Lord Therin's TIE Advanced x1 was created by OfficerDonNZ
This idea was spawned out of a email conversation between myself and my girlfriend as we both play SWTOR quite heavily. There are to my knowledge no kits of the ships used in the game are available and it's pretty unlikely there ever will be. We're also writing two stories that have a very twisted and unlikely premise.

So the build is basically going to be the Bandai TIE advanced x1 with a custom paint job. Standard Imperial black and grey it won't be :D I should have it done hopefully before the group build ends.

Name: Nathrrya Therin
Race: Human, female
Profession: Military Commander, Sith Lord, Juggernaut
Birth World: Axxila
Birth Year: 3673 BBY
Age: Thirty-six Standard Years
Affiliations:
Sith Empire (formally)
Galactic Empire (formally)
Alliance to Restore the Republic (current)


Nathrrya and her apprentice K’natara are believed to have been discovered by Imperial forces during their push into the Unknown Regions. Both women were found in and released from carbonite. Nathrrya was brought before Emperor Palpatine while her apprentice was kept hidden by the older woman while the younger recovered. Nathrrya agreed to join Palpatine out of shear convenience. She later spared with Darth Vader during their sparring session the Dark Lord offered her the position has his second in command which she accepted.

Nathrrya was granted command of the Star Destroyer Accuser which was commanded by Captain Firmus Piett. It should be noted that Piett still retains his position as Captain of the Accuser. Nathrrya served the Galactic Empire faithfully for six standard months or so it appeared. That changed during her mission to recover the stolen plans for the Death Star. Grand Moff Tarkin made the grave miscalculation of destroying Aldreaan.

The Sith was furious and swore she would kill him for such a blunder. Exactly why is unclear unless you are another force-user. When asked she said due to the hole that was blasted into the living force when the planet was destroyed it was something that could not go unpunished. It would turn out not to be an idle threat on Nathrrya’s part for she did indeed kill the Grand Moff just before her shocking and dramatic defection to the Rebel Alliance in which she brought her entire Star Destroyer with her, complete with full crew and stromtrooper complement.

During battle Nathrrya can be found either on the bridge of her Star Destroyer or in the cockpit of her TIE Advanced which is very distinctive due to the custom paint job the craft has. She has also been known to join ground campaigns when necessary.

Well here's a pic of some of the parts on the work table :) Made a start at least.



I'm planning on painting it with Vallejo paints which will be the first time I've used them. So any tips would be much appreciated.
The only thing I'm debating is weather or not to use the clear parts or not as I can tell they are going to be a right pain to mask and paint. Something I'll have to think about.

What kind of Vellejo paints are you planning on mate? Model Air just airbrush without any thinning for me and are super easy to use. Model colour are my favorite for brush painting.

Nice story, I also play SWTOR but not as much as I used to, my account is still active though so I guess I should play more.

Here is another work in progress piccie. It likely looks worse than it is as it was taken with a flash and not under natural light. But yes it's violet :D Nathrrya wields a violet coloured lightsaber so she also flies a violet coloured TIE :D Still got to tidy up the paint work and things yet.
