Star Wars Legion Republic Clone Trooper. *This is Sorastro's recipe I have transcribed here. All credit goes to him. Please watch his video and support his work with a like/subscibe/comment.

Prep & Prime

  1. Soft plastic used for Phase I Clones doesn't clean well with a knife, use sanding sticks/sand paper to clean mold lines
  2. Dry Fit arms and glue after completed painting
  3. Prime model in neutral grey. Fairly heavy zenithal highlight with white.

Main Colors

  1. Paint under suit and visor black. Black mixed with water and Daler-Rowney Flow Enhancer.
  2. Paint gloves, weapons, binoculars/strap with Black Templar


  1. Shade armor with mix of 3 parts Apothecary White , 1 part Black Templar , 3 parts Contrast Medium , 1 part Daler-Rowney Flow Enhancer

Heavily coat armor in sections. Wipe excess paint and use a clean/wet brush to clean up flat panels. Contrast medium can be used instead of water to avoid negative interaction.


  1. Mix a hint of Ivory and Corvus Black to a titanium white paint.

Create a "just" off white mix and highlight upward facing flat areas such as the top of the helmet, chest, shoulders and upper leg areas

  1. Apply Titanium White as spot highlight to top of helmet & shoulders


501st Blue (coming soon)

212th Orange

  1. mix Averland Sunset & Troll Slayer Orange with a touch of Corvus Black . Add Daler-Rowney Flow Enhancer to help thin paint.
  2. Highlight orange marking with Averland Sunset Troll Slayer Orange and Yriel Yellow


  1. Use previous white armor tone to add chips and scratches to marking
  2. thin Corvus Black and add scratching
