Armada Wave 7 has finally come out and I’ve made it a point to paint at least ONE of each of my rebel ships. Since I recently did one of each Imperial ship I decided I’d follow up for the rebels with an Oceanic theme to represent the fine Mon Calamari people, but accent it with some flames to represent burning oceans, or their fighting spirit.
Growing up, my favorite band was Type O Negative. This was a major influence on me and why my favorite colors are black and green. (Also helps that Luke in ROTJ was basically those same colors as well). So when I got an Airbrush for Christmas, my first major project was going to be to repaint some of my Armada ship that I’d previously screwed up on and wanted to repaint them.
Here’s the video of the Livestream if you are interested:
The end result wasn’t half bad. Here’s how they came out.
So the next day I went back and added some details. I did some panels in grey, and then added tiny white dots where I thought lights should be. I think it came out pretty good!
Here are some more closeups:
This is part of the reason I’m now trying to manufacture reasons to use these 3 ships in a list! Might have to repaint some squadrons soon!
It’s been a great contest with over 60 submissions! I’d like to thank everyone who entered! Submissions are now closed, but you are still more than welcome to add some more paint jobs to the forums if you simply want to share!
I’ll be announcing the winner of the Legion Core Set, as well as the winner of the door prize in the next day or 2, so make sure and check back often!
I’ll be narrowing down the paint jobs soon, but here are some of the finalists:
Here are some thumbnails of the submissions we got over on the forums!
Since the holidays are nearly upon us, I have decided it is time for a contest! The winner of which will receive a gift card to miniature market for a Legion Core Set! What contest you ask?
In preparation for what will likely be a WHOLE lot of painting, I’ve decided that I want to see some of the best paint jobs that everyone has to offer! I’m going to let this contest run until after Thanksgiving, and the winner will be announced during the weekend of Nov 24-26th, 2017. Your paint job can be any FFG miniature! I will be picking the winner myself, but you entries will get bonus points if it’s a Star Wars product – so while I am open to entries of Runewars, and other games, I’m really looking for Star Wars paint jobs. X-Wing, Armada, and Imperial Assault will be my main focus.
I’m looking for the best paint job, but will totally give bonus points for a great photo, so the more work you put in to your presentation, there better! Backgrounds, setup, and great lighting will help! You’ll need to register on my forums, and if you have any trouble doing that, contact me on my youtube channel.

Contest MAY be cancelled or rescheduled if there are not enough entries. If I feel there are so few entries I reserve the right to adjust the terms or time of this giveaway. The idea is to have many paint jobs show up for the viewing pleasure of everyone.
