I have a number of Sandtroopers that I'm doing for a diorama and have a few left over which I have and will be doing small dio's for, this first one depicts a Sandtrooper Squad Leader in an area in MOS ESPA.

The building section depicts a typical structure that you would find on Tatooine. The only real difference is that I diceded that I would make the walls a little more of a yellowish colour due to the different texture and colour if sand that you would find in different parts of a planet.

As always once I got the look and feel I wanted for both the figure and diorama they were painted and weathered using Vallejo and GW paints and weathered using Vallejo paints and pastels.

RECIPE

Sandtrooper - The Sandtrooper is from the Hasbro Vintage 2010 line and was given a pauldron from a VOTC Sandtrooper, I left the articulation alone on this figure as I will be only supergluing and putting the joints up on figures on my larger dios.

I added thin leather straps to the pauldron and MP40 mag pouch. I cut the old MP40 mag pouch that was attached to the VOTC pauldron and added a new MP40 pouch from a WW2 1/18 Forces of Valor German figure.

The Base - the base is from a two dollar shop, the walls of the buiding are pieces of foam glued together and then a mix of plaster and woodglue was applied over the top of it. The pipes and bits and pieces on the walls are old pieces from an old Star Trek kit, 1/35 parts and two straws from the pits box.
