The last of the Star Weavers are done. I haven’t done enough of the crew to man all of them yet, so I’ll take another set of group pics when they’re done. I’m very impressed with the sphere magnets and the joints they fit into. I would have thought the vehicles would be swerving around as they’re moved, but the friction holds them pretty well together.

The stencil I used for most of the diamonds started to break apart so I got another one and I think it made it easier to keep the diamonds looking like diamonds on the rounded surface.

With the completion of the bolter bikes, the Outriders are now complete. They all have some sort of power weapon, I think they are going to be used as some sort of special weapons unit.

Included is also the Warlord on bike. He is the one doing a wheelie and has a glaive. I was also asked to paint some eagles and one of them is attached to a base. It looks like it’s going to be some kind of marker during the game.

The next batch for this commission will be some Mechanicum models, but they are getting prepped for painting, so I will be painting more Harlequins right now.

The next few bikes are done. They’re the first of the bolter bikers and are equipped with fancy weapons.

Finished another handful of bikes. 6 more plasma bikers with a couple chainsword wielders. There’s a few more plasma bikers to go before I get to the bolter bikers.

It’s been a while, building and getting the pieces ready to paint for these guys. But, since I’ve gotten started on them, progress will be fast. This is the first batch and the other 13 bikes are on the way! Like the rest of the White Scars, there’s a mud/trench theme for the bases so I made sure to include a lot of weathering.

Progress on the Harlequins is slow but still going. The third Star Weaver is now done. I’m particularly proud that I’ve managed to keep the diamonds in mostly the same spots as previous ones and the colour transition is nice and smooth.

It says remaining squadrons as if it weren’t almost a dozen.

A couple of each Republic fighters here. Finished off the Torrents and Arc-170s. The new ones I did are the Y-wings and Aethersprites.

I painted my inverted scheme on a Torrent and Arc-170 to represent the escort for my Consular of the same scheme.

I painted the Y-wings the alternative colour of green since I’m doing blue and white instead of red and white for my Republic fleet. They are called Ferb squad, though I am open to consider Olive, Matcha and Thyme as the name. I painted one of them yellow to represent Anakin and tried to keep to the design similar to the media representations.

The Aethersprites are done to represent the 4 Jedi squad leaders available to use and a couple normal ones. There is Plo Koon, Asohka Tano, Kit Fisto, and Luminara Unduli. With the models so tiny, it was hard to get the unique colour scheme designs that each Jedi has. But I like how they turned out. I am considering getting more Aethersprites so each Jedi can have their own squad.

The second Star Weaver is done with a couple more crewmates. I brightened the orange on the diamonds a bit from the first one and I think I like it more. I’ve updated the old one to be brighter too.

While putting together the next batch of Space Marines to paint, I painted up a Solitaire. He’s going to be one of the leaders so I put in more diamonds across the piece.

I painted the orange in first so I can get the proper transitions before painting in the black diamonds. There was some diamonds added to the cloak so it looks like his trail is melding in with the cloth. Similar to the Shadowseer, I put diamonds on the hood, fading to the black.

The wraithbone masonry he’s vaulting over is a bit of a treat. I made sure to add bright highlights all along the runes, especially in the shade so it looks polished. Quite the dynamic looking mini, very striking when you have the bright diamonds and costuming that we all love with the Harlequins.

I changed up the jump pack on a Chaplain. I think he needed the change so the two Chaplains can be differentiated. It’s painted like the jump pack on the Emperor’s Champion but in black.
