Maximilian Veers was a male Human Major General of the Galactic Empire’s Imperial Army, famous for his leadership at the assault on Hoth in 3 ABY and other battles. Thank you Wookieepedia.
For some reason I didn’t think to look up a source image for Veers, Instead, I relied on my memory – and got Veers’ hard armour colours wrong! (And also Weiss’ – As I painted them at the same time!) Well, in my defence, though – even images online have a bit of colour shift:
Still, even with that variation between steel blue and sea green, how could I have gotten the armour so very wrong?
I guess I was remembering this action figure? Which I never owned as a child?
Or maybe this bust? Which I also don’t own. I guess we can see here that Media depictions of Veers’ armour has been ….consistently inconsistent over the decades.
To be fair, even the action figures have had just a tiny bit of variation over the years…
So my excuse is that i was operating from deep memory, rather than checking the source material. It does bother me a little bit, but not enough to repaint the bastards!
Here’s Veers alongside his fellow Imperials from November’s painting. I never did get that hover-tank thing finished. Or started.
And here’s the money shot – Veers alongside all three Imperial Assault walkers with a slightly Endor-inspired background. Now you know why I featured that scenery piece yesterday. To be fair, though – I’d planned to show it ages ago before I got overwhelmed by work. You also now know why their bases are decorated as they are.
