Control. Control. You Must Learn Control!!

For May the Fourth, it felt only right to feature Yoda. Grand Master of the Jedi Order. Though Yoda needs no introductions.

This Star Wars: Legion kit is great. You get not one, but two models in the box. Though, the kit has options for 3 different variations of the Yoda model. I chose one with Yoda using the force and one with him jumping with light Saber poised to strike. The latter model wasn’t exactly easy to build, as there really is not any form of instructions, that I found. All you get is a diagram of pieces that in no way shows you how they fit together. So it was a bit of a puzzle. Particularly for the terrain he is jumping off of.

When I finally got everything together, he proved quite easy to paint. I used the Ork paint scheme that I enjoy. The only difference is that I used Biel Tan Green shade instead of my usual Agrax Earthshade. I am happy with the results for Yoda’s flesh. I only ran into some trouble when I tried to paint his eyes on the jumping pose model. I am no good with painting eyes. So I made many mistakes. After I finally got them right, I realized they were too dark. I decided to leave them as is. I didn’t want to mess up the paint job with too many layers.

For his light saber I used Moot Green. Followed by a light drybrush of Wrack White. Finally Hexwraith Flame over all of that. I am not big into lighting effects. So I think the result I achieved with my first attempt at a light saber was pretty good.
