After a long time a post from me again. This time with a miniature of one of my favorite characters from the Star Wars Expanded Universe. It is Mara Jade, the Emperor’s Hand, who later became Luke’s wife after the old canon.
The model was sculpted by Skull Forge Studios (Facebook / Pinshape / Shapeways). It is a 3D model, which Flo has printed to me (thanks to you!). Like my Luke and my Vader, Mara was also provided with a LED saber.
The biggest challenge in the painting of the model was the characteristic latex suit from Mara. Painting black is really an art in itself. Fortunately, I found a great tutorial from Crits Kill People on the Internet that helped me a lot. With the brown leather parts I was inspired by a tutorial as well. In this case, it was a leather-painting tutorial by Massive Voodoo, which I also highly recommend.
Since I do not want Mara dusted in the showcase, but occasionally want to let her run over a Star Wars Legion table, I created a own profile for her. I used the (unofficial) Star Wars Legion character generator from Impact X or SergeDavid therefor. The profile is basically a mix of Luke Skywalker and Jyn Erso. Unfortunately, I have not been able to test her profile in any game yet, but I’m sure I’ll do that soon. What do you think of that profile? Let me know in the comment section below!
