Imperial Guard Storm Troopers with Grenade Launcher
From : Warhammer 40,00
Armies : Imperial Guard
Unit type : Elites Scale : 28mm metal figure
Manufacturer : Game Workshop
My very first miniature wargames figure that I finished. I used Vallejo paint which is quite different from solvent-based lacquer colors that I usually use. Since Vallejo acrylic is water-based, it cannot be thinned once dried. Thus blending must be done while the paint is still fresh or wet with water. The paints would be blended from dark to light colors; a job that I still require more skill and practice.
I painted this figure without using any color or pattern reference from Game Workshop and I also tested NMM techniques on the pistol and bullets.
