  1. Sir, thank you for being a leader in this community. I mean, dude. Is that a 3D print?
  2. #75 This is the big one! After returning to X-Wing from gaslands I have much more confidence now with modding and I always hated how ugly the Decimator looked. Now I have one that I am proud to fly after getting rid of that dopey conservatory window. It also looks a lot more aggressive now, see what I did there? 1. Cut off the fuselage, chopped it in half and glued the cockpit back after inverting it. This left a huge hole underneath so I filled it with the fuselage of a IG Aggressor and some blister card plastic to fill in the 2 holes that were left. I also relocated the flimsy turrets so they don't stick out and get bent as easily. 2. I used Acetone to try to dismantle the model so it left some really ugly melted parts that were really hard to restore. Next time I'll try to avoid using it if i can. 3. I was a bit intimidated by the size compared to the other models (looking at you Jedi) but found that it wasn't too bad. The panels make it easy to just move around and build up the shades. 4. Detailing this was quite easy too as i just picked out the small panels in green and and exposed wiring with the metal. 5. First time with Vallejo Metal Color and I absolutely agree with all the rave reviews. This paint is amazingly smooth, thin and opaque. I am considering getting rid of all my Citadel Metals. It's so smooth it feels like there is some enamel spirit in it. 6 I also got these really nice flat metal pieces from a supplementary Gundam kit to be glued on and once you prime over them they look part of the model. Great for adding more details to parts that look too flat. Black Mr Hobby Surfacer 1500 White Mr Hobby Surfacer 1500 dusting from the bottom Combinations of Contrast Black Templar, Contrast Basilicanum Grey, Corvus Black, Abbadon Black, Eshin Grey, Mechanicus Standard Grey and Dawnstone for some paneling Masked off stripes with Mephiston Red Black Tamiya Panel Liner Vallejo Metal Color Magnesium and Moot Green for some tiny details Lothern Blue and Ceramite White glazed for the engine glow Semi-gloss Mr Super Clear all over Ardcoat over the Abbadon Black canopy as usual with added Blood Angels Red for the tint Also on the Engines
  3. #74 Another quick Imperial that I forgot I had. It's a Shapeways print. Again a really simple paint. base - shade - varnish - done. Administratum Grey base Nuln Oil all over semi-gloss Mr Super Clear all over Ardcoat over the Abbadon Black canopy as usual
  4. @anyone that has painted the Slave I - What colors did you use? (ideally Citadel) Please share your formula if you have it recorded. I'm embarking on my own repaint after getting fed up looking at both 1.0 and 2.0 versions and thinking it can be improved.
  5. #73 Had a bit of break from X-Wing because some friends got me into Gaslands but had a game and got slaughtered by triple Silencers so remembered that I never got around to this Empire era Silencer that I wanted to do. 1. Administratum Grey + Nuln Oil = Pretty darn close Imperial Grey look. 2. Those panels on the inside are a real b!tch to get to. 3. No primer, just a matt coat because I really didn't want to paint panels. Administratum Grey base Nuln Oil all over semi-gloss Mr Super Clear all over Ardcoat over the Abbadon Black canopy as usual
  6. This is perfect. I have wondered the same thing and thought I was doing it wrong when my paint started getting watery and running all over the place. But I guess its right. So looks like its 4 thin layers.
  7. haha. Thanks guys. What I ended up doing was just posting on imgur and leaving it at that instead of another thread on some other forum. I jumped into Mice and Mystics and Gaslands. Much more modding and build involved as compared to XWing where I was mostly just doing paint. https://community.fantasyflightgames.com/topic/268394-docking-bay-327-martins-painting-workshop/?do=findComment&comment=3948184
  8. Some local guys I met up with have gotten me into Gaslands so if you care to look I'll link my results there rather than post in-line. https://imgur.com/gallery/3iL929e https://imgur.com/gallery/SKUHuND A lot more build and mod vs mostly just painting for XWing. But great for practicing other new techniques.
  9. These are all brilliant. well done.
  10. Are there any rules against posting other paint jobs as part of your learning journey but on non-X-Wing ships? I've gotten into a couple other games and wanted to share those pics as well.
  11. #70-72 Set of three right here. I always thought the Kimo reminded me of the EVAs (especially 00) so it was a pretty natural scheme to follow then i found these decals and that was it. Get in the Kimo Torani! Neon Genesis Evangelion for the uninitiated. 1. The most challenging part was trying to figure out where to paint the extra lines. 2. Also first try with a metallic to freehand brush streaks. I kept the paint kind of dry-ish. Black Mr Hobby Surfacer 1500 primer 00EVA - Yriel Yellow base, Dawnstone and White scar layer, Wild Sunz Scarlet accents 01EVA - Xereus Purple base, Warpstone Glow layer, Yriel Yellow accents 02EVA - Wild Sunz Scarlet base, Yriel Yellow and White scar layer, Warpstone Glow accents Mechanicus Standard Grey internals Abaddon Black to touchup semi-gloss Mr Super Clear all over Ardcoat over the Abbadon Black canopy as usual
  12. So not a ship in this post but I had this idea when I was doing some minis for Mice and Mystics and found that I only had 1 handle. So i ended up not using it when I faced a queue. So i got about thinking how to have a interchangeable head on the handle. Thats when I came across this idea. Use bottle tops and fix a standard screw top to the handle. So I can start collecting bottle caps and replace them as and when I need them. The cap in the pics has my XWing base on it.
