Bandai 1/12 Sandtrooper pic heavy

Recommended Posts

Well it's been a while, (had a bit of modelling mojo loss), but finally i've finished my Sandtrooper, 

the construction of this build couldn't have been simpler, And has been covered by other folk on here , for example Andy Moore, whose work has been an inspiration whilst working on the various Bandai stuff i've got stashed.


The whole figure was assembled in sub sections where it was possible and then sprayed with a couple of coats of Vallejo SATIN varnish, weathering was mainly MiG engine oil for the darker coloured sand and smudges, and MiG Gulf war Sand weathering powders for the lighter tones, The supplied Decals were used for the various helmet markings, and the pauldron was painted with Vallejo Model Air 'aged white'. 

Base was covered in Tamiya surface texture 'paint' to which fine sand was added with copious amounts of watered down PVA glue, then painted in various sand/desert colours, and a few Model Builder grass tufts added for a bit of variety. 


He was finished in a style to replicate the Sandtrooper named as Davin Felth...'Look Sir !..Droids'.

anyhoo, onto the pics.


Comments appreciated..

Nice, really nice. The weathering in the blaster is very subtle and looks spot on - how did you do it?

Thanks Chief, 

The Blaster was painted satin black, the details were picked out with a little dry brushing with silver and with some graphite from a standard HB pencil,..(rub it over some sandpaper or a sanding stick, it'll create a pile of graphite dust...) applied by rubbing a finger into the powder and then applying to the surface...

Great looking Sandie!

Have always liked the Sandtrooper, hence doing one for the UK Garrison of the 501st:

Great attention to the little details that differentiate the Sandie from the normal Stormtroopers, and nicely weathered too :)

Great looking build. The weathering's fantastic, as is the base.
