More Star Wars figurines
As I mentioned in my last post, I'm helping a friend assemble this scale model of Jabba's palace. It's not a fabulous kit (I think he said he bought it for $3.00 on eBay) but it is kind of fun and I'm enjoying a little change of pace. Anyways, Friday I went over to his house and banged out four figures in a couple of hours.
Did you know that practically every person who has appeared in a Star Wars movie has been given a name and a backstory? It's true, "overweight dancer at Jabba's Palace" is actually Yarna d'al' Gargan. The detail on these figures isn't fabulous, and they are about 1/72 scale, but I managed to do a passable job on them. I don't do a lot of painting in scales smaller than 28mm, so I don't really know how to do points for them, but since they are close enough, I'm giving myself four points. After all, they are aren't much smaller than a goblin.
