CT29 / 63-9018 (Gunnery Specialist - 41st Elite Legion)

CT29 / 63-9018 is a gunnery specialist assigned to Sarlaac Battalion A of the 41st Elite Legion, under Commander Gree.

Parts: Head (Clone Trooper), Torso (Clone Trooper), Arms (Clone Trooper), Legs (Clone Trooper), Blaster Rifle (Galactic Marine), Helmet Pads (AT-TE Tank Gunner).

Supplies: Brushes, Polly Scale paints and Testors Gloss-Cote.

Reference: Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.

Step One: The basic figure was not changed at all. This is another addition to my group of figures from the 41st Elite Legion.

Step Two: The paint scheme is that of the 41st Elite Legion's regular Phase II armor. After painting the armor, I also applied battle scarring using several different techniques, including drybrushing and scraping off small areas of the original armor markings. To accomplish the scuffing and scratching that is common to all military equipment, I used the edge of my X-acto knife to carefully scrape all of the armor's prominent edges. These are the areas that are most likely to brush against things and become worn or scratched.

Step Three: A light coat of Testors Gloss-Cote was applied to protect the paint and enhance the shiny appearance of the armor.
