Getting ready to hit Fighting Piranha Graphics again for decals. Thankfully I have tons of usable Templar decals from 40K, now to figure out what I need for the Malvernis to go with the Sea Fox for BT.

As a heads up, Talon now stocks the CAV ones from them on their site.  Sadly, like pretty much everything not a mini (or rogue legion, grrr), it's US only.

Yikes!  Was looking at the samples on the update section and decaling will be a nightmare on these. There are almost no flat surfaces on any of them. Gorgeous sculpts, but wow...

Gonna wait til they are in hand before I decide on decals.

I've never used them (or found them locally) but Microscale's Micro Sol and Micro Set are supposed to be really good for surfaces like that.

Yes, Set is your general purpose (the blue label) for decals. Swash some Set on teh surface, lay down the decal & let it pull the decal onto the surface. Sol, (red label) is short for SOLvent, so it a bit harsher on the decal but it allows the decals to conform to the surface. You just dip a clean brush into each & apply to the surface like paint. I don't recommend your painting brush.....:lol:. I use a dedicated brush for each bottle, syn brushes work great! Note" Set is used pre-decal & SOL is used after the decal is down.

 

There is a stronger solvent out there called Walther's Solva-Set (or Solvaset). This stuff is strong! A built in brush comes in the cap but you just brush some over a wet decal (after you've monkeyed with it to get into place, pointed toothpicks are great for moving a floating decal into place, & that is what SET will help you with) & the decal will almost instantly start to conform to the surface, now matter how many curves, dips, holes etc etc). Both Solva & SOL make the decal very fragile so no touchy after applying.

I have used both Microset and Microsol in the past and had good results, but like Haldir said no touchy! It is a one shot deal usually. And I want to see how large an area we will have to work with. Let's face it, with the numbers of CAVs and vehicles to paint, waiting a few days for decals to arrive won't be a problem.

So, wonder how things are looking... Starting to get worried paint is going to be shipping in freezing weather due to the various snow we're already getting in some parts of Canada, and how it's being forecasted for a good pprtoon over the next week.. 

 

But mainly I'm just curious because I want to know what the shipping cost is going to be! ::P:

Looks like I'm moving in early November (if all goes to plan) so I'm curious how things are going as well.

If it winds up being winter, I wonder if one day shipping / overnight will be an option - it would at least hopefully possibly reduce the issues of freezing paint.

This is why I ship directly to the post office (see Canada Post Flexdelivery). Our weather is not a friend to paints.

 

Being so early in fall, I didn't even think of the coming cold.

FlexDelivery still won't save it being in a truck for days on end with no heat in the trailer if it's cold enough outside. 

 

Hence why my inquiry regarding if it does wind up being delayed into November if we can get one day shipping.

If it's in Canada Post trucks, they are heated. Though any trailer truck prior to that, I can't say.

 

This is the first time I've wondered how our packages are stored when they reach the seemingly eternal limbo of Canada Customs. But considering the milder climate near the border, our paints *should* be safe.

It depends on the vehicle.  If it's a contractor, odds are your package will see some heat.  If it's in one of the Ford Transits they use, package will see something resembling heat if it's in the back, up front is dependent on what driver sets heat at. 

 

If it's in a P500 (the larger, one ton trucks), those things are terrible and barely provide any heat for the driver, and everything in the back does not have heat unless a separate heater is installed back there. When I was with UPS I drove a P500. They aren't bad trucks, but cabin heat is not once of their strengths.

I'd suspect in some sort of barely warmed up warehouse, like most companies. Aka there's heat, but it always feel like 10C or so depending on where you are in the building, and how long ago the last time was someone opened the bay doors.

      Expansion Box ($40, so $120 total)

       
      We will ship your rewards at our cost to our international hubs. Depending on where in the world you are, we will either ship to you from our hub in the UK (EU backers), China (Asia Pacific backers), Singapore (Singaporean backers), Canada (Canadian backers), Australia (Australia and New Zealand backers) or Atlanta (USA and the rest of the world). Following is a list of rough estimates for shipping a standard game package (4kg volumetric weight). Keep in mind these are just estimates, and costs may rise based on weight increases from unlocked stretch goals and any optional buys you choose.
      USA: $10-$20 to most states. $50 to Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico.  CANADA: $15-$30 to most cities.  LATIN AMERICA: $70-$80 to most countries.  ASIA: $10 to China, Hong Kong, and Singapore. $35 to most other countries (we can’t predict an estimate cost to Malaysia). OCEANIA: $20-$45 to Australia. $40 to New Zealand.  AFRICA: $95 to most countries.  EUROPE: $20-$30 to most countries.   • $35 to Norway, Switzerland, Finland, Estonia, and Latvia.   • $50 to Bosnia/Herzegowina, Croatia, and Iceland.   • $70-$80 to Israel, Liechtenstein, and Serbia.  • $90 to Belarus. Unfortunately, different import laws and customs have made it impossible for CMON to ship games to certain specific countries.
      *WE DO NOT SHIP TO:* Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan and Afghanistan.
      Basically a Tweaked version of Arcadia Quest designed to run faster and be easier to set up, with Sci-Fi-ification

      About
      The Edge: Dawnfall is new miniature Board Game by Awaken Realms for 1-4 players. It was created by Michał Oracz (man behind 13 years of Neuroshima Hex and recent hit Cry Havoc) and it brings next level of competitive gameplay to the table. Fresh, exciting, pure and rewarding.
      It’s a living organism with a very passionate community. It’s thousands of hours of development, hundreds of unique art pieces, over hundreds of pages of rich and unique campaigns, 7 extremely asymmetric and unique factions and finally and most importantly a fast, dynamic and very exciting skirmish game with tons of cinematic skills and turn the tide moments.
      This is a second Edge the Boadgame Kicstarter, a reprint of our naive 2016 kickstarter promise of an unreasonably high amount of content that not only we still managed to reach, but even overdeliver. It’s our biggest and most ambitious project yet, it’s our favorite child, our blood tears and sweat. It’s a Beast!

      Remember this thread?
       
      You know, the Yedharo/GT project that was cancelled and they said they'd reluanch it?
       
      Well they relaunched it.
       
      There's a lot less units this time and far more characters (some of whom appear to have been inspired by the Atlantis Dwarfs or are attempting to copy their success but with a Yedharo/GT spin on it).
       
      I might jump in for a small handful of character models but I won't go in big on this one. Then again why would dwarfs go big? They're small. It's one of their defining features :).
       
      'cause Atlantis did dwarven women with shaved sides and some goat riders......
       

       
      He's baaaaack!
       

       
      She got off the goat
       

       
      Hammer Man is back again
       

       
      Apparently she's really "Busty"
       

       
      At least the leaping Trollslayer is back again :)
       

       
      Mr Ugly Sword is back again (don't know why).
       

       
      I like this new hammer man
       

       
      The ugly rectangular shield unit with hammers is back (the only returning unit).
      They really should've fixed those shields and the "3rd edition/Dragonpunk helmets".
       

       
      The Bloodbowl team is back as well (obviously).
