Armada repaints and other stuff

13 posts in this topic

Well, I could hardly NOT buy it could I?!

And then there was that stupid conversation with myself where I said, sure, there is actually NO NEED to repaint anything here its all perfectly fine...yeah, well guess who wasn't listening to himself!

I have stuck with my x-wing mantra here, not strictly what I would class as repaints, just touch ups to bring out the details, so here we go!

Fighters were first under the brush

WIP on the classic QX type platform for Armada, lets call this the QX-1 as I will no doubt be accessorising it much like our larger station! Probably will come with the cute little dinky Container barge, a mini-me version of our Xwing barge. what to create next? Any suggestions welcome, I'm really enjoying this!

Also WIP on a miniature version of our Xwing scum base. Figured with wave 2 incoming those little rascals are going to need a base of operation smile. Like its big brother I am keeping things quite modular and free form so the little entrance on the side can be used as a secret escape hatch or attach the extra pad and it raises its capacity to launch more fighters maybe? the little pad at the back is an optional thing too, complete with docking boom for the larger ships! For a little extra fun I miniaturised our T-42 Armoured Dumplings so the little guy has some orbital defense platforms too, weapons are interchangeable so build things as your scenario requires.... so many ideas...so little time!

Wave 1 Imperials done, 6 interceptors short but they are sending me the missing parts so I might paint 'em up in a nice red scheme when they land just for something different

Made up a destroyed version of the QX style platform, this is what happens when Lord vader calls and you have rich tea instead of Hobknobs...be warned!

I have also been working on another expansion set for the Space station we sell. This set turns it into a big beefy command post type base, stands nearly 12 inches tall!

command%20station%20finished%2015_zpsdkn

pretty useful in a lot of systems, for instance I will be putting it to work in trek, Armada and Halo fleet battles in the future!

command%20station%20finished%2010_zpsied

command%20station%20finished%206_zpsm0ta

command%20station%20finished%207_zpsusat

Fully backwards compatible with our previous upgrade sets too, I'm a gamer at heart and I love having OPTIONS! building different variants and making the rules for them is fun too!

command%20station%20finished%2015_zpsdkn

command%20station%20finished%2014_zpsoum

The upgrade kit consists of the following, the lower arms simply slot over the little nubs and sit comfortably in place and if you take the time to pin or magnetise the upper structures they can be simply replaced as need be...magic!
