As you can see there is mantic and firestorm armada up for grabs today. As usual prefer to sell these in lots  but will consider offers for smaller lots. Any prices listed are just for general guidance and not what I am expecting to be paid.

First off the nice and easy firestorm armada. An almost $50 value new.

1 Terran Carrier NIB

Next up is the Mantic elves lot: Around $25.00 value.

1x 2man sprue of elves scouts

Followed by the Undead lot: around $25.00 value

After that we have the Basilea Lot: Around $45 value. (side note I do have some other models for this army runing around, if there is interest I will dig them out)
10x Sisterhood panther lancers
1 sprue of 10 men at arms

Finaly, I have a orcs Fight wagon/gore chariot from the kickstarter. Honestly I am not sure which one it is. Worth around $20.

As always if anything catches your fancy drop me a line. This should be the last one for now everything will be listed this weekend on Btown for about a week and then I will just Feebay it off. There is also some stuff that I havent posted on the For sale trade area, namely some 40k marines.

ME36: second box

The second box for ME36 showed up today and it seems to all be goblins. However, I can only positively identify two of them. The others I am guessing are goblins just based on there size and faces.

In other news I am painting a bunch at the moment. Mainly the 5th company and all my artillery stuff, I have also built a few gundams for my son. But more on all of that on this Saturday. Work has also worked itself out and my new job should actually provide me with some hobby time to. Anyway more in the future.

Review of Exodus wars miniatures as subs for Epic stuff

I have 4 reviews today.  First up is the Guild Support Centuria, These models aren't bad and the ap guns only had a tiny bit of flash. The rest of them were clean. I am using the Ap guns as tarantulas and the other ones as rapier platforms.
ap guns

not sure of name of them but I am using them as rapier platforms

comparison shot with thudd gun and mole mortar
 These guys are the Guild Shadow Knight Cell. I do like them the swords had a little bit of flash but otherwise they are nice. The one in the middle is an actual scout for comparison. The only one I don't like is the one on the far right. Mainly because they sit on the base annoyingly, other then that there are only two other sculpts.

I also got both round bases and the epic style ones. The holes on the rectangle epic style ones are a bit shallow in the holes but otherwise similar in size and function to the old gw ones. The round bases I like and I am mainly using for the artillery and maybe the bikes. More pictures and such as I get them painted.

Sell off part 1: the Romans

Alright everyone, as some of you know I have been working on weeding out my collection. In the case of these guys I literally want to completely change scale. Otherwise I would keep them. So here is what I have:
5 units of Legionaries, 20 men each with command (1 unit is technically veterans) painted
1 unit of 27 Auxilia, with command, painted
1 unit of 19 western Archers with command,  painted
1 unit of 20 Praetorians with command, painted
1 Unleash hell, general and dog, painted

All the models are from warlord games and  have magnetic bases from GF9, I will also include all the extra bits for these guys, 13 extra magnetic bases and if your interested some GW movement trays from when I first got these guys. There are also 2 sheets of shield transfers for legionaries, 1 sheet for veterans, 1 sheet for auxilia and 1 sheet for praetorians. With all the models, bases etc, the value is over $200.  Now do remember as I have complained about in the past I really do need to go back and touch all these guys up. So the ideal buyer would be willing to fix up the bit hats left to do and finish of there bases and have a very sizable force. For reference check out the Roman tab about for an idea of what you can make with these models. So if you are interested drop me a line and we can work out a deal. I am willing to ship anywhere in the world. Proceeds of this sale will mainly going to setting up either a 6mm or 10mm roman force and maybe another one. I would also consider trades.

Thanks for looking guys. This is more of an FYI for my regular readers, I will post this in a few days on other websites and then ebay in a week or so if no one bites.

Painting Table Saturday #17

Alright, I have done very little painting even though I have free time at the moment. Mainly sleeping and catching up on stuff around the house. However, the main thing I have been working on is the first earth shaker on carriage. I have 2 more to build next and then I will also build some heavy mortars and thudd guns. In short I am doing some IG artillery for fun. Please remember this is still a work in progress. Mainly it needs some green stuff clean up and some more 40k bits.

Other than that I have been trying to assemble the last of the epic stuff and getting ready a sell list.
More as I get it done. Review on Monday.

Where I have been

So life in general has been going fine but at work everything kinda hit the fan. The place basically is falling apart. So I got out while the getting was good. Last week was also two holidays which screwed with things a bit. Yesterday I spent catching up on stuff around the house, spending time with the kids and started putting out crap for a new job. I also started scratch building some stuff. So I have a bunch of things to report.  Today I even did a little bit of painting.

Spending: I spent a big chunk of change mainly on some kits I want to use as a main component of my scratch build I also bought some other dud dads to help out with the process.  Mainly it was   3 guntanks from the HGUC series of  gundam. These guys are going to form the bases for my scratch built earth shaker/heavy mortars. Along with tubing and such for doing all the scratch building I have planed.

So I spent $68.80 in total.
I am quickly approaching my self imposed goal.
So June: -$68.80
YTD: -$268.88

I will post more updates over the coming days as I get stuff done. I will also be showing off the proxy scouts in next few days with a review as well. I will also hopefully be on track for a painting table this weekend. ME 36 is also in full swing and I will post when I get stuff.
