Rebel Heavy Weapons

Rebel troopers, also known as Rebel soldiers or Alliance troopers, were the front-line soldiers of both the early rebel movement and later, the Rebel Alliance against the Galactic Empire during the Galactic Civil War. Initially formed from loosely connected resistance cells, the leadership of Mon Mothma saw them become an impressively armed and trained galaxy-spanning infantry.

In the Star Wars Legion starter box you get fourteen Rebel models, with two each of seven variations. There are two offices, four with heavy weapons and eight “regular” troopers.

The two heavy weapons specialists carry a Z-6 rotary blaster cannon and an MPL-57 modified to fire ion torpedoes.

Having constructed the models, I based them and then using PVA glue used Citadel Sand to landscape the bases.

I then gave the models a white undercoat using Corax White spray.

Initially I painted a couple of trooper models, one with Militarum Green contrast paint and the other Snakebite Leather. This worked for me, so I painted the rest of the Rebel Troopers. I did the same for the four Rebel Troopers with Heavy Weapons, one pair with Militarum Green contrast paint.

I painted the other pair with Snakebite Leather.

Next step will be some drybrushing to bring out the detail and highlights.
