More double-posting!

 

I did a very quick repaint of an A-Wing whilst waiting for my friend at my LGS. It's not properly weathered or washed yet, but  here are the results!

My GF9 mat turned up today, so I'll take some nice pictures of everything when I get a chance. Also, I feel an Imperial Repaint thread is overdue...

do you have any kind of walkthrough or advice on how to paint the miniatures and give it the weathered look? as a kid i built model cars/planes and painted, but nothing from my own head. also what paints to use, etc...I really want to try my hand at custom painting these and making my own 'squads'

The weathered look, I believe, came from drybrushing--basically, you get a lighter shade of the base color and put just a smidgen on the brush, and then dab it on; this will catch some of the highlights and a sort of mottled way. If you just brush it on normally instead of dabbing, you end up with some really good highlights instead.

Exactly that!

 

Base colour -> Wash -> Drybrush.

From there, I just add details like chipping and picking out various details.

 

Apologies for the lack of updates here guys, I do have an improvement on the Spear of Alderaan to post as I finally finished it for a painting competition. Also have more Imperials coming...
