it approx 40 Stormtroopers, 17 Imperial Army and 9 Imperial Navy figures.

As always, more pictures on the blog https://nozzawargaming.blogspot.com/2023/10/the-galactic-empire-armed-forces.html.

A respectable sized force for any game - lookin' good!

Reminds me I should dig out my stash of mini-rigs and actually do something with them!

Lord Vader will be pleased!

Any conversation with Lord Vader you get to walk away from, right?  :D

I'm calling them finished for the moment, but never say never. If I see some Stormtroopers in a sale  ;)

Following on from my Empire overview. Here is my little contingent of Jedi Knights. The vast majority are converted Frostgrave wizards that I did back in 2020. Also, there's a couple of Rogue Stars figures and lastly a Yoda/Grogu figure from Diehard Miniatures.

Re: Nozza_uk jumps through a Stargate!

Although I never watched it religiously, I have always had a fondness for Stargate SG-1. Recently, I found myself binge watching it while I was getting over a bout of Covid.

A long time ago, I picked up the 'not' Stargate figures from Hasslefree Miniatures. Although I gamed with them, I was never truly happy with their 'not Teal'c figure as it was armed two machine guns. What I really wanted was a Teal'c figure holding his famous staff weapon.

Fast forward to 2023 and you pretty much find what you want sculpted and available to be 3D printed. Sure enough, I found a Teal'c figure holding a staff weapon on Etsy. Designed by Papsikels and printed by Starlettminiatures, I bought the figure below.

Although billed as 32mm, when put on a standard 'slotta' base, the figure towered over other normal 28mm figures. So I used a thinner base. Next job was trying to match a paint job I did over 10 years ago.

Here's the result.



Mixed in with Hasslefree and The Assault Group figures.



The height difference and paint job hopefully not too noticeable.

After a Covid enforced break, eased myself back into painting with Kirk, Spock and McCoy wearing the uniforms from films 2 to 6. 3D printed via an Etsy seller.
