From Barks: Jabba's retinue (50 points)

Star Wars Tuesday is back! Here's Jabba and chums from the latest Imperial Assault release.

Since taking this pic, I've added gloss varnish to Jabba's eyes and slobber.

The Gamorrean Guards are classic pig-faced orcs and such fun to paint.

The Weequay are nice generic scum and villainy.

Nice job Barks - the Gamorreans were always my favourite from the scum palace and you've pulled off Jabba beautifully! 50 points will be added to your bounty

    1. You're right- but I'm not a huge fan of their pose.

  4. Everyone is a winner. Gamorrean Guards Are great they fit in the Star wars universe perfectly but I would use them as more generic mercenaries in every universe. Likewise the Weequay could fit into so many more universes as well. All of them are brilliant in their own right!

  6. Great work on these, Jabba is suitably slimy. The green rocky guys look like they should be aliens on Pigs in Space.

  10. Ah-ha! Somebody got the the latest supplement! ;)
    Great work on them all, Barks! They look very fine! This is better than any I've seen on the internet, and box contents are hard to find.
    I'm definitely getting this expansion! ;)

      (I've heard plausible rumours that Disney have put the kibosh on further representations of 'Slave Leia')
