While painting the Armada scale Falcon, I used the X-Wing scale model as a rough guide and managed to match the grey on it fairly well.
After cleaning the model with a hobby knife and needle file, it was primed in Black using P3 Black primer. Continue reading Star Wars Armada: Painting The Millennium Falcon
I’ve done a similar hack for my X-Wing miniatures, and decided to port the system over to Armada. Putting silicone on the base of all your snub fighters gives them a bit of weight and better grip on table surfaces.
Admittedly it’s not as essential to do when playing Armada, as fighter placement isn’t as precise as it is in X-Wing, but it does help that little extra bit.

While painting Dash Rendar, I used the X-Wing sized model as a guide. After cleaning the model I primed in black using P3 Black primer. Continue reading Star Wars Armada: Painting Dash Rendar’s YT-2400
I painted Boba Fett in the colours found on the movie model and not the standard FFG paint scheme. I re-painted my X-Wing Scale Slave 1 the same way. Here are some reference pictures of the movie model if you’re thinking of doing the same thing. Continue reading Star Wars Armada: Painting Boba Fett’s Slave 1

I decided to paint my Hounds Tooth to look like it had seen some bounty hunter action, and very beat up for it. Continue reading Star Wars Armada: Painting Hounds Tooth
Painting ol’ Toilet Paper Head’s ship was pretty fun and easy to do. After cleaning the model up, I primed in black, using Army Painters excellent and thin black primer. Less is always more with primer, better six thin coats than three thick ones. Continue reading Star Wars Armada: Painting the Jumpmaster 5000
I managed to play in a Sullust event and when it came down to selecting prizes, I wanted to get the Rogue Pack because I was interested in getting a head start on painting up the ships.
Unfortunately, a great guy that I met there and a local veteran Kristjan, also wanted the pack. I felt bad for taking the Rogues ahead of him so I vowed to do something special by painting all the ships and sharing them so others get an insight into painting them before release.

This sleek fighter is relatively straight forward to paint and looks great on the table. I’ve tried to keep my scheme basic and in the style from Return of the Jedi but changed the colour to green from the traditional red.
