The Blog Awakens

30 04 2016

Hi everyone,

It’s been a busy year for me. Last summer I got married and I’ve had less time for side projects. I have continued to paint however I haven’t got around to posting.

X-wing miniatures are known for their models that come out of the box very detailed and well painted. This christmas they released new miniatures for star wars: the force awakens. The starter set comes with a Poe Dameron pilot card, but not his custom x-wing. My friend had a birthday recently and he’s got practically every x-wing mini out there so I thought I’d give him one he didn’t have.

I tried to paint it as close to the movie as possible. There aren’t that many pictures of it, but there are a lot of toys/ model kits. However I’m not sure if those are accurate. Below is the Revel box art.

I thought it would be fun to put this thing back in the box. Especially because there’s no production model sold. I tried to fool my friend, but I think he immediately knew I painted it.IMG_20160421_194536554.jpg
