Excellent repaints Polda! How you got them to match up so perfectly, I'll never know!

Will be keeping these a bit simpler than the usual stuff with a nice brown and yellow Scummy theme. 
I still need to find a good spot for Lok Revenants markings on the hull.

Aaaaaaaaaaand now I want some space chocolate. THANKS @SOLAR FLARE !

These look great Polda! The only thing I would I would add would be a fine line of a different color on the wing for each ship between the dark brown and the tan just to distinguish each ship from one another. But that's if they were my ships. I get mixed up very easily when I have multiple ships of the same kind.

As it is, it looks like there's at least one ship (second picture, lower right) that has blue panels next to the engines that the others don't.

All still work in progress. In the state they are now, those little boxes at the back of the wings are used as subtle numbering. Those panels in blue I tried, did not like and removed. Instead I put dark grey on the large panel in the middle of each wing. Now I am experimenting with having a good canopy color so that it's not just blue like the engines. 
There are also some yellow/black warning stripes around the engine on top and the open panel on the right wing.  

I should hopefully be done today/tomorrow at which point I can move on to a Wookie Cruiser.

@Malabor, sorry haven't checked this for a while due to RW overtaking X-Wing a little. Unfortunately I do not do commission work or sell painted minis.

Did you sculpt the tree limbs yourself or modify some existing ones?

That wood grain is sharp! Paint brush or markers?

Those are leftover plastic parts from Citadel Wood (which I use for Runewars but flocked the trees with foam instead of using the plastic leaves). The grain was done using size 2 brush with a super sharp tip.

I'm not loving the leaves, but man alive that wood grain effect is stunning!!! I'm not sure why, I never would have thought of using brown for ships but it looks OUTSTANDING!!!! It just makes the ships pop. Scum or not the theme color variations is uniquely beautiful. Great work!!
