Imperial Infantry

Star Wars Imperial Infantry

Although less well represented onscreen the vast majority of the Imperial war machine consists of basic infantry. Generally less well trained than the elite Stormtrooper, the grey clad infantry man is on many worlds the primary weapons of the empire.

Star Wars Rebel Commandos

Star Wars Rebel Commandos

First seen in Return of the Jedi, then given a whole new spin in Rogue One, Rebel Commandos are the elite ground foces of the rebellion.

Star Wars Rebel Troopers

Rebel Troopers West End Games

A long time coming but I managed to finish and base four squads of Rebel Troopers. Sculpted by Bob Charrette, Julie Guthrie & Johnathan Woods. Lovely minis with a delicate touch on the fabric, very different from the Stormtroopers.

Star Wars Miniatures Battles Game 1

Stormtroopers advance on the hide out

With my newly painted stormtroopers ready for action it was time to dust off the Star Wars Miniatures Battles rules. The last time these had seen action was in the mid nineties so a revision of the rules was in order.

Painting Stormtroopers

Fresh from the cleaners

Like most figure painters I did not relish the task of painting the trooper’s armour.

Stormtroopers, or The Left-handed Dark Side


Perhaps no other sci-fi goon is as recognisable as the faceless minion of evil than the Imperial Stormtrooper. The elite of the Empire whose death’s head inspired helmet and stark white armour represent the cold faceless power of totalitarian rule.

Adventuring Cleric

Adventuring Cleric

This miniature seems to perfectly capture the original D&D cleric, there is even a hint of Easley in the sculpt! The Adventuring Cleric, No. 891 from the Personalities range.

Female Knight

Female Knight

Sold as Female Elf Ranger, No. 885 from the Personalities range. I felt plate armour was too much for rangers so instead went for a human female knight. Her cloak was a bit of a colour experiment and I was happy with the result.



Lovely understated miniature from Juile Guthrie, simple pose and crisp details. The Princess from the Personalities range, No. 842



Sold as Knight with Lion Shield No. 835 from the Personalities range. A classic paladin!
