I recently realized something, as I was painting my Armada squadrons... unlike X-Wing, where EVERYONE is "special," for Armada I can actually paint the hero ships a bit different!
So I have started to do that with the Rebels. Below you can see Dutch Vander (left) and Tycho Chelu (right). I made their ships stand out a little, and also made their squadrons a bit more flashy, as befits the wingmen of a hero! Note the white chevron on Dutch's ship... that represents a Victory Star Destroy that he destroyed. I might change it up though.
