I have to admit to being a little disappointed with the troopers - they seem a little too slim (I suppose they could be described as athletic), detail on the equipment is soft and the castings are far from perfect. I spent much of the weekend carving away very prominent 'steps' on all three figures (the legs particularly) and resculpting the folds in the trousers. Despite my initial doubts I think they'll paint up ok and though I didn't waste too much time on painting a face which will be largely obscured it's not too bad.
