    This past week I've been painting up this AAT for my Separatist force for Star Wars Legion. Here's the finished tank:

    Here's some pics of the various tank commanders available for the AAT.

    First is the OOM-Series Droid that comes with the kit:

    Next is a T-Series Tactical Droid which is 3D printed:

    And lastly there is the named character Lok Durd, also 3D printed:

    I've also got some shots of the base too:

    Amazing work, mate. As always a very high standard and realistic weathering :artist::artist:

    Totally totally awesome dude.

    If you don't do this professionally for commissions then you totally should.

    Thank you! I appreciate that :)
    I think I paint far too slowly for commission painting. I'd also be worried about it making me resent painting if it was work instead of a hobby. Maybe one day I'll try it out though.

    Excellent Star Wars Prequel content as always! I particularly like the additions of a couple of 3D-Printed characters to command your AAT, are there official FFG rules for those or have you written your own?

    Thank you :)
    The kit comes with rules for the Tactical Droid and Lok Durd but no minis unfortunately. Thank heavens for 3D printing haha. I've got a Clone tank to paint up too that has rules for being commanded by Aayka Secura and Plo Koon but no minis for those either, so I have 3D prints for them too.

    That tank is gorgeous! Love how it looks in green, I will totally consider getting one of these were I to ever go down the Legion route.

    Great looking 3D printed characters to ride the rank too; and nice objective markers!

    I've finally managed to clear these 12 ARC Troopers off my painting desk. I like how they turned out in the end but I didn't really enjoy the process of painting them. Hopefully I'll have more fun on my next project.

    I painted different designs on each ARC Trooper's armour and kama to give them some individuality and personality. I also decided to go with green glowing visors to look like night vision and sell the special forces aspect of the units.

    IMG_20220728_214450.jpg

    These are split into 3 units. Firstly, a small sniper strike team:
    IMG_20220728_210208.jpg IMG_20220728_210304.jpg IMG_20220728_210609.jpg IMG_20220728_210700.jpg IMG_20220728_210800.jpg IMG_20220728_210845.jpg

    And here's the other 2 full units:
    IMG_20220728_211653.jpg IMG_20220728_213405.jpg

    Pics of the individual troopers will be in the next post.

    Awesome.

    I love what you've done with the visor. What paint did you use for that? Fluorescent?

    Excellent work! Super clean as always, I like your paint scheme on these troops and the green visors works really well. Nice weathering effects too

    Amazing work. I love the texturing of the fabric and the weathering, it makes them look realistic.
    The green visors are a great highlight in between the colorscheme.

    Keep up the great work

    Grrr, Imrahil
