A quick break today until I start new projects. I had this Obi Wan Kenobi from KnightModels awaiting for some months. I made a quick job on the mini, one of these things you need to do to take some fresh air and get the feeling of doing actual progress on something.
|I don't realize how awful my pics are until I see stuff like this|
Pretty straightforward paintjob, standard colours and a little mandatory OSL for the lightsaber.
|I should take more risks and make more (and larger) layers. For now this is it.|
It's not the first time I paint an Obi Wan, some years ago I showed the 72mm Kenobi, also from Knightmodels. I solemnly regret not hoarding the whole 30mm ranges when KnightModels released them, but I didn't expect them to drop the license so abruptly. Finding these minis (for a reasonable price) today is quite a challenge, but I take a look on the internet from time to time.
For the moment I think I'll use him for Imperial Assault, here you have a couple of scale comparison shots:
|Seriously, man, I thought we had got over this|
|One day you fight along them, the next day you fight against them|
They are totally into the same scale, so it's a deal. That's another reason why I took this quick paintjob on the mini (one night's work), I was thinking more in having a tabletop ready mini than any other thing. I know some people playing the old WEG game, so I'm in fact curious about the possibilities. Shamefully the old 25mm minis don't match these new 30mm ones (or the other way back, you know), but anyway I'd like to have a look at the game and run a few skirmishes.
Ahhh, all in due time...
For the moment I'm just keeping my mood up for next week's Rogue One release :P
