Painted Rebels from the Star Wars Legion Core Set
The Plan – Quick and Effective
My intention was to paint a bunch of Rebels who have been sitting in my backlog for ages, as as per usual, I wanted to take a “value for money” approach.
The Painted Rebel Troopers
I painted these guys in a similar way to the Luke Skywalker in my previous post. I started off with a very light brown base coat and then applied several layers of home brew contrast paints, firstly in a greeny-brown and then a darker brown. This resulted in a semi-camouflage look without having to actually paint on camouflage.
The Painted AT-RT
I was super pleased with the AT-RT as it gave me an opportunity to create something with high contrast, which is something it tend to struggle with – my default style is quite under-stated.
Here the grey metal look of AT-RT itself acts as a sort of baseline from which the other colours really pop out from.
