Repainting the Firespray-31
X-Wing is a fantastic game, easy to learn, hard to master, and part of its appeal is fully painted models. They are not bad either, I am more than happy with fielding them straight out of the box, and they look great on the table top.
This is me we are talking about here, and I like to tinker. So this is my first attempt at repainting a stock model, and I am going to repaint one of my favourite models in the game, the Firespray-31.
I just want a different looking Firespray-31, really that is all there is to it. I am very tempted to paint it to look like Kath Scarlet’s ship, but I really want to try some new techniques for me, and I am not sure I’ll be able to pull such a complex paint scheme off.
- I want to try some different sorts of weathering than I have used before.
- I want to use my airbrush as much as I can.
- I also want to try some OSL (Object Source Lighting) effects.
Here is the inspiration for my first X-Wing repaint; Fantasy Flight Games’ artwork for Kath Scarlet’s Firespray.
