Sorastro: Star Wars Imperial Assault Painting Guide Ep.11: Chewbacca and Gaarkhan

I hope you all had a great holiday season! I meant to post this up but alias I’ve been sick!

Incase you needed some tips in painting those lovable fur balls you most certainly picked up last week, here is another wonderful tutorial from the master miniature painter himself, Sorastro. The tutorial features Chewbacca of course, but also includes Gaarkhan which gives you a second option for those Wookiee Warriors. After following these guides you should be able to create your own custom paint jobs for the rest of your walking carpets.

Sorastro: Star Wars Imperial Assault Painting Guide Ep.50: Sabine Wren

Not Star Wars Legion, but the Sabine Wren mini, after a quick base swop, fits perfectly in with any custom game of Legion.

If you’re like me, you bought your Sabine mini months ago, primed her, then sat her on a shelf too intimidated to start globing paint all over her in an attempt to match one of her complex color schemes.

The master mini painter, Sorastro now has you covered…not in paint. BUT will show you how to cover your Sabine in paint.

Sorastro: Scout Troopers PDF Guide

Sorastro has an awesome guide to painting those ever waiting Scout Troopers.

Hi Dear Viewers!

Today I’d like to share a PDF guide for the awesome Scout Troopers from StarWars™ Legion™ which you can download for free here.

As you can see I’ve chosen to capture the camouflaged look of the Scout Troopers we see briefly in Episode III.

(If I was going to go with the more traditional black and white look I’d probably take the same approach I did in the Speeder Bike video tutorial.)

Sorastro: Painting Technique Index

Boba 2-1 for website

Sorastro is at it again! This time he gifts the world with a Painting Technique Index which organizes his technique tutorials in one place. I. Love. Organization! The index includes how to base with lava effects, how to paint camo, tattoos, realistic metal. The list goes on and on.

He writes “Hello!

Below is an index of various examples of painting techniques and effects as featured throughout my various painting series with links to the specific videos (or sections of videos) for your convenience.  This index was requested by a viewer because given the number of videos now on the channel it can be hard to recall or find a particular technique – say, how to create a cracked-earth effect for example.

None of these techniques are of course intended to be seen as “definitive” in any way as I’m on my own learning journey like everyone else, but simply examples of how I’ve chosen to execute a particular effect for a particular mini at a particular time.

The index is also very much a working document which I will be adding to/re-organising on an ongoing basis, and if you have any suggestions as to ideas presented in my videos that ought to be added to the list then do please let me know.  Enjoy!”

I won’t steal his thunder. Check this incredible index out after the jump:

Sorastro: Snowtroopers PDF Guide

Sorastro has an awesome guide to painting those ever waiting Snowtroopers.

Hi Dear Viewers!

As promised in the previous post I would like to share with you a PDF guide for painting the Snowtroopers from StarWars™ Legion™ which you can download for free HERE.

As with the Fleet Troopers I’ve tried to achieve a good table-top standard in a reasonably economical way.

I’ll be working on some more Legion videos quite soon.  In the mean time, I hope you enjoy the guide, and happy painting!
