try saying that ten times in quick sucession!

 

EDIT: This thread will be updated from time to time (more accurately, whenever I get time to do some painting!). Be sure to check back often!

 

Checklist:

X-Wing #1+2 + Y-Wing #1+2           = Post #1

YT-1300#1 "Spear of Alderaan"    = Post #15

X-Wing #3                                        = Post #19

HWK-290                                          = Post #36

A-Wing                                             = Post #41

Spear of Alderaan - MM contest  = Post #46

 

I have a playmat coming soon, so hopefully some nicer pictures will be in order.

 

Right. I want to start up by thanking this community down to the ground for being so goddamn awesome on my Kath Scarlet repaint thread. You guys spurred me on a little to do a bit extra, an I hope to do an update to that thread in the next few days whilst I wait to muster up the courage to stick a brush at it again :L

 

In the meantime, I decided to repaint my two X-Wings and Y-Wings into a dark grey/blue weathered scheme, with a few of the details picked out in different colours (the exposed cables and whatnot on the Y-Wing were begging for it)

 

My idea is that a bunch of Rebel fighters (and thier pilots!) all got together under the banner of one particular minor-hero, and ran with this consistent colour theme, yet in thier own individual manners. I also really want them to look a little worse for wear, with the Y-Wing's in particular looking like they were cobbled together out of spare bits!

 

 

Without further ramble, the Y's:

aaand the X-Wings:

DSC_0270.jpg

 

and for funsies:

Comments and Critisms are very welcome indeed, as always, I am in need of improvement!

Love it. I have a biggs+Blue squad list in mind that I plan to paint a similar scheme. More of neutral steel grey and a shade lighter blue.

Looks great! Now go do more! :)

Awesome!

 

But grey and blue are my favourite colours so I might be biased.

Thanks very much! I think I`'ll be doing most of my Rebels in this scheme, so that's very reassuring!

Very nicely done! That confirms it for me; it has to be done now! :D

YT-1300 #1 done!#

 

Apologies for the threadomancy all, I figured this is better than clogging up and making a whole new topic just for one new model. I can  update this thread as I go, now! :D

 

Without further stalling for time:

I've noticed a horrible mistake or two with the 'rust' i've fixed it now and dulled all the brown down a little as the effect was a little too overpowering. Thoughts? :D

 

UP NEXT: Hwk-260

Daaaang!! Love that Falcon repaint!
I really like what you DIDN'T paint. You added enough to customize it, but not so much that you overdid it. The kinda rusty effect is sick too.

A friend of mine has implored me to tell you that I yelled 'HOLY "&^$£, SABLE JUST LIKED MY POST", as he thought it would be a good laugh at my expense :L

 

Very kind, Ser! I shall endevour to carry on!

Thanks Hoosteen! I really like the whole panelled feel of the Falcon. Cobbled together stuff just looks sexy, so I decided to keep that consistant with my repaint, but with the added blue symbol to really make this ORS look like a member of my ragtag Rebel force.

 

I should really name my YT's...

in flight!

A second ORS and a HWK are half done-ish, plus I still need to finish the above one.

I'm off to a game tomorrow, hopefully I shall take pictures of these guys with a decent backdrop!

 

EDIT: after a few games of lucky dice rolling coupled with the backstory of my repaints, the YT-1300 has been named Spear of Alderaan. Just thought I should share :P

Those look great... If I were a rebel player I think I'd have to personalize mine similarly... but ..... I keep trying to figure something consistent for my Imps.. lol
