Painting Table – Imperial Assault – AT-ST Part 2 – Magnets

Imperial Assault AT-ST

After the initial salt weathering on the AT-ST, I went to work on the details.

  • The weapons were painted with Army Painter black, followed by a think „wet-brush“ of chain mail metal and, after drying, a wash of Nuln Oil.
  • The entire miniature got a good wash of Nuln Oil. After the wash had dried, I added a few lines and highlights with GW’s Administratum Grey.
  • I also painted the cockpit windows with layers of Warpstone Glow, Moot Green and Gauss Blaster Green, along with a little bit of black and a white highlight dot.

Magnetising the Hatch & Commander

Another thing I wanted to add to the AT-ST was a magnet to the hatch, so I could swap it out for an old Games Workshop Tank Commander, who would serve as arch-villain General Weiss in my Imperial Assault campaign.

For this, I simply filed down the peg of the hatch-bit, so I could use a 2mm magnet and still have the hatch close.

I added a similar magnet to a Tank Commander and glued a counter-part magnet into the hole on top of the AT-ST, normally used to plug in the hatch.

„Surrender, Rebel Scum!“

There is obviously still some clean-up to do, not to mention the base. However, I am very happy how my AT-ST is turning out so far …
