Bandai 1/12 Imperial Stormtrooper
« on: July 09, 2016, 07:35:02 AM »
Hi all. Haven't posted in a long while. I've been back on the modeling saddle since last year so hopefully I'll have more sci-fi stuff to contribute. First up is my most recently completed build.

Typical of Bandai's stuff, this kit was pretty much trouble-free. It has excellent details and pretty good poseability.

I gave this kit a mild weathering of salt chipping, handpainted chipping, oil paint wash, drybrushing and dusting via airbrush. In hindsight, the chipping seems too random so it's something to improve on. I also added colored ID bands to break up the monotonous colors of the Stormtrooper armor. I hope Vader doesn't mind. The figure was then placed on the included base with some custom groundwork.

This is build 9 of 2016
