Just a quick update on shipping. 4 left to go.

 

Also, Happy Thanksgiving to those in the US.

Are you PM'ing people to let them know when you've shipped? Just curious since I like to keep an eye out for anything shipped to me after the USPS lost a pckg on me last month.

 

Yes I am (so yes, you are in the last four. )  ::):

Just finished boxing and labeling the last 4 boxes.  They should be in the mail soon, hopefully by the end of the week.

 

Having finished the sorting and packing, I can honestly say that I think I could happily work for a minis company packing up figs and mailing them out.   ::):

Thanks Jasper!  Really looking forward to seeing this in person after spending more time than I should have looking up images online to try and decide on my choices.

Congratulations on all that hard work Jasper! 

 

Hopefully it put the dent in your collection that you wanted it to.

Well, everything shipped last week.  All that's left to do is pack up what is left.

A much smaller pile!

Not sure if I can fit it in one box or not....

 

BTW, anyone who does a WIP or Showoff for of your pics, feel free to post a link here or send me a message.  I don't get much time on the forums most days and I'd hate to miss anything.

Got my box in today too, has my stuff and Willen's stuff. Didn't unpack his picks, but I took all mine out of the blisters and put in baggies to save space.

 

Thanks Jasper!

      Hello All,
       
      I was looking on the internet for some buildings to use with my Cav forces so having a look at the scale a lot of reasonable models pre-painted came up as well as the 4ground ones you need to put together yourself then I came across these ready damaged buildings. And theres a few different variants and they don't break the bank either.
       
       
       
       
      looks a nice kit comes flatpack and easy to just clip together, the Cav is for scale and as you can see not bad, just deciding whether to spray it then add some burns marks for recent damage or weathering to make it a bit more like the ones that I've seen done for drop zone commander with all the foliage on them.
       
      what do people think will use this topic to show any progress with my painting
       
      regards

      Since I don't have enough projects on the go, I decided to start another one.  When the Bones III Kickstarter came around I really liked the Blackstar Corsairs, so much I ordered two sets.
      When the giant box o' Bones arrived I was surprised to see them on their sprues still and in pieces. Not a problem, it just meant I couldn't play with them, err, inspect them when I was sorting my figs.  So they all went in a Ziploc.
      Today while pondering which project to work on I noticed them (they were hiding behind another project I have't even started a WIP on yet....).
      And tonight while pondering how the Olympics ruin TV for everyone, even when it is night where the Olympics are being held, I decided to go take a look at them.
       
      I found it interesting that all 5 come with the same "accessory" sprue, which contains a bayonet, a belt of grenades?, the visor, a sheathed knife and a gun with right hand.
      But 80076 and 80080 come with the same gun on their parts sprue as well.  So you end up with a couple extra guns.
      Each guy comes in 4 parts btw, lower torso, upper torso and each arm.  My plan is to do the first 5 as designed, then do some mods on the other 5.  May need to look for some weapons to swap.
       
      At this point these guys are just clipped and friction fitted.  I'll get them cleaned up and glued together sometime soon.  The middle 3 will likely need the right arm and weapon left off until after painting the body.
      Not sure if I'll use all of the accessories on all of them or not.
       
      I'm very happy with these guys, glad I got 2 sets.  They will likely play a role in my Savage Rifts campaign at some point.  And maybe the IMEF have a new enemy to battle....

      I've been running a Savage Rifts campaign (Pinnacle did a Kickstarter to adapt Palladium's classic Rifts setting over to the Savage Worlds rules).  So I decided I needed some things painted that would work in that setting.
      As the Coalition is ever present but I have lots of "guys in armor" I decided to start with some Skelebots (The Coalition's disposable killer robots, designed to look like skeletons, as the Coalition is all about the skulls).
      I have a bit of an issue with ordering anything from Palladium these days (Robotech) combined with their existing Skelebot figs being from the early 90s and pretty rough by today's standards, so I went for Reaper's awesome Cyber-Reavers as substitutes.
      I ordered a couple of packs at Christmas then found 3 more that were left over from another project.  The plan was for a nice quick tabletop paint job, but it still took over a month, as I kept getting distracted by other things (like big stompy robots, and actually doing game prep).  Finally got around to finishing them yesterday, and sealing them today. @Glitterwolf requested (and provided) a fancy background, so I printed it out and grabbed a Sci-Fi bridge terrain piece for them to stand on.

       
      WIP is here.

      Started these back in October, specifically the Sara Blitzer conversion.  Was working on them at Reapercon, finished them during the Minivember challenge.  Based and sprayed last night. I also completed one more of the Tisdale cousins, from the BoGW.  They are ready for the game tonight. 
       

       
      From left to right: 80024, 80049, 80014, 80019, 80021, 80010.

      I'm going to be running Savage Rifts some in the new year (at least until everyone gets tired of either 1) dying, or 2) being indestructible, or 3) wants to go play some 5e.
      For those that don't know, Rifts is Palladium Games "everything and the kitchen sink" game setting; magic, psionics, sci-fi, monsters, giant robots, dragons, aliens... you name it.  Its actually the game I started out my RPG journey on, many, many years ago.  So when Pinnacle decided to Kickstarter a Savage Worlds version of Rifts, I had to pledge.
      Since we had an open time (one game ended, our other one is on break due to renovations) I figured we could try it out.
      Palladium has some older Rifts minis, and I got some of them ages ago. I'm planning to paint up some of those as needed.  I'm very reluctant to buy any new ones from them (until I get phase 2 Robotech figs, or the world ends in some apocalypse, whichever comes first (I'm guessing the apocalypse)) so I'm also looking for other alternatives (also, the Rifts minis are pretty dated, small compared to the current scale, and even then the scale seems to fluctuate between figs). Suggestions are welcome.
      Some of what I'll be assembling/painting are proxies.  I've seen nothing in 28mm that looks much like a UAR-1 Enforcer, but I have a nice big stompy Weird War 2 mecha from West Wind that will be at least (scale) 20 ft tall. I've got a couple of old VOID mechs that should get some paint on them.
      And starting out I've got some Reaper Cyber-Reavers I ordered aas part of the 12 Days of Christmas promotion.  These will be painted up as Coalition Skelebots.

       
      Just cleaning them up an removing mold lines so far.  Haven't decided yet if I'm just going to put them on the slottas with a little putty or find some resin bases.  They are just mooks so keeping it simple would make sense, but they are also easily posed so could take advantage of some interesting bases. Bases I'd need to find, in boxes......hmmmm.
