Here is the latest addition to the 333rd Adon armored reserves. This militia unit is equipped with a just enough castoff and captured equipment to maintain their status as a 'fighting unit'. 

 

Intercepted Terran intelligence describes the unit as 'uncommonly good' and 'the Keeblers' despite the 333rds lack of actual combat experience.

 

Thanks to Jeneki for the most excellent tanks!

Wait ... cookie camo?

 

I don't know whether to laugh or feel bad now.

What with it being almost Christmas Day over in the US (and it now being here in Australia), I'm putting up some shots I took prior to posting Project Peanut Butter Snickerdoodle behind a spoiler. You can imagine the opening of the spoiler as being like unwrapping the present.

Opened my gift during Christmas: one very pink Dictator!  Thanks @jsalyers!

 

the fun part will be trying to replicate the scheme for the rest of the squad!

 

I'll be using this fig as part of my Rach force.  I asked for pink because I figure, as aliens, Rach sensibilities as to what cool colors may be different than humans.  Plus it's fun to make people say they were beat by the pick BSRs.

Glad you got it!  The hat should just pop off if you don't want it on.   It is painted underneath.  I wanted to make sure that was an option. My tremmors  really struggle with the hard lines on CAV's.  I  certainly won't be offended if you touch it up, some parts need it by someone who is physically capable of holding their hand still.

If your name is on this list please post in the thread and let us know if you've received your SS gift and how fantastic it is! :)

I have fixed my sealing mishap!  Can't tell it was a problem.  All hail Reaper Brush on Sealer!

 

Not sure if I will be home in time to make it to the post office today, but I will definitely have it in the mail by tomorrow.

      Seeing the nice results on different wip's using "N" scale Outland Models buildings for CAV terrain, I picked up a few kits myself....and I actually finished one! This is the train railway modern garage / logistic center. I was shooting for a fairly new concrete precast type building. I am pretty happy with how it turned out. I used mostly sponge stiling to achieve the look.  Here it is with one of my best painted CAV for scale ( he is in the classic B&W T.V. Camo pattern ).



       
      Now for the problems....I was able to get a nice sky / earth effect on the window panes, but it does't even show in the photos. Next one I will probably use brighter colors for the sky and earth reflection. The decal on the roof was also a big fail. I tried a method of rubbing the ink off of a printed page as shown on the Baremetal YouTube videos. That was a failure. I used an inkjet printer and I suspect he used a laser printer which would explain the problem I ran over. I was partially successful in hiding the problem by printing out a badge from the CAV kickstarter and varnishing it to the roof. The center of the badge was cut out and I stipled blue in the cutout. Lastly my clumsy hands broke several assembly pins while assembly the building with all the paint on it...so superglue came to the rescue! 
       
      Anyways C&C is welcome.

      1) Will these 12 new paints (73400-73411) be available for normal retail sale at some point?
       
      2) They claim to be HD paints, but they have white caps. What's up with that?
       
      3) Is there any chance of being able to purchase black caps for Reaper paint bottles? I could find only white caps in the store.

      Are there still plans for a new Journal of Recognition or a similar manual?  I would love to see something like this as part of the next Kickstarter.
