From Barks - Star Wars Imperial Assault (45 points)

Some bits for Imperial Assault.

General Sorin.

HK Assassin droids. These are from the now-non-canon expanded universe, and new to me, and I grew to like their aesthetic and colouring.


Dengar the Bounty Hunter.


Rebel heroes: Verena the close-combat specialist, Loku the sniper and MHD-19 the creepy medical droid.






I confess I know next to nothing about Imperial Assault but I like what I see Barks! You've really captured the look and feel of the movies with these guys. I'm especially impressed by the skin tone and eyes on Loku the sniper. The minute I saw him I had an overwhelming urge to yell "It's a traaaaaap!" 
These fine fellows add a tidy 40 points to your total. Congrats! Cheers, Millsy

  5. What is really impressive is that everyone likes something different. For me it is the sniper.

  9. Awesome. Love the Calimari sniper and Dengar. The medical droid looks a little menacing with that probe attachment. Makes me want to cross my legs and stay sitting...

  13. Excellent stuff! The medi droid really is quite creepy. Wouldn't want to wake up in his 'custody'.
