While not usually enjoying pre-paints, I managed to avoid FFG's X-Wing game for a long time. But have now gone for it. I have ended up buying a load of stuff second hand off ebay, and found myself with 8 X-Wings, even though you really don't need that many. It's more of a game of 3 vs 3 ships, or numbers like that.
The standard of the pre-paints is actually remarkably good on most of the models, but I decided to repaint all these in the colours of Red Squadron (from A New Hope). To be honest, I don't usually research my historical stuff as much as I researched these guys.
I went for a pretty simple but distinctive yellow stripe thing for the TIEs.
