    Not just you. Put in some stuff I wanna buy (starter and scum/rebel conversions) but I still have access to cards in, say, the new Millennium Falcon pack. It doesn’t seem to have an indication of ownership either.

    Sorry for the late response, I must have missed your comment! The dirty/rusty steel is pretty simple actually.
    1. First layers are Citadel Iron Breaker steel color. Usually two coats will do to cover up the factory paint.
    2. Multiple layers of Citadel Seraphim Sepia wash. I'm pretty liberal with its use and the multiple layers make some interesting weathered effects.
    3. Sponging/selective drybrushing of Citadel Typhus Corrosion technical paint. This is the darker elements, which I tried to hit in the edges/depths/areas that would get dirtiest. I used it sparingly, as it is a dark brown that could have overpowered the other wash fairly easily.
    4. Light lines of Citadel Ryza Rust dry paint. This is for the orange, actively rusting areas. Similar to the Typhus Corrosion, this was put into just the edges of the panels.
     
    Up Next- Blooddrop Kimogila. 
    I apologize for the bad pics, this ship did not want to be photographed as every pic I took looked horrible. Painted similar to a Fang I did earlier, this Kimogila was a ***** to paint. No scheme seemed to work, so I fell back on this a as a plan D or so. Not very good, the blood drops looks better on ships with more angular panels, but it'll at least look decent on the table. Thanks for looking!

    My Hutt kajidic, the Cuul'ti, run a securities service for merchant escort/payment retrieval as part of their front business the Cuul'ti Merchant Services (CMS). Using a "company-store" mentality, they recruit and hire various independent enforcement agents (as well as having a sizable force of direct kajidic soldiers)- these agents will wind up selling portions of their ship's rights to CMS in return for non-contract covered repairs/upgrades/etc... This Lancer is in the process of being fully taken over, as the CMS crimson and bronze paint is on over half of the ship. Still, you shouldn't sign up for the job if you don't read the fine print!   Anyway, I've derided the Lancer in the past, due to it's Star Trek looks, but painting it was fairly fun and has given me a little more acceptance for the thing. Still some minor touch-ups and cockpit painting to go, but all-in-all I think it is ready to hit the tables. Too bad it is in a fairly lackluster place right now...   Up next is four more Uglies, the Y-TIEs and customs, and finally finishing my Hound's Tooth/Jumpmaster paintjobs that have been dragging for two months now.

    I did play that weekend, unfortunately using a different fleet, so I was not able to test this one.
    During the Christmas holidays I found a bit of time for some painting. I've probably posted it before, but I really like the painting of Ben Komets and how he shows the tricks in his videos: 
     
     
    So with these videos on my tablet I started practising washes, loaded brush and feathering techniques. Please keep in mind, that I'm not an expert on these techniques, this is just my first attempts.


    It still looks to smudgy for my taste, but perhaps that all blends a bit better after some more feathering of nicely thinned paint.
    Again a close up of 1 loaded brush technique and 2 of the first feathering

    So, brief history, in the US Navy, the Commander Air Group or CAG is permitted to have fairly outlandish paint schemes for espirit de corps. Naturally, when I picked up 3 of the new T-70's I picked a selection of CAG aircraft to copy, specifically: VFA-195 Dambusters VFA-41 Black Aces VFA-103 Jolly Rogers   Enjoy

    I haven't tried it in months but just gave it another chance. Is there really still no way to only show ships/pilots/upgrades owned from your collection or am I missing an option somewhere? I assumed that would be added at some point as I find it utterly worthless otherwise.

    Hi everyone,
    My nine year-old daughter and I fell in love with the X-Wing miniature game a few months ago.

    I've had an amazing time gaming with her, and I became so inspired by the amazing repaints that I've seen in this and other forums that I decided to try to learn how to repaint my own ships. I'm a middle-aged guy, and I hadn't picked up a paintbrush since 2005 or so. I wasn't exactly an amazing painter back then, and my middle-aged eyesight and trembling hands aren't helping things! That said, I'm really proud to show off my beginning efforts. I'm really trying to focus on improving my brush control, using thinner paints in more layers, and learning to highlight my ships. Progress is slow, but I'm seeing improvement with every ship I paint.


    First, here's a picture of the custom X-Wing table that my daughter and I painted together. It's a 4x6 sheet of wood that we painted with a deep black/grey chalkboard finish. It's a great surface for playing on: It has just a little bit of grip to help avoid accidental bumps and unintentional ship movement, but it's still smooth enough for easy ship movement. We painted a 3x3' fight area, and use the rest of the board for token stores, our cards, etc.
    My daughter and I fly ships we think are cool regardless of whether they're "good" or not, and so our squadrons are atypical and weird. 
    My daughter's first request was for me to repaint an imperial squadron of her favorite ships: the TIE interceptor, TIE defender, and TIE phantom. She gave me the squadron's name ("Viper Squadron") and asked for a green paint job. I obliged.


    This has been a really tough squadron for her to fly effectively, but my daughter loves these ships to death and is reluctant to fly "easier" squadrons.

    TIE Phantom


    TIE Defender

    TIE Interceptor
    \\\
    I took on the HWK-290 next, not because I'm especially fond of the ship, but because I greatly disliked the stock paintjob and wanted to practice with a lighter color palette.

    \\\
    I'm working on a Firespray-31 "Marauder" repaint. It's such a fun paint job, and I love the idea of a Kath Scarlet's Binayre Pirates squadron. I'm still trying to design that list, but here's the latest WIP shot of my Firespray-31. There are a lot of issues with my paintjob, but it looks good on the table. I have two more Firespray-31 models on order: I'm going to attempt to redo the Kath Scarlet paintjob again with the lessons I've learned, and I have another colorful bounty hunter colorscheme I'm dying to try. Any tips on how to get a nice glossy canopy would be greatly appreciated! I have 1/700-scale WWII battleship deck guns on the way in the mail to replace the broken cannons on this ship model, and will post an updated shot when I'm done repairing and touching this ship up.

    \\\
    For my personal squadrons, I love the Rebel A-Wing and B-Wing models. Here are a couple of shots of my A-Wings. My B-Wings are in progress using this same color scheme (dark grey / light grey / crimson canopy):


    \\\
    I know that my painting technique still has a *long* way to come, but I've gotten a lot of joy out of seeing peoples' wonderful repaints and want to contribute back to the fantastic community of gamers and artists who have been so inspiring to me.
