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.
Here is a Green Squadron A-Wing completely repainted. The model was first stripped of all factory paint by placing it into a jar of brake fluid.
This was a fairly quick touch up job on the stock FFG A-Wing. In my opinion, the A-Wing is one of the best looking pre-paints in the X-Wing line. The colours are great, the model is beautiful, everything is good “out of the box” so all the A-Wing needs is a little bit of TLC to make it really stand out.
I know I know, Nationals happened like, a year ago but I finally found some time to make a write up. Also I think my tale of Arvel at Nationals is a pretty intense and interesting tale. So to give a brief history of my gaming life, I started playing X-wing competitively at the beginning on 2014. My first tournament was St. Catherine’s store championship at Phoenix Rising. Going 3 -1 there and having such a great experience in the competitive scene I ended up going to every tournament and regional I could attend. Since I was doing decent in all of them I was really looking forward to Nationals. But I had no clue what I wanted to run. So I went to the drawing board and looked at what I thought would be different than the meta, would work within the meta and put a smile on all my opponents faces when they saw my list.

Hey folks! My names Joe, and i must confess I’m a Rebel, and an A-Wing fanatic.
My love affair with this awesome little ship started when i first began playing. It was a dark time, full of mystery and X-Wing was just getting its legs under it. Continue reading A-wings, and my experience with those little space kayaks of doom
This is an early repaint for me. I’m really happy that FFG used Ralph McQuarrie’s concept art on the A-Wing prototype card. Continue reading Custom Repaint: A-Wing Prototype
