Department of Acquisitions and Enablement, the Second


Recommended Posts

Last week had numerous goodies come in (my order from FlowToys (which had two sets of poi (one was PodPoi), a ToroFlux, black hipsack, and some bags) as well as the order from Higgins Brothers (several three ball sets of 2.5" juggling balls)

^Monday saw those come in, which has me more or less "caught up" at least purchase wise on Code One products for our factions...  November is going to hurt the wallet though, since that's when the TAGs are coming out...

 

Last night?  Last night saw a "one last hurrah", aka one last order of things that can freeze before we start getting cooler temperatures around here...  Ordered a bunch of weathering stuff, basing stuff, and new tools!

Weathering:

  • AK Interactive kits: Aircraft Exhaust Stains, Aircraft Engine Effects, Aircraft Landing Gear, Basic Weathering Effects, Decay & Abandoned, Burnt Vehicles
  • Basing Materials: Three types of Woodland Scenics Field Grass (Harvest Gold, Natural Straw, Light Green), Army Painter Tufts (Mountain + Highlands), Vallejo Tufts (Beige (small, medium, large, dense large), Dry Large, Autumn Medium)
  • Tools: Tamiya Side Cutters (74093), AK Interactive Survival Weathering Brush Set, AK Six well trays (two versions, the square and the circular ones), Tamiya 74104 smooth double-cut files, Tamiya 74003 Angled Tweezers, Mr. Paint Tray 10-pack, Vallejo Pipettes Small 12-pack
  • Vallejo Stone & Cement Pigment Set
  • Various liquids: Tamiya Cement, Mr Mark Softener, Mr Mark Setter, Tamiya Black Panel Line Accent, 46mL bottle of Tamiya X-20 Thinner

That order originally started as "huh, I want to get a few pigments and basing supplies" and just kind of, uh, royally snowballed once I found out a place I was going to be putting an order in at anyways (but has a flat $12.95 CAD shipping fee) carries several of the products and kits I was looking at... The things one does to pay shipping just the one time... :lol::devil::ph34r:  Well, that and some of my tools really do need replacing - my files for example, are worn right down, and cake up almost instantly.  In their defense, I did pick them up 15-16 years ago (or longer) and they've seen a LOT of use...

Well, Mrs Hamster finished her 3D print job a little early.

I have acquired US citizenship!

Acquired a house.

I have acquired more stuff for SW Xwing, much to my son's delight.  My only problem is that he's now discovered that Legion exists as well and is drooling over that too...  :rolleyes:  I mean, having more Star Wars miniatures in one's house is a good thing, right?  Maybe one day... 

I think we'll focus on Xwing for now as there's still a bunch of stuff that I want.

Legion is pretty fun, at least the few games I've played so far. It's never too early to start getting Legion figs....remember you have to assemble (and paint) them.  And I don't recommend trying to paint too many Stormtroopers at a time.  So much white and black.... ::D:

Thanks.  I have started looking into it as it may be a good Santa gift this year.  He did ok building some Tau last year, though he did get burned out with some of the more fiddly details.  My only issue is he's more clones and separatists than Empire and Rebels...  A youth...  I just want a reason to make a Tattoine table...  :ph34r:

The bolded/italicized words are your reason.

The Clones and Separatists have some cool models.  I've picked some up but we can't get the Clone Wars starters up here right now (I'm told they should be in stock by December) if you are going through a flgs  at least.

I've started watching Clone Wars on D+ and it is much better than the prequel movies......

And you can always play Rebels or Imps against the prequel armies....it doesn't make movie sense, but they play fine against each other.....
