From Barks: A Star Wars big bonus beast (35 points)

We interrupt our Star Wars spaceships with this massive rancor. I got her last week, and couldn't resist painting her straight away. I think she's the best miniature FFG has ever done. She's bloody huge, over 10cm tall.


I also painted Luke for a sense of scale- I used Vallejo Yellow Green on the saber blending as it has a fluorescent quality.

Alan and Paul: That rancor is awesome! what a beast. You really have the Star Wars bug this year, Barks. I'm guessing you liked Rogue One? I've scored the beast as a 54 mm vehicle, so that's another 35 points for you.

  15. Two terrific miniatures, the glow effect from Luke's lightsaber is really well done! Now I've got the itch to buy a few more expansion packs for Imperial Assault!

  17. Awesome, you truly are one with the Force! I can't decide what I like best: the textures on the Rancor or the effects on the light sabre. Brilliant!
