I'd been intending to paint the models in my copy anyway but this put the spur to that aim, and so I've made a start.
This took no time and so I decided I could dig into one of the biggest tasks in the box; the Stormtroopers.

After that a relatively thin coat of black was applied with a fine brush to all the relevant areas. Next a little white was retouched and added as highlights to the helmets and limbs, then various vents on the helmet had a touch of dark grey added. Finally, the same was lightly dry-brushed to the guns and gloves for some definition. Job done.
In fact I was able to do all nine of the troopers as a batch quite quickly:

Really pleased with how nice the Stormtroopers have come out, it isn't until you add the black definition that the models come to life. Next up I shall start on some of the models specifically required for the next campaign scenario. I get to do a couple of corkers for that one...
