    All I know is that it will finally set a standard for supper weapons in Armada, allowing me to to reverse engineer a half-dozen other super weapon ships from legends! 
    Anybody else notice Mel's Eclipse?
    Everything I have ever wanted in Armada is almost within my grasp!

    I'm holding out hope for Kyle Katarn & Jan or Jyn Erso and crew to use as custom heros. Also gender swap versions of the existing heros would be nifty as well.
    For those who haven't bought any of Mel's stuff before I own some of his Armada ships and love the detail.

    I couldn't decide on a peg, and since I made this thinking of a decorative diorama, I thought I would let people figure out how they place their ships around the SSD.

    Here is the thing pieced apart for you guys who are going to want to custom work. I can take more pics if you need and explain in detail if you have any questions.

    melminiatures reacted to BozoLtD in SSD Repaint   
    So I got a hold of my SSD and instantly did not like the color scheme which has been a theme with most of the models. Over the last couple of days, I went through stages to get this monster painted. I am pleased and figured I would share with the community and give other ideas. Over all, it was not difficult just took time. 

    Stage 1:
    Simple base coat using Chaos Black basing spray. I did not do any stripping. 



    Stage 2:
    I really liked how this turned out. I almost stopped here. I used a dry brush technique with Dawnstone Dry for the outer layer and Mechanicus Grey (Air) for the middle/command deck. 


    Stage 3.1:
    You will see my SD next to the SSD here. This is why I went with the red strip. I have this theme on a lot of my ships. I like it though I am thinking of shading out the red that goes over the mid section. I also plan on adding the imperial symbol on the wings or adding aurebesh like on my SD. 
     


     
    I hope you all enjoy! Let me know what you think.

    Just saw this from Mel, if this is what a Starhawk will look like in canon, very impressive!

    #24 2 for 1 deal! (I didn't get around to uploading but had proceeded with this because I was excited to get to it) Another Shapeways model. Better than the last but still has a bit of fuzz along some edges that can only be seen after the primer went on, especially at the starboard intake. This will be my default Corran if I ever fly him...   1. First time with Green I think and its very splotchy. 2 good layers and my first time using a colored shade to even out the uneven parts. Quite satisfied once that third layer of shade went on. 2. These are also the thinnest lines i've ever freehanded. Too thin for tape. Big advice: Get a magnifying lamp. I'm really sure this has allowed me to level up significantly.   White Mr Hobby Surfacer 1500 Warpstone Glow layers
    Biel-Tan Green shade Ardcoat over the Abbadon Black canopy as usual

    #23 It's been a while due to house moving and packing but the paints are finally out again and i've decanted into dropper bottles too. Got my hands on some Shapeways from Mel and knocked this out. Disclaimer, The ships are way cooler than the story...   1. Shapeways is a bit dodgy. The left bottom half of the wing is all rough and there is hardly any detail at all so not to happy with that part. On the flip side (literally) the detail of the wing is pristine and every edge is so crisp and clean. You can still see some of the 'layering' effect from the 3D printer. What do you guys normally do? Am I supposed to sand these down first or something? 2. Otherwise this was a really simple clean straightforward job. Just fills and layers. No patterns or fancy masking. Just a bit of detail work around the cockpit and the grey squares on the panels. 3. Funny how now that I've looked at these magnified photos on my computer I can see a few areas where I messed up but I completely missed it all with my eye. Maybe I should take proper photos...   Black Mr Hobby Surfacer 1500 Abaddon Black Base on the panels Mephiston Red on the frame Mechanicus Standard Grey for the details and panel squares Nuln wash over the panels with a bit of black mixed in to darken the panel squares Ardcoat over the Abbadon Black canopy as usual

    I am in an area where there is currently no Armada at all, but the FLGS just moved to a new location and the finally have some table space. I have run some demos and got some good reactions. Problem, because there isn't a current group the owner has zero Armada product on the shelves.  Owner said if I am going to keep running games he will get some product in the store and asked for my recomendations! I need to keep this controlled and I think I know what I will recomend, but the power of the hive mind is great, and other ideas are always useful. Core box is obvious, if you could only pick 12 expansions total to get started and balance both factions, what would you pick? Thanks to @Crabbok in advance for your videos in this area!
