Voiddragon's Repaints

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

 

I'm relatively new to X-Wing but I have a rapidly expanding collection of both Rebels and Imperials. Thanks in no small part to my predisposition for SMS (Shiny Model Syndrome).

 

Coming from a 40K background I'm big into my miniature painting.

 

I've since done a number of X-Wing repaints so I thought I'll share some of them here with the community

 

First up is my newest acquisition: The Phantom

Thanks all for your kind words!

 

For Wave 4 I actually prefer the TIE Defender as a model but the rules for the Phantom is just pure Amazeballs. Therefore I decided the model deserved to have a cool repaint to match its awesomesauce rules. And I agree with Mr. Sergovan, the cloaking and decloaking is full of awesome sauce :D

 

Anyway next up is my YT-1300 repaint:

The conversion and repaint tutorial for the YT-1300 is available on my blog here and here respectively.

Very sweet, and inspiring!

 

I come from a 40K background also and all that time spent highlighting space marines and painting power weapon effects has paid off. Although I will confess, painting some of my own ships was quite an odd feeling at first- painting marines, and Eldar, and then transitioning to ships took some getting used to.

Thanks gents for the compliments!

 

@Fritz40K - Yeah all that time spent highlighting Space Marines and power weapons came in handy for X-Wing repaints! Remember not all repaints are complete repaints. I intend to spice up some of my ships with additional spot colours only.

 

Anyhow here's my Kath Scarlet repaint:

Anyhow here's my Kath Scarlet repaint:

 

 

 
Wow that looks fantastic!
 
Some questions on the wash step:
 
What ratio of wash do you use?
 
Do you cover the model with the wash or use more of a pin wash technique?

Thanks bro!

 

In relations to the wash ratio: what I use depends on how dirty/worn I want the model to be. For Kath's white Firespray I started with a 1:1 mix of wash and water which gives it a worn out look that's not too dirty. I then followed up with 100% wash in the recessed areas.

 

I had to look up what pin wash was but no I don't use the pin wash technique! I just covered the model with the wash.

 

Hope this helps!

These are all, of course, beautiful.

 

Thing is, I just don't think I could ever own more than one Firespray.  To me, it just such an iconic Boba Fett thing I think having two would just look weird to me.  I feel exactly the same way about the HWK-290.
