Basing the Imperial Stormtroopers

Stormtroopers were the infantry soldiers of the Galactic Empire. The members of the Imperial Army’s Stormtrooper Corps served on the frontline as elite shock troops, and their loyalty to the Empire was absolute as a result of their training. The stormtrooper armor that they wore consisted of white plastoid plates over a black body glove, and their standard weapon was the E-11 blaster rifle.

In the Star Wars Legion box you get fourteen Stormtroopers, eight (regular) Stormtroopers, four heavy weapons and two unit leaders.

After constructing the Imperial forces I stuck them to their bases. Like my Rebel Troopers I have been using Citadel Sand for the bases of my Star Wars Legion Imperial Stormtroopers.

Here are the four regular troopers. I have two each of these.

There are two troopers with heavy weapons. The kneeling Stormtrooper has the HH-12 rocket launcher. The other is armed with a DLT-19 heavy blaster rifle.

The unit leaders are armed with a blaster pistol.

The next stage will be a white undercoat. I did think about doing a black undercoat. Storm troopers appear to be wearing black with white armour plates. Giving the models a white undercoat doesn’t stop me from painting them (all) black, but I think I will try and avoid that.
