Greetings, everyone!

We worked our way through all of Wave 1.  It appears that the TIE Advanced received the least love.  That's okay.  We can't all be the cool kid...especially in this crowd.  Moving on to Wave 2, our showcase for this week will be the Kuat Systems Engineering RZ-1 A-wing Interceptor! I've seen plenty of repaints for this ship, so this should be a good thread.  

She's a quick little booger so keep a firm hand on the stick and try to steer clear of Star Destroyer Command Towers!

This was the first ship I painted when I started playing X-wing so there are things I'd do better now, but sentimentality prevents me from doing more than a touch up.

I've been lucky with this one: every game he's in, his rolls are better than they should be (statistically). My opponents often comment on how their A's never live that long or roll as many hits.

Here is Lucky Streak

Green Squadron A-Wings of mine. Little guys got their share of kills, even shot down a Raider once.

What color is that? My poor brain can't decide if it is grey, green, or blue... (they look amazing in all three colors)

And here is closer look on the leader.

 

Do you do tutorial videos? I would watch the schiznit out of them if you had some on youtube

They're green. "Green Squadron" just  didn't sound right with no such color on their fighters :)

Unfortunately no, but thank you :) .  However, I can provide some pointers:

- I used Citadel colors, with Caliban Green as base color and mix of it and Warpstone Glow for highlights. I used Citadel colors as I had some left from painting WFB.  I also used dark green wash. 

- In case you have one of those red A-wings, just paint it with the dark green color over the original red one. Then, I applied wash over the green and where needed repaired the green where wash concentrated too much. Following this, I mixed the dark green with light green to highlight the tip, two raised panels, fuselage behing the cockpit and raised lines on engines of the fighter. With the A-wing nose nose, it's better to make several "levels" by steadily adding more light green to the mixture for achieving smooth transition between colors. 

- Repair any green smears on grey parts of the fighter. Also, you may higlight those parts as well in the same way as green ones. Plus you may apply some grey on few panels, to add more contrast or assymetry. If needed, you may use some sort of black wash to pronounce lines between panels (the one on the left has wash applied, two other do not for example). 

I hope this helps. And if you try some A-wing repaints yourself, that you will post them here :)
