Star Wars: Legion – How to Paint Stormtroopers

Get your new Imperial army on the table fast with this painting tutorial from Teri Litorco.

One of the things that’s fantastic about Legion is how approachable the minis are, especially for those that are new to the hobby. Getting them tabletop ready doesn’t take hundreds of hours, or previous painting experience, to accomplish. If you’re a Star Wars fan that’s considering getting into the game, don’t let the unpainted models scare you. Making them look awesome is easy.

Teri’s hobby videos are great for new and veteran painters alike. Here’s her quick guide to getting the iconic Imperial soldiers table ready – it also that provides some solid tips on how to paint white on any model.

See? Easy-peasy. You can do this!
