Hey everyone. Did this a while back. Going to be doing a bunch more when I actually have the X-wings to paint. Here's Red 2, flown by Wedge Antilles. I'll likely do Garven, Biggs and Luke as well.

This looks really good, but I think for those of us less than familiar with the X-wing game we need a picture of the original piece reference, in order to judge with true impunity. ;)

Good point. When I get the next one for repainting I will take a side by side picture.

They do look good. Would you say it is a worthy investment? M

Re: FFG X-wing repaint.

Finally gone and got some more of these so I can do a side by side.


My version is on the left and the original pre-paint is on the right. Biggest difference is on the wings where I removed the square panels (which don't exist on any of the studio models as far as I can see) and moved the squadron insignia to the right place. The pre-paint also has a bit too green a hue to my eyes.

They're pretty tiny models for what you pay. You do get quite a lot of card counters ect with each of them and stat cards and suchlike but those are only really useful if you're playing their game.

Just getting into this game and loving it.

There's a guy on BGG who has created a decal sheet for red's 1-6

Might be of some use to you
