|"Never tell me the odds."|
This 28mm plastic model of General Solo is made by “Wizards Of The Coast” and is model 15 from the Master Of The Force expansion for the manufacturer’s Star Wars Miniatures Game. In order to ‘cover-up’ the miniature’s pre-paint scheme I initially undercoated the entire figure with a layer of “Vallejo” White and then painted his trousers with Charred Brown. I then washed this area with “The Army Painter” Strong Tone Quickshade.

Han’s shirt was initially undercoated with a couple of thinned down coats of “Vallejo” White before I ‘inked’ it with some watered-down Strong Tone Quickshade in order to create some dirty shading. His flesh was painted with a combination of “Vallejo” Heavy Skintone and “Citadel” Reikland Fleshshade. I then added some highlights with more “Vallejo” Heavy Skintone. Finally the aging Rebel’s hair was created using an initial application of “Heavy Bluegrey” followed by a wash of “Citadel” Nuln Oil, a dry-brush of more “Vallejo” Heavy Bluegrey and finally some White highlights.
|At the Earth's core WIPs - Just some basic undercoats with some charcoal shading on 'Peter Cushion'|
These three terrifically charismatic 28mm metal miniatures from “Antediluvian Miniatures” have been quickly prepped, based and undercoated. Obviously the two male models are clearly inspired by the 1976 movie “At The Earth’s Core” starring Doug McClure and Peter Cushing. Whilst the fur-clad female is Raquel Welch from the 1966 'dinosaur flick' "One Million Years B.C." The company also do a smashing range of ‘Crystal Palace Dinosaurs’; all essential purchases once I’ve completed the company’s adventurers.
