|Star Wars! Lasers in Space! Pew Pew!|
I must admit, I am not a Star Wars enthusiast. I didn't know any rebel ships other than X wings or A wings existed, nor did I know the elaborate back story involved in choosing the individual tone of blue-gray for each of the TIE fighters from each specific movie. So throwing all this aside, I set out to repaint all my Imperial models in the one shade! Taking the opportunity to use my new airbrush, i chose a light, high contrast GW grey and set to work. A simple wash and drybrush later and I'm ready for my next game.

I really love the higher contrast cockpit as compared to the original paint scheme. I also added in a gloss finish to the black, a little bit of blue glow to the engine, and limited the red stripes to the hull rather than the solar paneling (I think that's what it is?). One thing's for sure, painted models roll better, so let's hope re-painted ones perform exceptionally!
