The Great Yu-Jing Project, Part Three

I finished up a few pieces for the big Yu-Jing table we’re building for the Salt Lake City Showdown in May 10th!

The big gate will be the entrance to a walled temple district, which will be on a separate platform made from insulation foam:

I also finished up a few pieces of scatter terrain, which can be placed on different parts of the table depending on the scenario:

Star Wars Legion Commission, Part Two.

I intentionally saved the most fun part of Chris’s project for last: the Airspeeder has been one of my favorite Star Wars vehicles since I first saw it in a long-since-demolished theatre in 1980. I took a little extra time on the weathering to get that “beat to hell but still flying” look just right!

Here’s Chris’s last squad of Rebels, another AT-RT, and one hell of a speeder!

Infinity Aleph Commission, part One

Anthony recently hired me to paint up some of his Aleph miniatures for Infinity! The first batch of the project was total paint work from start to finish:

Sadly, I failed to take good pics of most of the first batch, but I did get these two bots to hold still a minute:

Next up were some detail punch-ups on some figs Anthony already had. I’ve faced Ajax before, so it was nice doing something with this model that didn’t involve me wincing as it wiped out my troops! First up is the big man himself, followed by Achilles:

Star Wars Legion Commission,part One.

Chris asked me to paint up the Rebels he had picked up for the Star Wars Legion game that Fantasy Flight Games just released. The figures themselves are 32mm scale, and are a lot of fun to put together and paint. For the first two squads of troops I drew some inspiration from the Art of Rogue One book:

I mirrored the colors on the second squad for the AT-RT:

And for Luke, Chris wanted something a little different, so I painted Luke up in black tones for his fatigues:

Chris wanted to do the basing himself, and the final figures really look great!

Alien Terrain Project, part One.

My FLGS has a big Infinity event coming up in May, and I have been part of a team putting together a Yu-Jing based board for the tournament. It’s been a fun project, but I want to put a table together featuring alien terrain.

I picked up a big sheet of blue insulation foam, and started carving it up with a knife. Lots of shaping later I ended up with this:

That’s a pretty cool chunk of rock, and I sealed it in a couple of coats of Mod Podga and black paint.

Next up, I started layering in bright, alien colors, aiming for a classic Star Trek look. I also ordered a big bag of plastic aquarium plants, which really added to the overall cool factor:

Now I need to work up enough of this stuff to cover a 4′ by 4′ table by May 10th!
