Hey all, Eric here. Again a catch up post. One of my regular commissions pinged me about possibly painting Star Wars Armada fighter squadrons so I wanted to share the results of my experiments.
While ultimately we couldn’t come to an agreement on the commission, I still forged ahead doing some test paints on my own squadrons:
I have to say I’m very happy with the results. I haven’t really painted at this scale before and I was worried I wouldn’t be able to hang with the level of detail I wanted. I was pleasantly surprised that I could consistently do things like the triangle on the A wing aces.
I wanted to be able to differentiate between the generic squadrons and the aces so I was trying alt paint schemes for guys like Soontir Fel.
I was pretty happy with the results on those too. I think it’s good for me to paint in a scale that’s outside of my comfort zone both larger and smaller. I’ve shelved the rest of the squadrons (Because I have tons) for now, but once I take a break from my Word Bearers, they’ll definitely be on my list to paint again. 🙂
