From Barks - Rebel Raiders (45 points)

Oh yes, Star Wars Tuesday is back! These are the latest releases of Rebels for Imperial Assault.


Vinto Hreeda, Onar Koma, and Shyla Vrashtu all sound like curries. Vinto is my new pet favourite, with his Starlord-esque appearance, running and gunning against the clock. Onar was great fun to paint with bright red, orange and yellow. Shyla is my least favourite, but I think she'll kick arse on the tabletop.

These Rangers are, if you look closely, all female. They painted up really quickly and my only complaint is the monopose.


Alan and Paul: 'Thanks, I'll have an Onar Koma with a Sith Biryani thanks.' Well, these lovely figures have certainly curried favour with us. Great paintjob Barks. Vinto is my favourite as well. He looks like a Rodian who would always fire first. I think you did a excellent job on the Rangers as well. They could easily look pretty flat with the drab colour scheme, but you have managed to get a lot of contrast to draw out the detail. The Force is with you.

  4. Brilliant use of colour and lovely brush control. I like the figures much better than the silly names that are dished out in the SW universe. Isn't there anyone named Dave or even Rowena?

    1. Apparently there's a Luke. I guess Game of Thrones gets your goat, padre, where everyone's name is misspelt.

    2. I dunno, I read/watch sci-fi and fantasy so I can get away from the Dave's and Rowena's of the world.

  9. Wow, as ever brilliantly painted Star Wars stuff! I like the big lad/lass best and the troopers are very well done. I've also been tempted to get this game - must stay strong!

  11. I love these, Barks! The new rebel heroes are really nice, I do like the fellow laser slinging!;)
    Your rangers look really awesome too, I may camouflage up the next set I get as I like your approach to them better than the green and brown I did!

    1. Thanks, David! I stippled brown and two shades of bright green over a pale basecoat, then Army Painter acrylic Soft Tone, then a light drybrush to tie it all together and help it 'pop'.
