I just wanted to share a couple pictures I just took of the new miniature for Luke Skywalker for Star Wars Imperial Assault.
This is the first variant miniature that Fantasy Flight Games has produced for a named Star Wars character -- that is to say, after releasing a young Skywalker with the original set ("Luke Skywalker, Hero of the Rebellion") in 2014, they have now produced his mature self ("Luke Skywalker, Jedi Knight"). Let's hope more are on the way (ahem, Princess Leia, cough, cough).
|The Original Luke miniature|
I'm normally bad at painting faces to look like real people, but for some reason I'm happy with the way that Luke turned out. It is a testimony to the fine work of the miniature sculptor, Thomas Sincich. Although it's a simple sculpt, the figure has lots of dynamism and energy. My only complaint (as usual) is the bendy lightsaber, so I replaced the plastic original with a thin, straight length of copper wire.
Does he look ready to take on the Rancor?
Thanks for stopping by, and stay tuned for more Star Wars miniatures soon...
Very nice work! Cheers!ReplyDelete
Nice. I agree, more Leia.ReplyDelete
We need a memorial figure, for sure.Delete
Sweet work! Got my Rancor btw. ;)ReplyDelete
I'm glad you went in for Jabba's Realm. I think its a pretty solid expansion. I'd be interested in hearing your thoughts on it.Delete
Oh, once again I'm in this part of galaxy:)ReplyDelete
It's a good part of the galaxy, isn't it.Delete
Love that face and the lighting effects on the saber are sweet!ReplyDelete
Thank you, Dai!Delete

Excellent painting ! Is this the power of the Force ?ReplyDelete
I haven't yet tried to paint with my eyes closed, so I don't think I'm one with the Force yet.Delete
Nice take on that face. The lightsaber is a win!ReplyDelete
Thanks Suber! Your own Imperial Assault work is always a big inspiration for me.Delete
Nicely done, very nice indeed!ReplyDelete
Lovely saber. I should replace some of mine with wire as well.ReplyDelete
Yes, now that I've started using wire, I regret not doing it for my earlier Imperial Assault minis like Vader.Delete
Great work! Love it. I'm Working on some of the old Grenadier Princess Leia models right now. Slow progress, though. Taking my time. Have to do Carrie justice.ReplyDelete
I really can't wait to see what you do with her. Glad you are taking your time to do it right.Delete
To answer your question, he does look ready to face the Rancor. First rate.ReplyDelete
