View Full Version : new look?

10 September 2004, 09:35 PM
hey... for those of you who have purchased the minis... how paintable are they? Id like to customize them quite a bit to fit my needs (and to differentiate between NPCs and run of the mill troopers), but before i jump headlong into this, Id like some opinions. Anyone tried to paint? Howd it turn out for you?

I haven't tried painting them yet, but they seem like the new minis would hold the paint if you primered them properly. Be sure you use something that dries with a "flexible" finish, like acrylic. These miniatures are way too bendy for enamels, which would chip right off...

Post something if you do some painting; I'm still trying to catch up with my LOTR backlog.

pretty paintable.

I have repainted about 12

I took a bunch of the Twe'lik Scoundrels and Bodyguards becuase in the RPG the players are on Ryloth and painted a bunch of the skin tones on the Scoundrels to red, blue green etc, and the same on the Bodyguards. I also did some of the cloths on them so i could have different looking minis.
