I got distracted from my inventory and assembled a Gnomic and a Despot.  The Gnomic is just as 'So ugly it's gorgeous' in person.

Eh, just finished my inventory, and the Gnomic is still ugly! (Apologies to Chris Lewis) The Falcon on the other hand? I wish I'd ordered two more than the three I got. It seems such a scrappy little overpowered puppy. I haven't checked the stats themselves, it's just the impression I get from holding it. Enjoyed the Thunderbirds as well, and there was another that was impressive in-hand, but I forget which one. They're all back in the box and I can't dump it again tonight to look. Too tired.

 

Did have to send email to Reaper as the core set was missing two of the tanks, but everything else was there. Not bad for an 85 piece order.

 

Now to decide to either paint them up one-by-one as the muse dictates, or set up some units that would be capable of going to the table and looking like a squad.

The Gnomic is ugly with character!  I only ordered 4 and already want more!

 

So far I know I'm missing one Despot out of my 16.  Will wait till I finish inventory on the rest to send email.

That's weird -- I was missing two tanks too.

 

The Emperor has two left legs. No biggie, I can fix that, but it'll take a bit of work.

 

I think the Tsuiseki aircraft are gonna be Kickstarter exclusives, though... the plastic is NOT suited to the thin wings and tail assembly, and they look for all the world like they're made of silly putty. Half an hour of dinkin' with 'em using a hot hair dryer and cold water got 'em into shape, but they were a mess on arrival. Perhaps future moldings could be made of rigid Bonesium.

 

Aside from that, I'm ready to take on the Rach Imperium any day... even dug out my first edition rulebook...

..

Was there by chance a note in the package noting the missingbtanks?

 

Not for mine. The core set was in a big Ziploc bag, and that was where they were missing for me.

No note, no paperwork, nothing. Big ziploc bag with the core set, and the two other items I ordered were OUTSIDE the plastic bag.

      This is the 22nd project my wife and I have worked side by side together on. Posted tbis on Facebook but first time adding our project to the forums. I hope you like our Interpretation of the KS  Mammoth not sure if the is a SKU for it. C&C more than welcome. Felt with it being a mammoth a more wintery theme should be more in keeping. Enjoy. Stay safe in these troubled times.

      I know there are a few folks that do Bolt Action and similar 28mm wargaming (@buglips), so I thought I'd bounce this out there.

      Story
      Railroads are an important means to transport troops, equipment, ammunition and all other kinds of supply to the front. Especially in a country as vast as the Soviet Union with it's endless steppes, only few reliable roads and no major rivers running in the direction of the German advance during Operation Barbarossa in World War II. 
      With this set of detailed buildings and rolling stock in 1/56 scale for 28mm figures you get the opportunity to recreate the crucial fighting around the Soviet railroad system.
      The kits focus on the major pieces of rolling stock available to the Soviet defenders: box cars, gondola cars and flat cars. And the mighty ALCo RSD-1 Diesel Engine which was made available under the US Lend-Lease Act.
      Also included is a typical rural train station with optional additional platforms for all who want to depict a Soviet - or captured German - supply depot, where heavy equipment like tanks and guns are being unloaded.
      And for all of you looking for an armored train - don't worry! We have you covered.
        Talking about railroad tracks:
      We did not see the need to reinvent the wheel, so all kits are designed to be used with
      4Ground Railroad Tracks (available as add-ons to the Kickstarter) or O Gauge Model Railroad Tracks The kits include optional parts enabling you to choose your favorite system while assembling. Going this route has allowed us to concentrate on designing and producing the rolling stock only, which has the advantage of an earlier fulfillment date for the Kickstarter.
      All models are highly detailed on the outside and inside. The interiors are easily accessible, as roofs are removable. In addition, all doors are moveable, which means you can open or close them during gameplay.

      A Viking Girl sculpted by Bobby Jackson. She was a lot of fun to paint since she had a lot of canvas for freehand work. She is also my first serious effort at NMM, so that's a well I plan to return to.
       
      I came to paint her when I asked my friends which model needed to get some love next. I presented a wizard, a ranger, and an armored lady fighter. One chimes in that she'd like to see the fighter (she being a practitioner of HEMA). Her boyfriend mentions something about boob armor. I said, no, she's got pretty normal armor. You want to see something egregious? THIS is egregious. My HEMA friend immediately says, "I'd like to change my vote." So here we are.
       
      Here's the WIP thread for her. Here's my next piece.

      This has sod all to do with miniatures, but I would be surprised if there were not people who might want one of these pins, for literally any reason at all.
      I'll let the campaign speak for itself, as I usually do; it is pins. There are, as the title implies, representations for most of the common faiths, in a literal rainbow of ... well, Pride rainbows.

      "You take your game seriously. Now it's time for a serious screen.
      In October of 2018, Dog Might released the first fully sculpted GM Screen, the Valhalla Screen. Since then, we have released over 30 more designs, including officially licensed screens for: Pathfinder, Call of Cthulhu, and Vampire: The Masquerade. We have also designed screens for you favorite shows, such as Relics and Rarities and the Critical Role stream of Undeadwood. Over the last year and a half, our Valhalla Screens have proven to be our most sought after product. "
       
      ... Would it surprise anybody here to know I want one? 
      If I can't have one, at least I can spread the word. ;p
