Progress on the Harlequins is slow but still going. The third Star Weaver is now done. I’m particularly proud that I’ve managed to keep the diamonds in mostly the same spots as previous ones and the colour transition is nice and smooth.

It says remaining squadrons as if it weren’t almost a dozen.

A couple of each Republic fighters here. Finished off the Torrents and Arc-170s. The new ones I did are the Y-wings and Aethersprites.

I painted my inverted scheme on a Torrent and Arc-170 to represent the escort for my Consular of the same scheme.

I painted the Y-wings the alternative colour of green since I’m doing blue and white instead of red and white for my Republic fleet. They are called Ferb squad, though I am open to consider Olive, Matcha and Thyme as the name. I painted one of them yellow to represent Anakin and tried to keep to the design similar to the media representations.

The Aethersprites are done to represent the 4 Jedi squad leaders available to use and a couple normal ones. There is Plo Koon, Asohka Tano, Kit Fisto, and Luminara Unduli. With the models so tiny, it was hard to get the unique colour scheme designs that each Jedi has. But I like how they turned out. I am considering getting more Aethersprites so each Jedi can have their own squad.

The second Star Weaver is done with a couple more crewmates. I brightened the orange on the diamonds a bit from the first one and I think I like it more. I’ve updated the old one to be brighter too.

While putting together the next batch of Space Marines to paint, I painted up a Solitaire. He’s going to be one of the leaders so I put in more diamonds across the piece.

I painted the orange in first so I can get the proper transitions before painting in the black diamonds. There was some diamonds added to the cloak so it looks like his trail is melding in with the cloth. Similar to the Shadowseer, I put diamonds on the hood, fading to the black.

The wraithbone masonry he’s vaulting over is a bit of a treat. I made sure to add bright highlights all along the runes, especially in the shade so it looks polished. Quite the dynamic looking mini, very striking when you have the bright diamonds and costuming that we all love with the Harlequins.

I changed up the jump pack on a Chaplain. I think he needed the change so the two Chaplains can be differentiated. It’s painted like the jump pack on the Emperor’s Champion but in black.

Got a couple more stands done on the V-19s. One is blue to match another blue set I did to escort the Consular Charger. The other is my normal colour scheme for the majority of the squads.

Next might be some Jedi starfighers or some Arc-170s.

The second batch of jetbikes are done! Lots of mud and weathering were added to the bases and bikes so it looks like they’re currently fighting. I’m still loving the narrative of the stone faces with the chain attach. I’m told this battlefield could be the battle for Terra, so the faces could be getting pulled down or blasted off.

I’m in the middle of building the Outriders, so in the mean time I will be painting some Harlequins.

The first batch of jetbikes are done.

Like the Xiphon and Chaplains I already did, there is a lot of dirt and weathering on the bikes. They are currently in battle, in white armour, so I imagine it gets dirty. The bases further expand on my theme of these. Some stone faces are attached with chain so it looks like an excavation is going on. I think I’ll add more wood pathways for the trench works part of the theme.

Star Wars Armada: Republic Repaint – Consular & Squadrons January 14, 2021

The repaints are going well. My next batch includes the second Consular and a few Squads.

The consular, this time, is painted as the blue version of the Radiant art title card upgrade. I redid the basecoat as blue and added white lines and other accent colours. I will probably use it as the Consular C70 for it’s fanciness.

I painted up three bases of V-19 Torrent squadrons to go with the Consular. I have been told they are early era Clone Wars fighters, but I still went with my white/blue scheme. There are a handful of leader cards of unique clone troopers like Oddball and Axe who have their own squad symbols. I did a little freehand on some of the fighters with those symbols in case I want to use them some time.

Alternatively, I painted a squad in reverse. The fighters were painted in the majority blue with white accents instead, like my Consular ship. I think this will make it seem they were specifically assigned to escort or are closely associated with my Radiant Consular. Adds more character and narrative to my army. I might paint another base like this for symmetry since I can see more Torrent squads in my future.

Only 9 bases to go!

Star Wars Armada: Republic Repaint – Acclamator & Consular January 10, 2021

I am very happy with how the repaints turned out. I still have one more Consular before starting the squadrons.

I didn’t do any research as to if this scheme is one that’s canon, but I know that Clone trooper Rex and his army scheme is blue and white. So, that’s what I did.

The Acclamator was done almost completely with an airbrush. I redid the white and masked it off to do the blue. I couldn’t find any weapons anywhere on the ship, so I decided to sculpt a couple turbolasers on the hull. The Republic insignia on the bottom was sculpted on, and the one on top was airbrushed on by stencil.

It turns out the machine paint job of the Consular was quite messy so I fixed up the lines when I painted the blue and cleaned the white. I made the engine glow blue like the Acclamator, and painted all the guns and grey bits metallic instead.
