Hi guys! I know I've already posted a thread known as "Shadow Squadron", but I got bored with them and decided to do a repaint. I do intend to run a campaign using all twelve X-Wings, but here are the first four (incidentally the four I already had :P)
 
SPOILER ALERT!:
If you haven't got to X-Wing: The Bacta War yet, turn back now!
 
Rogue Leader - Wedge
 
Rogue Five - Gavin
 
Rogue Seven - Tycho
 
Rogue Nine - Corran
 
They're still WIP, I need to neaten up the trim on Corran's X-Wing and the checks on Wedge's may need to be smaller, but I have to dig my magnifier from the loft before I do that!
 
Any and all comments are appreciated, thank you!

Try a sharpie paint pen.  They come in different tips and work amazing.  Less time cleaner results.

Yes, I'll be doing all twelve, a handful of Tal'dira's Chir'darki (count as TIE Interceptors) and the three Gand Bombers as and when cash and model availability allows.

In the comics, the Rogue Squadron pilots fly generic X-Wings, the only real difference between them is the Squadron Markings (red dashes indicating number behind the trim on the S-Foils).

Some of them have unique markings. Wedge is one of the few who blows their x wing a lot. They have yellow markings, red markings, the roque number and other tiny stuff. Loving the paintjobs here.

Those are incredible!  What a great series of books.  I was just thinking that a great expansion set would be to give us pilot cards for a group like Rogue Squadron.  Wraith Squadron would be a fun mix too.

As this is for a campaign I'm writing, there will be Rogue Squadron pilot cards (all unique), as well as cards for former-Imperial pilots and THDC pilots :)

And I'm done! All eleven X-Wings complete!

Rogue Four - Riv

Rogue Eight - Nawara

Rogue Ten - Ooryl

Rogue Twelve - Aril

 

I know they aren't perfect, and they aren't the best paintjobs on the internet, but they were fun to do, and I'm really happy with how they come out. They're going to look AWESOME all together, I can tell! :D

Excellent work.  I hope that there is a Rogue Squadron expansion deck from FFG later on.
