So, first things first. FFG has announced Wave III for Armada. Currently, they've only shown two ships, which can't possible be all that we'll see. Here they are. You'll see a bigger post about it when there is more information to share.
Here you can see that I actually made some effort to paint the engine effect. Yeah, yeah, I know that TIEs don't look like this, but they're my ships. I like the blue!
Here's a before and after shot. These suckers are so small that detail becomes lost. I was really just looking to give them a cohesive look.
For such tiny models, these things take a long time to paint! Also... they are ALL THE SAME. Sigh. It's not exciting work. But...
I'm really happy with the end result! I think the fleet looks really cohesive. I might need to do something to set the Vader TIE Advanced squadron apart, but haven't decided what yet.
