New troops back from the cleaners
It's been a couple of weeks and the cleaning and bleaching process has now all been done on the latest lot of imperial figures. The stormtroopers all came out really nice and white. A couple still have slightly yellow limbs, but this is due to the type of plastic they are made from.
One of the At-At commander figures was a really really light version to start with. The yellow tint came out nicely from his body and now matches the rest of him.
I have touched up the pain on the bulk of them as they where heavily play warn. The final result is great, and another load of figures to add to Yellow squadron.
Note: I did find one new glitch while de-yellowing this lot. On one of the figures boots, I ended up with a blister in the original paint. I'd not seen this happen before. Not a problem for me as it required re-painting anyway, but worth keeping and eye on.
