My wife and many of my friends really really love Star Wars. Me, growing up in the Netherlands, didn't really have a bond with that franchise, but here, where I live in California, there's a deep rooted love for that world and it's heroes and villains. So when I was able to pickup a box of old minis, I took the plunge and figured it would be fun to paint up for my wife.
Here's the first one, the Wookiee. It's not Chewbacca, but a random Wookiee, with clothes on no less. When I was looking around for a halfway decent paint job, I could not find any online. So I figured by painting one up in my own style, maybe I will inspire someone to also give it a go.
Later the minis were packaged in blisters. The box has ten minis in it, plus a little leaflet. One side shows the mins and a brief description, the other side shows the game stat sheet for all the models. Pretty cool!
The minis are 25mm, so a little smaller than our usual heroic style models, but with this Wookiee you can't really tell, because they are so big any way. The humans are quite a bit smaller.
