I was admiring your art, expecially the weathering you did on the tie fighter solar panels. Do you have a tutorial anywhere for that?



There's one earlier in this thread. Don't be fooled; even with the tutorial, it's still hard to get right.

Rebels: 3 A-wings, 3 B-wings, 2 E-wing, 4 X-Wings, 2 Y- Wings, 2 Z-95s, 1 HWK-290, 1 YT-1300, 1 YT-2400, 1 GR-75 Space whale, 1 CR-90 Corvette


Empire: 6 TIE/LN, 4 TIE Interceptors, 2 TIE Bombers, 1 TIE Advanced, 2 TIE Defender, 2 TIE Phantom, 2 Firesprays, 1 Lambda, 1 VT-49

Chaos isn't a pit. Chaos is a ladder. Many who try to climb it fail and never get to try again. The fall breaks them. And some are given a chance to climb, but they refuse. They cling to the realm or the gods or love. Illusions. Only the ladder is real. The climb is all there is.

Rodent! Just popped in to check on you my friend. Posted your Rebel Fleet on The Black Ocean's Facebook.


I have to ask: How in the hell did you paint a skull on your A-wing!


Beautiful work, as always. Do you have any other painted works?

Looks cool...who cares about "What Is Official" anyhow...Do IT!


I am...It would be stupid easy to make it look great too, just dry brush the thing with a tad of Talcum Powder in the paint and then give it a glaze of Evil Green-Blue.


Very fun I think.



My YT-1300 and X-Wings will have it. But Tie-Fighters really shouldn't. Don't look right to me with Engine Glow...


Especially as that bit at the back isn't the engine. The two red bits are.

EDIT: *reads dates*

The Royal Guard TIE Interceptor winglets are amwesome. When I custom cut my foam later, I am going to make space for winglets in the foam... just in case I can ever get around to adding them to my own models.

I always love when a touch of darkness is brought to the SW universe, and that the ghost ship asteroids do it just right for me.


I wonder how much work would go into doing something like the A-wing one, but with a fractured/blown away cockpit canopy, revealing the empty seat of that unfortunate long gone pilot, for that extra touch of eeriness.

SO... Something else I'm working on... As we all know, asteroids look like they come from a 80s Atari game when they appear on Imperial Scanners.

Galactic Empire: 12 TIE Fighters, 3 TIE Advanced, 9 TIE Interceptors, 5 TIE Bombers, 3 Firesprays, 3 Shuttles, 2 Tie Phantoms, 1 Tie Defender, 2 VT-49 Decimator
Rebellion: 6 X-Wings, 4 Y-Wings, 8 A-Wings, 7 B-Wings, 3 YT-1300s, 2 HWK-290s, 2 Z-95 Headhunters, 1 E-Wing, 2 YT-2400s, 1 GR-75, 1 CR-90

Hey Rodent, how did you paint this little logo? I'd love to throw a few of those around on my TIE's and other crafts

Search through the 24 pages of this... there's a demo on how to do the rebel logo, and he gives instructions on how to do the imp at the same time.  Actually, he might have even given a demo on the imp due to popular request.
