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.

Already planning on it, Green and Black X-Wings
Corran Horn's from CorSec?

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.

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?

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…
