While on a routine patrol two Sandtroopers and their Probe Droid come under attack by Dune Raiders. The attack was quick and precise taking down one of the Troopers and the droid in seconds, the remaining Trooper takes cover behind the downed droid and starts firing back and he quickly realizes that he is now PINNED DOWNED.
Sandtroopers - Are from the newer Hasbro figures with the ball jointed leg, the legs were cut off and repositioned as the ball joint section makes it much easier to position the legs and give them a more realistic look.
The dead Trooper has had a small hole drilled into him and mix of matt black and hull red was painted around the hole and then some torn cotton wool was used to simulate the smoulder.
The arms, hands, head and mid sections were repositioned to get the posture I wanted then the joints were superglued and then puttied up. Once the putty was dried the figures were and equipment were painted and weathered using Vallejo, GW paints and chalk pastels.
Base - Is a picture frame I picked up from a two dollar store, the sand is a mixer of plaster of paris, PVA glue and fine river sand. It is mixed in together then paint is then poured into the mixer and saves time on painting afterwards.
The moisture evaporator and probe droid are both from Hasbro and have been painted and weathered using Vallejo, GW paints and chalk pastels. The probe droid was given two blast holes and this was done the same way as the dead Trooper.
