Hi there. Remember my last post, where I said that this year, I would do this and that, etc., etc.? Well, just forget that, because I clearly have. My hobby output has been dismal thus far, and I’m tired of making plans I can’t possibly deliver upon.
I guess I’ll paint what I paint this year, and that’s about it.
So, here are the remaining expansions to the Bespin Gambit set for Imperial Assault, starting with some ISB (Imperial Security Bureau) Infiltrators.
These two similar-looking fellows are led by Agent Blaise, who is an ISB Interrogator who supposedly was assigned to Bespin to uncover rebel activity…
…namely, the rebel activity of one Lando Calrissian, Cloud City Administrator.
Lando’s colors are pretty bold, especially compared to how he looked in The Empire Strikes Back. I followed Sorastro’s tutorial for Lando and I love the results.
I’ve barely painted anything this year so far. I managed to finish running my year-long Lamentations of the Flame Princess game earlier this month, and just last weekend I got to talk to Roger on my Discord server again, but that’s about the extent of my hobbying. I’m definitely feeling the disconnect from the hobby community that my unplanned absence has caused, and hope to be able to contribute more soon.
Excellent work on all Keith, the effect you’ve achieved inside Lando’s cape, looks like the pattern he had, something I steered well clear of ! LOL I hope the year gets easier for you mate, and you can find some time for hobby stuff when you can, as you are always missed when your not around.
Lando’s cape was pure Sorastro, and involved making a pattern of metallic gold on a base of Castellan Green. It was actually quite easy. Thanks for the kind words, Dave. Now let’s get you into the Discord!
Indeed, I haven’t been doing much late night painting since the illness that laid me up for a couple of days, but hopefully can get back to it soon.
Excellent painting on all these, Keith, and it’s great to see you blogging again! As Dave says, the inside of Lando’s cape looks amazing. I really like the blue-greys on the ISB infiltrators too.
What’s this Discord thing?
Thanks, Matt. It’s my Discord server, dude! I did a whole post about it here! Join, man! You are welcome!
Wow a post! I admit I was a little shocked when I just clicked on here and you’d posted something. Lovely work, mate especially on Lando really vibrant, love it.
Please don’t mention that you’ve been talking to me….I get enough blame around here as it is, I’ll be getting the blame for distracting you from painting/post next!!
I’d certainly like a chat with both Dave and Matt (but bear in mind that he is Welsh so probably doesn’t understand Discord, they tend to still get excited and stare when they turn on an electric light! )
Just Kidding Matt, my son had to sort it all out for me if I’m honest!
Hope to post more often, but I’ve said that before.
Love talking to you, Roger; but it would be great to have everyone in there at once. Let’s not forget about the Crow, too…he’s a member of the server, but I never see him…
