    Indigo Squadron, standing by!

     
    I love my A-Wings.  I normally play 150 points and it's a rare Rebel list that can't benefit from a couple of cheap, super fast blockers to get up in everyone's grill.  And they're so pretty.

    The canopy took me *forever* but totally worth it.

    Firespray completed for my scum.  This one took a while.  The canopy by itself took longer than some of the ships in my fleet, but I'm very happy with the end result.
     

     

     

     

     

     
     
    And the fleet to date:

    So far I've only played Imperials and Rebels, but I bought a pile of Scum to get started on that fleet.  I went back and forth on how to paint them.  My fleets are basically on a spectrum: Imperials are very uniform and very clean; Rebels have some repeating colours and themes but a little more variety and a little grime.  
     
    The scum are going to be the other end of the spectrum.  Every ship will have its own colour scheme and patterns, but the fleet will be tied together by lots of mismatched bits and exposed metal with really heavy weathering.  Also, they're all going to have orange canopies, inspired by the Fett scum card (if not quite as detailed as some talented folks have done).
     
    First one done: Z-95.
     

     

     

     
     
    Painted this guy up yesterday while watching the Stele twitch stream in the morning and then the Paradox Comics-n-Cards stream of the Fargo, ND regionals in the evening.  The painting forum got a shout-out from the Fargo regionals stream, and it was a fun set of games to watch, too.  Go check out the archive on Twitch.  Cheers guys!

    YT-1300!  One of my favourite ships.  I really want a second but I ended up being glad that I waited, once the new one was announced.
     
    Some conversion work on this guy.  I made this one into a 'slick' by removing the antenna and paneling over the mechanical recesses.  The effect is a little subtle but I like it.  The paint scheme plays around with some of the geometric aspects of the design.

    Thanks for all the positive comments and helpful feedback!
     
    My YT-2400, the Slipstream.  This scheme took quite a while to finish but I'm pretty happy with the result.

    So, you're the Emperor.  You rule the entire galaxy, more or less.  Most important person alive, maybe most important person ever.  Are you going to ride around in the same vanilla white Lambda taken by any podunk Admiral on his way to an exit interview with Vader?  Of course not.
     
    You're gonna bling it.

    TIE Adv Prototype.  This guy was a blast to paint and fun to play so I'm definitely getting at least one more.



     
    TIE Interceptors.  The basic Interceptor is just done in the same scheme as the basic TIE.  For the Royal Guard TIE, I decided to leave the original red, paint in white panels and gold canopy around it, and then add some grey and gold embellishments.  The whole thing works much better than I was expecting, I'm really pleased with it.

    Some more B-wings and the K-Wing.  The K-wing was a mod, to remove the lower sub-wings and add some groovy fins.

    Start off with some rebels.  First up, various small fighters.  The scheme on these guys was a bit of an experiment as some of the fighters would be partial repaints and some would be full, so I had to adjust my style to make both work.  I was aiming for something that looked like a fleet but nowhere near as consistent as the Imperials.  Also, grungy.
    (Edit: replacing a bunch of my pictures because photobucket can go die in a fire ...)
