    I see you have constructed a new lightsaber. Your skills are complete. Indeed you are powerful, as the Emperor has foreseen.

    I've painted up one of the new XQ platforms... I have two. Fully intend to use them whenever I've got a game going. Might grab the XQ-5 to do someday, but I'm pretty happy with how the pair I got turned out. I just wish I could find a more... suitable base.

    Well this is filling a niche that... er... *checks age (god I feel old* *does math*  12-13 year old me REAAAAAALLY wanted.  Model Dreadnoughts, model lancers, all those good and wonderful things that X-Wing, TIE Fighter and X-Wing Alliance along with the whole EU catalogue and then to a lesser extend (because WTF is a Tartan Cruiser?!) Empire At War introduced.  I still play EaW, quite a lot (the Thrawn's Revenge Mod is epic), but to be able to hold in my hands, paint, and generally play with some of these things taps a part of me which I will never let go of.  Because I don't want to be a boring old fart with a mortgage, insurance and an opinion on Capital Gains or Income tax.  
    So kudos to Mel, and all the other model makers, designers, creatives and dreamers who let me dream a bit more myself.
    Having set that if Mel would like to get into processing Shapeways high quality prototypes (I was thinking metals) into pressure-cast resin replicas to increase volume + profit, I'd totally entertain being a part of that.  I've never been a good enough scratch modelmaker to do it myself.

    emsgoof - ha thanks. Those interceptors were shredding my squadrons so fast in that last game, you didn't have much time to see them.

    I finished my comms net GR-75 just in time for regionals. When I went to drill the hole to magnetize the comm dish, the hull just wasn't thick enough to mount a magnet inside. Still looks pretty good. Next up - a jamming field / slicer's tool transport (might switch up the color scheme..) and an expanded hangars Gozanti.
     
    I decided to try out a relayed Biggsball in our CC campaign - here are the the VCX's and extra X-Wings I needed to paint for it. I tried to pull off Blue Squadron from Rogue One, and the one VCX is supposed to match some of my other irregular squadrons and the Mobquet transport.

    Just finished up my second batch of X Wings this morning, good job too as I was starting to run out of ideas for the markings.

    Of course for some Alliance ships, having the paint peeling off is a desirable thing...

    Omg, I should have ordered more!!! Ahahaha.  Sorry. Love it. Came quicker than expected. And the quality, even the lower quality lancer was awesome. Thanks Mel

    Like this. Bases are flat black spray paint from your local hardware superstores ok'd for plastics. I color the edges of my cardboard too with sharpies.

    Well, with my time off thanks to the East Coast Blizzard (At LEAST 2', probably closer to 3' give or take with the drifting), I had some time to do some painting. So, my first attempt, and I've literally only got two colors: Black and Red (ok 3- I've got a white paint marker too). I've got a few better brushes since I started on these, so I have some hope!
    I filled in some other colors with the sharpies. I do dig the change in medium, but it's still a trick to deal with getting the viscosity of the paints right. Too thin and it wanders where you don't want it, too thick and it looks like you're painting with lipstick. The Defenders were a simple hit with matte black spraypaint and the Lancer was a satin sand color hit with 2 or 3 washes prior to painting to allow sharpie to stick.

    A starter sets worth of X Wings now completed so on to the next batch.

    I've varied the markings on these just to keep them a little different and will attempt to do so on the second batch as well.

    May this slapdash collage serve us until I bother to take real photos of this one.  Not entirely sure I like the orange/yellow lights (well red/orange/yellow), but my wife seems to, and chalks that up to me finding them foreign, not my usual blue/whitish.  Who knows, you decide.)
