With all the essential colors to depict the troopers and vehicles of the Galactic Civil War, these paint sets are the perfect entry point for miniature painters looking to add some thematic flair to their Star Wars: Legion armies. Containing a total of 34 paints, two distinct washes, and two fine tipped brushes between these three sets, you’ll have all the tools you need to take your armies to the next level.

A Personal Touch

Wherever your Star Wars: Legion battles take you, the unpainted miniatures you’ll find in the Star Wars: Legion Core Set and many expansions are the perfect canvas for you to add your own personal look to your Rebel and Imperial armies. With the paints and washes in these sets, new miniatures painters will have everything they need to take their first steps into customizing their troopers and vehicles. Experienced painters, meanwhile, will find paints that help bring their miniatures into the Star Wars galaxy more than ever before.

No matter what your experience level, the Core Paint Set is the perfect place to begin painting your Rebel and Imperial units. In addition to sixteen paints in colors seen frequently throughout the Star Warsgalaxy, you’ll also find two washes perfect for adding rich depths of shading to your miniatures. Rounding out this set are two fine-tipped brushes versatile enough to handle every step of painting, including base colors, detail, and highlights.

For those looking for even more color options, the Imperial Paint Set and Rebel Paint Set help you add more thematic flair to your armies with common colors found on either side of the Galactic Civil War. Within the Imperial Paint Set, you’ll find ten additional paints—including Speeder Bike Brown and Sullust Stone—that help you depict the troopers and vehicles of the Galactic Empire. Among these paints are one wash and one gloss coat for adding shading and a finishing touch to your miniatures.

Similarly, the Rebel Paint Set adds ten colors essential to bringing your Rebel Alliance units to life in your collection, including Fleet Trooper Blue and Rebel Camouflage. With these paints, you’re free to add your own personal touches to your miniatures, creating a look for your army that’s uniquely your own. Included with these is a Strong Tone Wash perfect for adding depths of shading to your miniatures.

Between the wide variety of paints and tools they provide, these paint sets put the power to create a unique army bursting with color in your hands!

Create Your Army

You’ve assembled your forces and outfitted them for battle. Now it’s time to add your own personal touch to your Star Wars: Legion army.

Bothan Report: Creating Scarif Bases for your Legion Units

One of the most exciting parts of painting miniatures for me is creating a compelling base for the miniatures that really puts the icing on the proverbial cake when it comes to presentation.

Since my Warhammer days I have always been fascinated by some of the creativity I saw with bases and while the default base back in the early 90’s was simply static grass or green flock I always thought there was more you could do.

Corvus Games Terrain: Making Really Simple Terrain Buildings

Taken from Corvus Game Terrian:

Terrian is pretty much essential for an immersive tabletop gaming experience. Imagine the latest blockbuster video game without the jaw-dropping backgrounds and environments, and just dull, lifeless grey boxes to run around. Just wouldn’t be as fun, would it?

As much as I’d like everyone to purchase 3D printed models – from here preferably ;), not every gamer is in a position to do so, or just doesn’t have the time to get 3D printed models looking great, or really just wants something cool on their table today. Continue reading →
