The Nexu are ready to consume whoever gets in their way.

It has been four weeks since I posted the image of the unpainted Nexu, and in that time I have spent pretty much every painting hour working on them. Unfortunately, I didn't get as many painting hours as I wanted, but I really think they have been worth it.

The Nexu are about 12 feet long and when they come towards you, salivating, I challenge any foe, Rebel or Imperial, to stay calm. The minis are around 6cm long.

This is by far the most detailed work I have done with a paint brush, and while my photographing is getting better, it still doesn't come close to doing these figures justice. On the table they look amazing.

Showing the different striped patterns on each Nexu.

You never want to get this close to these teeth.

The cracked ground effect was something I decided to do myself, it was not part of the original guide, but after seeing the Nexu again in Attach of the Clones, I thought the effect would work. Being able to use the different ground colours for the elite and regular deployment group I think really works well.

When you compare these to the unpainted figures I posted earlier, and you see just how amazing the Sorastro guides for the Imperial Assault miniatures are. Once again, I followed them to the best of my skill, and in doing so painted to a quality well beyond what I am capable of coming up with on my own.
