Another little character I picked up to go with my Bad Batch figures, all in the same scale as Star Wars Legends, and standing 35mm tall. I had a bit of an issue after prepping and priming her (voiced by Rhea Pearlman from Cheers), as it must have fallen over at some point, which knocked off the head of the staff she's holding behind her back. Bugger! I looked everywhere for it, using my little Shark vac to suck up every scrap of dust in the workshop, then sifting through it all before binning it. Nothing. I contacted the seller on eBay, 3D-Argent, and asked if it was possible to re-print the staff (foolish, I know), but 10 minutes after I emailed him, I got the urge to check through the little plastic business card box of custom files on my desk. It was right at the bottom, so it must have broken off, taken to the skies, and come down in this box, proving once again that you can never assume something couldn't possibly get to place X. Incidentally, 3D-Argent, or Mark as he's called, was very understanding about my loss and desperation, and I can heartily recommend you look him up on eBay if you're in the market for 3D printed figures. Anyway, she's primed, and I blocked in the basic colours after choosing them from my Citadel Base paints, then used some of their Contrast paints to deepen the shadows before I started painting. I really like the Contrast and Shade paints that Citadel do, and suggest you give them a try if you're starting out painting figures. I've since painted the pencil quilted areas of her jacket, and will be doing the rest of it later, when I have a minute. She's got really weird yellow eyes with horizontal pupils, so they're going to be a treat to paint! She's also got a bit of darker tiger-striping on her head and arms, which will be taxing.
I picked this little figure up on eBay, as I like Ahsoka, and her appearance in The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett was impressive, so I thought I'd get one to go with the Clone Troopers I've got. She had to be younger and in her Padwan days, so this is it. Now I've seen that Fantasy have just released an injection-moulded kit of her for the game Star Wars Legends. Such is life I got it from 3D-Argent, and like all of their miniatures they're well-printed and packaged, but the wrap was a little tight, bending the lightsabers a little, and rather than ruin the figure trying to use heat to bend them back, I clipped them off and replaced them with lengths of 1mm brass rod, which I'd chucked into my Dremel and shaped with a file, then polished with a sanding sponge, narrowing the back end so it would fit into a small hole I drilled in the handle. Getting the drill to stay in the centre was tricky, partly because of the layers, and the fact that the resin is quite brittle at this scale, but I managed it in the end. I've also painted the base and "litter" that came with the figure, which is half of a B1 Battle Droid that she'd presumably just sliced in half. I added a few lead wires hanging out of the cut, which is highly unrealistic, but looks fun anyway Ahsoka is going to get some primer shortly, and then I'll have to research her colour scheme, as I can't remember off the cuff.
