 Anyone else thinking of customizing their ships (changing colors for blue or green squadron, for example)?

For me it will depend on how well they are already painted.  If I can't do better, they'll stay as is.  However, if, when the Interceptors come out, I may not be able to help myself from painting some 181st stripes on them!

 If they are smart, they will make a 181st TIE Interceptor pack.

 I'm with vadersson, I bet they'll give us some nice repaints in the future.

(A Corsec X-wing would be sweet!)

I'd also go with "blank" ships.  That way you can customize the ship any way you want (just for "squirts 'n giggles").

 I don't think I would do it, but a black x-wing painted like a B5 Omega Squadron would look pretty cool.

If I were to paint board games, I'd want to tackle one of the many games I haven't painted yet - like Mansions of Madness, or Gears of War. The prepainted minis are a big selling point for me because it means I don't have to get off my lazy ass and paint stuff to make it look good

But of course, customized minis are even better than prepainted ones.

This!

 

Assuming I hit the Lottery, as is my plan, I would like to have full squadrons of each color.

 

Im not as up on EU as many of you, could you provide more info on the 181st?

The 181st is Baron Fel's elite Interceptor squadron.  They have distinctive red stripes on thier solar panels.

I understand why FFG chose to make one generic X-Wing and focus on the cards as the main way of differentiating between individual star fighters, but I would like to see X-Wings marked with unique markings:  Red Leader, Red Two, Red Six etc.

Maybe someone will make some aftermarket decals for us…
