From Barks- Stormtrooper specialists (30 points)

This is my last Star Wars Tuesday, as I have run out of Imperial Assault stuff to paint! These are Jet Troopers,  'cause Stormtroopers really need to shoot stuff one handed whilst flying.

From the invaluable 501st Legion, I found that these are based on a Disney Star Tours attraction! I'm not a big fan of colour on Stormtroopers, but I can live with the monochrome grey piping. Follow the link for pics of 'the real thing'.

Finally, I found two old ISB Infiltrators I had yet to paint. And now my IA pile is empty!

By Paul: Well at least shooting stuff one handed whilst flying wont effect their accuracy any!
They look great regardless - nice job and well done on the awesome achievement of running out of figures to paint for a gaming system.

6 figs will net you a further 30 points and well done on upping your target to 1150 points!

  4. Great work Barks - but how does this "out of figures" thing work? Don't let my wife know that if conceptually possible...

  5. 'Shoot stuff one handed whilst flying'

    As if they didn't have a hard enough time hitting ANYTHING before. ;)

    Wonderful work Barks. Due to you and others in the Challenge my will has collapsed and I've orders a bunch of this stuff for myself. C

  9. I'm rather disappointed you ran out of stuff, Barks. I have really enjoyed your Star Wars posts. You are partialy at fault for my Adepticon shopping list too! ;)
    I do like the stormies and the infiltraitor, they are really crisp and the infiltrator armor is really nice!
