  1. So yeah, that took longer than I thought. I went with a black ink for now and I think it made a huge difference. Once this is fully dry, I'm going to pot the mid-tone back before moving onto the highlights.

    I went and looked at their KS' and compared them to the prices on the website. The dwarves are currently at preorder prices which are comparable to the KS prices. However if you look at their orcs and goblins KS, the large models are almost half the website prices. And in either case the box sets are the best deals. Looks well worth the money but could be hard on the wallet.

    That's pretty typical, they're half the size and a quarter of the budget. And it's not unusual for some Army replaced gear to end up with the Marines.

    I don't know about UK armored infantry formations but the US units are set. The entire battalion is made of armored infantry; five companies, one HQ, four armored. The ground and crew are part of the same squad and are the same for each mission. At least until some get orders to a new location. It sounds like UK Engineers are broken apart like US Engineers.

    Don't look at their website. I'm also with you and hoping that the KS will be a lot less expensive. I will say that the renders look great and if the actual models look like them they are worth it, just out of my price range per model.

    Being mechanized, the vehicle crews appreciated the Engineers but the rest of us had to do our own digging and such. Economy of scale or some such though I didn't always buy that as to why the crewmembers couldn't dig their own holes too. Twelve years in I reclassed to Intelligence to get away from the labor of Infantry but because of my experience, I was always assigned to an Infantry unit.

    Tis all too true. We Infantry like our cover, concealment, and avenues of fire.

    Thanks, I'll keep as eye out.

    Will there be an opportunity to add on pledges after or join after the KS ends? I just don't have the funds now for this.
  11. If SCA'ians try to tease you tell them to elf off as one it isn't an SCA thing, two real-life arms don't follow SCA rules, and three they belong to your family and they can still elf the elf off.

  13. I haven't forgotten this one, unlike the past, I've been busy finishing up three different projects for my Masters and I just started a new job. Hopefully, tonight or tomorrow, I can get back to adding paint. Good news, the wet palette still has wet paint, thick paint but still wet.
  14. So yesterday I forgot to check on the bones in the morning and didn't get around to till the evening. And 24 hours later, and some more of the liner came off the pieces that started in the Zep cleaner and pretty much no more came off the others. When I put it way Tues night I did put some other pieces that had refused to strip in the Isopropyl in the Super clean. After 24 hours the paints came off but the liner was still a pain and for the most part didn't want to come off. So last night I went ahead and put all the pieces that were in the Isopropyl into a gallon of the Super clean. I'll see how they come out when I get to them over the next day.
  15. The 5 hour report. I think I've reached the point of diminishing return on the Super clean. There was almost no changes and I didn't think they would show in photos. The Zep pieces showed some beginnings of cleaning but it looks like I would have to restart the clock. But I think I'm done reporting tonight, we'll see if an overnight soak will have any further effect.
