One more Star Weaver crew was done, but the star of this post is the Jetbike. Set on a sphere magnet, like the Star Weavers, the jetbike is looking nimble and floaty. The underslung weapon and the riders aren’t glued on.

Continuing with my repaints, I have finished this Venator. Blue and white scheme with a Republic insignia thrown in there. I also added more engine glow and a glow from the under-hanger. I kept the dark wash in the creases on this one, so it’s a bit different than my other ships. I’ll say it’s a Venator II. My other Venator will have the softer sepia wash like my Acclamator and so will be a Venator I.

There are two Apothecaries that are assigned to the army. Naturally, they get jump packs for more efficient door-to-door surgery. They also get fancy squiggly spears. I think the next White Scars minis will be the dreadnoughts.

These were a relatively fast batch. Only 9 in this unit. The Ursarax are done! I really like the saturated yellow on these. It’s so vibrant and eye-catching. There is plenty of blood splatter to imply how many infantry they turned to paste.

I did a batch of these with pointy claws in the last Mechanicum commission and now more are needed, but with power paws. Hazard yellow with black accents and a good amount of iron and brass. You can tell they’ve gone to work already due to the blood splatters. I’m told a squad of these are a terror on the battlefield.

For the first time in forever, I have recorded my painting on one of the Ursarax. Over the next little while, I will be editing that video and posting it on Youtube. Hopefully, my new desk setup and lighting work out so the footage is usable.

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.

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.

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.
