Community post! (sorta...) Some X-Wing repaints

o/

Sorry for the lack of a blog post last Thursday per my normal schedule. My GF had a fairly substantial surgery on Tuesday, and helping her get around more or less ate up the rest of the week. Thus no hobby time = No blog post. She's managing pretty good though, and as such I was able to paint some on Saturday. Due to an extremely busy schedule the next two weeks coming, I'll be milking that little bit of painting time for all that its worth (just a forewarning).

So first up,  I finished up the Scarlet Harlot, and here she is:

Soon to be flying into an asteroid near you!
Any simple google search will show that I'm not alone in this endeavor though. Indeed Archon Voril offered to send me pix of his latest endeavor, his recently painted Green Wing:

I particularly like how the Y-Wing came out but as usual, I'm kinda biased in that ship's favor...
Also, whilst exchanging painting project pics on FB, Clayton sent me pics of his WIPs. Currently he has a quartet of TIEs of various types which are in progress. The HWK-290 looks like its done and The Goblin (Firespray) is in its final stages I think.

Hrmmm...I was pondering this color scheme, may have to try something else...
An excellent color scheme for what I otherwise consider an ugly ship.
I think next up on my X-Wing painting list will be the HWK-290...just don't like that brown. However I have a few things in the works. So there will be a few blog posts before I get to that.

Liking The Goblin.

The Scarlet Harlot gives me an uncomfortable itch.

lol, yes she does that, but only to her repeat customers...

The Goblin paint is very cool/nice actually! And since I'm not a fan of that middle of ship that's saying something.
And Voril I like your repaints too, the green looks sharp... especially the A-Wing.
Of course I'm biased to the Harlot. I think the conversion and paint is fantastic! The pics are nice but the ship in person is super sharp!
I'm looking forward the Hawk repaint actually.

Really looking awesome, man! The repaints really give the models a ton of character. I dig 'em!

Thanks Mordian!

How exactly did I miss this gorgeousness?

That was rhetorical, but now I'm starting to wonder if you've dropped off my blogroll, Cheef. It seems an absolute AGE since I last swung by...

Not to dismiss your own painting skill, but what color did your friend use for his Moldy Crow HWK? It's far nicer than FFG's brown plastic.
