      Upcoming Changes to the Fantasy Flight Games Forums   01/20/2017

      Hello Fantasy Flight Games forum community!   This week, we will be making some important changes to your Fantasy Flight Games community account and the way that you log into the Fantasy Flight Games community forums and web store.   We have been working hard to integrate with the rest of the Asmodee group, and we are happy to announce a unified way to access all the websites and apps made by Fantasy Flight Games, Days of Wonder, and Asmodee!   For most users, nothing will change: you will still log into the Fantasy Flight Games forums using your current login name and password. Only the login user interface will be new.   For a few users, your credentials might be slightly changed. For example, this could happen to users who have both a Fantasy Flight Games and Days of Wonder account, or in the case of conflicting login names across platforms. When these situations occur, special e-mails will be sent to those users with an easy explanation about those changes and what steps to take next. For any of you receiving those e-mails, please make sure to follow the instructions carefully.   Remember, official communications from Fantasy Flight Games or Asmodee.Net will never ask for your password.   What are the benefits for you as a player? Using a unified account to access all of our web services and apps makes your life simpler. Over time, you will see new features emerging, such as keeping all of your friends under a single account, finding friends easily in apps with online play, or developing your personal profile by adding to your board games collection. These are just some of the features that you will see during the next year, once this important technical step is complete.   Important note: The migration of the forums to our new system will take place on Tuesday, January 24th. The forums will be offline for about two hours during that time. Once the migration is complete, older forum posts may look strange for up to 24 hours as we rebuild them in our new system.   We can’t wait to connect our board game communities and build bridges between universes, game systems, players, events, groups, game clubs, and more! This is only the first step in bringing people and games closer together. For more information, read our FAQ at https://asmodee.helpshift.com/a/asmodee-net/.   Best regards,   The Fantasy Flight Games Team

CR-90 Customs

40 posts in this topic

On another thread I posted some alt paint schemes. I ordered two more CR-90s and the one I started first was determined by which paint arrived first.

 

The winner was.... Dragon Red!  Army Painter Base Spray that matches the same name in the bottle paints.

 

First some taping off of areas I didn't want to spray.

Right - work in progress, rememebr....

 

Wash is on and dried, but some areas much darker than I;d like, so some revisions to make once I get some time.....

Shame the red was so covering, if it had been thinner the original shading washes would have come through, saved a lot of work.

 

Yeah - I didn't consider that, but I had intended to wash it it anyways.  But still point taken, and an obvious drawback to the spray method of base coating.

It looks very senatorial. I like it much more than I thought I would. You're inspiring me to paint mine, though I don't yet know what colour I will choose. I will watch your progress with interest.

I was thinking of doing mine up as the color scheme from Battlefront 2 or doing the diplomatic red. Do you think theres any real point to striping it first or were you satisfied with just doing the paint over the original?

i dig the red.

 

using washes on models that big can be a true pain in the buttocks. i personally wouldnt have the reserve and calm demeanor to do it. for me, that would have to be done with an airbrush. would be able to preshade the areas you wanted a little (or lot) darker.

 

looking good though

I dig the senatorial look of the CR90, right down to the stripes. From the original illo the OP posted, they add just the right amount of accent. Something all-red with no accents would be drab and boring, and the SW universe loves its racing stripes. 

 

Washing can be a bit of a pain, but once you get the thinning right and then drybrush up after it's dry to bring out the details, the time an effort is well worth it. Just put on some music and go to town.
