Star Wars Imperial Assault: Jawa Scavenger

Star Wars Imperial Assault: Jawa Scavenger

More Star Wars today, though it’s actually an official figure – the Jawa.

If you’re feeling underwhelmed by a post featuring a single, tiny model then imagine how I felt when I opened up the package to find a single, tiny model rather than three or even two of them! Yeah, I know that “Scavenger” is singular, but still…

The figure is pretty much this still in mini form.

A pretty straightforward paintjob really. I painted the robes with a mix of darker browns and more ruddy browns, in homage to my old Kenner Action figures when I was a child. I also painted the webbing belts with darker browns so they’d be a little more differentiated. The Ion Blaster was painted in dark grey with dark metallic highlights.

The base was done with GW’s Agrellan Earth crackle paint, and then drybrushed up to lighten it. I wish I could try to claim this for the Technical August challenge, but I’ve been using this stuff for awhile, so I can’t even fool myself into considering it valid. 😉

  1. Ootini!! Nice job mate, I love Jawas 🙂 Fun fact – Jawas were the inspiration for Kev Adams’ seminal Night Goblins range… I had it straight from the horses mouth a couple of years ago!

  2. Haha, seeing that Jawa takes me back to when I first watched the original trilogy. Lovely work, although I do have one suggestion: I think you should go back and lightly drybrush the lower part of the robes with a beige/ochre colour, so as to create a sense of built-up grime/sand. If you’re feeling adventurous, you could even try to emulate the sand stains from the reference picture you posted on the rest of the model.

    • I might look at the hem, but this figure is so low on the totem pole that the rest of the sand stains are right out of the question – I’ve got blood and pus to finish today! 🙂

    • Thanks man. It’s a pretty simple and straightforward mini (no prizes for guessing why it got chosen to get painted!) Their crackle basing paints are pretty good. (though I do paint and wash it on my desert bases)

    • There’s a pigment-less one/medium sold by Greenstuffworld that they say you can just add your own colour to. I picked it up in my last order with them but haven’t had a use for it yet. Maybe I’ll experiment with it for this month’s challenge and see how it turns out. I just need to find a reason/existing project for it…
      Come to think of it, I’ve had a bottle of Jo Sonja’s crackle stuff sitting around here for years now… I’d just need to find it.

        • Yeah, I’ve only ordered from them twice for the same reason. And now I have a huge pile of GSW hobby supplies I haven’t gotten around to trying out yet! 🙂

  3. Im looking forward to my brother expanding his game with some of the individual figure sets.

    It was his 40th birthday Friday, so he has a treasure hunt to do to find his 3 expantion boxes befire we go camping. Its 5 clues that lead to 5 mat pieces that make no sense unless you overlay them in the right way to make a map of the house, and then a load of other clues on the map pieces written in the the common Star Wars alphabet telling him where to look on the map.

    … We may have to take the map pieces camping with us. It took My wife and our 2 friends over an hour to figure the map out and its a map of OUR house, and she knew where the present was.

    😁

    • I saw your map piece photos the other day. I guess the question will be if so many years of gaming has trained him to get through the map puzzle quickly or not…

      • Initially he didnt seem very happy, despite claiming he actually enjoys treasure hunts. His anxiety made him feel stupid if he couldnt solve everything quickly enough. He did well though, but ran out of time ater finding the map pieces to find the present before we went camping. He did figure the map out though (the 4 most importent pieces at least), so when we had to go and get his boyfriend from the train station the next day, we swung by the house and he managed to find tge presents in the dryer… Eventually. Then he was VERY happy. 😁
