The latest expansion for Imperial Assault, Jabba's Realm, was recently released, along with a number of add on packs, that I am slowly making my way through. To start with is Luke Skywalker Jedi Knight and Shyla Varad, a Mandalorian, who is one of the expansions player characters. Though what is interesting, is that she is not a rebel, but part of the scum and villainy faction.
Jabba's Realm also introduces Jet Troopers and a new Imperial officer, Captain Terro on a Dewback. The Dewback kit is nice becasue you get two rider torsos, one Terro, and another regular trooper with a lance as seen in A New Hope, though as always with these kits, the lance is a bendy mess.
Like a lot of people have found, the Genestealer Cultist's set makes great Necromunda gangers when you stick a different head on them. Not to happy with the mohawk head, as its a little to big, but it will do.
Recently various toy's from the Force Awakens have started hitting the shelves in discount super markets here in the UK, among them are spaceships from Hot Wheel's. Now the fighters are far to big to be of any real use, but the capital ships are nicely sized.
Imperial and First Order Star Destroyers, fairly well detailed and easy to to paint up with a bit of dry brushing.
This is a First Order Troop Transport, they made it around the same size as a Star Destroyer. Its nice and chunky, and I could really see this as a bulk cruiser, or a carrier in games of Full Thrust or the like.
Hot Wheels ships alongside on of the De Agostini Destroyers that were released a few years back, they scale up fairly well together, though I think the Hot Wheels ships are more detailed.
I figured for my fourth Immolator transport I would go for a command theme, and invert the color scheme a bit. Now the problem with red and white, is that red bleeds into the white and turns pink in places, during painting this wasn't a problem at all, until I painted the flamers, and then suddenly parts of the tank started turning pink...Gah!
I was lucky enough to get one of the new Battle Sister miniatures on day of release prior to Christmas. Over all its not a bad miniature, though why they felt the need for multipart resin instead of plastic is beyond me.
