    Have you looked at the Kids Logic Robotech minis out now?  Highly detailed resin, usually 2-4 pieces.


    And I was just looking at all my spues from that terrible KS the other day...I should really put them together someday.....

    I have, but despite their annoying design "features" the Robotech Tactics figure have the advantage of already being in my possession.

  2. Got the second Archer I was working on assembled....I think.  Glues weren't setting right on it and I'm not happy with how the arms look.  Really bringing back so many frustrations with that whole kickstarter. 


    In other mech related news, I got a belated Christmas check so I went ahead and got in on the Clan Invasion at the Star Captain level.

  3. I may be able to get in for some Mechs in the kickstarter, but in the meantime I have completely lost my marbles and started the fiddly work of assembling the destroids from the failed kickstarter (not the new stuff that looks gorgeous).  Working on a pair of Spartans Archers first.  Already had a couple Tomahawks Warhammers done and painted, but will need to rebase.

    I'm on the weight loss game now too.  For the moment, I'm just tracking what I eat and keeping below what MyFitnessPal thinks my caloric intake should be.  If you exclude my candy habits (which I've mostly kicked) and stress eating because of work or sleep deprivation (because I have to stay up until 3 am because of work, again), I'm coming in at or under what the app thinks my calorie limit should be, so I know some of this is work's fault.  (And I know some of it is simply because I'm not exercising much.)


    Good news: I'm down 10-ish pounds since I started at the beginning of December.


    Bad news: I haven't changed much over the past week and change, but I'm only supposed to be losing a pound a week, so I'm not too worried, yet.  (I guess I got the easy pounds out of the way.)


    So 10 down, 50+ to go.


    If I can lose another 10, I'll be near the weight I was when I got married a bit over four years ago.


    One side effect of February's employment wackiness is that I may get more time to exercise, which I don't have right now.

    I was very successful with myfitnesspal in earlier rounds of weight loss. Last year I moved into a different position at work and my level of physical exertion changes on a daily basis. Couple that with not being able to wear a fitness monitor at work, the last time I tried to use MFP I couldn't get my calories counts right.  It was really frustrating.

    I was in stationed in South Korea, received my first couple CAV miniatures, and my first post (here) was me trying to see if there were any CAV players in San Angelo.  I lived on these boards for several years, even moderated the CAV sub-fora for a while.  I remember why SOON became a dirty word.  I remember the great assault on Mt. Olympus as we lesser beings strove for Godlike status.  My time on the boards started to lessen in 2009 - 2010.  I was getting ready to deploy with a unit I couldn't stand being in.  While I was deployed I didn't have a lot of time to get on.  When I returned I went into a multiyear gaming and painting malaise that several years later I was informed was a symptom of the depression I didn't realize I was going through.  Then I was getting ready to retire from active duty and was having a lot of personal issues.  After I retired came marital issues, counseling, and eventually a divorce.  Once I started having the desire to return to painting and gaming I didn't have time because single dad with a less than amicable relationship with his ex.  Last month I really hit a nostalgia note and actually painted eight miniatures in less than a month's time.  That's probably more miniatures than I've painted in the last 8 years.  Have some big positive life changes coming up, but I'm thinking I may be around more often once more.  If not, I'll at least check in more often than when my kids are with the ex-wife over the holidays.

  6. I've picked up some board games over the last couple years.  It started with Pandemic.  Ticket to Ride has been a huge hit, especially with my girlfriend.  Christmas resulted in Settlers of Catan, Quadropolis, Small World, and the 1910 expansion for Ticket to Ride.  We've enjoyed all of them, but Ticket to Ride has been the biggest winner.  We've only played a couple games of Catan so far, but I'm thinking I'll really like it.  Reception of Small World has been mixed, but I enjoy it.  Quadropolis was well received.

  7. In my absense my girlfriend and kids convinced me to play again. I had only played for a couple months after it first came out. I will say it has come a long way since and I finally finally find it enjoyable. To the point that I make sure to check in on it several times a day now.

    Very cool - yellow can be a tricky color to keep looking nice, and these look nice and clean.


    Did you have a certain faction in mind for these units?


    BattleTech is where I first started painting minis as a kid, so it has a special place in my heart. Well done!

    For now they are members of a mercenary company that I have yet to develop.

    Sounds fun!  Did you get in on the Clan Invasion Kickstarter as well? ^_^


    Lot of nice looking figures in that one.. 

    I was going to, but then my truck decided to develop multiple issues at once.  I get paid one more time before the late backer page closes, so I still might get in for some miniatures.

  10. Was killin' time tonight and realized it has been a looooooong time since I've been around these parts of the ol' WWW.  I haven't done much with miniatures or wargames in a really long time.  I think the last thing I finished was a half-squad of Space Marines some time last year.  Last year it was mostly chasing kids around and starting projects on the house.  Then I went and got myself into a long-distance relationship, which is still a thing to my delight, on top of playing taxi to kids.  Work also has been super crazy since New Year's Day and doesn't show any signs of letting up.  Just thought I'd drop in and say "hi"...so...Hi. *waves.

    What about CAV Strike Operations?  Bones Kickstarters are continuing and it is ramping up interest for the game again since you can now build a force very, very cheaply.


    There are reasons I don't play CAV:SO, but to be polite I'll leave it at "I don't like it."

    @Boaz  have you researched DBA or Hordes of the Things ?  They were a last century attempt to create rules that were model independent. 


    I think they are mired in the D6 though. 

    I've looked into them, still looking. :)

    Happened to me about a week or two ago.  Luckily I'm not in a secure building so I can still use my phone.

    I can't bring mine inside... :(

    Man, if they ever do this to me at my work, its gonna be rough. I mean, I might have to actually work throughout the entire. Who wants to do that?


    And please, that is not meant as being directed at OP, I always hate it when one of my websites I like to browse suddenly hits the firewall block at work. :(



    Oh, no worries. Some of my days are busy like today and I only get to check at lunch, other days we have nothing going on.

    Funny thing is, I can still get to the store...just not the forum.
