After stea… researching techniques from Sorastro’s Painting guides, I took a stab at my Stormtroppers over the weekend.
Due to a house re-organization, I hadn’t had access to my painting area for months, so I had not done anything in ages. This was my third miniature painting attempt, and my first in about six months. Not as snazzy as many I have seen online, but I am very happy and I definitely consider them “table ready”.April 29, 2015 at 8:45 am #9228

Good work. They should look great on the table top.May 3, 2015 at 10:55 pm #9289
I have now finished the Probe Droids and added them to the album.
While Sorastro’s guide said to go for black for the lenses, I decided to try for a dark purple to get that lens colour. I mixed my darkest purple with some black, but it still didn’t quite work.
I am not upset by this, we learn my doing and mine will be different.May 3, 2015 at 11:05 pm #9290
Nice. I’ve started on painting my set now. I must admit I’m not overly impressed by the quality of the minis now I see them up close, so I’ll just be giving them a relatively pretty quick boardgame-quality paintjob. Sorastro is really getting the most out of them with his incredibly detailed work, but I think I’ll reserve that level of effort for things like Hell Dorado figures!May 4, 2015 at 5:53 pm #9299
I am using Sorastro’s guides as a way of learning technique and practising my skills without having to worry too much about going down the wrong path. So far so good, having just watched the Nexu video, I am terrorfied about how much effort those are going to take, but looking forward to getting that far in my journey.May 15, 2015 at 10:36 am #9386
Just finished the Royal Guard and the E-Web Engineers.
Again, because I am following Sorastro’s guides, there is nothing particularly special here; but for me I am learning a lot, and I am very happy with how they are coming out. They look great on the table, and for me that is the perfect outcome.May 15, 2015 at 10:45 am #9387
That’s all that matters! Apart from being great general painting tutorials, Sorastro takes the opportunity of explaining a range of different techniques. They really are beautifully done videos, especially useful for beginners.
