Barks kicks of this week's Antipodean contingent with another round of gorgeous Star Wars Imperial Assault miniatures. I must admit the more I see of these the more I'm coming around to them. It's Snow White and the Seven Stormtroopers folks!
One of the hardest things to paint is large areas of white. Often any shading or definition looks forced or overdone but this is quite the opposite. Leia's outfit in particular is most convincing and certainly does justice to a wonderfully posed sculpt. Topped of with a good dusting of a thoroughly researched snow effect and she's enough to make anyone's brother go weak at the knees [ahem!].
I'm scoring the Wampas as 40mm minis so all up this wintery effort adds 79 points to the total Barks. Cheers, Millsy.
PS. Am I the only one who thinks the Wampas look like they're snowboarding? "Whoa duuuuude, you like totally shredded that tauntaun!" OK, I'll get my coat...
